  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. I can use my Essential 49 for playing just fine, but the DAW control functions do not work.
  5. Yes! Thanks for fixing the control surface mapping! It's always a pleasure when something I reported gets fixed!
  6. Downside is, I seem to have broken the prochannel module. Maybe that is it, I might restore it and find out... EDIT: yes, the version is for prochannel, and it doesn't seem to have the bug.
  7. Seems like I solved the problem. I had multiple versions of the Breveb DLL. I did a search for them and deleted two. See the attached screenshot. The program now loads the 2.1.13 version, and I have not seen the bug again. I wonder how Cakewalk chooses which DLL to load...
  8. I got this reply from Overloud: I uninstalled Breverb and Cakewalk, then did a fresh install from the Bandlab Assistant but ended up again with 2.1.12. With an empty project with only Breverb on an audio track, it spontaneously started clicking after about 1 minute. @Noel Borthwick, do you know of this Breverb 2.1.13 they are speaking of?
  9. No, it's authorized correctly. I did a reinstall and reauth but it didn't change.
  10. What has been your go-to replacement? TBH, I never really mastered any of the unique things Breverb offered.
  11. I have an issue with Breverb spontaneously emitting noise. It is either a constant static, or a click/beep that loops, depending on the settings. As far as I can tell it is a bug, vs a routing issue. Even if no audio is playing it just self-excites, and can't be stopped. It doesn't always do it when a project loads, but it eventually starts at some point , and then can't be stopped. If there are multiple instances of the plugin present, they all start doing it at the same time. Changing presets has no effect, once it's glitching out, it stays glitchy. If I suspend the audio engine, and restart it, the noise just continues, which I think confirms that it wasn't a bad input or bus routing loop. I'm on the latest CWbBL, and "Breverb 2 Cakewalk" v2.1.12, which was the version that they released when Cakewalk Inc tanked. Has anybody else seen this? I'm not sure exactly what my options are here. I contacted Overloud but haven't heard back yet.
  12. That's strange - I went to the BL booth and they kindly told me Cakewalk had its own booth on another floor. I walked over there two and had a great chat with Noel and Jesse. Two of my songs were featured, not sure about the whole playlist, but it seems many of the submissions made it.
  13. @Noel Borthwick, any updates? I'm about to head off to a songwriting camp and won't have access to my studio for a few days.
  14. I forgot to list the plugins. For Drive, the non-native plugins are: Izotope Neutron. Image Line Delay TAL Reverb II Soundtoys FilterFreak1, Sie-Q Nicky Romero Kickstart Sleepy-Time DSP Lisp (Desser) For Voyager: Neutron
  15. Awesome, I'll be at Namm with GHS Strings, looking forward to saying hi again Noel. I have two for you, both released 2019: Voyager at the Heliopause Ambient instrumental, with lyrics in morse code. Here's a music video with 3D animation I did - all of which are scientifically accurate recreations of Voyager's journey through the solar system. Drive Synth heavy dance track with vocals.
