  1. Thats the one thing I miss from StudioOne, seing total latency used, as well as on each track as well. Protools cover this very well too. As I recall Reaper do it on the plugin chain loaded on a track. Bakers, please give us pdc used, would help immensely feeling in control when doing late recordings in the mixing process more than anything. All we got now is guesswork.....
  2. A bit unclear if those tracks are programmed or recorded live. Anyway - midi tracks can have timebase that follow tempo or not. You can lock clip in absolute time - having clip anchored in position or both position and length - as absolute time or tempo/grid. But normal is musical time following tempo and the grid. But don't really see how you change by accident though, on one. But one way playback does not follow the grid. But it is possible to record free wheeling without notice to tempo and have that kept, disregarding what grid says or tempo say. Then you can adjust to grid in Cakewalk, or rather the other way around, set a certain pos to a bar no.
  3. Check what is actually sent to instrument with TrackDiag here http://www.tencrazy.com/gadgets/mfx/ The one to troubleshoot live midi input, install PortDiag. Very useful and a good start, I think.
  4. Programming midi and recording is different things. Look at recording modes, or whatever they call it, in preferences to replace, overwrite or soundonsound, whatever term. So that is why it is replaced, is my guess....
  5. I think so too - it's easy to forget that all plugins and instruments does not need to run realtime - use freeze options. Your cpu benchmark at about 6000 and a new i9-9900k about 18000 - but translate that into project it might mean 50% larger project is my estimate. It's not 3 times bigger. https://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html My old i7-860 benchmark at 5000, and have no issues running projects live plugins to about 50 tracks or so. And Cakewalk freeze is the best in the business, so quick to go back and forth. Even multi out VST instruments are cool. Troublefree daw also depend on soundcards used, and maybe look at that part too is an option. It's nothing like RME internal cards and I run HDSP 9632 at 64 samples as I mention above, no issues with crackles and pops.
  6. I just prefer external midi gear - synths and modules. - it usually is real fun and nice way of making own sounds - knobs on everything - does not compare to VST instruments - less load on cpu, but takes more analog inputs on computer - until recorded to audio clips - and usually a power on button - and sit and fool around a bit - lower threashold to actually use the gear Drums and some sample libraries are inevitable though. Everything that requires tweaking - EXTERNAL.....
  7. Hi Sometimes listen to various stuff in background while browsing Cakewalk forum - and playback suddenly become Donald Duck, every page load? Does anybody have a clue what that is about? Nothing is played back as far as I know, or is there some sound effect or something not obvious? It does not happend anywhere else on internet. Thanks.
  8. Don't get your hopes up. I bought Notion 6.5 to go with StudioOne - and it fails even to navigate midi files I have. I had a couple of bars it completely loose navigation and result was not usable. StudioOne played them alright though, just Notion - so that code into StudioOne maybe will fail as well. Notion even less succeed in splitting a midi file into two staves - for grand piano staff, or whatever they called it. Track had to be named Piano or anything twohanded you have recorded cannot be presented as two staves - at import only, or if recording directly into Notion. In Cakewalk staff view this is as easy as anything - just select bass+treble clef or whatever it was called, and select which note to split it on - done. And you can go back and forth changing until you get best readability for that notation. Staff view has so much going for it - it's such a pity it does not get more attention from bakers. As long as I had 4/4 signature and no triplets - I had really good use of it from Sonar 4 onwards. But taking drums lessons and starting to do more interesting time signatures - triplets stuff - it cannot be used. Not ordinary shuffle even.
