  1. Depending on how old one is it is highly unlikely one past 20 or so has hearing that does come close to 20 to 20 KHz. Our hearing over time degrades. This is normal. The older you are the less chance you can hear very high frequencies. Most humans cut off around 15K when older. This becomes more pronounced the older we get. If one hasn't been very careful with protecting ones ears from very loud sound that in and of itself can damage hearing greatly. Saying that it becomes hard for me to believe anyone over middle age has hearing acute enough to make any definitive statement regarding the merits of high sample rates through listening. I am 70 and though I hear well for my age I also know people that are younger than me that can't hear music that I have no trouble hearing. Still I would never put my ears up against a 20 year old or younger when it comes to acuity. Also it is true we have learned to hear what we remember even though actually we are no longer able to hear what we think we hear. A simple test is using flat frequency headphones and use a sine wave generator and sweep it up to where no sound is heard. Check what that cutoff is. I'll bet most can't get beyond 15K. BTW it is a very complicated subject and I have only touched on the most basic points here. There are a slew of variables that impact all sorts of points regarding human hearing.
  2. No, though it could if one is willing to write the dll to do it. Mackie had a C4 version that did that.
  3. Its not often we see this sort of thing in the new Coffee House. Sorry but because we have had complaints this thread is now locked.
  4. It could be the 16 audio outs are for 16 MIDI channels that is part of the MIDI spec. That also implies it is a multi-timbral synth.
  5. Marry Christmas to all and to all a Happy New year.
  6. If by chance you pressed Pause it is possible what you are seeing is a feature in CW to maximize CPU. From the Cakewalk Manual "Like the Scroll Lock key, the Pause key now works as a special GUI throttle toggle key. When the Pause key is pressed, Cakewalk runs in a CPU conservation mode by reducing the frequency of GUI updates. For example, VU meter updates, Now position pointer and progress updates will appear to update less frequently."

    Free reverb from Arturia

    I finally got it activated! I like this reverb, worth every penny. 😀 It really does sound good.
  8. One of the cool things about Cakewalk and Sonar before it is the ability to use a bus for auxiliary and groups as one wishes. To Cakewalk they are all the same but very versatile.
  9. Good point. One can set a bus as the default bus. This will automatically route any new track to that bus. I like to have more than one buss for different instruments . Like drums go to a drum bus and GTs to another but all outputing to the master bus.
  10. A master bus is created by the user. In the mixer just right click on somewhere to the right and it will give the option to add a buss. You can name it anyway you want.
  11. This could be a problem with the VST loader for Cakewalk. The Sonitus plugins are DX and don't use VST style loading. I suggest a reinstall of Cakewalk from a new DL.
  12. Its their best complete version. It features polyphony pitch correction among other features.
  13. I don't know if a child window is going to show up that way.
  14. Looking at you video it looks to me that Cakewalk is not the current app on your desktop. There may be another window hidden by Cakewalk that needs a response from you. Minimize CW and check what is under under it. Or move it out of the way.
