It's started crashing.... in Cakewalk by BandLab Posted 19 hours ago On 7/24/2021 at 2:33 AM, Mark Bastable said: Incidentally, I suspect I'm going through exactly the same process that I encountered when I taught myself a computer coding language thirty-odd years ago - which is that I'm learning things in the order I need them to solve immediate problems, rather than in any simple-to-complex sequence. When I eventually got a job working with trained programmers, it turned out there were some very straightforward and fundamental techniques about which, rather embarrassingly, I had no clue at all. But on the other hand, I sometimes cobbled together unconventional solutions about which my co-workers said, "Blimey, how did you get it to do that?" Which is not to suggest I’m even close to impressing anyone on this forum. I’m a long way from that. I’m just admitting to ignorance. It's not so much a learning curve as a learning splatter. It'll take me a while to get it all to join up. With the complexity of a program like CbB, the learning path can often be dictated by where you jumped on the merry go round. I’ve always recommended getting to grips with the basics and building skills of greater complexity rather than “seeing” a task to complete and only taking those steps necessary for that. You lose cohesion between the various program functions. I understand however that CbB’s depth and complexity do make the “jump on the merry go round” process the more often taken path.
