  1. Wow, now I'm puzzled. So I have, for example, a 24-bit VST Piano, I record a midi track with it, I export as 24bit WAV, but internally CbB is reducing it to 16 bits in the middle of this whole process? So all this time I've been generating fake 24-bit tracks (actually 16 bits internally)?
  2. Thanks @scook. Just to clarify, "Record Bit Depth" refers only to external audio recording, not recordings using VST, correct?
  3. My projects are always 48 Khz 24 bits and to be honest I never realized if there was a shortcut to setting this up. However, CbB is showing 16 bits instead. What's wrong?
  4. Hi, The realism you will get using virtual instruments will depend on many variables: Quality / Price of VST library. There are zillions of libraries, so you should research the best and which ones fit your budget. Ease of use vs. flexibility: Many VST libraries allow you to create realistic sounds with little work, however, they do not allow you flexibilities in different variations; there are other very flexible libraries that are more difficult to use at the same time. Practice: After experimenting with various options, everything will depend on your experience in creating musical works. Humanization is the most important factor after all. There are many tutorials on how to humanize works with VST.
  5. Thanks, Noel, but as you can see in the first post, if I have leave C:\Cakewalk Projects\Audio Data as default audio folder, I can't turn off the option "Search entire PC". My projects are in a second drive and I have more than 1 million files in the entire PC, so definitively it doesn't clean in seconds, but in a dozen minutes...
  6. That's exactly what I was looking for! Thank you again David!
  7. This will clean audio files inside the project, not inside the C:\Cakewalk Projects\Audio Data folder, which is currently the default...
  8. I have all my project on a single folder structure on a specific hard drive. The audio folder is set to the default (C:\Cakewalk Projects\Audio Data). When trying to clean the audio folden, I can't turn off the option "Search entire PC": In the documentation (http://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=0x200E7) it says: "Note: If Project/Audio Folder is set to the global audio folder, Cakewalk will automatically enable Search Entire PC." How can I keep that current audio folder path and search just for my current Cakewalk project folder?
  9. Currently, the keyboard shortcut "S" splits the selected clip at the NOW time. Is there a way to split a clip at the time selected range? For example, as the image below, if I press "S", CbB will split the clip at bar 17. But I'd like it to create TWO splits between the time selected range, ie, bars 19 and 21.
  10. There are no mute notes. Also, I never changed the default CbB theme. Is the default. I've attached a video with a blank project to show this issue. r.mp4
  11. Has anyone seen this topic? Thread merged
  12. This seems to be introduced in the lastest CbB versions: Inside Piano Roll View, every track has a different color. The note velocities might show the same color. However, is being the opposite, ie, when a note is selected, the velocity shows unselected and vice-versa: How to fix this?
  13. Thank you very much for your reply! I didn't know about this, but now, when the problem happens again I'll follow these steps. 👍
  14. I have been using Cakewalk for over 20 years, and one thing that I feel has never changed is the inability to save the project when there is an application freeze. In fact, in some (few) cases, CbB can display a window warning that a crash has occurred and will save the current state of the project before closing. But this is very rare. The most common is CbB freezing and NOT ALLOWING TO SAVE THE CURRENT PROJECT STATUS. I know this is a complex matter and it usually has to do with the plugins that are currently being used and that CbB is not to blame for that, but ultimately it is CbB that freezes and the main problem is: everything that was done (before the rescue) is lost. Knowing this old problem, I scheduled automatic backups every 10 minutes and always have the habit of making a manual save during work (always keeping 4 temporary copies), and every time there is a freeze, I lose a maximum of 10 minutes of work. Even so, sometimes within 10 minutes, a lot is lost, especially when talking about MIDI. So I beg the bakers to improve this process, at least trying to save the project somehow when a freeze is detected. I know this is technically possible.
