About Me

  1. I was curious if it were possible to use a multi effect pedal, such as FCB1010, hook it up to Cakewalk and use the pedals to control plugins. For example, lets say I have a Diezel VH4 plugin on Cakewalk, is it possible to control/toggle it from my multi effect pedal?

  3. https://noiseengineering.us/products/xer-mixa-expando-expandi?color=black Noise Engineering has returned with a new digitally controlled analog mixer with 10 stereo-paired inputs, 3 stereo-paired output busses, and MIDI control in 32HP. Xer Mixa is a hybrid analog/digital design: it features a fully analog signal path, with low noise and crosstalk, pristine sound quality, and ultra-high headroom. Noise Engineering has leaned into their skills with digital, too, adding a microprocessor for the interface, and harnessing the power of hybrid design. Xer Mixa’s digital side allows for state save and recall, per-channel pan law and pre/post send settings, multichannel editing, and MIDI I/O. The mixer features 10 stereo-paired input channels: 8 interactive fader-controlled channels and two aux channels, each with clickless mutes. Per-channel options include pan-law settings, pre- or post-fader send routing, and more. Settings can be saved for easy recall during future sessions or live sets. For users who want CV control, Noise Engineering is also offering a 4HP, 8-input expander called Expando Expandi. Up to 2 expanders can be connected to the mixer via the rear panel and the inputs routed to a maximum of 32 modulation destinations on the mixer. Available to pre-order in black and silver, Xer Mixa and Expando Expandi are priced $999 USD and $169 USD, respectively, and a discounted bundle of Xer Mixa and Expando Expandi is also available at 10% off. The modules will ship September 6th, 2023. Noise Engineering will be on hand in Los Angeles at a release party at the synth library LADSR from 12-3 Pacific on September 2nd and at Knobcon 2023 (September 9th-10th) for anyone interested in trying the new modules out.

