  1. HI:) If you start with Gain Access Mode, there's no Gain Knob anymore, I so often accidentically changed Gains so that I decided to have it only in Level Mode. (Long Press "Solo" Button) You can see here this Mode: Shows the Level of the selected Track in Stereo. Shortly before the Red lights is -18 dB, the Sweet Spot. You can then change the Gain of the following 7 Channels too...sometimes we have the same Audiomaterial on a lot of tracks, so Gain Staging is a bit quicker:) The Rotors 1-8 in Gain Access Mode now have a new AZController Function to save and recall Positions for that CbB Session. Go to a positon and move one of the 8 Rotors all the way to the left. If you then want to recall this position, just activate GA-Mode and push the Rotor all the way to the right. So you have 8 Positions to Save and Recall, but it's not saved with the project! It was not documented, just updated the Word and Pdf Files a few minutes ago. Everything else is fine in the documents I hope;) Bassman.
  2. HI:) Just Double Press the "Mute" Button (2 times within 400 msec.) . You can see the Mute and Solo States on the Button Leds, press Shift or Ctrl (Track Select left and right or double press "Record Arm" and "Solo" Buttons (my favorites)) to see other states of the selected tracks. Double Press Device Button and with Shift you can see more options in the List, LP is long Press, SP Short Press and DP Double Press! The first 8 Cells are the Buttons on the right, then the 24 Rotors, a line of other Infos, the Faders and the Buttons, for example in the first row down the 13th cell you can see the actual measure of the Play Cursor, Use the 1. Fader in Normal Mode (Device and Mute" Buttons not blinking) and you can see it rising, the right cell to the right are the names of the markers) If you press the GainAccess Button you can see the Fader Values and the names of the selected Tracks! I think you'll love this list if you work with it, especially very helpful with the ACT Mode and Plugins or the ProChannel Mode (Long Press "Mute" Button, you can see the values of the controls and don't have to open ProChannel to see what happens in the EQ or Compressor! Have fun;) (Double Press "Device" Button to see the list, Double Press "Mute" Button and you can see the values of the ProChannel of the selected Track. Then press "Send Select Down/Up" to switch to the next/previous track and the values are changing (hopefully;)), so no need to open ProChannel, just work with the list! Please read the documents, there are a lot of informations in it. I have not actualized it for a long time, so if you can find wrong things please correct it ans send it to me! Thanks;) Nice that someone uses this Preset. I know it's completely overloaded but I just wanted to show the possibilities of AZController. Cause I switched to Reaper (massive Midi Glitches in CbB caused me to work with another DAW!), I do use Cakewalk just for older Projects. I love CbB, but since I have to work a lot with Midi it's sometimes a mess to work with and I'm very happy with Reaper at the moment and made a similar Controller Preset with ReaLearn in Reaper so I have almost the same Controller:) Gain Access Mode is the most used Mode I think, so just write if you have Problems! Some things don't work correctly, especially the Edit cursor in CbB do sometimes work and sometimes not, that's very buggy in CbB and it was in Cakewalk! Have fun with the preset! Greetz;) Bassman.
  3. HI:) @jackson white Never used it, but as I see, I have to take a look on it, thanks;) Bassman.
  4. HI:) On small speakers it's not possible to hear frequencies under 100 Hz for example. So instead of rasing 80 Hz (Key of E) on the Bass, use the first, second and third Overtone in the mix. 160, 240 and 320 Hertz, depends on the Key the song is, so in "G" the frequencies are around 100, 150 and 200 Hz. (Just download a frequency table, 1.Overtone x2, 2. x2,5, 3. x4) Try it out;) Greetz, Bassman.
  5. HI:) Bought a 12700k 2 weeks ago and I'm very happy with it. First I got Problems with heat and a loud FAN, but I accidentically put the CPU FAN in a wrong direction on the Cooler😁 Now I have temperature form 42° to 55 ° C. I dimmed the CPU to MAX 100W and in my largest projects I have a MAX from 10 - 15% CPU Load, when I had with the same Projects 30 - 45 % Load on an 9700k. If I need more Performance I can raise the speed and the MAX Power, but absolutely not necessary, don't think that my projects are getting bigger. For sure the 12700 with 65 Watt will be not as "loud" , but it's only 33 dB (I'm listening at 80-85 dB) at my listening position in studio, not really loud. I couldn't hear my 9700k, that was great, but I can live with these 33 dB;) Greetz;) Bassman.
  6. HI:) First of all I make a copy of the Track and Archive it! I'm starting with Clip Gain automation for too loud and too soft pieces. Listen with the rest of the Arrangement For Voices next I lower sharp "s", "t", "sch" and perhaps "P", not with automation. Sometimes I cut those and put it on another track and now I can make them softer. Never heard a really good Deesser! Then Compress everything, but not too heavy, max 3:1, 5-6 dB Gain Reduction. On Bass or Synths much more, 8:1 (10 dB) Next Equalize it. Effects for the Track. Perhaps change again some pieces, with Reverb and Delay you can hear bad behaviours much more. At the End Track Automation with the Rest Mix. I don't like Compression so I always try to use it very subtle. Hope that helps;) Bassman.
