  1. Great responses. Yeah, I set the cloned track send to pre-fader and just turned the fader down. I thought killing the output assignment might be best, but probably isn’t important. Bristol, what I’m finding is that neat things happen when I apply different EQ to the various instruments/voices’ reverb sends. Sure, though, a blanket cleanup on the bus before the verb is a nice utility. I’ll see why it’s locking up later tonight. Thank you!
  2. I created a cloned audio track to just use the pre-fader aux send. I selected no output assignment. When I came back to load the project I got the message regarding no output selected and CW freezes. Any ideas?
  3. I commonly utilize a verb bus on songs, adding similar ambience to all the instruments at varied intensities. This week I analyzed my verb output spectrum and saw mud and junk I hadn’t considered prior with some ensembles. I thought to remove it by EQ on the bus input signals versus EQ on the reverb as a whole, thinking “why even feed the verb unwanted frequencies in the first place?” So I duplicated certain instrument tracks and EQ’d the clones to tailor the send frequency ranges. I then sent these signals, pre-fader, to the verb bus, and set the track output assignment to none. It worked fine (until I restarted the project, but wait for this). 1) Is this the only way to pull this off? 2) When I reloaded the project, it froze on a message that I had an audio track with no output assigned. I have to kill the Cakwalk app in Task Manager to get past the lockup. Is this a bug or system malfunction? Thank you to any and all responding neighbors! Jonas

  5. I updated yesterday and my projects opened with audio dropouts. My solution: Start using Sequoia and Nuendo for all of my important DAW projects. And I've been with Cake since 1988. I'm done.
  6. If you have plugins in the master bus that load the system a bit, you'll get this. I tend to have Izotope Ozone in my master bus effects, and unless I deactivate it during monitoring of a VI, I get the latency you are talking about. Same if I have effects in the soft-synth's channel. That's always been the case, though, when monitoring realtime soft-synth input within Cakewalk or Sequoia or Nuendo or ProTools. My reply here does NOT address your point if you truly are experiencing a change that is simply due to software update, of course. I have a Lynx Two audio interface (PC card).
  7. Connect the JUNO directly to the PC. Period. Record MIDI into Cakewalk via this and Cake will play the JUNO directly via this. Your MIDI track will receive MIDI directly from the port and it will play TO that port (just pull down the port/device in your track options tabs and select). Cake will see the JUNO as a MIDI device, so check it as an active device in Settings so it's available. There should be no reason at all to use it as a MIDI device through another intermediate device, in my opinion. Setup a MIDI track in Cake, assign the input to your JUNO, and, when you "monitor" it and play the keyboard, your JUNO will play. There is even a .ini file available with the JUNO patches! They will be selectable in the track menu system! When you record this way and then play back the track, your JUNO will play. How you get that AUDIO saved into Cake will be up to you. I have my keys going to a mixer whose line output goes to my main soundcard. If you want to record the JUNO directly, you can set it up to be a digital audio input. That is, it will be the same as a "soundcard" (an "audio device"). Set it to "VENDOR" driver versus "GENERIC" in its setup menu system, and it will then appear as an audio device in your OS and in Cake. You'd then record audio directly from it, but probably at the sacrifice of your other audio having to be assigned to the JUNO device (if ASIO, which can only use one device per application) instead of your routine sound device. That can be a hassle. I have all my outboard synths going to a mixer, and then have that mixer's output available to my "soundcard". You can capture both the MIDI and the audio this way, and then replay/re-record as needed. What's fun about midi tracks playing your synth is that you can do what I might term "reboard" (assigning a new sound to a MIDI track).
  8. Entirely ditto question for me, and Tonemangler, you're a gem!
  9. A hats off to every great spirit here who helped Mike. I admit here and now that I wanted to say "Mike, you have to do your learning and whatnot on your best level first", but I'm a bit changed now due to seeing the great souls here and their patience. You'll get there, Mike. Cakewalk will be a very intuitive, flowing interface for you once you get the audio stuff right.
  10. Great thread. I complain about CW, but it's been my cruiser for decades. Samplitude/Sequoia is very, very good, too. The Cake workflow is actually great.
  11. Noel, if someone there can rename my topic title, that would be great. I see it as negative and a bit of unnecessary derogation. Jon
  12. I have my TSModel on 2. Noel, I switched to my Line6 Toneport UX2 as my audio device and it was even worse, but that's an old monkey. I also use Sequoia as a DAW, and found the Magix Low Latency driver in my registry and deleted it. No change. Didn't think that would matter. Noel, Lynx writes the following in their notes on the latest driver 24c: Are they correct about setting the thread priority being a no-no?
  13. That's where I'm doing the fade.
  14. When I use the fade tool (top right of end of clip), it fades all the clips in that take (I have several splits). Why? How do I make this just work on the area I'm adjusting?
