  1. Hi Taja and welcome to the Cakewalk forums. I am guessing that you're recording MIDI into Cakewalk. If that is the case, what virtual instrument are you using? Seems it may be the preset on your VSTi. However, if you are attempting to record the sound of your CLP-820, that would require a different connection to Cakewalk altogether. Also, are you using an audio interface in the process? If so, what kind is it and is it the way you are connecting MIDI to your PC? Kind regards, tecknot
  2. Hi Diego and welcome to the Cakewalk forums. The only way to record the audio (sounds) from your Motif is to connect the audio outputs your computer via an interface. Unfortunately, the only signal coming out of your Motif's USB cable is digital (MIDI). As for the VST problem, what type of VSTi's do you have available? Do you see your Motif as an available input device in your MIDI track? Kind regards, tecknot
  3. Hi Jimmy, What type of sound card are you using? Kind regards, tecknot

    Cakewalk is actually a professional digital audio workstation software. If there is a weak part in your DAW, it's your sound card. If you want to get serious with recording, then an external sound card is the way to go. It doesn't have to be expensive or a "pro" model, but relying on your Realtek card is troublesome. Also, the Realtek ASIO driver is the worst. At this point, I would suggest using WASAPI Share driver mode. I'm not sure that will do, so I strongly suggest at some point you invest in an external sound card. You'll be surprised by the quality and ease of use a better card will give you. I hear your frustration, but I hope my advice will give you some incentive. Kind regards, tecknot
  5. Hi David and welcome to the Cakewalk forums. All you have to do is set your input in CbB (Cakewalk by Bandlab) as a stereo instead of mono left or right. Kind regards, tecknot
  6. Hi Nigel, I suggest importing your MIDI after you set your desired tempo. Kind regards, tecknot

    Hi Richard and welcome to the Cakewalk forums. To eliminate the velocity tails in the Track Pane, simply click on the MIDI tab in the menu bar and pick/click on Show Velocity. Kind regards, tecknot
  8. Hi Steve, Making sure your internal sound card is "active," as oneofmany suggested and be sure to change your Driver Mode to WASAPI Shared under Preferences | Audio | Playback and Recording. Most, if not all, internal sound cards do not work in ASIO mode. Kind regards, tecknot
  9. Hi Mark and welcome to the Cakewalk forums. I am not sure about this but maybe this is another Workspaces issue. If you look to the upper right corner of the Cakewalk window (next to the minimize, resize and close buttons), there is the Workspaces drop down. From there choose None at the top of the context menu. If that doesn't solve it, then I am not sure what is preventing the Video window from popping up. Kind regards, tecknot
  10. Hi Zer0Monk and welcome to the Cakewalk forums. If you are recording to Track 1 and your MIDI is going to Track 2, it could be you have "Allow MIDI Recording without an Armed Track" selected under Perferences | MIDI | Playback and Recording | Record (first option). Check that out and get back to us if you need further troubleshooting. Kind regards, tecknot

    Sample packs

    You can find free samples and samplers here on KVR audio.com https://www.kvraudio.com/ Kind regards, tecknot
  12. I would suggest changing your driver mode and your buffer settings. Kind regards, tecknot
  13. Hi Fawudd, There is no simple way to get a Cakewalk installation onto a new workstation. It will be a matter of reinstalling the whole kit and kabutile. However, you can save yourself from some reconfigurations by saving your personal folders such as templates (project and track), screensets and workspaces, preferences, (plugin) presets, etc. Also, you can save the samples for your instrument plugins onto a separate drive to avoid their reinstallation. A little time and maintenance prior will save you a lot of time (and frustration) later. Kind regards, tecknot
  14. Hi Richard, Turn on Input Echo and you should hear your plug-ins in real time. Kind regards, tecknot

    Music ownership

    Hi Rudransh, The material you create with Cakewalk is yours and you can do with it what you wish. I suggest you copyright your works if you plan to release it to the public. Kind regards, tecknot
