  1. I'm using the same interface. I use it for everything audio - On board audio is disabled. I. set samplerate in Focusrite to 48000 2.Set samplerate in Windows audio settings to 48000 The only time on my system that samplerate gets changed back to 41000 is if I run Amplitube v4 in standalone mode. It defaults to 41000 and seems to stick with it. Amplitube v5 is fine. Steve
  2. According to Positive Grid you just need online access to activate Bias FX and from then on online access is not required to use the software as a plugin or standalone. However, I've experienced recent problems running Bias FX when internet access was down. The PG website has lots of users complaining about the same thing. There is speculation that Windows Update 2004 has affected licensing for Bias FX (and possibly some other products, according to one user) and you may have to re-activate. It slipped back into demo mode on my system while internet was down. I had to re-activate when internet came back up. Hopefully, that's a one off - we'll see. Steve
  3. External cd drive is a good option if you already have cd's containing the tracks you want to reference. Otherwise - 1. Buy the mp3 download or 2. Record the output from Spotify/Youtube with Audacity to create wav/mp3, Audacity is free and reveals a loopback driver option (on my system) that lets you record whatever audio is currently playing. Quality would plenty good enough for a reference track (for me anyhow). Steve
  4. Have you checked in Preferences:Metronome that things are set up correctly? If you are using the audio metronome it needs to have a valid output - either direct to interface out or to an available bus. So check that routing before going down the whole re-install palava. Presumably, midi metronome would need to have a valid midi device to output to. (not that I ever use that option) Steve
  5. Could be wrong but it looks like you might be recording the output from Kontact. That may well be set up to generate chords from single notes.
  6. Try unchecking "Suspend Audio Engine When Cakewalk Is Not In Focus". Also make sure sample rates in Cakewalk and Discord (Windows settings if that is browser based) are matching.
  7. Found it !! Click in the track name in the inspector panel. There's a menu. Who knew?
  8. Digging deeper ..... (I'm fairly sure that what I said originally was what I observed, however....) what I'm seeing now is that on a split synth track whichever track text box has been edited, that text box alone does not get updated by replace synth. This can lead to even more confusion visually (for me, anyway) . But the behaviour does at least seem to be consistent.
  9. Are you using more than 1 screen? If so, the UI for the vst maybe getting displayed on second screen but is hidden. Just a thought.
  10. I did a little digging on this. If the track is a simple instrument track then the text field does not get updated by "Replace synth" if it has been edited. However, if you are using split tracks for synths then text field for both tracks get updated regardless of whether they have been edited or not. I suspect this may be by design. Steve
  11. There is an active user forum at CoolSoft devoted to VirtualMidiSynth. Why dont you see if you can get some help there. Steve
  12. Thanks for posting this Jossy. Very helpful download. It seems my Project Templates folder and contents went missing in the last few days. My suspicion leans towards installing and then uninstalling CakewalkProject5 (.. it was late ... I was bored and feeling nostalgic) . Cant think of anything else I've done that could have had any impact on Cakewalk related content other than updating to latest version. Steve
  13. The settings in Audio preferences are slightly different between Sonar and Cakewalk BD. I seem to recall that ShareDriversWithOtherPrograms has the opposite effect than what you might have expected. I would try unchecking that option. You should also make sure that sample rate is consistent between Sonar/Cakewalk and windows. Any particular reason for using Sonar rather than Cakewalk Bandlab ?
  14. Some sampled options https://adammonroemusic.com/amuprightbass.html - only $15 https://shop.karoryfer.com/pages/free-meatbass https://shop.karoryfer.com/products/vengeful-bass
  15. Just to confirm that articulations are being ignored when using scrub in PRV. And yes it is frustrating. Hard to believe it's by design. Wasn't able to repro the issue with "now time" - that seemed to be working, or maybe I didn't do it right (or wrong). Steve
