  1. There was no demo option. And besides, I was happy with other things that it offered that I could see from videos online - especially knowing that I had one other DAW it was listed as being stable with.
  2. I never suggested Reaper was a magic bullet - just seems to work better with these plugins. For everything else, I much prefer CbB. That said, I have recently ordered a MIDI keyboard as a controller so once I have that set up that will likely be a better option than the computer keyboard in any case. I also know what you mean about the Play plugin. My main idea was using it to make texture pieces to compliment everything else - it's just handy having something which will only play notes within the scale your track is in!
  3. Ok, I'll have to give that a try, thanks. Will make things easier if I can remove Reaper from the equation especially as Cockos seem to have ruined it! And when you say about running it in MIDI mode, what do you mean by that? I've been inserting it in as a soft synth with a separate MIDI and Audio track, as that is how I've always had it set up since the SONAR days. Do you mean setting this up in a different way? Thanks
  4. I recently bought the Captain Plugins suite from Mixed in Key, as they seem like a good and fun tool to play around with. However, they don't seem to work so well with Cakewalk. For example, for Captain Play, in theory you use the keys of the computer's computer to play melodies, but this isn't working so well. Either it doesn't play anything, or it sets other things off that I hadn't intended. Has anyone got Cakewalk and the Captain Plugins to work properly together? I also have Reaper which the Captain Suite does work with, but I still prefer Cakewalk (and the latest version of Reaper is frankly horrible to the point where I am seriously considering rolling back to version 5).
  5. It's well worth checking out. Totally free to distribute, royalties paid. And their support is very good as well when I've needed to contact them to ask questions.
  6. I get my songs distributed using http://amuse.io. It's a free service, and they don't even take royalties for it - and I have received payment for my streams and downloads, so it's completely legit as well. And I've been checking out your more recent stuff through Soundcloud as well, still pumping out the quality tunes!
  7. Users of the old Cakewalk Forum may possibly have heard this song before, as I did post my original version of it back in November 2015. However, I have recently done an official release of it, having re-recorded the vocals and remixed the song from scratch. Various ways of downloading/streaming (including Youtube, Spotify and iTunes) below: https://song.link/i/1473491997 Thanks!
  8. I was looking at the piano roll last night, so please excuse me if i've missed something! Is there anyway of the piano roll editor highlighting the notes in a specific scale? So, for example, selecting the F# scale, and making all the notes that fit within that scale a different colour to the rest? I don't want to use the snap to scale option, as there are sometimes obviously reasons to use notes which don't fit within the scale. Just that this would be a useful feature for composition, especially when you're an idiot with regards to music theory like me. Now, I know the simplest thing would be to just put some stuff in using C major or A minor and then transpose, but I'd prefer to have the option of highlighting the scale.
  9. We're getting into semantics here, I think. For me, latency is low when I can record live without any noticable latency. I consider this entirely acceptable. What you show as being defined as extreme would obviously be very nice, but sadly I don't have Presonus Quantum kind of money.
  10. I have one of the low end Behringer interfaces which uses Asio4all, and I have to say I've had no issues with it. Latency is extremely low even with a relatively humble CPU and the sound quality is good. Yes, I know a interface with a dedicated ASIO driver would have been better, but it was what I could afford at the time and I've had exceptional value from it. That said, am I reading this correctly in that the Windows 10 WASAPI drivers also offer low-latency recording as well? As if it does, I may well have to give that a try and see how it stacks up.
  11. Just came on to say thanks to all the kind folk who replied - I've finally managed to get back onto my laptop and have managed to get CbB to show the missing synths. You guys are awesome.
  12. Ah lol, should have figured that one out!! Thanks, I will have to do that.
  13. What's CbB? I have set all my plugin paths via preferences so all the plugs which loaded in Sonar should load, but these two are conspicuous by their absence. And thanks for the replies...!
