I don't have Omnisphere.
I've been burned a few times when I didn't re-wind a project prior to a stereo export, then wondered why only part of the song would play. Now it's become a habit to
re-wind before I do exports, freezes and the like.
Glad to hear it's working!

OK, I understand the issue now. Have you checked the event viewer in the bass MIDI track for odd events, disabled any effects on the track?
You do rewind the project to the beginning prior to the freeze?
There are a bunch of controls in Trilian. Have you tinkered with something new in Trilian that you never used before?
I've been using Trilian for years and I've never seen this late thing happen.

I've always used at least 2 measures at the beginning of a song, usually 3. That said I don't freeze tracks very often.
BTW, have you patched Trilian with the latest updates? I did mine a few weeks ago.

Windows might have changed the drive letter where the samples are stored. Missing files or projects messages happen to me once in a while if I've tinkered with the drive letters on external drives.

I'll get this after I tinker with the external USB drives I use for recordings or general data use. Sometimes I don't plug the USB drives back into port Bandlab expects to see and Windows renames the drive letter. Browsing for a project usually straightens everything out.

Opened a project this morning where the Trilian Bass synth track was in freeze mode. Did an unfreeze and 12 measures of MIDI data at the beginning of the track is missing. The MIDI track is still at it's proper length and Trilian plays normally beginning at measure 13. I can see data all the way to the end, looks normal from measure 13.
Pretty sure I bounced all the bass track data to clips long ago.
When I "undo" the unfreeze thing the track reverts to audio data and it plays just as it should from the beginning.
Anyone else experience this or know how to fix it?

Searched and found this:
It appears you haven't done the Windows 10 updates?

I keep backups of old versions on my PC. I got the impression there was a formal drop down menu function built in. Something like "clean the audio disk".
Thanx for the reply.
Someone posted a comment a while back about a version Roll Back. I've searched the current reference guide, poked around the program and the assistant.
I don't see it. Anyone know where it is?

Yup, this has been a PITA for years. A "Stop" marker would be helpful.

Thanks for the follow up. Lots of adapters involved. I'll check the RME forum to see if there's a significant performance increase over USB.

Configure your browser so downloads are delivered you your desktop. You can adjust settings in Chrome to do this. Pretty sure Edge will too.
I'm surprised you got playback to work. The common wisdom over on GearSlutz is PC Thunderbolt to Firewire will never work. I was looking into this subject because I bought a new HP Laptop with Thunderbolt that was supported by UAD. I had considered jumping ship from my RME UCX to UAD Apollo but never pulled the trigger. So, I looked around for an adapter, cable or some way to experiment with Thunderbolt to RME Firewire. All I could find was a Startech TB to FW box that was $300.00. Moreover all the GearSlutz talk on the subject said Nada, Ziltch, No Way, won't work.
But hey, if you get working properly let us know!!
I did complain to Bandlab months ago the first time I ran into the Assistant update issue. I asked why they didn't simply post a link to an update file like other vendors do. They were concerned that an update file could get posted at some unsavory website where it might be tampered with. I suppose that could happen, but all the years I've been downloading "updates" I've never seen a file manipulated this way. Maybe other people get their updates where ever they can, but I get mine from the vendor I'm working with. Bandlab, Toontracks, RME, Spectrasonic, etc.
BTW, I had to update the latest Assistant using my method. It's a PITA but certainly not a deal breaker for software like Bandlab.

Good call Tez. I always run my PCs with Admin level rights and assume all DAW users do the same.

I've had this problem too. Try uninstalling Bandlab Assistant, reboot, then find the website link to down load the latest install file.
Let us know if this works.

As I recall when Session Drummer first appeared this question was asked. The answer was to copy the .DLL and rename it with a 2 on the end. Like sessiondrummer2.dll
Pretty sure you have to rescan your plugins. I tried this a long time a go and it worked.
YMMV with Drum Pro.
Try adding it to the Synth Rack first, then open it. I too have had the same problem with the Simple Instrument Track freeze.

This happens to me if one note is too long and it bumps into another. I've had to manually adjust ( or shorten) the offending note so it doesn't clip off the next note. As far as I know It has been this way since Sonar 8.5.3. I don't use external sound modules anymore, just VST or DXI instruments.
BTW, this is very noticeable in the bass synth Trilian.

RME UCX. Rock solid performance. A few less preamps and way more money than I think you have been paying but it works - all the time. Use that stimulus money and buy one. :>)

Learn to use MIDI.
If I'm building a backing track of a popular song ( ie "I Thank You" - Z.Z. Top) I can usually find a free MIDI file that has all the basics. Some are way better than others so you have to learn how to work with MIDI to sort them out. In the past I have purchased MIDI tracks built by companies that really know their stuff. This might be the best option if you're new to all this.
Once you figure out MIDI there's a ton of stuff you can do. An example is over on the Gilmorish site (David Gilmore - Pink Floyd) there are a bunch of free Pink Floyd MIDI file backing tracks that are very good. Your favorite artists may have something similar. Check around, you'll find some decent stuff to work with.

Hey, no problem - glad to hear you have it working. :>)
When I was looking at UA TB interfaces UA posted a list of approved laptops that would support their hardware. Is your laptop on the list?
FWIW, my HP Zbook G3 is on the list, but I never pulled the trigger on buying a TB box.

SampleTank 4 CS (custom shop) is free from IK right now. Just installed it and tried their Piano VST. Seems to work OK, sounds good.
Just an FYI.....
Just looked down the list and found this is old news. Nevermind!
