  1. I'm not sure but I think I solved my own problem by restarting Cakewalk. I can't get it to happen again. Sorry for the stupidity! Timbo
  2. Hi, I've got a little bug in my ear with the new export. When the filename is empty (as I had it in my test preset) and the user clicks on Export, the program pops up with "an internal error" rather than taking the user to the Choose Export Filename dialog, which is the way Cakewalk used to work on the export (i.e. make your choices on what gets exported, THEN choose an export filename). As a longtime Cakewalk user (I have Home Studio 2004 on my shelf), it bothers me. Can you please add a couple of lines of code? I don't think it will mess up all the complicated templates. Thanks, Timbo
  3. That's a terrific Strat sound! This is so Floyd'y, it's got a wonderful Gilmour feel without totally copying his setup. And your drummer Larry is way better than Mason! Terrific playing by both of you guitarists - that fricking riff at 6:29 made me forget about Gilmour altogether. And Dave flies on the C3! Wonderful work - I'm so jealous! Tim PS Listened to an old album this morning on my walk called "Atom Heart Mother" ...

  5. Nice job with the backing vocals - I always have trouble with them. I also like the arrangement, the bit at 2 minutes or so fit perfectly. The song builds beautifully from there. Timbo
  6. I always forget to get it to "Notify me of replies ..."
  7. You can check to see if it's enabled as a synth: - start Cakewalk Plugin Manager under the Utilities menu - find your plug under the VST3 Instruments category and click on it then click on the Plug-in Properties button - if enable as plug-in or configure as synth are unchecked then check them and ok your way out - you may have to rescan your plugs at this point This has worked for me in the past with a synth here and there, Tim
  8. Always fun stuff from jack c. ...! Reminds me a bit of Larry Wild Man Fischer and Frank's days with Captain Beefheart. Interesting lyrics throughout, thought provoking to my ears. I loved the intro and how the song ended with the click of something being turned off. Keep it up! Timbo
  9. I agree with Mark, nice sound but the fade out didn't do it for me. I really liked the delays and your use of space. The simple drum track pulled it all together. Timbo
  10. Thanks all for the ideas, I'll listen again and implement. Tim
  11. Thanks Mark, you put into words what I was thinking about the vocals. I have never been happy with the song itself and my playing can't stand up to most, so I've tried to concentrate on the production, These 2 tips are very helpful! Thanks, Tim

    Cave Paintings

    Hi all, I'd appreciate your ears on this mix. It's a song that started with the idea of "what if a caveman had a cell phone". It grew to become a bleak comparison of Neandertal life with that of today where I attempt to show that we have lost the magic that our ancestors felt and even with all the social media connections we are alone compared to their way of life. I used Melodyne 5 Editor (it was on sale last month for $99 US) on the vox and guitars. It was worth the upgrade and works well in Cakewalk, not perfectly, but well. https://soundcloud.com/yellowdwarfband/cave-paintings Please comment if you can. Thanks, Timbo
  13. Cool idea, but there's no modern way to program/write macros for Cakewalk. Copy and paste is your friend. Timbo
  14. Exactly. I love going down to my studio with the lights off and seeing all those (mostly blue) lights reflecting off my guitars and gear. But my working DAW theme has to be easy on my eyes.
  15. Nice, couldn't help but to be reminded of our IT guys at work doing a live, full-lyric changed cover that started with "Blackberries Ringing in the Dead of Night" ... Timbo PS Love when robins feign that they're dead so as to lead you away from the nest. How did that behaviour evolve?
