    Another thing to try is making sure you have all of the Microsoft Visual Studio runtimes installed on your system.

    Never had this problem, so I'm not sure, but I have seen it happen when programs change installers. The developers' systems of course have every C++ runtime known to the computing world, so they don't find out that there's a problem.

    This was a proposed remedy in a similar thread linked above.

    It does not fix this problem.

    BandLab knows about the problem and reproduced it.

  2. It is true the plug-in is difficult to maintain but I suspect there are quite a few users who find it handy for playing MIDI files.

    Regardless, the problem described in the OP could be a symptoms of a larger issue with the software after

    Opining on the utility of TTS-1 may miss the point of the OP.

  3. If I am reading the OP correctly the larger issue is power conditioning

    If this means the PC lost power, a UPS is in order.

    A good UPS is much cheaper than the time spent maintaining a PC suffering from unreliable power.

  4. So it's day 2 of a project that indicated re-install.

    How much time should be invested in this alternate strategy?

    A simple uninstall/reinstall takes is a few seconds + download time. If reinstalled using the Cakewalk Web Installer, the full CbB installer will be available for future use like maybe a  clean uninstall/reinstall if the simple uninstall/reinstall does not solve the problem.

    If a clean install is required. See this post to avoid losing 3rd party VST plug-ins in the default Cakewalk folder

    If uninstalling is a problem, run the 2021.06 rollback (found in the 2021.09 announcement) and the 2021.04 rollback (found in the 2021.06 announcement) then update to 2021.09. This too will download and run the full 2021.09 installer.

    on the other hand it does not interfere with the native plugin that appears in the pro channel.

    This is an older VST2 version of the plug-in.

    All the Softube PC modules are regular VST2 plug-ins that pull double duty as PC modules.

    Unfortunately Softube broke PC module compatibility over a year ago and they have no intention of fixing it.

    As noted above the VST3 works.

    Thanks for nothing Softube. Worst support ever.


    Update: I have heard Softube has fixed the problem but there is no release date. Until then, the only solution is run an older release.

  6. To switch plug-in layouts click the triangle on the right side of the plug-ins tab


    It may be a corrupted layout.

    The "Sort by" layouts are cached as tmp files in the plug-in layouts folder.

    The default location for the plug-in layouts folder is "%appdata%\Cakewalk\Cakewalk Core\Plug-in Menu Layouts"

    The path is stored in Preferences > File > Folder Locations.

    1. Shut down CbB
    2. Delete the tmp files from the plug-in layouts folder.

    This will force CbB to rebuild the layouts on startup.

    The selectability of where the VSTs will go is greyed out

    This happens when the installer detects a previous install.

    The installer reads the value from the registry.

    Tried that more than once. Performed regedit etc. Didn't work.

    Bandlab is aware of the issue.

    Thinking it may be a problem with BandLab Assistant, I sent an email to @Jonathan Sasor and he replied in one of the threads.

    AFAIK, nothing has changed WRT the installers and the initial thought was the MS redistributable libraries were messed up but this does not appear to be the case.

    I am sure there will be a solution to the problem but it may take a few days.
