  1. Hey SomeGuy, If you want to be "anonymous", then don't use software offered for "free". It's pretty simple. Free is not free. If you don't want to give up your contact info (or whatever is being asked for in any particular case), then don't, and use software that doesn't require it to use it. Simple. There are non-free options out there that you can use instead and then you don't have to worry about it. You have it right, "data is currency". There is no free ride. You don't have to use Cakewalk by Bandlab. True. And if you don't use their FREE DAW, you don't have to wonder. It is your computer, not theirs. If their FREE software is not on your computer, there is nothing to wonder about. Not everything is a conspiracy.
  2. I still use my frontier designs tranzport for drums and vocals and it still works. It technically isn't supported in windows 10, but running the setup.in compatibility more allows it to install and it works, though it doesn't support the pause key specifically. I see a few on eBay right now for about $40. Still don't understand why this was discontinued.
  3. After getting my head back around cakewalk after a long Absence to studio one, I am seriously considering coming back for my next song and seeing how things feel now. Between the last update and this one, there are a lot of things that appeal to me.
  4. Hey everyone. I just completed this recording of Dishwalla's Angels or Devils from the Opaline album. While I didn't record this with Cakewalk, I did use something I've seen discussed around here - the Softube Console 1. It was a huge success in my opinion. In fact, I'm thinking that it pretty much evens up the "sound" between the two DAWs and I think I'll probably do my next song back over in in Cakewalk. It was just so easy to mix with this thing and it works equivalently in both programs. I hope you will take a listen and read over the recording notes here: https://www.blades.technology/music/songs/angels-or-devils-dishwalla-cover
  5. You know, it used to be that you had to create a cakewalk sonar account to use the PAID subscription and had a different price of software with a different logo on it to get your updates. Now it's free and still in business, those are the two primary differences. I don't use cakewalk like I once did (now more in the paid studio one group) but I fail to see it understand why people have a problem with this model. You know there are other programs out there both free and paid. If you hate the idea of having to create an account THAT bad, why are you still here?
  6. Hey bitflipper...I have a frontier transport that works in windows 10. Maybe I could help you get yours going? Let me know if you want an assist. It mostly has to do with allowing unsigned drivers, which is fine if you trust the device. The device isn't supported any more and lacks some features like the pause button working in the "new" way (like 2009 new I think).
  7. Ha! Yeah - I have a whole drumkit behind me, so space is hardly a concern in this case. I have my shakers, tamborine, and such laying on the floor under the "floor tom". My Coffee/beer (time-of-day dependant) still sits nicely just to the right of the Faderport 8->Console 1. And, as you can see in the video behind me, I just "sheetrocked" my door closed in prep for other changes in my room, one of which will be a re-arrangement from corner desk to flat on the wall desk that I'm actually going to attach as "shelves" to the wall, freeing up space and making my area to keep various beverages larger! Thanks for the comment.
  8. Hey all. I recently got a Softube Console 1 and added to to my equipment collection. I have been spending some time getting accustomed to using it and figuring it out. In this process, I've out together a blog post with a Top 5 reasons to buy one. While the video contains Studio One as the example DAW, I have also put it in Cakewalk and it works the exact same way, so what I show here can work in either DAW. Want to check it out? I'd appreciate a look. Maybe it will help you decide to add one to your equipment list as well! https://www.blades.technology/music/daws-sonar-and-studio-one/5-reasons-to-get-a-console-1
  9. @Jaime Ramírez I am using the default tungsten theme. @Jon Sasor windows 10 pro 1903 - 4unning on an Asus mb with an Nvidia gtx960 (Asus strix if that helps) Need any other specs?
  10. I can verify the aim assist issue here as well. Don't have a recipe. Happened on a blank project template, so nothing fancy.
  11. @msmcleod next chance I have to check this I will . Again, I am not really sure why I care anymore about it, but there was something I preferred about the workflow and if now it can work like comping or layers depending on how I want to work, this could matter to me. I am still struggling coming back to cakewalk, having gotten pretty comfortable with studio one and having the 4.5 pro version, but there are things about cw that I miss, like sound on sound recording, ability to set different punch and loop regions, etc. There are a lot of things in studio one too that I prefer, like more complete integration with faderport 8 and presonus sound card, and many other things. Each has its strengths. Thanks for the info.
  12. So I guess what I want to know on the lanes is "can one lane of audio overlap another and have both heard" just like separate tracks or are overlapping regions still treated as "one or the other plays"? Not a big deal really either way, just trying to understand what is different than just the comping was. I can hardly remember why I cared that much about layers vs tracks in folders anyway!
  13. Trying to understand the comp changes. I honestly haven't been super involved in the comping since layers went away (long ago). I actually looked at this update specifically because of the changes here with the intention of creating a quick screencast video. But in my noodling around with things, I can't see how "assembling takes" differs from previous methods, and therefore couldn't create any kind of tutorial, as I couldn't really tell what was happening that was any different from before. I looked at the doc updates and still don't understand. Any guidance here?
  14. Fastbikerboy and I were among a few around here years ago sharing bcf2000 usage videos. He then went on to do a bunch of training videos I think. Haven't heard from him in a long time. Videos on his youtube channel are 6+ years old. Maybe he moved on to another daw, another hobby, or simply doesn't have time as was the case for me for quite some time where now I have been MAKING more time for it. Hope he is ok.
  15. If you are going to make a whole new copy of the project folder, why even bother with the save as or save copy as features? Why not just copy over the whole folder and pick one to edit and then eliminate the other when done. I am all for backups but wonder what the point of the save as would be except for yet another copy, possibly leading to more confusion.
