  1. Wanted to get back and thank John Vere. This worked exactly as I had hoped. I did a half speed and a quarter speed. There lengthening was quite clean. Was helpful I suppose that I was using a solo piano live solo. Therefore, it was not getting stomped on by the other instruments as they were not playing. Appreciate your help. Regards, Lance
  2. Plenty of uncategorized occurs. I, for one, don’t like visual noise. If you use Native Instruments, how many versions of Kontakt do you see? Extra work for nothing is based on one’s perception of value. Possibly before you making light of another’s choice of organization you should consider how your life is organized.
  3. I remember when Cakewalk had an option in the toolbar to play a song at half speed and 2x. I don’t see that anymore. Does that still exist and I am just overlooking it? Goal: I drag in an audio track I want to learn (piano in my case). I then want to change the play back speed of the entire track when a solo is too fast or there are competing instruments and I need to concentrate on hearing just the piano. I use Cakewalk desktop. Best Regards, Lance
  4. I want to share one more bit of info. I decided to repipe the interaction between the Presonus Fire Studio and the Steinberg UR242. Originally, I used both devices so the UR242 was a volume control and closer to my hands when working. The Fire Studio piped into the UR242. I now have reversed that. All sounds generated by the computer, that are not my studio equipment sounds, roll through the UR242 and pipe to the Fire Studio. Now all sounds can play simultaneously (chaos incurs) and I have the ability to control the input volume from sounds outside of the DAW very easily and everyone plays nicely together. Again, thanks Scook for getting me to think smarter. Regards, Lance
  5. Checking these now. CbB: Presonus Fire Studio: However, when I click Test, it indicates another device has control. Still digging. Steinberg UR242: Click Test works as expected. Monitor 1: Click Test works as expected. Monitor 2: No sound and I don't know that it every did have sound. Melodyne 5: Will not allow me to change the rate. Currently 44.1Khz. iTunes just follows the Windows default. Now, the last thing I searched for was what is the default device for sound? When I did I was presented with a list containing some open apps. It is here that I was able to change from Default to another option for iTunes and Edge browser. In my case the UR242 which bypasses the Presonus Fire Studio and goes straight to the speakers. I know I did not change these settings and therefore, I suspect Windows changed the settings on the major update several days ago. Hopefully, anyone getting stuck with this issue can benefit from the suggestions from Scook and the path I followed to diagnose based on Scook's post. Have a nice weekend. Lance
  6. I feel I used to be able to have iTunes and Cakewalk open at the same time and both would produce sound. It is one of the methods I used to transcribe songs. Listen, figure it out, listen, figure it out, and so on. Today, however, I can only get a single app to play sound and it is the app opened first. If I open a second app there will be no sound until I close the first app. Then the second will respond with sound. This includes other apps like Melodyne and even a browser. It seems that each app or the sound device is taking or offering exclusive use. I have changed anything and I don't see any settings so far that indicate exclusivity it used. Any thoughts?
  7. I could even suggest an additional checkbox for "Ignore disconnected MIDI device". The intention here is that I don't want anything to change. Regards, Lance
  8. For me I setup categories for VST3 and then others. Looks like this. and this It at least narrows down the choices for me. If you are ambitious you could breakout DirectX. Regards, Lance
  9. It would be nice to have Project Templates organized like Track Templates. The SD3 folder contains 65 drum project templates. To use these I have two choices: 1) Navigate to the folder via Windows Explorer and double click the template 2) Put all 65 Project Templates from the SD3 folder into the Project Template root folder The first option is doable, though slow. The second option would make a mess of the root. Regards, Lance
  10. Thanks for all the input on Project vs Track Templates. This all started due to me having a large number (65) of Project Templates from SD3. I just kind of figured it would be easy to utilize should I choose. However, having learned that Project Templates can't be organized, I will just manually add the template as desired manually. Regards, Lance
  11. Thanks for the reply. Using both the Project Template and Track Template based on your reply, I see some differences and understand I probably just need to learn Cakewalk better. If I load via Project template I get this: Via the Track Template I get this (different kit since not copied into Track Templates): I like the way the Project Templates creates the instance. Probably a case where I can do that also but just don't yet have the knowledge. Regards, Lance
  12. One would think so. However.... and they still appear. Regards, Lance
  13. I have a huge selection of Session Drummer 3 project templates that I haven't used. There are so many that I don't want to mix them in with the standard few options for new projects. I would like to keep them organized in their own directory within the project template directory. Apparently, this doesn't work as the subfolder is not visible and I see no way to navigate to it. Has anyone else dealt with this issue and found a solution? Here is how it would look. Regards, Lance
  14. What is the meaning difference between these to vst instrument icons? Regards, Lance
