    PC Upgrade Question (not sure where to post this)

    Thanks for the insights guys, much appreciated.
  3. Hi guys, so here's one for the hardware gurus: I run an Intel I7-7700 3.6Gz chip Asus Prime Z270-K board, 2 x 8GB Corsair 2133 DDR4 Gaming RAM, Kingston 1TB SSD 400 MB/s for OS Seagate 7200 RPM 2TB SSHD drive for audio and project. External usb3 for samples OS is Win 10 Pro x 64 Soundcard is RME HDSP9652 PCi running Asio So my question is this: Which components do I need to take a look at to improve each of the following scenarios? 1: Faster Bouncing and Freezing of tracks 2: Faster Loading of projects with large plugin and track counts. 3: Ability to run more tracks and plugins before buffer has to be enlarged Looking at the Windows performance monitor, Freezing tracks only hits around 20% of the CPU and Disk usage is negligible. Mixing down hits around 59% of CPU with Disks doing very little as well. I look forward to hearing from you guys, thanks in advance!

    Sound on Sound Review

    I stand corrected Glad to hear SOS hasn't taken the route so many others have.

    Paying customers always come first, IMO.. Don't think money doesn't change hands to get reviews.

    Project load issue in 2019.07

    Sorry to hear about your problems, but I just opened a 125 track mix with a zillion plugins on it and it runs fine.
  8. Hi Fogle, it is indeed a tremendous honour, thanks so much - I have never worked on a track that gained 4 million youtube views in under a week (never mind the initial broadcast!). Truly bizarre! I am based in South Africa, in the capital city Pretoria. My humble studio is www.onebigroom.co.za and I do this for a living. At that time, only the initial audition track (The song African Dream) was recorded with me along with some musical bits and pieces which I did not hear on the show, and that happened a good few months ago. That episode was filmed early May I think. I have no idea what the arrangement was beyond that but it certainly seemed to me that Ralf Schmitt, the producer/conductor, felt they only had that one very small moment to prove themselves. I did speak to him a week or so after that filming and all he said was, "Standing ovation - we've been called back to LA! Gotta run!".. You can imagine what his inbox looks like now! That's all the info I actually have for now - I hope they do well, it's a very deserving project.
  9. I'm not sure to be honest! I have no idea what was used and what wasn't. This show's auditions are filmed quite a bit before the time, but the non-disclosure agreements are as watertight as they can be.. The choir conductor won't tell anyone anything !
  10. Drums, bass, perc and guitar recorded in Cakewalk by your's truly. As seen on AGT last night:

    Nice article on Cakewalk and BandLab

    I'm seeing a considerable uptake in CbB chatter on Facebook. Quite a few recording and sound engineering groups have mentioned it in the last while. Many former users are however still not aware of CbB's rebirth, and I think the quickest way to educate the masses is for us users to spread the word on these FB groups.

    Cakewalk Platinum or Free

    CbB is just MILES above Platinum. But yes, install SPlat so you get the plugs.

    Not everyone has a Meng looking out for them...

    Link fixed, thanks!

    One Year of Cakewalk by BandLab Celebration

    Using Cakewalk keeps my lights on and my bills paid. Faithfully yours since Cakewalk 3.4, which shipped on one 1.44mb stiffy disc. How far we've come!
