    Cakewalk MIDI

    I'm currently working on a song, and for some reason, cakewalk decides to stop MIDI playback. Nothings wrong with the drivers, it's not an audio dropout either. The velocity bars just turned grey/gray... help? I've tried everything in the Cakewalk MIDI playback manual.
  2. This is the scenario, I have a lot of external gear controlled by MIDI tracks (output) and a few controllers providing MIDI In. If I open a project where one of the external devices is disconnected / powered off / not available, then the MIDI data is assigned to a random MIDI device Tracks receiving input from the missing midi controller are set to receive input from random MIDI devices(s) Tracks outputting to a missing MIDI devices are, more often than not, assigned to a random VST within the project This causes havoc when opening the project, and it's not possible to prevent this from happening. It's particularly problematic for outputs - they get assigned to a random VST in the project, which can result in a program change being sent - which then changes the VST patch the project was originally saved with. E.g. A test project with Novation SL2 connected (it has both MIDI In and MIDI Out, to demonstrate ) If I open the same project, without the SL2 connected: The MIDI output on track 1 has been set to control Xpand2 (resulting in a patch change) The MIDI output on track 1 has been changed from 'None' to a random MIDI output device The MIDI input on track 2 has been set to a random device in the MIDI input list The changes were made silently - no warnings given - which makes it very easy to miss in even in a fairly simple project. I guess there was a use case for this at some point, but frankly I can't imagine how this behaviour can be of use to anyone... 😉 Instead, can please we have an option in preferences along the lines of If this option is checked, when opening the project, any MIDI inputs / outputs set to missing midi devices are set to 'None' rather than some random allocation. This would massively help my workflow - at the moment I'm on tenterhooks every time I open a project (esp. at a different location), looking for any silent changes that have been made. Hopefully the checkbox option would be a quick fix to prevent the craziness of above. I guess the longer term solution would be a dialog presented when opening the project to prompt the user to select the Midi device to be used for each missing MIDI device - similar to what happens for audio. Cheers, Matt
  3. Here are eight REALLY GOOD videos that provide a comprehensive overview of MIDI. Understanding what midi is is key to understanding how you can use it inside Cakewalk by Bandlab efficiently. +++ Video 01 MIDI Signal Path +++ +++ Video 02 MIDI Message Types +++ +++ Video 03 DIN (5 Pin) MIDI +++ +++ Video 04 MIDI Protocol +++ +++ Video 05 Channel Messages +++ +++ Video 06 MIDI Clock +++ +++ Video 07 SYSEX And More +++ +++ Video 08 USB MIDI +++
  4. I'm very new at this so please don't attack me for not knowing things. I'm sure it's an easy fix but I've tried and tried and tried to no avail. I can't get cakewalk to record any midi from my yamaha piano. I've got it set up with a USB2Midi cable, the computer's recognising it fine, I've followed all the instructions online to get it set up the way it should be, but for some reason cakewalk still won't recognise when it's being played or record anything. I'm at my absolute wits end, please help!
  5. How can I remove the solid bars in all my midi tracks? Would prefer notes or dots when active in a measure/
  6. How do I get rid of a Synth Plug-in loading I no longer need to be in a project. (mainly to save DAW resource) In this instance I'm talking about Addictive Drummer 2 and this is the scenario 1. Use midi to 'play AD2' into Project as Audio 2. Now I have all my audio drum tracks I no longer need to load AD2 3. Delete the midi track and all the previous tracks that were pointing to record from AD2 all show as audio tracks So now when I save and load the project - I notice that it still loads AD2 even though I'm no longer using it. How do I stop it loading? It's not a show stopper by any means, but I'm just curious how to release that Synth from the project. Stay safe peeps.
  7. Hi guys, someone help me please...frequently I got an error of a strange midi device being disconnected... Cakewalk asks if I want to change the output to an available device...no matter if I answer yes or not, frequently I got this error message.... Thanks for your help
  8. Hey Group I'm not sure if this has been started, but it would be cool if there was a forum/room/whatever where people can share articulation maps. I'll start by asking if anyone is creating a map for NI's Session Guitarist - Strummed Acoustic 2? Thanks!!

