  1. Hi I use bandlab sonar and play a control keyboard with vst kontakt. I want to divide the midi section into 3 parts. and play each section on a different instrument. For example I setup konkak piano on channel 1, Guitar on channel 2, Saxophone on channel 3. I want to make sonar change channels automatically, so that I can play each section with a different instrument, and I won't have to remember to switch between channels while playing (if there are several songs, I won't be able to remember when to switch channels in each song) Thanks
  2. When ever I record in cakewalk and then play the track the sound is inaudible most of the time occasionally play a crackly muffled sound. I have my guitar going into my audio interface into my laptop, I know the problem is not with my audio interface (Focusrite 2i2) because if I use another program such as audacity, the sound is clear and plays back as expected, the wave also looks normal on the track, its only when playing it back or using imput echo, there is also no clipping happening either.
  3. So, i've browsed around for a fix and nothing has done the job. My metronome will simply not work. I set the outputs to my speakers, checked everything I needed to and yet I can't hear it. If ANYONE can please help me out you'd be a life saver. (i am still a noob to this software)
  4. Hi all! I discovered Cakewalk this summer and what an amazing tool it is! I had to take a break due to life but I am back to experimenting. One thing I loved that I figured out over the summer was being able to create a melody in the piano roll, usually with Vital, and then enable the arpeggiator in the midi side panel (not the "insert effect" one) and then use "bounce to clip(s)" to essentially edit the individual notes in the piano roll to reflect what I heard with the arpeggiator enabled, automatically disabling the arpeggiator after but keeping its effect embedded in the actual notes themselves. Yesterday I was fooling around with a melody and created something I love, however, when I bounce it to clips, what's produced is considerably different than what I hear with the arpeggiator enabled. It's similar but not nearly as good and changes the flow and rhythm far too much. I searched like crazy since then but have not been able to find anything regarding this specific issue. Can someone help me understand what I'm not grasping? Or another method to achieve the same result? Thank you for reading and for any wisdom you can dispense!
  5. I'm trying to make a MIDI track output either to the master or my Scarlet 4i4 headphone output, but I can't. I'm using ASIO as it's the only one that works for me with low enough latency on Cakewalk. The only outputs are "Digital Piano", which just outputs to the keyboard I'm using, "Microsoft GS Wavetable synth", which only outputs to my Realtek speakers (which would be fine, but those only work on non-ASIO, which makes the latency too high to record audio along to a MIDI track), and "Focusrite USB MIDI" which doesn't seem to output anywhere I can find. No problems at all on audio tracks, they output to the master which outputs into my Scarlet headphone output. I'm a total idiot with this stuff so any help is appreciated!
  6. hello, I was using cakewalk for the first time and I clicked on fit midi content by accident and I have no idea to turn it off. Is there a way to turn It off? thanks!
  7. Hello everyone im new to cakewalk and ive gotten myself a Alesis VI49. My question is how do you bind all the knobs and such on my keyboard to function like he does in this video: (Alesis VI49 Setup and Review - YouTube) guess you cant use links. I know he uses FL Studio but you gotta be able to bind and such with cakewalk to? I have looked everywhere and i cant seem to find where to bind things to the knobs and buttons. Would be nice to be able to use all those extra buttons. Really hope someone can help me as im losing hope in cakewalk and would rather not spend 200 on FL studio thank you all!
  8. I'm having trouble using keyboard customization. I've made some customizations and saved them to default bandlab.kbn, but the bindings revert to some other default whenever I open a project. When I look at 'default bandlab.kbn' my customizations are still there In Workspaces I have 1) Checked "Apply Workspace on Project Load" 2) Set workspaces to use 'keyboard shortcuts' I've also tried 1) Unchecking "Apply Workspace on Project Load" 2) Set workspaces to not use 'keyboard shortcuts' I don't know if this is bug or not. Any suggestions appreciated!

