    I have an ooOld tiiiiiny 120GB SSD RAID 1 as my C drive. It ran low on space many years before I installed cakewalk, or the GB's of sample data;which all appear to be running on my C drive as far as windows is concerned. What I have done is create junction points onto a larger drive (also RAID 1, but mechanical and huge). an example to create the link. From memory, you first create the destination folder; i.e."H:\JunctionSources\C_Music" The above is where all my samples & patches go.I also have cakewalk installed/running on another JunctionPoint
  2. Actually, scratch that for now. The more I think of it, the more I think that its a bug in the windows media player. I export at the highest bitrate at the best quality. Maybe a little too much for the media player.
  3. Not a biggy by any means, but I noticed it as happening all the time, but more often than not on shorter MP3 exports, that the expected length displayed is shorter than the actual playable length. This can be seen in the attached screenshot of the media player, when it shows the length as being 1 minute 17 seconds, but the track plays for over 2 minutes.
  4. Yep that worked, thanks👍 However, I do also think its a weakness in Cakewalk to not be able to edit the points explicitly in the event view grid itself.
  5. On an old project, I changed a bunch of CC events to an envelope on "Expression"(i.e. cc=100), and now I wish to edit the break-points of the envelope to explicit values. However, I don't seem to be able to edit anything regarding the shape in the event view, only using the graphical interface in the track view . Am I missing something? or is this a known limitation of Cakewalk? I appear to only be able to edit the envelope graphically using the mouse in the track view. I'd like to set the explicit value at the low point (which was possible if it were individual CC events), or even the exact timing of the event. Currently my workaround is to zoom in heaps so that I can get some accuracy with my mouse in the track view, and then zoom back out when I'm done. Not the best when a simple edit/keyboard entry would get me directly where I want to be, and I would not need to mess with my zoom in and out.
  6. i have a TINY old SSD (125GB RAID1, its old and hence small) but I have a heap of programs and samples "installed" on C drive (>400GB), as well as the OS and apps etc. what i did a few years back when it first started to get overloaded/full was create junction points. in the OS, it appears that it physically sits on the C drive (SSD), at a very low system level, it jumps to another drive (a HDD). It is actually used heavily by the windows OS already, so its not something unusual/funky. i have moved my stuff onto my 4TB RAID1 H drive (a large pinning HDD) So my C drive looks like the below in windows explorer (Take note of the different folder icons on the Junction Points. NB: The red circles are simply cut points I added to the image to make it smaller And below is my H drive i.e. the true physical location of the files. An example command I used I have mostly done it after the fact (ie installed to C and then transferred to H). But If you create an empty folder/junction point and then install, I would say it will be installed directly to H. Currently, as I have a junction point on "C:\Program Files\Music Applications" to "H:\JunctionSources\C_Program Files_Music Applications", anything I install under "C:\Program Files\Music Applications\*" will actually get installed to H drive, but appear to be located on C drive to the OS and the app itself. Once its done, its totally transparent to the user, i.e. no need to run as system admin.
  7. Sorry to others for being OT, but you may be interested in the following post in regard to getting Hypersonic working in CW. It worked for me! I haven't used it for long, so cannot speak to its effects on other VSTs
  8. My one loads and runs, but hangs when I try to save the project. hmmm... now to try the bitbridge binary switch trick. Whoo-Hoo! that appears to work!!! Have you seen any downside with this change?
  9. In a bit of a rush right now, but I too have an issue with hyperosonic. see the thread I tested JBridge demo, and it all started to work, but when I purchased the full version, it stopped working. A few months back the dev was starting to try and solve the issue, but I haven't heard from him for a while. I need to chase him up. Basically, even though I purchased the full version, I use the demo version of JBridge, but am limited to 20min intervals. It seems that the saving of the VSTi state causes a hang. The demo does not save the state, so operates perfectly. I use patch changes to select the patch instead of relying on the state of the VSTi on save
  10. AAAAArrrrggghhhhh... I lost my post. So sorry for being short. You missed my original post, the only time I thought my computer was running slow, was when I had "CPU Conservation Mode" accidentally switched on. This PC twidles its thumbs most of the time. I even run a VBox with Win2019 Server edition, running SONAR, while Cakewalk is running on the real PC, operating fine. I also run a VBox of 32b XP when converting my older projects that use a 32B DXi; so I can see what was what and duplicate in the new 64b Cakewalk. The reason I posted details about my crappy GPU was simply to share that even with the crappiest of GPU's, Cakewalk can run fine for some.
  11. To be clear, when I had/saw the issue, it wasn't my now time that I noticed the issue with either. It was basically the whole GUI. Most notably, the meters were being updated very intermittently, and my mouse interaction/responsiveness with the GUI was really very poor. It generally appeared like the PC was extremely overloaded. I would be interested if anyone knows of any on-screen indication when this mode is on? Apart from the poor performance. On a side, although my PC is decent (4,4GHz quad core [a safe overclock], hyperthreaded, with 24GB RAM), my video card is really very poor. I use the onboard graphics card, that came with the motherboard, that I think is >5 years old now. Its an Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000, I'm not a "gamer", so it has done the job for me thus far. I just checked the driver, and that's at mid 2015, which would of been released well after the motherboard, as an update, not originally with the motherboard. i.e.. you would be hard pressed to get a poorer video card than me.
  12. When I first started using Cakewalk by Bandlab (over using SONAR previously), I noticed some strange behavior where, working on one project and the ui was very responsive while on another or a different time, the UI was laggy. i then found that Cakewalk had an option to limit/minimise UI updates. From memory, its the 'pause/break' key that is the hotkey to switch between the two modes. Oh, and my PC is more than powerful enough to handle cakewalk, which is what only added to the confusion. Have you checked this? or is this what you are talking about? a laggy UI? OK, searched the doc for my own confirmation. Its called "CPU Conservation Mode" https://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=SONAR&language=3&help=Troubleshooting.34.html
  13. I am unclear on where you are clicking that does not show the "jump" option? I use Jump more often than not, but to change it, I know that I have to right click on a line, and from memory, I don't think it can be a vertical line or some other strange limit like that. From memory, I make the line a linear gradient by pulling a node horizontally, then right clicking that diagonal line, set it to jump, then move / delete the nodes I no longer need. And as a warning, I have found that Jumps don't play nice when exporting to audio, even though they work perfectly when simply playing back.
  14. ahhh yes, I forgot they sent me a email on receipt. I ignored and forgot it, as it had a bunch of unrelated suggestions for fixing audio dropouts.
