    V-Vocal launch crashes CbB

    I have Melodyne assistant, but still prefer to use V-Vocal. For me to prevent it from crashing, I have to disconnect all soft synths. Then save and close the file and double click the file to reopen it. You can't go from one file to the V-Vocal file, you must close CbB first then reopen it by double clicking the file. Doing this seems to clear out the RAM. Once I do that V-Vocal never crashes. It seems to have something to do with RAM. My template with the soft synths uses 3.5 gigs of RAM. After I tune a clip I bounce it to track to eliminate V-Vocal. I only work in small clips and it never crashes working this way with CbB.
  2. Check my original top post and try the test I outlined and let us know if it works for you. I don't think It has anything to do with drive access, since I can set up a new song with those sorts of different HD's in the box. It's only when I want to change this after the song is created.
  3. I've been using the same sort of audio path's as you have, using different HD's. Sonar didn't have this problem. Wish they'd fix it.
  4. Thanks Max, it turns out now I can't get it to misbehave. I know I closed and reopened CbB and it still did it. Then I again closed and reopened and tried it on a blank template - it did it. I then tried 2020.04 and it was fine. I thought sure I rebooted the computer, maybe I didn't but now it's not doing this. Sorry for the false alarm. But thank also for the cool tip of delete all Env on that bus. Edit-> select special Click env’s. I've used that for tracks but not a bus. That's a handy trick. If it does happen again that will be the first thing I try
  5. 2020.05 is not working correctly with Bus automation. Many times I add an automation envelope to my main output bus. Even though the envelope shows the current level, the volume widget shows -INF, as soon as I hit play. If I use this widget to write new envelope nodes with my mouse I can hear the sound, but as soon as I let the mouse go the volume jumps back down to -INF. I also tried this on my template. I then went back to 2020.04 and it worked fine.
  6. You say "if I delete some of the instruments". Do you mean you delete all the soft synths or some? Or delete other TS-1's? What exactly are you deleting?
  7. Hey abacab thanks for the old Cakewalk account link. I assumed after 2 years of CbB, it would not work anymore. I know Noel said we'd have access to that for a while but couldn't say how long. I hope it's permanent. Although it's doubtful I'd need it since I have downloaded the files on a regular basis over the years and still have all my CD's and DVD's, since 1992. It's still very good for all the users in case they need something. With my initial problems with TTS-1, I was wondering if I needed to download something, but I've got it working fine now. My suspicion is since the crash was happening as soon as you'd hit a midi note on your keyboard that it had something to do with the settings on the midi track, most likely the midi input.
  8. Thanks for the detailed post. I checked plugin manager to see what DLL I was using and the only one that's in the 64 bit shared DXi folder is the latest one 2018 like you have. I then loaded the default normal template from 2017 and TTS-1 works fine with that. Then I tried again the song I wanted the TTS-1 on and this time it worked - no crash. This is surprising after 2 crashes in a row and all the other posts of the same crash problem. So it appears there's something a little quirky about this plugin. For my future reference I documented the steps I took to get it to work. Possibly this will help someone else in the future. Some of this is unique to my setup like the MOTU midi interface and the Ivory output OPEN TTS-1 IN SYNTH RACK CHOOSE DEFAULTS GO TO AUDIO TRACK AND CHOOSE IVORY OUTPUT GO TO MIDI TRACK AND CHOOSE MOTU MIDI AND CHANNEL - 1-TTS 1 OPEN TTS-1 WINDOW CHOOSE PRESET PUT ACTIVE TRACK ON MIDI TRACK - PLAY So Craig Anderton, I don't need the DX wrapper. maybe it's already being used by CbB. I've rarely used this plugin, but after that endorsement by Craig, I'll definitely check it out more.
  9. I'm not sure what you mean by "only send it through one or two audio FX plug-ins and one or two spectrum analysis plug-ins" What I've tried is to open the Synth rack and hit the + button and add the TTS-1. I can then change the preset, but as soon as I hit a note on my keyboard it crashes. Others have reported the exact same thing in this thread with no solution. If you can outline what steps you take to make this work I'd appreciate it
  10. Craig, after looking at this long thread, it seems you are the only one who has a solution and are successfully using it with CbB. Can you tell us how to use the DX wrapper so we can use the TTS-1? I have a project that needs Steel Drums and after opening TTS-1 several times and choosing the Steel Drums and then having it instantly crash when I hit a midi note on my keyboard. I went ahead and tried the last Sonar Platinum and it works fine there and actually is an excellent Steel Drum sound. I have almost every version of CbB and tried this on the very first one April 2018 and got the same crash. I do have the 64 bit and 32 bit versions installed, so I'd love to try the DX wrapper, so I can use it. Please help.
  11. This bug has been going on since the first CbB version. All Sonar Platinum versions worked correctly without this bug. I have always had Splat and CbB open with my custom template. In the past I could just start working on the new song after opening Splat. And then save the song specifying the CWP folder and the audio folder. Since I record tons of songs, I prefer to keep all my CWP files together in 1 folder on my E drive and each one has it's own wav file folder stored on my D drive. This works fine when choosing File/New, but doesn't work when I open CbB to my template and hit save as. I tried in vain to get this fixed using email support. I wish we'd hear from Cakewalk about this long standing issue.
  12. Thanks for putting some light back on this issue. I'm not sure if Noel or any of the other main guys are even aware of this. Email support was worthless on this issue
  13. T his all makes sense now, except I'm still curious how older Platinum versions can work without Launchpad. Do they use W130auto.dll? I also have Sonar 8.5, is hta tok too?
  14. I understand why I should use Launchpad with 2019.09 and any later versions, because of CW130auto.dll. And I see only 2 CW130auto.dll in the "sub" folder. So how is Launchpad handling 2019.07 and all earlier versions of CbB? It seems like it would need all those versions of CW130auto.dll in the sub folder also.
