  1. Hi all, sorry if this is already common knowledge ... I imported a midifile which was originally made with Logic 9. Cakewalk displayed all Notes as C, C", Cx, C(something) ... It took me some time to figure out the root cause: seemingly Cakewalk didn't like a missing key information and displayed all notes as C with a bazillion sharps ... 😉 Solution: Go to Views --> Meter/Key --> (+) and add an appropriate key signature at the start of the song. Everything should be displayed as expected. Best regards (Tested on: Cakewalk 2020.04, Win7 64bit, MacPro 5.1 / 2011)
  2. Love you guys! Brilliant software, sooo glad. 😄 FYI: Cakewalk has been used for a recording made in space. Keep the good stuff going!
  3. Thanks for the insight John. I have to admit that I have chosen "Simple Instrument Track" because it sounded simple 😉 ... but not exactly the way it originally was intended. Will try to stick to your recommendation. 😌
  4. Same problem here as the original poster: Re-opened a *.cwp a week later and don't get a sound from four out of eight soft synths. Routing used to be fine before. Corresponding MIDI track output meter shows action, its output is linked to the soft synth, soft synth output meter does not show any activity. In synth rack the "freeze" button of the failing soft synths are greyed out, the working ones are accessible. Soloing the track doesn't automatically solo the soft synth. Synth Rack view: in Soft Synth Options both the MIDI in and 1st Output are ticked. The drop-down menu top right of the synth rack shows correctly the associated MIDI input tracks for all soft synth. So here comes the "solution": ====================== - go to the soft synth track header - right-click and chose "Split Instrument Track" (- the newly generated MIDI track can be deleted) - then focus newly generated audio track - in inspector go to the "I" (input) dropdown in my case the sound card was ticked instead of the soft synth chose the corresponding vst and set output to e. g. "Primary Output: Stereo" Yes indeed, it is not self-explanatory why you should go to "input" to select an output ... ;-) So the problem might start by triggering a "Simple Instrument Track" from another midi track. That appears to work initially but can get corrupted. Haven't figured out what causes the information loss. Renaming the MIDI track, adding & deleting other soft synths, updating cakewalk ... ? - no idea. At least we got a clue ... ;-)
