  1. This is one of the best update ever... I finished 3 songs from scratch to master in 2 consecutive days since installing this EA... I guess the update brings some positive hocus pocus good energy to my mental state to work faster and better... Yay! WTG team!
  2. Ozone has been great mastering tools for years! I have no doubt about its quality. But I'll wait until few more months (could be a year) before I upgrade to see more review on their new release. I'm still using Ozone 6 and I'm happy with it.
  3. 1. Even when you collapse the Multi Dock, the tabs for those "views" should remain visible on the bottom. 2. Edit --> Preferences --> File --> VST Settings and un-check "Recycle Plug-In Windows" . If it's checked, CbB will only allow 1 VST instance to be visible at a time. 3. It is very common by design that many other Windows application (like CbB or firefox) to not remembering the Fullscreen status when you close the application. Means if you close the application in full screen, the next time you re-launch the application it will open in last opened size without full screen status.
  4. The real challenge (at least for me) in track view is to find the spot where you can actually select and drag the track to new position. You need to aim your mouse to perfect location in the track for the cursor to be able to select and drag. I find the easiest spot to find is somewhere around the volume slider.
  5. Edit --> Preferences --> MIDI --> Playback and Recording. Is everything checked to record?
  6. Can you attach the mentioned midi file for us to open and see?
  7. Yes, actually the limit is imposed by the MIDI standard which almost all synth followed. For years, many manufacturer tried to build more than 16 channel capable synth (For example Roland SC88 sound module which is capable of playing 32 parts on 32 channel), but they require two MIDI in port to access the channel 17-32.
  8. It supposed to import as 2 track mono (L and R) , even if you only select one audio track when importing, Cakewalk will create additional audio track for the R part right after the L track. BTW, are you the same AlChuck (Alan) from hr.com bbs? Glad to see you here Hope everything is well with you bro.
  9. This is interesting, I will test as soon as possible. The problem is I need to test in live band situation which is not going to happen so very soon due to social distancing thing. I'll make sure to test every possible setting before I replace the HDD. I'll post the result here.. Thanks!
  10. By "selected all tracks", do you mean MIDI track or audio track? Does the new measure inserted have same time signature with the rest of the song?
  11. You can find info here: Hope it helps.
  12. Thanks for confirming that the processor and the RAM is not the bottle neck in this situation! I knew it can handle the job. 😉 My Core2Duo PC above was built around 2009 as second DAW to replace the stacked ADAT system to record 16 audio tracks simultaneously. During those days, we still used acoustic drum with many mics involved. The purpose of the PC was only to record, capturing live band. I transferred the captured material to my main DAW for editing, mixing, etc. It worked just perfect with Sonar 8.5 (if I'm not mistaken), never had any problem with it for years. I believe the Deltas are fine. It was perfect solid machine. In 2012 we replace the acoustic drums with E-Drums (Roland TD) so we no longer record drums as audio, instead we capture the MIDI and use sampler (Supperior drummer). So I never have recorded more than 8 audio track simultaneously anymore since then. I use this second DAW also as my "mobile DAW" whenever I need to track in clients location. I never feel the need to upgrade anything since it worked just perfect. The only thing I did was replacing the HDD 2 times after some years. I have a feeling the bottle neck *could* be the HDD cache. In 2009, I used 2x 2TB HDD with 64MB cache. Now, it's running 3x 500GB with 8MB cache. I heard the cache will affect how fast the HDD writes in multi track situation. I'm not sure, I haven't tested it. If anyone has valid info, please let me know.
  13. Yes, the 'Remove DC Offset During Record' is ticked (selected). I think I never touch that since installation, I leave it there by default. Do you think it may cause problem in some case? The ThreadSchedulingModel=1 Is there anything I should pay extra attention in case of 12+ tracks simultaneous audio recording? Config, hardware, or anything that may cause bottleneck? Thanks! 🙂
  14. If you want to use "drag and drop" method, then (to avoid confusing) make sure you insert soft synth NOT as simple instrument track. Make sure you open the Insert Soft synth Options and select "Midi Source" and "First Synth Audio Output". You will have 1 synth track and 1 empty MIDI track. Then you drag the MIDI file into the empty MIDI track. That's how to do it properly. Hope it helps.
