  1. +1 for this - and generally enhanced render options.. Reaper's export options and wildcard system is excellent and such a huge time saver.
  2. I use a dell laptop, and disabling this driver fixed all my issues. I've been running this Dell Inspiron Gaming Laptop for 4 years with no hitches since. I think I also disabled the bluetooth driver, both of these issues were found with LatencyMon. On the subject of the XPS, I use one for video editing, and a laptop fan helps. It gets hot quick due to the small casing. Getting it off the desk with a cheap fan underneath helped a lot. I don't think this will typically translate to straight audio work, but it's good practice.
  3. Every plugin in Reaper, including 3rd party plugins have wet/dry control so it's certainly possible. The small dial next to 'UI' is a wet/dry control.
  4. Thanks for the reply. I got this response from Softube too and it worked. I've had no issues until now thankfully. I'm pretty deep in Console One land, so switching would totally destroy my workflow. I do agree that their support needs to be much better though, especially for being a 'premium' plugin vendor.
  5. Agree agree agree, this is definitely an issue. Also, when you insert an External Insert on ANY channel, you can't solo any bus or aux track. If you do, no audio hits the master fader and the result is total silence. This is another bug. This really needs an update.
  6. One thing I'd like to know is why it's not marketed better. The cakewalk social media platforms are pretty much dead, the user base seems small, and it generally seems overlooked. The bandlab pages are active, yet zero to minimal mentions of Cakewalk on their website or social media. It gives me a slight worry that one day it might just die quietly. Cakewalk by Bandlab is infinitely better than any previous version of Sonar. I actually don't know how I put up with the bugs in X1, X2 (the worst) X3 and Platinum. I've only realised since having a very stable CbB. There's still a few minor niggles but the overall improvement has been drastic, even from Platinum. I opened a recent, big project in Platinum and the audio engine went truly crazy, however in CbB it played no problem. This is not a dig. I want more people to know about this platform and to use it. It's really much, much better than it's ever been and out performs a lot of the competition.
  7. I haven't actually, but I was thinking about doing it right now to see if it helps. Thanks for the heads up on KVR, I will check.
  8. Does anyone here use Softube plugins? Every single one of my softube plugins have started crashing my projects out of the blue. The first time it happened was actually mid session and they have never loaded since. Crashes happen upon loading a a new plugin, or opening an instance which is already there. I have re-installed, updated, moved install location, re-scanned....various times, and I'm still getting the same error. Very, very occasionally the VST2 versions will open, but most of the time they crash like the VST3 versions. I know this is a Softube issues, but just wondering if anyone here is experiencing the same/have any quick fixes? My sessions are covered in Softube plugins! Thanks
  9. Agree with this 100%. As it stands, 4 free i/o on my interface is only allowing me to run 2 mono compressors, when ideally it should allow 4. Also fix the bus solo error when using external inserts. When mixing with external inserts, solo'ing any bus doesn't work and it's impractical. Sadly, I think anything to do with the external insert plugin will be a low priority for the team.
  10. I use buses for submixing, but I tried using AUX tracks to do exactly what you're trying to do. I got the same error. I can't remember exactly, but I'm sure I got it to work by internally recording audio into the AUX track and then freezing. I assumed the freeze aux error was happening as I was trying to freeze a track that had no audio inside of it. If you don't know already, you can arm the aux track for recording and hit record to capture the audio inside the aux track. I'm too used to bussing, so quickly forgot about it, but let me know if this helps.
  11. Go with an interface better A/D + D/A a headphone amp inputs for recording outputs for monitors you primarily play guitar You have a lot more options with an interface, and you can use the piano roll/step sequencer with your mouse in the meantime.
  12. Agree with this, AudioSnap needs an overhaul. It's really clunky drum for drum editing and quite behind other DAWs.
  13. Same here, I only have the C1 version. Its more than enough like you say. Great sounding strip, especially for shaping busses.
  14. The main thing I enjoy about the console one channel strips is that it makes so many of my other plugins obselete. I think it's ended up saving me money!
