  1. What is Waves Update Plan? Asking for a friend...
  2. Right! You can kill it, but only if the plugin is NOT running. If you exit the DAW and/or plugin, UJAM continues to run in the background. If you try to close the UJAM task while the plugin is active, UJAM politely asks you to close the plugin first. WTF?
  3. Is it just me, or is Usynth always tied to the UJAM app? I have the Usynth "Drive". What I have been seeing here is that the UJAM app starts up every time I insert an instance of Usynth in a project. And I cannot fully close the UJAM task until I delete the running instance of Usynth. This is strange, and it has happened with every DAW that I have tried it with, not just Cakewalk. Sometimes a DAW's plugin scanner triggers the UJAM app to launch in the background if it scans Usynth. My other UJAM instruments do not do this.
  4. Those appear to be mainly microphone IRs. Sound a bit odd when loaded into a convolution reverb, but that might be sound design material for some!
  5. Selectively reinstalled Perfect Space from my old Sonar 8 install disk to recover the IR folders. These work great in MConvolutionEZ. They defaulted to the path: "C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\Vstplugins\Perfect Space". So if you are looking for them, check here. Acoustic Guitar Acousticas Bass Amps cRaZy Digital 300 Guitar Amps Kicks and Snare Plates Real Spaces Springs Synthesized The Great Outdoors You-1 Piano I must have cleaned them out a while back when I uninstalled all of my old versions of Sonar, except for Platinum.
  6. I have Perfect Space installed (as a 32-bit VST) but seem to have lost track of the content here. When I have some time I may try to recover the folders from the Sonar installer.
  7. Just to make your problem even worse, have you taken a look at the free Melda MConvolutionEZ yet? https://www.meldaproduction.com/MConvolutionEZ A nice tidy collection of IRs, with rooms and spaces neatly organized in a browser. You can also open your own custom IR folders directly in the Melda browser. The free version is basically a preset machine, with basic controls for dry/wet, widening, hi/lo pass filtering, and pre-delay.
  8. Good find, thanks! When I have a spare minute will need to check them out. Lexicon was bundled with Sonar Producer up through 8.5. It was either dropped or replaced by something else in X1. Perfect Space Convolution was also available at the time from Sonar 5 through X3. Here's a spreadsheet based on earlier work by members Mudgel and scook, that I updated years ago when Platinum was still king. Sonar plugins Sonar 3 to Platinum spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1qNsnKBASsnsALygDDQSQ4jFW6yhZIJZcIpfwH-6qgy0/pubhtml?gid=0&single=true
  9. That file is not available in the standard Platinum installers as far as I can see. I presumably installed them into a folder in my local drive years ago, but have no clue to a source link for them.
  10. With all respect, that conversation was over a year ago. All good since then! Cheers!
  11. Linux (technically GNU Linux) is a UNIX-like operating system. MacOS is a UNIX-certified system. Windows is neither. Windows programs can only be native to UNIX or Linux (or vice versa) if their program binaries have been compiled specifically for the target OS. That part is up to the resources available to a developer to develop cross-platform applications. Not all choose to go that route. That's where dreaming is likely the only answer! In fact Gibson/Cakewalk made an attempt at one time years ago to make Cakewalk cross-platform, but that project got cancelled early as there were too many issues to overcome. Obviously those were business resource constraints, but it illustrates the additional challenges if a program is not originally written from the ground up as cross-platform. But then add 20+ years of Windows-only baggage to the problem and there you have it! Cakewalk is Windows to its core.
  12. Just FYI, you are posting a computer and Cakewalk question here in the "Instruments & Effects" forum, so not as likely to get as many views as you would in the general "Cakewalk by BandLab" forum. In any case, you probably should post your system specs in your signature to better inform those who are trying to assist.
  13. Great advice! Take a look at the "Startup" programs in Task Manager (programs that launch every time you boot Windows), and disable any that you don't absolutely need.
  14. That's the setup that I used a while back when I got my Focusrite Scarlett 2i2. Should work fine!
  15. You been working out or something? 💪
  16. That Mello-Fi is an interesting plugin. Got it the first time! That tape stop effect can be fun. From the manual: "Tape MELLO-FI is a powerful lo-fi effect plug-in derived from our Mellotron V software instrument. It allows you to impart the unique sonic character of a vintage Mellotron to any audio track in a recording project. Exceedingly simple to use, it provides instantly audible results and can be just the thing to make a track stand out and cause your listeners to wonder how you got “that” sound. Essentially, Tape MELLO-FI makes any audio track sound like it is being played from vintage analog tape. (Note that Tape MELLO-FI is not a virtual instrument itself. You’ll want Mellotron V for that.)"
  17. Or maybe acaca-cucu? Or bubuga? 🤣🤣🤣
  18. I had a friend introduce me to Genesis during the mid 70's. Selling England by the Pound, Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, A Trick of the Tail, etc. Good times!
  19. I would settle for a 2-pack... Fame & Stone Room.
  20. Still working on my chops too, LOL!!! I have always admired many of the legendary progressive rock keyboardists, such as Emerson and Wakeman, but Tony Banks of Genesis was a favorite of mine. Been a Genesis fan since long before there were only three of them remaining, but grabbed that name as a nod to them. Less obvious fact: A-B-A-C-A-B was an early song structure used for the song, and it stuck as the name. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abacab_(song) Maybe I should actually change my name to ACACACUCUBUBUGA??? LOL!!! 🤣 But how would you pronounce that?
  21. The important thing to consider here is that you are not constrained to only purchased Toontrack MIDI packs. If you have your own collection you can import them as well!
  22. Just asking for a friend... does anyone actually use the Tascam/Teac Tape machines?
