  1. I figured it out I think. Here is what appears to work 1. use the File command to open the old WRK file 2. Immediately do a "Save As on that file using the File command in the options choose file type MID type 1 and save the file 3. Close the file you were working on 4. Reopen a new copy of the MID file you just saved Plays fine now. The softsynth TTS-1 pops right up I DID actually find an old laptop running Cakewalk 8.0 that plays the WRK track directr;ly and stores as MID as well But I will not need that now.
  2. Thanks for all the help. I'm just starting to get back into this after quitting 20 years ago. But a lot of stuff has changed. For starters, my WRK files instruments are all set up for a Yamaha keyboard before the Roland scheme was generally adopted, and they had a totally different idea on drums. But other voices are different as well... Now I am using some of the tracks I made to accompany photo videos, and I have to convert the mid files into mp3. But there is a free on line program that does a good job on that.

  4. I'm still stumped. can anyone get a track like the attached file to actually play sounds? And if so how? TOCFINE.WRK
  5. I have a big pile of music that I step entered using various old versions of Cakewalk over a 10 year period of my life. Many of these files I made into MID files years ago using an old disk version of Cakewalk, but many never got converted. I am just getting back to this after years of simply storing the old files. I can load a file into the new Bandlab version of Cakewalk with a MID extension and the file plays fine as a new Cakewalk project. But when I try to load a file with a WRK extension, Cakewalk seems fine and the file appears to load and play and even notes an instrument it is using, but no sound comes out. There must be a trick to this of some sort to get a WRK track to play sound. I have Cakewalk by Bandlab installed on my Win 10 laptop and I also installed the 4 add-on programs Can anyone help me? Where did I mess up? BLCKBIR2.WRK
