  1. It says 'sold out', which is kind of funny for something that can be downloaded! A picture of an empty warehouse would add realism.
  2. I am no expert, but as what stated in another thread, you might want to play with the time base setting for your tracks. This will have an effect on things moving around or not when applying tempo. I believe that if you leave it at the default of 'musical', things will be moved because the tempo changes and it is trying to keep things at the same measures, and if you select 'absolute' it will keep them at the same timestamp independent of the new tempo. Try it and see if it helps.
  3. I can't tell you what it looks on 4k, but I can tell you what it looks like on a 2k 32" since that is what I have. I also have a 22" on top of it, on a pole, which I use to put plugins so that they don't overlap the Cakewalk main screen. The 2k 32" is on my desk at about the same distance that you would put any PC monitor, a few feet from me, at the back of a normal desk. Cakewalk is a blast to use with it. I do not have any scaling and so no blurriness at all, just a ton of usable screen real-estate. A pleasure to use, even with my old eyes. I have Presonus Eris e8 studio monitors, which are large with their 8" woofers, on each side of the 32". I am very satisfied with that setup to work with.
  4. I thought they would all be free BECAUSE of Lars! 😁
  5. Happy holidays from MontrΓ©al! May 2021 bring all the plugins you want and may they all be free! πŸ™ƒ
  6. Did almost as above ^^^ Got it to work using Spotify to login. No questions asked (hire or be hired), so I guess I won't end up in their listings. Then went to member benefits and got the code. Thanks to OP and others that chimed in. As Soundwise has put it, this is a more limited version which should not overwhelm a guitar player.
  7. Thanks for bumping, I had missed that one. Merry Christmas!
  8. Anyone knows if the crossgrade price will stick after the 30th? Still trying to figure out which edition to get and it's family time of the year more than studio time. I would rather wait in 2021 to decide.
  9. Yep, I have been using it for quite a while solely as track insert without problem. Running on a 5 year old i7 workstation running Windows 10 Pro.
  10. Well, honestly, I have Pro because the HP workstation I use for Cakewalk came with Windows 10 Pro preinstalled! For me, there is no benefit of using Pro. I don't need to access it remotly. I don't use any of the Pro's features.
  11. Wooaa! I just tried the Tiny Terror preset that I had made in AT4 and imported in AT5. It just sounds amazing. Actually, very different than what it sounded like in AT4. Like I was trying the same amp simulation from a totally different company, not from two different version of the same company's software! And that is only using AT5 CS, so not even adding VIR into the equation! I can't compare with a real Tiny Terror since I don't have one. But it kind of felt strange to have such difference from the same company's emulation!?!?! So, if you have done recordings using AT4, I suggest you keep AT4 around so your sounds don't change on you. But, if you are asking yourselves which I like best? AT5's rendition is even better for me, just couldn't stop playing, but took a break to write this. And there are a ton of other reasons to like AT5 over AT4! There is no going back now! I always had difficulty setting gain staging in AT4. It is so much better in AT5. It seems things fall into place by themselves! I just set my interface's input level correctly and they are just right in AT5. In AT4 they would always be too low. Since I am not of the pre-order kind of guy, I now have to decide which version to get. Hard to decide and may take me a little while still. For sure CS will not cut it for me. I am tempted by AT5 Max, but at my age I probably do not have enough lifetime left in me to try/use all that is included! 😱 Life is so short! πŸ˜† But I do want the Rockman if only to reminisce having one when it came out! And of course, play Def Leppard's Hysteria on one of the clean channel, which they did on the recording!
  12. I don't know if that has been asked before. Can AT4 presets I made myself be imported in some way into AT5? Edit: I just tried copying my presets from '...\Documents\IK Multimedia\AmpliTube 4' to '...\Documents\IK Multimedia\AmpliTube 5' and it worked! It seems AT5 can read AT4 presets. Cool!
  13. Yep, worked for me after a restore purchases. Great! Thanks Peter!
  14. Thanks Peter and the team. Nice to know we'll get it at some point. Cool!
  15. Just installed AT5 CS to see how the new UI looks like and it's great as far as I am concerned. Really love it over AT4, great improvement. Super happy with this new little icon! I voiced my disappointment before and how I hated seeing gears I didn't own and getting the dreadful message box, etc. Thanks IK, this is nice! All my collections are there, great! The only thing missing is the free Orange Tiny Terror that was given away a while back. I have grown very found of the little amp, especially since it reminds me of 1 1/2 year old grand daughter every time I read its name πŸ˜†, and I am quite disappointed not to see it included. πŸ€₯ @Peter - IK Multimedia Any reason why this nice gift is taken away from us moving to AT5?
  16. I am from Canada too. How was the duty like if I may ask? I am always a bit afraid of ordering directly from IK since I don't know how duties will inflate the cost.
  17. Geez, now I feel really bad! Sorry Peter! Maybe no one would have seen it if I hadn't pointed it out. I just wasn't sure if it was a typo. πŸ€₯ My career has been as a software developer and I know what its like to deliver software. With all the best intentions, sometimes it still ain't enough. But... honestly... only 1 day delay... in software development that's almost a miracle!
  18. Oups, didn't want to start anything here. 😲 15th, 16th doesn't make much difference to me...
  19. Ok, Italy is 6 hours ahead of Montreal. So that means I should be able to download it when I wake up on the 16th... Won't sleep late on that day! Is the 16th by any chance a typo? Shouldn't it be the 15th or is there a one day delay? Does that include CS for those of us who haven't preordered? Is demoing only possible through CS?
  20. This makes so much sense. Every playback system has its own EQ curve. I guess when we hear that mastering needs to make it sound good on all systems, it actually means good on systems that are as flat as the monitoring system used to master and acceptable on all others. I see two main areas in mastering: sound level and EQ. It seems that sound level will translate well over any system and is pretty independent of the playback system, but EQ isn't. Unfortunatly, it may then mean that how we EQ in mastering, if it does not translate well on some system, may need to be changed for lesser/different systems. Which means that someone with a high quality/flat system close to ours may never hear how we first intended the song to sound. It's like we are going for the lowest common denominator here...
  21. Thanks Larry! Although I'll thank you even more when I finally get to install it and try it out! Still downloading... But it looks like a very good find!
  22. Didn't get that email. Good news: I get to keep 5 bucks ! Bad news: I am sure I could have found something worth 5 bucks in that list...
