  1. Hey guys - I am trying to help a friend of mine navigate the DistroKid process. He has an account, and is ready to upload his music. When we go to the Upload Music page, there are a number of Services listed, all of which are pre-checked (Spotify, Amazon, Pandora, etc...). My hunch is that for Distrokid to send all of these Services his uploaded songs and ISRC codes, that my friend would need to have previously set up accounts for each of the services he wants DistroKid to send his music to. We tried looking through the DistroKid FAQ's and came up empty on this. Can someone please explain this a little, so we do the Upload Music process properly? For example, my friend has a Spotify free account, to listen to music. Does he need to do anything different on Spotify for DistroKid to properly send his personal music to Spotify? Same question for the other Services - does my friend need to set up a business/vendor type of account for Amazon, of any of the other Services? THANKS!
  2. For whatever the worth, the Sonar Lifetime Updates fiasco was done by Gibson, making a money grab, and was not initiated by the actual Sonar development staff. I will never for the rest of my life pay a single penny to Gibson, because of what they did with that money grab and then shutting down Sonar altogether. I am SOOOOO happy that Cakewalk by Bandlab emerged through it all, with development and support with the same staff from Cakewalk being hired by Meng who owns Bandlab. There is not a day that goes by where I don't silently thank Meng and Noel and the other folks who have continued to bust hump to keep Cakewalk by Bandlab alive, with Meng footing the bill to hire the Sonar development staff out of his own pocket. That was simply amazing. Bob Bone
  3. Howdy. Has anyone run into this and solved it? I have Sonar Platinum installed to grant me access in CbB to the various plugins that came with Sonar Platinum, and I also purchased several effects for use in Sonar. I have the LP EQ and LP MB installed, through Command Center, but when I insert either/both of them into an FX Bin and open them, they both say they are running in Demo Mode. Any thoughts? Fixes? Thanks, Bob Bone
  4. I mostly posted the thread because of the 6 free plugins they are offering folks who create a free acount. Bob Bone
  5. This was in an email from them. They also are offering 6 or free plugins for those who sign up for an account with them. I have had an account for years with them, and have bought multiple plugins from them. This is their main web page: plugin-alliance This is what was in the email I got: "Dear PA friends, You may have noticed our friends at Native Instruments showing up more and more across Plugin Alliance recently. Well, we have some exciting news: we’re making it official and bringing Plugin Alliance, Brainworx, and iZotope together under Native Instruments. So, what does this mean for you? It means that, over time, you’ll have a unified audio ecosystem at your fingertips. From your first sample to your final master, you’ll be able to discover new tools, manage your plugins, and create with ease. Over the next few months, you’ll start to see more of Native Instruments across your new and improved web and product experiences. Plus, stay tuned for exciting new releases this fall. You can learn more about this here. Your friends at Plugin Alliance (now part of Native Instruments!)" Bob Bone
  6. Yeah - thanks for the responses. I will dive back into trying to set up a preset on the Arturia Mini v Minimoog emulation.
  7. I own the following synth collections, and need to recreate the glissando synth sound used right before each chorus in the Manfred Mann cover of Blinded by the Light - I have to have it ready to play by next Saturday, and would REALLY appreciate any help/guidance with this: Komplete 12 Ultimate, plus a number of additional 3rd-party Kontakt libraries. Arturia V Collection 9 SampleTank 3 and 4 Korg M1 and Wavestation emulations with all expansion packs/cards. (The M1 expansions include the complete factory and expansion sets of sounds from the T1 as well) Thanks to any who can give me some guidance on this. Bob Bone
  8. I always insert markers for the beginning and end of my projects. I then set my Start and end points to those markers. I then never have issues with rendering/exports. Bob Bone
  9. Let's everyone dial it back, to a constructive level of civility, so administrative action is not needed. Thank you Bob Bone
  10. Howdy, Michael. I have a friend that lives fairly close, who is looking to see if he has any TRS 1/4" cables, and if he has one or more, I will try them out, to see if that fixes the issue. I will read the A-800 Pro manual later this afternoon, to see if anything applies to the issue. Take care, I will post the results of any testing I do, but it may be a day or two...... Bob Bone
  11. Howdy. I have a Roland A-800 Pro, which has a quarter-inch port for an expression pedal. I also have a Behringer FC600 volume/expression pedal, that I would like to be able to use to control MIDI data, such as volume, for a soft synth that is triggered by the A-800 Pro MIDI controller. I cannot seem to get this to work, even though I am using a stereo (TRS) cable to connect the Behringer pedal to the expression pedal port of the Roland MIDI controller, which is per the scant documentation for the Behringer pedal. Anyone have any ideas? Bob Bone
  12. I am about to head out the door, for the next 5 hours, so did not have time, at the moment, to find the link, but there is a document that lists all of the various key bindings in Cakewalk, and I used to have it printed out and handy. There are LOTS of key bindings out there, and you can create them. I set the left and right arrows to advance to the previous or next Marker, which is extremely handy, for moving around in my projects. Hope that helps, got to jet, Bob Bone
