  1. Very few Windows programs use ASIO drivers. 

    Even those capable of using ASIO driver do not necessarily need to use it. 

    Programs that only play audio do not need to use an ASIO driver.

     

    Whether multiple programs can use the ASIO driver at the time depends on the driver.

     

    That said, the preference Share Drivers With Other Programs is well documented. This link is from SONAR X3. 

    The same process was renamed in the last version of SONAR and CbB still refers to it as Suspend Audio Engine When Cakewalk Is Not in Focus

    The new name better describes what the process actually does.

     

    In order to hear the DAW when another program has focus, disable Share Drivers With Other Programs.


  2. When the CbB documentation refers to  clip linking it means having the SAME clip referenced multiple places in a project NOT sequentially linking different files during import. This allows one to edit one clip and affect all the other linked copies of the clip.

    Bundles are a proprietary format for storing the project and audio data into a single file. This had nothing to do with importing data from other DAWs.

    Revisions are files created by the CbB version control system. Again this has nothing to do with importing data from other DAWs.

     

    It seems you have a collection of Broadcast Wave Files exported from Radar 24.

    When it comes to importing BWF the only relevant portion of the CbB documentation is timestamp setting in preferences.

    During import CbB can position the files on the timeline based on their embedded timestamps.

    Other than their position on the timeline, CbB has no idea how the files are organized.

     

    If you know the track the files belong to, they may be imported one track at a time by

    1. Create a track
    2. Open the take lanes
    3. File > Import > Audio
    4. Select the clips to import in the track and click OK

    That said, I do agree it would be nice to have a "you have 5 days remaining to reactivate Cakewalk" toast or something like that, which will also encourage you to get a new version. It's the best of both worlds in that case.

    A toast message appears when there 14 days left in the current activation period.

    I looked the regsvr32 command up. It registers dlls. For other plugins Cakewalk appears to register them on startup during scan. Would it be a good idea for MIDI plugins to be registered the same way?

    DX format plug-ins are registered using regsvr32.

    MFX are a type of DX format.

    The DX plug-ins bundled with CbB are registered by the installer calling regsvr32.

     

    VST2/3 plug-ins are scanned by the plug-in scanner.

  6. Looks like you are using "Sort by Manufacturer" layout and the developer did not assign a manufacturer in the plug-in.

    Because the manufacturer string is empty the plug-in sits at the same level as the Cakewalk FX folder.

    This is normal.

  7. Copy the dll to the path shown in the plug-in manager if it is not already there

    Open a command window as administrator and type

    regsvr32 /u path_and filename_shown_in_the_plug-in_manager

    regsvr32 correct_path_and_filename

     What worries me now, if BandLab goes under, Cakewalk will stop working, as it relies on the online registration. What highlighted this is my mind was when I stopped using it for a while, and I had to re-register it. If BandLab were no longer responding to eable the registration, I would of been screwed.

      • Load from Workspace. Lists all settings that can be loaded by a Workspace. When you create a new Workspace, all current settings are initially saved with the Workspace. From there, you can clear any settings you don’t want to load when you select that Workspace. These settings also determine which settings are overwritten in the Workspace the next time the Workspace is modified. The options are as follows:

  10. Download either the Win 64 VST, Win 64 VST3 or both (although you really don't need both formats).

    The download links are on the right side of the page linked above.

    Run the file(s) (they are exe installers).

    The installers will ask where to put plug-ins.

    The VST2 plug-ins can go anywhere but Cakewalk defaults to looking in "C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\VSTplugins".

    I like to create manufacturer folders under "C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\VSTplugins" so I created "C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\VSTplugins\Blue Cat" and told the installer to use that folder.

    VST3 plug-ins should always go into "C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3".

    If the installer permits it (and Blue Cat does) I add a folder for the manufacturer. So the VST3 Blue Cat plug-ins are in "C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3\Blue Cat"

     

    By default, Cakewalk will automatically pick up the plug-ins if they are installed in the scan path.

    I created a MIDI track with some MIDI notes and CC1 events in it, put the CC1 controler pane in focus then Edit>Select>All and hit Delete. It did the same ctrl+A would do - select everything along with the notes - and deleted all.

    Was hoping for a quick way to select just the control events in the CC1 pane but it seems there is no quick way, only through By Filter or manually with lasso...?

    Yeah, select all does not work.

    I though I had already deleted that from the message.

    It's gone now

    One way that does not involve selecting events is converting the controller to an envelope and deleting the envelope from the track view.
