  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. BTW "Téléchargez les instruments et samples créés par nos stagiaires" means "Download the instruments and samples created by our trainees."
  6. In Spanish-speaking countries it's Tuesday the 13th that's the bad-luck day. Not sure what to conclude from that.
  7. My antivirus (NOD Eset32) won't let me open that web page. Threat found.
  8. I've gotten used to putting little bits of black electric tape on LEDs. Even my acoustic piano has one. But I leave the yellow (add water) LED uncovered. You can always take them off for troubleshooting.
  9. The problem with the silent track I mentioned is still in the original song, but I can't reproduce it in other songs. BTW I noticed that while patch names are displayed in Massive X when the song is saved and reopened, the preset's category is lost. It's always "All Types." Also, in a saved and reopened file, there's always an asterisk by the preset name. I guess that means the patch has been changed, but I don't see it until I save the song and reopen it.
  10. Plus some new factory presets. Among other fixes, it displays envelopes graphically and saves preset names. I tested this in Cakewalk. Edit: I layered two instances, but only one plays after I save, close, and reopen the file. Tried it with another file, and it works OK. Anybody else?
  11. Translation: I have a Presonus Fire Studio card with Cakewalk, and the audio engine keeps stopping and it doesn't let me do anything. The latency and setup are correct, and I've tried 20 times. Is something like this happening to anybody else? My PC is an i5 with 16MB RAM.
  12. I'm a little disappointed with this update. It didn't fix the problems that were bothering me: - When you reopen a Cakewalk project file, the MX preset name isn't displayed. The workaround (close the MX UI and reopen it) doesn't work for me. - The user preset folder doesn't support subfolders. - Only a few pieces of the manual are available. NI seems to be working on these issues, so I guess we just need patience.
  13. In December 2017, I bought a package from Magix with Samplitude and SpectraLayers. I also have Sound Forge. Intrusive ads and saturation marketing are some of the reasons I wish I had never dealt with Magix.
  14. Every time I started Windows, I got a huge ad from Magix. Changing settings in Windows Notifications didn't touch it. Hitting the monitor with my fist didn't help either. Here's what did. Start -> Administrative Tools -> Task Scheduler. Click Task Scheduler Library (on left). Find Connect on the right and click it. Optional - open Connect and look at the Actions. You'll see ...MAGIX\Connect... Right-click Connect and select Disable. Is there a better subforum for this kind of tip? If there is, I hope the forum admins will move it there.