  9. Download the trackdiag och portdiag mfx plugins here and see what is going on http://www.tencrazy.com/gadgets/mfx/ PortDiag is for realtime monitoring what is coming in, and TrackDiag capture what is played back. Very useful. Just insert on midi track plugin bay. Unless you were tweaking realtime as I read your post before, I cannot see how that would be happening. Some information is missing in how you did things. Have you set recording manual offset in config for audio device? Are PDC activated as you record or turned off on toolbar buttons? I do almost solely external midi gear, 4 synths, hammond and a digital piano, and never saw that. If your hear in realtime that audio from synth react, why should it not record audio as such? Or are you rerecording midi first, or something? Just an audio track and it does not sound right from synth if one track is armed for recording, and record is going on? Is midi cc separate midi track, or together with notes as recorded before? I set midi tracks negative time+ so audio from synth line up with grid where midi is, did you do that? I have separate values for each synth how much time is needs to respond, from 100 samples to 400 samples or so. Set in ticks on track. Please fill us in on more details....
  10. Updated 2020.01 to 2020.05 this weekend and have some strange behavior. #1. Soloing a bus - mutes metronome I can solo any number of tracks no problem. But if I turn on Dim on solo - then metronome comes back. Have not checked all options - but I only have for count in, so neither playback or record are checked. I checked output, it was on Analog1+2 on hardware, same as master goes to. Changed to master for metronome, but no different. #2. recorded midi - much too often it truncates the last bar as recorded. I know I played another bar before hitting spacebar, and I could even see it truncated. It was longer before hitting spacebar. I did not check if it just used another take in comp lanes or something. I did maybe a dozen takes, then undo with Ctrl Z and recorded again. Recording mode comp. #3. Strange things happend - and suddenly lead vocal track seemed slided so first line of vers was gone. Clip looked normal position. I also found that Start marker I always have at 5.01 was gone. And other markers were nudged 800 ticks or something. They did not line up on the grid. I luckily had a backup I reverted to from 2 days ago - that made this back to normal. Not sure if I pressed something, I forgot which modifier were to activate Solo override, tried Ctrl and Alt before finding Shift. That is all I know I did. I will see if doing the same things in my Sonar Artist 2015 works on the same project, to see if I can narrow down a bit. If anybody experienced similar, please share.
  11. Not sure I follow so just ignore if I got it wrong - you play back notes in clips with midi to external synth while touching synth knobs in realtime to add filter changes, and record final audio? a) or are you using other controller that sending a certain midi cc - thinking extra delay routes this travels? b) how large are asio buffers if the realtime delay is significant? c) this using "local off" in synth and roundtrip monitor midi cc through Cakewalk - or "local on" where knob directly control parameter in synth? There is a setting to disable that local off is sent when project load "SendLocalOff=<0 or 1> Boolean 1 (enable) This line determines whether or not Cakewalk should send a Local Control OFF message during startup."
  12. True, I ran Cakewalk Pro 3.0 late 80's and as MSDOS and it had sysex manager already then. StudioOne does not even support sysex at all, not for recording or anything. I had to go to extensive length with plugins that could program to send initializing to various midi gear as I load a project. My Yamaha piano had mixed midi CC and sysex as initialized so recorded in Sonar and used special plugins. Midi editing in StudioOne - you cannot remove midi CC at all. I had unwanted CC1 as I was playing a keyboard, mod wheel just moved, I had to move midi to Sonar to remove it. You cannot remove first value of CC in StudioOne, even if node is deleted. Some handling of chords and chord track etc is very useful in StudioOne though.
  13. I moved from StudioOne back to Cakewalk due to that all midi recording of CC is forced to automation, that was a showstopper for me. It means that first move of a control like filter attack on synth or leslie on organ always was sent at beginning of clip. So even having the actual midi CC 2 bars in from clip start - this is interpreted as initial value and sent not where recorded but at beginning of clip. In Cakewalk it remains data as long as you want, no problems at all. And you can convert to automation style if you want. Just FYI.....
  14. MFX Velocity plugin is useful for many such operations too. You can scale, limit or add and many things to velocity. A midi effect, MFX, can be run on a selection by Process Effect - or inserted on midi tracks for realtime processing.
  15. Did you look at ScreenSets, this is pretty much what it is for? A module on transport toolbar have 10 buttons to swap in a flash. So make one for default to revert to.
