  1. Hello everyone. I am attempting to archive locally a full, complete, installer of CWBBL for later use. Is this event possible / legal? Asking because I am testing a fresh install in a Windows Sandbox and I can see that the installer still downloads files from the net during installation. So, I am afraid that those files might not eventually be available in the future. Reason I am doing this is that I am not planning to upgrade to the new SONAR this year (as I am pretty sure the price range will be around 400-500$) , but I still want to open my past projects . I am also not planning to be buying "new" computers anytime soon (just used ones... powerful enough for me and my little projects), So i'm going to stick to Win 10-11 for a looooonnng time without any negative impact on my projects / usecases. So I basically want to make CWBBL available to me until... the end? 😅 (Over 50y over here... It is what it is...) Thoughts? Recommandations? Thanks!
  2. Hello Everyone. Does anyone know how can I contact the support team for the legacy.cakewalk.com site? The links presented on the site to email support are not working for me and I cannot use the direct "contact support" web interface because it requires the I log into my account beforehand. So I'm kinda stuck. I am a Cakewalk user since the 1990 all the way thru SONAR PLATINUM and CWBBL. I recently tried to use these LP plugins, originally included in SONAR PLATINUM, in a project today and they are not activated anymore it seems. I'm trying to login to legacy.cakewalk.com to re-authorize, but none of my passwords are working and I am not receiving any of the password reset emails I am attempting to get. Thanks in advance.
  3. Hello everyone. I'm trying to set up a MATRIX project where i'll be using 2 short stereo audio files / loops triggered by COLUMN A... this works fine. BUT I'm trying to put 3 stereo files (about 17 minutes of duration each) in COLUMN B. These files are 3 distinct audio environments design to play at the same time, over 3 independent audio outputs. So far, it is not working properly. These three files are being "warped" / Grooved-clipped somewhat. This, even if I think i'm doing everything that should be done to prevent this. In details: Clips are not marked as loop or tempo strech/follow tempo when i'm looking at the CLIP property pane before importing to the Matrix. In the MATRIX view, global loop is OFF When importing the clips, they get the "one shot" symbol on the cell (not the loop one) Even then, I can hear audio artifacts usually related to "groove looping" / Time matching on playback. When i Double-click on the matrix cell that contains one of the long audio clips, to have a look in the LOOP CONSTRUCTION VIEW, file is unexpectedly marked as loop and I can see slice markers... When disabling the LOOP option in the loop construction view (attempting to confirm this file is to be treated as a one-shot), the file (or matrix cell that contains it) is not launching playback at all when i click on it from the MATRIX. ... Soooo.... has anyone used successfully long audio files as ONE SHOTS in the MATRIX View or not? What am I forgetting to do in my preps here if so? Thanks.
  4. +1 ! In fact, just to be able to edit more easily midi data within matrix cells would already be cool. Last time I've checked (and I confess it has been a long time since...), I had to replace the cell's content to update to my taste. I hope I have not just overlooked something in the Matrix's workflow that might be already there though...
  5. Thanks for your help! I did check out the items you listed and I also went back to basics a couple of days ago and completely uninstalled all of my WAVES components and reinstalled them all again. Something somehow must have went wrong when I first tried to "update"... Once again the "from scratch" approach saved the day. All good now. Regards.
  6. Hello group. I'm having issues running CWBBL with my Waves Soundgrid Studio. I recently did updates (softwares, device's firmwares) in order to do some cleanup and use mainly Waves V13 . But now, CWBBL (and my other DAWs) are not detecting the SoundGrid ASIO DRIVER. It is not showing up in the available audio devices' list in Preferences. Beforehand I could see both ASIO DRIVERS from Waves Soundgrid (and my Tascam us2020 that is integrated with my Soundgrid system). Not the case anymore as you can see below: When selecting the Tascam's audio interface it is not working. (Playback starts but no sound can be heard, no VU meters are active and I cannot stop the playback... I have to kill CWBBL via Windows' Task Manager). This behavior was always the case on my system, But I just thought that since Waves SG ASIO driver disappeared I should just switch to the Tascam's asio driver. Did not work, as I said. Fun fact: when searching in Waves Manual for something I might have overlooked, I came on a section that was saying that in order to properly use STUDIO RACK for low latency monitoring when recording with a DAW, the DAW should use the audio interface's driver... Now I am floored as I think it never really worked like that over here... I think! Lol. So, How are you guys configured regarding your selected ASIO DRIVERS in CWBBL when used within a Soundgrid system? My Soundgrid setup seems to detect all my components correctly, but somehow the Soundgrid ASIO driver that, I think, used to be available to the Daws is just not there anymore... Posting some other captures... for context... not sure if really relevant though... Lol. Posting this I guess because I'm wondering if my setup / patch is somehow generating a clock-related issue that could make the SG asio driver "disappear" ... but I think it is very unlikely... I'm monitoring thru the US-2020 computer out 1-2 (connected to my speakers).
