  1. Hi there...

    Sometimes when using melodyne as a region effect,  I'll click on  the blobs of the vocal and hear the audio when I move them to different pitches etc. However sometimes it doesn't play when I click the blobs.

    Seems random. Does anyone know why they wouldn't always play when you click on them? 

  2. Thanks, I don't believe you can save anything regarding "mp3 export options" which is a second window that pops up once you export to mp3.

    I've tried making a program template with the mp3 settings but it doesn't return on a new project. Also tried making an export preset but it doesn't affect the "mp3 export" window which is secondary.

    oh well. Thanks


  3. Sorry, I mean organize like in Sonar, you could click "remove empty layers" and it would remove redundant layers, put clips at the top and just clean it all up in one click.

    I don't see anything that does this, it can become quite a mess and it's tricky to get in there and do each clip one at a time to organize them better.  


  4. It would be great to be able to save your device driver settings for inputs and outputs. 

    Sometimes you need to use a virtual driver or something and it's a long proceedure clicking on and off all of your ins and outs.

    A "save as" or "Save configuration" button would be awesome!

  5. Hey there,

    i just had a Cakewalk session open, I chose Reaktor as a plugin to run through "the voice" plugin. All worked great. Set up is like a vocoder with midi input etc.

    Anyhow, I opened a new file and went to insert Reaktor and it wasn't in the list anymore! (Under Native Instruments)

    What could cause it to disappear? I can still open that first file and Reaktor inserted into the session no problem.

    Anyone have an idea??

    Thank you!!

    I use Cakewalk's Channel Tools which came with SONAR.

    The key is to keep the input mode as Stereo, then reduce the Mid gain to nothing to solo the sides. Double clicking the Mid gain brings it back to unity gain.

    PS. Is Channel Tools not available for the Bandlab version? I always used to have it. Don't see it now.

    Do you have midi chase turned on in prefs?

    I do, but checking that helped me notice  that "include note events" was also checked. That's what I'm looking for. If that's switched on it will just play the note from the start regardless of where you are. If I turn it off,  It will wait until a re-trigger before playing any long notes.  This is fine because I just want it to play so I can overdub a part. If everything isn't playing at once that's fine  as long as the tracks eventually come in. At least there is no out of sync tempo based stuff going on.

    Thanks for the help!

    If you are using MIDI long notes and expecting to start playback in the middle of any of those notes, that is almost guaranteed not to align with the rest of your score. The reason is that the DAW only has two choices when starting playback in the middle of any note: 1. start the note at the beginning or 2. don't play the note. In case 1, some kinds of synth voices can't possibly align when started at just any place in the score because they are being started at the "wrong" time.

    If you were to freeze those notes into their audio equivalent, you'd then be able to start playing anywhere.

    If you're not talking about long MIDI notes, then never mind. It must be something else.

    Ya, that would likely apply here as there are some longer held midi notes. The weird thing is, some of them re-trigger quite often, but they are time based and they go off sync, like a percussion groove for instance, you'd think if it was re-triggered at a new bar it would go in sync but it's not. Needs to start from the beginning.

    Anyhow, thanks


  9. Hi there,

    I'm having the issue where I have an external insert on a bus, if I solo the bus or any other bus I don't get any sound.

    I see on Google that it's an issue that's never been fixed for Cakewalk.

    I just wondered if anyone knew why it happens or if there has been any  thought of trying to fix it?

    I know I can use folders and mute them, just a lot of work in large files.




  10. - I have a second monitor, which I rarely turn on. Is is not 4K but I don't change any settings if I use it. My main 4K monitor is connected by display port, the 2nd one is HDMI with adapter into display port.

    - Occasionally I will use "splash streamer" which is an app that lets me view my monitor on a tablet, I use it when I'm recording alone and I'm several feet away from my desk. Again, I rarely use it. It runs wireless over my internet connection. I don't change any settings to use it and I don't think I've had the problem when using it ever.

    - I set most of my apps to run as admin always. I find I get conflicts that only go away in admin mode. This is with various programs.  I can try turning admin off but there have been issues I have learned about, right here on this forum where I post an issue , perhaps about working with another program, say as a tool and folks have helped resolve my issue by having me make sure the programs involved are all set to admin. 

    - the issue always happens at random times, say, after a reboot or I'll close cakewalk to do something else and reopen.

    That's all the info I can think of right now.
