  1. Right. That's why I was hoping the two versions would live tagether and separately on my system. When working with my long-distance partner I'll use the base version he has.
  2. Thanks guys! I got this email from e-instruments this morning: So, fingers crossed, I'm going for the upgrade.
  3. I accidentally posted this in the wrong forum. This is where it belongs. Sorry for crossposting: I'm looking at upgrading my NI Session Horns to Session Horns Pro during this sale, and I wonder if any of you know the answers to these two questions: Will Session Horns Pro replace Session Horns on my PC, or will they live together and be usable separately? Will Session Horns Pro play my existing tracks exactly as I made them with Session Horns? I haven't been able to find answers on the Native Instruments website. I'd like to be able to keep using my existing horn tracks, and I'd like to be able to share editable MIDI horn tracks with a friend who has Session Horns but won't be upgrading. Thanks! ON EDIT: I have emailed e-instruments who make this sample library, and still waiting to hear back.

On Edit: Sorry for crossposting this question -- it was a mistake. But if anyone is wondering, I found out that the base version and the "pro" version will both be installed and separately usable, and my existing tracks created with the base version will still work.
  5. The problem was in Mix Control, although I don't understand why. I normally use "Mix 1" and when I looked at it just now it was set to "Mix 3." Switching back and forth while looking at all the settings, the two mixes appear to be identical, but theunstoppable audio goes away when it's set to "Mix 1," and comes back when it's set to "Mix 3." I'm happy to get back to work, but WTH? Thank you for the pointer. I hope some day to buy you a cup of coffee. 😉
  6. This is not specifically a CbB issue, but it is stopping me from using CbB, so I'm hoping someone here has an idea of where to look for a solution. I haven't used my music PC for anything but MIDI for the past few months. Today I plugged a guitar into my interface (Scarlett 6i6) and the audio is somehow feeding into the system and can't be silenced. I hear the guitar even without loading Cakewalk -- even without loading any programs at all. When I have Cakewalk open to a project I can hear the guitar even when I have no input echo on. When I echo the guitar track I can hear it through the amp sim and through the system. In Windows Sound settings the line out and line in is my Scarlett, as always. In Windows Sound Control Panel Playback all the Realtek stuff is disabled and the Scarlett is the default line out In Windows Sound Control Panel Recording all the Realtek stuff is disabled and the Scarlett is the default line in I don't recall any changes I may have made to any audio settings -- this seems to have happened on its own (a likely story, I know.) Thanks for any ideas!
  7. Thank you, Steve! That fixed the jerky cursor. I still have a funny little sound when I stop the transport -- not what I described above, but more like a little squeak. I should also mention that during the time I was not using CbB I had a Microsoft update. I'm now on Window 10, Version 1903 (OS Build 18.362.388). Don't know what I was on before when the transport wasn't squeaking, but this one didn't seem like a huge update from MS.
  8. Just got around to downloading and trying Version 2019.09 (Build 70, 64 bit), and the first thing I have noticed is herky jerky movement of the timeline cursor as it tries to track the song. I'm using a simple template with Addictive Drums, Dimension Pro for bass, True Pianos and a track for direct electric guitar. The jerky motion happens on record and playback, although the sound doesn't seem to be affected. Also, when I stop the transport (either while recording or playing back), there's a little sound out of the monitors, kind of like a footstep on gravel, very short, very low level, but audible. I've only experimented with MIDI piano, so it's not as if I'm overloading anything, and this hasn't happened before that I recall. Anyone have any ideas? What to try? Thanks!
  9. I use a first gen 6i6 with CbB. My projects are not too intense - 30 or 40 tracks, audio and MIDI. Round trip latency is acceptable to me, but I haven't adjusted the buffers in so long I can't remember what the settings are. I think RTL playing guitar through a sim is 10 - 12 msec. I understand the second gen units are faster, and the software mixer is much better. Focusrite MixControl (which comes with the 1st gen) is not user friendly. Overall, though, I'm happy with my 6i6. Best of luck.
  10. I disabled all onboard audio drivers permanently, and switched to asio. I use it both for recording and playback as well as YouTube and other windows sounds. You have to make sure you set the sample rate and bit depth in Windows to the same as you're using in Cakewalk.
  11. The fact that you're concerned about this issue indicates you don't want to release your work with this amount of distortion on the CP-30. Nothing suggested so far in the thread will actually eliminate the distortion. I'd say it's time to fire up whatever synth you still have, play the part again, and consider this a lesson for the future.
  12. I've been trying to do this for the past couple of weeks. I wouldn't say there's no way, but so far I haven't found a good way. I insert Addictive Drums, arm the MIDI track, record kick drum for, let's say, eight bars, RTZ, record snare or hat or something (in sound on sound mode). My goal is to create a 2- or 4-bar pattern and save it as an Acid loop. But, maybe due to my ineptitude at thinking like a drummer (I am not one), so far no love. On edit: But to your original post, @Craig Anderton, I think you might be on the wrong track suggesting Reason as an accessory to CbB (objections appearing elsewhere in this thread), but an article that simply describes how to rewire anything to CbB, with some examples of useful techniques would be interesting to me.
  13. Good to know my vast ignorance might finally come in handy for somebody. @Craig Anderton, feel free to PM me if you'd like to know what else I don't know, about ReWire or... anything.
  14. I have been doing digital recording since before the current millennium, and I have never rewired anything, and don't know how to do it or why I would want to. So I'd be interested in an entry-level explanation of it. Capabilities, gotchas, advantages, reasons for doing it at all. I'm sure I could google this, but I guess my question would be "Why would I want to know?"
