  1. I think you’ll find Channel Tools has been around for a very, very long time (I can recall using it years ago). However a number of DAWs have a simple option on the panning knob (or whatever) that allows the user to simply choose how the panning is to be performed without adding yet another plugin. my thoughts Tony
  2. I was looking for a good solution. Many good DAWs have setting on the track panning that do similar without the need of adding extra tools or plugins. Yes some plugins such a Neutron or VST instruments such as VSL Synchron have it built in as do some other DAWs. it would be a really good feature to add IMHO. Tony
  3. Hi Gurus, is there a way to set a tracks panning width and position. Many DAWs allow one to not only pan to a position but also set how wide the stereo is within that position. For example, set the pan to 30% left with a width of say 40% which might have the effect of putting the track in a narrow band but not mono 30% left. I know this can be achieved using third party stereo imaging plugins (eg Neutron) and also some VST instruments will do it such as VSL Synchron player. But, it would be good to be able to do it at a track level as can be done in other DAWs. Maybe it is possible in Cakewalk but I cannot find it. It does make for nicer positioning. Tony
  4. I would like to see the option of starting at bar -1 or better -2. I find it a bummer to be finding what is bar 8 on bar 10. It would be nice to be able to have an area for a lead in prior to bar 1 or even a count in. This shouldn’t be too difficult to implement. Tony
  5. Thanks Noel, I sent a dump to Cakewalk (Freed) and we fairly quickly got pretty much to the bottom of it. All sorted.
  6. Hi, thanks for the assistance. I think I’ve now fixed the Vienna Smart Orchestra after a call to Support. We looked at a possible issue. I got rid of some bloatware and also uninstalled my version of MSOffice which was a bit old. There was a component in there causing Cakewalk and Vienna to have a fight. I also had to once again reinstall Cakewalk. It worked all day today so I’m a little more confident. Thanks again (and thanks to Cakewalk Support (thanks Freed)) Tony
  7. I’ve sent VSL a heap of Minidumps but there’s nothing in them. Last evening I sent both Cakewalk and VSL a heap of crash dumps. Hopefully this might show something. Oddly enough I installed the prerelease version yesterday and it worked for about 30 minutes. Once it barfed it just keeps doing so after 30 seconds or so. I don’t even need to be doing anything just letting it sit there. The Synchron Player works fine in Reaper without issue. Unfortunately I find MIDI editing in Reaper a bit of a challenge. Cakewalk in my opinion is much nicer. thanks for your response Tony
  8. I like the advice I have some dumps but how do I log a call? Tony
  9. Well I spoke too soon. It worked for about 30 minutes or so. Then it froze, went belly up and now I cannot get a Vienna Smart Orchestra to work. It might play a few bars the crashes Cakewalk big time. It seem to actually lockup my pc for a minute or two.
  10. Well I don’t know what to say. For the past week I’ve been frustrated, sending stuff to VSL asking questions on various forums including the Cakewalk forum. I purchased Vienna Smart Orchestra but unfortunately could not get it to work in Cakewalk. I even went to a “fresh” install of Cakewalk but no joy. Today I get the message about the advance release so I thought “why not it can’t get worse”. I downloaded and put it on my system. Fired it up loaded the Vienna Smart Orchestra and it worked. I hope I’m not speaking too soon but it seems as if the issue may have gone with the new update. I can only hope and pray. keep well all. Tony
  11. Now if I could only get the Vienna Smart Orchestra from crashing Cakewalk. thanks again MSMcLeod
  12. Spot on first hit. I did not know such a thing existed. It never used to. Now they’ll tell me that’s an improvement Thanks a heap Tony
  13. I think I made a huge mistake. I removed Cakewalk by Bandlab and reinstalled a fresh version to attempt overcome Vienna Smart Orchestra from crashing Cakewalk (made no difference however). The “fresh” install looks totally different to what I had but most importantly it behaves totally differently. There does not appear the be an Event Viewer which to me is a critical feature on the most basic DAW. Why would this disappear. It is not in the track view right click nor is it in the View menu. how can I get this back. All of a sudden Reaper is starting to look better. In Reaper the Vienna Smart Orchestra works fine as do all other features that used to work in Cakewalk. I did prefer Cakewalk to Reaper For MIDI editing but if it doesn’t do what I need why bother. Tony
  14. Thanks, actually the original was made in Cakewalk (actually Sonar) using Miroslav Philharmonik or really TTS1 many years ago. I use it to test orchestral libraries a simple thing based on Swan Lake that I use as it has a number of different parts. Synchron Player causes a crash even with nothing loaded but the Synchron Player. Not even any libraries or midi tracks in place. Normally Cakewalk works pretty well unless I do something stupid it does not like. thanks again tony
