  1. Chuck. I'll look into the track focus thing. I was very careful to use Paste Special and select the proper track, measure etc. Thanks for the reply. DaveT
  2. As Scook said the vertical line (in a MIDI track in my project) is a result of Enhanced Editing switched on. I was able to replicate that behavior. Copy/Paste might be affected by Enhanced Editing. I'll be aware of this next time the issue pops up.
  3. Just went through some serious frustration over the Cut/Paste thing as well. Project work is going along just fine then off in the weeds it goes. Copy MIDI from track 13, paste it to the end of 13, it lands on audio track 12, or on MIDI track 14. WTF! Events like this have happened to me a lot. As Astral says restarting CW clears this up but I'd like to know what I did to create this. Scook say enhanced edit might do this. How can I tell if it's switched on? TIA,
  4. Tried upgrading to the free Win 10 on an older HP laptop. Worked fine for a few months, then a major Win 10 update came along and hosed the laptop to a point where it wouldn't work. So, beware upgrading older hardware to Win 10. I bought a new HP Zbook to replace the old laptop. Runs Sonar & Bandlab on Win 10 perfectly. I don't see the bloat you mention probably because the new laptop has a lot more power, memory, etc.
  5. I've been running Sonar/Bandlab for years in a band that uses sound effects. Works perfect. I've got two old HP laptops loaded with the same OS and Sonar/Bandlab versions. Laptops run Echo PCMCIA card audio interfaces, works every time. If we use our PA I plug the Echo into a pair of mic/line inputs. If we're using a PA provided by the event I plug the echo card into a stereo DI. The sound guys take it from there. The only downside is that the screens on the laptops get washed out in direct sunlight. Not bad if the stage is covered, but really a bitch to see otherwise. I never use the on board audio on the PC's.
  6. OK. I'll check for patches or updates. Thanks for the heads up.
  7. Couple days ago I too heard a high pitch tone at the end of an old project. I've got waves plugs on some of my old projects so it might have originated from there. My waves 32 bit plugs are so old even Cakewalk won't play them.
  8. E or e doesn't work for me. I'm beginning to think the time Selection Box (see photo) is hosed up. I can drag over a selection of measures in a Midi track, copy and paste works as expected. Not as accurate as the time selection. I've always used the Selection Box because it's accurate. Can someone else try it my way?
  9. The issue is in the Piano Roll. Here's what I'm doing; Open the drum (or any) Midi track in piano roll. Use the Selection Box and type in say 7 in the top 23 in the bottom. I can see the grey bar selecting measures 7 -23. I use Edit Copy or ctrl C. I use G to go to measure 71. Select Copy Special, the dialog does appear with the proper measure (71), but the track number isn't in the dialog box. I click OK, nothing appears in the drum Midi track in question. What I do get is a bunch of tracks added to the bottom of the project. I'm attaching photos. This has been my standard work process for ever and now it doesn't work. I can make a selection from the Midi track in track view and paste it, but the notes don't align properly with the measures. I have to manually slide them in Piano roll view. If I have some function switched on that I'm mot aware of please enlighten me. Thanks
  10. Had a similar problem just this morning with a Trilian Bass instrument track. Copy and paste failed to work, even the "Copy Special" and "Paste Special" dialog boxes wouldn't appear after I selected them from the menu. I finally got paste to work from the menu list that appears in the little box at the end of the Midi track. Tried closing the project figuring that might re-set the functions. Didn't help. Finally had to restart Bandlab to get going again. I'm running the latest version and this hadn't been a issue in the past. Anyone else seeing this?
  11. That is the first place I looked and the Show all Tracks and Buses was greyed out.
  12. I wonder if an optional setting to clear the picture cache on closing would be a good idea. This would probably slow down opening projects but solve the issue once and for all? Martins, I'll make a note of the procedure you outlined. Thanks...
  13. Opened a current project yesterday and found nothing in the track view. Console view showed the proper number of tracks, project played back as expected. In panic mode I forgot about clearing the picture cache, but loading a new empty track in track view restored the old tracks. Pretty sure this has been as issue for other users but my first time. So, can this get fixed once and for all!!! 🔊 Thanks...
