  2. Hi guys! I have been studying the Pro Channel lately and I'm getting a bit impressed! How would you evaluate the Pro Channel components against some of the best free VST plugins? For instance compare the Pro Channel's EQ to CM Equa 97 or DDMF IIEQ Pro? Or, compare the Pro Channel compressor module to Vice One from Ignite etc? Quality wise, as well as burning CPU, RAM and other resources? It seems that I could well do without additional VST plugs when similar features are already available in the Pro Channel? What are your thoughts on this?

    Pro Channel vs. VST Plug Ins

    I thought Vice One offered a bit more features (and quality?) than the Pro Channel compressor. I would probably continue using that one mostly.

    Pro Channel vs. VST Plug Ins

    Yes, the first thing I noticed was the excellent PC EQ! Very powerful tool!
  5. Hi guys. Fading is easy on Cakewalk IF you have just a regular audio track. BUT, if you have a midi or instrument track it gets more complicated. What is your easiest, or preferred method of fading in and out on midi tracks? This is a beginner question, so please explain this as you would explain it to your grandmother

    Fading on Midi or Instrument tracks

    Thank you guys for all these good tips! Re. fading with automation tracks have you noticed if they use lots of CPU?

    Fading on Midi or Instrument tracks

    Brilliant! Automation it is! Thank you for your help, mate!

    Fading on Midi or Instrument tracks

    Mate, regular "drag" fading does not seem to work on Instruments tracks either?

    Do You Use Drum Maps?

    Hi all drummers! I have been using maps as well as dropping individual samples to separate drum tracks. I prefer the latter. Lately also been testing Loopcloud material, which seem pretty high end at times! But, my additional question is somewhat related to using drum maps. Regarding drum pads, what is the best way to program those 8 midi pads on your controller? I use Akai MPK mini2 and the software that comes with it just sucks. So, looking for advice how to program my Akai pads within Cakewalk.

    Melodyne Alternative

    Has anyone uninstalled the Melodyne demo from Cakewalk? Just wondering how to go about it as it is not really useful until you pay the $99-$499 activation fee.
  12. Hi guys! I have done a song with 6 tracks, and when I try to add more tracks to it I get them ONLY in the mixing console. I don't get them in the track window! Also, sometimes I lose visual of some of the tracks and the track window becomes un-scrollable. In this example I lost tracks 1-3 and 6. When I save the file and get back to it all is fine and my new added tracks are there where they should be in the first place. How strange is that?! Have you experienced the same, do I have some settings wrong, or what is the problem here? I have the latest Cakewalk version installed.

    Hey Bandlab...

    @Tezza Wow! Sounds a bit complicated, mate! I will give it a go on another computer, because I already have CbB on my laptop. Thanks!
  14. Thanks, Canopus! Brilliant! A nube question though: How do I install these new skins?

    Melodyne in Cakewalk by Bandlab

    It seems that Melodyne is not "in" any more, so has anyone deleted it from Cakewalk? If so, what is the best way of doing that?
  16. Hi guys! Trying to remove (exclude) some plug ins I don't need anymore with the built in Plug In Manager, but even if I have ticked them Excluded I can still see them in my Plug Ins Panel on the right. Re-scanning the plug in folders did not help. See image attached. In this case I was trying to get rid of some mono versions of Blue Cat's plugs, as well as the (now) defunct Melodyne. Any ideas? Also, how can I sort the plug ins into different, or even custom folders? There seems to be lots of them going in the Uncategorised -folder.

    How to remove plug ins?

    I have also used C Cleaner which seems to collect all uninstallers into its interface.

    Newbie Help Please

    Hi Scott, As John mentioned most likely you are looking at the helper app from BandLab. When you install Cakewalk it should look like this, and by no means "basic"

    Is an EQ plugin worth it?

    Hi Michael, I am currently testing the free SON EQ from Sonimus. Not bad at all! Comes with a good manual as well. Check it out here: https://sonimus.com/products/soneq/

    More VST instruments

    Hi guys! So, regarding all these cool VST plugins, when the installer asks me to choose what to install should I always install all versions, or just the 64 bit VST 2 version? My Cakewalk is 64 bit, and for instance the E MU Proteus 32 bit does not install properly.

    Hey Bandlab...

    Hi all, I was trying to do the update today, but all I got was a message saying that I need to shut down some running software before the installation can take place. This was quite strange as I did not have anything running, not even a browser! I quit out of the installer, but then, I could not start Cakewalk anymore! Luckily after I did a restart I was able to get CbB running again. Phew! Needles to say I am going to skip this update. I wish we could download and store the full installer .exe file locally on our HD. I don't quite trust this "it's all happening online" update method.
  22. UPDATE! Hi guys! I received advice that this problem might be caused by Lenses. When I set Lenses to NONE all my tracks came back! So, it seems that this might be a visual problem in CbB, a glitch perhaps?
  23. Actually, I was being too optimistic! The problem still exists. So, when I add tracks I get them in the mixer board at the bottom but not in the track window. Also some tracks disappear from view when adding more tracks. All comes back after I save and reopen the file. Checking or unchecking "Keep track/console visibility states in sync check" -box does not seem to have any effect after all. "Show All Tracks and Buses" does not fix this either. I have 8GB RAM which should be enough, so it can't be a memory issue. This is odd...

    Duplicating an audio track.

    The easiest way of doing this is just right click the empty space below the number of the track you want to duplicate, and choose Duplicate Track from the menu, and tick the boxes in the next screen. Please note that right below is the Delete command, so you don't want to be hitting that by accident.
  25. That's it! Problem solved. I knew it was me and not Cakewalk Thank, mate!
