    This guy is outrageous! This Saturday after my Jam session with my buddy, we are going to check this guy out - Too Funny! Thanks for the laugh . . . LOL Syphus
  4. @msmcleod if you mean "folders within folders", that is not what I am referring to - I think one should be able to select a track within a folder, then insert a track template. If you are saying the supporting "sub-folders" would allow this - then cool. Otherwise, I think that being able to "insert" a track template would be very useful. I know there are ways to do it - I'm thinking that having this function would be nice (unless it is big rewrite of code). Currently you insert the track template, then move to the folder (two steps vs one). [EDIT] - I re-read your post and I now understand what you are saying (I have tunnel vision sometimes) - inserting a track template with (or using folders) would not work in the current build. But I hope I clarified what I was looking for . . . Hope to see it in the future . . . Thanks, Syphus
  5. That works for creating the folder with the set up you create (to start with), but it is not what I am looking for. But since you mentioned it, perhaps I can do that and load several tracks for working to start an idea. I usually have several going (tracks) before I get to the "one" I think I will try that . . . Unfortunately, this is not solution that I am seeking. Thanks, Syphus
  6. Thanks, but found that also . . . Not exactly what I was looking for . . . Perhaps what I want to do is not possible. I think it should be Syphus
  7. Hello all I was trying to find if it was possible it insert a track template directly into a folder. Currently I only know adding a track template and then adding it to a folder as two separate actions. I know that you can "insert a track" into a folder (audio or midi) by selecting a track within a folder and "Right clicking" to do the insert (or add). I looked around and did not see any documentation for this type of action (using a "insert track template"). I did discover that if you wanted the same type of track (such as Guitar using a instrument such as Amplitube), you can select a track within the folder and do a "Duplicate Track" and that will insert into the folder. So how do I insert a track template directly into a folder? Perhaps I missed something . . . Syphus

  9. At some point Cakewalk MAY not be compatible with Windows 7. At this point, the developers do not do any testing on Win 7 so there could be issues now or in the future that could be related to running Cakewalk on the older version of windows. That being said, the installer will install the latest version on Win 7, but you do so at your own risk. I have not update my OS to Win 10 as of yet and I have not found any major problems with running Cakewalk with Win 7. A minor glitch here and there but nothing that has not been documented in the forums. If you do run into problems there with all ways be the disclaimer stated about Win 7 not being supported . . . Just say'n . . . So far I still running Win 7 with Cake . . . And as always, there is usually an installer available to revert to the last (previous) version. Keep in mind if your version is older (like a year for example) there may not be one (last version installer) available. So since you have installed the latest (I believe that is what you indicated), if the next version does not work for you, you could come back to whatever you just installed. Hope that helps with your question. Syphus
  10. If you already read the thread - you might want to revisit it again - I added info related to using the 3.0 USB ports for your Focusrite . . . Syphus
  11. I don't know if this is totally related (but I think it is) . . . I am running a Win 7 laptop. For a long while I was plugging my focusrite Scarlett 2i4 (second gen) into the 3.0 ports of the USB. Every once in a while I would get a BSOD out of the blue that would in some cases, take hours to recover from (really scary). The last time it happened in this configuration, I did a crash analysis and what I found was that the driver for the USB 3.0 was crashing. I looked for a newer version of the driver and there was none (I had a computer repair guy look at it and he could not find one). So I disabled the 3.0 drivers and only plug into the 2.0 USB ports. I have not had a BSOD in two years since that change . . . Just my story. Syphus
  12. Look at this - with the configuration file for Cakewalk this is how the layout is: https://store.birchwoodstudioandevents.com/Sonar-Overlay (click on the graphic for enlarged view) You can also find other info on the web. I think that answers you question (hopefully) . If you don't have the "Sonar" overlay, the "Buss" selection is in the "Utility" section (top left button- Utility>Save) and the track switch is next to it on the left (Automation>trim). I think that getting the overlay is the best solution so you don't have to memorize all the substitutions for Cakewalk. Hope that answers your question. Just realized you were talking about the X-touch One . . . In that case never mind - my mistake - info is for the X-Touch . . . Sorry. The One does not have a "Buss" button that I know of. One of the reasons I did not start with that model. Syphus
  13. Really weird! I tried looking on their site to see if it was mentioned as a normal news item (as in the blog) and not a peep about it. I looks as if there was underground element happening there. I almost appears that someone has lost their senses. Syphus
  14. I'm not familiar with this export process, but I did find this . . . Might mean something. http://forum.cakewalk.com/tm.aspx?m=1190244 I could not find anything meaningful about OMF . . . How big is your project - OMFI appears to have a size limitation . . . Won't hurt to check out the link., but note it is old (2007). Syphus

