  1. Thanks! Fixed: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3o3j5oqwhbck31q/Flat Minimalistic and Dark 1.01.sth?dl=0
  2. A huge part of mixing on speakers is that you don't keep your head precisely fixed in one place. You get a sort of 'averaged' impression of the sound at different points because you're constantly on the move.
  3. I created them at WebKnobman. There's a learning curve but once you figure it out you can whip up whatever you want.
  4. Folks were having difficulties running Sonar and the Blackbird 11 years ago. http://forum.cakewalk.com/m/tm.aspx?m=2171451&p=1 I mean....think it's time to upgrade.
  5. V-Vocal was prone to crashing at least once or twice on the best of days.
  6. Camel Crusher is 32 bit only afaik so...are you running a 32 bit Windows or using a bit bridge or...?
  7. Dodgy power at a garden party led to running 100 feet of garden cords in series....the voltage sag at the end of the line, my Fender tube amp, was hilarious. Lay into a chord and it just lost all oomph. You could literally watch the speaker cone flapping.

  9. The Blackbird came with a mixer utility. Have you checked and made sure it's not introducing a delay? The BB was a firewire 🔥 interface and that protocol is mighty long in the tooth. Might want to find a new USB interface and utilize your Onxy channels via ADAT.
  10. Just to clarify, the meters work fine when the plugin is instantiated either in FX bin or in PC. What buggers up the meter is opening a preset. That toggles the plugin "off" and freezes the meter. Only way to unfreeze the meter is to delete and re-instantiate. I checked in Reaper and it does not exhibit this behavior with the meter nor plugin on/off when a preset is selected. Reaper has no equivalent for the Pro Channel, of course. So... I think it's somewhat Cake specific but as you say presumably it's Softube's bug to fix.
  11. Highly recommend Vic Firth isolation headphones for vocals tracking. No click bleed, whatsover.
  12. When I insert the FET in the Pro Channel, it works fine except the meter doesn't move. Also, when selecting a new preset it toggles the PC slot "off" is that a bug or. ..?

  14. If the Sampson speakers connect via USB, the conversion is being done in them. Not an ideal scenario.
  15. I'm guessing Rene Ceballos had a hand in it. Cyclone was first included with Sonar 1. And don't forget RXP Rex Player and Drop Zone...
  16. This is why more fully featured preamps have a -20 dB pad option...
  17. Clearly aimed at the Tik Tok demographic. The dumbing down of humanity races full speed ahead...
  18. The product manager keeps hanging during the download process. A fail so far.
  19. Interesting, inasmuch as I have not had this problem in CbB but I have had it crop up in Reaper. Slightly different, though. The clicks, pops and crackles were recorded along with random parts. So, it was not just the playback, it was baked into the wave when recording. In that case (Reaper), I turned off the ReaVerb convo plugin during tracking... enabled it for mixing and rendering...and it cleaned right up. Reaper also has settings in Options>Preferences>Buffering that you can mess with. Surprisingly, I found suggestions that some of the buffer settings yield better results at lower-than-default buffer values. Anyways, not relevant to CbB but when someone said they were thinking of switching to Reaper, it made me chuckle.
  20. Someone peed in his Wheaties.
  21. Re. Feedback with input echo, use headphones for tracking and mute the monitors (speakers).
  22. Ah yes, Pentagon I "Performance- Oriented Synthesizer ". Those old synths were fun but all things change.