    New user help

    Hi new to cakewalk, I have been trying to record a midi instrument by EastWest, when I hold down the key on the midi keyboard the sound continuously plays but the recording playback just makes a clipping sound and goes quiet doesn't play the sound, I have recorded other midi tracks but holding the key doesn't play any ideas Thank you
  10. I use an audio-technica AT2020 microphone plugged into Scarlett Solo audio interface connected via USB to my computer. This works for all of my programs without issue, having a normal output for all of my other programs that accepts the mic. This leads me to believe the problem lies in Cakewalk. Earlier I noticed that in order to get the mic at a reasonable volume in Cakewalk, I had to adjust the gain on my interface to be as low as it can possibly go, practically mute for any other program. I thought it was odd and inconvenient, but not anything that I cannot work around. Today however, I tried to record and was hit with volume so high nothing was actually audible, just the vague sound of my own breathing. I adjusted the gain, but even at it's quietest the audio is completely unintelligible and unusable. I reset config and it did nothing. If anyone can help me understand how this could have happened and how I can fix it, it would much appreciated.
  11. Let me describe my problem pretty quick: I've been using SONAR (Cakewalk) by Bandlab on my PC for around 2 years now, everything worked without any issues until now. Since the last update, when I open a project, hit play and then PAUSE, it's suddenly freezing and crashes. I already took a look at the Windows event log which just said that it has crashed... Now the weird thing is, that i never changed anything in the program settings since i used it, which is why i am curious what could be the reason for that. I'd be glad to get any help on that Cakewalk - [kick.cwp] 2022-08-06 15-21-05.mp4
  12. I have downloaded Cakewalk and every time i try to open it, it gives me these error messages "cpprest140_2_7.dll was not found" "libmp3lame.dll was not found" "sndfile.dll was not found" "lame_enc.dll was not found" Note: I have resinstalled cakewalk 3 times.
  13. Im fairly new to cakewalk and I have my midi keyboard set up and i can hear it with the input echo, but when i go to use the piano roll or step sequencer and try to make music, or even trying to record with my midi keyboard, it only gets 1 beat from one measure and then completely stops playing, and everything i recorded with my midi keyboard is compiled into one measure. It does the same thing if i try to use a sample track as well. I can record audio with my microphone just fine and hear the playback exactly as it was, but for some reason with the virtual instruments I only get the one beat.
  14. hi I have a issue of Computer music magazine issue 200 which came with the cakewalk rapture synth any way to redeem it or register??? guys help please .. have the .Exe file downloaded
  15. Hey Everyone. Need some help badly. Iv been using cakewalk for the past 3 years and have honestly enjoyed it. But I am having some issues with the playback and any track exporting of any kind. The Issue: While either listening to the raw file in DAW, Bouncing tracks or Exporting a project, I am being met with audio dropouts. But not like complete dropouts. Just volume decreases. Almost like someone it quickly moving the volume fader down and up again, or some major compression randomly kicks in. I have just recently upgraded to a desktop PC after coming from a laptop and I wasn't having this issue on my laptop Ill leave an example below Notice the annoying audio dips in volume and you can visually see the dip in the export. I have updated my drivers in windows and gone to the manufacturer site to get the drivers. I have uninstalled and re installed. Been through a bunch of support with no avail. I have tried a lot of things and I cant even seem to pinpoint whether it would be some sort of sound card issue not liking my interface, Driver issues or what. I have no idea. PLEASE HELP, this is a project ruining issue. PC Specs: *all mid to high specs* Windows 10 Ryzen CPU NIVIDIA GPU I'm using a focusrite Scarlett 2i2 issue track.mp3

