  1. A pad based sample player that would allow the user to assign all of it’s controls (folder and sample navigation, edit functions, parameters, etc …)to any midi controller the user chooses. Samples should be able to be selected by pad or by kit, in real time, without having to stop CxB(Cakewalk) and load kits. It should be capable of loading samples on the fly. Example: I have a drum beat I created and looped, I don’t like the snare sample I’m using. I can just select that pad, navigate to whatever sample folder I keep my snares in, and using the sampler’s increment/decrement controls I’ve mapped to my controller, I “scroll” through each sample in real time and as I hear it being played by whatever midi pattern I’ve programmed. Once I find the sample I like and press select, it’s loaded onto the pad I’m using. All without having to stop playing the loop I’ve created. Nothing gets in the way of creating drum parts like having to push stop, go back to your keyboard and mouse and click through sounds or worse yet, drag and drop, just to swap out a snare or kick. Scrolling through or using an increment/decrement set up is so much better workflow wise. And, of course, the sampler player should have all of the usual bells and whistles of any good sampler. It doesn’t have to re-invent the wheel. Just be be good at the basics and be easy to use.
  2. I figured it out. It was pilot error actually. Thanks for your responses everyone.
  3. To my knowledge, I'm not using a wrapper. Just the vst. Also, the other Sonitus plugs seem to work fine with the exception of one or two others. One would think it would be the other way around. The DX versions wouldn't work, but the VST's would work fine. Anyway, thanks for your input. I'll take it up with support going forward.
  4. Yes, but shouldn't the VST version still work in CxB (Cakewalk)? BTW, I never bought a separate version of the Sonitus plugins. I've only ever used the versions that came with Sonar, and now CxB (Cakewalk) over the years.
  5. Whenever I try to use the VST version of Sonitus' Compressor, I only hear static. It's like I'm trying to use the plugin outside of Cakewalk in another DAW. Am I doing something wrong? Have I missed some info from the last update? Does Cakewalk not support it's use anymore? BTW, the DX version works as expected.
  6. It has nothing to do with the quality of the instruments. You'll have the same "claustrophobic" results if you had the most expensive sample libraries known to man. You just need to learn modern mixing techniques. Also, picking the right sounds helps a lot. That's all. Here is a great series of videos to get you started: https://youtu.be/fEHf57RoC4s Also check out: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=dave+pensado+mixing
  7. I know how frustrating hings can get. Whenever you upgrade any plugins, make Cakewalk rescan your VST's. Usually what I do to sidestep any problems that may crop up from 3rd party vendors moving things around or whatnot. Rescan and see if that fixes it.
  8. Yes, if one already has the link. But, if someone just goes to www.bandlab.com, there's no way to get to the Cakewalk.
  9. I was going to send a link to a friend so he could check out Cakewalk. But, as the title says, I don't see Cakewalk mentioned anywhere on the Bandlab website. Is there trouble in paradise?
  10. I'm guessing here, but have you tried setting it up so it only plays one note at a time?
