  1. Is there a way of doing what used to be called Auto Level Adjust which would work over an adjustable time constant and strength? Sometimes the band plays louder and then quieter unintentionally during a 3-minute song and it falls on me to equalize the volume. Up to now I have been using splits and applying 0.5dB to 2dB boosts, but it is a coarse rough approach, risking sound glitches.
  2. It seems to only be a problem on old cakewalk projects. It probably means reduced output more than anything because the track does not use the whole dynamic range. Remove DC offset somehow did not correct this. However, VC32 final master mix did seem to correct it. On a separate but related note is there a way of doing what used to be called relatively slow auto level adjust? Sometimes the band plays louder and then quieter unintentionally during a 3 minutes song and it falls on me to equalize the volume.

  3. Thanks all, I will try saving in a new location and delete the contents of the old. However, I have around 200 projects so it will take more time than I have, which is why I reached out. It is complicated by the fact that I have sometimes saved more than one version of the same project. I was thinking it would be nice to have a separate application which cleans the drive over night. I would want to see that it is completely and totally bug free first though!
  4. Hello, I have a number of final mastered stereo audio tracks in which both left and right channels have somehow ended up asymmetrical about the center point of the y-axis in the audio view. If this is what the waveform is really doing electrically, then it probably means some kind of unwanted distortion or at least reduced output, making the track quieter than it should be. I definitely didn't intend this, and the raw audio was correct many iterations ago. Any idea where it is going wrong and if it can be fixed? I am wondering if the older cakewalk compressor might have limited the amplitudes on the +ve side of the y axis only... Thanks
  5. Hello, I have a 3TB hard disk which is almost full of bandlab cakewalk projects, mainly audio, and I believe that there is a way to delete files that are not used anymore. Is there a reliable, bug free and trusted way of doing this? I am looking for detailed instructions because I have not done this before and do not want to mess up. Also importantly I sometimes have more than one copied cakewalk project in the same folder and using the same audio also. Perhaps the solution is to load each project up and save it elsewhere as a bundle and then delete the old folders? Thanks,
  6. Well I tried right click over the keyboard and selected assign drums. I choose general midi drums. Seems to work..
  7. Thanks I will try to find these things tonight. Another problem I have with the SL drum kit which comes with the new cakewalk download is when I enter piano roll view the names of the drums are missing. Pressing the notes play the drums but without the names it is almost impossible to use. Again why would someone design it like that? I just dont get it.. Everyone is new at first at least make it useable for a new user..
  8. Last night I was entering a drum pattern in piano roll view using instrument Session drummer 2 and I accidentally pressed one of the drum fills under kick drum. The description for the fill reads something like H - 7. Now every time I play the whole drum pattern it also plays this drum fill! Yet nothing shows up in any view which I can delete. Why would someone design it like this? I literally spent 2 hours just trying to delete it. I even read the 250 odd page cakewalk manual looking at all references for controllers but nothing.. Could someone tell me how to edit and delete this drum fill? This is the kind of thing which turns me right off a creative project.. Another question I have is, what is the best free drum instrument for sonar bandlab? Is session drummer 3 free? I am only an occasional user so not that familiar.
  9. Thanks everyone for helping me get started with the new CbB cakewalk package. I am glad I changed over, I completed our first song yesterday. Even the same LAME settings ported over which is great. I also remember when it was called Cakewalk before so the name is good for me, providing I can find the new relevant information. It is a better name than Sonar. I especially want to thank the Bandlab team for making all this possible.
  10. I figured it out now. this situation of old and new cakewalk is strange. how can anyone tell the difference?
  11. ok I didnt realize that I had to use bandlab assistant to refresh activation. I thought it would happen without my intervention.
  12. I spent 30 minutes trying to figure out how to activate this new free cakewalk program. I am logged in here on this forum with a bandlab account but when I try to log into this link below my email doesn't work https://www.cakewalk.com/My-Account/Login?ReturnUrl=%2fMy-Account%2fOffline-Activation I have had a lifetime of password pain already. This is too hard. I just want to work on my music. When I try to create a new account it says new accounts are suspended. I am working online why doesnt any of this work automatically is it because of a firewall?
  13. I have 24bit record and 64bit render. might have something to do with it I just changed render to 32bit.
  14. OK it looks like I had 32 bit driver and 64 bit double precision engine. Does the 64 bit engine mean file size on the hard disk is larger or is it just memory calculations?
