  1. For people who see this thread since I figured things out yesterday after the first reply, interested in any info re-above copy/paste.... (WASA(B)/(P)I)focus notwithstanding!! as I'm interested in understanding the kinds of things you have to do when you get the "Audio Engine Dropout" message w/the different numbers....
  2. Thx for posting the link,have checked it out already along w/many others by Mike Enjo who's one of my go-to people for everything;is the stuff I'm focusing on here shown @ a given time in the video?Been a while since I've seen it...
  3. Bdickens- Excuse me man!!Actually was out at the local Smart and Final earlier and was checking dry roasted edamame which I usually get,the only kind they had was WASABI...hence the confusion..my bad...but appreciate you posting and if you have anything relevant i.e.in terms of the results of the WASAPI I posted above etc,be interested man as TBCH just familiarizing myself w/this stuff..
  4. All good-this worked but led to some audio engine dropout problems-buffer size was @ max so couldn't increase it re -#1> Audio processing took longer than the buffers allotted time slice. Increase the Buffer Size value in Edit > Preferences > Audio - Driver Settings. however did a Wave Profiler WASABI scan- ==== High Definition Audio Device (0 in, 1 out) ==== 8000 Hz: not available 11025 Hz: not available 22050 Hz: not available 44100 Hz: Channels 1,2 -- Bits 16,24,24(4 bytes),32 -- OK 48000 Hz: Channels 1,2 -- Bits 16,24,24(4 bytes),32 -- OK 88200 Hz: Channels 1,2 -- Bits 16,24,24(4 bytes),32 -- OK 96000 Hz: Channels 1,2 -- Bits 16,24,24(4 bytes),32 -- OK 176400 Hz: not available 192000 Hz: Channels 1,2 -- Bits 16,24,24(4 bytes),32 -- OK 352800 Hz: not available 384000 Hz: not available which seems to have fixed the problem... Any continued feedback about everything in this thread appreciated.....
  5. Hey Kurre!! Good to see you're still actively involved over here-again appreciate your replies on my threads last year asking about Melodyne/Jamstix4-fortunately got my skill set together w/both.... Thx for the info above-thought that was what what was going on..will check this out a little later on once I get back to things..... Glad to know I can add you to the list of "computer-focused stuff"experts over here I can check things with....like I mentioned above,been focusing on this stuff in the context of file storage.....
  6. Back over here looking for some feedback about something new but beforehand wanted to thank everyone again who took the time to help me figure things out relating to storage/moving Project Files a few weeks back;as I posted then,great to know there's a supportive knowledgeable community of Cakewalk experts over here to check things with.... Anyways- Installed Arturia Analog ab Lite a couple of weeks ago and been focusing in on it,getting a sense of what's what...initially I was playing some of the default Media Browser files through it,drag-dropping them to a track etcetc,but found a keyboard-focused sample pack I figured would give me a better idea of what the different instruments/presets sounded like.... First time I've gotten into this and being new to the computer OS-specific stuff involved,decided to post this thread instead of looking around online for the info..know I've seen the steps involved explained in one of the many softsynth-focused tutorials I've studied and have the link to saved in one of my email folders but since I wasn't sure which one..... Just took a look at the folder in my Downloads,saw that they're wav.files except for one subfolder w/MIDI files and was glad to see that as luck would have it they're all Cakewalk MIDI so I'm sure things will be compatible.... Checking Downloads in the Media Browser I didn't see them listed,only a few of the Downloads folders were there(fortunately, as I have a lot of them!!)....also "Extract"kept flashing when I checked the samples folder itself.... Wasn't sure how to proceed,whether extracting things is necessary,and where to move the folder/what to do(Preferences settings?)to get them up and active in the Media Browser....rather than trying some of the options that came to mind(i.e.copying the folder to the Music folder or another location instead of it's current Downloads location)figured checking w/people over here would be a better choice.... Update-checked the manual and realized all I had to do was select the "Show all files and folders" Media Browser option-selected it and saw it the folder,clicked on it and saw it there by itself OK right away...but still glad I set up this thread as getting some ideas about all this stuff(Analog Lab Lite/Media Browser etc)from people for whom dealing w/things like this is a no-brainer is still something I'm interested in.... Actually still wondering if there's a way to get the parent folder to same location as the other similar folders-Audio Library/MIDI Groove Clips/PTN MIDI Files/Sample Content(this would probably be where it would go I'm thinking)that show up in the dropdown menu when you click the arrow on the right there in the Media Browser instead of where it is now(part of Downloads still).... Continuing-saw this in the Reference Guide- "Save Content Location Preset . Save the current folder as a Content Location preset. By default, the folder name is used as the preset name, but you can type any desired name before you click the Save Content Location Preset button." Clicked on the square icon at the top right where you do this,saw that it's now is on the list referred to in the previous paragraph but when I clicked on it,instead of opening I got the pop-up- "The selected content location referenced missing files-C/User/Owner/Downloads/(folder name)-zip." Double-checked/re-opened the folder itself in the Media Browser,verified all the subfolders were there..is the pop-up related to what I was asking about earlier above re-"Extract"....???
