  1. There are 2 potential options to get VX working in Cakewalk. Load Minihost Modular 32 bit version into Cakewalk. Then load Proteus VX into Minihost. If you can't get Minihost to load with Bitbridge use JBridger and it should load OK. Second option is load Proteus VX using JBridger. I've done both in Windows 10 and both seem to work. Minihost can be useful for loading other 32 bit vst's and perha[ps chaining together.
  2. Thanks to all - I have just found a way to get this to load in Cakewalk. I was able to open it in Minihost Modular 32 bit previously but couldn't get Cakewalk to recognise Minihost other than the 64 bit plugin. Solution as follows I downloaded JBridger. Created JBridger files for both Minihost Modular and Proteus VX. 1. Opened the Minihost Modular (J Bridger) vst in Cakewalk as a soft synth track - then opened Proteus VX dll in Minihost Modular - result - Proteus displays OK and I've loaded up a couple of patches which seem to work. PS - Lenovo P52 laptop - Win10 - Tascam usb interface - MAudio oxygen Pro controller. 2. Created a jBridger dll file for Proteus VX. It loads as a soft synth in Cakewalk and loaded up a couple of patches. There is sound but needed to tweak settings to get fully working. Now seems OK. But the end result is - you can get Proteus VX to work in Cakewalk 64 bit version and it is still usable. Hope this all makes sense
  3. Thanks to all - (Jim Fogle) I have recorded through Audacity using other standalones so I suppose I can do a wav export import to Cakewalk. As regards midi I may explore using one of the vst host freebies with built in midi record function and seeing whether I can create the odd phrase/loop and record the audio result in Audacity to then import into Cakewalk. I could use the audio editing features in Cakewalk to adjust timing if needed. Not an expert in software recording yet but always looking for ways around a problem.
  4. Hi _ i have been trying to use the Proteus VX synth 32 bit plugin but the vst does not work in Cakewalk. A box that should hold the synth opens and Cakewalk recognises it as an instrument but no visualisation appears. If this has been solved it would be good to hear what I need to do. I tried to find it as a Rewire Device but no luck. Is it possible to use the Standalone version of Proteus VX vst and record the output in Cakewalk as an audio input only?
  5. Hi I'm just considering an upgrade on the cheap, however, my current setup is a Lenovo Thinkpad T520 Laptop Core i5 with VPro, 4 Gb Ram and 250 Gb SSD. (Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. In addition I put the majority of VSTs on a large Western Digital My Book external hard drive. Now whether its the VPro platform I don't know but the laptop has proved reliable, bought as a refurb ex-business unit some years back and I've been looking at similar Core i7 Thinkpads T or P range with more memory and poss bigger HD. The i5 is quick and i have the same battery I started with probably 6-7 years back. Had to replace the HD when the SSD was put in. I use Tascam US 122 and US 100 USB Audio interfaces - basic but OK for my needs. I don't know whether this will give some food for thought - Phil
  6. mc_protocol_mappings [MIDIbox].pdf Hi all I found this file which may help find the right settings although how you do this in the MAudio editor is currently beyond me. I also found this thread 'MIDI: Transport control not working from master keyboard AND external controller' under Cakewalk Discuss which helps with setting Cakewalk to receive Mackie messages from controller. Still struggling but hoping this helps crack the setup
