  1. Ah, that explains the lack of tutorials. I'm trying to use William Kage's 16-bit* soundfonts: https://www.williamkage.com/snes_soundfonts/ *Not sure if true 16-bit soundfonts even exist but they sound 16-bit. I'm interested in composing for old video game consoles. I've heard of C700 but importing an SPC file sounded like overkill, and eventually I want to use my own samples.
  2. This is what I typed into Google: I'm looking for step-by-step instructions on how to set this up but perhaps no one has written up a tutorial for that yet.
  3. Does Cakewalk have a way to attach a soundfont to a MIDI track? I have a SF2 file I would like to compose with.
  4. Ok, so the only deleterious effect is on a temporary file that was going to disappear anyway.
  5. Ok so I'm trying to understand this track freezing feature from this documentation: https://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=Mixing.23.html The word "discards" has me a little concerned (right after "Unfreeze Track"). Are there any deleterious effects to freezing (bouncing) and then unfreezing (discarding), or are these operations strictly inverses of each other, like hiding and redisplaying in the "quick" versions of these commands?
  6. After seeing ReWire in the Cakewalk documentation I was disappointed to hear this. Does anyone know why Reason Studios discontinued ReWire? Has it been replaced with something else that does the same thing?
  7. In the days of virtual memory and pagefiles, is there ever a reason to use the archive button anymore? Does anyone observe any performance difference on modern operating systems?
  8. Hi there, I think that specifically in the Q&A section, it can be a little confusing that the "Meh" reaction emoji (a thumbs down) is distinct from a downvote and does not affect the score of a post. Perhaps a face emoji for "Meh" would be better.
  9. Ok, so I just noticed this section of the forum. At first glance, it looks like there is some overlap in purpose with here: https://help.cakewalk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new Is one place preferred over another? How should I decide where to put requests?
  10. I'm just trying to minimize the number of clicks it takes to do things.
  11. Oh, that's too bad. Are there any other DAWs that support freehand lasso, that I can use to complement Cakewalk?
  12. How do I freehand lasso select a group of notes in PRV? When I try with the select tool it insists on using a rectangular shape.
  13. Not sure what you mean by "midi command flag." I found this copy of the standard (page 10) appears to mandate that the high bit of a program change message be unset. https://www.cs.cmu.edu/~music/cmsip/readings/Standard-MIDI-file-format-updated.pdf I'm not sure how much equipment will go haywire if you set that bit; I wonder if it could someday be used to allocate another 128 MIDI instruments like 7-bit ASCII was extended.
  14. Is the high bit of the program number simply unused, reserved for future use?
  15. Sometimes I download MIDI files that are not in the right key, or I want to fine tune them by some number of cents. Does Cakewalk have a way to change the master MIDI tuning? Is there a way to pitch all MIDI channels up or down by the same amount (except for unpitched instruments like drums, those should stay the same). If not, maybe a CAL script could do this?