  5. Hey there, for a purely hobby project, I'm trying to get the Sennheiser GSX 1200 Pro to work with Cakewalk, for playback and recording. Unfortunately, I can't get it to work, being a Cakewalk newbie. Can anyone tell me which settings I have to do in which menus? Thanks, Ingmar
  6. Here's a template I created for use with the MPK2 series controllers that allow visual pad feedback with bank switching. It also makes room for mute pad functionality and feedback by creating a custom device preset which is explained in the included text file. mpk2_cakewalk.zip
  7. Greetings whoever may see this , I'm new to this app and also the recording process as I've just started this year. I just have a slight issue , i use a Scarlett focusrite interface a laptop and an Aston microphone my setup is great but I cant seem to get my vocals right they only come out of one ear even after the recording and export process is finished..... any advice?
  8. Hello. I've installed a second monitor and i would like to know how to split Cakewalk in two windows. One with controls and the other with the mixing and tracks (If it's possible). Thanks!
  9. Just purchased a used Alesis D4 for the purpose of using triggers with my drums along with Cakewalk. for the life of me I haven't been able to get Cakewalk to recognize it. Any suggestions? Have read thoroughly through the manual. no luck. May end up sending it back to Guitar Center but I need to know I'm not just missing some obvious setting. Maybe i just need to buy a newer drum module that will work with Cakewalk? Behringer U-PHORIA UMC1820 is my interface. Windows 10. Recognizes MIDI keyboards just fine, but not this drum module. Thanks!
  10. I recently purchased a SoundGrid Extreme Server and was having problems integrating it into Cakewalk, so I got on the phone with Waves Support and was informed that Waves plugins will only work as native plugins and won't be offloaded to the Extreme server. When I asked why, the answer they gave me somewhat vague. First, I was told it was a technical issue but when I asked for clarification I got an answer it was a "political" issue between Waves and Cakewalk and I should be using another DAW such a Reaper or Studio One 5. I've been using Cakewalk since its initial release and am comfortable with the workflow. I don't want to go through the learning curve and expense of changing DAWs. Does anyone have any insight as to this issue of should I take it up with the Cakewalk devs? Thanks, Jon
  11. Hello: I have Cakewalk by Bandlab. I want to be able to run it on a PC, and then attach performance speakers to the PC for public audiences. Does anyone have recommendations for a powerful laptop and speaker system?
  12. I am trying to record external hardware, mainly drum machines and synths. Is there a way to arm a track and have it automatically start recording when it detects an input and then stop when it doesn't detect anything?
  13. Hi all! How do you guys find Cakewalk at 4k resolution? Is it blurry or good? I would love to hear your thoughts. Please if you would disclose your screen size and scaling factor in Windows as well as sitting distance from screen. I am going to replace a dual-screen setup that consists of two old Dell 19" 1280x1024 (yes, 4:3!) monitors with a new hi-res monitor. Due to speaker placement and ergonomics, I need a single screen in front of me. The width of a 32" monitor seems to be perfect for me – most are about 71 cm (~28") in width – and most people seem to say that 4k resolution needs a 32" monitor. I am sitting about 90 cm (~35") away from my screen(s). Reading about it, scaling in Windows 10 seems to be problematic... so is 4k at 32" worth it, or should I aim at 2560×1440 at 27" instead?
  14. How did you organize your archive? How do you store files? What hardware do you use? What software do you use? How do you catalog the files in your archive? What software do you use? I want my archive to be reliable. I want to find files in archive quickly. I want to use automated archiving and cataloging tools, schedule. I want to make few copies of archive automatically. I want to store copies of archive in different locations. I run Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
  15. I want to make mastering of piano music. These will be piano pieces. Each will last from two to three minutes. I will combine these pieces into the album. The album will have from eight to ten pieces. The finished recording will have only a piano - one instrument. After mastering I will upload the finished recordings to different music sites - this will be the only way to distribute these recordings. There will no be physical media - CD, DVD - in distribution. Next I will make new piano pieces. I will make budget from tasks solving. First - what I need to solve the task? Next - how much money I need for it. I want to build a computer for Cakewalk. I will use Windows 10 Home 64-bit. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- I discussed "How much SSDs to use on computer for Cakewalk?" here: https://discuss.cakewalk.com/index.php?/topic/19334-how-much-ssds-to-use-on-computer-for-cakewalk/ Thanks to everyone who gave their opinions. I took into consideration. My main conclusion: I will use two SSD. First SSD. Disk C on it. On disk C - Windows 10 Home 64-bit, applications including Cakewalk. Second SDD. Disk D on it. On disk D - current project work files. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Next I discussed "Overclocked RAM or not for Cakewalk?" here https://discuss.cakewalk.com/index.php?/topic/19444-overclocked-ram-or-not-for-cakewalk/ Thanks to everyone who gave their opinions. I took into attention. My main conclusion: I will not use overclocked RAM. I will use traditional RAM: for example Crucial CT 3200 MHz, Kingston KVR 3200 MHz. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- At that topic abacab have wrote: At that topic I have wrote that I want to make mastering of piano music. Next I asked: abacab asked me clarifying question: I can describe how I want to do. I will do it in this topic. I agree with abacab: -------------------------------------------------------------------------- So, I want to make experiment: what way will be suitable for my musical art tasks? Some piano pieces will be in Rondo musical form. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rondo Some in Binary musical form. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_form Some in Ternary form. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ternary_form Some pieces will be Fantasia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fantasia_(music) Some will be Scherzo. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scherzo Some pieces will be Waltz. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waltz_(music) Some will be Polka. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polka Some will be Romance. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romance_(music) Every pieces will last from two to three minutes. What is the best technical way for me to express my musical ideas? I want to fit technical requirements of musical sites on which I will distribute my music. For experiment I will use all variants you listed. I will use scheme: first variant - few compositions, second variant - another few compositions, third variant - another few compositions. Next I will analyze result and will make conclusion which way is suitable for me. Do I understand right way: Virtual Instrument piano in the box - it is VSTi? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_Studio_Technology
  16. After years of hobbying with rack gear, I'm experiencing a first-time dilemma. While removing a pair of 1/4" inputs from my audio interface, I actually had the tip break off of the left input. The situation is not a showstopper for me, because this truly is an optional pair of channels in my setup. But after two days of ignoring this, it still does eat at my soul, thinking that I've made my interface less functional than it could/should be. My hope in writing this, is that someone in the community has already developed a clever hack for this very problem. I do have a few extraction implements that tempt me, from needle-nose pliers to pseudo forceps, and tweezers. My concern with misusing any of these tools is the potential of introducing a short, where one does not currently exist. The interface is long out of warranty, so I'm also free to pop the hood to get a closer look. Ideas? Anyone? Anyone?
  17. I stared using Sonar Home Studio 7 on the first decade of this century using Windows XP. The time came to move into Windows 7 and I was able to move Sonar 7 into a different computer. While using Windows 7 I purchased Sonar Basic and Sonar Producer. Later on I ended up with Sonar Platinum. I was advised not to delete Sonar 7, Sonar Basic or Producer because Platinum was going to gather most if not all previously installed plugins into itself. In case I was going to need any of those older plugins, Platinum was going to have them on board. And so it happened and things were up and running as expected. The time came to get more hard drive space which led into getting another computer with Windows 10. The Windows 7 computer didn't have enough hard drive space for such, nor suitable hardware to handle the upgrade. A new computer was required and now I'm in high need of re-installing programs into the new computer. Now with the transition of Cakewalk into Bandlab I happen to be here looking for help, Does the Cakewalk Command Center still work ? If it does; Will it be functional to help out throughout a transferring program processing? Will I be able to re-install all previous Sonar versions I've had from the past after transferring program files into this new computer including all plugins? If anyone out there may have some suggestions, I'd appreciate it Thank you, GS

