  1. I have the "display muted takes in parent track" option enabled but I've also seen this strange behavior recently. My normal mute clip erases it instead.
  2. Hi User 905133, Sorry for the delayed reply. 1) I meant Piano View. I always think of that a MIDI view. 2) As I mentioned I like to work with the four workplace appearances I described above. My understanding is that I want to use workplaces rather than screen shots to achieve this. I never like to see combination of track and console at the same time or other combos. I actually am only trying go back to the basic appearance of Guitar Tracks Pro which is what it was first introduced me to Cakewalk many years ago. 3) The D shortcut key is new to me but interesting. I'm re-reading the documentation on all of this. Year ago once I had achieved my four basic screens I was happy. I don't remember how I achieved it but I believe I undocked the console, track, piano, bookmarks, and synth views and stretched them each the way I want to see them. Then Alt-1, Alt-2, Alt-3, etc... would get me the view I was interest in at the moment. Usually I'm just toggling back and forth between track and console views. Thanks.
  3. I tend to just use only 4 workspaces to get things done. I just want full screen track view or full screen console view with or without seeing muted channels. In both views I want the option to see the synth rack. In track view I want to be able to go to the MIDI view on any highlighted track(s). And that's about it. I need to see the markers also but not too often. I've tried various attempts over the years at achieving this with varying success. Maybe I should study the manual longer but I don't find the process intuitive. To get what I want with no surprises I currently undock each window, resize them the way I want to almost full screen under the main menus, and then save that workspace. Then I can use shortcut keys to flip back and forth and see what I want the way I want as I work. But I always seem to get unwanted surprises later for whatever reason. Maybe my cat stepped on the '2' key and brought up an old screenset or something. I feel like what I want is pretty simple, and maybe I'm not doing it correctly, but there's many times where the interface has later changed to something I didn't expect and it distracts me from the actual recording process. I anyone has any suggestions on how I can gracefully achieve what I mentioned in paragraph one I'd appreciate hearing them.
  4. Hi marlowg01, I installed FlexASIO last week and then uninstalled it after being put off by the configuration file requirements. I tried it again today and it seems to work fine with the defaults settings (i.e., no configuration file required). They mention that it's easier configuring with flipswitchingmonkey's FlexASIO GUI which I haven't tried yet. I now need to test Cakewalk with Zoom to see if someone can here my DAW correctly. The Zoom audio test seemed to work in Settings. Thanks.
  5. Hi marlowg01, I'm trying to use Cakewalk with a Zoom session with ASIO as the driver setting in Cakewalk. I also occasionally want to video tape Cakewalk using Screepresso and record the audio correctly (that app has worked with WASAPI Shared ). Thanks.

  7. In answer to my own question above I would recommend people look at the video at their download site. It's imperative to download and install both patches and do it correctly. The video is a bit lengthy but you learn what's needed. The guys kind of funny also. To summarize what you need to do, download and install the ASIO utility, and also download and copy both the 32 bit (even if you're using a 64 bit system) and 64 bit versions of the patch to: Run both versions of the patch utility in that folder then copy and run the 64 bit version of that patch in the x64 folder one level down. That should apply the patches so that it doesn't think it's an unregistered copy anymore. The dropout I described above is a 'feature' for unregistered users. You can look at the About Box and see that your version is now patched in the upper left section of the about window. Simply start the utility and choose your audio device and you should be all set. But... I did the above today and it worked fine with my Windows 10 machine. When I did the exact same procedure on my older Win 7 machine I now get the following message in Cakewalk: If anyone knows the reason for this or the solution to fixing this problem please let me know. My current project has a 44.1/24 bit rate. Could that be the problem?
  8. It's a bit time consuming to un-check so many boxes. I was hoping there was a simpler way to just turn ASIO utility on or off or at least use the Windows Task Manager to kill the service. While I've got you on the phone, I have tried it on both my older Win 7 machine (slow but decent) and my newer Win 10 machine (very, very fast CPU with 3 SSD drives) and both appear to have the audio drop out from time to time just playing my usual song in Cakewalk. This is just an observation before even introducing a Zoom session into the equation. Are there any latency issues I should be addressing when using this utility? Other settings to consider? Things work fine with this song using the normal ASIO drivers in Cakewalk. The problem seems to start when I re-route ASIO through this utility. Thanks.
