    What happens to your issues if you test the bypassing of all effects?  To test this,  hit the letter 'E' on your computer keyboard, and that is a shortcut key to disengage (bypass) any of the effects loaded into the project.  After doing this, please play your 32-bit plugins again, and see if the issues disappear when the effects are bypassed.  Post back here with the results of that test.

    Don't worry - after completing your test, simply hit 'E' again to again process your effects.  ('E' just toggles effects processing on/off).

    Also, please list some info on your computer's specs and settings - desktop/laptop, memory, audio interface make/model, project sample rate, project audio Driver Mode (ASIO?, WASAPI?)

    Disabling the effects didn't fix the glitches. 

    I'm using a laptop, 1.8GHz, 8GB RAM.

    I'm also using an Scarlett 18i20 3rd gen in ASIO Mode.

    The project is in 48kHz and 24bits.


    Thank you for answering!

    Are you able to find 64bit versions of the problematic 32bit plugins.  Are you able to give Jbridge a try?


    Personally, I have banished all 32bit plugins from my PC and only use 64bit plugins.

    Most of them dont have a 64bits version, and I can't afford Jbridge, I dont even have a credit card so thats why almost all my software is free.

    It's weird because a few updates before, they were all working just fine.

  3. Hi guys.

    I've been using some 32 bits vst's  on cakewalk, and I've had a great experience. But just today after several months not using them, I opened Cakewalk and loaded a few vsts, and I had audio glitches with every 32 bits vst I used and everytime I played a note. This is the first time I've experienced this issue. 

    I also tried with different buffer sizes and the glitches were less frequent with a bigger buffer, but still appeared.

    Any recommendation? 

    Thanks in advance!

    Some of this post is specific to the OP's case (like the starting tempo), but the steps are generally applicable to aligning a timeline to existing audio or MIDI. In your case, you can stop at "When it sounds good throughout":


    Thank you! I will check it out!

    You can tap out in 1/8th notes. then use the formula based, tempo=

    For example, if your BPM is set to 150 and you tap out 1/8th notes, divide that number by 2 = 75 BPM.

    Thanks! But yeah, I know there are ways to get the tempo I need. But would be great to see an improvement in this subject, and make cakewalk more intuitive. 

  6. I just posted another topic and learnt that Cakewalk only accepts beats as "quarter notes" when you adjust the bpm of a song.

    It would be great if you could tap certain tempos in eights.

    For example, if you're listening an 6/8 time signature song, and want to know the bpm, in Cakewalk you should tap in quarters, meaning you have to press space bar in the 1-3-5 eights,  which can be pretty hard in certain situations, or with more complex time signatures or songs.

    I would love to see a feature that could give you more rhythmical versatility.

    In Cakewalk, a 'beat' is always a quarter note. A 6/8 measure is only 3 beats long. The metrome will click on 8ths, but the tempo is quarters/minute, and you can't tap a tempo in 8ths.

    Three simple ways to match the tempo are:

    1. Import the audio, and use Set Measure/Beat at Now (Shift+M) to tell CbB where the bar lines fall.


    2a. Disable Stop at Project End so that the transport can run with no content in the project. 

    2b. Hit spacebar, and count out 4 measures as you listen to the recording.

    2c. Hit spacebar again to stop the transposrt on 5:01, and set that measure and beat with Shift+M.


    3. Import the audio and drag-drop the clip on the timeline, and let Melodyne extract the tempo.

    This last option may not work well with a 6/8 tempo. Melodyne may read it as 3/4, and sometimes it will set a double-time tempo even when it gets the beat value right. Higher versions of Melodyne can be tweaked to address this, but the Essentials demo that can be installed from Bandlab Assitant doesn't have those features.

    If you're just looking for an approximate match to re-record everything from scratch, option 2 is the easiestl (easier to do than to describe). This is what I often use to match a new project to something I've been improvising, and am ready to record. Or, since I record mostly MIDI, I'll record without a click, and set the project to the MIDI with Set Measure/Beat at Now, and then flatten any tempo variation that I don't want to keep - also easier to do than to describe in detail.

    I can point you to a previous post if you're interested in that approach.




    You can make the metronome click on 8th notes, 

    Thank you for your answer!

    I would like to know more, so if you could show me that previous post, would be great!

  8. Hi guys.

    I just started a Project where the time signature is 6/8, so I wanted to listen to an old recording of a song and tap the Tempo.

    It never matched the recording tempo, so I realized that every "tap" I was making was a quarter note, not and eight as I would think if I'm working with this time signature.

    Then, my question is if there's a way to make Cakewalk match the time signature I'm using with the Tap Tempo function automatically.

    I mean, if I use, lets say an 4/8 I would want to tap 4 eight notes and Cakewalk to recognize that every 4 beats theres an accented click.

    Or if there's a project where the tempo is 3/4, I want Cakewalk to recognize that when I'm taping, there are 3 beats per measure and one is accented. 

    Finally, if there's no way to achieve this automatically. Is there a manual way to do this?


    Greetings and Thanks in advance!

    I get that a lot with this and previous builds and when it happens I usually hit play then stop (assuming the now time is just before the clip). This action seems to make the notes display in melodyne.

    The previous update fixed this behaviour, but with this 2019.12 update I'm getting it again.

  10. Hi guys.

    I'm trying to use Cakewalk while I'm listening some musical examples in another softwares(Windows Media Player, Google Chrome, etc), but everytime I open CbB the rest of Windows Audio is disabled.

    How can I fix this issue?

  11. Hi guys. I was wondering if there's a way to flatten comp in a single track. I mean, I'm working on the takes of the first  verse of a song, and when I'm done, I flatten comp that verse and Cakewalk creates a "comp track". Then I start working on the chorus and when I click "flatten comp" it creates another comp track. I know that one solution could be working the whole song and then click "flatten comp" but I'm a little obsessive so I tend to fix some mistakes while I'm recording.

    Thanks in advance.
