  1. I'm not sure what you mean? The method that I'm trying to employ works in Logic (the DAW): one plug-in duplicated across two different tracks. On one track it is set to preset1 (to create one snare sound) and on the other track it is set to preset8 (to create another snare sound). However as I try the same method in Cakewalk the plug-in is present on both tracks but when I try switch presets on one track it applies changes to both. Would you be kind enough explain what you mean for a noob like me. It can't be that I am limited to altering the settings of a plug-in once per project, surely.
  2. Hey there, I'm building a beat at the moment and I'm having a problem switching presets on a plug in called DrumPro 64. Basically, I have two seperate tracks using the same plug in, the problem is that when I select a different kit under Track2, it applies the change to the pattern I've already put down on Track1. I've only just started using this DAW so I presume it's something that I'm doing wrong. Does anybody know why I can't use the same plug-in on multiple tracks without affecting them all? Thanks in advance.
  3. Wow great reply thank you. I will look into whether or not theres a partition in my Cdrive or not, I hadn't thought of that. I'm running Cakewalk straight off of my HDD for the time being while I save up for a desktop PC, I'm so done with laptops for now... Thank you for all of the info Bob, I'll commit it to memory
  4. I want to once more thank everybody who replied to my query, you've all been so helpful. Trust me I'm so happy to say that Cakewalk is being installed onto my D Drive as we speak. I achieved this using a little of everyone's suggestions so it was a collaborative effort on all of your parts, thanks team!
  5. You were right, turns out I had about 4gb in 'temporary files'. And while I do have a Windows.old I had a look in properties and it contains 3 files taking up a total of 0bytes. Not sure what version of Windows. - EDIT: Version 10.0.10240, according to cmd window
  6. Ah thanks for letting me know, I can see that now
  7. Where can I find the release you're referring to?
  8. Why not just grab the EA release from this forum, and download directly to the D:/ drive -This is exactly what I've been looking for, thanks, didn't know it was an option. -Oh, and it's time for a new hard drive if not a new computer . With only a 28GB system drive, I have to wonder what the rest of the system spec is. -And yeah, believe me, this is not my dream laptop I'm just making do with what I can afford. Usually I go to my friend's studio to record but; lockdown.
  9. Tried with the space, emptied recycle bin, nothing same again. Thanks anyway
  10. Sorry, but nothing seems to be happening. I opened as admin and tried a few times.
  11. Sorry I wasn't clear, I have run disk clean-up but I am out of apps and files that I can delete. The above screenshot is the results of a culling of apps as well as a disc clean-up
  12. Ahhh so if I do this I'll get back all the hardrive space that hibernate uses at the cost of the hibernate feature and start up speeds? I think I'll give this a try, sounds worth it. Thanks!
  13. I see what you're saying, so the initial download once complete would give me access to the actual installer? and yes, my free space looks like this even after unistalling my anti-virus software (desperate measure!). The only external software I currently have is Bandlab Assistant and my web browser (about 750mb all together). The rest of the space is taken up by system files and other stuff that makes the laptop work.
  14. Yo, thanks for the reply, your using a laptop with 1 internal drive - and that drive has 1 operating system (no dual boot) with a total size of 28 gb ? -Yes a laptop with 1 internal drive with a total size of 28gb. Not sure what you mean by dual boot? I have a file in C names program files and another called program files (x86). the 1tb Drive you mention is a physical drive? (im assuming an external 1 tb usb drive??) - or is it a partition on the internal laptop hard drive ??? -Correct. It is a physical 1tb external USB drive.
  15. No, like I said the install takes up more than the total space (even if it were empty) on the C:drive. Thanks for the suggestion though.
  16. Yes I have tried running the installer and I don't get this option. It goes straight to asking me which add-ons I'd like to install. From there the only options are 'install'# or 'cancel'. Upon clicking install it says 'Downloading(1/5)' it gets to 'Downloading(4/5)' and then stops abruptly. Presumably because there is no space on the Cdrive - the automatic target for the installation.
  17. Thank you for the reply. Unfortunately I can't kick back yet - my version of the installer is via Bandlab assistant (I don't think there is currently any separate download link). In any case; there is no option for 'advanced' nor does it say basic anywhere. This is a shot of what my installer looks like. I can't get past this point because the Bandlab assistant automatically targets my Cdrive as the target for the install.
  18. This sounds promising, I'll let you know if it works. Thanks so much for the swift reply. Cheers!
  19. Hi whoever is viewing this, My C:drive is too small (28gb total) to install Cakewalk. I was wondering if anybody knows how to install Cakewalk directly onto my 1tb D drive, as there is no way (that I know of) to transfer it post install as like I said my C drive is too small. Thanks in advance.
  20. Hi, Hope somebody here can help me with a similar issue. I don't need advice as to best practices etc - My options are limited to just one. Having used Bandlab on my phone for a while I wanted to try and use Cakewalk. My problem is the laptop I have has a very small C: drive (28gb) so installing the software on another drive is my only option. However I can't seem to find any way of selecting the 1tb D: drive I purchased for this exact purpose, as the install location. Does anybody have any ideas? Please, help! Thank you in advance to anyone reading this. Bless.
