  1. Woo, found the EZ answer, pun intended. EDIT PLAY STYLE SCREEN, lol. I hated the screen and would accidently bring up up with some kind of accidental double click. But looking on YT I found the perfect vid showing you can highlight any drum in the screen and quantize it. That is AWESOME!!. So this quick info will be here for anyone else who has this question. Now I need to reconsider if I even need to set each drum to it's own Cakewalk track. Yeah, I like using my lx4i0 relab verb for snare, but I have always found the EZ Drummer reverbs and compressors sound just fine but I could never figure out how to control reverb amounts on indiv drums. I like more verb on a snare than on a kick many times and I don't believe EZ allows you indiv drums sends to it's own reverb. Maybe there is a way in this play style editor, it's worth checking for sure. Anyone know if EZ allows indiv reverb send amounts on the drums?
  2. Help needed folks. I chose to have EZ Drummer output each drum to separate Cakewalk channels/tracks. One of the reasons someone mentioned doing this for on a YT vid was to be able to quantize each drum separately so you don't screw up the beats. I like to use my mouse to sometimes record hand class right in EZD, just clicking on the handclap drum in the appropriate song parts. But, I then figured, well, since I see the hand claps on their own track in Cakewalk meters, I have one shots set to channel 9, and I armed the track to record so it could record the hand claps as midi to the Cakewalk track so I could then quantize the claps to get their timing corrected, BUT EVEN THOUGH THE CLAPS ARE SHOWING ON THE TRACK 9 METERS, THAT TRACK RECORDS NOTHING WHY? Obviously EZ Drummer is not sending midi info out to the tracks Cakewalk has assigned to it. This is crazy. Yes, I know that I can do a bunch of work around, I mean, just render ez Drummer song track as a full midi file, import it in as a midi track then select only the handclaps and then quantize them, but it seems ridiculous that we can't just frickin arm the the Cakewalk track and record midi, why in the world is ez Drummer not able to send midi info to the tracks?. I also tried to just insert a normal midi track and set the input up on channel 9 for the one shot track, but nope, EZ is not sending and midi info out to the tracks, just meter infor and the sound. It just seems insane that we have to render all the drums as one big midi file and import that. And I can drag midi loops out of ez browser right to a track, but for midi I record into ez using my mouse, well, THERE IS NO midi loops of them, they are not in the browser. And it doesn't look like you can select just one drum in ez and only quantize that drum or recording you made in it. EZ forces me to quantize all the drums together or am I missing a way to do this in EZ? Thanks for any help or suggestions.
  3. My gosh, I understand it. I just put the extra send on the track and the output gave me the firconp in the vfx bus as an option. Now I understand that when I turn the sc ext option on in fircomp it won't hear the 2 FX plugs above it in the bus, but will just listen to the send from the track. I FINALLY UNDERSTAND IT. THANK YOU.!!!
  4. Thanks, ok, so it is 2 sends on the track itself. I would like to learn this as I am setting up my template so I don't want have to setup automation everytime I do a lead vocal. Once I get it setup in my template I only have to go in and set up the comp. I did finally put fircomp in the vfx bus after the delay and reverb, but I was just sending the single send from the track to that fx bus and the delay and verb were going into the fircomp. That seemed to work some but still not very good. I'll try your suggestion.
  5. I am going out of my mind trying to setup a compressor to sidechain a lead vocal delay and reverb. Ok, I have a lead vocal track. I have the Slate mix rack on that in the effects bin. I have a stereoo bus send on that track as well. That send is sent to my Lead vocal FX bus where I have Vahalla delay and after that a Lexicon vocal plate from pcm reverb. Right below that bus I have another bus while fircomp2 alone on it. Now, I I right clicked on the vfx bus and chose external insert and chose the fircomp2 in the bus right before that. But, I am totally confused on how to do this. A vid on yt says I should have the vocal send on the track, NOT to the vfx bus, but sent to the fircomp2 bus. Now, I am so mixed up I am out of my mind . To make it worse, fircomp 2 has an external sidechain option and some presets activate that. How would I use that? Am I trying to set all this up manually when fircomp2 can do it automatically? If so, How? I don't see any button that lets me choose some kind of insert to the side Hain in fircomp2, just an on off switch. Yeah, I hope someone can lead me through this in simple English, like explaining it to a 12 year old. I mean step by step, like" ok, put this there, now right click and choose this, do do this, now record a vocal and test. Thanks for any help guys. I just want to tamper down my fx when singing and have it come back up as vocal lines end and such. Thanks.
