    Trying to understand an english phrase

    Great post, particularly on the use of score as a synonym of the number 20. I doubt, however that the usage has anything to do with the price of drugs. The bible refers to a human's God-given life span as "three score and ten" years. And in 1865, US President Abraham Lincoln famously (to Americans at least) started his Gettysburg address with the words, "Four score and seven years ago...".

    Ryzen 3950X - The Heart of Your Next DAW Box?

    Yeah but 16 cores, c'mon man! 😎 Cant wait to hear what you find with the 3950 in your tests. The heat generated by the AMD part looks to be quite a lot less, food for thought there. And I see little in the way of talk about TB3 with these x570 boards. I hate to think I would have to wait (and pay!) for x590. My boxes are used for for work as well as DAW so the additional cores are welcome, especially at that price point! Besides, I'm pretty confident that the 3950 single thread performance can beat what Im getting now with my i7/960 X58 build. At least I hope so!
  4. I honestly don't remember. It was with Sonar 7, I remember that much. 😀
  5. I'm not seeing a lot of downside here. https://www.forbes.com/sites/antonyleather/2019/06/14/will-amds-749-ryzen-9-3950x-really-beat-intels-mighty-2000-core-i9-9980xe/#39c8539043eb

    How long have you been playing the guitar?

    Started playing 12 years ago. I'm 62 now. Wish I'd started earlier but there it is.

    Help suggest improvements to the mix on this song

    Michael, you might consider posting your question in the songs forum. I got a lot of great mix-related feedback on my projects there.

    Causes of Vocal Distortion

    +1 on a cheap mic. Love 'em, that's all I have but man, that fizz. A problem I also battle constantly comes from recording vocal takes in a poorly treated room. This results in a relatively high noise floor which, after a compression stage tends to distort the signal. So even though your gain staging was dead on, if there's noise in the chain it will get smooshed into audible fuzz.

    Hey Bandlab...

    Glad you found the answer! I had lots of stability issues with CbB. I tried everything I could think of, and nothing helped. After a lot of digging around I found Windows 10 system file checker, and that stabilized things nicely. If others are having issues and nothing in this thread has helped, you might wish to check out this link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4026529/windows-10-using-system-file-checker

    The Great Shutdown - What have we learned?

    Yeah, I suspect lots of things fell through the cracks around the time BandLab acquired Cakewalk IP and launched the new product line. Contributors like @MUDGEL and @Craig Anderton are pretty valuable to a product community and while I don't know for certain, it's seems likely (at least to me) that no messages were intended by the silence from BandLab. It's good to air these kinds of things so that steps can be taken to address any oversights that may have occurred.

    Stem files: How do I use these?

    Bleh! I'm glad I don't have to deal with that kind of cognitive dissonance.

    Demo Mode

    For the sake of folks who may at some point in the future find themselves in a similar pickle, perhaps you could share how you resolved the issue?

    Melodyne Percussive/Melodic Fix?

    Gosh it's nice to know I'm not the only one seeing this.

    The Great Shutdown - What have we learned?

    I never really stopped using Sonar. I was going to keep using it till it wouldn't go no more and then deal with the problem when that happened. I did poke around with other DAWs though. I have MixBus and Reaper in addition to Cakewalk. In both of those DAW's I keep reaching for stuff that isn't there. Well, I know that the stuff is there, I just kept not finding it. I found MixBus charming and I like it but I don't really use it. I'm just not smart enough to figure out how to make mixes that sound good there. To me Reaper's UI is like watching a 1970's cheap action movie. In particular I dislike how automation lanes are laid out. It's nice to see and have at everything at once but all that information on the screen confuses and angers my amygdala. I must have gone through about a gazillion themes trying to find one that worked for me.

    I lost all my BT plugins that came with Sonar :(

    I know the BT plugins get slammed by some, but I've always liked them and the special little sugar they sprinkle everything with. Guess that was a little off topic. My bad.
