  1. Hi,

    I am recording a song with harmonies and all started well, but then the vocals seemed to become distorted. The meter is ok and not in the red. I use a Mike through a scarlett input. I tried a test track using a completely new project and all was well. So it must relate to something I've done on my song. Any clues? ( I am a novice)

  2. Hi

    I've imported an old track I did a few years ago, but I seem not to have used a metronome. I now want to add addictive drums to it, but obviously I need some kind of beat to follow; now it is possible I didnt ever use a metronome to follow and just did it live as it were, certainly it doesnt play when I click the"metronome while playback" button so this may be futile.

    Can I add a click track ( assuming it is in time) or can I possibly get the whole track to play in time if I just recorded everything in real time without a click track ( if thats what I did  that was a fluke as it still sounds pretty much in time) ( wild guess and long shot I know)

  3. Hi all

    I want to fade a piano solo out at the end of the track; I've diligently tried both methods, i.e. smart tool and drag to the fade point, or click on process effects and used fade out both linear and exponential; all to no avail it makes no difference to the volume at all. Clearly doing something wrong here??

  4. Now it is starting to sink in. Like an idiot I didn't realise you could slide the menu open and reveal all of the other settings. (Thats my level of competence sadly)

    so I changed it from master to focus rite and all worked fine. Is there a quick way to change all tracks to focus rite rather than one by one?

  5. Hello again,

    I've have transferred a new project from old laptop to my new version of Cakewalk on my new PC thanks. But somethings wrong, I have a "silent bus" message and no sound. There seems to be no way of assigning the output to my scarlett focusrite as the drop down has gone...sounds to me like something simple??



  6. Hi all

    When I add a guitar track to a song, I hear the guitar without effects even though I chose a sound using THU say californian blues etc using the THU plugin. I play it back and the guitar sound I want is there, which is nice  but how do I get it to alter the guitar sound as I play along and record say a lead solo. The twangy unaltered sound is somewhat uninspiring as I overdub the lead or the chords of a song.
