  1. Thanks, Colin, I'll check that out I have played with clip colors before but haven't found a way to adjust the colors for the automation views. I'll give it another look.
  2. Hi Theme-Heads, I find that is hard to see the waveforms in an audio clip when I select an automation lane to view. The duck-poop foreground color and the similarly-valued grey background are hard to distinguish. I'd like to have more contrast between clip background and foreground in those situations, but I can't find a way to edit them in the Theme Editor or in Preferences>Colors. Does anyone know where to find and how to change those color defaults? Thanks, Bill
  3. Marcello: Here is another free plug-in from Voxengo that might help. https://www.voxengo.com/product/correlometer/?eref=ml Good luck. Bill
  4. Oh, there's a copyright violation. Please send me 7 cents, and do not pass Go. Glad it's still up and usable. Enjoy. Do you still have an ESQ-1? Do you know about the SQ8L VST and this user group? http://lists.buchty.net/listinfo/sq80 ESQ-1 and SQ80 devotees. Cool folks. Aloha, Bill Saunders
  5. When you add real or virtual MIDI devices, the MIDI inputs and outputs often get rearranged. Best to add them and leave them connected even if you don't "select" and use them. This can also happen if you delete soft synths.
  6. Two thoughts/questions to help diagnose: 1. Are your instruments recorded as wave files or they "recorded" as MIDI and being played with soft or external synths? 2. Did you change/update audio drivers recently?
  7. I have this problem with some plug-ins and tracks if I have "zero controllers when play stops" checked under "Preferences>Project >MIDI." Try unchecking that and see what happens.
  8. <<<To me that sounds impossible. I think you need Cakewalk support on this one. This sounds like corruption. >>> There's been a lot of that going around, but there is an update due in Washington next month which may get rid of some of it. Probably not all.
  9. Ahh, I hadn't considered that since I haven't been using those.
  10. MIDI just goes one place - to the output(s) you assign it to. Its simply digital instructions to your MIDI devices, soft-synths and MIDI-automatable units. It doesn't get amplified or processed or messed with unless you have MIDI FX in your FX bin, in which case it make a pit stop there and is tweaked before heading to your output. Otherwise it doesn't go through any gain staging, busses or other manipulation.
  11. What synth/soft synth is your MIDI feeding to make the sound that is too loud?
  12. Because it has been striving since the last century to be free and to get the respect it deserves. It's finally free, and it will never be captured again.
  13. Hi Dominic: Welcome to the forum. It always helps if you include you systems specs, including processor, motherboard, RAM specs, etc. Also, let us know what buffer settings you are using: Under "Driver Settings" - Buffers in Playback Queue and Buffer Size; and under "Sync and Caching" - Playback and Recording I/O Buffer Size. Those all may be factors but no one can help if they don't know how you have those parameters set. Otherwise, 1. First, I would suggest that you try turning off "Suspend Audio Engine When Cakewalk is Not In Focus." 2. Do you have any other programs running in the background that use that audio interface? If so, close them. 3. Did you disable all USB power saving? If not, do it in Control Panel > Power Options > Edit Plan Settings > Change Advanced Power Settings > USB Settings > USB Selective Suspend Settings: Disabled 4. Do you have another audio interface or soundcard enabled? If so disable it. 5. Did you download and install the latest driver and firmware from this website? https://www.steinberg.net/en/support/downloads_hardware/downloads_ur242.html If not, do it. 6. Also, did you see the note on that website that says: "Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver The TOOLS for UR come with a Yamaha Steinberg USB driver component included. However, a newer version of the driver for your USB audio interface might be available on this page ( https://www.steinberg.net/en/support/downloads_hardware/yamaha_steinberg_usb_driver.html ). The driver component can be updated separately in this case." Good luck, Bill
  14. I agree. I do too, largely because of the ease of inputting metadata and saving it for tracks within the Nero "compilation." You can then update those tracks later with new versions of your wave files and still keep the metadata you entered for the earlier version, as long as the name of the file is the same..
