  1. Hi all,

    I am using melodyne to alter some vocal tracks and harmonies; all is fine but when I try and copy and paste the sections to another part of the song which needs the same harmonies, I just get the original voices not the corrected melodyne notes. I could do it all over again but that would take forever, my vocals are a real problem as it is and I need loads of takes to get near a decent finished line.( With no melodyne correction ouch, you dont want to hear that!)  Does this mean I need to add melodyne to these pasted parts again? Or is there a way of pasting them together with the melodyne alterations?

  2. These sound great. Trouble is... pricey! I dont mean not worth it, I just mean for a totally unknown song writer its a lot of cash for one song. That comes across as a bit mean to be honest, but its not the same as say drums or guitar, these are essential  on all of my tracks, sax for this song, its a one off. I'll have a ponder. The Juno Alto sax is okay ish and free ( obvs) but not really in the same league as the ones you can buy.

  3. Okay, got the right sound for the bass, thanks all. Can I be a bit cheeky and now ask what is out there for a decent sax sound? I didn't ask earlier because I only just thought it might be a good thing to accompany the bass! If I was a bit pretentious I'd say it was the creative process, but maybe I better not push my luck!

  4. Thanks John. Yes I found it in the folder, "phew" I missed the "recover" label amongst the other versions. I didnt save as I went, got so wrapped up in what I was trying out, lesson learned.


    The recovery version looks different, can I simply go back to using this or is there something I should know about the recovery version? 



  5. Hi

    After much work on a song I was using melodyne and the program crashed big time. I seem to recall pressing "yes" for it to save a copy but its nowhere to be seen. An afternoons work lost if I cant find it. Ideas anyone, its a new one for me! Very very annoying to say the least, I actually was almost happy with my vocals for once!

  6. Thanks everyone all sorted.


    Can I also be cheeky and ask; are there any recommended guitar plugins that you all use? I use THU with the emphasis very much on heavy rock. But I dont really find this suits my songs, far too metal for me. And actually a bit "obvious" if you get my drift....I wondered if there were some more subtle ones out there? Sort of 10cc, Eagles, still rock but not 10 Marhall stacks on top of each other... if you see what I am getting at? If this is the wrong part of the forum let me know though. 

  7. I downloaded the adam monroe upright bass, seems a good buy. But...back to the perennial problem of VST plugins I'm afraid, it drives me nuts and I get problems every time. So; it downloads to program files/common files/VST2. I scan using  cakewalk plugin manager, and guess what? no sign of it anywhere. I've asked this question many times and sadly I'm too think to learn how to do this. What have I missed? (sighs)


    PS I tick " notify me of replies" but never get an e mail notification, again what have I missed? (sighs again)

  8. Hi I'm back after a long lay off, and I thought I'd revisit this, as there are many Spitfire plugins I like. I'm still stuck though. I have Labs and I load it, I get "organic textures" which is fine. see shot.

    But I also downloaded Soft Piano which I want. I know its under the "Labs" group. But Cakewalk cant find it as I said before.

    Paths seen by Plugin manager suggest its all there!

    c:\program files\common files\vst3\LABS (64 Bit).vst3

    also at;

    c:\program files\cakewalk\vstplugins\LABS (64 Bit).dll


    and it originally downloaded from Spitfire to;


    C:\Users\Richard\Spitfire\Spitfire Audio - LABS this is where the presets are held.


    Odd thing is I did nothing different here. First one I downloaded was BBC Symphony Orchestra, and I didnt have to configure anything, Cakewalk seemed happy to find it. Next The "Labs" organic textures ( birdsong) downloaded and I didnt have to do anything. But try as I might I cant get Cakewalk to load the other "Labs" plugins. 


    Ideas anyone?

  9. Hi all,

    I have a short song I've recorded, I need to lose a few bars of music at the end, to shorten it still further. How do I do this? I looked it up but got confused.( for a change). Oddly enough I deleted the tracks with music on them but somehow they persisted when I exported to MP3.
