  1. Man, I just grabbed Synthway's RetroMagix Harpsichord, for Kontakt. Absolutely blown away by this marvelous VSTi. If you're into Bach, check this thing out. Only $24.
  2. I'm almost too embarrassed to admit this, but I think I found the cause. I left my Jethro Tull songbook on my MIDI controller keyboard while messing around with something else. Saved the project to answer a call. Came back a few hours later, loaded it up, and started scratching my head. DOH!
  3. See edit above. I'm just going to write this off as a glitch. No sense in worrying myself silly.
  4. Here is the CWP, a WIP. You may not have the same VST's but you can at least poke around and see what I'm missing. X-Eyed Mary.cwp EDIT: Just looked at the bass track in my MIDI program. Those lines are all CC#75. Don't know how they got there.
  5. Here's a larger screenie. Tried what you suggested. No change. Even rebooted the machine. Those lines look like velocity peaks. Playing around with the values did not change anything. Oh, yeah... Parts of the same tracks look normal, while other parts are jacked up, as shown above.
  6. All of a sudden, my MIDI tracks lool like audio files set at maximum volume and then clipped. The piano roll reflects the blue track above. They play fine; I just don't like the looks of them. Hard to see what's going on. Any ideas?

    Compressor Algorithms

    In my old Sonar Platinum, when I wanted to add compression to an instrument, I clicked on the field just above the Compressor in ProCh (Inspector), and a tiny folder would appear, taking me straight to the algorithms. In CnB, however, clicking this folder only brings up a main directory (/AppData/Roaming/Cakewalk, etc), where I then have to navigate through a host of sub-menus on my C drive to find them. Since I can never remember the arcane name of this folder, (/Cakewalk Core/ProChannelPresets) it becomes a nuisance. Is there a way to get CnB to "remember" this folder? I've not seen it in the Folder Locations settings.
  8. Since switching over to BandLab, some of my Native Instruments interfaces are scrambled. Here's an example:
  9. I'm the admin puke on my own machine. Used Ultimate Windows Tweaker to make sure. The whole admin rights thing is most annoying. But, it is what it is. When I worked at a computer outlet, I'd troubleshoot machines folks would bring in. I was appalled at some of the idiotic things they'd do to their machines, and then blame the manufacturer for it.
  10. I have all these synth plugins but I cannot, for the life of me, find the sound that resurrects that thick, sliding, analog signature sound of ELP! Anyone have any suggestions? Been fooling around with Monark, which comes close, but I need a real synth head. I'm mostly a Lee Michaels copycat.
  11. Just an update. Wiped Cakewalk and BandLab from my drive and did a complete reinstall. Still unable to use the DXi plugins.
  12. Got tired of the mish-mash of what was what on my hard drive, so I wiped Cakewalk and BandLab from the drive and registry and did a clean install. For some reason, however, I found the Big Fish Audio folder on a separate drive. No big deal, since I've never partaken of that genre, but my OCD won't let me rest until it goes where it's supposed to go. Where does this folder actually belong?
  13. When I migrated over to CnB, all of the tracks are now without grids, just smooth bars with no visible measures and subdivisions showing. The ruler is visible at the top but not in the tracks. Nothing in Preferences. You'd think a simple right-click on a track would have a menu item, "Show Track Grid." But noooooooooooooooo...!
  14. I had a similar problem. Had to do a factory reset on the interface and disable "Receive MIDI Controller Data." Yours may not be that EXACT problem, but I suspect a Global setting on the MIDIMan may be the issue. If you can borrow someone else's interface, you could verify if Cakewalk is the culprit. Or try a soft synth, one that uses SoundFonts. Not sure on that one. Just throwing out ideas.
  15. That's the problem with computer-based technology. One day, you're happy playing Rayman: The Great Escape, then you upgrade the OS and the oldies become distant memories. EDIT: Installed Bandlab's Cakewalk. DX instruments still cause crashes. To be specific, I can add an instrument, pick a voicebank, etc. But as soon as I press the synth keyboard or press Play on the DAW, fuggedaboutit.
