  1. I tried rolling back to 2022.02 but the problem was now also happening with that version. 🤔 However, your comment about "screen customisation" software did get me thinking.... I use Fences and also MS PowerToys. I have been using Fences for years and it's always behaved fine with other apps. So I tried killing PowerToys first and voila that fixed it! 🙌🏻 Specifically, I use the FancyZones feature in PowerToys with my UltraWide monitor. I then noticed that I was on PowerToys v0.57.2 while v0.59.1 was available. Despite having "download updates automatically" enabled, it hadn't! So I updated to the latest version (0.59.1) and Cakewalk now works fine with Powertoys running. Problem solved, thanks for your suggestions @Ben Staton 👍🏻
  2. I haven't found any other apps that are misbehaving mouse-wise and the issues only started after upgrading Cakewalk to 2022.06. I will see if my spare wired mouse works any differently and also maybe try rolling back to 2022.02. Thanks for your help.
  3. Yes, after opening Cakewalk I tried opening a project - mouse didn't work so I used ALT-F and cursor down/Enter to load the project. When I then click on the file menu with the mouse I immediately got the Save As dialog box as if I had hit File then selected Save As... from the menu.
  4. I'm getting something weird in 2022.06. After loading blank Cakewalk none of the menus work (File, Edit, Utilities and Help) when I click on them with a mouse (nothing happens). Pressing ALT-F brings up the File menu and I can then operate the menus from the mouse but after closing the menus they no longer work again (either mouse or shortcut key). Loading a project from the task bar Cakewalk icon loads the projects fine and the menus seem to work ok, but after a while pressing any of the menus causes them to do something (not sure what they do but I get an hourglass for a short period and the project refreshes) but not open the menu. All other DAWs that I tried were working ok (Reaper, Studio One). UPDATE: I thought I would record an OBS screen capture video to demonstrate the problem, but with OBS recording the problem goes away! Stop and close OBS and the problem reappears. 🤔
  5. Thanks @User 905133 Now you mention it I do recall that limited time deal for TS3.5 MAX to include Syntronik 2. I also have Amplitube 5 standard (purchased on intro when it came out) and Amplitube 4 MAX (part of TS2 MAX) plus all of the artist collections included in TS 3.5 MAX. When I select only Amplitube 5 MAX presets in Amplitube 5 I seem to be able to select any of them without any "missing gear" notifications so I wonder what the Amplitube 5 MAX upgrade would actually get me. My revised TS3.5 MAX upgrade list for $99.99 would therefore be.. 1. Syntronik 2 2. Amplitube 5 MAX (though I already have 4 MAX and 5 Standard plus all of the artist collections included in 5 MAX) 3. TASCAM tape collection 4. FAME Studio Reverb I can't recall when I last used one of the other IKM tape models and I am hardly in need of another reverb so maybe I will wait and see what other offers come up in future and put the money towards EZ Drummer 3 upgrade.
  6. Yes, sounds likely! What do you think they would add to TS4?
  7. Cheers Larry. The upgrade from TS2 MAX for $99.99 looks like a good deal. Then again I picked up so many things on the last group buy. Checking what I already have it would add the following items for me... 1. Syntronik 2 2. Amplitube 5 MAX (though I already have 4 MAX and 5 Standard plus all of the artist collections included in 5 MAX) 3. TASCAM tape collection 4. FAME Studio Reverb Not bad for $99.99.
  8. This works out at 350 GBP inc VAT for seven of their engines, whereas the Output website is offering the full shebang (10 engines and 22 expansions) for 334 GBP inc VAT. The offer has been there since before Christmas and the only Output product I own is Movement.
  9. It's a nice time for a SALE! Spring is here, the sun is out more often for us, it's a little warmer and my eyes and nose are running like a waterfall - so let's have a 30% off SPRING SALE! From now until April 15th, get MegaMagic: Keys, DiscoverStation, UniLofi V1 and over 70 other libraries and save 30% without even needing a promo code! NOTE: Bundles, Unify and Renegade are not on sale. The Wavestate BUNDLE (now with support for hardware and PlugIn versions in the same library!) are on their own 25% off sale until the 15th as well. Join us in tonight's Livestream for a fun exploration of a new plug-in by Spitfire Audio designed by BT and Spitfire Audio for a very unique Cinematic Pad type of library. Also 3 NEW Reverbs arrived this week from Baby Audio (Crystalline), Fuse Audio (VREV-140) and a new breakthru reverb by BT and Unfiltered Audio (Tails) that is TRULY MIND BLOWING. We're going to have some fun - join us if you can! Link here...
  10. Yes it's online authorisation. Beats has been included with Captain Plugins since v5.
  11. I authorized from Captain Chords Epic and also had the unauthorized message initially for the other Epic plugins. However, after reloading all plugins they work fine and I no longer get the message. So try that if you haven't already. Initially I noticed that you still get plain chords rather than "pianistic" as the video above claims. What you have to do is edit the rhythm and select or randomize from the list of rhythms. The How-to guides still link to v5 guides 🤔
  12. I'm enjoying the demo Aidan. Lot's of late 70s/early 80s sounds
  13. I was on an older version and I could only find v 0.3.3 on their website here --> https://support.ujam.com/hc/en-us/articles/4408406593938-UJAM-App-FAQ However, after installing that version it then did what Larry describes above (offered to install 0.3.4 upon exit).
  14. Cheers Larry. I hadn't spotted these before. Nice one 👍🏻
  15. Thanks Larry. They are also doing a special price on the Stardust Tape Echo 201 upgrade for Mercury 4 owners ($10, normal price $29) https://www.audiodeluxe.com/products/audio-plugins/cherry-audio-stardust-201-tape-echo-upgrade Non Mercury 4 owners can also get it for $19 https://www.audiodeluxe.com/products/audio-plugins/cherry-audio-stardust-201-tape-echo
