  1. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS please dont change it.
  2. New plugin menu is fantastic! Well done guys, a joy to use.
  3. Does anyone else have the problem that with the new NX Ocean way the headtracking app does not communicate with the VST? The other two NX versions (Regular NX and Abbey Road) work just fine.
  4. Seeing reall improvements in terms of engine session load in a heavy project with those latest improvements! Well done guys, I'm really grateful. If you were to ever add some adaptive CPU load processing like REAPER has I'd be in dream land.
  5. Now there is only Honey left if anybody wants the Harrison emulation, then please send me a PM:)
  6. Hi Noel, That would be a trade off I am happy to have in mixing Could be especially useful at higher sample rates. I am getting more and more of these sessions for blu ray audio. As an aside for further thought: Limitiing to 16 cores only brought benefits at 96khz. At 48 the performance is worse. Very interesting. My guess is there is some RAM/CPU communications going on here which Ryzen based systems seem to be very sensitive to.
  7. Indeed very interesting. Big thank you to you that you allows us to go into the engine that deep. I am afraid I dont know exactly what is going on there. I do have a lot of Scustica plugins so maybe limiting the cores forces them the to "stay in one lane"? If you want I can send my session to you if you want to analyse it. Also since you are here: Is it ever possible ti implement into Cakewalk something like a lookahead" processing liek Reaper has? For isntance my engine load is 90% but my CPU load only 20 so there are reserves if they could be adressed. Thats at 96khz with a 4096 buffer.
  8. Through experimentation I found a potential tweak for high thread count Ryzen CPUs such as my Ryzen 3950x. This tweak made a session run without crackles at 90% engine load compared to having crackles at 90% engine load. The tweak is setting the mix thread count in the config file to your actual cores in your CPU, not your logical ones. My Ryzen 3950x has 16 "real" cores/ 32 logical ones. Go into the config file under settings and set the max thread count to your real cores, in my case 16 and set the thread scheduling model to 2. Et voila! Let me know if this improves things for you.
  9. Hi folks, Acustica Audio has now enabled a license transfer feature where licenses can exchanged/sold among users. In true black Friday fashion I am selling some of my plugins listed below for 30 dollars In brackets is what they emulate. if you take more than one the others are half price, so 15 each. If you take them all you can have them for 60 USD . For an even more detailled look please check the Acustica emulations list: https://justpaste.it/AcusticaAudioAcquaMasterList Scarlett (Sontec) Aquamarine (Shadow Hills) Honey (Harrison) Lemon (Delay collection) Orange (Orban 627) If you want these get in touch
  10. Thanks Mark, I have attached a screenshot here showing my load at 96khz, 2048 bufferin Cakewalk running Ultramarine4 and Gold4 on a single track. CPU load is 1%, Engine load about 30%. Something seems odd here. Will also send this to Acustica of course.
  11. Thanks so much for being here Mark, appreciate that! SInce you are here can I please ask you this from my post above: I wrote: "As an aside for the Cakewalk staff reading this: Can you please look into optimising potentally the performance of Acustica plugins. Even though my engine performance imrpoved with this, I'm still getting 13% engine load at a CPU/System load of 1%!!!!! I'd be super grateful! " Do you have any idea why Cakewalk and Acustica have these load issues? meaning the discrepancy between engine load and CPU load in case i dont use jbridge was massive: 20% engine load at 1% CPU/system load. For full disclosure I only have SSD's, have a new 3XS system by Scan and Peter Kaine from Scan and I looked into everything with latency mon and bios and drivers. Its all up to date
  12. Thanks Tom same experience here. Even when switiching performance mode on in jbridge the latency is lower compared to BitBridge!
  13. Wow okay! I'm posting this in case any other Acustia Audio plugin fan ever googles this. Performance of Acustica plugins can be improved with Jbridge! Wrap your plugins from 64 bit to 64bit with jbridge by enabling the option for the plugin in the Cakewalk plugin manager. Then in the jbridge settings you will need to enable performance mode (otherwise there is no effect). This has reduced my engine load running 5 Acqua plugins from 20% to 13% at 48khz on a Ryzen 3950x with an RME interface. Very cool! As an aside for the Cakewalk staff reading this: Can you please look into optimising potentally the performance of Acustica plugins. Even though my engine performance imrpoved with this, I'm still getting 13% engine load at a CPU/System load of 1%!!!!! I'd be super grateful!
  14. Amazing! Will try that now! Do you happen to know the extra latency introduced by Jbridge?
  15. Hi guys, thanks for the answers. That is what I thought @msmcleod. Obviously with BitBridge there is an increase in latency as well but it does allow me to run more plugin intensive sessions. Isnt this a thing Cakewalk could implement? The option to run heavy plugins outside of the engine in a 64bit environment?
