  1. Installed th latest 2022.06 tody then tried to duplicate a few tracks and all it did was create a new empty track. so yes it creats a new track with the same nam as the source track but there is no audio in the lane. Bug?
  2. I'm considering trying a touch-screen monitor for my second screen to view and adjust the mixer just like a real mixer. Has anybody done this? What model are you using, any problems or other concerns? Thanx, Frederick FYI Win10 Pro, Quadro 4000 video card
  3. In the Arranger track, is there a way to disconnect text boxes from the underlying tracks so that I can just slide them around as needed without moving the track contents? YES THERE IS!! Just highlight the box a few times until you don't see the underlying shadow extending down onto all of the tracks below. At this point, one is free to move the text box as needed by itself.
  4. Thanx, the Arrangement track seems to work although I can't do the typical copy and Paste (ctrl V). It lets me copy but "paste" is greyed out. But I can do "duplicate" which is good enough and I can color-code each chord which is very helpful.
  5. I should sing more of an "ahh" sound for both the "III" and "EEE" sounds. That should help a lot.
  6. I think there is a way to add text/chords etc. to the track heads, correct? How do you do it? I would like to place the chords there. Thanx, Frederick
  7. I've got lots of compressors/limiters but notice they don't do much to tame annoyingly loud/shrill, long "IIIII" and "EEEEEE" vocal sounds. Anybody have any ideas how to smoothly tame these sounds. I've tried reducing the gain but even that doesn't do much. Those sounds really leak through and dominate too much. Thanx, Frederick
  8. Waves CLA (Chris Lord-Alga) has several guitar/bass plug-ins that sound good, are cheap and very easy to use. Worth a trial.
  9. It's been working well for the last few months so I endorse it now. I have current versions of both Melodyne and Revoice Pro and that's a nice tandem. Also I love the new Waves Tune that finally has a scalable window and is the only vocal plug-in I know of that can create a nice sounding vibrato. If you have those 3 plug-ins, I think that's about all you need for vocal tweaking.
  10. UPDATE: It didn't go well and I safely deleted my CW files in the Cloud, but don't have anything good to say about OneDrive. I actually was in a chat with a chat person from MS who took me by the hand and helped me set it up but this chat expert didn't realize my smallish "C" drive would be utilized and filled with files during the upload and made my whole computer unstable, a total mess. All I wanted to do was copy and sync my "D" drive CW Projects folder on the cloud. My "D" drive is a separate 8 TB magnetic drive but for some reason, which I think is a default setting, the OneDrive software is designed to work with your "C" drive and it just filled up the 80 GB I had open (my "C" drive is a Samsung 500 GB M.2 style). After it totally filled up my "C" drive I kept getting error messages that I didn't have any storage space. Hunh? How could that be as I was preparing to buy 6 TB of storage? Anyway I was able to "unlink" my computer, then delete everything in the cloud without it also deleting everything on my "D", and maybe "C" drive. Then cancelled my 30 day free trial on the 28th day. Once I deleted everything, including the CW Project files and every link with the word "OneDrive lurking around my computer, my "C" drive got back about 100 GB of free-space (I think I had about 20 GB in my trash folder that I also deleted). Now my whole computer is working very well again and I'll continue to back-up my files with on-site external HD's. OneDrive seems geared to light users with small files on a one hard-drive computer, like students, etc.
  11. I use export to produce the end product MP3 song that I can put on my phone, send to friends or upload to Napster.😏
  12. Assuming you don't have any tempo changes, first highlight the track with the voice-over and hit delete. Then select All of the tracks by using your keyboard and hitting CTRL+A simultaneously, you should see all of the tracks highlighted, then using your mouse simply go to any of the tracks (they should all be lit up) and click on it and hold the left mouse button down, and drag all of the tracks to the left and when you get them all to the left, let go of the left button on the mouse and they will now all be at the beginning. Very simple. It sounds like maybe you don't know how to select tracks?
  13. Bill, first I created a folder on OneDrive called "Cakewalk Projects to be uploaded". Then I created another folder on my PC called "Cakewalk Projects to be uploaded". Next I copied all of my songs from the Cakewalk Projects folder to my new folder called "Cakewalk Projects to be uploaded" on my "D" drive on my PC. I uploaded my Project files from the new folder one letter at a time: for example, all songs that start with the letter "A", then all songs that start with the letter "B", and so on. I did this as I read if an upload goes bad, you have to restart from the beginning. I have so many big files I decided to do it one letter at a time as doing the entire project would take about 12 hours of flawless uploading which I didn't think would/could happen. Anyway, it went fairly quickly with FIOS, letter by letter, and I don't recall any of the letters crashing. After everything was uploaded I changed the name of the folder on OneDrive back to "Cakewalk Projects" which is the active folder on my "D" drive and hope the synchronization is happening but it's not as far as I can tell. I need to figure that out. The only thing that's working "in-sync" is my phone that sends my phone's pictures and videos immediately to OneDrive and annoyingly, it did this on it's own when I first got OneDrive (6TB) installed - I never asked OneDrive to involve my phone and I was going to delete the pictures/videos on OneDrive as I already have them on a Google Drive. But good thing I didn't, as I learned if you delete files from OneDrive it will also delete them from your device, in this case, my phone and they could be gone forever. That would not be good. I created the mirror Cakewalk folder with a slightly different name in case OneDrive started to delete my files from my PC which I've read could happen. Once I got everything uploaded and didn't see anything strange going on, I changed the name of the folder in OneDrive to "Cakewalk Projects" which is my active storage location on my "D" drive. Now I just sit and hope when I add, delete, or edit files in my Cakewalk Projects folder they are also updated in the Cloud and "in-sync" but it's just not happening even though I see that everything is supposedly "in-sync". I need to get into a chat with MS but that's not so easy, they hide their chat links and may want to charge you if you use their help. I was in one chat with them and they took over my PC because my old free version of OneDrive was showing up kinda as my new paid version (6 TB with 6 accounts). It was a confusing mess but now it seems to be working but I'm still trying to tweak the whole thing.
  14. LOL, if I threw away all my sucky trax, I wouldn't have anything to save! Maybe I should just give up music and try golf again.
  15. Discovered my old laptop is so old it's not capable of receiving 5G, so I moved the wifi adapter that is 5G capable, and that I had been using with my desktop computer into the USB 2 input on the old laptop, and immediately it discovered my 5G network and I saw dramatic increases in speed. I also have a 2.4 private, and a 2.4 guest account but I can't ever remember the passcode name of it for guests, lol. I think I'll change it to "guest", that should be easy to remember but I have hundreds? of people every weekend walking right by my front door playing Pokemen and I don't want them connecting to my house. Therefore, I'm not gonna change it but instead will try harder to remember it. One of those Pokemon folks is gonna get hit by a car some day🤨
