  1. If the MIDI track is muted, it won't play. If another track is solo'd and the MIDI track is not solo'd as well, it won't play. Otherwise, it should work.
  2. When you want acoustic instruments to sound "acoustic", nothing beats a microphone in an acoustic space. The difference between using my piezo equiped nylon string guitar wired vs recorded via a mic was so different, I stopped trying, and used mics. Of course, if you want that piezo sound (it is useful for some use-cases) then you're good.
  3. The same thing happened to me just now - I guess my browser cached it - pressing F5/Refresh manually in the browser brought up the latest version 0.9.5.
  4. Uh... there wasn't a deadline :-). Your post about the Transport Background was the trigger for me to update the doc earlier today, so yeah, it's included. I didn't use your images, though, I generated some new ones. Oh, and I see a spelling mistake. Oh well.
  5. FYI, the document at the URL in the first post has been updated to 0.9.5 which includes changes posted here by users since the last update in December.
  6. I think you've misunderstood the purpose of the menu option - you're changing the current setting of one of the two rulers. If you want to remove the rule entirely, use the [-] button on the far right of the ruler.
  7. This should work unless it is a mono bus, or an FX plugin on the bus is in mono. Have you reproduced with a simple project? One track, one stereo bus, no FX plugins? Then add the plugin to the bus, see if it changes?
  8. Um, not sure if this is helpful or not but here: http://www.prodigalsounds.com/blog/post/2019/08/05/Using-a-MIDI-controller-with-Guitar-Rig-VST-in-Cakewalk
  9. For what it's worth, I am using Windows 10 1803, Echo Layla3G, latest Cakewalk 2020.01, flawless performance. So it might not be that clear-cut. I've seen more reported issues with "up-to-date" Focusrite drivers than I have with the W7 Echo drivers.
  10. Interesting... I did not notice that. I assumed that the "Thumb" color was also drawing the arrows. I will update my document with this information.
  11. I'm getting an update notification as of yesterday. Is this intentional? Usually I check in here to set my expectations before blindly applying an update...
  12. Make sure you use a pop filter to remove plosives, they could cause distortion. (I still use nylons over a bend wire coat hanger, because it just works.) Other than that, creating a little vocal both can end up with a flat sounding take, but that is kind of the point. You should be able to improve a vocal take with emphasized mids using an EQ plugin - it might just take some finesse. Check out a few videos for ideas.

  14. Doh! Yes, that works. Thanks scook for being a timely and bottomless resource of knowledge. The bigger problem is why Cakewalk isn't recording these events in my performance. Update: It doesn't seem to transmit them, either. Well, bollocks. I need to test this in another DAW. Update 2: Or, I could just test it again in Cakewalk with the correct MIDI cables plugged in. And the patchbay set appropriately. Move along folks, nothing to see here.
