    Btw I've found a workaround for the bounce issue - I can use ctrl + A and select all tracks before going to the export menu.

    It's not a "Workaround" in Cakewalk. That's by design.

    Hi guys. I recently started having a laggy behavior (no settings at all have been changed to cause this) in CbB with my RME Babyface I. I started a thread about this in the RME forum because I thought it would be an interface problem, but as far as I know by the moment, this sudden issue is related to Ryzen (I think) and RME. It does not happen at all in other DAWs or even in an old W7 installation with both SONAR and CbB.

    This issue is happening to people running Windows 10 with Ryzen (normally after one of the last Windows updates), and CbB as DAW. And all of them are using RME stuff, which all of you know have one of the most solid drivers. With this issue the DAW is completely useless using RME ASIO driver.

    Try some of the advice given here too.

    Can you explain the ghost clip? No other clips have done this.

    Well, It hard to say in your case. It depends on what you think a "ghost clip" is. 

    You get routing issues where the same melody of lets say "track 10" plays through track 6 all of a sudden. I've heard users claiming that to be a "ghost clip." Others do editing on a midi clip where the clip gets automatically cut as you draw in notes and calling these layers of clips "ghost clips." 

    There's automation too - a rogue node that wasn't deleted. They call these those too. 

    If understanding correctly what you are describing above in the OP - I'd say yes, the daw is supposed to do that. Example you can't have a snap of a WHOLE NOTE and expect to drag the clip on ticks when the snap is on. It will jump by a whole note, 1/2 on half note, 1/4 on quarter notes - call it steps. It takes the length of the "snap to" in jumps. 

    Should it be that a clip has been cropped - well, that's literally just what that means. All that information at the beginning or end you've removed by cropping that clip. You have to bounce, "commit, or render in place," (depending on what language the DAW use) to remove the information you do not need. 

    Example: let's say you have a string that is a 100cm long and you fold ot in half - you not going to have a string that 50cm long just because you fold it. It will still be 100cm of string just folded (cropped) in half. You will have to cut it with a scissor to get it permanently on a 50cm length of string. 

    I will demonstrate this in a video as soon as i'm done with clients projects. Why it won't move etc. I'm currently working on the Mac system in Logic. 

  4. My wife had Covid in Feb. We've done 2 home test each, over a period of 4 days including a lab test. All the home tests showed negative - with her lab test positive and my lab test negative. 

    Don't know how covid works. When I had it last year - she tested negative. With her testing positive in February - i was the one that escaped the punishment this time. Don't know should or shouldn't we trust the home kit.

    Check boxes aren't relevant to this case. No tears here. I don't even buy Kleenex. :D

    Lol. 🤣

    On a serious note: Those boxes goes together with your snap settings and your issue. Read their titles and with what you're experiencing. 

    You can also read the documentation if you do not believe me. 

    If your snap is on let's say a 64th note and you change to a 16th note - every time you do a snap of on a 16th it will retain the length of the 64th snap. I've experienced this before. Since my clips are always selected in preferences > snap settings its snaps correctly everytime even if i change my snap notes constantly and readjust them. 

    You can also do this for automation and others.

    I had to do a fresh install, which I did a couple weeks ago. I'm now getting the RED warning that "Cakewalk experienced a problem with activation. Please contact support. (20)

    When i click contact support it goes to the old website. So how can we fix this?


    You need to sign in to your CbB account to do a refresh on your activation. 

    Do this from the DAW. Locate the sign in link under the HELP tab inside the DAW and enter your details. It should do the refresh by itself - should it not for some reason - click on refresh activation after you have signed in. You should be good then.

    I have an SSD 

    SSD aren't all that you know. They are great no doubt, but they burn out quick 3/5 years? (They are like those pesky mobile memory cards we used to have.) Hack! I've got an HDD that's running on 10years now in my test machine. 

    I'm running my second SSD in my Main machine and I only have it 5/6years. i7 6th gen 32GB ram. 

    I'm just saying here that it might system related. Like you've said, you had something running in the background.

    Cakewalk never did this before.

    E.g. I could load a single track project with just guitar. Click play and silence for about 5 seconds then it starts working,
    other times it works straight away. Has anyone experienced this? Sorry if this is the wrong place to put this.
    I couldn't find a specific bug reporting section.

    I get this from time-to-time on my test machine and laptop, but never experienced it on the main system (it's offline.) I only connect when there are updates available, both for windows and CbB. 

    The other two are constantly connected. So, i think it's safe to assume that theres a disk reading that's busy to refresh itself. It can also be because your "antivirus" are doing a quick scan before releasing the project for playback. It can also be a plugin, or your hard disk trying to locate the stored files. Then there's those background apps that are running at the same time. 

    Its somewhere in the line of these things. Nothing to be worried about. It's not DAW related. 

  9. I was just about to say. I have never come across a feedback from my midi controller | nor | drum machine - with a bunch of other long explanation, but then David said it in a smaller paragraph. 

