  1. it's an opportunity to leverage/increase your beat-box skills into your phone voicemail before ever approaching a computer... 🙂 who knows? the lo-tech might make it even better as a sample loop 😉
  2. i added a couple of extras things to help. 🙂 AD2 for drums, Combo F (it's the real deal 🙂 ) + SpinBag (VST leslie). GS-2 Strum (acoustic) + Saturation (plugin). SI-Bass, Lounge Lizard EP (vocal). AAS Ultra Analog Session (synth vox @ outro). I'm A Believer-MASTER.mp3
  3. yes, and we'll still end up using one of "those" 10 mics because a) they work, b) we have them in our mic cabinet 🙂
  4. agreed. just doing my part to keep this busy 😉
  5. i found foobar had too many things going on on my systems, surprising given all the accolades. so i uninstalled everything single thing i could find related to foobar, and the system is happier for it... ymmv
  6. right-click on a PC set of modules you like and then "Save Modules as Default for Tracks" 🙂 as a note: save the modules as a preset as well - i find version updates sometimes wipe out basic default settings and i quickly go in and reset them.. like console strip width reset to wide, etc 🙂
  7. maybe as a workaround there are things like Waves Tune / Pitch, VVocal (ahem...), etc which might have automate-able controls for pitch?
  8. wait until you try the blue light jewel. not only sounds better, but your playing improves as well 🙂
  9. similar issue with syntronik. after an hour or so i gave up and disabled it in CbB and removed the icons. the synths show up in sampletank 4 and that's enough for me.
  10. if it's a single recording - import into the first audio track. then split it so you have a second or two before and after each performance. drag the song parts to new tracks (keep it aligned with original performance may be desired). then copy all the in-between stuff - appluase, talking to the crowd etc into another track to you can adjust it later (for example you might like to tweak the applause and speaking bits with reverb, levels, eq, etc so it seems like the entire original set). now bounce each track to clip. this trims them and also create separate audio files. close the project. now you can use your favorite audio editor to reduce noise, clicks, pops, etc etc. depending on the tool, you could adjust from individual levels (master rebalance - Izotope). i recently used RX7 and Ozone 9 on my "work" band gig (6 piece band) at stationary bike event which had a lot of reverberation and noise going on in the room and it cleaned it up pretty well. ymmv. once done - re-open the project and do what you like to each track. i would create some busses like "acoustic" "electric" "audience" etc to feed overall levels and shaping depending on the content. finally you can export the individual tracks as desired or "create an album" track - trimming audience bits etc to get a good flow if there isn't one already.
  11. mine shows up as "Cakewalk Core" - i think this is the path to the caller app
  12. [thoughtfully crunching on the popcorn] carry on 😉
  13. i had the same sndfile issue - it was locked by the Waves Local Server process - once i killed that process, it installed fine. as a note, i ran the NX headphone virtualized room plugin and that seems to kick off the local server.
  14. a bit of sunshine. or not.

  15. thanks! i actually did have more on it originally but i liked it a bit dryer, made it feel "closer"
  16. the cache will be replenished when you install plugins but it can be greatly reduced by clearing old stuff first 🙂 i think mine is 980MB
  17. check out some CAL scripts to strip out the majority of notes - i've used the "lowest note only" script (i'll have to see if i can remember the exact name) to strip out the chord info and leave only the bottom notes which then if transpose as needed for the strumming mode. lately i just play the single note on the guitar or keyboard to get the strumming. i've found the Session Guitarist very nice but you tend to have to play it differently than GS-2 because the SG are using sampled playing and the strums don't always end once the note is off - a good thing in many cases, whereas GS-2 is synthetic all the way so it's more responsive. key switching is also important to consider. i tend to do the key switching as i play it out on my keyboard rather than waiting for later. depends of course on what my source is - if existing or already performed strumming - CAL script or manual edits, otherwise i just play it intending to use a virtual instrument.
  18. yeah, my Waves folder is about the @ 9.6GB (after clearing cache and using on v11/v12 plugins), Slate @ 7.7GB, CbB @ 3.5GB (Dim Pro, etc), Kontakt libraries @ 15GB total - but they're all on the D drive where i have content and project files. within the Waves folder are all kinds of file types which are the working bits and only the shell DLL are in the VST and VST3 directories.
  19. just another love song
  20. just in case we're losing track of the testing effort here 🙂
  21. i don't recall having issues in v8 ( i started using CW in v3) but maybe this will help: http://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=SONAR&language=3&help=Playback.27.html it seems like the compatibility setting is more for correcting things from a previous version... Pan Law compatibility mode When using a non-default pan law with floating point or 24-bit audio, Cakewalk would previously apply the pan law twice; once at the clip level and once more at the track level. In SONAR 8.5.2 and later, pan laws are only applied once at the track level and only for mono tracks. Any clip pan envelopes will continue to work, but behave strictly as a balance control. If you have existing projects that use a non-default pan law (i.e. other than 0dB center sin/cos taper), the mix might sound louder in Cakewalk.
  22. brillant! i thought there was something like this as well, but being a context menu guy, i was looking for it under a context menu option...
  23. yeah, for some reason i find a bunch of stuff hiding in the (x86) including 32-bit apps when i'm pretty specific about 64-bit versions only... thanks for the link to the treesize, i'll give it a try.
  24. i use the WinDirStat app periodically to find folders that are "heavy" - Waves, and a number of products including Slate, any number of virtual instruments etc often install some large libraries and supporting files into the ProgramFiles and Documents folders as well as Program Files folders. i think at this point i have about 30 links to move this stuff off my C:/ drive on onto my contents drive.