  7. HI:) Solved! Renaming the Outputs on both PCs did the trick, I just numbered them correctly and now it works. @Kurre Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. It seems they are ordered Alphabetically! Thanks to all for helping;) Greetz;) Bassman.
  8. HI:) @Cactus Music 2 complete different Interfaces, as you can see in the pictures. Steinberg UR44C in my Office Machine and Audiobox 1818VSL in my Studio PC. Now, yesterday I did a complete New Install of Win 11 and CbB (Studio PC) cause of some glitching Problems with a large Project and the same problem occurs with this Outputs 5 and 6, it shifts to the out 1 and 2. doesn't happen if I deactivate 5 and 6 in the device manager on the Office PC (I do not use "really" these Outputs, they are Dummy outputs for the Master Bus, muted for output) Means, I have a Mixbus with a Send to Outputs 1 and 2 (The Send I use for Loudness of my Monitors), which goes to the Masterbus with A Loudness Meter on it, but goes to Outputs 5&6 muted. On 3&4 I have a second Monitor Pair with a second Send(Small Speakers). Mixloudness with Mix Fader, feeding the Loudness Meter on Masterbus. So if I deactivate 5 and 6, the order is on both PCs the same, on activated 5 and 6 , these become 1 and 2 on the other machine. But why? Greetz;) Bassman.
  9. HI:) @Cactus Music On both are the newest drivers installed, but I can see an FL Studio driver greyed out in the audio devices in office but not in studio. Perhaps this interferes with the list? don't think so, it was installed since a year or so.... Trying out... @Kurre There's no possibilitiy to order them! @sjoens For sure I can click and reorder them in this window, but then I have to order it on every project port from office, and I do it a lot vice versa! Not very practicable! And it always worked before... Greetz;) Bassman.
  10. HI:) 2 PCs with different Soundcards. Porting from my Studio to my Office all is fine, the Outputs are in correct order, look here: In the other direction it changes the order since the last update: FX Bus from UR44C is in first place but it should not be, these are the Outputs 5/6 on UR44, so what happened? Can I change this again? Thanks;) Bassman.
  11. HI:) This upper Song is in G Major! So you have: G Am Bm C D/D7 Em and F#m5- In addition you can use the Dominant Sevenths of the "normal Chords" D7 E7 F#7 G7 A7 B7 and C#7 In the Song is used G B7 C Cm So, clear is G and C as Tonic and Subdominant and B7 as Dominant of the E minor. Unclear is Cm, but often used as a way to lead back to the Tonic G. But it sounds strange in this song... Hope this helps;) Bassman.
  12. HI:) Finally caught the Controller Problem in the PRV. Sometimes it happens that I can't edit visible controllers. In the video you can see that the CCs on the left are editable but this one at the right not! This happens I think on every working session I have, but I can't say when and why, it's not reproducable! All notes are in the same clip, nothing is muted, but I know I before moved the clip 200 ticks to the left with the CCs moving along. The only possibility is to delete it and insert a new one for this session. If I close the project and reopen it it works again! Same with Transform Tool ( I mentioned this earlier and you got a project of this problem) , sometimes it works, sometimes not. Thanks for eventually helping;) Bassman. P.S. Video from Transform Tool 1. It changes CCs even if I have not selected anything 2. I change the middle edit point and the selection goes away 3. Some other points doesn't unselectsome do unselect the data.
  13. HI:) @Base 57 The Problem is, you forget about things you don't need very often. 99,9 % of using mute tool is in PRV muting midi notes, with audio I can't remember I muted any Waveform, but often Clips with "K" or the mouse. I'm confused when I use my 3 other DAWs, Shortcuts are different, not to say everything's different. These days I wanted to work with Studio one and I couldn't figure out (for some time) how to open the Edit window for a midi(instrument track in S1) track to input some notes. That was funny🤣 The older I get, the more forgetful I get, not only my problem😁😂 I find the Mute Tool very OK how it works, if you mute the clip Midi is full red in PRV, special notes you muted are black with a red line around. Could not be better! I have to read the manual before I use tools that I use only seldom. Bassman.
  14. HI:) @Base 57 My fault!! I just clicked at the top of the clips cause I thought it mutes and unmutes the whole clip (it does). don't use the mute tool very often so I forgot that you can unmute the waveform by swiping at the top of the clip. OK😁 Should use it more often then. Normally I just Comp or better let sing the whole verse/chorus again. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction and sorry for this stupidness😂 I'm getting old😒😁 But there's one thing that didn't work for me: "Extend Takes to Punch Out Time" I selected this setting but in the picture/video you can see that the beginning of the clips is the same Punch In Time, but the end of the clip is when I stopped the recording, it's not extended to the Punch Out Time. Greetz;) Bassman.
  15. HI:) @Base 57 Look at the video, the Mute Tool doesn't work! Neither "K" does unmute them! The Comp Tool does select them "muted". Bassman:)