  9. I often record several lead vocal tracks on one day and then re-record them again on a later date. The later vocal levels are usually not too far from the first ones but I want to make the volume levels as close as possible when I'm done before I begin to comp them. Years ago I used to automatically normalize all the tracks with Cakewalk's 'Default' setting but in recent years I've just comped the vocals as is and made minor gain adjustments with split clips later. My question is what's the best method for taking many vocals tracks in Cakewalk and quickly getting the levels to a reasonably equal level? Or is that a bad idea for some reason? Do most people normalize before comping or split/gain adjust tracks like I've been doing recently or something else entirely? I'm just looking for suggestions for a convenient fast workflow method for this process. Thanks. Happy New Year.
  10. I installed ASIO Link Pro today and it seems to be working okay (I can still hear my audio using their driver) although I haven't tested it yet with Zoom which is why I originally installed it. It's now the Audio Driver in Cakewalk and my usual ASIO option is grayed out. I don't see an exit or disable option in their utility to turn it on or off. I only want to use it when I use Zoom and would like to only have it take over as my Audio Driver in Cakewalk when I want it to. I can uninstall it of course but am i missing something easy here?
  11. I just tried to do my first Zoom meeting with Cakewalk involved and Zoom worked fine except for playing back Cakewalk audio. I'm using my old Windows 7 machine with a PreSonus AudioBox USB 96 box. I normally have my audio driver on ASIO but changed it to WASAPI Shared for the Zoom meeting. Then neither I nor the Zoom meeting person could hear Cakewalk. The guy knows Zoom pretty well but we still weren't able to configure Zoom and/or Cakewalk to hear audio the DAW. (We set Zoom to "Pro Audio users") I know there is an app like ASIO Link Pro I can try if necessary. The Zoom guy also suggested other 3rd party software options. My question is does anyone know why it didn't work today with WASAPI Shared? I used that before to record a ScreenPresso video with Cakewalk and it worked fine. I would rather avoid having to use 3rd party software if I can. Thanks.
  12. Whenever I go to export my audio the sample rate is 44.1 (correct) and the bit depth is 32 but I want it to be 24. Is there a way to save the 24 bit setting for future exports? Thanks.
  13. John Bradley, Obviously the key is important information but I'm trying to give Melodyne literally the correct reference it needs for my vocal note by note. This should be easy I would think. But again, I'm not a Melodyne expert. Thanks.
  14. I'm not a great vocalist but I try my best and with Waves Tune Real time or other plugins my vocals are passable. I always re-approach Melodyne every few months and learn a few new tricks. Ideally, I could just highlight the whole track, use their auto-tune macro and I'd be done. Alas, there are too many notes/blobs that move the wrong way for whatever reason and although I can go back and move them manually I find the whole process a bit tedious. It slows me down too much. I then go back to the convenience of Waves but don't like that it's not as scientific and I can't analyze the results. One new trick or piece of information I learned in this video is that Melodyne is supposed to reference other tracks in calculating what the correct pitch should be (0:45 seconds): I first tried creating Melodyne regions with my acoustic guitar track and my vocal track and didn't see anything very different on the vocal correction but that's understandable. How much could a strummed acoustic help determine a vocal lead's exact notes? Today I played my lead vocal note for note on the Cakewalk piano plugin and tried creating the regions again without the result I was hoping for. Even the solo piano wasn't really in tune with the song until I used the auto-tune macro on it. Now it's in tune perfectly. Lovely happy blobs! So now I've got a piano part that's absolutely on pitch and my shaky vocal that I would like to fix using that piano part as a stern reference. Is there any easy way to tell Melodyne to correct my vocal accordingly? Thanks.
  15. The saving with Workspaces seems to work fine. I don't see it saving the bindings with that checkbox unticked. It's okay because I only need this with my usual 4 workspaces. Thanks.
