  1. From the MOTU website: "You can even take the UltraLite-mk4 on the go as a mobile mixer, controlling everything wirelessly from innovative web app software running on your iPad™, iPhone™, tablet, smartphone and laptop". I don't know if it can be run in complete standalone mode. The user manual seems to suggest it can't (But I'd double check to be sure, as I only skimmed through it quickly).

    Cakewalk and Xpand!2

    Works fine here as well. Maybe you got a corrupt download? Try downloading it again.
  3. Are you saying a factory reset is not possible? Otherwise, here ya go: https://soundprogramming.net/synthesizers/e-mu/e-mu-proteus-fx/

    My devices/interface

    If you were on Win10 before with no problems, then the Fast Track drivers should not be suddenly misbehaving with the same O.S. Something else on your new system (not related to your interface drivers) is conflicting with something else. Try these for starters: Disable power mgmt stuff in the BIOS (If you're comfortable navigating the BIOS). New systems have a lot of crap pre-installed. In startup, disable everything you don't recognize (Nothing here is critical, you can easily undo them). Temporarily disable wi-fi and anti-virus. Run latencymon to identify any background tasks that are taking up lots of resources. Connect your interface to a different USB port. The Fast Track is USB2, so stick with that over USB3. Let us know how it goes!
  5. Here are a couple of YouTube vids on using the Behringer x32 with CbB: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aWlqEXRYW8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYdPXoNCA7U
  6. Have you tried switching to the other graphics option to see if you get the same behavior?

  8. Su Sure thing! (Insert clever hand-shaking emoticon). BTW, you go me seriously thinking about the PW manager. Well, there goes my weekend! Lol. Cheers!
  9. Huh? I've worked in corporate IT for almost 30 years; I know exactly how password managers work. Nowhere in my post did I say my method was BETTER than a PW manager. I started with a spreadsheet and just never got around to switching to a PW manager. Call it laziness or I just didn't see the point. I did suggest using a PW manager to OP... Why in the world did you take offense? Did you think I was maligning your post? The 20th century bit was a joke (off your 21st century comment). Just tell me what I said wrong, and I'll apologize... 😕
  10. Yep, I guess I'm just 20th century as I keep all my passwords in a spreadsheet (which is encrypted and regularly backed up). Even writing down your login info in a small paper notebook is preferable to relying on your system to remember passwords. The latter is just waiting for disaster to happen and holds the user hostage to that system. If it were me, I'd spend a few hours recording all my passwords to a document or PW manager -- the sooner the better.
  11. I'm on Win 10 Pro. Latest CbB version: 2021.01 (Build 085) Once I create the controller device - by default called ACT MIDI Controller 1 - the ACT and WAI check boxes are both there and checked. Clicking the Help button on this page brings up CW documentation and a screenshot that seems to confirm this is what you should be seeing. After the above step, go to the main page of CbB, then by clicking on Utilities (top toolbar), the ACT controller is available at the very bottom. Clicking on that allows you to configure the device further. So if you're not at least seeing the above, something probably isn't set up quite right. Did you try Run as Admin? As far as what you're seeing in Sonar 8.5/VS, I don't know if any programming changes have been made to ACT up to CbB, so I can't help there. Hopefully one of the CW staff can chime in. Wouldn't hurt for you to submit a support ticket. Jon
  12. Hi Frank, Okay, here's what I did to make the VS-100 appear as ACT controller: Open Preferences page. On the left under MIDI, click on Control Services. On the right page, click the icon for Add New Controller Surface (To the extreme right of Import ACT Data button). In Controller/Surface Settings -- choose ACT MIDI Controller (If that's what you want), and Control VS-100 for your input and output. Click OK to exit settings. WAI and ACT boxes should now be checked next to your new controller device. That's as far as I've tested. If this didn't answer your question, let me know what you need and I'll test further. -Jon
  13. I have a VS-100 I keep as a backup interface sitting in the closet. Short of a quick connection test on my DAW system (Win 8.1) I haven't done much with it on CbB. I can dig it out and install on my Win 10 machine to test, but I won't be able to report back until this evening. In the meanwhile, can you confirm that -- You're running on Win10, fully updated (or no later than one major update behind). You've installed Roland driver 2.02 for Win 10. You are running CbB with RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR. (Always worth trying when having problems with an older, discontinued interface). If interface is installed via USB3 port, try a USB2 port instead if possible.
  14. If it's an "off the shelf" computer than it needs to be tweaked for DAW use. Start with disabling all the unnecessary crap in your startup folder, then reboot your system. If that doesn't help, then find a guide to Win 10 DAW Optimization (Lots of them online), follow the instructions, and see what happens.
