  1. We’re mixing things up here, i was referring to you as pro (and of course Noel). The info you provide is invaluable. There is a lot of confusing other info around J
  2. But did you re-install the MS Visuals whatnot ? i’ve never had an update issue so can’t advise. Not necessary to back up before updating imho. J
  3. FWIW, i have a F/W focusrite LS 56. Update Windows 1903 and 1909 hosed it. I got it working once with the W10 legacy f/w driver, but wow what a pain when usb works out of the box ...... yes i have a TI chip extension card. Perhaps some have more luck than me, but given the fact that that its a lottery to now run older (not ancient) f/w units ...... i’ll stick with usb. J
  4. Then why do we get so many posts that have so little to say other than disagree with the pros ( see the Noel and Pete Brown posts) ? It becomes very tiring. J
  5. Every 6 months or so, whats the issue for free software ?
  6. Yep, there is a learning curve with a DAW as intricate as Cakewalk. As has been said read the manual. J
  7. Google is your best friend here : https://www.file.net/process/aswjsflt.dll.html Jerry
  8. I have both a laptop (i5) used for recording live work and a desktop (Ryzen) for studio work. On the laptop i keep the wifi on (zero problems) on the desktop its off. Both have a continuous power plan for their USB hubs. Other than that, W10 is out of the box. After major updates i always uninstall then re-install audio drivers, so far no issues. I’m on 20H latest version of W10 for both machines. Maybe i’m just lucky, but (fingers well and truly crossed) i’m doing great, zero issues. Jerry
  9. Errrr rather Mary Hopkins no ? Just nit picking !!!
  10. I’m disappointed. I thought you were going to give us the chord sequence to « All I Want for Christmas » . But i’ll certainly have a look at this as soon as i get out of the cold shower ! j
  11. On my set up the piano icon hangs around for a few seconds after Cakewalk is closed. Always has done. if is more than that, maybe a dodgy plugin ? Why is it a problem ? Jerry
  12. I had a similar problem. Turned out it was an old Pace software driver from a long ago installed vst and no longer used. once uninstalled everything went as expected, but finding the culprit took many BSOD’s. All is up to date now J
  13. Boss GT 100 line out to audio device. Effects already applied. J
  14. For live recording i us an Asus i5 ROG laptop. I added more ram and it can cope with 16 tracks via a Soundcraft MTK 22 full usb audio mixer. I record onto its HD then when we have a pause, i transfer to a usb drive to free up space. its now 3 years old. It does what its supposed to, latency is good. I’m a happy camper Jerry
  15. Just seen the news. There was only ever one James Bond ....... RIP
  16. Set the overall volume level quite high (three quarters up.) Keep your patch levels low to avoid noise.
  17. No, i leave quite a lot of headroom all the same.
  18. 10 to 15 seconds here. My a/v does not scan the various Cakewalk directories. J
  19. This quite common., has happened to me often. Simply re-install your audio drivers. J
  20. I go direct from my Boss GT100 into a Focusrite and then into CbB. I have no issues getting the tone correct. It just needs setting up correctly before hand. I record at a relatively low gain and then normalise the signal if really necessary. Jerry
  21. Yes they do. But....... Your last statement is a bit OTT, i think. You have to take into account the variables of each user’s setup/system. So what may crash for one, won’t crash for another. Otherwise each brand’s forums would be inundated with complaints..... Is CbB « unstable » for you ? Does CbB crash « too much » for you ? i have a home built affair and it is solid - CbB hasn’t crashed since i can’t remember when. Oh, and you haven’t taken into account user error which we are all prone to at some point. Your make other reasonable points that are ok, but, and please don’t take this personally, i just don’t agree with your last phrase, its a little hysterical, s’all. at the end of the day it is all about making music............. isn’t it ?
