  1. I've been on Cakewalk since Pro Audio 6, and when these forums were on Usenet! While I find Cakewalk frustrating at times, am currently editing a video in Adobe Premiere and that makes Cakewalk look like the best software ever written. I can't believe how simple features we take for granted in a DAW are completely lacking in Premiere Pro.
  2. Oh yeah, thanks, I'd love to hear what you think!
  3. Yeah, I can switch it around also with one of the hardware keys, it toggles bus/hw. But, it still randomly jumps. If it's on HW, it jumps the left slider down. If it's on bus, it jumps the master slider. But since the busses only have one slider, it makes me think it's doing the same thing, no matter where it's pointed.
  4. Hi All, I am thinking to buy the Yamaha MODX (6 or 7) and am wondering how well MODX Connect works? Only Cubase is listed as a supported DAW. However, I downloaded the driver and app and could successfully install the VST Instrument and load it in Cakewalk. It just didn't do anything because I don't have a MODX yet. Does anyone have experience with the Connect app? Thanks! CB
  5. Have you tried disabling the ctrl surface handshake, as per this thread? https://discuss.cakewalk.com/index.php?/topic/5758-arturia-keylab-mk2-in-cakewalk/page/2/&tab=comments#comment-165577 I got my keylab essential to work that way, after a year of giving up. I am considering buying the fantom and would love to know!

  7. Ha, I just started having to this issue too. I finally figured out how to get my Arturia Keylab Essential set up as a DAW controller, and depending on the controller focus, it either drags down the Hardware Left output, or the master fader. It repeatedly does it throughout the session. I thought at first that the sliders were too touchy and the input noise filtering on the controller was to blame, but perhaps it's a wider issue?
  8. @Matthew Carr is correct, the DCP latency on the Dell laptops is attrocious - they have made some pretty poor power system design choices in the hardware, and this directly affects audio performance. I would update the latest BIOS, but they really haven't fixed it. I ran into a DELL person at NAMM last year and reported it to them in person, and then sent them all the articles you can find online, but no fix...
  9. I get it all the time, from different things, my monitor speakers, my webcam mic, etc, etc. Usually if the computer goes to sleep some of these will drop. It's harmless, but annoying. Just disable as people above commented.
  10. This song started with about 10 minutes of stream of consciousness monolog from Haji Mike. I wanted a way to do some timing and tempo edits and rearrange the whole thing into a coherent song structure. To preserve audio quality and prevent resampling artefacts, I tried doing something pretty unusual. I made a second copy of the audio, and I very carefully tempo changed it and bounced it out at highest quality. I then enabled stretch, and then moving from front to back, split the two tracks at the same time, and then grouped the resulting pairs of phrases. Once I was done, I then selected the entire second track and bulk turned off Stretch, so now I had matched, grouped pairs of each vocal phrase at two different tempos. I could also name each pair inside each group at the same time, so I could keep track of which phrase was which. I then rearranged the whole thing, and then started toggling mute with the K key. The nice thing about groups is that selecting a group and hitting k will flip what is muted, so I started with one track's clips all muted, and the other unmuted. I could then very quickly edit the whole song, and by picking the fast or slow clip, improve the rhythmic timing of the vocals without any extra edits, and I could guarantee that I had preserved audio quality throughout. Anyway, I thought you might appreciate my novel and quirky way of editing vocals!
  11. For this track, I wanted to edit the vocals at two different tempos, as a way to get high quality edits and preserve vocal quality and minimize glitches, I'll show you what I mean below.
  12. Thanks all, this thread made my day. My Keylab Essential sometimes worked but mostly didn't, and I couldn't figure out why. It turns out it was the handshake. 1 time out of 100 it thought it received it, so it work. Now it works 100% Thanks!
  13. I can use my Essential 49 for playing just fine, but the DAW control functions do not work.
  14. Yes! Thanks for fixing the control surface mapping! It's always a pleasure when something I reported gets fixed!