    "Just turn your echo input off." Like bdickens said: It is by design.

    When was this stated?  If you say around 2017 to 2018, then I would have thought “in the near future” would now mean “by now”....

    I couldve showed you, but seeing that you're trying to be an a** about this Go search the threads yourself.

     I haven't found the correct combo of settings in CW preference settings, the midas sends out 48K 32 bit via USB 2 and is an ASIO driver, I do see in the control bar that CW is set to 48/32.


    Okay we'll work with your here. We all have different systems, with different experiences and different fixes. So we'll combine heads. Try running in 44100/24bit and lets check if that fixes what I am think of quick. It might be a long shot though. 

    Then make sure that you only have the Asio driver selected in Windows own audio pane in settings. Next make sure that in set to 44/24bit in windows in inside the DAW. Should this work with these setting - you can move back to 48/24bit and bumb one more up to 48/32bits

    Hey, sorry for getting back so late... I have the newest version (orange icon) and still doesn't work now...

    Yep. We are all still waiting for the upcoming release. 

     Try bypassing all your different compressors in the project and see if if renders without any issues. 

    But for the "last used path" issue on the export window - it has been mentioned that it's been fixed in the next release.

    , today they had the garggled clocking noise. this is confusing.


    It sounds like a latency issue. Try setting it to 256 or 512 under preferences. 256 should be just fine though - assuming gargling noise means pops and clicks.

    As it stands, if I open a pane for the first time it will open docked, which is as it should be.

    However, to make it go away entirely, I have to undock it and click on the "X" to banish it completely. I'm pressed for real estate on my 14" laptop, so I do a lot of view/pane management. It's mostly an issue with Synth Rack, which I don't open very often and don't need to have open or available all the time.

    My feature request is to add a "close" entry to the Docking Options button, which will close the pane entirely (whether it's docked or undocked). As follows:


    You've really made me look deep into this, by just starring at my screen for a minute. 

    This is a lot of windows within other windows. 🙆🏽‍♂️ Never noticed it that way and now it is bothering me. It kind of looks unattractive. 

    What would be nice (but probably will cost a redesign of the interface) would just be to hide the docks under the window borders.

    Example: The two flyout arrows of the browser panel, can be built-in next to the ripple edit on/off tab - there's space for it. So it can just be moved underneath the scrolling border window? Same goes for the Multidock and the Inspector view, but its probably a whole redesign of the Track view as i've mentioned above. 13 years in and all of a sudden it looks bulky to me now.  🤣

    Problem: When the Snap Module is ON some clips don't move properly when trying to drag them
    1. Record a clip from point zero
    2. Split the clip into several pieces and move them around (moving works initially)
    3. At some point none of the clips will move to the left

    When selecting a clip you can see the Aim Assist line move to where the original "mother" clip started, in this case point zero.
    This prevents it from moving to the left because CbB thinks it's already at point zero.

    Conclusion: Apparently CbB is applying the original clip's beginning point to the cropped clip.

    In the case of a clip very close to point zero, selecting it moved the Aim Assist line to point zero and displayed a faded "ghost" clip several measures to the right (Looks like it's having an out-of-clip experience). It wouldn't move. However, the ghost clip did move, but only to the right of where the real clip is. When releasing the mouse the real clip will move to where the ghost clip was.

    Remedy: Bounce each clip or turn Snap module OFF! But you shouldn't have to do either.


    Have you tried going in to preferences > snap setting and tick all the relevant boxes in there? Set your snap "To" and not "By."

    Cell Network data I think is very pricey compared to Cable or Fiber optic internet. And in my Daughters case,  as for many rural people, there’s no cell service for miles around. 
    If you want to use cell network data you can also just make your phone a hot spot. 

    This depends on your state and country. It might be expensive in your state and country - sure! It can also be cheaper in another.

    Both cable and cellular data are pretty cheap in my country all networks and even fibre.

    $1 for 5GB cellular data a month? Thats cheap. That is why I brought this up - it might be affordable in @marled country too.

  17. I don't think to this will happen. It means a plugin would have to be created for this use. It is a great request and has been requested before, but there was a lot of debate around this on the "Why's and Not's."

    I think there was an answer of - its up to the hardware presets to offer these functions. 

    Certain requests come with a lot of politics.

    +1 for this. 

    Workaround for now: Open a new project - undock all the windows you don't want attached in your workflow and workspace. 

    Go up to the FILE tab > Save As. In those two drop down menus on the new popup window locate "Templates" and save as default template or overide one existing one by replacing it. I've created one years back and named it "New Empty" and made it my default template. Everytime I open CbB it open on this one. 

    Export it to USB pen drive or your External hard drive for a next time you redo your system or upgrade. 

    I used it this way on a 19inch Monitor screen. I still do on a main system with a 24inch screen. There are certain things you grow into and floating windows was one for me. You just need to learn your shortcuts for the windows you constantly use. The letter "i" open the inspector. Letter B the browser. Alt 9 the Synth rack if i'm not mistaken.
