  1. Well, here I am again asking for help!

    I finally gave up with the STL Tonality plugin, too many problems to list and a very very  poor technical support, just brief desultory replies of no help, so I am not going to buy it.

    Instead I decided to get THU Rock, and bought this plugin outright. But... so many problems. First it crashed with a fatal error so I removed the plugin and reinstalled it on my PC. This time Cakewalk doesn't crash, but it insists on looking for all of the plugins that are no longer there, ( Tonaity, demos etc etc)  and then tells me what I know, they are not there. Fair enough I can live with that. I cant however find my new plugin using the Plugin Manager, its nowhere to be seen. Obvs I've ran a scan and when Cakewalk loads it tells me there is a new plugin.

    Help anyone?


    To be honest all I really want to do is record my stuff before I reach the age of 108! 

  2. Thanks again everyone who helped. So, all is ok except; I have a guitar track which did rely on a plug in to get a decent sound. But the demo (TH3) got more and more difficult to use, i.e. 10 mins of saving then it went awol, etc I got the feeling they wanted to really make the demo progessively more tricky to use, all this did was annoy me and decide not to buy. Anyhow here I am with STL Tonality to try...fingers crossed. But the guitar track can be seen in the track pane, i.e. the waveform, but now...no sound...nada! Okay, schoolboy question, where has the sound gone?

    One day I hope to record a song on this!

  3. Hi

    Yes thanks, that worked like a charm, and there sits the plug in, I can see it in plug in manager. But Cakewalk still doesnt want to use it; when I go to insert  menu / insert soft synth it isnt in the drop down  list. I tried going to properties and checking "enable as plug in" but still no joy. These are schoolboy problems I know but thats the level I am at sadly!

  4. No, I downloaded it but it requires a licence key, which of course I dont have as I have a demo. I am close to giving up and buying something else, the customer support seems rather too anxious to resolve the issue with one or two very brief lines of advice rather than a comprehensive reply. Not impressed at all so far.

  5. I downloaded a demo version of this which I am keen to try and hopefully buy. I pointed it to Program Files / Cakewalk/ VST Plugins when I installed it. But running the scan doesnt seem to find it, its not on the list of plugins. As it quickly scans folders I reckon I can see the path briefly as it runs through them all, but nothing can be found. I am sure I'm doing something totally wrong and daft..ideas anyone?

  6. Thanks for this. However I just opened up Cakewalk to try these helpful hints and lo and behold the program has decided one problem is not enough and has now refused to play anything at all. The console screen has lost one of the  master sliders which has skillfully decided to reappear further along in the tracks,  and I get the helpful message; "the following tracks are assigned to a silent hardware output" ( master) I have literally no idea what I did to cause this. All I want to do is write and record songs I am not technical at all but each time I click a mouse it all goes wrong. I assume I have somehow lost the Focusrite output setting and moved the master slider to another position...no idea how I did this. Maybe I blinked. Ideas anyone? 

  7. Ive just bought AD2 for Cakewalk, and so..I drag a drum beat onto the track, fine so far. It last for 4 bars only so I need to extend it to the whole song; I assumed it was a simple task just copy and paste it, but I cannot for the life of me get the new  pasted in beat to line up and play in time with the one that starts the song. Tried everything, please help a newbie!!