    As I had said, I don't remember the exact process I used to get mine set. But go back and read the threads that discuss this (see my response above) and they might have your answer. I would have to do the research if I was to create another "template" for myself, I'd do a bit more research on this now , but I'm busy with a project that I need to finish. Syphus

    I don't know the direct answer, but do a search for "Start Screen" (with the quotes) and a bunch of stuff shows up that you will have to sort through. But to get you started: I know I had the same question once and did solve my problem, but I don't recall what the answer was . . . Syphus
  17. With Noel's help we were able to track this down and provide a solution to get it fixed . . . the notes are: Precursor: I had a internet error a few weeks back and I believe that is what may have cause this to occur since I never had this problem before this. I don't know how I fixed my connection at that time. Also I am running Win 7 (Still!), although I don't think that was the problem since this has been working all along. Problem: When clicking on "Check for Updates" I received this message: The reason was because I was missing TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 as default secure protocols in WinHTTP. Per Noel, I could not run a "Secure Https" connection out of Cakewalk. Solution( in this case): Went to this page: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/update-to-enable-tls-1-1-and-tls-1-2-as-default-secure-protocols-in-winhttp-in-windows-c4bd73d2-31d7-761e-0178-11268bb10392#bkmk_easy and applied the "Easy Fix" This made my Cakewalk able to connect and check for updates: So Setting to Solved and big thanks to Noel for helping me out. Bakers are the best! Syphus
  18. The above is the error message. I took a project and uploaded it to my bandlab library from in Cakewalk without a problem and was able to browse the project. Also logged out and then logged back in from within Cakewalk to Bandlab (got the refreshed message). Thanks, Syphus
  19. No, not it . . . just shut it off - the message Thanks
  20. I'm not sure what you mean by the above? I normally stay logged in to BA, but I don't have it running. Also as part of this (process), I updated BA to the latest version and re-logged in. The "refresh" detection seems to be functioning. If it was a case of Cakewalk trying to login again, would it not let me know if that was a problem. I seem to recall at one point Cakewalk did tell me to login to BA for refresh checks . . . (I guess I do know what you mean). I don't know how this process works and if that was the case (clashing login) I would think someone would have already said something about having a problem. I just checked the "Help" drop down and CW does show me logged in to bandlab Thanks, Syphus
  21. @Noel Borthwick Sorry for the late reply . . . Everything seems good on my end. I'm not having any internet connectivity problems that I can detect. Just checked and the error is still occurring. I don't know if refreshing uses the the connection (I imagine it does), but that is functioning. Is there anything I can do to check the Cakewalk connectivity? I'm running 2021.04 build 175. Thanks, Syphus
  22. Did a search - could not find anything. I noticed that I did not get a message telling me that there was a "Early Access" available. So I ran the "Check for Update" in the Help drop down and I got a dialog box telling me that there was a "Connection Error" Check back later". I am using the latest version of cakewalk. Tried rebooting and that did not help. Just update the Bandlab Assistant and tried it again - no luck. Internet seems fine . . . Anyone else seeing this or is it just me? Thanks, Syphus
  23. @Creative Sauce: great video! As you said - a forever user and did not know about some of your tips . . . When I get back to my other computer, I will click on the "like" button. You have done excellent videos about Cakewalk . . . More Tips Please! Thanks, Syphus
  24. I looked and could swear I saw no other thread for Cakewalk 2021.04 Update 1 (build Not even a new release notification. I did think it a bit strange that there was no other notification . . . I will look a bit closer next time. Syphus
