I am here in the hope I will get this sorted asap. Please help.
While working on a Cakewalk project (referred to as project A below), VST instrument (in my case TTS-1) track's keyboard icon or the one on the Synth Rack has stopped showing the instrument UI. The instrument is sounding ok from what I have already recorded on the track, but the instrument itself is not showing so I am not able to work with the instrument interface. When I click on the keyboard icon, simply nothing happens.
I have tried:
Creating another project in the same Cakewalk instance. The same issue shows with the new project.
Closing the current instance and creating a new instance.
When I create a new project in this instance, then the problem is resolved.
When I open project A first, then the problem persists, even if I create a new project.
Create a copy of the project and open it in a new instance. Does not work.
Creating a new project and copying my tracks from A to this new project. Does not work.
So, basically, project A has some setting that makes the cakewalk instance not show the instrument UIs.
It is perhaps important to note that prior to experiencing this issue (I can't recall the exact event that triggered this), I was trying to load default Cakewalk instruments into the instruments window on the right panel. I ultimately succeeded in showing them there, but editing VST Settings from Preferences, by Resetting and probably tweaking some other settings (if any) there (that I do not fully recall). I have attached a pic for the Dialog Box state here.
Has someone experienced a similar issue and did you find a solution? I have already wasted several hours on solving this but can not find a way out.
Happy to provide more info.
Thanks in advance.