  6. I had been using an old drive that used to be a win 7 system drive. I sold the laptop, mounted the drive in a USB external drive and never formatted it. I had files stored on it and the old windows folder, users folder, and the program files folders were using up a ton of space. So I tried to delete the. Win 10 nor win 7 would let me. I tried everything, adding permissions, all kinds of stuff. Finally I had to spend a long while copying my files over to another drive and just formatted the drive, then had to copy all my files back over to it, it took hours. This permission crap is just insane. But anyway, for anyone in the future having this problem, go in to the security section and turn off real TIME PROTECTION, that damn folder access thing will probably be on with it. Wow what a long day screwing with this.
  7. I GOT IT. I had to turn off REAL TIME PROTECTION!!! I had done this before but it says it is only temporary and it had turned on again. There is a section that says "Controlled folder access". It says that real time protection has to be on to use it and it was back on. I turned it off and T racks installed perfectly. Jeez this win 10 virus stuff is maddening, not to mention all the permission crap to delete folders.
  8. Gonna run the check disk anyway, but seems like I would have had problems with other installation s too. Just ran it and it did say fixing drive C but did it really fast and finished. Now the same thing is happening while trying to setup my T-racks 5, same issue, An error occured while trying to create a file in the destination directory Setup was unable to create the directory 😄 users guitar documents Ik multimedia Error 2 the system cannot find the file. This is some kind of Win 10 thing not allowing programs to make a folder in the users folder. I have my account security slider all the way down. I turned off windows defender firewall. What in the world is going on?

  10. This is the only program that has had any trouble installing.
  11. Here we go, installing, it a quarter way. Holy crap, it did the Overloud thing again, but I hit skip it again and it also did the not enough diskspace again but I hit launch and it ran, Cakewalk is up. Completing the Cakewalk setup wizard. Awesome so far.
  12. Doing the setup now, it is downloading files. It doing the other files like the studio instruments, my fingers are crossed.
  13. Ooh, just realized something. Was looking at my downloads in Firefox and realized my time was set wrong. I bought the computer from the west coast and the time was still set to west when I am on central time. I just set it and did the removal of registry entries laid out in the clean install. Just rebooted and getting ready to try again, I'll keep you updated.
  14. I didn't delete folders first, I first uninstalled everything with the remove programs, only then did I delete leftover Cakewalk folders. Just tried to install again. Still says it cannot create the Overloud folder. Here is what it says. "An error occured while trying to create a file in the destination directory"C: users public documents Overloud Error 2. The system cannot find the file specified. This happens right near the end of installation. Unreal. I go into users and public and I see a "public documents," folder, NOT a folder that just says documents. Is this install for windows 10? The installer thinks there should be a folder just called documents, but there is only one called public documents. But, in public documents I found the Overloud folder and the file, but I deleted the folder thinking it might have been causing problems. Unreal, went to recycle bin and restored the folder. The file is there, I unchecked the read only but that makes no difference It says it can't create the directory but the directory was there and so was the file. I don't know what to do. Looks like Public is just a name that win 10 uses for us. I tried to make a folder just named documents and it said there was already a folder named public documents. This is just maddening.
  15. Ok, uninstalled everything. Turned off my windows defender firewall, is that the virus program?. If not, what to I look for in the control panel? I deleted Cakewalk folders in program files and program files 86. I still have the downloaded Cakewalk install from the web installer, the theme editor installer, and Studio instruments installer. I moved those 3 to my desktop. Now, I'm giving up for the night. Please give me all info anyone has and I'll try again tomorrow. Should I download assistant again or just use the Cakewalk installer downloaded from the web installer? Doesn't Cakewalk require Bandlab assistant to run? Thanks so far guys. I have to figure this nightmare out. I just went in to roaming and deleted everything Cakewalk and assistant
