I downloaded cakewalk after a friend recommended it, and was excited to use it only to meet with these massive lags after i installed on my brand new pc. The pc has a i5 2.2 GHz quad core processor, 8 GB RAM and still cakewalk seems to lag even on an empty project. I have increased the buffer size to the max value cakewalk offers. The cpu also doesnt seem to overload showing very normal usage patterns. When I opened a demo file I realized I couldn't play the track. Also to note that I am still able to manage to use all features except one: the play feature. I can add plugins and make music but never play them. Pics describing my problem is attached below. Even lags are bearable but not being able to play any tracks makes it impossible for me to use cakewalk. Can somebody help me with my case??
Hi Folks, In the last while I have been experiencing a problem where I try to playback a track and I get a lot of distortion and the playback is slow. Sometimes it will clear up if you let it play for a second but most times the problem doesn't stop. If you stop the track and wait a moment it will usually play properly although I might have to do this several times. This happens most often, but not always, when I have an instrument plugged in and attempting to play along with an existing track. It will happen when I am only playing back but not with as much frequency. This shouldn't be a resource issue as it will happen while playing back nothing more than a stereo drum track. I am running Windows 10 on an Intel I7 @2.93GHz, 24GB of Ram. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers Jimmy
I'm editing my project, and when I open console view, cakewalk becomes unusable - it lags so much. Adding new VSTs takes forever, faders are not responding, it takes a while to even pause playback. I have around 10 tracks, each with 0 to 2 vsts loaded. Task manager shows that around 30% of CPU power is used, about half of RAM memory, so I guess it isn't problem with my hardware. Everything is fine and Cakewalk works great as long as I don't open console view. EDIT: I was then working on a project with just one track, everything was also fine EDIT#2: funny thing I noticed: during first ~30,40 seconds of using program everything was fine, so fluent that I thought the issue dissapeared, but after that time, the program started to slow down again.
