  1. I can't specifically answer the question, but I can say that I have a Nektar MIDI keyboard that has faders and transport controls, and the only way it can work as both a MIDI controller and a DAW controller is to install a specific driver. So you might check with the manufacturer of your keyboard and see if there is such a driver for it.
  2. Thanks as always, @scook! I hit play and rewind a couple of times and I was able to save my project.
  3. What does this mean? When I save this project, it appears to be saving it, but then a message box pops up titled "Cakewalk," with the message "General Error" and an OK button. No further information. I can keep working on the project, but yesterday I got this same error on closing the project and I retried a few times, then I just closed the project, hoping one of the save attempts worked. But no: I can no longer open that project because "The file is truncated." Opening in safe mode gives me an empty project. Today I'm working on an old safety copy of that project, and it's been fine for eight hours (saved several times successfully), but now I'm back to "General Error" when I go to save. I get the same error when I try to save a copy. Anybody have an idea about this, or seen it before? Thanks! UPDATE: The last thing I did before the above problem happened was to archive four MIDI tracks and four audio tracks, I just un-archived those tracks and I was able to save the project. Don't know if these things are related, but thought I'd mention it, just in case.
  4. Include this article and this one in your research.
  5. No reason a 2012 Windows 8 PC wouldn't work, as long as it's the 64-bit version. I'm using a machine at least that old, although it's running Win10. As I recall, though, there's an 8.1 update that you should get from Microsoft.
  6. Thanks for clearing that up for me, @msmcleodMark. Generically, I've always thought timbre refers more or less to tone, which led me to think that "multitimbral" would refer to a voice or an instrument with many different tonal facets, as opposed to completely different voices or instruments singing and playing completely different notes and rhythms.
  7. Not much of a synth/MIDI expert myself, but I'm guessing the OP means a soft synth capable of playing a bunch of different instruments simultaneously on different MIDI channels. I'm vague on the terminology but would that be "multivoice?" Or some other "multi-?"
  8. I'm going to have to defer to someone smarter than I to figure out your issue here, but while we wait for that person you should maybe ask yourself what are you doing differently from the good old days when it always worked? And why are you turning off your audio interface?
  9. Don't know. Can't test right now. You might want to make a copy of your project for safekeeping in case this doesn't work the way you want it to. Best of luck.
  10. Turn on Ripple Editing Copy the tracks/measures you want to insert somewhere. Select all tracks Put the cursor where you want to insert Paste (the copied tracks will go in and all the existing tracks will move over) Turn off Ripple Editing Assuming you're using a recent version of CbB.
  11. 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.
  12. Thanks guys! I got this email from e-instruments this morning: So, fingers crossed, I'm going for the upgrade.
  13. 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.
  15. 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. 😉
