  1. You run the installer, and then it asks for your user ID and password. Then it loads the presets.
  2. Yeah, I definitely agree that you should talk to your doctor about it. And even though it might be hard (it was for me), it would be good to stop caffeine, at least for a while.
  3. Essential tremor runs in my family, so I figured that's what I had. Maybe I do have that, but I got diagnosed with Parkinson's last year, and tremor is one of its worst symptoms. Generally if the tremor affects both sides, it's more likely to be essential tremor. Mine affects my right side more than the left. It affects my woodwind playing more than my keyboard, and on the computer, it affects mouse usage more than keyboard. Whether it's essential tremor, Parkinson's, or just nerves, the usual drug is Propranolol (Inderal). It really helps, and for me anyway it doesn't have bad side effects. I've heard that plenty of professional musicians take it before performances.
  4. I assume you're referring to the backup scheme. I always choose Single Version Scheme. And I always choose Do not schedule. I have to select these options every time, since my choices aren't saved between sessions. I suspect that if my choices were saved, I wouldn't be having the problems.
  5. I'm still using the 2016 version, and I hate it because of the bugs. Maybe some of my problems are caused by trying to prevent it from doing backups whenever it wants. I turn off scheduling and stop the scheduler service, but that doesn't seem to convince it. And when I start the program, it immediately gets busy updating one of my existing backups. (My solution to that is make them read-only.) It's probably the buggiest program I've ever had on a personal computer, and I don't feel like paying them for another set of hassles. I am alone, or has it improved?

    Just installed the 1.3.1 update for Massive X. Here's the list of changes. Looks like no new presets.

  7. My sister was 13 when she was diagnosed with diabetes. She knew that if she wanted to stay alive, she'd have to give herself a shot every day. Nowadays she wears an insulin pump. Congratulations on your survival and recovery.
  8. BTW if you plan to see a doctor about these matters, it's nice to be able to describe your situation in terms of the Bristol stool scale. I won't add a graphic. Google it or check Wikipedia.
  9. Thanks for pointing that out. The UI looks different on my system, but I see how to do it. Anyway, I tried the update again today, and it worked. BandLab Assistant correctly indicated that my Cakewalk wasn't updated and proceeded to update it. The cause must have been the back-end problem mentioned in another topic. Apps & Features still shows BandLab Assistant 5.0.6 and 5.2.0. Maybe it doesn't matter.
  10. I think I have a slightly different version of the rabbit hole. I use Edge to download the BandLab Assistant exe to a folder on my D drive. That's OK. But when I run the bandlab-assistant-windows-latest.exe (as administrator), I get "Windows Defender Firewall has blocked some features of this app." That seems harmless, since I can click "Allow access." I can get past that and sign in to BandLab. But then it tells me that Cakewalk is up to date. (The Cakewalk About box says 2020.04.) Maybe the problem is that in Apps & Features, I can't uninstall BandLab Assistant 5.0.6. When I try to, it uninstalls 5.2.0. If I try again to uninstall 5.0.6, I get "Windows cannot find "C:\Users\Myname\AppData\Local\Programs\bandlab-assistant\Uninstall Bandlab Assistant.exe." And when I look for that file in File Explorer, it's not there. Any suggestions?
  11. Translation: I just bought the Behringer UNC202 HD interface, and I can't make it record with Cakewalk. I already installed the interface drive [maybe CD?]. I installed Asio4all, and when I try to record, the program gives me this error message: "It was not possible to open the audio recording device. The device doesn't support the current audio format or it is in use." Please, I need help.
  12. Check out The Case Against Free Will by David Lieberman. Also think of the brain as a computer, with inputs and processing. The inputs are your experience. The processing is either built in or based on your experience.
  13. BTW "Téléchargez les instruments et samples créés par nos stagiaires" means "Download the instruments and samples created by our trainees."
  14. In Spanish-speaking countries it's Tuesday the 13th that's the bad-luck day. Not sure what to conclude from that.
  15. My antivirus (NOD Eset32) won't let me open that web page. Threat found.
