  1. I've installed CWBB onto a new machine. How do I move all my preferences in order to essentially clone my CW setup onto the new machine? I have moved everything from the Core folder, but, for example, I don't see my Workspaces in the new install.
  2. Where does anyone go with specific questions about ARA integration issues? I have reached out to Support here with Cakewalk, who recommended talking to Steinberg (for SpectraLayers) and when I reach out to them, they suggest reaching out to Cakewalk. Who knows how ARA works?? Specifically: I am having some issues using Steinberg's SpectraLayers Pro 9 within Cakewalk in its Region FX/ARA integration capacity. I have written in before seeking how to get the SpectraLayers keyboard shortcuts to work when editing within CW, but have had no success. However, my main and current issue (and far more functionally important) is how to get layers from within SL to populate within the CW track structure. An example of how this supposed to work can be seen in the Steinberg tutorial video here (at the 4:18 mark) It shows the user dragging and dropping layers that have been established within SpectraLayers ARA editor to separate track lanes in the DAW. When attempting to do this in Cakewalk, nothing happens. No layer is imported (as can be seen in this video - https://imgur.com/a/ZUfhOSh ) In the case of the YouTube video, the DAW is Steinberg's Cubase, I know, but ARA integration is supposed to work the same or similarly in whatever DAW has ARA capabilities, so I understand. Is this not so? I have contacted Steinberg already and they said to contact Cakewalk Support, which I have done before with no luck, nevertheless I have sent in another ticket there, but I'm asking here as well. How can I get this "import layers" functionality in CW??
  3. This would seem to be the case. I just did a test project adding Melodyne as a Region/ARA effect (which is all I ever do with it, i.e. not in the FX bin) and making some edits in it while watching both folders. the empty \Melodyne\Transfers folder within the CW project folder was created when opening the project next time. I closed the project, deleted the \Melodyne folder structure there, re-opened the project, and the folder \Melodyne\Transfers was created, empty, again. Doing this same process with adding Melodyne in the FX bin (just to test) and then "reading" the clip with Melodyne's "Transfer" button (which is necessary for the effect) created the \Melodyne\Transfers folder within CW's project folder structure, but with a transfers file for the clip in the folder. Deleting this file and re-opening the project required reading the clip with the Transfer button again within Melodyne in the FX bin for the effect to come into play. And, as far as the \Celemony\Separations folder (in \My Documents or wherever) goes, the following is indeed true This is exactly what happens. I have no issues with any of this; just adding information for general interest.
  4. For what it's worth, information-wise, I use Melodyne quite a bit, stand-alone and ARA in CW. Every project that I've used with Melodyne/ARA in CW has this \Melodyne\Transfers folder in the CW project folder file, and every one of them is empty. The \Separations folder located in \My Documents\Celemony (or wherever determined from within Melodyne Preferences) is the folder with all the pertinent data in it, it would appear. And this folder can grow quite large.
  5. Perhaps with Melodyne - I don't have an issue with Melodyne. For me CTRL-Z works there. However, with SpectraLayers no edits are recreated with a Redo after an Undo. It's a total loss. David's suggestion of a Clear Undo history before editing in SL is a fair safeguard. AND in addition, I've found that re-assigning the Undo and Redo shortcuts within SpectraLayers (for example, to SHIFT-Z and SHIFT-Y) is a fair workaround. In this case, the re-assigned shortcuts do get priority from within the ARA plugin.
  6. I don't have this problem with Melodyne in ARA. For example, CTRL-Z operates as an Undo in the Melodyne window and NOT the as Cakewalk Undo (i.e. NOT undoing the insertion of Melodyne as a Region Effect, as it does with SpectraLayers).
  7. This is actually, still, quite a major issue. As mentioned in my examples above Wow! Try having completed, say, 30 or so painstaking, detailed edits in SpectraLayers via ARA, and then mess one up and instinctively hit CTRL-Z by decades long established habit (no matter HOW much I've tried to train myself against using it with this issue), and BAM! the SpectraLayers Region Effect and therefore all my edits within it are instantly gone with no way to retrieve them! Doing a Redo simply adds SL as region effect again, but with an initial blank slate state. This happens to me, unfortunately, all too often. Is there any hope of upticking this in the ARA development arena, perhaps?
