  1. Easy to do. Running TTS-1 at 96K is a pain.
  2. Yes, it does. It does not work at 88KHz though. To use TTS-1 with high sample rates requires setting "Light Load Mode" in every instance every time the project is loaded The setting is not stored in the project or the plug-in.
  3. I created a second VST3 folder for the trouble makers (in my case Blue Cat's freeware) and added it to the DAW scan path. After installing SF13, I added the problem VST3s back to the default folder and the new SF13 scanner worked.
  4. Yeah, the Dec 31 expiration is OK if one wants to flip the software but the only thing they mention is how to install.
  5. Use bounce to track(s) then archive the original tracks. This does the same thing as freeze except writes the data to a new track. When using bounce+archive on a soft synth make sure to disconnect the soft synth using the synth rack. The will free up the rest of the resources used by the synth, just like freeze.
  6. 64bit SF12 Pro does support 64bit VST2/3 3rd party plug-ins. I was very happy to pick it up in a Humble Bundle a few years ago, if only to retire my 32bit plug-ins completely. The scanner has issues with a few plug-ins. The SF13 Pro scanner seems a little better. It also has ARA support picking up both Melodyne 5 Studio and SpectraLayers 8 Pro which were already installed. For me, the update is well worth $25 even though I have not used use SF12 (or SpectraLayers) much since getting iZotope RX. It's still nice to have around. Rather than install most of the bundle, I logged into my MAGIX account and registered the products there. For faster loading don't forget to add /NOVSTGROVEL to the SF command line
  7. Have a look at clip selection groups
  8. Instead of Note Off, CbB exports Note On with Velocity = 0 which is considered by the spec to be the same as Note Off. At least that is what I see when reading MIDI files created by CbB using MIDICSV and reviewing the MIDI spec.
  9. Try the Bounce to Track(s) function with Channel Format set to Split Mono
  10. MIDI files only contain MIDI data. They contain references to instruments defined by the MIDI standard only. Usually entire performances are opened in Cakewalk using File > Open from the main menu or the Start Screen. Import is used for clips. Import strips out data such as tempo. When opening MIDI files in Cakewalk, if no MIDI output device is selected in preferences, the DAW loads the MIDI file and sets up TTS-1 (the GM synth included with Cakewalk) to play the file. Once opened, swap out TTS-1 for what ever synth plug-ins you wish.
  11. An audio interface could be a dedicated external device, a card or chip in your PC that converts analog audio to digital data for the DAW. To a DAW a USB microphone is an audio interface as it not only captures audio (the microphone), it contains the hardware to digitize the audio too. For BandLab specific information, the BandLab help page may be a good place to start. That and the BandLab Facebook group
  12. This forum was created for Cakewalk by BandLab. BandLab (the DAW shown in the OP) uses a Facebook group for peer support and discussion. That said, recording volume is set before the DAW. DAWs have no control over audio record level. Lowering the level in the DAW just lowers the playback level.
  13. Try adding an ampsim such as TH3 in the FX Rack on the guitar tracks.
  14. Try enabling Input Echo, the button is to the right of record in the track header.
  15. Not free but can be had at a pretty nice price, iZoptope Insight 2 is currently on sale.
  16. To modify Aud.ini using preferences see http://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=0x22B1C
  17. Wouldn't this be a DAW thing? Just route track midi to selected track? Not all VSTi's can broadcast their MIDI data. If the plug-in has the feature, select "Enable MIDI Output" in the VST2/3 drop down in the standard header. This will make the plug-in available as an input in instrument/MIDI tracks. If the plug-in does not have the feature this option will be disabled. If this is the case, here is a way to drive multiple synths using the same MIDI track
  18. For low latency, performance running the MOTU ASIO driver and interface are your best solution. the DAW uses one ASIO driver at a time. As the interface using the ASIO driver handles all I/O. You could try other driver modes and the internal sound chip to use speakers connected to the computer.
  19. BA keeps track of what it has installed and disables those options once installed. To reset these install options requires deleting registry entries under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cakewalk Music Software\Cakewalk\Installers or use the new Cakewalk Web Installer. Currently it ignores the registry entries.
  20. BandLab uses Facebook instead of a forum. They also have support page and an email address - support@bandlab.com
  21. Drag the upper left edge of the clip slightly to create a small fade-in Edits should be made at zero-crossings when possible. From https://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=EditingAudio.08.html
  22. support@cakewalk.com can reset your old Cakewalk account password