  7. Hey Shane _B!! Appreciate you posting here man,was hoping this was still an active thread...looking forward to getting feedback/tips about using it from everyone....actually going through the manual right now and finding info about some of the stuff I was noticing from messing around w/it yesterday using both the browser Media files as well as the built-in patterns/Song builder.... BTW just got a PM about the OP,my condolences....
  8. Just happened to find this thread and was glad to see some of the people who've gone out of their way to help me figure things out over here involved in the discussion(David Baay/Scook).... Started working w/Jamstix 4 free version over the last few days,just familiarizing myself w/it so it's great to find out you guys are also using it/familiar w/the ins-and-outs of things.....
  9. Robert/John/Treesha- Good to see you guys continuing to post over here...agree 100% w/what you said Robert... John,along w/checking out that video this AM which really made everything very easy to conceptualize.went over your last reply above and was focusing on the stuff relating to cloud storage as this is also something I'm looking into in this context...would be interested in more re- Treesha- Just saw your post above once I posted this so decided to edit it to thank you again for this kind of info,really like the focus on backups you're stressing and see the logic here now as well....
  10. I'm thinking you're seconding my idea of moving the Project folder from the C drive to external storage to free up my laptop storage and then back as needed....I'm less focused on the "back-up" aspects of things here and more on the idea of moving it out of the C drive sucessfully,although,along the lines of Treesha's approach to having backups,I'm planning on making a copy of the Project folder in the external storage and leaving it there each time I move the original back to the C drive Cakewalk Projects folder to start working on it again,then repeating this process so in addition to the default Auto-Save copy I'll also have a complete copy of the Project file as a back-up in external storage,and repeating this process each time I finish work on the Project,i.e.deleting the previous copy in the external storage and replacing it w/a copy of the current version of the Project.... Also much thanks for the info about how things work in terms of plugins/storage...
  11. Scook- Was glad to see the notification that you just replied here to what I'm asking about....and clarified exactly the stuff I needed to understand... Based on- -would you suggest the approach of keeping the C drive Cakewalk Projects folder in it's current location and just moving individual projects themselves to the external storage then back to the main Cakewalk Projects folder itself to work on? IOW the C drive Cakewalk Projects folder would be functioning as a kind of default "container" Cakewalk knows to find a project in and can be used seamlessly to do things vs.trying to open the Project from external storage? I like the idea of this process re- as,being new to using various third-party plugins/VSTi's etcetc I'd prefer to keep things in as intact a form as possible so Cakewalk will re-open a saved Project in the same state as it was in when it was saved,with all the plugins/settings parameters etc as is vs.getting involved in any computer OS-specific processes that might inadvertently affect this kind of stuff..... Again scook man really appreciate your continued feedback over here as,although on Fri.when first posted the thread I was more or less "in the dark"about this stuff,now thanks to you,Treesha,John,Robert,and Will I'm starting to have a much better sense of things....
  12. Robert- Thanks for the continued info man... Here's a few of the things you mentioned I'd appreciate clarification about- With this second one,does it follow that using the same PC,just focusing on moving the Project Folder for a given project from it's default C drive Cakewalk Project Files location to external storage,the freezing tracks process won't be needed and things will happen automatically once the Project is reopened in the DAW,i.e.everything will be the same as far as "plugin moves and VSTi information"?
  13. -instead of getting involved in copying each of the subfolders within the Project folder?Then will I be able to open the main Project folder from the external storage or have Cakewalk do this automatically as if it was going to the usual C drive Cakewalk Projets location,or does this require some further action using Preferences?...i.e.I'm understanding Cakewalk recognizes/opens a cwp.right away from Teesha's post the ther day descibing her processes,what about the main Project Folder itself?Does this work along the lines of a .bun file as Robert and others have described?
  14. -would I just copy the Main Project folder itself-
  15. John- Really appreciate you making the tutorial;just checked it out and definitely have a much more complete understanding of your approach as described now.... Here's what I'm wondering-supposing that I want to just move a given Project from the C drive-Cakewalk Projects folder to external storage instead of the complete Cakewalk Projects main folder w/all the individual Projects,i.e-
