  1. Just to confirm, have you gone into your BIOS and disabled EIST abd C-States
  2. My Sonar Platinum projects have all opened in Cakewalk by Bandlab seemlessly The "online tool" you mention is not the same as Cakewalk by Bandlab. Cakewalk by Bandlab is installed via Bandlab Assistant with can be downloaded from here: https://www.bandlab.com/download/assistant/windows Remember, when you create your Bandlab account, use the same email address that you used for your Sonar account. Do not uninstall Sonar Platinum if you plan to use all the goodies that came with Sonar Platinum (or just to test things).
  3. Further more, if you have a multitimbral VSTi (like Sampletank, UVI workstation, Kontact, etc) then you one need one instance of the VSTi for multiple sounds.
  4. Did you open the inspector for the MIDI track (Select the MIDI track and press i ) Then look down the bottom of the inspector for "In/Out". Just above the track name is where that MIDI track is being routed. If you have loaded soft synths, the loaded soft synths will be listed there. MIDI ports will also be listed.
  5. Is the synth or VSTi physically modelled or does it use samples. Also, does the VSTi actually repond to program change events. If the VSTi is physically modelled and it responds to program changes (like Applied Acoustic Systems VSTis for eg), then the patch changes are responded to pretty much instantly. If the VSTi uses sample and it responds to program changes, then there will be significant delay while the sample is being loaded. In that case, maybe freezing the track might be in order. Regarding the list of patches. There are some VSTs that populate this list - otherwise you have to read the manual for that VSTi to know what program change commands to send. If you're using a hardware synth and you have correctly loaded the appropriate Instrument definition file (INS), then the patch list will be populated with the correct patches for that hardware synth. This is assuming the INS file contains the names. Bottom line is that it depends entirely on the VSTi or synth.
  6. What happens if you reinstall the updates, yet uninstall (or disable) Realtek network adapter driver afterwards? Note: I have an onboard Intel gigabit wired network adapter enabled at all times (including when CbB is being used) and I do not have any glitches I do not have any form of wireless adapter on my PC. Is your network wireless or via cat5e?
  7. It's not a hidden file. It's just the extension that's hidden. Select AUD ( which is actually AUD.INI ) file and hit F2. Then rename it to something like AUD_Back Obviously do this with Cakewalk closed. Ideally you would want to change folder settings so that extensions are not hidden. This is done in Control Panel | File Explorer options, "View" tab, then deselect "Hide Extensions for known file types"
  8. My SI instruments are definitely 64bit Did you install them using Bandlab Assistant? (assuming you are using Cakewalk by Bandlab)
  9. There is a more recent Nvidia driver (dated 1 Oct 2019) than what you have that is compatible with the GT635. Still update it, even though I don't think this will stop the pops and crackles. https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/152007/en-us Do you have onboard audio that also may need to be disabled? Have you disabled core parking on your CPU? Turned off speedstep? (Intel sometimes calls this EIST) . In Advanced power settings set CPU min and max, both to 100% Go start run and "control powercfg.cpl,,1" (copy and paste without the quotes) to quickly get to these settings. In fact, disable any and all power saving options you can find.
  10. Are you using version 436.48 of the Nvidia drivers? (assuming a GTX600 or above card). And did you disable the audio component of that card in Device Manager? One other setting you might want to change is set Power Management mode to "Prefer Maximum performance". This is in the NVidia Control Panel, Manage 3D settings.
  11. Yes. If you check the MIDI track settings (using the inspector or console view), you will see where that MIDI track's output is directed to. Currently it should be set to the TTS-1. All you have to do is click on the MIDI output drop-down and select the TX16Wx (assuming you have installed the soft synth) . If the TX16Wx is a hardware synth, simply select the MIDI port on which the TX16Wx is physically connected to.
  12. Have you gone to Preferences | File | VST Settings and done a Reset and Scan (in that order)
  13. Did you do the following? Decrapify it (i.e. remove all the pre-installed software) Install all updates for Windows 10 and vdist runtimes (These are not included with Windows Updates) Update all hardware drivers (Manually visit Manufacturers websites rather that rely on auto updates) - graphics, Audio I/F, network, etc Optimise according to various DAW optimisation guides around the place. Core parking off (CPU Min and Max at 100%) All power saving you can find off (in AC mode) USB power saving off If Nvida, set power saving to "Prefer Max performance" (In 3D settings) Others may have more things to try.
  14. Uninstall and reinstall the drivers for your audio interface and your graphics card (whether onboard or dedicated). If this fixes it, tell Microsoft never to update hardware drivers via Windows update. http://woshub.com/how-to-turn-off-automatic-driver-updates-in-windows-10/
