  1. According to that article, one of the main computers having problems with this version is the Microsoft Surface. Seems to be a bit of irony there
  2. That's pretty good! The actual name of that patch is "delay kitty." As I was auditioning sounds that one made me laugh and I didn't take it seriously. But after playing it back a few times, it sort of grew on me.
  3. Here is an old song of mine finally finished and brought up to today's technology. I have tons of old music that is mostly complete but that basically only exist as midi files in Cakewalk. In the past, that was essentially all I did was compose songs in midi using Cakewalk and playing back using a GM player, usually TTS-1 or a soundfont player. I now have many VSTI's to select from and my music now contains an assortment of these synths. I'm still struggling with getting things to sound correct once they've been uploaded to Soundcloud. I also am never very sure of what genre my music is, so when in doubt, I choose "electronic." Hope you enjoy. All suggestions are appreciated and will be given consideration. Thanks.
  4. I've got the Nektar Impact LX25+ and I love it... considering I bought it used for $60. The "terrible key bed" you mention is something I can live with in my situation.

    A recent composition of mine. I finally decided to get some of my music up on Soundcloud. Completely composed, mixed, and mastered on Cakewalk.
  6. I'm living on the shoreline of the Sea of Tranquility. Actually, East Texas, USA.
  7. I figured out what was happening. I would open a project that had tracks set to a synth I no longer have installed. I would then add Cakewalk TTS-1 as a synth. The tracks would have a bank number that doesn't exist for that synth (like bank "1" instead of bank"15488 Preset Normal 0"). As soon as I change to a proper bank setting, the note names appear.
  8. I'm thinking maybe the file originated as a MIDI type 0 that I saved as a .cwp file. Not sure that would cause this but it's my only guess right now.
  9. OK. I was able to find a workaround. I saved the project as a type 1 midi file and when I opened that file it is back to showing the note names. The old file that showed only number was a .cwp file from around 10 years ago. So I've got it working but would like to know if there is a shortcut key or something that could change this as I suspect I may have more old files the will exhibit this behavior.
  10. Here is what I want. Names not numbers under data.
  11. I opened an old project and when I look at the events list it has the note number under data instead of the diatonic name (C6, F#3, D4, etc.). I noticed it was the same way in the PRV but I was able to change it there but the event list still shows a number. I would like to see the diatonic name. How to fix?
  12. All you have to do is email them and explain the situation and they will reset your account. I just upgraded my hard drive to a SSD and they had the account reset by the next morning. This was with the free account. I also have a paid account and it is likewise limited to 2 installs. Their highest level membership I believe give you 4 installs. I opened the free account because I like the program as a easily searchable librarian for my vast sample collection and I needed to use it on a couple of more computers than my paid account allowed.

    CTRL+L Mistake

    Did you try Ctrl-Z "undo" multiple times if necessary ? Or look at edit-history and select a point before the undesired changes were made.
  14. I use Loopcloud every day. If I can't find a sound I like, they make it easy to find that one sound and be able to purchase that sound without having to buy a bundle of sounds, most of which I'll never use. Being able to audition the sounds and apply various manipulations is also helpful.
