  1. Thanks John.. as i stated in my original post.. i have tried to help myself i have watched that youtube clip and others as well as the online Cakewalk help but they did not give the answer im looking for.. i just need to be able to do something like what you do with Photoshop when you have different layers and you want to bring one to the front... Please can you just tell me if you know the answer?
  2. Hi all.. I use Sound on Sound as my preferred recording Mode Ive looked but cant find out how to nominate the take lane i want to view ( on top) when i collapse the take lanes. E.G. I have 2 Tambourine takes on the same track. one playing 16ths the other the quarters How do i see one and not the other and vice versa. ? Or also if i wanted to see all the take lanes when i go back to track view? Thanks
  3. thanks for the reply.. they are identical in length (because they are the same sample) but not identical in position ie they are not quantized and they have been positioned in the track by hand
  4. ive had one "confused" reaction... simply put..i have 70 identical kik drum clips on a track they are lets say 500milliseconds in length. i want to shorten all of them to 400 ms how do i do that quickly and easily
  5. ive tried searching with every wording i can think of if someone can just point to the page in the Cakewalk manual thanks
  6. Of course ...very evident when some one points it out anyway very grateful for your help
  7. Me again.. i have a song im working on that has a drumloop that i like but has a weak kik drum so i have set up another track and set up another kik that works well together with the loop kik so know i have the loop with weak kik (still very audible) in conjunction with this other kik now it sounds punchy..but i did have to line up the new kik coz the loop kiks werent always on the beat some a few ticks ahead/behind....OK painstakingly done all that Now i discover that theres the remnant of a Hi Hat on the subsidiary kik track which is upsetting the groove. i have also discovered that i can shorten this clip and remove the remnant but coz the kiks are not uniform in placement will take me ages to modify each one by hand.. OK so how do i tell cakewalk to make every clip on my kik track to be a specified length (thus removing the remnant HiHat) Thanks for reading...
  8. OK all working now ..thanks again Azslow your advice helped a lot... I was really starting to freak out.
  9. Thanks Azslow..... connecting the X tender with Mackie XT is the missing peice of the puzzle. i was using the standard Mackie...big problem. so just to get this right...do i initially connect both units to seperate USB ports on my computer and setup? And then piggy back from X Touch... Or do piggy back them from the XTouch like the setup guide (yeah right) says. Or are they always on seperate USB? Thanks for the help
  10. Thanks for the reply but thats not what it is..i know that one. Like i said somehow connecting the X Tender stuffed up Cake..but removing the file like i said earlier fixed it
  11. Hi all Like it says. i have already tried to do this and caused myself hours of angst and anxiety as you can read in my other post "Cakewalk will not launch" so this time i will wait till someone much more knowledgeable than me can assist simple ...connect x tender to x touch to cake...step by step if you can Thanks
  12. ok it seems Cake will create a new ctrlsurface file...and now everything is back to the way it was.( i think...i hope) problem now is getting the X Tender to connect to Cake... i have made a copy of my current working ctrlsurface file so i can replace it if this happens again. so my ne w question is just that how connect xtender to x touch to cakewalk i think thats a new thread thanks all
  13. OK so ive kept digging . i found a file called ctrlsurface in appdata/roaming/cakewalk/cakewalk core and removed it and now Cake boots and works.. when i try to open the said file to maybe remove the offending entry its all in machine code.
  14. Hi all Up until 90 min ago cake was running perfect Intel I7 SSD / RME UFX / Behringer X touch.....all perfect until i tried to connect a Behringer X touch Extender..(xtra 8 motorized faders) i set up what i thought was a new controller and i couldnt get it working so i closed cake to try again later..later came but cake just boots to the splash screen and crashs to the desktop.. im fairly computer literate so i tried a few things. Boot win 10 into safe mode...nada Shift control boot up cake ...nada rename AUD ini file...nada update cake to latest ..nada i dont want to uninstall /reinstall coz ive got so many customizations what can i do..is there a file i can go to and remove the new x tender settings i made as that is ,i believe.the,cause of this problem. Having said that cake has never once given me a problem its proven to be very robust hence my surprise with this . thanks PS I have an old Sonar platinum on my computer and it opens and works fine
