  1. how can i export a project in which there are two tracks an audio and a midi one.??
  2. Hi there, I've been using cakewalk for around half a year, however I am new to the forum (this is my first post): So not too long ago update 2020.09 was released. Along with it has come some performance issues, and other things which has made cakewalk complete unusable for my audio production. I have turned here because there is (shockingly) no support email to help with these issues. If possible, can someone please redirect me to whoever I can contact for help? First of all the cpu performance of cakewalk has taken a massive nosedive. Projects with 20+ tracks used to run fine, are now completely unplayable and just instantly suspend the audio engine (no matter what the engine or the engine settings) upon trying to play the music. My system has fairly good spec (a Windows10, intel 8th gen i5 @ 2.30ghz and 8gb of ram). Upon further use of the program I find it now able to suspend the audio engine with a single track, (this is usually a single pad with a really long reverb time and no other fx). I have also found a bug wherein you can't open cakewalk after closing it and putting the system to sleep, or at least I believe these are the circumstances which cause this bug. Cakewalk won't open from a shortcut, a pined taskbar shortcut or from the start/search bar. So I used the last resort option to open it with the (sigh) bandlab assistant. This time I got an error message (see attached image below). Another problem I have is that often projects wont open and will just freeze up cakewalk and crash, this is really annoying because I have most of time (I'd guess around 80% of the time) I have to open my projects in 'safe mode' and just say "yes to all", re-save the project without changing anything and reopen the project in regular mode. Idk why this is happening but this is also irritating. Here are some other problems I have with cakewalk which have existed since I shifted to cakewalk (They are from before this update), please tell me what I can do to fix them if they can be fixed. Cakewalk does not run at smooth fps (I think it only runs at 30fps), most DAWs runs at (at least) 60fps or more. Automation of parameters are not smooth at fast tempos and it IS audible. They are smooth at slow tempos, but on fast tempos (more than 150bpm) you can see knobs instead of of moving smoothly, follow a S&H of the automation curve and often misses quick changes in the automation. This is the worst thing about cakewalk and (along with these bugs/problems) is the major reason why I am considering changing my DAW. Automation parameters cannot be chosen without playing the music, I feel the automation write button should pressed and the next parameter changed gets turned into an automation track. Most (if not all) major DAWs use this functionality to search for parameters, however cakewalk does not have this functionality, this one is also really annoying and fix like this would speed up cakewalk's workflow. The surround panner does not include 2.1 binaural audio settings. You can only open fx chain presets if the fx chain is in the ProChannel, I can't seem to open them in the fx rack. Using the arranger preview causes an audible pause and click when going backward to another section. Thanks all for you time, please help my with these problems and help me to find a way to get in contact with support Dav
  3. It wasn't there before but today I opened cakewalk and after I created a new track it was just there.
  4. Hello, Brand new to all this. Just downloaded Cakewalk. The tutorials I have seen so far all introduce the different sections of the app and explain what they do. I haven't a clue how to actually proceed with anything. I really need to watch someone go through, step by step from the start, and show how to add a few tracks and special effects. Just got a Akai LPK 25 keyboard to start playing with. Any links to actual videos of people making their projects would be super appreciated. I'm lost. Thank you!
  5. Hi all, I'm new in this Cakewalk by BandLab, previously using the Cakewalk Pro Audio (decades ago... >.<). I wonder whether this version of Cakewalk has the Event List view, because I've been searching for it but still no luck. Fyi, I'm using Cakewalk by BandLab version 2020.05 build 039 64bit. The Help Center told me there is shortcut to open the Event List view (https://help.cakewalk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360036997613-Keyboard-Shortcuts), but I think the version I installed doesn't have any of it. Even though the Cakewalk Online Documentation has it (https://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=4&help=Views.27.html), but maybe for different version I guess? Not found in track popup menu: Not found in Views menu: Could anyone please let me know where I can find it in the application? It is very useful feature to see/manage the MIDI messages. I really appreciate for any helps, thank you. With best regards.

