  1. In Cake 8.5 it was possible to open prv in Track inspector but that feature seems gone. Has the workflow in Cake Band changed quite a bit and how? I'm trying to figure out the zooms and the microscope and they seem re-designed. Any ideas Thanks
  2. OK I looked a track manager but I don't see any way to insert a new synth between 3 and 4 which is where I would like it to sit because it will trade off with Cobalt, The one I want to put is the Kawai K3 vst. But I don't see an option to pick the placement for it. Does it always have to be inserted to the bottom?
  3. OK I screwed up. I thought I didn't save that but I now need to replace my mistake with the orignial synth that sat there. Maybe I'll try track manager to see if I can delete that track and put a different synth there.
  4. OK I want to add to this, when I copied the drum part I thought it would just copy the midi rhythm notes but instead it brought the actual drum kits along with it into the vst that was designated for a synth . I probably should redo the track from the media browser instead of copying and pasting from the drum part. So I'll try that.
  5. I'm actually beginning my song writing. I want to take the drum patterns to the other instruments but when I copied the drum pattern, it brought the drum list along with it. I want to change that to a Piano Roll but I can't seem to figure out how to do that. Then I will move the synth part to the notes on the scale I want to use but I want them to sit on the drum rhythm. and the other part on that pattern that are left over , I will delete. Any ideas?
  6. Do most of the softsynths out there accept program changes? or do I need to record my midi outputs into audo tracks? I have done many first's this week and I got program changes with arpeggiation changes to record as audio. But it would be nice if I at certain spots across my tracks could change the instruments my vst has.
  7. Is it possible to make program changes on most VST's or do you have to convert your patch to an audio file? When I look at the insert program change on the Insert menu, it doesn't seem to list my VST's as an option? Do I have to create a new midi track everytime I want to change a sound with a new vst? Thanks so much
  8. Also you can find your serial number at Cakewalk.com which keeps a record for years of your downloads. I checked it for my account and it listed it. So you can get your serial numbers from there. I remembered I had to struggle with it but if you have those 2 things I would change my foldername (just so you don't lose the efforts of programming you have put in for that plugIn. and reinstall it.
  9. It could be that you are trying to use a 32 bit Rapture instead of the 64 bit. I've had that problem before. Also in my opinion Rapture was never fully finished. http://forum.cakewalk.com/Universal-120-Vol-2-for-RaptureRapture-Pro-only-999-m3714020.aspx and that will solve that problem for you. Also Rapture uses the ProgramData directory which is a hidden folder and you have to turn it on in file options.
  10. OK I will try that this week. and post how it goes.
  11. Did cakewalk X3 put the vst's in a different folder than the Bandlab Cakewalk editions? I thought I had V Vocal but I can't seem to find it in the vst or dxi section. I still have X3 installed.

    Using Arpegiators

    I want to use three different arpeggiaton styles on an instrument track. Do I have to convert them into audio loops to do that? It seems as if the arpeggiators play live during the record session. So I'm not sure what's being recorded because the arpeggiators don't seem as if they are midi notes? Any ideas? Thanks
  13. OK I permanently figured this out. On my screen display I have to close all the windows in the status bar at the bottom of the screen to be able to see the midi and audio tabs. If any tabs underneath are open it covers the midi audio options.
  14. Thanks I kind of have that as an idea too, but since Omni is so large. I didn't want to thrash about and lose my version that works. But now it's time to correct that. I'll look through the folders it might be in. I seem to be getting this a lot. Cobalt VST plugIn wouldn't read the sequence so I went in to the PI and just checked off a few buttons and then back on and now it seems to work. So I'm figuring things out. Thanks
  15. Cobalt VST is another good synth for beginners and Kawai K3 vst is another beginner plug in. https://www.lesliesanford.com/vst/plugins/ Kawai K3 http://www.vst4free.com/free_vst.php?plugin=K3-V_Extended&id=2928 PlugIn botique for example. Has a JD800 clone, a Virus clone and a Novation station clone. https://www.pluginboutique.com/categories/4-Synth?free=true
