  1. As it turns out, the sharing violation isn't solved with the update of Steinberg elincer. When I close cakewalk and open again and start working on my test-project I have the same sharing violation when saving. So I "save as" and can then save the new project as long cakewalk is open. But when closing and restarting cakewalk the same problem appears. 

    My old projects without articulation maps are not affected, there I don't have this issue up to now

    I worked with Steinberg to help them troubleshoot this.

    I'm glad they released the fix. It was an issue with their licenser managing process states as far as I know.

    It's Great how the community, you and finally Steinberg come together to fix this issue. Outstanding. Do you remember Canned Heat? They had this epic song "Let's work together" back in the days . . . . . marvelous

  3. This was a strange experience.

    Yesterday I just hit the update Button in BA (6.0), Nothing happens.

    So I downloaded BA_latest (what still was 6.0 yesterday) installed and hit the update button again. BA just shuts down. So I removed, restarted, reinstalled, nothing changed. Since I had some work to do I decided to try later.

    Today I realized there's the new Versions 6.1 available at the BandlabSite as BA_latest, so I again removed BA (6.0), restarted and tried to insatall 6.1. Installation hangs after about 40%. So I stopped and installed 6.0 again.

    Just out of curiousity I started the installation of 6.1 manually (the file I downloaded before) with BA 6.0 installed and - it's a mystery - it finally works. 

    Hopefully I don't need BA to update Cakewalk next time . . . .

    I hope the business model is sustainable and they don't suddenly switch from a freemium model to a subscription   


    I wouldn't hesitate to pay for it. The app is better than ever before. But I would like to upgrade my z3ta+ . . . . . . 🙄

    As per my earlier comment. Have been trying all day without success to install. Found BLA was at 5.2.0 and updated to 6.0.0. But it is stuck  just saying installing.. On W10 1909. Will leave it for now as too frustrating.

    As posted before, I just had to reboot the PC to get the Installation working. BLA 5.2.0, but Win 10 2004. I think, it's a Windows Thing, since the next step after this flashing "install . . ." is a small Win10-window, asking if Cakewalk may change your system. Firewall? Defender? Don't know.

    Hi, i have problems with the installation. With the bandlab assistant the percentage display runs up to 100%, then flashes Installing..., but nothing happens. Not even after 10 minutes. Otherwise the installation was finished after one minute. (German version). The old 2020.05 still works.

    I had the same problem. I restarted Windows and then started Bandlap Assistent as the very first App. The Insatallation finished quickly as expected (German Version, too)

      Better too much and have some left than too little and come up short.

    Hans Zimmer......someone told me he can't read music. 

    Hans is definitely a Cubase fanboy. 

    Not to mention, a better system will fit your needs for maybe two more years than an average system. Electronics are evolving with tremendous speed. My i5 based system is 4 years old, I pimped it with ram and ssds, but by next year I'll need an upgrade. And that's late in respect of Video and Audio. 

     I 've read lately about a 12K (!!!!) Camera. 

    I heared these rumors too, Hans Zimmer can't read Music. Honestly, I can't imagine. He is an orchestral composer, I don't believe one could do that without craft and skills. But, who knows? 

    And yes, he is a cubase guy, but depending on the needs of the studios he's working with, It's said he's using Pro tools too. 

    Cheers 🍻

    Thanks for sharing your experiences.

    You're welcome 😊

    Yes, I know the Industry Standarts. And no, I usually don't do Projekt's with 100+ vsti . . . but I wouldn't hesitate to choose cbB for a Job like that. Especially since the bakers made CbB stable, solid and reliable as never before. 

    Cubase is great to work with videos, no doubt. And for composing / arranging with Symphonic Orchestras the expression maps are genius. And there is no need to render a Video direct in the DAW. Most Producers would export only audio I guess, and finish the video in the Videosoftware. Me and myself, I usually make vids of 5 to 10 min, some were  20 min, and to me it's great to export a Video directly out of cakewalk. Quality is great, it's quick and my workflow is shortened. 

    Hans Zimmer once said, the best DAW is the one you can use and work with to be creativ. Most DAWs can do the Job, there are Composers who use Digital Performer for years to score Videos for example. 

    But to get back to the OP: The better the Hardware, the more fun you'll have. I think highend Gaming PCs are a good orientation.


    Cheers 🍻

    Nothing against CbB, but I wouldn't look at it for this kind of thing. Cubase yes. 

     If it were me, I would have two computers. One for video editing and one for audio work. ..but that's me. I think it makes sense to keep them separate. 

    I have got  the better Video export with Cakewalk, not Cubase.  Tested them both.  And at some point, Video and Audio got to get together.

    Always keep in Mind,  50% of Video is Audio.

    The Audio Engine and the export of cakewalk are still outstanding. Without any ads.


    Cheers 🍻


  10. I use PSP, ACDsee and Silkypix. I like the dephts of PSP and I'm quite happy with HDR Editing. Raw batch editing is fine with Silkypix, Accdsee is comfortable and great for Management of your Collection .  Aftershot Pro 3 is nice for development , too,

    Ads is not a real problem, the different Workspaces in PSP 2019 / 2020 are great to speed up your workflow according to your tasks. 

    I like it.

    Cheers 🍻

  11. In the German Version there is no new Command "help < Get started" to start the onboard Wizzard. There is still the old "Hilfe < Erste Schritte" (help < first steps) wich leads to a Bandlab webpage. So, no way to start onboard wizzard without changing to English language. And "Workspaces" is not translated, it still remains "Brennweiten" (what is not the very best translation of "lenses" btw).

    However, small detail, but the onboard wizzard is quite useful for a newbie in Germany, too 😏.

    No big deal to implant the command, isn't it?

    Thanks for your steady good work

    Cheers 🎅

    . Slovenia. Most of people are nice and polite citizens (unlike me :P ), so all invited to trip around Slovenia, to enjoy beautiful nature (and learn some fancy expressions). We will love You :) And I'll buy beer for everyone 


    Yes, Slovenia is a beautiful country, that's very true.
