  1. Oh right. Thanks for the link. And yes, my project is well over 2gb. I was just experimenting exporting it for Cubase. Hmmmm. What I have discovered is CbB audio can be dragged directly into Cubase from the CbB track window. And that multiple clips become combined into a single clip. Which is quite helpful when they need to be placed at a particular time in a Cubase project. Don't ask why I need to do this, the answer would take too long!
  2. Can anyone enlighten me as to what this means?
  3. A few of us have encountered the unexpected crash when too many shortcuts (key bindings) are assigned to 'do nothing'. Following a clean windows install I wanted all CbB's default shortcuts to be wiped and start in effect with a blank template. Why? Because I like to assign my own shortcuts instead of the defaults. I managed to achieve this - see attached file. Having previously identified the codes for each keystroke, i.e. A, B, C, SHIFT+A, B, C and so on, I was able to assign key binding 1067 (do nothing) to all keys. The only exceptions are the default actions such as scroll lock (pause), RTZ (W), record (R) and one or two others. Sanity warning: Do NOT use this file unless you want to wipe ALL your existing key bindings. If you are sure, pop this file into your appdata/roaming/Cakewalk/Cakewalk Core folder. Then in CbB open Preferences, go to Customization - Keyboard Shortcuts and import. SECOND WARNING: This will wipe all your existing shortcuts. It may be a good idea to save them first! It was Astraios who pointed me in that direction after his creation of CALs to achieve the same thing. This is a different way of achieving the same result. CbB Do Nothing.kbn
  4. Scook, I have downloaded a couple of things from your page. Many thanks for the work you've put into this.
  5. Update. For various reasons I needed to do a clean Windows install and....ta da.....SampleTank now works as it should do in CbB. It obviously didn't like something in my system.
  6. Phew. Thanks for the help. I owe you....something....
  7. Hey abacab. Okay. This reminds me of that song that starts ' where do I begin?????' This gets more and more curious...... Opened your file successfully (several times, just to check). Hooray! Saved your file. Opened the saved file successfully. Woopee! Went back to my original project files (there were a few). Opened one, Cakewalk closed down with no minidump created. It doesn't hang, it just closes after it apparently seems to load the file. It does this for projects containing SampleTank outputting directly to hardware and also for those with metronome/preview/master buses. And it's the same behaviour whether it's running as vst2 or vst3. Opened my file again in safe mode. This time I answered yes to the questions about loading SampleTank and GroovePlayer. File opened successfully. That's a first - it hasn't done that before, Cakewalk would just close. Saved my file. Opened it normally. Project loads successfully. Fantastic! But what is going on? It seems that the first time my saved file is loaded it has to be in safe mode. Then when it is saved again there are no further problems with opening it. I'll settle for that. 🙂
  8. Oh thanks. I'm away from the studio but will try them tomorrow although I did intend outs go directly to hardware.
  9. Okay, final word on this. Reinstalled and I still have the same problem. So two possible workarounds:- 1. Open projects containing SampleTank in safe mode and choose not to load GroovePlayer. OR 2. Freeze SampleTank before saving. Project containing frozen SampleTank opens normally. Unfreeze. Very many thanks for everyone's help.
  10. Yes default template, no no metronome customization. I've sent you the two files.
  11. Interface is Yamaha Steinberg UR44. USB connection with its own ASIO driver. Sample rate is 96,000 Hz. It's an i8700 system with 2 x m.2 nvme drives and 32gb of RAM. Steps for CbB:- Load a blank project. Insert SampleTank as a VST Instrument with MIDI source track. Load sound and record on MIDI track. Save file as a normal Cakewalk project. Close CbB. Start CbB. Open SampleTank project file. Cakewalk attempts to load the project but just closes with no minidump. A similar project created in SPLAT will load without a problem in both SPLAT and CbB. Why? It appears that the SPLAT saved version doesn't include a reference to Cakewalk's GroovePlayer - that can be seen by opening the project file in safe mode. But once the SPLAT version is saved again in CbB it reverts to type, i.e. a safe start is needed to successfully open it - presumably because CbB now puts in the GroovePlayer reference. I should also say that when the project does successfully open in safe mode the project window defaults to quite a small size - presumably because it's in safe mode. The work-around for me is to simply start the project in safe mode.
  12. Appreciated. Final thoughts on this......I still can't generate a mididump because the program doesn't hang, it just closes. Interestingly, in my version of Sonar Platinum (Newburyport), SampleTank works as expected. No problems opening files.
  13. That's really helpful, thanks. I'll see what I can do with this and report back but don't wait up. Easiest way out is to ditch SampleTank as, for me, CbB is now very stable with everything else I use.
  14. So why would disabling this cause Sample tank to load normally?
