  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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?
  4. That's where I'm doing the fade.
  5. 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?
  6. Hi Noel, and thank you for posting. I've talked to Lynx, and you posted here as well to one of my posts a few months ago regarding this. I had the updated Lynx driver, but was confused as to which one of the "Enable MMCSS" toggles (or both) I should turn off, because both Cakewalk and Lynx offer the on/off option. I called Lynx and asked and they said they did not know that Cakewalk had a toggle. To make short of that story, if I have both of the new codes (yours and Lynx'), do I need to turn it off? It's not a fatal issue like the posting you referenced, just a performance problem. Are you pretty confident I can use it now? I don't want to shut it off it it's supposed to work. If it should be shut off, should I cut both the Cake and the Lynx toggles? Also, again, it's the comparitive issues with Sonar/Cakewalk (to other software) that stands out here.
  7. Bill, thank you. Very diplomatic interaction! Yes, my frustration bubbles a bit. I've also done this for so long that I make the mistake that everyone knows that we veterans do everything right and know what we're doing! Great cooperative spirit in your post, and exemplary of the best in community cooperation in these days of seeing much turmoil between souls.
  8. What a thorough and detailed response. Thank you! I'm always at 48KHz/24-bit/128 samples. I use the Lynx ASIO driver that works with my soundcard. I use two of eight stereo outputs and inputs on that interface. All of my drives are SSDs. My system crackles when the Cake resouce meters show the cores bouncing around 25%, and always fails when higher. I did find that my CD/DVD port was causing latency, so I disable that when using Cakewalk (Latency Mon showed me that), but, again, no issues in any other DAWs. I truly think Cake does something different in some ways that ends up being problematic for the audio engine. Just years of experience with it amidst other products. You make great points, though, as do others.
  9. I record upright bass to jazz quite often, and I do it by having my tone "live", as with all my guitar and analog input -- that being the tone that I present to Cakewalk is from a mixer output and already has my commitment to the final voice. Short statement: I don't reamp. Now, if latency didn't exist, I might record tones with live plugins in the channel. For now, no. SO, I have my preamps and analog boxes dialed in, and then my plugins (two ASIO devices can work at the same time if controlled by different applications) doing the rest. Typical guitar for me is BiasFX2 or SGear via my TonePort UX2 (ASIO, 24-bit, 48KHz) and Cakewalk using my Lynx soundcard at the same specs. The TonePort sends its output to my mixer, which sends an analogue signal to the Lynx inputs, and that is the final track sound, overall (but may take on digital/plugin tweaks later). It takes (pun intended) deliberate commitment and tone planning, but I'm used to that. The bottom line, so to speak, is that I'm so bad at playing that I need the tone of my guitar, bass, sax, piano to be inspiring as I play, and to be what I see as the final voice. Anyway, that sets up EQ fashions in the hardware AND the plugins. I would say that the preamps and stuff prior to plugins shape my EQ stance more than a plugin. Message here is, maybe: have the analog voice be the stuff as much as possible. That will be outboard stuff that you would commit to if gigging, right? Your tone as the "you" being presented to recording efforts. I learned this in the studio, as well.
  10. Mr. Anderton, I've enjoyed your engagement and contributions to the recording world for over twenty-five years (Electronic Musician magazines that I still have). It is my privilege to absorb your thoughts and approaches to music production. I truly mean that.
  11. Killer, killer software. Great citation, Bit.
  12. Wow, yes. What insight and wisdom you show here, Craig. Truly. I had a Tascam deck (4-ch), and it was, although a privilege in the early eighties, a challenge. 15-ips was the blessing, I thought! But we innovated and got our art down!
  13. What kind of tone do you want? What does it sound like now that you want to change? That makes pursuit of effects a bit more deliberate. Mr. Anderton's suggestion is super. I use band-based compression most often. Waves has two good ones.
  14. Thank you, John. It's a puzzle. Much of my thoughts on this center on the number of issues with Cake audio when compared to other systems. I use Pro Tools, too, and it skates through this stuff.
  15. Hmm. What does "bitch" mean? If I guess correctly, that's what you're doing regarding my posting, correct?
