    V-Vocal launch crashes CbB

    scook, I'm not sure it matters any more either because it doesn't appear to be a fixable "problem", if it ever really was a problem. It is interesting as a discussion topic I think. Two things still puzzle me, hearing what you have already explained about V-Vocal. 1, At some point in the past, V-Vocal DID in fact work in CbB with Windows 7, the panel located itself lower right and could not be undocked and moved (inconvenient, but still useable). 2. I find it very intriguing that V-Vocal will only still work in the 32 bit version of Sonar X2 but will not work in the 64 bit version of Sonar X2, Sonar Platinum or CbB. Also at some point in the past, maybe around the same time V-Vocal stopped working in CbB, I completely updated my Windows 7 pro x64 OS, since I knew I would not get support for it any longer. It could well be that I should have just left my Win7 OS alone and not updated. In any event, I appreciate your insights, not everyone in this community has the knowledge and expertise, but even at my age I am interested enough to try to keep learning. Wade C.

    I heard from Cakewalk about this situation, here is his reply. Notice there is NO reference to a 64-bit version of this plugin. I did his suggestion, but nothing is changed. I think I'll just have to be content using my 32 bit versions of Sonar when I need V-Vocal. Thanks to all for contributing. Wade C. "Hey Sdwest, Thanks for reaching out! Sorry for the trouble. V-vocal is an old 32-bit plug-in and is not expected to work well with Cakewalk by BandLab, which is a native 64-bit program. Although Cakewalk uses BitBridge to allow use of 32-bit plug-ins, it's reliability is not guaranteed. What you can try is; check your plug-in manager under DirectX Audio Effects (DX). Click the Show Disabled option at the bottom and see if you have Cronus.dll under the disabled list. If it is, please enable it. Close Cakewalk and relaunch to see if it still crashes. Hope to hear back from you soon! Best regards, Freed"

    scook, I have submitted my dump file to Bandlab, so we'll see what happens. It's my first time doing this, so I'm hoping I did it correctly, and that they understand that I am not asking them to source or support V-Vocal, but perhaps look into the Cakewalk end to see if something is getting in the way of running V-Vocal.

    My crashes occur, near as I can determine, when using x64 versions of SPLAT and CbB with V-Vocal. If I am working on a 32 bit file, with SPLAT X1 or X2, V-Vocal seems to work fine for me. This is why I made that statement.

    Thanks to all who responded. I was not aware that V Vocal was also a 64 bit plug-in as well as 32 bit, I'll look into that further. For right now, I'm using Windows 7, x64 and if I had my druthers, I'd continue to use it from now until someone comes out with an OS that works better for me. I still use V-Vocal at times for some things that Melodyne does not do, and I have Melodyne 4 Studio. At times I use it to fade a single syllable where I have had to edit off a bit of the ending or where it just sounds better that way. A bigger attraction for me is the ability to enhance or add a little vibrato in places in a vocal, especially after a Melodyne treatment. I don't use it often, but it does stuff that Melodyne doesn't do, it's non-destructive, and I think it helps me. A year or so ago, I put in a feature request to Celemony for these features to be added to Melodyne, they were definitely interested, but apparently did not find it practical to do that as yet, as I have heard nothing in a while. I appreciate the discussion about this, apparently a few people feel as I do about it, so I will try to capture a crash dump for the CbB folks to see if they can maybe fix that. Best wishes to all, stay healthy and stay safe. Wade C.
  6. I also posted this question in Q&A section, but it may be related to the new version of CbB. Any ideas? Hi all, I still find good old V-Vocal useful for some specific things concerning vocals, IMO it does certain things that Melodyne cannot do. Seems V-Vocal is a 32 bit plug-in, but did run on CbB. The V-Vocal panel would appear at the bottom, but you could not "float" it to another screen, so that was another issue that I learned to live with. Now, V-Vocal does not run at all on CbB latest version. I have 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Sonar X1, X2 and X3 installed, and V-Vocal works as it should on both X1 and X2 32-bit programs. My system is fully updated Windows 7 Pro x64. Can anyone help with this? TIA, Wade NW Illinois

  8. Mettelus, thank you. LatencyMon is still in the green on all 4 bars after 2 minutes. This program will help me resolve my dropout problem, I think. In other news, I tried my Samsung 970 Pro 512GB NVMe card in a PCIe X4 slot with an adapter card, and using Samsung's migration software, It was able to recognize and clone my current 850 Pro SSD to the NVMe. However, my motherboard does not give me a choice of a PCIe card boot, so I get a boot failure every time. So, back to the drawing board, but it was fun getting as far as this, in any event.
  9. mettelus, I did all that with the NVIDIA drivers, but there is still a pesky little "nvlddmkm.sys" that is very active called "NVIDIA Windows kernel mode driver", which I assume is the driver. Are there accepted benchmarks/numbers with LatencyMon below which a person can feel confident about the system for DAW use?
  10. If you use V-Vocal for anything (I find it useful for restoring or adding a bit of vibrato to a vocal) you might consider installing a slightly older version of Sonar. I think the last version that contained V-Vocal was Sonar X2. Then when you re-install CbB, V-Vocal will be right there and useable in CbB under "Region FX". Just something to consider. Wade C
  11. Running LatencyMon I discovered a lot of USB 3.0 activity, then realized that I had transferred the licenses from several of my favorite plugins to a USB flash drive. I eliminated this problem by transferring the licenses back to the cloud and removing the flash drive from the USB port. It won't be as convenient transferring licenses between computers, but it's not that bad either. Wade C.
  12. mettelus, I did not know about LatencyMon until I read your post. I have downloaded it and have been getting familiar with it and it should be a big help to me. Most of the background processes are abbreviations that are unfamiliar to me, but a Google search helps with that. One big user and abuser of my system resources was the NVIDIA video card extraneous processes, and I've already trashed most of that. Good stuff, thank you.
  13. Starship Krupa, I'll try that, I do keep a lot of unused vocal tracks and de-selected plugins in the final cwp file. I usually have 4 or 5 cwp project files for every project, depending on the state of the final product. I'll try deleting all muted and unused tracks from the final mixdown cwp then renaming it, so that the one I'm working with only contains "live" tracks and plugins. Good advice, and thank you. Wade C.
  14. Bob Bone, that's music to my ears. I've used Samsung's cloning software before when replacing a SATA drive with another SATA drive, but I'll be trying what you suggest, thanks! Wade
  15. slartabartfast, that's good information, and SSD with direct PCIe connection was news to me. I did a little checking on ebay and, sure enough, I find several brands that I could try for a fairly reasonable amount. I have already jumped into the shark-infested waters for a Samsung 970 Pro 512GB and an adapter card, so I'll give that a go first. I'm not too sure yet how I'm going to get this motherboard to recognize an operating system on PCIe, let alone creating a bootable SSD. It's a Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD4, BIOS version F6. The documentation at Gigabyte mentions that version F4 was "Improve OCZ PCIe SSD compatibility", so I'm hopeful. PCIe is not listed as a bootup choice in the BIOS. If it won't work, I'll have some stuff for sale! Thanks for your time, you've helped me a lot! Regards, Wade
