  1. I have you beat. Still using SONAR Home Studio 6. Reason? My DAW is an old 32-bit XP computer and has an interface already in it. This 64-bit 4 GB Win 10 box would probably be under-powered for CbB, and I would have to get an interface. I do have Cakewalk installed on it just to look at things asked about here. Or to listen.
  2. Cool beans Bub. That you survived, that is, not that you had the accident.
  3. Welcome to the forum. I have found that some synths want the patch to be selected in the track pane, and others will play the patch chosen in the synth's patch browser. TTS-1 likes the patch in the track pane. You can change the output of your MIDI track to your preferred synth; no need to drag the data.
  4. My friend Jami bought a cheap mandolin a few months back. It's been sitting in its gig bag since then. I was over there today and she asked if I could remove the packing and tune it for her. I've never played one before so with the help of the included teaching books and Google I found a G note on the phone to help me tune it. She had no other instruments in the house and I don't have perfect pitch (some might say I don't have any pitch 😁) so thank goodness we live in the 21st century. First I had to loosen all of the strings to lift the bridge off a little piece of styrofoam between it and the body, then tighten them again to tune them. Within a few minutes I was playing the chords from the book. I learned my fingers are way too big for the mandolin. I hope she enjoys it while she is (still) recovering.

    Audio is being sped up

    Is it a USB mic?
  6. Strings? We don't need no stinking strings.
  7. I have a file containing many old Yamaha IDs that I think I downloaded from their website ~2004. If anyone is interested, PM me the model you need and I'll see if it's in the file.
  8. Sorry; I didn't know there would be math(s) involved. Thanks everybody! Now I can begin my next 64 years.
  9. One way: In the Piano Roll View (PRV), click a piano key or drum name on the left. That will (should) select all those notes in the track. Click Ctrl C to copy those notes. Go to another MIDI Track and place the cursor where you want the notes and click Ctrl V to copy the clip into the new track. Do this for each drum in the kit. It may sound like a lot of work but it really goes pretty quickly. As always, there are probably other methods to get the same result.
  10. I am 64! Whoda thunk I'd ever get this far? Thanks, Steve!
  11. Notepad-8FX Using the Soundcraft USB Audio Control Panel for PC on the Soundcraft.com website, users can select the “Audio Routing” tab, to select the point in the console feeding the USB bus to computer. For Inputs 1+2, users can select from: Mic Inputs 1+2 Stereo Input 3+4 Stereo Input 5+6 Mix L+R USB return will come into the input channel 7+8, which is the channel where the USB-B connector is attached. This signal is summed with signal coming in the RCA 7+8 jacks, before proceeding down the input channel strip. Did you download and install their USB Audio Control Panel?
  12. I spent some of my youth living in Tampa, right next to MacDill AFB back before sonic booms became 'bad'. F-4 Phantoms were loud enough without having to break the sound barrier.
  13. You're welcome. Fifteen years ago when Cakewalk offered software at different levels such as Music Creator and Home Studio, most new users would start with one of those rather then the more complex (and expensive) SONAR. There were also forums for the lesser programs to help newbies get started. Now, with what is essentially an updated SONAR Platinum with a zillion options and a thousand page user manual offered for free, new users are sometimes overwhelmed by the complexity and versatility of Cakewalk by Bandlab. And since this is the only CbB forum (besides the Q & A forum) new users come here to ask some pretty basic questions and may not get an immediate response. I'm not the most knowledgeable guy re: CbB, but sometimes just responding and asking a few questions can get the ball rolling for the Cakewalk literati to jump in. And who knows? I might actually say something relevant. 😁
  14. Welcome to the forum. What happens if you set the MIDI track's output to SI-Drums instead of copying the notes to the synth track?
  15. Here's the first one for this new forum. MX.ins
  16. Welcome to the forum. This often happens when using the computer's sound chip that uses "What You Hear" or "Stereo Mix" as its input. That will record everything you hear. Choosing a different input should stop this from happening. So, your drum computer is being input as MIDI, but you must have a way to make and hear the drum sounds. Most often, that is with a software synthesizer in Cakewalk. The MIDI is played/recorded on a track and that MIDI data is sent to the synth so the sound can be heard. The synth converts the data to audio and is played as audio through the program, sent to the What You Hear or Stereo Mix input and recorded on the new guitar track. Or, your drum computer's audio outputs are connected to the sound chip's audio inputs and played through an audio track in Cakewalk, and the same routing causes the drums to be recorded on the guitar track. Are you using the computer's sound chip are an external audio interface?
  17. Good points. Is there any situation in which the noise doesn't occur? (Didn't read through the whole thread again). It certainly seems like it may be a click or pop from a bad split, but that's probably ruled out now. Perhaps some superfluous MIDI data sending a note to a synth at that point? What happens if you rewind to the beginning and go to Project>Insert Time/Measures and insert a measure or 2? You can undo this by hitting Ctrl Z. Does the noise move to the same amount or remain at 96/2.5?

    Most often this is due to Windows resetting the audio preferences after an update. Check that your sampling rate and bit depth match in CbB and whatever audio device you are using and that your preferred device is actually the one selected.
  19. Saw an episode of their show last week. They were at a restaurant in Hatch, New Mexico and a Mariachi band played Paranoid for them. Interesting. Unusual. Trippy.
  20. Okay. That sounds like you may have split a clip(s) not at Zero Crossings. That will probably make a noise when played back.
