  1. I'd like to see a non-destructive normalization function as well. I guess it shouldn't be too hard to calculate the right amount of clip gain increase to set the level curve to the right height...

    Sonarworks BF Sale

    I have this, too, with Focusrite 2i2 3rd Gen. It happens only with bigger ASIO buffer sizes, 1024 samples producing the most annoying stutter and some kind of audio slowdown. I don't use the new Sonarworks Systemwide ASIO mode, but the Windows Audio mode. An upgrade to Sonarworks has been released since I tried, so maybe I should give the ASIO mode another try now. This is not that big of a deal, but it would be nice to be able to keep the Focusrite buffer size at whatever value and not have to tweak it to listen to Spotify or Youtube. The problem hasn't gone away with the latest beta driver from Focusrite.
  3. @Noel Borthwick I just did some testing and it seems no crashing occurs with projects now, even when Sonarworks VST is active. I tested with a couple of projects, one of which even has a few 32-bit plugins in it. I even tested changing the buffer size on the fly (= project playing back), still no crash. Maybe it was just "one of those days". 🙂 Everything is ok now, and I guess we can close this case.
  4. Yes, will do that a.s.a.p. I might try to reproduce the crash again with more details as to what I did before it. Now that I quickly tried using the buffer slider with a very small project which has the Sonarworks VST in it, no crash occurred. 🤔
  5. It's actually that latest beta driver. 😁 Sonarworks is running in my projects as a VST, which disables the Systemwide (which is always running as well). My settings force the Sonarworks Virtual Audio Device into use at all times. I've not experienced BSODs in a long time with Scarlett, which is nice. I also experience terrible stuttering of Windows audio when setting the Scarlett's buffer to the larger ones. That's probably more of a Sonarworks issue, which I should report to them to get the situation remedied - they'd probably fix it for tomorrow, that's how responsive their support is. 😊 I have to switch to larger ASIO buffer sizes for mixing larger projects with Cakewalk, and then back to smaller to make the stutter go away, when using Spotify, Youtube or such..
  6. Thanks for the update, seems to work quite nicely all in all. Using the new latency slider crashes Cakewalk on my system, though. No exception dialog is shown, the UI just vanishes and the process dies. This is after I OK/Apply the change. I'm using Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd Gen with the latest drivers and also Sonarworks Studio Reference, the latest version, on Win 10 1903, with latest updates. I also have the Sonarworks VST in the project. I have a crash dump I can deliver for post mortem examination... WinDbg analyze shows heap corruption (again).
  7. I think I'll leave it at zero now that it works again. Export can take as long as it likes if it just doesn't crash. 😁 There were no problems before I started to adjust the buffer value, so I don't think tinkering with switching driver modes is necessary. I might still check again with the larger buffer, if it crashes in ASIO mode. Thanks!
  8. It might just be that I didn't have the slightest clue about what I was doin' with it... 😊 No touchy-touchy, if no understand!
  9. Thanks again for the reply, @Noel Borthwick! I noticed I said "two bounces got to the end" when I meant "two exports". I can try to fiddle with the settings. The buffer size of my Scarlett 2i2 3rd Gen was set to max (1024 samples), when BounceBufSizeMsec was 100. That buffer size is in milliseconds and the Focusrite's is samples - isn't the max audio device latency then much less tham 100 ms at 1024 samples? When the export was crashing, I noticed that before there was any progress shown on the "Mixing down audio" indicator, Cakewalk took a couple of seconds seconds as if it was allocating a big chunk of memory or something. When BounceBufSizeMsec was back to 0, there wasn't such a phenomenon and the mixdown began right away - and progressed to the end.
  10. Just FYI, I got the export working again: I'd changed the BounceBufSizeMsec in the configuration file to value 100 at some point "to improve export speed". The export speed was fast after that, alright, because the export crashed for whatever reason pretty fast right after starting it. I set the value back to 0 which seemed to remedy the situation. Two bounces got right to the end as usual. I needed to disable no plugins in the process. -Pete
  11. Thanks for the reply, Noel! I suspected it would be some plugin myself as well. I had added a couple of instances of MCabinet by Melda, but their stuff has never given me any problems. It's a new one though, so you never know. I'll go through the process of elimination for the latest plugins added and see what I find. -Pete
  12. I'm suddenly experiencing constant crashes with exporting, also with projects that have been exporting ok earlier. Playing back the entire project works always ok, but export shows an error, sometimes in Windows components and sometimes plugins, but there seems to be no pattern to this. Also, trying to freeze instrument tracks might succeed, but there's a crash after that trying to freeze more instruments, or just starting playback. Sometimes CbB just quits with no error message box, sometimes it shows a message box. I took a look at the debug dumps with WinDbg and the cause of every crash was "heap corruption". @Noel Borthwick, what do you need for checking it out? The debug dumps and the project file? Does audio need to be included as well? Thanks, -Pete
  13. Check out Bass Professor and Bass Professor mk II by Sonic Anomaly - they're very good and free! I've had success more than once to bring life to DI bass sound with these. The original site seems to be down, but these float around on various plugin sites for download. Definitely worth a try, especially at that price... 😊 -Pete
  14. This is what happens if I check for drivers for my registered Scarlett 2i2 when logged in to Focusrite's site, only Focusrite Control: The link I provided shows the driver only download, and seems to go to a different page. I guess the latest Focusrite Control already includes the said driver version The link also shows the download possibility to download a suitable driver for 1st Gen Scarletts:
  15. Hmm, strange. It might be that I wasn't logged in to my account, when I checked it, so it didn't know what I own and showed me everything. 😊
