    Great! Glad to hear that you got it working. You may have had a corrupt file somewhere. That's what I would have done; clear out the Cakewalk registry entries and all the config files. Best, Jerry www.jerrygerber.com

    Yes, I always leave the note resolution on 1/32. I've tested this multiple times using different note values. It's definitely working properly on my machine. If I turn snap off it defaults to 1/32 resolution (snap resolution) and if I turn it on it snaps to whichever note value I choose. I guess the next thing I'd try is to uninstall CW and download it again and reinstall it. Let me know what happens. Maybe also delete some configuration files pertaining to MIDI before reinstalling, although you'd have to reconfigure some settings.. p.s. I've now tested this on 2 machines and snap is working properly on the staff view for both...

    Yes, that is the global snap, on the control bar. It's working properly on my DAW. Hmm, it should be working on yours. Try turning global snap off and then back on. Are you sure you are running the newest version? It just got released yesterday.

    Installing Cakewalk

    Thank you msmcleod for clarifying how to save a backup of Cakewalk. That was easy... Jerry

    Installing Cakewalk

    But if I uninstall CW then I cannot have it open while downloading it again because I've uninstalled it!I'm not understanding what you mean... Is it possible to download the app and be able to save Cakewalk. exe without uninstalling it?

    Installing Cakewalk

    Hey scook, I don't mean to be trouble, but I'm not sure what you mean. When I open Cakewalk (the latest version) and then open Bandlab Assistant, BA only gives me the option to open the program (even though it's already open). BA won't initiate a download because (I think) it detects that I have the latest version installed. Do I have to uninstall Cakewalk first? Sorry, I am confused...

    Installing Cakewalk

    So I gather that means no, it's not possible to to retain a backup . exe file on my computer?
  8. Is it possible to download an actual . exe file to retain for backup purposes? I might need to revert to an earlier version of the program. The Bandlab Assistant does not seem to allow for this. Thanks, Jerry

    I hope you turned on the snap on the control bar..I just tried it and it's working properly. Finally, after years of neglect the notation editor is repaired.
  10. Uh-oh. Someone ought to punish me. I puntificated one too many times!
  11. Well, Michael, that really is good news, thank you for sharing that with me. I know there are many people in this world who are motivated by other things than money and profit. If what you say is true, and I have no reason to doubt it, that's great for all of us. I too choose to write music that I want to write after spending 12 years writing soundtracks that paid very well. I couldn't justify the reward (financial) for the musical and intellectual compromises I had to make. So I understand very well when a person can, and does, decide to involve themselves in a labor of love. What drove me away from Sonar was one thing: The snap function in the staff view. Now that its been fixed, I have "fallen in love" with Cakewalk again. My 1.5 years with Digital Performer made me realize how superior Cakewalk is in so many ways, and I've come to believe it is the most under-rated and under-recognized DAW on the market. More power to Bandlab for keeping such a great DAW available not only for free, but still fixing bugs and adding features. Best, Jerry
  12. Thanks msmcleod, I'm just learning the Arranger section so it may be user-error. I am figuring it out... Jerry

    1st movement, Symphony #11

    Thanks for listening David. Yes, Dune is the only synth in this movement. Jerry
  14. I'm finding that when I open Preferences-Themes, Cakewalk takes quite a while, about 30 seconds, to open the Themes dialogue box. It's always been instantaneous in earlier versions I've used. This only happens right after I open CW for the first time. Any subsequent attempts to open Preferences-Themes is instantaneous, as expected.
  15. I am having same issue, renaming doesn't work and the dialogue box gets stuck. The dialogue box in the arranger track seems very buggy. Cannot change colors. I have to undo to get it to disappear. Even when I minimize Cakewalk to write on this forum, the arranger dialogue box doesn't disappear. Nuts! I was hoping to learn this new feature quickly but too many bugs to even try to use it...I have a fairly new machine with Intel graphics card. DXdiag doesn't show any problems.. Section Type must be defined, I think that was the issue...
  16. I'm having issues with the arranger track. Maybe it's my error? I cannot rename tracks and the arranger dialogue screen gets stuck. The only way to remove it is to undo everything. Am I missing something? When I click on rename, nothing happens... I think I have to choose a section type first, then it seems to be working.. Is this correct?
  17. Hi fellow Cakewalk musicians, I had planned on spending the year writing vocal music. I started the year writing two pieces, and then the pandemic hit. Since it's impossible to bring singers into the studio to record (I'm in California which is currently seeing large increases in cases and deaths) and I'm not keen on trying to set things up remotely, I just canned the idea and started a new instrumental piece that doesn't need players or singers. Scored for VSL Orchestral Cube and Dune (softsynth). I hope you enjoy listening! PLAY
  18. Hi, Does anybody know which folder Cakewalk stores the workspace files? Thanks, Jerry
  19. Not sure what you mean. I just opened up Z3TA-2 and Breverb and they work fine. I paid for those separate from Sonar. As far as the other plugins that come with Sonar I am still using the Sonitus plugins. After completely uninstalling Sonar, and reinstalling Cakewalk, the Sonitus plugins are also working fine.
  20. I think Cakewalk, particularly the new version about to be released that fixed the long-overdue problem with snap in the staff view (which I've tested and works great), will be sufficient and I won't need to use Sonar. After Gibson destroyed Sonar, I backed up all of my Sonar installation files, put them on a CD and put them in a safety deposit box in the bank. But now, I doubt I'll need them. By the way, I don't quite get how Bandlab is giving a $400 program away for free. I could understand it if they were just making it available, but the fact that they are fixing bugs and adding new features makes me wonder. Nobody gives away such sophisticated software for free, well, almost nobody. Do you think they'll start charging for it soon (which if OK with me) or is there some catch somewhere? I do notice that the end-user doesn't really have a copy of Cakewalk, there's no .exe file to hold onto. Best, Jerry
  21. I fixed it, but a little differently. I like to keep my DAW lean and thin. Any program or files I don't use eventually get removed. So I uninstalled Cakewalk (current version), uninstalled Sonar and reinstalled Cakewalk. Everything is working fine. Sonar doesn't need to be installed, but if shared files are removed that causes the issue. By reinstalling Cakewalk, all the shared files are restored. Thanks Scook..
  22. Hi, Tonight I installed Cakewalk, everything's working fine. I then proceeded to uninstall Sonar Platinum, and now when I open Cakewalk, I get two messages: 1. Database Error--Database connection failed. Assigned plugin categories and names will be unavailable. 2. Database Update Failed--The database update utility failed to run. Please verify that Cakewalk is installed correctly. What shall I do? Thanks, Jerry
