  1. After exchanging a number of emails and Dump files from the BBS SO Discovery crashes within CbB Spitfire Audio provided me with a few different new builds of the VST3 DLL none of which cured the issues I have been experiencing. They have now stated they have been made aware that other software vendors have also reported issues with VST3 plugins running within CbB and thus they are convinced its an issue with Cakewalk itself. They have suggested I just use the VST2 version of their plugin until the Cakewalk Developers can rectify the issues. Seems I could be waiting a long time as Cakewalk seem convinced that the issue lies with the plugin.
  2. I've had quite a number of exchanges with the Spitfire Technical support and they are working hard to iron out the issues. They said they are aware, as they have had a number of reports, that there are quite a few experiencing problems with the VST3. Hopefully they will manage to get them sorted fairly soon.
  3. @msmcleod I don't use OneDrive or Google Drive on this PC so there shouldnt be any issues there. I haven#t made any specific file exclusions on my AV checker, I normally leave this at it's default settings which I think would scan any executable (exe or dll), but will make some changes to see if that has any impact. Thanks for the suggestion it is much appreciated.
  4. @msmcleod I downloaded the 2020.08 Hotfix Sneak Preview that you suggested may include a fix to cure this. Sadly it didn't. Spitfire Audio are still investigating the issue. It does seem to me that it may be more Cakewalk related now. Originally the plugin loaded without issue when I first got it. Since update to 2020.08 Build 100 and the previous version it has constantly crashed, If I start a new project from a template that I created when I first got the plugin, this template includes many instances of the BBC SO VST3, it all loads and works fine. It seems to be a very random and inconsistent error. When I do as shown in the video that happens 100% of the time. So I am leaning towards the fact that it may be a Cakewalk problem. I have sent CrashDumps to Cakewalk support and they just said "it's a plugin problem" and I should seek help from Spitfire. Which kind of leaves me stuck in the middle. I can only provide the files to support and wait to see what they come up with.

  6. I am having similar issues with the BBC SO Discover VST3, Cakewalk suggested the problem is related to the plugin. I contact Spitfire Audio, provided them with CrashDump and log files and they sent me an updated dll plugin. However the issue still persists but is inconsistent as can bee seen in this screen capture.

    Saving Meter Settings

    I have managed to find that this is saved as part of the workspace rather than the project. So I may have overlooked the obvious answer. Ooops
  8. As far as I am aware you can send midi data from a single track to multiple midi channels of the same Midi driven plugin. ie., one midi track can drive many channels of the TTS Plugin. I don't think however that it possible to change the output to a different MIDI driven plugin. If it is however the same plugin that accepts midi data on many channels, such as Onmisphere or Kontakt, it shouldn't be a problem to edit the corresponding midi data to be sent to channel 2 of that same synth. Hope that makes sense.

    Saving Meter Settings

    When I make modifications to the meter display settings for the console view it seems these settings aren't retained the next time I open the project. Is there any way to set the default view of the Console Channel and Bus Meters so that I don't have to change them every time I edit a project ? Any help on this would be appreciated as I can't seem to find an option in Preferences that sets the defaults.
  10. Sounds like a latency issue causing the break up. In most cases this isn't apparent when just playing audio. It's when recording that the issues show up. Are you using low latency ASIO driver mode in cakewalk ?
  11. I understand all about the C++ run time libraries as I worked as a software developer for more years than I care to remember. I will take a look though just to make sure everything is as it should be. The odd thing is that if the libraries weren't correct then these errors would happen all the time. But they don't. As I mentioned previosly it's all a bit random at times.
  12. I have noticed a slightly odd behaviour of the control surface implementation. I am using a Behringer X-Touch as a controller using Mackie Control protocol and it all works exactly as it should. The odd behaviour is that if I put tracks in folders, then minimise the folder, all the faders that were controlling tracks in that folder return to Zero. Also the highlight bar at the side of tracks that are in folders currently being controlled by the Control Surface does not always match with the tracks being controlled along the bottom of the Console view. The tracks view may show I am controlling track 20-27 whilst the console view shows I am controlling tracks 1-8. This is very confusing. Has anyone else noticed these odd things happening?

    Cakewalk Templates

    Its the Legacy that we all suffer after Gibsons mismanagement while they owned the Cakewalk brand. Sound on Sound magazine always covered Sonar in their monthly tips and tricks section, not sure it is there nowadays though. Maybe we as users and consumers should be asking the people we buy these Vst's from that very same question. It would be interesting to know exactly how big the Cakewalk user base is now ... I am sure their are enough of us that our collective buying power should warrant that they make us part of their inclusive club.
  14. Thanks for the Info, much appreciate the help, I will check those out.
  15. I have already explored most of the things you've suggested. If it was in anyway hardware related then I would expect to see similar issues with other DAW Host Software. Ableton, even though I hate it, works as expected and without encountering any of the problems. I also use Davinci Resolve ( by Blackmagic Design) for video editing, colour grading and VFX on the same PC and that is really hardware intensive, so if anything I would expect that to show up any hardware problems. The Fairlight module in Resolve is a very basic DAW for mixing and processing audio for video, it can also host VST FX and Instruments and the same plugins work just fine there, It has me baffled. I guess it's something I will have to live with and work around. Once again thanks for your input and suggestions.
