  1. OK....Hey, thanks so much for your time and expert knowledge. I really appreciate it! Kawika
  2. Thanks....that all made perfect sense! And, if I were to use a "simple (video) editor" for my relatively basic needs, what would you recommend? Per "For what you are asking, you could also do the video work in a simpler editor"
  3. OK....this makes sense: " I edit the video as needed in a video sled, export as HD AVI (or Mpg4), import into a DAW, then score to picture. Mix & export audio back to video sled, then post it up to the director & music coordinator at the movie production house." My purposes are pretty pedestrian. I am just putting together short, live band vignettes to garner future dates at clubs. Agents and club owners only want to hear shorts. So, it seems to me, (1) I could edit my video in a video software program, which in my case is also audio. Then save as MPg4. (2) Then import that video/audio file into Cakewalk to use my audio plug ins. Will Cakewalk accept my edited video? If so, (3) I can then export as a Mpg4 thereby editing both video and audio. Is that right?
  4. Hey Thanks. Don't some of the video programs "find" my plug ins (e.g., Sound Toys, Waves etc)?
  5. I just found Cyberlink Power Director 13 on one of my computers; apparently, I bought it 10 years ago. Perhaps that has what I need?
  6. Thanks for the info on Davinci Resolve. I appreciate it and will check it out, now! By-the-way, I don't mind paying 2-300.00 if need be, for an intuitive easy to learn program. Really, the only thing I'll be doing video-wise is cutting, moving, and cross-fading. Hmmmmm, As I think about, it would be cool to zoom in after-the-fact at the editing stage; though , I don't know if that's possible. Thanks
  7. OK....Video editor not DAW....got it. Regarding VideoStudio Pro: Will it recognize my 3rd party (e.g., SoundToys) audio plugins that Cakewalk recognizes? Also, anyone else recommend a Video editor that will allow me to use my 3rd party audio plugins. VideoStudioPro sounds like a great deal....just asking. thanks Kawika
  8. I would like to import live shows recorded on an iphone and edit the video i.e., cherry pick sections of songs while using my audio plug ins (e.g., compression , eq verb). Anyone know of a good DAW for that application? Thanks, Kawika
  9. Wow, bitflipper and SirWilly!!! Thanks for all the work-arounds. I have been working on this problem for the last 2 days, 4hours per day. It was very frustrating because of the intermittent nature of the problem: That is, sometimes just playing and/or recording for a full 2 minutes without incident and sometimes the problem happened after 2 notes/events. I did spray -dust the wheel. Anyway I contacted Novation and we will see what they have to say. Between your plentiful suggestions (thanks again guys/gals) and Novation support, I 'm confident the problem will be solved if only for buying a new controller. In the mean time, I found my old 2-octave-midiman Oxygen8 in my garage. Surprisingly, I was able to locate a Legacy driver. It works great! I can finally do some music, today. Thanks again, Happy New year, Kawika
  10. oops, I thought I had it. It will be fine for a few recordings and then suddenly jump up 1/4 tone. I checked event list and there is a pitch wheel notated at the point of departure. I tried using Automap unsuccessfully and am now using ACT.
  11. Hi Byron, Nope, nothing in either Plat or bL.
  12. Hi, In attempt to use Automap4, only Sonar Plat was a recognized as a DAW choice, not Cakewalk-band lab. Anybody know why? thanks, David
  13. Thank you all for your time! I found the problem: Apparently my 2-year old son turned a pot on the midi controller which is designated to pitch. Bringing it back to 0 solved the problem. I should have looked there first. Thanks again!
  14. By the way, "Event List" does not indicate any "pitch wheel" activity. Thanks
  15. It happens in all projects, and in all soft synths e.g., cakewalk SI electric piano, and Omnisphere. It does not seem to matter if it is VST2 or VST3. It happens with the mouse as a trigger. It is consistently 1/4 pitch out. I have wiggled the controller pitch wheel. I am up to date with Windows and CakeWalk band. thoughts? thanks!
  16. Hi , This problem happens even when triggering a soft synth with the mouse. Does that eliminate the controller as the culprit? thanks, David
  17. Hi, thanks, All audio files are in tune (checked against multiple sources such as 2 different gtr tuners, youtube-pitch examples, tuning fork etc). I am sure the difference in pitch in the midi instruments is around a 1/4 tone (between a half step such as B and C.)
  18. Hi, I haven't recorded in a few months and came back to find all of my midi instruments (e.g., cakewalk, wave piano, Omnisphere) all producing sounds that are around 1/4 tone sharp to standard 440. I checked it with multiple sources. They are consistent with each other. Is there some sort of global tuning to be found in Cakewalk by Band Lab? Thanks, Kawika

    Thanks John

    I think I screwed up: So I need to right this ship moving forward and see if the loops are to found in a back up, If not, I do have an unopened bottle of Jim Beam. I must have deleted all my loops somehow during "clean audio folder". The good news is , I did not lose any audio attached to ongoing projects. So, I checked my Folder Locations, and it reads: 😄 Cakewalk Content\Audio Lib\ loops. My Global Audio Folder is simply D:\ The few loops I have in the C drive are still there. My intention was to put my loops on my D Drive entitling a folder "loops" (which is now empty). How can I set up my system to guard against similar problems moving forward? Thanks, Kawika

    Hi, Yes, I was looking in Media Browser from within Cakewalk. So....I went to my D Drive, where the loops folders live....and no files in the folders! Thhis is concerning as I have/had 600.00 worth of loops. I am running latest Cakewalk. suggestions? Could I have lost it all using "clean audio folder" while working on a song? Thanks, Kawika

    Hi, Any ideas on the following problem: None of my loops folders show any data. Thanks, Kawika
