  1. Could be your hard drive is failing.
  2. Without being funny upgrade to Cakewalk by Bandlab. It is free and is 100 times better.
  3. For a start Cakewalk comes with the TH3. It is an audio FX, not an instrument if you haven't seen it. Also, have a look at this
  4. @57GregyI suspect that when the driver for the USB devices was installed Windows set it as both default input and output. I Googled AT2020, it is a microphone with a USB connector as its plug. There is no headphone socket. Well done Windows for selecting a non-existing headphone as default output. Waiting for the list of available audio outputs to specify which to use.
  5. Right-click on the speaker icon and select Open Sound Settings. Top of the list is Chose your output device. What options do you have in the list? This is what I get.
  6. When you insert the TTS-1 make sure you select "All Synth Audio Outputs: Stereo" Then click on the icon for the TTS-1. When the GUI opens, do the following: Click on the System button on the right of the GUI. Then click on Option. There you can select which of the 4 outputs each channel must use." Here Part 01 (MIDI channel 1) goes to Output 1. Part 02 (MIDI channel 2) goes to Output 3. Click on the Output channel you want to use for each MIDI channel.
  7. Here is a tutorial about the Cakewalk interface/layout. In the Tutorial section search for start or beginners. Go to YouTube and search for cakewalk start or cakewalk beginners. Watch a couple of the videos. You will soon learn what to look for on youtube to help you.
  8. It is the long bit at the top of the screen. Go Views -> Control Bar and see what disappears. Or if it is off, what appears. You should see Events somewhere on it. (Layout is configurable.) If you don't see Events, right-click on an empty spot on the Control Bar, then Modules, and switch on Events.
  9. Select all the ones you want to change. Standard Windows select. Click 1st, shift-click last, Ctrla-A, ctrl-click individual rows. Use the extreme left column - goes black when selected. In the Control Bar select Events. Change the Channel. Useful for bulk changing various parameters.
  10. Yes. Yes. Just don't forget about the change if you ever decide to import a map. 😀
  11. There are 2 ways you can go about this. Accept the fact that Cakewalk starts at Octave 0, whereas almost everything else starts at Octave -2. So if Ample Guitar says C3 you need to use C5. A lot of people work this way. You get used to it. OR: You can go to Edit -> Preferences -> Display -> Base Octave for Pitches (right at the bottom) and change it from 0 to -2. Now the lowest note on the PRV is C-2, instead of C0. And when Ample guitar wants C3 you look for C3 on the PRV. Makes life easier. EXCEPT: There are a few VSTs which use C0, so you have to compensate with those. Also, when you start using Articulation Maps (which you should be doing) they will all be wrong. Takes yer choice. 😀 Articulation Maps: Look at this and this.
  12. Your point 2) The input midi channels of TTS-1 are 1 to 16, as numbered on the GUI. Not changeable. TTS-1 has 4 audio outputs. Can be stereo or mono, but still only 4 outputs. Click on the System button on the right of the GUI. Then click on Option. There you can select which of the 4 outputs each channel must use. When you insert the TTS-1, select "All Synth Audio Outputs: Stereo" and the 4 audio output tracks will be created.
  13. Use Windows and delete the folders/files.
  14. Go to Control Panel. Select View by icons, not categories. Click on Sound. Go to Sounds tab. Scroll down to Select. Set Sounds: (None)
