    Not sure where to put this...

    ...so here it is! I'm thinking about starting a simple set of orchestration tutorials, this is the first one...just a quickie Creating Simple String Arrangements Let me know what you think! Bill

    Lost connection to MIDI keyboard

    I have to delete TTSSEQ.ini every time I open Cakewalk(or Sonar Platinum for that matter). This started happening after one of the last few Sonar updates...probably a Win10 "fix" that screws with my Win 7 Ultimate system. I'm used to it now but it's still annoying. Bill

    New Workstation..thoughts on new spec?

    Personally I'd double the size of the SSD if not get a 1TB one...the prices have really come down. Also, if you do a lot of orchestral or complicted projects with a lot of sample libraries bump your ram to 24gb, otherwise 16 is fine! And you want a third drive as well...SSD for Windows and programs, plugins, etc., 2nd drive for sample libraries, 3rd drive will be your audio drive...save your projects here. Also start thinking about using more than one monitor...one for the console, one for tracks, and a third for other programs, plugin GUIs, browser, etc. I have 3 monitors right now...28" main, 32" above that, and a 22" to the right...waiting for delivery of a 10' dvi cable so I can hook up another 22" to the right of my keyboards to view better while recording my keys.

    Cakewalk Bundle files

    A friendly suggestion, switch from using bundle files and just .rar your project folder...you can even use a nifty little program call Quickpar- Quickpar Quickpar allows you to create repair files so if your files become damaged you can fix them easily. Too many people have had trouble opening older bundles...and todays bundles become older bundles tomorrow Even broken .rar files can be partially opened, damaged bundles are toast! Bill

    CW update just deleted my basic template!

    I don't use templates...I opened a simple project and set it up the way I liked, saved the Lens as Default, then saved the project as Default in a location folder called Default. Now I open the Default project, then do a Save As with a new name and location. Never a problem! Bill

    Anyone using more than one DAW?

    I've slowly started learning Samplitude and recently I'm spending a lot of time in Cubase Pro 10. The only other DAW I'll give a try one of these days is Pro Tools...I'm old school...I play 3 instruments so no loop stuff and I don't care for cartoon interfaces(still using BFD2 ). Bill

    First Cubase Project and...

    Now that you mention it I'm not sure...I like challenges so I picked up Cubase and started a project based on everything I have learned in Sonar since 8.0. I also started a project in Samplitude...but years of familiarity with Sonar makes me less likely to change...the whole "old dog" thing going on ;) I'm trying to learn other software so I can work with others...looking to start an internet progrock recording group of some sort and I want to be flexible. Generally I write and record in Sonar(though it's now strictly using Cakewalk!), mix with Harrison Mixbus 32C, and master in Sony Sound Forge( yup, I'm using version 11.0 I bought from Sony :) I've gotten further with the piece but I'll save that for elsewhere.

    Cubase 30 Year Anniversary Sale

    I started a new project in Cubase yesterday...so far no headscratchers I upgraded to Padshop Pro for 9.99 as well. So far the only "bug" has been the way the plugin manager sorted some of my plugins and for some reason I don't have the darker Padshop Pro GUI. Other than learning a bit on the go it's going painlessly, I'm liking it so far! Bill