  8. I did, indeed, misunderstand. Thanks for clarifying! So, how/where are we looking in Process Explorer to see this thread priority reading? AND more pertinently for us Focusrite folks, this MMCSS issue (the inability to take advantage of the setting) is a Cakewalk dead-end for now until Focusrite makes the necessary changes. Do I understand that right?
  9. So, does this mean that for those of us with Focusrite interfaces/drivers there is no benefit, for now, in enabling this new MMCSS setting in CW? AND as to your comment on using Process Explorer, is this to suggest that setting the priority for Cakewalk there should have an effect within CW? When I do so (for example I choose realtime: 24 within Process Explorer - as shown in attached screenshot), and with MMCSS enabled or not in Settings in CW, the label shown when hovering over the Performance Module does not change/still shows Time Critical (15). Also, so much thanks for the continued improvements!
  10. You guys seem to be having your own discussion not necessarily related to the OP's issue. That being me, I will re-iterate that the issue as shown in the original video only occurred once in a single session and has not reoccurred so perhaps is not entirely relevant, for what that's worth. This remaining issue that this post is about is better shown in this, however crappy, video taken with phone. (When trying to capture with ScreenToGIF the resulting video does not show the extraneous lines for some reason. seen here - https://imgur.com/kgFcWFF This discussion as it has developed, while perhaps providing fodder for some of your own personal issues and opinions, does not however provide me with any convincing proof that what you discuss necessarily has anything to do with my problem as presented here. It's nice to know that folks are out there, tho! 😁
  11. I started having the issue, then updated my NVIDIA card but continue to have the issue. I believe the NVIDIA card is my onboard graphics card... It is a laptop, built by PCAudioLabs, and the NVIDIA card is the only adapter mentioned in the system. I am aware of no other, unless it is perhaps made available thru the BIOS...
  12. I do, as always, appreciate the feedback here. Thank you. But I feel like all this focusing on space, 'tho a worthy issue of discussion, is perhaps off-topic, as I see no evidence or definitive suggestions that this must be the situation I am suffering. I have followed advice to maintain at least %15 free on my main drive for years now with no adverse effects. Indeed, the drive has been at that capacity for a couple years now and this minor issue (I say minor unless someone can logically show it to be otherwise) began only last week. Only Windows and programs reside on the drive (SSD) in question. All data, projects, TEMP folders, scratch disk locations, and many plugins are on greater capacity auxiliary drives. Besides CW, I use Ableton, SpectraLayers, Sibelius, SoundForge, Premiere, all with running/following playback cursor lines as well as many other more intensive visual real-time display feedback. There are no issues anywhere with these applications, nor in Windows itself. Indeed, in Cakewalk it is only within the full PRV that this issue appears. The in line PRV, for example, does not exhibit this behavior with the Now Time line, nor is there evidence anywhere else within the CW environment of display or performance issues. I also run Latency Monitor regularly (and have recently) and it continues to show nothing but LOW green meter response. I do not believe there is cause to think that I am at hardware/system/capacity end of life scenario. I would certainly want more evidence or explanation to determine that hardware or drive capacity issues are likely to blame.
  13. I guess I'd want a second opinion, or some other indicator on the machine, in its performance, or anywhere else. Before a tear-down, hardware reconfigure,total upgrade, that is. But I do appreciate the first guess. Machine was actually serviced by PCAudio Labs one year ago.
  14. Not to belabor the point, Will, but none of the foundational specs have changed on a professional system that has not been suffering performance issues for the years of use in it's current state. This issue started a week ago. However, it doesn't effect my audio workflow except for a little minor awkward confusion while it is displaying, so I will assume no biggie here unless hearing or experiencing otherwise.
  15. ....For what it's worth, the issue exemplified in the video only happened once and has not reappeared. The trailing playback, but randomly spaced, Now Time Cursor lines continue and only happen in the full PRV, whatever the grid resolution - not in the inline PRV for example.
