  1. Mono plugins from Waves are fine and the Stereo ones work fine as well. The issue is specific to the Mono/Stereo ones. They currently only work in mono. Straight from Waves website: “Mono to Stereo components are not supported in Cakewalk by BandLab and Wavelab.” https://www.waves.com/support/tech-specs/supported-hosts#version-11 This is about Version 11, but it has always been this way. Noel has acknowledged this is a Cakewalk issue and they are looking into it.
  2. Check this thread. Waves Mono work in Mono, Stereo versions work in Stereo, and currently Mono/Stereo versions ONLY work in Mono. When trying Mono/Stereo versions on a track, those can get stuck in Mono. Normally when changing from mono interleave to Stereo interleave uou may have to Press E twice (or bypass plugin or bin then re-enable) to force Stereo interleave.
  3. My Computer had updated to 1903 and my first session after (using the Liquid Saffire 56 with a TI Chipset firewire card) was hiccuping and actually recorded glitching in the audio where the hiccups occurred. This prompted me to roll back and read more on Focusrite’s website where I found the info about it not being compatible. Luckily RX7 helped me fix the glitches. 😄 The LS 56 has always been a stable and solid beast for me till now though. Glad for those who are still running perfectly though. Hiccups don’t inspire confidence with customers.
  4. It happens to me regularly. I have a GIF ready to send in about it. Hasn’t always been like this. I’ve had to process clip gain one clip at a time.
  5. According to Focusrite’s website, their Saffire Firewire interfaces aren’t compatible with Win 10 1903 and they recommend not updating beyond 1809 for this line as they won’t be supporting them going forward. https://support.focusrite.com/hc/en-gb/articles/206849319-Windows-10-Compatibility Just a heads up for those who own the Saffire Firewire line.
  6. I personally prefer simply turning on the click and drawing in the tempo changes by hand. For me it’s WAY quicker than SM/BAN and provides instant feedback on the relationship between the music and the tempo map (click). Sometimes the drummer might rush the kick or drag the snare so setting the map by listening to the click instead leaves the map more like as if the drummer was playing with the click as opposed to having the map rush the 1 and 3 or drag the 2 and 4 with the drummer. That’s more a feel thing than a map move. (Musicians should follow the conductor instead of the conductor jumping with the musicians). So setting with the click by ear yields a more accurate representation of the actual map allowing the freedom of feel. I find the ear comes up with a better average. 😄
  7. I’ve had the frozen Transport with certain plugin GUIs open. You might close any FX plugin windows and see if that helps.
  8. Some of the Superior Drummer presets have a Compressor on the Master bus which imparts its own sound as well as a lil glue for the sum of the parts. This can make the Stereo bounce sound better unless you Bus them and add a nice sounding Compressor of your own. In the case of this kind of preset you can Bounce to track each part by Soloing the appropriate Bus or Individual Track and still impart the color of the Master Bus Compressor (won’t get the glue as it’s not responding to the sum of all the parts, but the color is there) Be mindful if you raise the Individual or Bus Fader to bounce a hotter signal when bouncing through the compress as you may need to adjust the threshold to prevent over engaging the compressor. You can also Copy the Master Bus Comp to the individuals or Busses as well for more of an all in one freeze with multi soft synth outputs set up. Or you can mute that compressor and use your own. This scenario only comes about when the preset uses a Master Bus Comp. Also, Superior Drummer 3 can also output fairly hot so a lil clipping might make the stereo almost sound punchier. For quick demos I’ll use the stereo mix. For most productions I’ll separate them out to leave my EQ and Comp options open. (I do save a stereo bounce for comparison. I also like to automate different levels of ambience on different sections. I just don’t want to have to reconnect the synth or unfreeze just to adjust a Mix move when I’m mixing with Gobs of hungry Plates. 😄
  9. This is easily accomplished using Fit to Time from the Process Menu. I like to start with the tempo map view opened to verify the changes or to select specific range of times. Select ALL tracks. There must be midi or audio data in the selected area. ( you can put dummy data here if needed) (Also, after Selecting All Tracks, if you wish to just proportionally change only certain measures, you can use the time range in the track view or tempo view to select say measure 2 to 12 for eg. ) Go to Process, Fit to Time and Select Modify by changing Tempo map. For faster tempo, enter an earlier New Thru Time. For Slower tempos, enter a later New Thru Time. (for example if you have a 3 minute selection that you want 10% faster proportionally (while keeping your tempo map of course), 3 minutes = 180 secs. 10% faster would end at 90% of the original Thru Time. So, 180 x 0.90 = 162 secs OR 2 min and 42 secs. So a New Thru Time of 2'42" would proportionally increase your Map by 10% for a 3 minute song. I do this often and get great results! I'll leave a GIF of doing this procedure over a specific range. https://www.dropbox.com/s/wt4y8xu1mdrcsq8/Speed up tempo map maintaing tempo proportions.gif?dl=0 Hope that helps! ✌️
  10. Yes it’s possible and not that hard. I’ll post the recipe when I get home. I do this regularly.
  11. Does it have anything to do with CSTranspose in your FX Bin?
  12. I’m able to Insert a 3/4 meter at measure 1 via Project Insert Meter/Key change and via the Views Meter/key (alt + shift + 6). I’m not getting that message on my end. 🤔
  13. I’ve done this very thing with Bome’s midi translator. I created a Tap tempo script that sends out Midi time sync following your Tap tempo. I even added a Glove pie script to ‘Conduct’ the tempo via Nintendo Wii mote. So all the midi is recorded first, then I set Cakewalk to follow Timecode. Then conduct the time code. Another program can be used to record the Midi of the beats, in fact you could record multiple takes of your conducting. After that you can import the midi beats to actually change Cakewalk’s tempo map. I did it more to show proof of concept. Yeah I’ve requested these features in Cakewalk many years ago. It’s pretty easy to just draw in tempo changes of ritards and accelerandos in the Tempo map view with a graphics tablet and active pen though. (Mousing is a lil tougher). Tempo map is your conductor you just have to tell him what to do. 😄
