  1. I had a similar problem pop up about a month ago. In my case, the cause was a newly detected conflict with the optional midi device provided by my audio interface. This was one that had never been used, but a windows upgrade started to engage. I was able to resolve my issue by disabling the unused midi interface in the device manager. If you're having he same problem the evidence will be in the device manager.

    Volume limit? Help

    Nigel, I'm finding your explanations on gain staging to be very helpful. I'm also starting to see why some of my older mixes have worked and others are just muddy messes, even as I was following what I thought were best practices. To top it off, you introduced me to the Creative Sauce tutorial series. Thanks or accelerating the learning curve.
  3. Windows 10 has recently been asking me to setup preferences regarding (MS) Notifications&Actions, and Focus assist settings. This is not to be confused with CbB Toast notifications, which I find to be very helpful. These MS "features" (Settings/System/Notifications&Actions) seem intended to cut down on overall nuisances/alarms for general usage in working in Windows. However I can't help but think that a failure to optimize these settings would result in either robbing resources from Cakewalk on one side, or potentially introducing untimely alarms and workflow interruptions to the recording or playing process. 1). Is this a valid concern? 2). If so, are there recommended settings or workarounds to minimize these issues? Thanks in advance.
  4. Thanks so much for the uploaded sample. It brings back memories, and I hope to incorporate it shortly into an old piece I worked on. My delay in responding was no better, but I'm happy to report that I was unplugged for some less hectic distractions. Regarding the original question of sampling plugins, I still haven't decided between the more tweakable samplerobot pro, and the simpler less expensive samplit option. My research corroborates the comparative descriptions, but it's still tough to tell which plugin would satisfy me in the longrun. I'm leaning towards simpler cheaper, but would I appreciably be cheating the samples out of control and fidelity?
  5. I was going to ask about a couple of U110 patches. It's been laying dormant in my rack for well over a decade. But go figure, I plugged it in after lunch, and I think I may be able to get it to function long enough to sample a few patches. If you ever do have an opportunity as a low priority, I would like to request S Bass 3 (MT-32: sold it in the 90s). I'm not sure what format to ask for, but I think sfz might be a safe bet. Thanks for all of the suggestions. It's exciting to look at the rack and raise the dead.
  6. Thanks Msmcleod. The product description sounds just like what I was looking for on the still functioning Roland, Yamaha, and Korg devices in my rack. I'm assuming that Roland RS-PCM samples cannot be accessed without a corresponding working device.
  7. Over the years, I've lost more the a few favorite hardware instrument patches as synth lifecycles reached failure mode. On occasion I've seen reference to sample emulation, but I'm unfamiliar with any reasonably priced products or the process to port these samples into. Theo only exception were VST plugins that I found for my dead EMU synths. I still have a couple of rack synths that haven't quite bitten the dust yet. Could someone suggest a way forward to extend patch life? Thanks
  8. Variorum, I missed this when it was first posted. Thanks for the midi plugins, especially the group transpose. I'm not sure how you do this, but it's a slick solution to a request that I had made.
  9. The limitations of my own challenge were clearly beyond me. Msmcleod's list (Spacebar, W, R, Ctrl Z, Ctrl S) is actually more accurate for my own Gotta haves. Being a shortcut junkie, these are as involuntary as breathing. Two others I forgot were transport controls of Ctrl Pgup and Pgdn (prev/next measure) Ctrl-shift Pgup and Pgdn (prev/next marker) I’d never used Alt-z before yesterday, but I can see where I’d also make use of that as well. Are there other shortcuts that would make your essential shortlist (assuming 5 is too few)?
  10. This is just a hypothetical, but I’m curious to know which shortcuts are really being used in the community. Let’s say you have a limited time to create a major project from Midi through Mastering, but you can only use 5 shortcuts (preset or custom) and no more. What do you choose? And what are the next shortcuts that regrettably wouldn’t make the cut? I’ll start from a hobbyist perspective: Gotta Haves: Expand/collapse MultiDock (D) Maximize/restore MultiDock (SHIFT+D) Show/hide Inspector (I) Show/hide Browser (B) File > Save (CTRL+S) On the Bubble: Piano Roll view (ALT+3) Tough one to lose to manual mouseclick Show Tools HUD (T) I’d just have to keep the toolbar visible in the control bar Patch Browser (;) Just learned about this one on the forum
  11. Thanks for the confirmation, Folks. It's a minor inconvenience at most. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't fixable.
  12. While performing edits to a bass in TTS plugin I noticed that any attempts to affect the Tone Controls (treble,mid,bass gains) resulted in silencing the instrument. I haven't found this reported in either of the forums. If it just doesn't work, not a big deal, because there are a variety of options for skinning the EQ cat. However, if this is a result of a bad install on my part, or a missed patch along the way I'd like to correct it. Is anyone else experiencing this glitch?
  13. I'm experiencing a different error message, but I have not been able to access https://forum.cakewalk.com all day today. Is this still the correct target? Is anyone else experiencing this?

    32 bit plugins

    Thanks to all above for introducing me to a new concept/solution that I believe could be useful for restoring compromised 32 bit plugins. I only understand the broad strokes from the above posts and an obscure mention in the X3 docs. Is the following a reliable doc reference for working with jBridge, or are there better sources available? https://jstuff.wordpress.com/jbridge/jbridge-troubleshooting/782-2/
