  1. OK So an enigmatic original post, which I took to be a complaint about a takedown of another thread/post by the moderators (but maybe not), has resulted in two pages of comments without clarifying what the original was about or much of anything else. My $0.02--feel free to run with it:
  2. I understand your reluctance to reinstall Windows, but I doubt you can rely on the fact that your Windows installation used to work fine to rule out any Windows issue. A possible kludge that might work with less extreme effort would be to create a new user account and try to do a fresh install of Bandlab on that account. Another would be to image your existing installation then do a repair install over the original. https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/16397-repair-install-windows-10-place-upgrade.html
  3. The price listed at that link site is $22. 00. Do you have some kind of credit or coupon code that is giving you that price? Never mind...Just like you said price of $11.00 magically appears in the cart.
  4. Before I would replace the liquid cooler I would try testing it. The most common not fan related problem, aside from all the fluid leaking out which should be obvious from minor flooding in the vicinity, would be an air/vapor lock in the system. Bleeding off the air would fix that--the computer cooling equivalent of bleeding your brakes. If you have an air cooler lying around, you might see if that will work. If it works better than the liquid cooler that would certainly suggest the liquid unit is screwed up.
  5. The driver rollback is a Windows process, and would be expected to only affect the driver--it does not affect applications directly. You could be a lot more precise about whether it might help if you knew the current driver was not correct or if you knew the current version of Windows. Unfortunately when you allow Windows Update to update your Windows installation, it does not invariably bring it up all the way to the then current version. Some updates depend on an earlier version already having been installed, and unless you repeatedly run updates you often end up at some intermediate version especially if it has been a while since the last update. I realize that it can be difficult to provide any granular level of help to a naive user by telephone--so the advice may not be anything you can use. Besides, I have no confidence that your problem has been correctly diagnosed at this point.
  6. If your friend can get connected, it would probably be best to update Win 10 to the current version. The problem described in my first link above (which may or may not be your problem) was specific to version 1703 and was fixed by subsequent updates. The driver rollback, if it is available, should not require and internet connection.
  7. Of course we have no idea how much your other programs stress the CPU. It would not be surprising that Cakewalk provides an exceptional load compared to normal usage. It is also not clear what the significance of your computer being liquid cooled is, in a case where you are concerned that it is overheating. A liquid cooler can fail just like an air driving fan, but it is simpler to detect fan failure than other issues. Have you dismantled the system to see if it has coolant left, or run it outside the computer with a fluid source to check that it is pumping, or checked the thermal connection to the cpu and adequacy of the thermal paste? If you are having a cooling problem it is probably best to start with troubleshooting the cooling system rather than imagining that some update in a program is producing a large demand change.
  8. It might even be possible to just roll back the driver: To roll back your audio driver In the search box on the taskbar, type device manager, then select it from the results. Select the arrow next to Sound, video and game controllers to expand it. Right-click the listing for your sound card or audio device, then select Properties. Select the Driver tab, then select Roll Back Driver. Read and follow the instructions and then select Yes if you want to roll back your audio driver.
  9. It is possible that the windows update has substituted a device specific driver that would normally be installed via USB on first connection with a new USB audio generic driver. If that were the case I would expect a complete failure to communicate rather than this odd behavior. In any case it might be worth trying to force windows to recognize the device specific driver and install it. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4021854/windows-10-doesn-t-install-specific-drivers-for-usb-audio-devices-on-t https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/audio/usb-2-0-audio-drivers https://www.minitool.com/news/fix-usb-audio-drivers-wont-install-win-10.html https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware-winpc/usb-audio-codec-for-profx8-does-not-work-for/64aed282-141e-484e-adf9-c51b2cb7a3fc
  10. According to the FAQ this unit should send a stereo out (two tracks) from the Main Mix of the board to the computer via USB. Since it is a mixing board, I would assume that microphone inputs would be controlled/turned on/mixed by use of the physical controls on the board. Once however many inputs are mixed to the board's Main Mix that should be what is received by the computer. It does not use an installable driver.
  11. I am certain that someone will be along to either 1) swear on his virgin mother's grave that he can hear the difference in effects applied at a minimally higher sampling rate or B) demonstrate mathematically that it is indubitably possible that the difference would be discernible over a car radio. I, on the other hand, doubt it is worth any effort at all to resample the project.
  12. IO errors that come and go can well indicate problems with the physical connection of the drive. Dirty connectors and the like can work or not depending on the temperature, vibration or the whims of the gods. It is certainly worth cleaning and re-seating the drive data and power connectors, and maybe switching which connectors you use. You can try to find out if there are logical errors using chkdsk, or surface errors using some third party utilities or the disk diagnostic software available for download from the drive manufacturer, but if you continue to have doubts it might be time to convert the disk to a backup disk for non-critical data and order a new drive.
  13. The title seems to indicate that your organs are "vintage"--and therein lies your problem. Organs, once removed from a living or recently deceased host, can only survive for a very limited time. To be able to work properly they must be reconnected to a recipient within a matter of hours, a time that can be extended by transport under refrigeration, and there is promising work being done on extra-corporeal circulation that may provide an even longer window, but in general it is clearly best to work with fresh organs.
  14. To be clear are you saying that Cakewalk program crashes or that you get a "blue screen" aka Windows Stop Error and have to restart Windows?