    Audio messing up

    I was just recording my voice on cakewalk for the first time and I played it back and it was terrible i sounded like a chipmunk and i have been up how to fix it for the last few days and it hasnt helped me at all its not my mic either because i used it on audacity and it sounded just fine
  7. Hi everyone, I'm new to Cakewalk and starting my learning, have a question, i have a vst with different sounds on it, birds, rain, thunder, etc. Also has the capacity to pan the different sounds. I made a recording but in the end it only recorded one single sound, plane, no variations, no panning, no effects. Where should i go to set this so in one track, it could be possible to hear all the combinations of a single vst. The plugin i'm using is Serenity by Quiet Music Thanks
  8. HELLO, I have Sonar 7 and my SI (bass, drums, piano and strings) are gone now that I have installed Cakewalk by Bandlab. They are in Cakewalk by Bandlab but not in my Sonar 7. Is there a way I can get them to be in both? How would I get the instruments back to Sonar? Thanks.
  9. The new 2020.08 update for Cakewalk is now available for download. I'm on the install screen for hours after my umpteenth update (after uninstalling and re-installing it again :( I really want to get this update in soon, since Cakewalk has been giving me dropouts left and right despite my troubleshoots with driver settings and etc. I need those bug fixes, FAM! Please? :) Here's a snip from my screen to give a glimpse at what I'm talking about regarding Bandlab Assistant<
  10. Hello there. I have a some issues with loading up SINE player By orchestral tools as A VST on CAKEWALK. It used to work fine but because I accidently deleted it before, I had to reinstall it and then I began to see problems. I tried to uninstall and reinstall my vsts of LAYERS, and SINE player multiple times but it just doesn't work and keeps having the same problems. So whenever I load up a new project and just add in a new track and choose SINE player It loads up most of the time (although atm it keeps freeezing and not responds to anything i do with it when I load it up. It also makes CAKEwalk not work and freeze too when it loads up too) and whenever I try to load up one of the Virtual instruments that come with the LAYERS package that I have with SINE and it just freezes and not responds and forces cakewalk to not respond aswell. I tried to move the sine player folder that stores my VSTs from my user folder to my VSTplugins folder that has most to all my vst i use and when I opened up it froze and then asked me to login to my ORCHESTAL TOOLS account. I then did and it just froze. so I had to just close cakewalk with the task manager. I tried to open cakewalk and SINE PLAYER again and I opened up SINE and I saw I didnt need to login again. I tried to load up my vsts but it just froze and not responeded along with cake walk and I had to close it with the task manager again. I did nothing else beyond that recently regarding SINE and its VSTS. whenever I try to open up sine player standalone without cakewalk it seems to freeze and not respond after I try to load up a virtual instrument with it later loading up just fine after 5 - 30 seconds or (even more) with it then showing a blue loading bar in the top right corner to show (what i think) that the instrument is loading its sound files . then later when and when I try to use the specific instrument in SINE after it disappears it then works fine (this is when I load up 1 instrument when I first open SINE player). when I remove the instrument that was just loaded I then load up another one or the same one, it either freezes like last time and then loads up the blue bar or just loads up with the blue bar without the freezing and then loads up the instrument. the blue bar can load up to more than 5-20 seconds at a time. If anyone knows a solution to this Id be very grateful.

