  1. Thanks Tim, good to hear from you also. Nah, there's enough hate and trolling in the world. It's easier to shut down my browser and do something else. People that know me, know how to get a hold of me if they need me. I'll still be around from time to time. I'm just WAY more selective with who I reach out to and help these days. 👍 With the typing thing, what I meant was, I used to type so much all the time, I barely had to hand write anything. So my writing is now horrendous like a doctor. I also don't take part in forum stuff so now my typing skills are horrible. I was so fast man, now I typo like crazy. I don't have any physical issues or limitations. Sorry if it came.off that way.
  2. It's OK, helping is often times overrated and takes a special soul with thick skin that enjoys a diet of crap. After 30 years, it was time for a diet change. 🤣
  3. These days less said is more unless there are blatant issues. I don't hear anything that bothers me. Another thing I tend to do now is I listen for what YOU presented, not what I feel it should be in MY image, understand? Commenting on stuff like this is so subjective, who cares how *I* would do it? It's about YOU and how YOU did it, ya know? Trust me, if I hear something for you to fix, I'll always mention what it is and how to fix it. The only thing that sort of offset me a bit is the lone guitar to the left in the beginning to the middle until more instruments join in. It sort of made the mix sound a bit lopsided to me because there was nothing in the right like the dominant acoustic to the left. It did eventually even out, but I don't know if I like it like that. It just seems like the right side is missing something for a bit. But it's still good because you built up the mix gradually. I'm weird with stuff like that. Like some of the old Beatles mixes annoyed me with their panning. The thing with them though, they always had a ton of stuff filling everything up. But other than that, this was really good man. One other thing that I just heard. Some of the vocal harmonies seemed to land on the same notes....like you guys may have been unsure of what they may have been. It can be quite challenging not to land on each other, trust me, I know! 😃
  4. Thank you kind Sir. I've missed you too. Nah, Sonar is still my weapon of choice. I just don't hang out in forums much these days. The "Danzi help store" got a bit too much for me to handle. Too many people trying to rule the roost with idiotic posts attempting to make recording look like a dark art. After a while you get tired of debunking the myths and fighting with people. All the links and technical mumbo jumbo just irked me. Then the bashers would start in and it got my blood boiling to where it just wasn't worth me being involved. I'm one of those guys that treats this like I would if you were standing here face to face. I wouldn't type something here that I wouldn't say to a man's face like others that stir things up. I just get too passionate and emotionally involved with forums because I take this stuff so seriously and truly did want to help others. I can't help who and what I am, ya know? So it's been all forums, not just this one. Yeah, unfortunately, I got tired of turning down business when someone would call and say "you got pro tools, you got Cubase, you got Studio One, you use Reaper?" If no one asks for anything specific, it's always Sonar. Thank you, I'm doing very well and hope you and everyone else are well also. Glad you enjoyed my posts, that makes me feel great. I really enjoyed making them, truth be told. I actually have stayed away from posting for so long, I'm not as good at typing as I used to be. So now I not only can't write because I used to type everything, I can't type either. Thank God I can still create music! Sorry to hear about Beepster. Good dude. I hope he's ok also. Glad a few of you remembered me. It meant a lot to see this! Thank you all so much! -Danny
  5. Thanks guys, I appreciate the responses.
  6. Anyone using the mac version? Decided to test it out but can't get it to see more than 8 inputs from my Midas console. Does anyone know why this may be happening? I've tried all the driver choices and none of them even work for playback other than MME. I would think ASIO would work, but we don't see anything showing up in the driver input/output options. Any ideas? We are using mac os software that is compatible with the release. Totally stumped?!
  7. I have, but I'd be lying to you if I told you I knew what to touch on that. LOL! Here's an update of another symptom. Ok, I mentioned once the project drops the midi cymbals that I have to reopen to make it stop. That is not the case. So here's the scenario.. I'm working in a project and stop and start a few times somewhere in the middle. The cymbals drop out. However, if I just take the time line and move it to the end of the project (like say the last 4 measures) and press play while allowing the project to finish and stop, upon rewinding, all the cymbals are back. Weird! RBH: drum note durations are exactly a 16th note long other than some of my really fast ghost note trips on my kick and snare. All the other notes are the same even on cymbals. -Danny
  8. Thank you all for the replies and suggestions. Two things I have figured out so far. 1. The choked note IS a midi note of one of the cymbals. I've not tried deleting it to see if the problem goes away, but will try that just to see. 2. It only happens if I stop the project in between and work on different sections. As long as I press play and let it go from start to finish, the issue never happens. As soon as I set up a loop to work on back up vocals or something, the cymbals will stay choked eventually and even if I remove the loop mode, rewind and start from the top, the notes are muted. It's only one of the crash cymbals and the ride. What the ride has to do with it, I have no idea...other than it's a 3 way ride with bell, edge and bow. Whatever is happening, it seems to disrupt it when you stop in the middle of the song and work on isolated areas. I've messed with all the CC numbers as well as looked in event viewer to see if anything is weird. I remember Willy Jones from Cakewalk once helped me with a client project that had weirdness in it where he made adjustments in the midi filtering options? It's been so long ago, I don't even know how or where to do that. Does that ring any bells? In the meantime, I'll look into the other things you guys have mentioned. If anything I've posted above gives you guys any more ideas, I'm all ears. Thanks so much for taking the time to reply. -Danny
  9. Hi everyone, Was curious if anyone else has ever experienced this? I play a drum track using V-Drums. It doesn't matter what drum module I use. BFD, EZD2, Superior, AD etc. Anytime there is a choked cymbal in my project, after about 3 rewinds working inside the project, the cymbal that was choked will remain choked on every hit from the start of the project, and the ride cymbal will be sort of choked off as well. The weird thing is, all I have to do is close the project and reopen and it will work fine for another 3 plays or so. (it happens in all versions of Cake/Sonar Plat etc) I'm thinking it's some sort of midi event somewhere, but for the life of me, I can't seem to figure this one out. I've tried higher and lower midi playback buffers, as well as "Zero controllers when play stops" off and on. I don't know what to do as this is driving me insane with the project I'm currently working on. Any suggestions as to how I may go about fixing this? Thanks in advance.
  10. Thanks scook and everyone else. Much appreciated.
  11. Hello, Any Dim Pro users out there that can tell me how make a sound stop fading in? Example, I'm using the sound called Memories in Dim Pro and would like for it to hit a little more instant. Every synth I've ever used has an attack knob to solve this issue. I don't see one for this. I've tried everything and I guess I just haven't touched the right setting yet. Can anyone help me stop the fade effect on that sound please? Thanks in advance. -Danny
