  1. I'd like to know why it suddenly doesn't work and I have to jump through hoops to get to where I already was. The plugins were already working. There wasn't anything that needed to be recovered or restored. I held down the 'shift' key when the message said "Cakewalk will now personalize" and it was going to allow me to itemize the plugins I'd allow. I clicked "allow all" because everything had been working and the DAW opened but it looked all wrong and I was hearing the reverb without the source so I closed it "don't save".
  2. One update I declined was for "the latest version of Win 10". I don't think that should be necessary to make it run. I think some people are probably using 7, etc.
  3. The error message says "could not open file", followed by wrong statements (see attached image). There's nothing wrong with my files and holding down 'shift' does nothing. It seems to occur while the project is loading automation, if that's a clue. Then another message pops up referencing personalization, which doesn't seem to do anything. see attached image. The desktop that the DAW is on was offline due to a down wire for a few days but I just installed the latest version of CbB and the latest Windows updates and rebooted. No dice.

  4. I got phone support. Didn't know it was available on weekends. Basically there are things no one understands and the solution was to reinstall all the waves plugins. I was reluctant to use the "repair" function of Waves Central because it reinstalls everything. But it looks like it will only take a few hours, not a week. And I'll call Daniel back when it's finally done. Like
  5. So this led to another problem. Left to my own devices with no help from Waves, I quickly went from the frying pan into the fire. Now, NONE of my Waves plugins work! CbB can't load the plugins from their location. I had relocated the enormous library in another location where Waves looks. That seemed to create the problem but when I removed the library, the problem remained. I get this same error message for every waves plugin:
  6. I'm not sure why this is but CbB is not recognizing Waves Grand Rhapsody. I think it's Waves' most challenging install, LOL. The rest of their stuff works, no problem. Yes, I've contacted Waves but they haven't responded yet and they're closed for the weekend. The sample libraries are installed where Waves wants them: C : > Users > Public > Waves Audio > Waves Sample Libraries > Grand Rhapsody SD Waves Central says the plugin is activated and installed, but it doesn't show up in CbB when I go to insert a soft synth.

  7. Thanks. I probably used the erase tool. I do more mixing and recording than editing. I usually get tracks that are already curated and comped or I record them myself, so I wind up either auto muting or erasing, crossfading. Maybe some of the functions of the smart tool changed over the years?
  8. 'Sorry if you fail to grasp the intricacies and nuance of the English language, deah boy!' Sorry if I was snippy. It's just that it's frustrating when you've been using something for years and people automatically assume you're clueless. From the OP: The erase tool wasn't working. I know how to use it -- it wasn't working. Now it is, and nobody seems to know why.
  9. I've only been using it since 2006 and I just erased something yesterday using the erase tool in track view. Track view is the main editing view, isn't it?
  10. I'm pretty sure I used to be able to use the smart tool as an erase tool. I still don't know why the erase tool didn't work on one day and worked the next.
  11. Did the functioning of the smart tool change when it went from being a star to being an arrow?
  12. It's called working when I should be sleeping. Back to the original topic. Unless I'm mistaken, I used to be able to crop the end of a clip with the smart tool by clicking and dragging. And when I started this topic, the erase tool wasn't working. Without doing anything differently, it's working today. Gremlins? Maybe a poltergeist?
  13. John was being condescending. I was responding in kind.
  14. I'm not sure you have basic reading comprehension skills. Reread my post. I've been playing guitar for decades and I don't need any fancy editing skills for that. I'm just trying to either get the auto mute function to work as it should or erase the end of one track.
