  1. I guess what the video shows is a delete, an undo then pan to show only track 23 is selected. Have you tried to save the project, close and then re-open it then perform the delete?
  2. That is the link to a page holding the video. It is usable but I prefer to embed files in my posts. To do this, your account images then click on the file to get a screen like the one I posted above. This has the BBCode which will embed the video into a post.
  3. Host the video on another site. I use imgur.com for all images and videos. This way I don't have to worry about this forum's user upload quota. After uploading a file to imgur, click on it then click the copy button next to the BBCode and paste into the post here, like this
  4. A couple of EQs too. However, Softube went out of the PC module business in April 2020. They broke all the PC modules with the update that month. AFAIK the only way to use Softube PC modules is secure a release prior to April 2020. One of the problems with the PC module format is the tiny UI. Most 3rd party PC modules are defeatured versions of the full size VSTs. The only PC module to address this is the Quad Curve EQ. I believe the flyout feature used by the EQ is not part of the PC spec. One of the issues with FX Chains in the PC is its strict adherence to the PC module size. Having the ability to change its size or having a few predefined sizes would help quite a bit.
  5. Of course, there is no reason a PC module cannot be used in other VST hosts. While Softube is effectively out of the PC module business, the PC modules they sold used the same dlls as their VST plug-ins. The CA-2A is another example of a dual format PC/VST plug-in. Plug-ins in PC format only were made or contracted by Cakewalk. All PC modules sold by 3rd party manufacturers also included more popular formats
  6. https://www.roland.com/us/products/fa-66/downloads/
  7. The DAW will not dither in this case. Dithering is only possible when bit depth is reduced.
  8. That is the channel drop down. The bank drop down is below to the left; the patch drop down is immediately below the channel drop down
  9. Unlike the rest of the forum, the Q&A section defaults to sort by vote. To see posts in chronological order, click the "Sort by date" button on the right below the OP.
  10. The channel, bank and patch drop downs may or may not be visible in track header depending on your workspace setting and track control drop down setting but they are always visible in the track inspector. Pick a bank (C points to the bank drop down) then select a patch from the drop down below the bank drop down. Another way to change a patch is click on the patch name in the appropriate channel in the plug-in itself
  11. Clip length may be changed holding CTRL+SHIFT and dragging the edge of the clip
  12. If Preferences > Audio > Playback and Recording Remove DC Offset During Record is enabled, turn it off.
  13. Currently, selection length is displayed in the large Export Module
  14. That or use one MIDI track and a drum map routing the data to up to 128 synths along with an equal number of audio tracks.
  15. I consolidated all my DP, Rapture and Rapture Pro sample libraries into one big folder several years ago. Since that time, I have built a couple of machines and have not relied on installers for programs or samples. Instead, I use the copy process detailed above along with directory junctions pointing to the Rapture Pro sample library for DP and Rapture. While I have not tested all 20000+ programs I am reasonably certain the method works. Before posting I checked a couple of the Holiday Pack programs.
  16. Native VST support was added in SONAR 6. SONAR 4 used a VST-to-DX adapter.
  17. Sfz files mostly contain instructions to the plug-in about where the samples are located and how to play them. Rarely do they contain the actual sounds used by the plug-in. In DP like all the other Cakewalk sfz engine synths, sfz files are part of a hierarchy used by the plug-in. Programs may contain multiple sfz files which in turn may reference multiple samples. IOW for a package like the "Holiday Pack" to work there are usually three parts installed: Programs - these go in "C:\ProgramData\Cakewalk\Dimension Pro\Programs" Sfz files - by default these are found in "C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\Dimension Pro\Multisamples" Samples - by default these are also in "C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\Dimension Pro\Multisamples" If you have access to the old machine, copy the entire "Dimension Pro Holiday Pack" folders from "C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\Dimension Pro\Multisamples" and "C:\ProgramData\Cakewalk\Dimension Pro\Programs" After copying both folders open up the DP program browser and click the F5 key to refresh the list.
  18. Yes, either with the MFX Event Filter plug-in forcing the channel using the channel drop down in the track or a drum map
  19. I might have made the process sound smarter than it really is. The DAW defaults to the first MIDI output selected in preferences. By going to the Add Track menu and selecting TTS-1, the plug-in is added along with the instrument track to send the plug-in MIDI and receive audio back from it. The DAW does not natively contain a synth engine to interpret MIDI data into audio. This is a job for plug-ins or external hardware synths. It has always been this way. Cakewalk includes several synth plug-ins and all PCs contain the MS GS Wavetable synth, a very basic GM hardware synth. Generally, if one does not have other hardware synths, it is best not to rely on the MS GS Wavetable synth instead use TTS-1 for General MIDI and have nothing selected in the MIDI output devices preferences. When no MIDI output device is selected in preferences, upon opening a MIDI file the DAW will automatically add and setup TTS-1 to play the MIDI file.
  20. The difference between inserting a MIDI track and the Add Track menu is adding a MIDI track does not necessarily result is MIDI data going anywhere useful. The DAW makes a guess where to send the MIDI data, but this may not be very helpful. by default, the Add Track menu adds the TTS-1 plug-in along with an instrument track. An instrument track is a one-track presentation of an audio+MIDI track pair to handle the I/O for a synth plug-in. Consider browsing the tutorial section of this forum. There are quite a few videos that may be helpful.
  21. If antivirus software is running, make sure to exclude at least CbB.
  22. To monitor any plug-in that has no data in its tracks must have input echo enabled. Input echo is not necessary when tracks have data because the data is driving the plug-in. Input echo may be enabled on as many tracks as necessary, but it is important make sure the appropriate inputs are set for all tracks. That said, keeping input echo to a minimum is a good idea. It is very easy to have unwanted data coming into a track with a bad input setting.
  23. Not sure what settings you are referring to, but the first error indicates a re-install. The second error is a setup problem.
  24. If the install option was missing, it means the clean install instructions were not followed and the registry entries were not removed. Clean up the registry and the re-install process should work.
