  1. But, its up to the plug in developers to update their offerings. Driver developers also. And often they do, albeit with some delay. But for those that don’t, how long does it take you to reinstall things on a modern PC ? Imagine if we were on Mac’s and were told not to update to an OS by vst creators (which is the case with certain ones at the moment). As a matter of fact and to avoid any possible issues i always re-install my Focusrite drivers every autumn and spring, when the two major W10 updates fall. Its very simple, not an issue as far as i’m concerned. Same for my live rig (laptop) with the Soundcraft drivers. Whilst its very easy to blame Wondows, and yes there are certain issues, there are workarounds as above that are simple and easy to apply. My 2 euro cents YMMV J
  2. And no other DAW has such issues ? I used to really love this forum, but recently......... am i the only one without major issues ? J
  3. We used to sing this in ktv’s in china a few years ago. The guy made a fortune with this track. Another song that was a great hit in ktv’s was by the Chopstick Brothers - Little Apple. You can skip to 1m20 when the song actually starts. Fun times !!! Jerry
  4. Then lets agree to disagree. J
  5. Yep. Just purchased Mixbus 32c. Price on the website was 70 usd. Price at checkout was 84 usd including French tax. J
  6. Hmm, no. I buy from a US site they identify which country i live in from my IP address and lo and behold. VAT a la française.. I guess i could use a VPN ........... J
  7. No. Whats sad is you speculate and complain .... but don’t report. You’ve sort of shot yourself in the foot there matey ! J
  8. Yes its a pain here in France. I’ve bought a few things from the US (X-Plane software, sheet music books, a coffee mug for the missus) and each time, if the shipping company was Fed-Ex a month or so after receiving the item a tax bill turns up for the TVA (value added tax). To the extent of being ridiculous on the coffee cup. Personally, I now limit my buying to items from a company in one of the European countries, you pay tax at point of purchase at the importing country’s rate. That is if i buy from Thomann (based in Germany) something for xyz Euros, then they’ll add on French TVA and invoice me. They then pass on the tax to France. I hope....... But you still get better deals from the US of A. I’ve never tried e-Bay. J
  9. For something as complete as Cakewalk AND free - thats asking too much ? It doesn’t bother me in the slightest. YMMV
  10. And then there’s this, one of the first songs learned in first group : And of course this :
  11. The MTK series have different drivers which haven’t let me down over the past 3 years. I do however re-install after each major W10 update. personally i recommend the MKT 22. But as ever, YMMV Jerry
  12. I have the Soundcraft MTK 22 which we use for live and studio work. Its great with rock solid drivers. allows me to record a one hour set with 16 tracks onto an Asus laptop with no hiccups. Its mid price. Great piece of kit. Jerry
  13. So does any daw have continuity ? sorry, but daft question. Wait and see.
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. Every 6 months or so, whats the issue for free software ?
  19. Yep, there is a learning curve with a DAW as intricate as Cakewalk. As has been said read the manual. J
  20. Google is your best friend here : https://www.file.net/process/aswjsflt.dll.html Jerry
  21. 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
  22. Errrr rather Mary Hopkins no ? Just nit picking !!!
  23. 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
