  1. So I've been trying desperately to find the best way of converting a soft synth to multiple audio tracks. I don't mind freezing but I wanted the audio tracks to be unfrozen. I've found a way to do this operation very easily and thought I'd share it for anyone who wishes to do the same. Assuming that you have a softsynth setup already going to multiple tracks: 1: Highlight all tracks and freeze them 2: Highlight all frozen tracks you want, and go to: tracks/Duplicate tracks... (make sure events and properties are ticked) Click ok! You will then have: All your tracks created and named with the audio data in them to do with what you will. Obviously you can do whatever you like with the frozen tracks and softsynth. I've been banging my head against a brick wall about this and finally! I hope this is helpful for anyone looking to easily create multiple audio tracks from a softsynth.

  3. Putting a send on the synth track works! Crazy stuff man! On a drum track with 8 outputs, I have to create a send for each one. What I really wanted to do was just create the instrument track with all outputs automatically assigned, arm the tracks, hit record and job done. But it looks like I either have to freeze all tracks and copy the frozen tracks to new tracks for editing, or create aux sends for them and record them that way. It seems a bit mental but at least the problem has a few workarounds. Thanks to everyone for contributing to this!
  4. Thanks for the input people. My soundcard is the M-Audio 2496. I have the latest driver and can use it in ASIO or WDM. It's exactly the same in both. I checked the record delay settings but you can't do a negative adjustment. I was also wrong about the live instrument recording! It has the same problem. It doesn't seem to happen when it's an empty project. So I think Jim Roseberry is right in saying that "Some audio interfaces don't report their record latency accurately". It's just weird that it over compensates and puts the click slightly to the left of the beat. If it was the other way, then I could just type in the record delay adjustment!
  5. Hello anyone! I've recently been trying to record from a softsynth to an audio track but the recording has been adjusted too much for latency. Each beat of the recording is very slightly before the actual beat! I assume cakewalk is over compensating for latency. The latency adjustment for recording live instruments is perfect, so I know it's not a problem with my machine. I have found a couple of posts from people with the same problem but nobody seems to have an answer. I'm assuming that cakewalk knows how much to adjust recorded audio from the inputs on my soundcard and makes the same adjustment when recording a softsynth, even though the softsynth doesn't do the round trip back into the sound card. Meaning that the recorded softsynth ends up being slightly before the beat. I've heard of the same issue in pro tools but you can turn of delay compensation individually for each track, which solves the problem. I would love it if somebody had an answer for this, but It looks like nobody does! Maybe somebody might have a good way of turning multiple softsynth outputs into separate audio tracks that I don't know about. I thought of freezing tracks and just pasting the frozen tracks to new audio tracks, which seems like a workaround I shouldn't have to do. But it does line up the tracks in the right place at least! Has anyone got any ideas?
