  1. I mean, surely someone else using Sonar doesn't like these views active in EVERY project and has found a way to stop them always being there??
  2. Seems they are "forced" open on everything! Even when closed and a project saved they STILL keep appearing. How do you close them so they stay closed?
  3. I am trying to create my own basic.cwt and have most of it set except, the browser view on the far right, the console and the arranger track, which I want to remove/hide/close from the basic project, keep re=appearing when it is opened. IIRC these were retained in older versions. Can they bey saved in this Bandlab version? thanks Using 2020.05 version
  4. And if you could get a really stripped down version of windoze with none of the totally useless bloat -then there'd be even less folks even THINKING about Linux...And even though W10Pro let's you do a lot under the hood, it is still buggy. crashy, and full of shite! I am not advocating for Linux, mind you, just saying MS really should look at light versions that serious users of PC's running audio and video work (and not worrying about games compatibility and performance, or surfing the web) can use. As they won't, then, well, users will try to find alternatives that do. They are certainly not delusional!
  5. Just lately I have been having this random issue where MIDI notes are just hanging, requiring a MIDI reset using the reset midi/audio button. I have tried it now with three different controllers and with three different VSTs. Has anyone else had this happen recently? Thanks
  6. AFAIK and as long as you have a default installation (ie the TTS is installed) if you "open" a midi file the TTS will automatically be assigned to all the parts of the MIDI file. If you purchased a commercial MIDI file then it will be setup according to all the GM (general MIDI) protocols. The TTS synth is a GM sound module, it's pretty awful but will do the job of allowing you to identify parts. Some commercial MIDI sites provide a track listing in the docs, but not all. If you import a midi file then you need to assign the TTS yourself. Then highlight all tracks hold the ctrl key and select the TTS as the "OUT" destination on one track (or you can do it one by one if you wish) this will then assign the TTS to all tracks. Personally I use things like addictive drums and Sampletank 4, however I do use the TTS initially to establish what is playing where and with what sound.
  7. TBH I gave up in the end and just reverted to the AZController using this preset http://www.azslow.com/index.php/topic,283.msg1349.html#msg1349 Only things to be aware of is that the NK2 needs be set to factory default , and to have the buttons assigned to "Toggle" and not momentary for all except the FF and RW tabs...apart from that I had to do no midi learn as all the sliders knobs and buttons worked using that preset. And interestingly enough, after a reload of Sonar all the tracks had the coloured tab??? I guess it was set somehow by the creator of that preset linked. I won't mark the thread as solved though as I still have no REAL idea of how it is done..hahaha!
  8. okay...I have now got the NK2 to work for Vol Pan mute solo etc etc, using AZController...BUT I cannot get the transport buttons to "learn" anything. There is no option for it to learn...how do you set the transport controls on the NK2 to run in Sonar under the AZController? Thanks
  9. It's the thin coloured bar that appears at the far left of the tracks pane when a controller is being used. I can get the controller to work on other tracks but the coloured bar seems to be only available on one track?? I can move this to another track but I cannot seem to get multiple tracks included
  10. thanks - yeah I tried AZController, but it just seemed way too complicated. I don't think it allows "midi learn" either. For example using the AZ I could not get Sonar to "see" the transport controls on the NK2 - and setting other parameters, using the screens provided under AZ, seemed like a "spreadsheet jungle" to me hahaha!
  11. Thanks SK - that is the one I am using. I posted a question on the thread he participated in, but no response so far. His file is good, I just need to be able to modify one knob to a CC # other than "hard wired" to PAN.
  12. thanks, but only got the one controller. I have since discovered that all the knobs are preset to PAN...so that is why the jumps. I juts now need to find a way to modify the MACKIE control .inf file but I cannot find it anywhere!
  13. Using MACKIE mode (in Sonar - I select Sonar Mode on the actual NK2 [SET+REC buttons when powering on] ) when I assign one of the knobs to the main volume slider it only jumps from -71 to -8 to +6 ?? all the knobs are the same - afaik, in MACKIE they are supposed to be full range, IE 0-127. Any ideas? EDIT: ok the knobs are auto assigned to PAN! so that explains that. Doesn't seem to be any way to assign the knob to any other CC apparently.
  14. thanks (I posted the question on the second link, hopefully I can get some answers there ) - in the interim I have managed to get it working via the MACKIE Control preset...however when I assign one of the knobs to the main volume slider it only jumps from -71 to -8 to +6 ?? all the knobs are the same - afaik, in MACKIE they are supposed to be full range, IE 0-127. Any ideas?
