  1. I just installed Cakewalk a few days ago on a Windows 10 HP laptop. I'm having trouble with the virtual keyboard controller. It works like a charm when I open a new project and add a new instrument track. (I've been using Surge as my synth.) The keys work, the sound works, the recording works. I can record several tracks and am able to use both the piano keyboard and the computer keyboard. Then I go and edit a track a bit, add an effect or two and go back to the keyboard and the synth to record again. Sound no longer works -- not just when recording, but at all. I can't trigger the synth to play. The same happens when I try to add another instrument track. Synth comes up, virtual keyboard comes up, the screen shows my keys depressing, but no sound. I've checked that the virtual keyboard is the input (Omni). Recording on the current track is armed. Mute is off. I've tried different presets, different synths. Nothing works. Once I exit the program and open with an empty project, everything works again. I'm sure there's some setting I am missing but I've had no luck figuring it out. Thanks for any help!
  2. Hey guys and girls! I've started to really love the cakewalk since I've made it work optimally. However, I stumbled upon a new problem. Every time I listen to a mix and want to change something in let's say compressor or another effect, I can do nothing. the mix just plays and I have to wait until it's done. Do you have any ideas on how to fix it? It is wildly annoying. My computer: 8 Gb ram Intel Core i5-7400 3.00GHz 64-bit Windows 10 video-1575819234.mp4

  4. This is kind of a polarizing piece of content, but I have met with some good responses! I realize that these views are subjective, but I feel I at least made some valid points.
  5. I'm still getting to know this DAW, and I need to be able to figure out why I'm not getting sound. The set up I have now was working before — at least I think it was the same set up. I changed the driver mode from ASIO to WASAPI shared, and that worked before. What do I need to check to figure out where the issue is? It looks like it's set up right to me. When I play, the meters don't respond at all. Any suggestions gratefully appreciated.
  6. Hey guys I have this very annoying problem where whenever I toggle the input echo button when I have my USB mic connected it gives me a consistent ringing that is super loud and won't turn off unless I turned off the echo. I thought it was my mic originally but then I returned it and got a new one but it is giving me the same problem.
  7. Upon booting Cakewalk, everything else goes silent, YouTube, any calls I might be on, any other form of audio playback stops working apart from cakewalk. As well as this, whenever I play anything in cakewalk there's a chance I get a sort of audio buffery noise, like its only playing the first tiny bit of the track over and over so it becomes this distorted drone, any suggestions on help?
  8. If you experience unexplained error notifications from your display adapter software shortly after startup, try powering up your audio interface before you power up your PC. For me if I don't power up my Focusrite 18i8 USB audio interface before restart or power up of my PC, I receive the notification shown in the attached screenshot. To avoid surges and hardware damage, I've always powered up my audio hardware starting with the audio output source and working through to the speakers (PC > Audio Interface > Monitor Controller > Monitors). But, now I power up the Audio Interface before the PC to avoid the Radeon notification shown in the attachment. My display adapter is a AMD RX 580. I had the same problem with my earlier AMD R7 250. I'm posting this thinking that I'm not the only person with this problem and that I've picked a title and tags that will allow others with the same problem to find it.
  9. Hi All, afraid I need some technical help. I (unfortunately) just bought a dell laptop (Lattitude 5480) for use with cakewalk. On paper, this thing is a beast : i7-7820HQ processor, 16 Gb Ram, Pcie(4x) SSD. It's a great laptop, very fast and capable, but turns out it's completely unusable with any audio program due to DPC latency LatencyMon shows the culprit as ACPI.sys - I'm getting latency readings of over 2500uS, which results in lots of audible clicks and pops with reasonable ASIO buffers (256) I've done all the usual: disabled c states, turned off speed-step and turbo-boost in Bios; Set all power plan settings to max performance; Disabled network, on board audio, camera, microphone array etc in device manager - but nothing works. The only thing I can think of now is to try and set processor affinity so cakewalk only runs on cores 2,3 & 4 - the DPC spikes seem only to occur on core 1. Is this possible, and does anyone have any experience or knowledge of doing this? I did attempt creating a shortcut that set the processor affinity using this article :https://www.eightforums.com/threads/cpu-affinity-shortcut-for-a-program-create-in-windows.40339/ but without much success. Is it possible to restrict Cakewalk to only use certain cores, and is it a viable technique to get around DPC Latency issues? Any advice gratefully received, as this is starting to look like an expensive mistake...
  10. OS: Windows 10(latest) Browser: Brave(latest) I just found out about Cakewalk DAW today and was trying to install the software from the website(https://www.bandlab.com/products/cakewalk). I was able to download the "bandlab-assistant-latest.exe", but when I tried to proceed the assistant program won't let me log-in to BandLab. I used my Google account to register for BandLab, but when I try to login, the assistant program loads back to the log-in page and says "Please re-try logging in." Was I not supposed to register BandLab with my Google account? How can I download the Cakewalk software??
  11. So I've recently decided (the music bug is biting me) to start making music again, but due to circumstance need to use headphones. (Can't have bass drums knocking out of my monitors at 3am) Problem: distorted sounds in headphone playback in Sonar... Details: plugging headphone into PC headphone jack it pops up a box and says device disconnected etc... anyway i can select HD Audio Device on the output and the sound plays through headphones... If i open a new project, and select the HD Audio Device RT and play sounds they come out really distorted (audio not clipping) but sounds horribly distorted. If I open an existing project and select the HD Audio Device, the sound is completely fine... I've checked the settings in preferences (from new project and existing project) of the devices and playback and they're identical. I really can't figure out why the sound is distorting in a fresh project but not existing projects when using the headphone jack output selected as HE Audio Device RT. Please help. Note: in all situations crackling n buzzing of the computer can be heard in the headphones... But sound from YouTube, and everywhere else plays back fine.
  12. To sequence with NI Bettery 4, I modified rows of Step Sequencer on Cakewalk 2019.05 ver. At the first clip on NI Battery 4 track, there was no issue. However, when I try to create a seccond clip (another pattern) on the same track, I have to modify rows, again. The Step Sequencer settings return to the default. This is very uncomfortable. Is it possible to keep Step Sequencer's settings on the same track?
  13. Hi, I recently installed the cakewalk software using the Bandlab assistant. While installing I chose the Studio instrument suite add on. When I load cakewalk, I see that the studio instruments plugins are getting categorized as FX making it impossible for me to use as instruments. Any idea what I can do to correct this? Here is how it looks like:
  14. Hello, I have just installed CW curious about music production a hobby. There is no output, all the gauges and so on are showing levels but there's no sound. Other programs and sources and so on play as usual. I haven't changed anything physically. I've played around with all the audio output preferences but nothing seems to get CW playing back. Obviously I've missed something super basic but if anyone could help me get CW to play on an output that would be much appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