  16. Hi guys, I have Ryzen a 3950x, Windos 10 64bit and an RME ADi2 Pro FS. I love Acustica Audio plugins but of course they are crazy CPU hogs. When I run ten of those in a session my engine load maxes out and the playback stops for some reason. However, when I install them as 32bit plugins and let them load into Cakewalk via BitBridge my engine load is half of what they have when loaded directly as 64bit. Anyone got an idea why that is?
  17. Hi Matthew, You are awesome thank you! Yes that is indeed the Kush compressor!!!! How did you find this by the way? I've deleted the plugin and now it always works. Is there any way I can send you a Paypal donation? Thanks again!
  18. Hi guys, Getting constant crashes trying to open a session. Every 7th or 8th time it works however. I've never analysed a crash dup so don tknow how they work but maybe someone has more experience? I uploaded them here. https://www.dropbox.com/s/3d4su8gesb1gv0m/CrashDumps.rar?dl=0 Would be great to understand which plugin is messing it up. Thanks a lot in advance to everyone giving this a shot! The freaky thing is it always seems to crash when loading a different plugin, there is no consistency. Some memory access issue? I am running it as an Admin under windows 10
  19. Things are really messed up now as the session crashes each time I try to load it?? Have atached it here, is there any way to see why it is crashing ? Mini dump files does not get created? Fear N' Wrath 1.cwp Is there a way to at least "reas out" what is saved in those placeholder files so I can replace the plugins with their old settings?
  20. Hi folks, I really don't know what to do anymore. I am getting a missin gplugin stand in error for 5 very crucial plugins in my session all of a sudden when loading the project. The freaky thing is that they are not misssing. I can open them just fine once the sesson loads. I have no idea why that is but they are definitely in the exact same folder. Is there any way I can point the session to find those plugins? I already completely installed cakewalk again and also did multiple vst rescans.
  21. Hi folks, I love Cakewalk. Love the UI, the mixer, the Console 1 integration. It is just super intuitive to mix in it. What I dont love is how Cakewalk is seemingly unable to make full use of my PC's power hower. I've got a a 3XS Audio PC from Scan.co.uk, Ryzen 3950x and 32 GB of DDR4 Ram, Windows 10 with an RME Babyface. I have plugin load balancing enabled, internet and anti virus scanner are of and the highest DPC latency I get in LatencyMon is 36 micro seconds. So In theroy it should all work. However in a project with 20 tracks and 10 busses at 48khz I have to run at a 2048 buffer. I get a CPU load of 17% but an engine load of 100% and occasional crackles? What gives? Am I missing a setting here (I tried all 3 thread modes in the settings.) How can Cakewalk run out of steam when it uses about 15% of my power? I do use fairly heavy bus processing and light processing on individual tracks which sadly means freezing wont work. Any help or suggestions much appreciated. I heard Reaper is better when it comes to this but I really dont want to switch.
  22. I'm so glad Bandlab got you on board Sir!
  23. Dear CbB team and users, I love the DAW we have now and really don't long for new features - despite one that I think would be extremely innovative. One of the things that constantly can fool us mixers is loudness..nothing new here. But how cool would it be if CbB could at the click of a button compensate for the loudness in a processing chain? CbB already has the great disable all FX button for each track. What I would like to see is another button next to it that can turn loudness comparison on and off. So if you want your track to be louder as a result of your processing you can do that. But if for instance you want your initial fader mix to persist and don't compensate for added loudness via plugins this thing could be a great innovation. And it already exists, albeit in plugin form: https://www.tb-software.com/TBProAudio/ab_lm.html https://www.meterplugs.com/perception I'm using this for my mixes at the start and end of every plugin chain I have. It has drastically improved my mixing decisions. This would be truly forward thinking. If many of you like this please comment here and get a discussion going to show Noel and team that his would be a great feature. I would be over the moon. And I think the mixing community would look at this DAW and think: Wow, this is really smart, why doesn't my DAW have that?
  24. Just downloading but the fact that the bug fix list is so long makes me very happy indeed. I don't need new features. I need what is there to work and to be rock solid. My clients don't need new features they need this thing to be reliable. And it seems this is the direction you are taking. And I love it. Thank you and Bandlab team! I love this Software. If I had a magic wand there are only two things I would like to see: 1) Further improvements to plugin load balancing are always always very welcome. If CbB was to reach Reaper levels of efficiency I would be a very happy man. 2) If we could color markers in the time ruler comparable to Pro Tools my sessions would be even easier to maneuver. So for instance marker section A in red and marker section B in green etc.
  25. Can someone explain how "fast bounce rendering has been optimized" in more detail please? :)
