  1. The op didn't mention which ryzen 7 the laptop is running. There's a huge differencce difference between the oldest 1700 and the latest 5800. But any of them will work just great with Cakewalk and won't crash your computer alone. Like said above, don't use the internal soundchip for recording, it's not build for that at all and gets you nowhere. For playback it's fine.
  2. I was just looking at this lufs stuff. It's easy to test it in youtube. And youtube has apparently the same level of normalisation as spotify, tidal etc. Make a simple video of your song and upload it to youtube. Then right click and you see (the bottom line takes you to the control panel) how much it's been levelled. For example, if it shows 'content loudness 4dB' youtube then allows playback only at 60% of full volume. If the reading is negative like -4dB youtube won't touch the level. So the normalising only works downwards. The recommended lufs are -14 but it depends what the peaks really are. I didn't notice any added compression, just volume change. If your master is very loud but sounds good, don't worry, youtube makes the level correct for you. But if you want to look for the sweetspot between limited/compressed sound and a dynamic one, it's worth having a look before you make the final master for upload/streaming. I think this is great. No need to bulldoze a mix to keep it sounding as loud as the next song in youtube. So now you can just focus on the actual sound quality.
  3. I was advised to run the stand alone version a few times. Which helped. Now I run it before I open projects in Cakewalk and seems to work ok. So far so good.
  4. I have no idea where to start looking for cure. When opening a project Cakewalk crashes when trying to run Superioir drummer. Oddly, doesn't happen to all projects but I can't now open two of my recent projects. There's not much in the projects, only a few tracks of audio and soft synths. Superior drummer is up to date. I'm scared this will soon happen to older projects as well. So please, any thoughts?
  5. Hi Mark, I tried to pm you but the message won't move: 'msmcleod cannot receive messages.'
  6. I sent a message to Jonathan Sasor. I'm still waiting for reply. I have the bundle file in google drive for sharing.
  7. Thanks. I think the availability for these cpus will stay bad for a while. But I got mine within a week from ordering so you just have to browse shops and keep fingers crossed. I wish someone could develope a reliable benchmark test for DAWs. But maybe there are just too many variables involved. If you consider buying a 900 dollar cpu it would be great to know how much more actual DAW power you get when comparing with the old cpu.
  8. I couldn't find any reviews regarding recent CPUs and DAWs so I decided to contribute:
  9. Thanks scook! I thought it was track inspector. Live and learn. I think my issue is now solved 👍
  10. Thanks Mark! But my properties box looks like this (nothing to edit or tick):
  11. Ok. Makes sense. But where does one find musical/absolute time adjustments for a track other than the mentioned 'automation time base'. I couldn't find any. I hardly ever change tempo mid-song, especially after recordings are done. But it's good to know how the clips behave if I did.
  12. Ok. Thanks! I changed the tracks 'automation time base' to absolute and it solved the issue. There is no tempo changes in the project but some automation. What's the difference between musical and absolute in general?
  13. I just noticed an annoying bug. I have a project with two similar (L/R) guitar tracks which I have freezed to free cpu muscle. Now, when I unfreeze them the other track is two bars ahead. All clips on that track. I then need to slide the clips forward. Anyone else having this behaviour?

    Audio take lane behaviour

    If it's in the manual I certainly couldn't find it. It would make more sense if the standard editing mode was the default. Especially for new users.

    Audio take lane behaviour

    Thanks scook! Excellent! That's it! Now, why would anybody want this function behind shift? Should be vice versa. Especially if it (the toggle key) is only mentioned in a random release note. Anyway, great to have this sorted!
