  1. I installed the hotfix today and it corrected the audio engine freaking out (disconnecting constantly) but I get the attached error when I close a file. It's otherwise working great. Probably unrelated. LOL. _11302019_205645.dmp
  2. I've often have this problem where I export some song to wave and it's either blank, noise or only a short section. I can do it again and it's fine without changing anything. One difference is that a problem export with be very quick, maybe 10-20 seconds for 4 minutes of music. A good export is always far slower taking maybe 60 seconds. Sometimes I can do something like move a volume control a small amount and it will then export fine, or close Cakewalk and do it again. There is nothing in particular I can put my finger on. If it fail, just do it again and will *probably* work. Anyone else run into this?
  3. No worries. I truly appreciate the help (from everyone.) V-Vocal actually does what I want and I like using it but I ran into this split issue and I was scared and confused. I checked out Melodyne but for the cost I didn't see it as worth moving to ... yet. Update: I need to read up on Automation. If I delete the volume automation, the V-vocal (after rendering) works like I expect - perfectly. That volume automation is what was making it all goofy. Deleted it and all is fine. I can re-automate after I edit.
  4. Not sure of your question, but I normally have several clips on a track that I created either by recording or copy/paste. I would V-Vocal some or all of the clips as needed. This the first time I’ve had one long clip that was V-Vocal’d so when I went to split it I was surprised I couldn’t. Ok, learned something new. I rendered it and started splitting. I deleted (after I determined I had to use Cut) some clips and started copy and pasting but that didn’t always work and I couldn’t nudge them using the pull down or nun keys. The clips wouldn’t always highlight to tell you which one was about to be affected until you right clicked. I removed the region from the long clip and everything is smooth. I will V-Vocal each clip after I am done editing. When I get a chance I’ll see what I was doing wrong, but it wasn’t obvious to me. While I could split a rendered clip, cut and paste was random. I also noticed the V-Vocal label would disappear on some tracks after rendering but not others even though I could split them. I was thinking I might have some hidden layers but couldn’t find them. I just need to remember to leave the magazine at Witt’s End.
  5. So for the two tracks, I rendered them which then allows me to split them (each in several places.) However, I can't select any section to delete or select a section to copy. Sometimes it will highlight a section but I can't really do anything to it. I've been reading the manual but I don't get what is happening. Was I wrong to use V-Vocal before I copied and pasted sections? Is that not possible once you've used V-Vocal? I am missing something here. Edit: Ok, I notice the section will highlight AFTER I right click on it, but selecting delete doesn't delete it. The highlight goes away once I click Edit-Delete but it's still there. Edit 2!: Cut does cut the section. Delete doesn't. Final: I removed the regions themselves and I can edit them as I expect it to work. I'll redo any V-Vocals once I am happy with the editing.
  6. When I select a position and right click, Split is grayed out. Hmmm
  7. Yes, the days of the Sansui 6 track! I have two I slaved together but I want to transfer to CbB.
  8. Yes but I didn’t see anything that says to use Track 12 for midi sync (as an example.) I think it would need CbB to use two different clocks. One to run the audio and then use the sync track to run the midi. it would allow us to copy our old tape-based audio with a sync track to CbB with the midi tracks. Right now I have just been copying the audio to wave tracks and then sliding them around. Surprisingly they stay in sync even though they are just free-wheeling.
  9. I have a feeling this will be the blind leading the blind, but ... Can I get CbB to sync to an audio track that has midi or SMPTE time code? I have some old audio tapes and one track is the sync track. I would like to get the midi tracks to chase the time code track. I import all tracks and then make one audio track the time base. I've already thought of several reasons why this might not work but if CbB's time base can be controlled from that track, it might work assume it keeps the audio tracks timing separate. I looked in preferences and didn't see anything that would allow it. "It's just so crazy it might work!"
  10. Yeah, I think there is some factor we’re not accounting for. I used to do this regularly in Sonar all the way back to CfW.
  11. Well, that explains the sudden x-ray vision ...
  12. I've been using Cakewalk since the first DOS version by Greg H back in the 20th century. However, free is synonymous with "catch." There is a catch coming, but until then I love CbB. But I will drop back to Sonar if the "other shoe" that drops is a big one.
  13. Midi copy and paste is weird. I can do clip loops but just selecting a measure to copy and paste results in the first paste being a couple of ticks later than I specify. If I do multiple measure of paste, each one is a couple of ticks later than the prior one. For example, if I paste a measure at 7:01:000 it actually pastes at 7:01:003. If I tell it to paste 10 times, the second one is at 8:01:006, then 9:01:009, etc. I don't know why it shifts it out. Not sure I am making any sense ... And the function to snap to measure doesn't always. A tutorial on non-clip loop copy and paste would be nice.
