  1. According to the details for C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\Shared DXi\Pentagon I\Pentagon I.dll, version was bundled with X3. Not sure what was bundled with SONAR 8. Version loads OK in CbB 2019.01 on my Win10 PC.
  2. If installed following the instructions above, V-Vocal should appear as a Region FX in CbB. Pentagon I is the only plug-in bundled with SONAR X series requiring administrator access to the registry. This may be done by either running the DAW as administrator or modifying the registry as shown in this post. Allowing for the permissions issue should Pentagon fail to load the problem is system specific.
  3. https://www.cakewalk.com/Support/Knowledge-Base/2007013086/Using-Pentagon-I-as-a-Vocoder Usually Pentagon I requires the DAW to be run as administrator unless the registry has been modified. See this post for details. Pentagon I is a 64bit DXi plug-in (of course, there is a 32bit version too). Pentagon I was bundled with SONAR Producer 5 through X3.
  4. Set this drop down to All Keyboard shortcuts are SHIFT+left and right arrow keys
  5. Note the dates on the assets files. These files are part of Gobbler integration in X3. There is a preference setting to suppress creating them in X3. The feature was only in X3. Since Gobbler changed it service years ago, the assets files serve no purpose and may be deleted.
  6. The two programs look similar. That familiarity is a good thing when trying to learn a new version. That said, there have been quite a few bug fixes, enhancements and new features in the years since X3. Whether they are meaningful to you depends on your workflow and if you choose to take advantage of the changes since X3. Here are the SONAR and CbB update notifications. For the most part, it is possible to ignore all the changes since X3 and use CbB just like the 6 year old SONAR X3.
  7. Which version of CbB are you using? Do you use lenses?
  8. If you did not create a single sign on in 2014 or forgot your SSO ID, email support@cakewalk.com. They may be able to help. Of course, all the products you mention were delivered on physical media so all you may be missing are registration codes. All the upgrades for those products are still available in the knowledge base.

    So, the internal chip is set as the Windows default and the sample rate for Windows is set to 44.1k. After verifying the sample rate in Windows using Windows Settings > Sound > Device Properties Advanced tab. Remove or rename Aud.ini in the %appdata%\Cakewalk Core\Cakewalk\Cakewalk Core folder Then follow these directions https://www.cakewalk.com/Support/Knowledge-Base/Audio-Hardware-Setup-Guide?productId=CSPT100&audioDeviceId=135 If MME driver mode works, then try the other modes selecting the one that performs best for your machine.

    Make sure some other media player makes sound. Make sure Windows and Cakewalk are set to the same sample rate.

    I am not aware of any demo projects specifically designed for Cakewalk by BandLab. Could provide a link to the project giving you trouble? It might be helpful for others to look at the project before making suggestions. Other than load and try to run this project, have you tried more simple tests such as creating a project, add an audio clip to it and try to play the project?
  13. The setting is in preferences. CbB must be run as administrator to change this settings.
  14. No, Beatscape was dropped starting with X2. Like the "Loops and One Shots" installer, the synth has nothing to do with Platinum. I just checked the Command Center and my account, the loop libraries are gone. IIRC, they were removed during the shutdown in 2017. support@cakewalk.com may be able to help.
  15. Just to be clear, what used to be called "Loops and One Shots" was reorganized content from Beatscape bundled with X2-3 Producer. This was not part of Platinum. The 3 libraries shown above were part of SONAR installs (including Platinum) for some time. Platinum also included other loop libraries. They should show up at the Command Center top level. These include the Brian Hardgroove Collection (Braintree exclusive), Kick Start Expansion Pack (Everett exclusive) and Big Fish Audio Loop Content.
  16. IIRC, the OP is a native French speaker so I posted a link to the French help. This is the English page. There is a language argument in the url. Notice in the French link "language=2" https://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=2&help=Inspectors.3.html#1220713 Changing this to "language=3" like this https://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=Inspectors.3.html#1220713 calls up the page in English.

  18. I am not sure the function is exposed in shortcut preferences. "Insert Patch/Bank Change" is in the global area. This dialog has a patch drop down and a link to the patch browser.
  19. Don't have to open the inspector, the default shortcut for the current MIDI track patch browser is a semicolon.
  20. Usually activation codes are issued one time and the user is responsible for keep a record of the code. The code may be listed in your old Cakewalk account. It could be a permissions problem. If you have tried running as administrator and still get the error when trying to activate you could try contacting support@cakewalk.com
  21. Don't have the software to test. It may be old enough to require running as administrator to register.
  22. The theme editor is only needed to create or modify an existing theme. It is not necessary if one only want to use themes. The theme editor install details are in this post To add a user theme to CbB, copy the .sth file into Cakewalk Content\Cakewalk Themes. By default this folder is in the root of C drive. Once added to the "Cakewalk Themes" folder, user themes are loaded into CbB in preferences.
  23. The X3e patch is available in the old Cakewalk Knowledge Base.
  24. Enable input echo on the tracks
  25. The default shortcuts listed in the documentation work
