  1. This issue has cropped up again... I don't understand why - perfectly good pair of stereo headphones, playing everyting outside of cakewalk in stereo, cakewalk will only play mono. Any settings to suggest checking? I notice in Audio Profiles it shows AKG Y50BT (1 in, 1 out)... I'm assuming the 1 out is suggesting a single channel out vs. stereo. I used to work with these all the time. Any guidance appreciated.
  2. Thanks for the quick reply - I'll take a look at that, but I think it might have been "Auto Thru" that caused it. I've never seen it, not sure I understand it but Auto Thru was enabled on most/all the midi tracks. Not sure why you'd use that. Does it make sense Auto Thru could cause this behavior and when might one use that?
  3. I don't even know how to describe the problem properly, it's so strange. Let me start by saying I lost my hard drive so I had to rebuild my entire setup from scratch. Best I can tell everything is back in place where it should be but I'm having a weird issue with one of the projects I was working on. I have multiple drum instruments (different tracks), synths, etc. I have a drum machine loop, then I've got real drums playing through Superior Drummer 3. Both on totally separate tracks, each has a totally different midi track that drives it. If I have the drum machine track selected in track view, everything plays fine. But while it's playing, if I just go and select the superior drummer track, for some reason the midi from the drum machine now starts playing through superior drummer. I didn't change inputs our outputs or anything... just highlighted the track. It doesn't only happen with the SD3 track. If I select other synth midi tracks in track view - same weirdness. Any ideas what might be happening here? Some wires getting crossed somewhere, maybe a setting associated with track view? Really strange. Any help greatly appreciated
  4. thanks for the input - I only use these when doing rough or quick mixes and disconnected from my studio monitors and audio interface. Not sure I get the latency issue - I would assume the entire system (all tracks) would have the same latency and never had any issue with that latency impacting the mix. I would think that would only be an issue if I was trying to record with them.
  5. well... i restarted cakewalk and some how it resolved itself.
  6. I had to set up an entirely new system due to a hard drive failure. I have a weird issue where when I'm using my bluetooth headphones, the sound quality out of cakewalk is really poor. I can tell it's mono and is generally low quality. I'm using WASAPI and all the settings seem to look right. Playing music through other apps, or youtube music for example is fine. I've seen/experienced issues in the past where headphones are thought of a headset instead and the quality degrades, but best I can tell - windows sees this as headphones for music (and as I said - works everywhere but cakewalk). This is Windows 11 if that is any potential cause. Is there a setting that I can check to fix? (BTW the master bus is set to stereo)
  7. There's a Win 11 thread, where I just posted that question. Such a big thread though not sure if I'll get response. I did try Jbridge, and it seemed to allow me to load this plugin on win11 (I had to convert the file, couldn't use the jbridge directly within cakewalk). The problem is, it seems to rename the plugin, so I have a feeling, when I load my existing projects it won't see it's the same plugin. Thankfully for this plugin it's basically one knob so I might be able to get back to where I was relatively easily. Hoping someone has a solution for bitbridge and windows 11.
  8. Has anyone had and resolved issues with BitBridge on windows 11 and 32-bit plugins?
  9. It appears Windows 11 is the issue. Does anyone know if bitbridge works on windows 11? (I have access to a Windows 10 system and the plugin installed fine)
  10. OK - I think contributing to the problem is that it's 32 bit - but it worked fine in my previous setup. Could be a bigger issue given this is windows 11 vs windows 10? anyway around this? Jbridge? I had a project I was working on for months that uses this plugin on several tracks.
  11. My hard drive completely failed and I'm now rebuilding Cakewalk and all the plugins on my new system. Thankfully I had backed up all my projects. For the most part I have everything working but for the life of me, I can't get Cakewalk to see the SSL LMC-1 Listen Mic Compressor plugin. Worked fine on my old system. https://www.kvraudio.com/product/lmc_1_by_solid_state_logic_ssl The installer installs a DLL into a folder in Programs Files (x86). I tried adding that to my folders list. I copied the DLL into a C:\VSTPlugins folder where I have other plugins that load fine. Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated. As a bonus question :) - I can't find another plugin which is simply called "Pitch Shift"... I've been googling for free pitch shifters and can't figure out what I was using. Thanks
  12. ah.. ok great to know. See the weird thing is, my Dell doesn't even give me the option for high performance mode OR creating high performance profiles. I chatted with Dell support, and while they didn't solve it, they did give me a command I can run that puts into high performance mode. I'll give that a shot!
  13. I have a pretty decent powered laptop but if I have any more than one or two instruments or a reasonable number of effects, I can't do anything in cakewalk with Wasapi... Choppy audio, complete drop outs .. I will try exclusive and see if any better but pretty sure I tried that before with no luck. As soon as I plugin my Scarlett and switch to Asio, no problems... Plus it gives me the option to increase the buffer when things get really heavy. Thought I saw a small sound blaster USB device and thought it might have Asio support. The onboard realtek seems completely incapable. Would love to know other ways to improve. Curious if you are doing anything special with power settings (like do you specifically need to switch to high performance mode or is balance md fine??)
  14. Curious... does anyone use a small USB soundcard that has Asio drivers for mixing? I have a scarlett 2i2 in my studio but just looking for something small when I'm remote, don't need any inputs or outputs even... just something that has more juice to power cakewalk and plugins so I can mix disconnected. Thanks!