    Korg Volca Sample

    Hi there, I have a Volca Sample which only has MIDI in. Will I be able to record into Cakewalk whatever I play on the Volca using an USB Audio interface? Specifically M-Audio Uno which has both MIDI in and MIDI out. Thank you, spacekid.90
  19. Hi, my budget for a laptop is very limited(500€/550$), but I wanna be mobile. The official website says, Cakewalk requires a multi core cpu with a clock speed of at least 2.6 GHz. Affordable Laptops for me dont really reach that. The i5 7200U Prozessor clocks at 2.5 GHz, which is barely out of range. Is there anyone who has experiences with running Cakewalk on a Budget Laptop?
  20. Recently, I updated Cakewalk up to the latest version. However, upon opening my project that I have been working on, it made a lot..I MEAN A LOT..of popping sounds, coming from my speakers. Normally, I set the buffer size at fast and it still works very fine - this project is very simple - but with the latest version installed, I am annoyed that I need to set my buffer size near to safe, all the way to safe and not being able to record the vocal tracks, because of delays. So, I am curious if there is a way to downgrade it. By the way, I am using a ASUS Laptop, an Intel(R)Core(TM) i5-7200U CPU @ 2.50 GHz 2.71 GHz and a horrible RAM of 4GB.
  21. As I am seemingly finding the number of sample libraries growing my storage space is shrinking. I see that SSD prices are coming down and probably will continue to do so; my question is are Hybrid Hard-drive/SSDs viable as well as the cost per gigabyte seems to be pretty reasonable. Just wondering what others might have experienced using this type of drive? Thanks so much!
  22. I am getting a new PC Win 10 i7 and will no longer be able to use my Echo Mia audio interface. Can you recommend alternatives under $500? Thanks.
  23. 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.
  24. Im having some trouble configuring my Maschine MK2 into Cakewalk to do the midi stuff I want it to do. I literally have no idea what to do.
