    Well, this used to be the way to tell Cakewalk to automatically turn off Local Control... not sure if it's still used.

    1. In the directory where SONAR is installed, double-click on the TTSseq.ini file to open it. (In the Cakewalk Core directory).
    2. In the [Options] section, add the line:     SendLocalOff=1
    3. Save the file and close it.
    4. When you launch SONAR, it automatically sends a Local Off message to your keyboard.

    If you don't have an Options section with the line SendLocalOff=1  in your TTSseq.ini file, you could try adding it, then change the line to SendLocalOff=0

    That should disable it (maybe?) 

    Make a backup copy of your TTSseq.ini file before changing it... in case I'm giving you garbage advice 🤪

     

    *** UPDATE ***

    My keyboard doesn't respond to Local On/Off messages, but I tested the above option with LoopMIDI and MIDI-OX  and it does indeed work.

    If SendLocalOff is not in the TTSseq.ini file at all or is present and is set to 1, Cakewalk sends the LocalOff message to each midi device. If SendLocalOff=0 is present in the [Options] section, Cakewalk does not send the LocalOff message.

    BTW - The TTSseq.ini file is probably in C:\Users\<USER NAME>\AppData\Roaming\Cakewalk\Cakewalk Core

    Hi, I simply can not find that file on my computer. Just updated Cakewalk as well. Do you think they may have changed the file name since bandlab took over?

    Can you elaborate? I'm interested, but I haven't run into issues in these areas.

    Well, if I have an external insert, say on a bus, I can't solo that bus... why? If the insert is on a track you can solo it. Why not a bus? Very annoying, if you have a bunch of busses and you want to solo one (that has an external insert) you can't, you have to mute everything else to hear that bus in solo. 

    Also, if there's an external insert on a bus and you try to (fast bounce) export anything from another track, not having anything to do with the external insert bus, you can't, you have to retitle your export and do it again with the insert turned off. It should just be a dialogue box that says: you have an active external insert, it will be ignored on this export or something to that effect.

  3. Some ideas:

    Fix staff view, who cares if there are other notation programs? You program midi in Cakewalk, you want to have proper notation and not have to go through a nightmare exporting into another program. Why not have Sibelius or another good notation program work within cakewalk? Or just get a notation expert to suggest how to fix it? It's been terrible for decades. 

    Fix problems with sync to mp4 and QuickTime files. Composers can't easily use cakewalk because it won't sync properly with the most popular video files used in the industry. 

    Fix issues with external insert, can't solo bus, ignore on export feature

    Update CAL scripts to this century

    Fix default colors to be more visible when selected/deselected 

    Fix scrubbing so it actually works smoothly like other DAWs

    Update graphics to work better in 4K

    Love Cakewalk, but these issues have been ignored forever and are things that are important to professional users.

    Its not Cakewalk crashing  its the UAD driver crashing. Bluescreens can never be caused by user mode programs, only kernel mode drivers can bluescreen.
    This is not a question we can answer, only UA can debug and solve this issue so I suggest contacting their technical support with the recipe.

    Thanks Noel... just looking at possibilities 

    Cheers

    @Noel Borthwick my colleague is blue screening when opening Cakewalk on Windows build 2004  using UAD Apollo firewire and when set to higher buffers like 2048 and sometimes 1024

    Wondering if you've heard anything about conflicts with this Windows build? I have been staying on an older build because I also had conflicts. He is unable to roll back to the older one now.

    Thanks

    Jono 

    Perhaps something else causing blue screen when opening Cakewalk with UAD. @Noel Borthwick - could you let me know if you saw this? Thanks

    At that (high) buffer size, I wonder if it's a case where CbB needs more memory allocated - there's an aud.ini setting that changes this for plug-ins, but I forget the details (ExtraPluginBufs - default 0, I believe).  Might be worth digging into that?

    I think this is all related to a recent Windows build that has a compatibility issue. Unfortunately it's been too long to roll back, those windows files were deleted after ten days. Interesting what you mention about the aud.ini though. Not sure it will help but I saw a few people saying it made some larger files have less issue with the plugins. Thanks!

  8. I have a friend with an Apollo firewire unit.

    If he sets the Apollo to 2408 buffer size, everything okay but the second he opens Cakewalk, blue screen of death!

    I had a similar problem with having a motherboard soundcard online, when I disabled it, the problem went away.

    We've eliminated the possibility of any other sound device by completely disabling them, so only UAD.

    What could still be causing Cakewalk to bug out Windows enough for a BSOD when UAD set to 2408 buffer? (PS, this could be 48 kHz or 96kHz, doesn't make a difference.

    Any help appreciated!

    Thanks very much!

     


  9. Hi, I asked this before but didn't get an answer.

    Each time I render a track within Cakewalk, like bounce to clips or render a soft synth..as it renders I see a message saying "resampling" 

    Why is Cakewalk resampling on a render within the same file? I see it all the time. 

    First I see the "mixing down" then it says "sample rate conversion" in the window with the progress meter. Like two very fast and separate processes.

    Please, if anyone has a clue, let me know. Cheers


  10. I have a file that requires a large buffer size - 2048, and there is a fair amount of plugins and delay compensation going on.

    The video I'm running goes out of sync because of the delay compensation, is there a way to have the video respond to it?

    Trying to adjust the trim time of the video doesn't work as I'd need a negative value which it doesn't have.

    Thanks

  11. Hey, I have a session at 48 kHz, a fair amount of tracks and processing using UAD plugins among others Waves, Fab Filter etc. Also an external insert.

    The session requires a buffer size of 2048 to handle everything.

    The audio and plugs are working fine. Even looking CPU usage etc. yet the midi is now missing notes randomly, all over the place

    So frustrating.  What now??

    Anything that might help, please let me know.

    Thanks


  12. Update: I sort of have it going but still have a question.

    I created a midi track sending to the Axe FX, I insert a patch change, set to controller 32.

    Then I can choose from a list of general midi sounds like organ or acoustic grand piano etc.

    If I select one of these it changes the Axe FX patch  to the number that corresponds to the sound I pick. Like, if I choose "electric grand piano" it will change the Axe FX to patch #3. Great! Almost there...

    The Axe FX has banks A, B, and C. Is there a way to access those banks and also a patch number rather than an instrument name?

     

    Thanks for any help!

    Save the presets for the DSP-heavy effects, copy the audio tracks, and render then with the effect. Mute the tracks you copied. Now you can delete the effects, but if you need to edit the sound, you can always delete the rendered tracks and try again using the original ones. 

    Another option is to premix the song except for the track you want to process with the external effect. Create a new project with the premix and the track you want to process. Process the track, export it, and import it into your original project.

    Hope this helps :)

    Yes, I can think of workarounds. I would export any audio dry and then save the file as a template without audio. Reopen the template and bring in the audio resampled to say 48kHz.

    I was more wondering if the external insert can handle this. If the buffer is at 2048 I'm able to get the external insert in sync, why not at 4096?
