    So it seems you can't drag the vst window onto the multidock like you can the other common windows.  You select it from the widow's menu.  That's how I missed it.

    Yeah--no drop and dragging floating VST windows onto the Multidock.   I click on the top bar of each VST window and choose Dock in Multidock.  If you want the Synth Rack first so you have access that way, you can do that and then dock the VST windows in order.  But, we can't move the tabs around.

    Try holding down the CTRL key when dragging a plug-in UI to the multidock

    From https://legacy.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=WindowManagement.03.html


    To dock a window

    Do one of the following:

    • Drag the window to the MultiDock. To dock a plug-in window, hold down the CTRL key and drag the window to the MultiDock.
    • Click the view’s Docking Options menu, and choose Dock in MultiDock.
    • Click the upper left corner of a window, and choose Dock in MultiDock from the pop-up menu.

    For 32bit plug-ins running in BitBridge, the dockable portion is the plug-in header which is displayed in a second window. To open the plug-in header, hold down the ALT key when opening the plug-in UI. The header window usually opens behind the plug-in UI window.

    About 1/2 hour ago I downloaded CbB Tools again from the link in the post I gave, installed it, and ran VST Inventory.  It found dlls and vst3s.  After the Inventory ran, did you scroll down to the plugins that have a Y [Yes} in the VST3 column?

    Did you select VST3 for the filter and search for Y [VST3 = Y]?  It works here using Simple Match.  

    CbB Tools v2.0.10.

    PS: I have Win 10 Pro.

    It should still report both VST2 and VST3.

    VST3 support was in the first release of the Inventory Tool and CbB support was added when CbB was released.


    In addition to filtering, clicking the VST3 column twice should bubble the VST3 plug-ins to the top of the list; the first click will sort by VST3 placing VST2 plug-ins at the top of the list, the second click reverses the order.


    For best performance, whitelist the CbB Tools process in your AV scanner.

    On Windows, I would need a multiclient ASIO driver for that, and the driver for my PreSonus 1810c is single client. So, that failed. I was hoping to eliminate the Voicemeeter "middleware". Oh, well. And another odd thing. I have a 4K display on my laptop, scaled to 200%. The plugin UI in Gig Performer scales, but in Studio One, it doesn't, making it impossible to see and work with. Sigh.

    Would the BC Connector ASIO driver help in this case?  I did not know such a thing existed until I downloaded Connector v1.2 yesterday. The driver is a separate download on the same page as the registered software links. Hopefully the driver is specific to the software.

    Thanks, I will look at this link in detail, meanwhile, so where exactly ( ie which path) does Cakewalk store the templates that open up when it first starts? For eg "basic" " empty project" vocals etc. It would help to see this so I can get it in my head! I think this is why I'm not getting it, despite its apparent simplicity.

    The project Template path is defined in Preferences > File > Folder Locations

  5. To save a project template, in the "Save"/"Save As"/"Save Copy As" dialog

    1. supply a File Name (the template extension will be added by default)
    2. set Save as Type to Template
    3. set Go to Folder to Template Files (.CWT, .TPL)
    4. Click Save

    Step 3 is tells the DAW to put the template with the rest of the project templates

    For more info see https://legacy.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=Templates_KeyBindings.2.html

  6. Glad safe mode worked.


    With very few exceptions, it is not necessary to install the DAW to get the plug-ins bundled with the DAW. Many plug-ins were updated since 8.5. If one has access to a newer installer such as X2, running an advanced install for the newer plug-ins may be a good idea.


    Sometimes plug-ins were updated along with the DAW, for example the latest V-Vocal is only available in X2a.

  7. FlexASIO is not necessary and may be harmful.

    Unless the factory supplied ASIO driver is defective, there is no reason to look for a different driver.


    Having multiple ASIO drivers for the same hardware can confuse a DAW. Installing FlexASIO along with the UA driver puts this machine in this category.


    The RealTek ASIO is known to be defective. Should this ever be selected as the ASIO driver, a compatibility warning is issued.


    Why the compatibility message appeared then disappeared is likely due to F coming before R before U in the alphabet and the DAWs default driver assignment routine. Although there should probably be a "generic driver" warning associated with FlexASIO too.

    No, not THAT one!  He's still alive at 83, but another Tom Jones who was 95 and the lyricist for the musical "The Fantasticks."

    Lots of confusion going on about that today!

    I doubt Engelbert Humperdinck will ever know this feeling
