    MIDI Sound on Sound Bounce to Clips

    Lasso select clips and bounce always worked best for me.

    Icon Platform-M, Sonar Platinum

    I'm not trying to be someones advocate but from other forum topics I could see that Alexey was open to colaborate on connecting new hardwares to Cakewalk as long as the owner is ready for some work. Not sure he's doing that stuff anymore but I thought for myself once I'll buy the icon I'll keep the opportunity to work with him as the last resort if anything else fails. One thing I particularly like about his software is that it's highly configurable and if I've read it right (and I've read it quickly) you can use some combinations of buttons to ignite custom functions of the DAW from it. With this option I would love to make the icon control the pro channel and plugins.

    Icon Platform-M, Sonar Platinum

    I just wanted to say in advance a thank you for any updates on this topic. I'm keeping my eye on the Platform M quite some time already, really would like to see it working with Cakewalk. Was wondering if the azslow software would be any helpful for connecting this controller...?

    Cubase 30 Year Anniversary Sale

    Thanks guys. I'm less interested in the arranging/composing tools and more in detailed MIDI data manipulation. From the comparison I can read that the famous logical editor is available only in pro version. Although I already had a few conversations on the differences between Cubase and Cakewalk I still can't quite figure out what is the advantage over Cakewalk in terms of MIDI editing, maybe it's the logical editor, maybe something else. In Cakewalk we have interpolate and cal scripts for example. Also didn't see much benefits from having Elements over LE version, mostly track count and more inputs for simultaneous recording.

    NI Blocks Base

    Thanks abacab! I was suspecting they have got replaced with the Base version.

    Cubase 30 Year Anniversary Sale

    Am I loosing much of the excellent MIDI tools (whatever they are) if I go for Cubase Elements instead?

    NI Blocks Base

    Guys, in 2015 I've got so called Blocks Wired from NI as a xmas gift. Still didn't try it out. What does that one differ from the Blocks you're talking above? Is it something obsolete now, or replaced with this new Blocks? Thx

    One Year of Cakewalk by BandLab Celebration

    I would vote for bug fixes and especially when dealing with huge projects like tens of tracks with many small clips, tons of softsynths and huge amount of MIDI data each if there was an option. Little surprised that MIDI editing is not getting more love so I decided to help it a bit for those of us who typically work with software instruments. Really diggin' this! It's so much different from toggle the 'N' key when you're already holding your carefully selected song portion with the mouse and just now realized you forgot to turn that snap thing on (or off) again...

    T-RackS CS Deluxe is version 4. Four lovely classic processors (eq, comp, clip & multiband lim) plus 5 additional plugins - pulteq, fairchild, opto comp, brickwall limiter and linear phase eq, that are even more lovely. I already have all of them looong time No need for the Custom Shop CS version if you are installing Deluxe. If you have Custop Shop 5 already installed then I think you only need to click "Restore my gear" in the custom shop app. I'm not sure if Deluxe is installing with any additional presets though.

    The T-Racks bundle registered finally in my account as version 4. The sad news is that there's no direct upgrade path from T-Racks CS Deluxe to 5 Deluxe, unfortunately.

    @Peter - IK Multimedia on this site https://www.ikmultimedia.com/news/index.php?id=sampletank4 i read: "Any customer who purchases or receives any version of SampleTank 3 as part of a hardware or software bundle on or after November 13, 2018, will receive SampleTank 4 SE for free at release." and "Any customer who purchases SampleTank 3 SE, SampleTank 3 or SampleTank MAX on or after November 13, 2018, will receive the equivalent version of SampleTank 4 for free at release." I registered my Sampletank 3 SE in my account but I don't see the ST4 SE version added. Should I open a ticket at support to sort it out, or is this "version of SampleTank 3" received/purchased "as a part of a (...) software bundle" deliberately excluded from those rules? Cheers.

    What you mean "defunct"? Usually previous libraries work in newer Sampletank player, so I assumed ST3 SE library should work in the new ST4 free version, or am I wrong this time? Cheers.

    Any idea how much is the upgrade price from TRack-S 3 Deluxe to Deluxe v.4 or v.5? Are the upgrades going on sales for cheaper? Cheers.
  15. They have wrapped up the library with their own proprietary vst plugin, which itself seems like an upgrade for me.

    Goodbye Riffstation - gone after March 15th...

    Is downloading the app enough "to future-proof", or do I have to install/register/anything sort of thing? I will be buying new PC but doubt it will happen before 15 March.
  17. I've read somewhere that we've been given only the cloud option for saving 3 projects in the free PT version. Maybe I missed some details about saving projects to disk.
  18. I use WeTransfer. It's free, doesn't need for any sign up and u can send really huuuge files. Cheers

    Boston Flowers Theme 1.2 [3-29-2019 update]::.

    Thanks @Matthew White. Well then, it's really great to have the choice between tiny and big skins as the selection grows nicely. My old laptop is outrageously low in RAM, and now I can go try to figure out if the skin size matters here on my system. Cheers!

    Demo mode. Why?

    Valid points @Kurre, also any info in BandLab accound and especially simple email notification (that will give you resonable time to re-authorize) could much help.

    Boston Flowers Theme 1.2 [3-29-2019 update]::.

    I downloaded only 655KB is that fine? I mean, all other skins are more than 2MB, some much above 10MB, didn't expect such differences are possible but I'll take any reason .

    Beware importing midi - a warning!

    Or/and select a few MIDI tracks and drag VSTi onto them, then a dialog box would appear (optionally) for setting outputs etc, where you can select if you want to assign them all to the mains or to multi-outs subsequentially?

    Why is Cakewalk by Bandlab free?

    Interesting reading about Mac-vs-PC and the users response to pro solutions, or lack of them https://www.pro-tools-expert.com/home-page/2019/2/7/pro-tools-users-abandoning-apple-mac-for-microsoft-windows-new-poll-shows-alarming-results Edit: I realize I should have posted it in the other thread about low latency interfaces but oh well .

    Changed from 16/44.1k to 24/48k then back. What a mess.

    True, looks like I was too quick with my response. Next time I'll make a coffee before answering and actually drink it first . Just checked again, the situation I was talking about is when the wave file has same length but different name so... absolute opposite 🙃. I have then tried to expand the clip in project and save, but after changing length of the wave file in wavelab, Sonar imported it with previously saved length regardless the longer clip, you were right. In my test, using wav files with the same sample and bit rate, if you change the length of a wav file outside cakewalk, then on re-opening the project, if the wav file is longer than previously, then it gets truncated, if it's shorter then cakewalk will fill gap with a silence. After changing the sample rate cakewalk truncated the length. Shame. So looks like Cakewalk doesn't allow to simply change the sample rate of waves files, you have to create new project and import newly converted files into it. At least it only worked that way here.
