    ASIO Question

    That depends on your audio I/F. Many have multiple outputs including headphones. If your HW doesn't have controls you should be able to select devices like you do with WASAPI.

    It could be your settings in Cakewalk. If you're using the on board sound chip then go to Edit -> Preferences. Under Audio select Playback and Recording, for Driver Mode try WASAPI Exclusive. Under Audio select Devices and you should see options under the Output Drivers section. If headphones is selected there and they are not working it will be the laptop setup. You'll need to go to Sound in the Control Panel.

    For midi in/out usb is probably the quickest. For audio, if you have any concern for latency, you probably want ASIO drivers which usually means an audio I/F.
  4. You can try the Deals subforum under Coffee House (part of these forums). Usually when there is an NI sale there will be discussions about various upgrade paths.
  5. Sure you tell me not to do it, but now that I know it's different I have to check it out!
  6. Oh no. I like the Outer Space and have the Boss RE-20 (Space Echo) on my pedal board. I may have to check it out.
  7. Licensed plugins need to be licensed. It depends on the plugin. Some allow use on multiple computers as long as only one computer is used at a time. Some only have a single license. Some have license managers - waves, ni, ikm, xln or use a 3rd party license manager like iLok. You have to check with each developer. You can start by looking at your programs in the start menu. Click start and scroll thru the programs and expand any plugins - if you have ni or ikm and expand them you'll see that ni has Native Access and ikm has an Authorization Manager. It should also be clear when you install the plugins on your new machine. Have fun.
  8. These days I use a drum vst, but many years ago I used samplers. Many drum vsts let you load your own samples. Many samplers are designed to be used with drum samples, but even if not, you should be able to load a sample per key. If you do that you probably want to follow a standard midi drum map.
  9. What it says 🙂 If you want to use an external fx unit. You should should be able to add it to the bin.
  10. Is the upgrade working with CbB? I saw some posts that there were problems.
  11. $39, now I have pro on my laptop as well 🙂
  12. It's easier to control updates. I have pro on my DAW and it notifies me when updates are available. On my laptop I say I have a metered connection so it won't download on it's own, but I have to remember to update.
  13. I haven't used it, but in the track fx right click and select Insert External Insert. It has send, return, and delay compensation parameters.
