  1. This is not a permanent situation. I am sure @Jonathan Sasor is working the issue.
  2. CbB has all the routing needed to capture MIDI from MG2.
  3. Try the WASAPI driver modes in preferences.
  4. Thanks @Jonathan Sasor I did not know personalization would copy those presets.
  5. 2020.11 probably was not necessary but the 2021.06 rollback installer does not add all the presets. Probably, the full 2021.06 installer is enough. If you did not retain that installer, the only way I know for you get get another copy of the full installer is uninstall CbB and re-install. That or wait for the next 2021.09 installer. see the next post for a better solution
  6. Not relying on export presets I am not sure when it happened but I suspect somewhere in the 2021.09 series, they were wiped out. Reinstalling from full versions of CbB 2020.11 then 2021.06 and applying 2021.09 build 120 update the list now shows
  7. Import the file back into the DAW and check the levels.
  8. The about page from Build 120 (Rebuild 2) just shows Build 120
  9. Cakewalk_by_BandLab_Update_Setup_27.09.0.120(Rebuild_2).exe is the installer I downloaded using the link in I cannot speak to the differences, if any, between build 120 and build 120 (Rebuild 2).
  10. There are only 3 presets showing up in the Export dialog
  11. Yes, got build 120 (Rebuild 2) from Maybe this thread should be locked.
  12. The link in the post below goes contains a link to build 114 NOT build 120 Also the subject of this thread is noted as [CLOSED] Cakewalk 2021.09 Early Access [Updated to build 114] I guess the plan is to use the new thread for build 120 but it appears the old build 114 link was not updated in the new thread.
  13. CbB includes extra instrument definitions including some for Roland. The default path is "C:\Cakewalk Content\Cakewalk Core\Instruments"
  14. Preferences > File > Initialization File is a graphical front end to edit Cakewalk.ini values. The per-project value Zero Controllers When Play Stops may help too. This is set in Preferences > Project > MIDI
  15. Looking at the MT Power Drum VST it mostly follows GM MIDI note values for drums by default. Most drum plug-ins support GM mapping even if it is not their default. In general, when drums don't map to the same MIDI notes there are a few of ways to address the issue: modify the map in the plug-in apply a different map in the DAW (this may be done using MFX Transpose or Drum map) move the MIDI data to the note values expected by the new synth Of course, there may be other differences that go beyond note mapping such as how the plug-ins respond to velocity, different articulations and instruments.
  16. Whether a simple zip file or executable installer, when possible this is always a good idea. Some manufacturers allow repeat downloads but keeping backup copies does not depend on their continued generosity.
  17. Finally belatedly pulled the trigger on the book, and within 5 minutes, mind blown. This is from someone who has been using Cakewalk almost daily for 3 1/2 years. I'd love to see an update or addendum with the Arranger Track and Articulation Maps. @Craig Anderton 's book is a great resource. It started as a collection of posts on the old forum. There are more tips that came after the original SONAR book still on the old forum site http://forum.cakewalk.com/Friday39s-Tip-of-the-Week-167-Behold-Dual-Mono-Becomes-Stereo-m3074655.aspx
  18. The free metronome from SoundBytes may be a solution. Here is a short writeup and download link. On reviewing the writeup probably not. Unless one wants to toggle the track on/off while the transport is playing archive may be better than mute and if a synth is involved disconnect the synth too. Because mute may be toggled while the transport is running, whatever resources a track uses are still used when the track is muted. An archive track on the other hand is ignored by the DAW and a disconnected synth is unloaded from memory. To disconnect a synth, in the synth rack click the power button or if the synth rack docked in the browser click on the synth in the synth rack use the synth setting menu.

  19. You must install the samples before they are available to the DAW. If they are delivered as a zip file, they must be unzipped into a folder before use.
  20. The plug-in menu highlight is a regression error. It should look like it does in 2021.06. Expect this to get addressed before the final release.
  21. It is common to see ,DS_Store files in zip files made on a Mac. Zip files made on Macs unpack just fine on Windows.
  22. 2x is the default. You may set the oversample rate as desired either by modifying Aud.ini see http://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=Mixing.25.html or use the Upsample Editor in my CbB Tools suite. Link in
  23. see Improved plug-in exception handling / crash reporting in http://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=NewFeatures.012.html
  24. After playing around a bit with file I think it may be related to the file names. If the files are unzipped in an uncompressed folder and If extensions are turned off in Windows Explorer and the files are only visible in the Cakewalk media browser when "Show All Files and Folders" is enabled - it is likely the files actually do not have the appropriate file extension. To see if this is the case enable "File Name Extensions" on the View tab on Windows Explorer. My guess is the file names will not change. IOW, they will not show the .wav extension. If the files are really wav files adding the extension will make them usable.
