  1. I've never been asked to activate when opening Cakewalk until the last update. A big red warning came up saying NOT ACTIVATED. I was like, what is this?
  2. I used the word "if". I'm not asserting, I'm speculating. I was under the assumption that Cakewalk could continue to be used, just that it wouldn't be available for download anymore. Then I had people commenting that it was going away completely and that is why they recently started requiring online activation. So it would make sense to wonder "if". What other reason do you think they instituted online activation? I'm open to any theories.
  3. Even if you can save it, if it's going to require online activation, you're sol.
  4. Yep, that's exactly what happened. I needed to move things around to temporarily accommodate a usb sd card reader to download the latest update for my Roland td-17kvx v drums. And I did learn to power up the drums and my Korg M50 before starting up Cakewalk. Thanks for replying.
  5. When I go into preferences, midi devices, I used to see the following in inputs and ouputs: Focusrite USB-MIDI. TD-17 Now I see: 2 - Focusrite USB-MIDI. 2 - TD-17 These are my audio interface and e drums. Everything is working fine but I'm just wondering what this means. Thank you.
  6. Lol. I'm just glad I've got it sorted out now. Having another brain look at the problem helps. Thanks again man Yeah, those were the right manuals. So I got one problem solved and of course another one comes up. Trying to figure how to record my e drums using si drums vst where each drum piece gets its own track.

  8. John, I unplugged the usb and yes! I was able to record the combi sound to an audio track. I have my Korg connected to a Focusrite scarlett 4i4 interface with 5 pin midi cables. I also have the Korg 1/4 inch outputs going into the L and R instrument inputs on the 4i4. Just this week I added the USB connection in order to run the M50 plugin editor vst. Can't thank you enough for pointing out something so simple to fix my problem. With all these connections and daw software, sometimes you miss the forest for the trees. Again, a million thanks.
  9. Thanks but I have all the manuals. Can't find anywhere that my particular issue is addressed.
  10. I have usb into my computer and the Korg's 1/4 inch outputs into my audio interface. Maybe I need to unplug the usb.
  11. Hello. I'm trying to figure out how to record Korg M50 combi sounds to Cakewalk. If you're familiar with the Korg, there are prog and combi sounds. I know how to record prog sounds (midi) but the combi sounds are composed of multiple sounds. I tried recording to an audio track but it crashes Cakewalk. To record in midi, I believe I'd need to create a separate midi track for each individual sound that comprises the combi sound, but I'm just not sure. So I'm reaching out to all the pros out there to help out an extreme amateur. Thank you very much.
  12. This is what I need to do with my Korg M50's plugin editor vst. I can only load one instance of the editor. The editor is a vst of the M50 so I can select the prog, combi, drums, etc. If possible, could you tell me what to enter in my inputs, outputs, channels in the vst and midi tracks? I'm trying to figure this out and I can see you've got a good handle on doing this. I really appreciate if you could help me. Thanks in advance. Also which tracks would I arm for recording? The vst, the midi, both? Thanks again.
  13. Heck, I couldn't wait. It worked! I think the reason I couldn't find the answer is that I wasn't looking for track height. I was using track size. Thanks a million my friend.
  14. About to go to sleep but I'll try it tomorrow and report back. I very much appreciate you looking into this for me. I knew there had to be an answer. Thanks again.