    Akai MPK249

    Hope some one can answer a few basic question(s). I have an AKAI MPK249 which has been lying idle for a while and I decided that I will use it with Cakewalk (with my Target Synth as Korg PA600. I have no need as yet for configuring MPK249 for Cakewalk - as Cakewalk will use MPK249 as a Generic Midi Controller for inputs). Everywhere there is only mention about setting up with DAW and basic questions are never answered. In this forum as well. I am not complaining that no one addresses them, but just intrigued that no one seems to miss it. a) Is there a desktop Utility for creating/editing Configurations/Presets for MPK249? I installed MPC essentials, thinking that would provide me that. But its focus is elsewhere almost like a DAW. Strangely that software does not even have a SETTINGS menu!! For example, I have an Alesis Vortex, now for several years. (Like with many other MIDI controllers) I use a Desktop App, which gives a UI that mirrors the actual Hardware buttons sliders and knobs and MIDI functions/sequences can be assigned to them. The configurations can be SAVED to disk and/or pushed to the midi controller. This makes things so much easier working with large Screen, Mouse, Keyboards and UI of Windows to do things. Rather than struggle with the TINY screen and lengthy menu chains on the Midi Controller. b) While I can easily argue in favor of MIDI Controllers configured for specific DAWs, I see more reason for why they need to be configured for Specific Synths - as that is the target of MIDI sequences and commands, especially that are beyond basic MIDI CC/Pitchbend kind of commands.. For example on my KORG PA600, Selecting Styles, Variations, Fades, Performances etc. are special/private MIDI commands (uses MIDI message formats, but actual CCs private). c) Is there a Cake Walk preset for MPK249? I do not see one in the factory list. What is the best/close one to use? d) Is MPC Beats or Essentials of any relevance when using Cakewalk? Thanks in advance.
  17. I'm a new Cakewalk user. A few days ago I decided to test Arminator and I found out that whenever I played the project, the patch in the VSTi would reset. I've already tried setting the bank and the patch to none though track control manager but it's not working. It's really demotivating... Could anyone help? Usually I do my compositions in Musescore and then import the MIDI to Cakewalk.
  18. help, for all the time ive used cakewalk this has been in db (-60 - 6) and not some numbers ranging from 0 - 127, i dont know how i got it like this and i dont know how to fix it, would be lovely if someone could tell me what ive done and how to fix thank you a lot
  19. G'day. I am trying to sidechain a kick to a frequency band in TDR Nova (dynamic eq) - when a kick happens it will reduce the lower frequencies in my vocals to reduce muddiness. the issue i'm having is that TDR Nova will not detect any input. i've worked with sidechaining a lot before (with other vsts) and have never had this issue. i have a send going into the TDR Nova and I have TDR Nova on ext sc (external sidechain mode). been researching for ages and haven't found any solution. hopefully someone with more experience can help me out. other daws have no issues. it appears that you need to route the sidechain signal into inputs 3/4 of the track you add TDR Nova to. not sure how to do this in cakewalk. thanks in advance

    Tascam US2400 issue

    Hi guys, I have the tascam US2400 and it is set up fine in Sonar Professional and was fine in Cakewalk Bandlab until i updated recently. There is a new mackie control dialogue and have checked disable handshake which allows use of the first 16 channels but the rest will not work. I have tried installing the MMcL mackie diealogue but that is not working either. Is there anyway I can use the older mackie control dialogue that was working fine before the update? Thanks Rob
  21. Hey, I downloaded some plugins for Cakewalk but only some of them were found by it. I scaned all folders and nothing. I'm talking about plugins for example: Sitala, Samplab, Komplete Kontrol. Maybe there is other way to install them to my Cakewalk? I've searched for the solutions on YT and nothing... :( I would be very blessed for any of your help
  22. so a few days ago the gain on everything I was recording got unexplainably high and sounded terrible, I found out it was my drivers and I installed new ones meant for my focusrite interface. ever since I kept getting CPU overloads I have tried everything and even uninstalled it twice and then reinstalled it. now when I hit record it either doesn't record until I hit the button three times or crashes. when I hit record and it ends up working my voice cuts out randomly and it sounds terrible, if I add a track for a pre made beat it all just crashes when I hit play. so an answer would be very great right now. I have been trying to figure out how to fix it all day and I'm getting to the point where I feel like buying FL is a better option because everything seems to be running very smoothly on the free version of that.
  23. So, there was an issue with my UI at first. I figured it was because my version of Cakewalk was out of date, so I decided to update it. When I went to Bandlab Assistant and tried to update it, however, it was stuck at "installing." I did some searching, and decided that the best course of action would be to uninstall and reinstall Cakewalk. I backed up my vsts, and uninstalled cakewalk, making sure not to delete shared files. Once I tried to reinstall, however, I ran into the same problem as before, with it being stuck at "installing." At this point I am frustrated and confused, and I am desperate. I see on some forums that you can install it manually by finding the exe file in the system folder. I check there, and sure enough, I find a file called "Cakewalk_by_BandLab_Setup_27.01.0.098_r1.exe" which gives me a sense of relief. I try to open it, and it says "the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable." Under it is another exe file, "Cakewalk_by_BandLab_Update_Setup_26.09.0.006.exe", and I try that one despite being out of date. The wizard fires up, and I select my language, but I am then met with another message saying "This installer requires Cakewalk by Bandlab version 2020.08." My computer is up to date and my drivers are good. I'm confused and nervous, as I have sunk a year and a half on this program and I do not think I would realistically be able to learn another one any time soon. Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this?
  24. I have spent a week trying to connect my Midi keyboard (Oxygen Pro 25) to Cakewalk. The fast forward, rewind, loop, knobs, stop, start, and record buttons are all unmapped while everything else works fine. I have tried fixing it on the keyboard itself, on the preset editor, Cakewalk preferences, and other 3rd party resources but nothing seems to work. At this point I want to just throw in the towel.