  7. In my first attempts, it did not exactly behaved like that... But I might just have overlooked something. I'll try again!
  8. ... and just for the sake of the discussion, here is what I had to manually do in order to get today's job done. I did encounter other problems in my attempts to use the arranger features... Did a BOUNCE TO TRACK of my completed editing job Selected the whole timeline and used the SPLIT CLIPS AT BOUNDARIES from the ARRANGER TRACK (to have my new bounced track splitted accordingly) Manually copied/pasted the arranger track's SECTION NAMES to update my CLIPS name (on the bounced track) Did an EXPORT AUDIO using only my selected bounced track using CLIPS as export source... ... But wait! I have not yet listened to any of those exported clips... might be in for another surprise... Doing some listenin' right now... Regards.
  9. Hello Bandlabers. First time around I'm actually trying to use the ARRANGER TRACK... and it's not going to well for me so far... Trying to use that feature to cut/organize VO tracking. (So using arranger sections to identify "clips" and "portion" of the narration associated with a PowerPoint Slide) I have a high number of section in my arranger track (about 55 sections). But I am only encountering problems to finish my work: Trying to commit the arranger track and insert it to the timeline - Bandlab hangs. Trying to export the SECTIONS of my project in separated clips (aggangement not "commited"): Somehow the audio files got re-inserted in the project's timeline and created a mess (had to back to an auto-version backup to recover a usable project...) So i'm starting to guess my problems might be related to my high number of sections... Is anybody else using the ARRANGER in a kind of "per clip" workflow instead of a "per song" workflow? Maybe I just didn't choose the right tool for the job, but it just seemed logical to try it... Thanks!
  10. Hello ! Thanks fo the response. When I did try to open KBN files into my text editor or coding apps like VS CODE, I only could see a couple of lines (Please refer to my attached screenshot)... So... I really do not understand why my system here is not behaving the same as yours when attempting to open a KBN file
  11. Hello. I'm trying and failing to wrap my head around about VIEWING and EDITING our KeyBoard Shortcuts assignment files. Can any computer gurus suggest a "how to " guide? I've read that we could view / read KBN files in text editors... When I try this, my files are only about 4-7 lines long. I do not know how to manage this. I've tried to open a KBN file in a web browser... no good either... Same thing when I'm trying to open the file in VS CODE. See attached picture as an example A post in our forum seemed to suggest that some data about this ends up in the registry (accessed via REGEDIT, of course)... I'm close to useless when i'm trying to work with REGEDIT. There's got to be a better way... Is there some kind of standard file type for keyboard shortcuts that is used by many different apps? Should I consider a file type like an XML or whatever ?? I'M clueless... ... now... WHY am I asking? (Even if I can realise that my goal here might really just be "overkill"...) Well, my work and my "hobbies" are causing me to test different apps (don't we all...?) and of course my workflow "speed" is greatly impacted every time i'm evaluating / presenting different DAWS and NLEs... Currently, I'm tying to "view" , in a quick and dirty way, keyboard assignments from these applications... hoping I can then put together some kind of my favorite "shortcuts" that could be configured the same for most (if not all) of these. Adobe Audition (That I COULD export to a spreadsheet... yeah) Adobe Premiere DaVinci Resolve Pro-Tools CWBBL... of course... Now I know that some of these apps already have presets to assign Shortcuts like "another app" (the most frequent ones I can see are for PREMIERE and PRO-TOOLS...) I just wanted to see if a super-brain could figure out a better way to address this kind of topic regarding cross-app workflows... ... Because now I just kinda think that the only way for me to go about this right now is to open all of these apps' PDF manuals and just manually copy-paste the listed shortcuts into a spreadsheet (or just export / convert from Acrobat pro... I know... hehe...) ...and that is the end of my "quaterly" topic... I did ask something like this a couple of years ago... could not manage to actually make any progress on this subject up until today... so asking again, sorry. 😊
  12. Yep! Re-evaluating this with Guitar Rig 5's one. (Had completely forgot about them).
