  1. Good news keep coming today. Thanks for this update!
  2. That's right. Reaper really shines in this matter. It has the least problematic approach among DAWs that I know or tried. You make a very good point. I have the same attitude towards stock plugins. I noticed Blue Cat Audio Patchwork in a lot of videos over the years. I'm aware of what it can do, but somehow always wanted to avoid it. Just like I'm staying away from bridging 32 bit VSTs in Reaper. You provided some valuable info. Thanks for sharing.
  3. You are correct. I noticed that too. However only in Cakewalk I have stumbled upon such a "requirement". To keep the clip length even, make the last note even. Thanks for the input. We have a winner! I don't think I would have ever guessed that this option was responsible for truncated clips. Thanks for sharing this tip.
  4. Thank you for the suggestion. I actually thought about chaining tracks together, but very quickly realized how counterproductive it would be. I'm also discouraged based on the amount of time I already spent on this issue. Sure it would be a workaround, but I'm all about simplicity, so I'll pass. I can't believe that such an advanced DAW doesn't allow a function, which to this day I took for granted. Chaining a few MIDI effects together and being sure that data will be transferred from one to another. Really disappointing.
  5. Thanks a lot for taking the time to answer. I especially appreciate the sentence quoted above. I'm glad I asked on this forum. Wasted enough time already looking for a solution. Now I know that what I wanted to achieve was not possible.
  6. Hi. When I first installed Cakewalk, I noticed that all my third party MIDI effects were placed in the Instruments category. Today I wanted to create FX chain with three MIDI effects and couldn't do that. "Save FX Rack as FX Chain Preset" was greyed out. None of these effects generate sound. In other DAWs: Ableton Live, Reaper, Waveform they always appear as MIDI effects, which is not the case in Cakewalk. To be more precise, I mean a free set of effects from developer CodeFN42 and one effect from eaReckon called MIDI Polysher. Is there a way to change classification of these effects, so they appear in proper category? I've already looked in the Plug-in Manger, but couldn't find any solution.
  7. Hello. This subject has been bothering me for a long time. No matter how many times I try, I can't figure out the solution. At measure 1:00:000 I start recording a MIDI clip. When I press stop, it usually ends up with uneven length. Example from my current set: 7:03:869 (M:B:T). Now I can select this clip, go to Properties in the Inspector and manually input 8, which results in new clip length being 8:00:000 (M:B:T). So far so good. Can someone explain to me, why this new length changes back to where it was as soon as I duplicate this clip or even move it slightly within the track? Is there a setting I'm missing? It also doesn't matter if I use the Edit tool for this task. The clip changes length after any movement anyway.
  8. I've finally found the reason why I couldn't see this plugin. It looks like some VSTs are not available, when I have custom plugin layout active. When I switched to "Type" view in Audio Plugins, Big-Sur showed up.
  9. Can someone confirm that they installed Big-Sur plugin from this collection and it appeared in the VST folder? I tried it in Cakewalk and couldn't find it. I even performed full reset and scan of all plugins. Big-Sur still not showing up. In Reaper I had no issues. It also worked in old version of Ableton Live. That's the very first VST which I couldn't get to work in Cakewalk.
  10. Thank you for your response. I should be more precise in my first post. Recreating shortcuts is not an issue, especially since I haven't had a lot of them, yet. My question was more about the disappearance itself. I thought that shortcuts would simply be available again, once I properly restarted my laptop with external disk connected. This wasn't the case. They never showed up. Perhaps you have some information about the divided menu?
  11. I honestly thought someone would know the answer. Manual doesn't mention this particular thing.
  12. I can confirm that import works fine for me. I selected option to split to mono and it did.
  13. Hello. I store all my samples on external hard drive. In Cakewalk's Media Browser I saved some shortcuts to folders with sounds I frequently use. Yesterday I launched Cakewalk without the external hard drive. It was switched off. I ran the program for a few minutes, didn't even use the browser. Today I launched Cakewalk with external drive present. I noticed that my custom shortcuts to folders were gone. Is that possible? How can I retrieve them? Also, can someone tell me, why drop down menu in the Media Browser is divided like that, with partially duplicated directories? Is this how it's suppose to look?
  14. That's correct. Again correct. It doesn't make sense. However example of Ableton Live comes to mind. Everything in this DAW is processed internally at 32 bit. As far as I'm aware, this behaviour can't be modified. So to avoid unnecessary bit depth changes, it might be a good idea to keep all internal recordings at 32 bit. It's even recommended in user manual. On the other hand, in Reaper there is a field named: Track mixing bit depth. It gives user a choice, which is a great feature.
  15. It's true that Melda Production has gone much farther with oversampling capability than any other vendor. However it's usually recommended to use the lowest amount of upsampling until aliasing is gone, at least to save some CPU power. I remember checking Voxengo Tube Amp and comparing all modes. When I got to 8x, which is the maximum, all nasty stuff was gone. Bare in mind that it wasn't a low level signal during my test. I went totally overboard to see what this little gem was capable of. Tube Amp is free if anyone is interested to see for themselves.
