  1. This is so helpful... it will sure help out with some frustration from trying to use 2 or more MIDI tracks with only one audio track. Thanks so much!!! /Oscar
  2. Greetings all... When I set up 2 or more MIDI tracks with my hard synth (Ketron SD2) should I also create 2 audio tracks - one for each MIDI track? Or does 1 audio track used for both - or more - MIDI tracks? Much appreciated /Oscar
  3. I wish shutting down and restarting Cakewalk would get rid of the problem. The problem also exists when starting a new project so whatever it is isn't limited to one project's setup. Seems to be a universal setting somewhere. Or mebbe a bug? /Oscar
  4. I've still not found the solution. I've even gone so far as to completely remove Cakewalk and then do a complete, "fresh" install. Same problem. I'm at a loss for what to try next. This is the first time that I've seen this problem in all the years that I've been using Cakewalk. /Oscar
  5. I've found that the tracks will solo without any problems... IF it's an audio track. It still won't work on MIDI tracks. But I can live with it. I've also discovered that I can't record a Sample Tank track to make an audio track. I'm still scratching my head on that one. Again, I'll just find a way to work around it. At least some progress has been made. /Oscar I've come up with what I think is a "unique" problem... My track solo buttons have stopped working. When I click on one it mutes out all other tracks and nothing is heard. The mute buttons are working fine. Has anyone else ever come across this problem? If so, is there a remedy? Thanks, /Oscar
  6. Thanks, HIBI... I'm gonna give it a try. /Oscar
  7. Is there a way to completely uninstall Cakewalk? In a way where it won't automatically reload my old settings upon reinstall? Thanks in advance, /Oscar
  8. Well after going up and down the list of keyboard shortcut keys for like, 10 times, I resorted to opening up a new project and started pressing any number of keys to see what reaction they would give me. I finally hit on the one that I wanted! To go up and down the numerical scale in the "Key" box at the bottom of a MIDI strip, make sure the "Key" box is selected then press: Ctrl + Alt + Plus or Minus key. /Oscar
  9. I've had my Roland JV-1010 for years. I was lucky... at the tiime I bought it the 1080 had just hit the market. The music shop I deal with had one 1010 in the showcase left and it was covered in dust. The sales guy just wanted to get rid of it so he gave it to me for $150, a real steal. I managed to get the expansion card on line a few years ago... giving it thousands of sounds. most of which I'll never use but they're there. /Oscar
  10. I am not what you'd call a keyboard player - except for middle C. Therefore I use the numerical "Key" at the bottom of a MIDI strip which lets me play any other key in middle C. What I can't find is a keyboard shortcut for this box. Trying to do it with a mouse is next to impossible, or at the very least, very frustrating. I've been looking everywhere for this shortcut but can't find it. Does a keyboard shortcut even exist for this? As always, much appreciated! /Oscar
  11. John... I can't thank you enough. Thanks to your in depth and very easy to follow instructions I'm up and running!!! The way you explained it was so simple, it was like taking me by the hand to show me how it's done. I'm somewhat technology challenged. I don't get a very good grasp of things that are explained in technical terms. It has been a very long time since I've done anything with my music gear so there was a lot of things that I forgot. Obviously, how to set it up was right at the top of the list of "things that I forgot." I do have and use VSTs - Sample Tank 4 and Addictive Drums 2. But the Ketron still has a lot of great sounds so I like to use it for a track once in a while. I have another vintage MIDI sound module, a Roland JV-1010. Again, some great sounds come out of that little old box. My plan is to have both modules hooked up with my M-Audio Midisport 2x2. When I'm ready and if you don't mind, I'm going to pick your brain when I start on that project. Again... I'm so very much obliged for all your help!!! /Oscar
  12. Thanks all for the suggestions. That being said, they haven't solved my problem. I've been in touch with the techs at Focusrite and will be talking live with one tomorrow (Monday) I'm hoping that he will be able to help me out. I'll keep the group updated. /Oscar
  13. So sorry... I guess I didn't look close enough before posting... The answer was hiding in plain sight. Hi all I want to access the forum on my second device. It seems I can't find where to see or to change my password. I have to go there because I've been automatically signed in in like forever and don't remember the password. I guess you could blame it on this 60+ brain of mine. ☹️ Anyone? Much appreciated 😁 /Oscar
  14. Hi all... I know this post is kind of long but I figured I would give as much detail as possible in hopes that someone can get me to stop pulling my hair out. I’ve been trying everything possible to get this working but I keep hitting a wall. My gear: Roland PC-200 mk II MIDI Keyboard controller Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 Ketron SD-2 orchestral wizard Computer: Windows 10 Intel core i7 3770 CPU@3.40GHz Installed memory (RAM) 16gb System Type: 64 bit operating system, x64 – based processor Software (DAW) Used: Cakewalk by Bandlab Reaper 6 Synths: Sample Tank 4 Addictive Drums 2 What I’m trying to do is to use my Ketron in Cakewalk What’s happening is that I don’t get any output sounds. The way I have it hooked up: Keyboard “out” to Scarlett “in” Scarlett “out” to Ketron “in” (This, and “Thru”) are the only 5 pin MIDI connections on the Ketron.) In Cakewalk Preferences “input and output” device, Focusrite is selected. In fact, for output it’s the only choice I can make. On a new track I set the input to “Focusrite USB Omni” Output “Focusrite USB MIDI” I select the Ketron, a bank and a patch. Everything works; The blue light on the Ketron blinks when I press a key on the controller. The VU meters for the track are moving when I press a key on the controller. I can record midi on the track. The only thing is, there is no sound. Even though Cakewalk sees the MIDI signal and can even record the signal, there is no output sound. I’m getting similar results in Reaper. SampleTank 4 and Addictive Drums 2 are working fine. Is there some system setting outside of Cakewalk that has to be changed? I’ve checked to see if the Focusrite is being used as the default in and out in Windows setup. It is. I’ve made sure the volume is up in my headphones. I’ve tried to see if the sound comes out of my monitor speakers. It doesn’t. I’m at a total loss as what to do next. Any suggestions would be so much appreciated. /Bobby
