  1. Looks like its probably a 32bit plugin. They sometimes work ok , if you're lucky but most here would recommend using 64bit plugins only. You should be able to find something free and 64bit if look around. Unpleasant noises, crackles etc are my experience with 32bit plugins on 64 bit Windows 10. Steve
  2. The beta drivers work so much better for me on my Focusrite 2i2. Didn't have the crashes you're having but had constant pops, crackles and glitches and not just in Cakewalk. All fine now.
  3. Why not disable the onboard sound and use the interface for everything. At least find out if that works. You may have specific reasons for not putting all sound thru your interface of course. But its what i do without any problems and maybe it will work for you. I cant really see any disadvantages but mines a pretty simple setup - Realtec device disabled and Focusrite 2i2 set as default - everything Hunky Dory. If i want to I can have Youtube videos, Windows Media Player and Cakewalk (Asio at low latency) live monitoring my rubbish guitar playing all happening at the same time - the family love it. Steve

    Bus versus Pan

    You can lose the stereo panning in the bus if you have an fx plugin on the bus that is mono.
  5. I had the same behaviour a while back, My recollection is that it was caused in my case by the vst version of the VSCO2 free orchestra plugin. I eventually came across some blurb on the download site that the vst version didn't work in Reaper. I'd recommend looking into recently downloaded or newly used plugins and disabling them one by one. You dont have to uninstall - just rename the .dll file until you find the culprit. It could be something else causing the problem but plugins seem to be the best bet and the easiest to track down problems with. Good luck Steve
  6. I kind of puzzled. I have onboard Realtek disabled. I have a Focusrite 2i2 hooked up and recognised by Windows 10 as my default sound device. I am able to have Cakewalk running and actually outputting sound ( Focusrite Asio driver selected) at the same time as playing a track in Windows Media Player and playing a Youtube video. Everything running smoothly and clearly, no conflicts or problem at all. This has always been the case for me. Previously I was using Sonar on an Maudio Delta 66 on Windows 7. Same result. The only time I couldn't run DAW and Windows sound concurrently was when I selected an option in Sonar Audio prefs that was called something like "Share audio drivers". Somewhat unintuitively (to me), this option made sound exclusive to DAW or other applications. I'm guessing this option has been renamed to "Suspend audio engine when Cakewalk not in focus" Have I just been very lucky to have the audio gods looking after me? Just seems odd that this doesn't work for everybody, especially those with the same interface. I'm not aware of having done anything smart to enable this to happen. Steve
  7. Re Sweetcase download difficulties. Got this from the devs:- Sorry for the frustration. The download links of the Sweetcase plugin are below: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mnqxf7fdeznt4ai/Sweetcase v1.0 64 bit Setup.rar?dl=0
  8. Yes, same for me. Some kind of error on their site I guess. Hope they get it resolved. If they've got a support page I'll try sending a message.
  9. I use gmail so I have a Google/Youtube account type thing so was able to get it that way.
  10. I love this free Fender Rhodes Suitcase emulation. https://www.noiseash.com/sweetcase-vintage-electric-piano/ Steve
  11. I've only briefly scratched the surface with Scaler 2 but from what I've seen and heard on the Scaler website it seems you can probably get what you're after from within Scaler itself, using the Performance features or maybe the Arpegiator. Have you tried either of those. Cakewalk captures that midi ok. Anyway, I gave a quick try to using Step Sequencer and you're right, it only captures the midi notes you play and not the output from Scaler. I've only got a few more days of the Scaler demo left and no resources to purchase so I wont be much help. Try the Scaler website for tips on getting what you want from the program. Steve
  12. Alt Tab cycles through open windows on my Win 10 system. Always has as far as I can recall. Control Tab doesnt seem to do anything within Cakewalk. I'm on latest 2020-04 build.
  13. Downloaded the 5.5 update today. Runs fine here. I tried loading all the free kits and running a few grooves - no crashes (so far). I'm up to date on CBd and Windows 10 Steve
  14. I use Audacity with Windows Wasapi loopback driver to record whatever is currently being played - Spotify, Internet browser etc. I can save from Audacity as mp3 or wav. Audacity is free software.
