  1. Just an update on my ilok experience on moving to my new PC as this thread has resurfaced. Absolutely seamless. Deactivated on old PC and reactivated on new without a hitch on all 15 instruments. Thanks for the help on this.

    I wish I could say the same about the Steinberg elicencer - nightmare until I found some thing buried in their website saying - 'if your new elicencer doesn't have a number download the elicencer helper programme which will reinstall elicencer'. Until I found that I was tearing my hair out!

  2. Scottish folk rock band Runrig. The golden voiced Donnie Munro left to be a (sadly unsuccessful) Labour politician - though their ex keyboard player had more success in the SNP. I didn't think anyone could replace Donnie and, although it took a while for me to get used to his voice, I reckon Canadian Bruce Guthro did an amazing job. The band have recently retired after well over 40 years of existence.

  3. Progress has been made! The Apro is talking to the PC - transport and keys working. Rotaries and sliders doing something but need to look at mapping when I'm more lucid! Apro Control Surface PlugIn now showing up. The secret seemed to be to allow both Apro1 and Apro2 to be enabled on input (though this didn't work the first time I tried it!). Maybe a few restarts helped! The Cakewalk documentation is a little confusing as it tells you to enable Apro2 as an out and that is not an option - only Apro is showing. 

    I'm sure they could have made it easier!

    Thanks again for the help!

  4. @michheld - thanks for those links - I will have a look through to see if I can find anything

    @rsinger Yes it is there as an option in Preferences. I did enable A-Pro 1 when A-Pro 2 didn't work and initially got midi in from the keys but nothing from the transport.  

    As well as the Control Surface Programme for Sonar this is at the Roland site and I am wondering if I need to install it - I don't recall having to previously https://www.roland.com/uk/support/by_product/a-800pro/updates_drivers/ecee5a7c-7391-435d-839b-5511031afcaa/

    I will continue my investigation.

    Thanks for the help so far

  5. I just knew this would be fun from previous experience with old PC

    I have connected the APro 800 over USB. Set the midi controller inputs and outputs as detailed in the manual. Midi on the track set as Omni. No midi coming into Cakewalk from the controller keys and transport buttons do nothing. I also installed the APro  Controller Surface Plug In software from this page but other than an uninstall file there doesn't seem to be any sign of it https://www.roland.com/uk/support/by_product/a-800pro/updates_drivers/81c44b5d-6d6d-4f89-9eeb-4ce56e848573/

    Any suggestions please? 

    Thanks in advance
