  1. I can only suggest checking the windows log files for some indication of why the program closed. I use rtpMIDI etc without any issues so I don't see that they would cause any problems. You could also try starting Cakewalk in "Run as Administrator" mode to see if perhaps the problem is user or permissions related.
  2. Sadly not. I still get random crashes with a number of VST's. BBC SO Discover VST3 fails regularly, occasional Dimenson Pro crashes ...... etc etc. It's very odd that sometimes I can open a project and get the crash immediately. I then re-open the same project and it works fine. Not sure why it happens or how to get around it. I just make sure I do regular saves to ensure I work around the problems.
  3. I mentioned in the feedback thread a while ago that the behaviour of the "Insert Instrument Track" function was behaving strangely. I was advised at the time by one of the developers that the way in which instruments tracks were added had been changed to make it consistent with the Insert Audio and Insert MIDI tracks functions. However this "New and Enhanced" behaviour is driving me nuts as it doesn't work as it did, doesn't work as it should or indeed doesn't even work consistently the same way. I've created a short video showing how odd this behaviour is. Can one of the developers please explain how this "insert above current track" is in anyway a step forward and why it doesn't work consistently or as explained.
  4. You need to set it up in Cakewalk Preferences settings as a Control Surface. Under MIDI make sure that the your Mixface devices (SLMIX???) are enabled for input and output, the go into control surfaces and click the + button. Set the mode a Mackie Control and your Midi inputs and outputs to be your SLMIXUSB devices. You should make sure your Mixface is set correctly in the DAW/CTRL section of GLOBAL EDIT settings. It should then have all the controls mapped automatically and there should be no reason to be doing "midi learn". As there is no specific option for Cakewalk in the mixface DAW/CTRL try out the various options available and you should find one that will work fine. The Ableton setting seems to use Mackie Control mode so I would start with that one.
  5. I had a very simlar thing happening with my Focusrite 18i8. Their support team were very good and connected in remotely to diagnose the issue. Sadly they couldn't and replaced the unit. However that didn't cure a thing. So not wishing to be beaten by this I went to basics. Removed the device from Windows. Then uninstalled the USB drivers from the USB cards/ports . Rebooted. Windows found the USB card again installed an appropriate driver. I connected everything up again and all worked just fine. So it was something with the USB ports and drivers in my case. These kind of glitches can be frustrating so I wish you well with finding a solution. Simple things to try:- Windows Power settings - should be "performance". Make sure your USB ports are NOT set to "let windows manage power" Make sure their are no other windows apps trying to take control of your audio devices. Make sure that your windows audio bit depth and sample rate match your DAW ASIO settings to avoid any conflict. So for example 24bit "Studio Quality" for Windows and 24bit 48Khz for your CbB DAW ASIO setting.
  6. That Pedal Show recently did a video all about the "Gilmour" sound. Using some basic pedals and a clean amp seems to be the way to go. I am guessing that any number of the free ones out there can get you pretty close. TH3, Amplitube and Guitar Rig all have clean amps included. Sadly they don't include the Gilmour "talent" switcher. This make an interesting watch but you can skip through to the last third of the video to see how Dan approaches the sound with amp, pedals and FX. Should be fairly easy to replicate with plugins.

    VS-700c driver

    I am aware of the history of the VS-700 and it's integration with Cakewalk during the years Roland were involved. However your original question is slightly confusing as you were asking how to get the VS-700 working on "OSX Catalina" and obviously Cakewalk does not run on OSX as it Windows only.

    VS-700c driver

    The Roland website is the place to go for support on your VS-700 but it mentions this with regard to the 10.5 driver. * When you use this driver version, you must update the V-STUDIO 700C (Console) to the latest System Update v1.31. You can find more information here :- https://www.roland.com/global/support/by_product/v-studio_700/updates_drivers/
  9. There is a Key+ slider on the MIDI panel of the of the inspector. You can use this to transpose your MIDI notes.
  10. you can use X-RAY with the Shift-X keys to make the plugin fade to the back and reverse it with the same keys
  11. No I meant this software. https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/uk/products/davinciresolve/ There is a paid version referred to as "Studio" or a completely free version. The free version will do just about anything you want as far as video editing goes unless you are a pro film or tv production editor. It has features that rival just about any other video editor out there, including Adobe Premiere Pro, Vegas etc. For anyone wanting to work with video it's a total no brainer. So long as you have a decent processor, a decent amout of RAM and a compatible Cuda or OpenCL graphics card it will work. Totally free .....what's not to like. You can also use your existing VST's in it's "fairlight audio" section too.
  12. In my install of CbB, and indeed all my other installs of Sonar Platinum and Sonar X3, the "Insert Audio Track" and "Insert Midi Track" do NOT insert above the currently selected track and never have. if I use CTRL-T, to insert an audio track, it appears as the last track in my list and the same applies to CTRL-Shift-T for midi tracks.
  13. I would suggest using a different workflow that would allow you greater control. I do similar YouTube videos and do all of the matching of video and audio in the Video editing software, something that is designed for exactly that purpose, and not in your DAW. Cakewalk only has limited abilities regarding exporting of video, it's really designed to allow you to bring video in for viewing whilst you write music, rather than be exporting video out and I would suggest a fully featured Video editor would give you far more options and better results. If your PC is capable I would highly recommend using Davinci Resolve from Blackmagic Design. There is a fully featured version available from their webiste for free. It does have some fairly high requirements for hardware though. Using that I bring in audio I have exported from Cakewalk and line it up as required. I can then export the combined video and audio in much higher quality video formats than Cakewalk natively supports.
  14. The frustration is what was once a press a button, and a couple of clicks now has an addition 3 or 4 steps for each new track. It's taken us experienced users a long time to get a productive workflow honed down to the simplest and most functional method. I'd like to try and understand the logic for adding this new way of working but for now I can't see any benefit.
