  1. After exporting video to AVI format (uncompressed), I use Handbrake (which is free) for subsequent conversions of the AVI file to other formats. Converting takes less time than exporting, i.e. seconds rather than minutes.
  2. Good idea. I usually use the drag and drop method and set the tempo manually.
  3. If you add TTS-1 to the project before importing the midi file, the resulting midi tracks will automatically route to different channels of TTS-1. You will be able to playback immediately and get good indication of what it will sound like. From there, you can add whatever softsynths you wish, and reroute each midi track accordingly, as Abacab suggests.
  4. I often click on blank spaces for the same reason, not necessarily that particular space, but yes I do this sometimes.
  5. Apparently the problem was due to a bug that has now been fixed in the 2020.09 update: All good now.
  6. There are 4 options: Non-linear Low Medium High I tried each of them and it didn't appear to make any difference. However if I bypass one of the plugins the GUI's behaviour reverts to normal.
  7. I've been experimenting with the LP-MB. It's an excellent plugin and works well. However, if I add a second instance of this plugin, I get the same problem as the OP. With 2 instances of LPhase Multiband in a project, the GUI becomes sluggish. It becomes impossible to stop playback once playback has been started and doesn't stop until the end of the project has been reached, after which it then responds to any key press or mouseclick that has taken place in the meantime. It's frustrating. [version 1.0.3.84]
  8. If Gswitz is correct, then my problem was due to my mistaken belief about interleave's position in the signal chain rather than anything specific to the project.
  9. Thanks. I have always assumed that the interleave was post-fx. It's strange that I have never run into this problem before.
  10. I'm finding that setting the interleave button to mono on a track doesn't make any difference. The output signal remains stereo regardless. The track contains mono clips and there are some stereo effects in the fx bin. Version 2020.05 (Build 039)
  11. Offline activation is apparently now possible in the latest version: http://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=NewFeatures.03.html
  12. Stranger still, if I bounce a clip, the waveform becomes visible at all zoom settings in the bounced clip. The disappearing waveform phenomenon only applies to recorded and imported clips.
  13. I only replaced the computer, not the screens. I also transferred the old graphics cards to the new machine. There should really be no difference.
  14. "Display Clip Contents" is ticked. I've got the picture cache on a separate drive. PicCacheMB=12000 Size on disk is only 17.6MB.
  15. On my old computer, waveforms in clips were always visible in Track View, regardless of zoom. But on my current one (with the same version of Sonar) I have to zoom in horizontally before the waveform becomes visible. I prefer to have waveforms visible at all times. There must be a setting for it somewhere but I can't find it. Is it in the configuration file?
  16. We had a power outage a few weeks ago and I was happy that my computer remained on while everything else in the house was off. Outages are not uncommon here, but also power dips have been have been more of a problem. I used to get random crashes on both my PCs and I suspected that they were caused by power dips. I have never had any random crashes on my DAW PC since I connected it to the UPS, but I still get them on the family PC.
  17. All of the installers are available for download on your MyProducts page: https://www.cakewalk.com/My-Account/Products Command Centre is not essential for these most of the installations.
  18. I have a UPS, but I don't like to overtax it with too many items of outboard gear, so I only have 3 items connected to it, including the computer. I'm not sure whether ground loops ever occur in my system. The UPS itself hums continuously anyway, so sometimes it's hard to tell.
  19. I'm dreaming of a future technology that allows you to speed up and slow down audio playback by means of a continuously variable sample rate.
  20. With Platinum the plugins are installed independently from the main program. There are several separate plugin suites.
  21. Graphics cards can be a factor too. I have a 24-inch 1920x1200 screen that I have used with 2 different computers and ended up using different display settings for each. With one of them (with an Nvidia gaming card) I found it necessary to set the resolution to 1280x800, as text was often difficult to read at the native resolution. But on the other one (Matrox card) I found the native resolution acceptable.
  22. It could be worse still if you were using Digital Performer. In some sections of its GUI the text and objects are very tiny indeed. Some DP users complain about this a lot.
  23. Right. Sorry, I was thinking of Console View rather than Track View.
