    If your primary focus is playing live with a mono FOH system ( no panning/stereo ) or you simply don't have two PA channels available, does this do anything for you?

    1. How do you view the actual notes in the midi track --- all I see are lines etc? 2. What opens track inspector? thanks

    Running as admin did work better.

    I'll go back through all replies now. But I think this guitar instrument I downloaded may not be ready for prime time. Cakewalk is scanning for VSTs and is looking in the correct folder but all that's there is a DLL and a readme file, no "sem" files. Clicking through seems to load the vst but Cakewalk may be locking up at that point. https://www.dskmusic.com/dsk-electrik-guitarz/

    Yes, it's going to take me an hour just to go through this morning's posts and digest them. I really appreciate the help. I retired as a Sql Server Database Admin last year so you'd think technical work would come naturally. Well, it does, but the DAW world sure seems to have it's own little place in heaven. :-) Hopefully this link shows my Cakewalk screen better. I believe the version provided by BandLab is the platinum version My Cakewalk Screen Release Notes (2019.01) Hotfix 1-23-2019 Address an issue in which Mix Recall was not applying presets This hotfix increments CbB to version 25.01.0.27

    I inserted an electric guitar track/vst from here: https://www.dskmusic.com/dsk-electrik-guitarz/ Still working on getting the original midi guitar track to "use" the vst sound.

    Thanks again. I also looked at a vocal removal filter as a means to get backing tracks for a "jam band" that has trouble getting certain instruments ( drummer ) to show up consistently. The best I could do with that was reduced vocal ( not eliminated ) without having too much negative effect on the other instruments. This was working with an mp3, not a midi file, so just one combined track. For our purposes, reduced vocal might actually be a good idea so the vocal keeps us on track with the song. Ours is just a jam group with no real plans to play out for an audience ( at this time )

    Thanks all. First question: would you suggest sticking with the "basic" Lens rather than advanced etc at this point?

  9. I'm creating backing tracks for my band, starting with downloaded midi files. The first one I've loaded into Cakewalk came from the link below. Where in the forums or documentation should I start on how to replace things like the guitar tracks with more realistic sounds? I have very little DAW experience. Def Leopard: Photograph Midi
