  1. Take a look at this thread: https://discuss.cakewalk.com/index.php?/topic/26721-percussion-plug-in-recommendations/
  2. It'll be a self-composing, self-listening and self-reviewing, fully autonomic iDAW.
  3. Seems like sampling range of EZBass is not complete for strings other than G string. Therefore everything played beyond 4th fret on lower strings sounds IDENTICAL to notes played in lower position on higher strings (including open ones). Which is simply not true as far as real guitars are concerned, since the same pitches sound a bit different on different strings. And probably that's why the program will neither let you choose your left hand position nor string you'd like to play on, see: https://www.toontrack.com/forums/topic/ez-bass-questions/page/2/ Apart from that - well featured and nice sounding VSTi.
  4. Damn, I don't have a banjo! Would you lend me yours? 😜 But seriously, as for network activities - believe it or not - there are other solutions in existence, so there's no need to use your audio workstation to do the job. This could be laptops, tablets or even phones. You may also run systems from Live CD's or from a multiboot disk. In a desktop (or better yet - tower) environment you may swap multiple systems installed on removable disks, thanks to mobile racks mounted in drive bays. Also disk cloning may be an option for some. Are you following the point, Mr. Scruggs?
  5. Guys, John B is absolutely right. This whole security paranoia has to end, eventually! if you're concerned about your privacy and online safety of your audio workstations there's a couple of tricks and rules to follow. So, all you have to do is: 1. Install 900 microsoft security patches to your system and keep updating 150 times a year, at least untill 2025 2. Set firewall rules for hundreds of various programs and plugins (+ check their efficiency everytime you set them). 3. Tweak your OS settings to prevent dozens of potential privacy leaks 4. Get a strong antivirus protection aqainst millions of security threats 5. Keep checking regularly if all those settings, tweaks and rules didn't change due to system updates, as well as to software or human errors 6. Make sure your network drivers are up to date 7. Backup your system daily, just in case: a) some of your software or drivers don't work as expected after next Microsoft update b) your system gets compromised despite strong protectiom measures 8. Make sure you don't login to Widows with your refrigerator password Sure, for some lazy growlers out there even these few simple steps won't be worth the hassle, since they stubbornly claim that offline way is the easier and safer one, but hey - modern approach to cybersecurity is to accept the challenges, not to avoid them! So don't be a cowardly computer redneck, don't go offline, It's so 90's...
  6. Mine will lock itself up if there's no internet available. And then there's this voice message from Fridge Assistant: "Access denied, Error code #007: Face recognition system unable to verify user authorization on remote server. Please check the connection and reboot your kitchen. When in doubt feel free to contact our AI chat bot via landline. It probably won't understand you anyway, but hey, it's the age we live in!"
  7. Lucky you! At least you don't need to sign in to your Whirlpool account just to get the door open.
  8. Does it need internet to accept cookies?
  9. Tools like JamOrigin MIDI Guitar 2 or MIDI Bass (VST plugin and standalone version) are capable of performing audio to midi guitar signal conversion in realtime. Free trial version available here: https://www.jamorigin.com
  10. Only joking. They've probably never heard of Cakewalk 😉
  11. "Security Paranoia", Chapter One: - You'd better switch to Win 10 as it is much safer than previous systems. It receives constant security updates, whereas others do not. You know, those bad, bad hackers never sleep. They can break almost any protection including NASA ones, so we need to have eyes around our heads all the time. - So breaking into my firewalled system won't be much of a challenge for them? - Eeehm...probalby not. - But that's exactly why I prefer to go totally offline with my workstation! - You're paranoid. tbc.
  12. Guys from European Union of the Deaf? But seriously, if stealing other people's ideas wasn't relatively common, there'd be no patent laws in existence. And certainly no copyright institutions like US Copyright Office and its equivalents in other countries.
  13. No, I didn't. It's pretty normal that software disappears from the market, and that's exactly why periodical activation scheme is so dangerous. Once such an app is gone users can't work on their projects anymore, even if they still have suitable OS and hardware. And that's a good reason to consider introducing permanent Cakewalk licenses (be it paid ones), at least for those, who don't like the vision of waking up with an empty bottle on the desert someday.
  14. I don't care, 'cause Im a Cakewalk user, writing about Cakewalk issues on Cakewalk forums, not Word Perfect.
  15. That's a convenient way for offline users, indeed, but it doesn't answer the question of activation requirement per se, in case BandLab is (knock on wood) dead someday. Or if they drop Cakewalk's developement for whatever reason. I mean, how can we be sure that we'll be able to work on our projects later on?
