  1. Check event viewer for the problem area of the clip in question. Sounds like maybe you've created some (many!-likely due to the high resolution of the mouse) events/automation which is creating the audio 'lag'.
  2. You had baskets.... ....!?!
  3. If the midimix supports a Mackie/MCU mode it should work that way. If it doesn't, Alexey's AZcontroller (see link below) may be your best option. Some reading and legwork will be required. Unfortunately Alexey moved on to Reaper some time ago I believe. http://www.azslow.com/
  4. (IMO) Be very wary of preorders (in the past - group buys). I always found his deals deliberately convoluted. In the past he was criticised by his customers who thought they were not getting what they paid for. That said I like Wusikstation. But there is very little change from one version to another. He promotes a lot of new sounds that seem to just be the old sounds with a facelift to the synth. I upgraded my old Wusikstation from I think 6 to 9 for compatibility with another DAW maybe a year ago. It's been great and I really don't use it much but I needed it for compatibility with an old project. It's actually a nice synth with some neat features. YMMV.
  5. (Unless they've removed the SONAR feature from CbB) (Not click and drag, but insert tempo change/tap tempo:) http://forum.cakewalk.com/TAP-button-m3525911.aspx
  6. Thanks for posting Michael. Awesome reverbs- will definitely try 2.00.
  7. Another thought, if the software is properly activated, and if you are sure the plugin is being scanned properly, maybe try it in another DAW - reaper is free to try and small enough it will give you a pretty good idea if the plugin problem is only with Cakewalk/Sonar. I still believe it's a plugin issue not your DAW.
  8. Further to Max's point about it sounding like an iLok issue here is Antares' instructions for activation. I don't think it's sufficient for Antares' support to say the DAW MIGHT not be supported and "you should have tried the demo". (While true, they need to help you ensure your software is properly activated). http://support.antarestech.com/support/solutions/articles/26000034572-how-to-activate-your-license-for-non-ilok-plugins-like-auto-tune-access-efx-and-auto-key-
  9. It seems to me the problem isn't the free DAW - it's the expensive plugin (with no refund as a bonus). Yay Antares! How familiar are you with 3rd party plugins in general? Have you searched for the plugin to be sure the install location is included in your scanned folders? Done a rescan of your plugs? Does the VST scan fail on scanning? Does the plugin show up in your excluded Plugins?
  10. https://github.com/rogeriodec/CAL His "unoverlap" cal script is pretty useful for this
  11. I was using Alchemy a week or so ago in Studio One 4. Worked fine. Will try it again and also in CbB when I am back at my DAW. Very disappointed if this doesn't work. "Camel" and Apple can both rot in Hell. Thinking of all the convolutions to download and keep installers and data files with no certainty that the program would re-install/authenticate etc. It's inevitable that it will go I suppose though still infuriating.
  12. Tough to assess 'attitude' from text. I reread the post and still see only eagerness to help out a fellow user.
  13. Sorry to hear that. The biggest problem is Windows 10 and the fact your older card is not supported. As others have said you might be better off dropping the Soundblaster and using an on board card instead even with ASIO4ALL. (Edit) - kitecrazy has it....
  14. Why are you so resistant to losing the Soundblaster? All kinds of issues with Soundblaster drivers, especially with windows 10, which doesn't support your card. You've a decent PC. Spend a few dollars on a low cost interface and like Cactus advises, launch that old Soundblaster. Time to move on.
  15. I believe Q = "quiet" mode (low speed, independent of speed setting from bios or controller). P = "power" mode where speed is set to target (from bios or from a fan control). Sometimes it is just two fixed speeds (Q = lower speed, P = higher, depending on the fan)
  16. There are lots of posts about issues with sound blaster based sound cards being hosed by Windows 10. Just one example below. There are lots of low cost audio cards our there that would be a better choice for SONAR than what you are trying to use. May want to consider upgrading to Cakewalk by Bandlab while you are upgrading too. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/lost-sound-after-latest-windows-10-update/92063df1-e228-4e68-a5b0-ee9bb9c891aa
  17. PM him. (Copy the link then choose the mail icon from your user profile- his info will come up when you start to type his name).
  18. I haven't spent a lot of time exploring current offerings and limitations. K-lite I think is still a good all in one pack: https://www.codecguide.com Set a restore point before you install just to be safe.
  19. Actually I think that suggests to me it IS a codec. Chances are that the exact same codec is being used by Cakewalk as is used by the vidplayer. The only hope (apart from conversion) is to try to install a different codec/codec pack.
  20. You're welcome. FWIW I have always found QuickTime and MP4 dodgy in SONAR and assume that would still be the case in Bandlab. That's why I tried the vst player originally.
  21. I've used this in SONAR in the past: awesome little video player vst (free): if it's a codec issue this should help you determine that. Basically it is a vst based player built around ffmpeg. https://vidplayvst.com/index.htm
  22. That board is on my list. Lots of positive reviews. The limitation in sata ports shouldn't be a big deal in my case. 6 is good (for me) even giving one to the dvd burner.
