  1. Thanks for the response Heinz. 😀
  2. I have an old Novation Launch Control that I use in Cakewalk by Bandlab (v 2021.01 Build 098 64 bit) for triggering Matrix samples and other things but I can't for the life of me manage to get any of the lights on the buttons to work (apart from the 'User' one you see here). I know they're OK in themselves as they cycle through red/green/yellow when I boot the PC up but they just don't work with the DAW. It's not the end of the world here but it would make things a bit easier if I could see some visual indication of what I'm doing instead of relying on the Matrix view itself. It's bound to be something obvious I've overlooked. For info, all Novation legacy firmware and Editor software is up to date. Cheers in advance Rich'
  3. Corruption could be a strong word but if it's the only project with an issue, I can't see how it can be anything other than a problem within the project itself rather than Cakewalk. Have you tried isolating any possible glitches in the project? For example, it may be a plug-in or plug-in setting that's causing the problem. Go through the tracks archiving them one at a time to see if this cures it.
  4. Exactly. I've never seen a file saved by accident.
  5. He must have clicked 'save' somewhere along the line for that to happen......
  6. I currently have two largish monitors running off a graphics card, an iPad running via the 'Duet' USB interface and am planning to use the onboard graphics to run a fourth monitor (just a 17" square one) in the near future. The Windows 10 (1809) system doesn't seem to have any undue problems managing this set-up. Multiple monitors are extremely helpful and make life a lot easier for me with Cakewalk.
  7. It’s worse than that Paulo, Mrs Whistlekiller is an accomplished angler as well. #AllYearRoundTan
  8. We are all beholden in life. Before software was a glint in somebody’s eye we were beholden to employers not going to the wall, beholden to landlords not putting up the rent, beholden to partners not asking for a divorce, beholden to political leaders starting wars in which we could all be killed.......if you have the means and inclination to control these important things, a bit of a software ownership problem is small beer.
  9. I’ve never noticed backwoods. I’m a firm believer in leaving well alone without too much digging. Something I picked up from my years in the IT industry talking to very clever technicians. I think Windows 10 is fantastic and it does everything I need it to do better than its predecessors. Can’t ask for more.
  10. Nowadays I have the advantage of being a professional angler and because of this my computer has worked perfectly with this ‘atrocious piece of garbage’ from the moment it was built....😎. The most stable and simple to understand OS I’ve ever used and believe me, I’ve used a few. Furthermore, Cakewalk has never run better either, on anything. 😉
  11. How about trying to limit what stuff you shove though a DAW. Some of the best music was created with a minimum number of tracks and effects. 😀
  12. One of the new forum features as opposed to the old place is the 'Like' button (the heart shaped icon at the bottom right of each post) which replaces the need to quote and reply with "+1" when you like something. Keeps forum clutter down.
  13. I haven't experienced any issues at all with Windows 10 since migrating from 7 several years ago despite all the naysayers saying it was a disaster. Cakewalk by BandLab runs perfectly with it, as does my old VS-100, possibly due to me not tinkering with anything. Always online and only using Microsoft inbuilt AV. Nothing to worry about.
  14. Evening and Merry Christmas everybody. I've been a long time Cakewalk user and an interested participant in the old forum. Nice to see yet another promise fulfilled by BandLab with this new forum. Looks a lot leaner than its predecessor. 👍
