  2. Open the Cakewalk Plug-in Manager and click OPTIONS to see, add, or remove folders from the VST scan paths.
  3. The one on the left is for the ProChannel. You can hide that using the Display button at the bottom. The one on the right appears to be just empty space.
  4. I don't know to specifically do what you want, but you can isolate velocity ranges for editing using Process>Find/Change. Here's how I would do it. Duplicate the MIDI track so I'd have a track for every synth I wanted to play a certain velocity range and use Find/Change to select the notes in the range I DON'T want playing in that track and delete them. When I was done I'd have multiple MIDI tracks containing only the notes within the range I want each synth to play, and then assign those MIDI tracks to the synths I want to play them. Not very elegant but it would work.
  5. Thanks much... appreciate it. I downloaded and installed it and it works fine. I did have a bit of confusion at first because I wasn't paying close attention and the default install location was C:\Program Files\VstPlugIns\Sweetcase , which is not scanned by my Cakewalk. Once I got that straightened out it was smooth sailing.
  6. Maybe they shut down on weekends. I'll try again Monday. To tell the truth it's something I probably wouldn't use much because I already have Lounge Lizard, which sounds great, and I don't use it much either. I just like having different synths just in case I want to try something different.
  7. I have both but when I click the YouTube icon another window opens for a second and vanishes, and then under the YouTube icon it says "Transport lost".
  8. Insert it as a Soft Synth with a MIDI Source Track. Enter notes using a Controller, Staff View or PRV in the MIDI track. That's how I did it and it works fine. I didn't try inserting it as an Instrument Track but I don't know why that wouldn't also work. I put the 64 bit .dll file in C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\VstPlugins . Virgin Choir, like all audio plug-ins, will only work in an Audio Track and you need a MIDI track to send data to the synth on the Audio Track. An Instrument Track is a combined MIDI and Audio track but you can't do as much with the MIDI in an Instrument track as you can with a MIDI track and Audio Track paired together. Try it both ways and see what works best for you.
  9. Looks cool. I wish I was able to download it.
  10. Open your Plug-in Manager and click Options. This gives you the list of the directories Cakewalk is scanning for plug-ins. Look in each directory to see if there are Sound Forge .dll files in them. Also, if you can see the Sound Forge .dll files in you plugin manager you can exclude them.
  11. Go to the beginning of the project. Pressing 'w' will do that. Then go to Project>Insert Time/Measure and select all the options you want to use. From the Reference Guide: Inserting time or measures into a project The Project > Insert Time/Measures command lets you insert any number of blank measures, ticks, seconds, or frames into a project. You can insert the blank measures (or other period of time) into all tracks or into one or more selected tracks. If you insert the blank time into the entire project, all events in each track—markers, meter and key settings, and tempo changes—are shifted automatically by default. If you insert the blank time into one or more selected tracks, only the events in those tracks are shifted by default. You can always choose which types of events should be shifted
  12. The onboard audio that comes with computers isn't best suited for using the kinds of plugins and synths we use in Cakewalk. If you aren't using a separate audio device then you are using the onboard audio in your computer. I don't know if that's your problem but I do recommend getting an ASIO capable audio interface (most are USB) and ditching the ASIO4All. I have read many things about ASIO4All over the years and none of it was good.
  13. Cakewalk for Bandlab is 64 bit. It won't even run on a 32 bit Windows installation. If your Eiderol plugin is 32 bit it has to be in a sub-directory of C:\Program Files (x86). If Eiderol doesn't install to its own directory then C:\Program Files (x86)\Cakewalk\VstPlugins is a good location. Are you using a dedicated audio interface or the onboard audio in your computer?
  14. Are you using a dedicated audio interface or the onboard audio in your computer? If you're using an interface, which one? The more information you can provide about your system the better.
  15. I downloaded the 64 bit version. There is no installer, just the .dll file Virgin Choir.dll. Put that in the appropriate directory and then scan for plugins using Cakewalk.
  16. Have you tried running the Toontrack Product Manager to make sure everything is installed and where it is supposed to be?
  17. One tool that you might find useful is a Spectrum Analyzer. It lets you see where the frequencies are 'thick' and 'thin' and can help you see what frequencies can be cut or boosted most effectively. I've used Voxengo's SPAN (free) and I really like its interface and the ability to click and drag the cursor horizontally through the window so you hear only the frequencies your cursor is over. https://www.voxengo.com/product/span/
  18. You can use your Juno sounds if you record them onto an audio track. MIDI is just data, no audio. I'm not sure if you can record both audio and MIDI on two separate tracks at the same time but you can use the MIDI track to play your JUNO and record that audio.
  19. What you are showing is a MIDI track, not an Instrument Track. You aren't going to hear a MIDI track unless it is outputting to a soft synth. A good way to do this is to insert a soft-synth with its own MIDI track and then enter your notes on that MIDI track. You can also use the MIDI track you already have by inserting a soft-synth and then using that synth as the output of the MIDI track.
  20. Are you sure those directories are loaded? Could you post a screencap of those directories expanded to show the contents?
  21. The way I loaded the sample was to expand the directories at the top left and drag a .wav file into the sample window. In your image your directories are still minimized. How did you load the sample in yours? Here is the One Small Clue page for their percussion sampler Poise. I had to download and install Poise before I was able to download their free sample content. After I downloaded the sample content I right-clicked the directory pane and added the directories for the sample content I had downloaded. I had to expand a new directory to see the samples and then I clicked and dragged one into the sample pane on the right. Also, to see the Grace keyboard click the Sample Map button. https://www.onesmallclue.com/index.html
  22. If you inserted Grace with a MIDI track you can use a MIDI controller or the PRV to audition the sounds. One thing I notice is that when I load a sample into Grace it shows the sample's properties in the lower left corner. Your image doesn't show that.
  23. I saw it was freeware so downloaded and installed it. It didn't come with any samples so I also downloaded Poise (from the same company) and the free samples for it. I loaded the directory for the Poise .wav files into Grace and they play fine.
