    MIDI notes stuttering

    Hello, Came across a MIDI audio stuttering when I am trying to compose some melody notes 😑. Halfway, sound is already dropping Not sure what happened but noticed it after I updated Cakewalk yesterday. Running on a Core I7 16gb Ram. No issues whatsoever before but unbearable dealing with it at the moment. Any ideas please
  2. Many thanks for the response. Sorted out the problem and it turns out to be a simple fix 😄 As you can see from the pic, I just simply need to move the midi notes within the BlueArp track itself so it will recognise what it will play and can finally hear the notes Lesson learned 😊

    Blue Arp not working

    Hello, I'm having a trouble with BlueArp vst and it is not simply doing anything ☹️. I've made sure both tracks got Echo on but still no joy. Any ideas pls. Many thanks.
  4. Hello peepz, Any idea how I can set my preferred colours with the Arrangement section coz everytime I have to open a new project, it just reverts back to its default colours and finding it time consuming to do it all over again. Many thanks.
  5. Hello, Any ideas why I can't load up arpeggiator plugin even though the vst pathway is correct? Many thanks.
  6. Wow thank you very much for this wonderful info 57Gregy

    Piano roll areas guide

    Hello fellow Cakewalk users, Just like to ask some advice pls as I am about to use the Piano roll in a regular basis from now on for my sound production. Basically, just like to find out which areas will you put the bass notes, chords, and melody notes (arp patterns). In short, what areas will be the low, mid and octave areas. Hope that makes sense as I don't have any clue how many keys there are supposedly in a standard piano. Many thanks.
  8. My Cakewalk also keeps crashing after updating to the new version and also turns out, it is somehow not compatible with the new VIsual C+ from Microsoft. I had to delete the new Visual C+ and install it again numerous times to make Cakewalk running as I am in the middle of a project and this is getting frustrating. Any suggestions pls to go back from the previous version without losing my Cakewalk current setups as I fear I have to install every plugins and VSTs all over again. Many thanks.
  9. That didn't worked I'm afraid 😔. Any suggestions?
  10. Hi, Would anyone got any ideas why my piano roll is not showing any note names even though from the Notes tab, it is clearly selected "Show Note names"? I created the notes using the mouse and not from a midi controller. Many thanks.
  11. Hi, Do you know how I can replicate what this guy is using from Bandlab Mix editor with Cakewalk? https://youtu.be/ZLsKTCpP4XE Many thanks in advance. ***Never mind coz it turned out I just need a Noise gate 😅😅😅
  12. Many thanks for the suggestions mate. Just exaggerating on the last part but it is also respecting their "quiet time" as well
  13. Hi, I just like to ask if I purchase an audio interface to use for mixing, like a Behringer UMC22, will that help me hear the "real mix" before I export it as an audio file? I've noticed that my mix doesn't translate well by the time I mastered it and I end up making some adjustments again which is I find it time consuming now, after learning how to mix after 8 months, so still a noob. I know most of you will say that I be better off with a studio monitor, but sadly I don't have that luxury as I work during the days, and evenings are only my free time to work on my craft. I'm sure you can understand that blasting those speakers late in the evening will me end up in a naughty corner with my family. So only option for me is to use headphones and that is connected to my normal PC sound card. Not aiming to be a professional mixer but at least hoping I can make my mix not sound bit amateurish. Many thanks for your replies and suggestions.

    Learning about MIDI

    Many thanks for the advice Michael. That is what really in my mind as I am more interested to add classical instruments in my future projects to give it some more character :)

    Learning about MIDI

    Hello community, First of all, completely noob about MIDI and hoping to learn MIDI with it's vast potential to create audio files from all kinds of instruments :) I've been watching some Youtube guides about using MIDI in Cakewalk and it is really interesting to learn after my 20+ years of guitar playing and how much info and potential skills I am missing out on what it can offer to make my audio recordings move to the next level. I just like to ask if someone would know where I can download some midipack files where I can see how a composer/writer wrote a midi for those instruments and how those notes relates to one another. It's like listening to a song where you have no clue how certain riffs or melodies are played until you've seen it from a guitar tab / piano lead sheet and only then you will understand how/why certain notes/chords works for that particular song. Thought this will help me accelerate my knowledge how to use MIDI for my future recordings. Hope that makes sense. Many thanks.
  19. Many thanks for the suggestion 😄. It turns out I just need to collapse the whole folder first before I can drag it to re arrange it.
  20. Hi peepz, Any idea how I can re arrange the track folders I created? As you can see from the screenshot, I want to move the track folder "Guides" where the "Instruments" folder is but it is not letting me to do so. Many thanks.

    Groove clip looping

    Do you have a pic/video example that you can share to me as I tried Youtube but most contents are not what I am looking for? Many thanks.
  22. Hi Jack, I would recommend you watch this one as it helped me tremendously understanding what needs to be done with a mix on a simple setup. Hope this helps you as it did to me.

    Groove clip looping

    Hello fellow Cakewalk users, Noob here and want some help pls with looping a groove clip. I set my project tempo at 115bpm 4/4 time signature and I got a bass drum loop that has got 128bpm. I've tried using audiosnap to match the project tempo but it is way off so had to adjust the audio transients to make sure it follows the tempo. Want to loop it, but when it I tried it via Loop construction, everything is grayed out☹️. Any advice pls what I am doing wrong. Many thanks.