    Cakewalk Crashes

    Hi guys, I've tried everything at this point but my cakewalk song keeps crashing everytime I hit play. At first the problem occured out of nowhere. Upon rebooting it said that I had missing plugins, which were included among the pre-loaded FX chain audio effects. Only some of these effects were on my tracks, so I removed them from my tracks: still results in a crash. After rebooting and redownloading 3 times, I stopped receiving missing plugin errors; however, cakewalk still crashes everytime I hit the play button. It should also be noted that a lot of the FX chain effects are now missing entirely, even with a fresh download of Cakewalk. Other files seem to work when I load them, so I'm not sure how to fix this track. I tried copying the midi data and making a track template too. This also resulted in an unprompted crash. I have a mid-range PC that I built 3 years ago and can run all of the Adobe Suite no problem, so I doubt its a hardware error. I sent out an email to the support staff and haven't heard anything back. I'm really bummed because this track was turning out really well and I want desperately to return to it. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for your time.
  12. I cant open cakewalk by bandlab. It says "sorry, this plugin require adobe premiere pro"
  13. Hey, I'm using Unreal Instruments' Metal-GTX soundfront in Sforzando and there are these custom slides you can put on your guitar MIDI. My first question is if this is the correct place to ask about this. As for the real question is how could I make it so that an effect would play later in the note without cutting it short and starting another sound, breaking it. Perhaps there is a way to blend them together? Maybe delay the effect's start? Particularly I want a guitar sound to play and end with it sliding to the next.
  14. I can still hear them thorough audio but i cant edit a certain plugin. Ive tried expanding my track view and setting my track to “FX” but i still cant see them. Also this doesn’t seem to be the case if i add a new track and add a vst. I can still see it and edit with a new track. So i think its a problem with my preexisting tracks?
  15. Hey everybody, I'm completely new when it comes to working a DAW and making digital music. I have no idea what are the necessesary components to make this all work or not. I know how to use a lot of the Adobe Suite of softwares (like premiere, photoshop, illustrator, etc. but DAWs are a completely different animal. I decided to use Cakewalk because it seemed somewhat easy for a newcomer; however, I am having several problems and questions as I start trying to use Cakewalk: 1. Do I need an input device? I am only planning on making instrumental beats using midi or sampled sounds. I see on every online tutorial to link an input device, which seems unnecessary to me as I am willing to just use the digital akeyboard displayed inside Cakewalk. Any guidance on this subject would be appreciated. 2. Do I need an audio interface? All tutorials seem to talk about an audio interface and I am unaware of its importance to what I specifically want to do with Cakewalk. I would prefer to not have to buy a 100 dollar interface, especially since I am just starting out. 3. What driver mode should I be in? I keep hearing that ASIO is the way to go, so should I download ASIO4All and switch over from MME (32 bit)? 4. I receive an error saying 'Silent Buses Detected' followed by 'master'. What do I do? Again, I have no familiarity with the common lingo of DAWs, so I have no idea what this error message wants me to do, nor do I understand what's wrong. Any help or insight would be appreciated. This whole setup has been incredibly confusing and I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do. Thank you!
  16. When I start singing on the mic (Nt1a) the beat comes through on both headphones fine (free online beat), but my voice recording comes through on just the one ear. Even when I playback the audio, my voice still comes through Only one ear. I tried watching a YouTube video to see if the volume still only came through one ear but it worked fine. So it’s not the headset. I have a focusrite Solo interface. Does anybody have the solution to this problem?
  17. I am using the Grace VST, and even with the sample preview turned on, it isn't making any noise at all. I actually can't even figure out how to hear what I am doing to the selected sample at all either. I also tried the TX16Wx VST and no sound came from that either, leading me to believe that the problem is in Cakewalk. I do get noise from the TTS-1 though, so I really don't know what is going on here.
  18. Hi I am experiencing audio issues. When playing, during playback, and in the EXPORTED file, every 20 to 60 seconds, there is and audio dip. The audio dips out and back in (lowers in volume). No issues on previous laptop. Thanks
  19. I have recorded a song which consists of mainly guitar and vocals I recorded using a mic. At the end, however, I add in a drum plugin and an additional layer of guitar. In my project, the drums sound perfectly in time with this additional layer of guitar. But, when I export the project (to WAV) the drums are just slightly out of time, by less than a second but it is definitely still audible. Please help, cheers.

    808 bass sample crackles

    I am new to cakewalk and music production as a whole so forgive my poor wording. My speakers cant handle this 808 bass sample resulting in "crackly" sound when it plays. I'm not sure how to fix it, I have tried adjusting the sample rate and nothing seems to work. As I stated I am new to music production so I am using the default audio drivers on my Surface Book 2 laptop(Driver mode:WASAPI Shared Sample Rate:44100 Input and Ouput Devices: Realtek High Definition) If more information is needed let me know. Below I have linked how the audio should sound(lil peep 808 1.wav) and how it sounds when I play it in cakewalk(808 bad). Any help is greatly apperciated. 808 bad.avi lil peep 808 (1).wav

    No Sound

    I'm a beginner to sound/music production and just installed Cakewalk, but anytime I open the program, ALL sounds turns off through my whole computer (windows), any idea why?
  22. I’ve tried my best to answer as many emails and comments as I can, this should help if you’re having any Cakewalk install issues! https://youtu.be/oVJ7A68yTUQ
  23. Hi everyone, I would need, if possible, the cakewalk manual in Italian. Can anyone give me information? Thank you all in advance!
  24. after the april update every time i run cakewalk I need to reset my settings: Show all modules Module arrangement Enable track peak markers Enable Bus Track markers and more Any idea how to fix that
  25. Just wanted to know if Guitar Rig 5 is compatible to Cakewalk as a plug in, I've read other forums and haven't really gotten a clear answer. Simply put, is there a way I can record live guitar with the effects of GR5 on my Cakewalk DAW? Or do I have to just record on GR5 and then import that file?