    Does CbB Support MPE?

    Does Cakewalk by Bandlab support Midi Polyphonic Expression or MPE as it is sometimes called? MPE is a method of using MIDI which enables multidimensional controllers to control multiple parameters of every note within MPE-compatible software. In normal MIDI, Channel-wide messages (such as Pitch Bend) are applied to all notes being played on a single MIDI Channel. In MPE, each note is assigned its own MIDI Channel so that those messages can be applied to each note individually. +++ This article +++ indicates the upcoming release of Ableton Live 11 will support MPE. I don't have any hardware that supports the feature but, what got me curious was this statement:
  10. Hi. Is there an easy way to assign a knob to a vst plugin? I mean, like in FL studio you have the option to browse all the paramaters available for a vst or plugin in the browser folder or inspector, and also the standard option to right-click a button and learn the knob you want to assign. However most of my plugins doesn't work with the standard way to learn the knob button to be assignable. So, Is there a folder or part where I can have access to all available parameters for a vst/plugin? i.e. The native Cakewalk instruments like Electric piano it doesn't comes with the option to assign the knob to control some parameters such as Drive, Tune, etc at least that's what I've seen imo. I mean, I know the standard way to assign knobs but I want to have another way to access to the full list of available parameters and link them like in FL studio Global link parameters or the "last tweaked" function . Thanks in advance!
  11. Hi folks! I wanted to share a few tips that can really get you moving with MIDI in Cakewalk by Bandlab. Warning - veterans may still learn WATCH HERE: https://youtu.be/1115-DJPznI
  12. Hello I have Volca Sample connected via USB MIDI Interface (midilink mini - MIDI to USB cable) to Cakewalk. However, I am only able to trigger one step/note from my Volca. I read somewhere that "The Volca Sample uses channels of MIDI: one for each of the ten parts." Does anybody know how I can trigger all of the steps/notes from the Sample? Thank you very much in advance! Cheers, spacekid.90
  13. According to Release Notes for Cakewalk 2020.09, “Cakewalk now uses UTF-8 encoding by default for all text strings, including track name, clips names, Lane descriptions, Arranger sections, Notes Browser, Lyrics view, etc.” This is good news, but it’s not true for MIDI files that Cakewalk creates. Whenever you try to save or export a project as MIDI file (in any of the suggested MIDI formats), all UTF-8 gets lost, and all non-ASCII characters turn to question marks. Does anybody know a way to save Cakewalk project as MIDI while preserving UTF-8 encoding of text strings?
  14. I want to press a key on my controller and have it play the same note with the same velocity no matter how hard I press, or with a little give. How? thanks
  15. Hi there, I made this Symphony completely in Cakewalk. Symphony Composed by Enrique Lacárcel. I had the privilege of personally consulting with Enrique for this piece. He himself was inspired by the work of John Williams "Across The Stars" Samples used from Chris Hein. I really like this program, after using several other programs I keep coming back to Cakewalk. My thumbs up to the developers. However, I am missing one important part and that is "Expression Maps". Me and many others would be grateful for this. For now I draw in all the key switching notes. Hope you like it and thanks for listening. Frank DB Or here https://www.bandlab.com/aboutjay/unscripted-suite-ii-love-theme-82bd9758?revId=4710f038-c90b-eb11-96f5-501ac5b31de6
  16. I made this video not to long ago to help answer a question for a subscriber. I thought I’d drop it in her as well. Hope it helps!
  17. Hello, got the latest Waves OVox plugin and added it to the Fx Rack on an audio track. It does work as expected but unsure how to make the new MIDI out feature work. Can't seem to figure out how to send MIDI to a synth or instrument. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
  18. Cakewalk & I seem to have a difference of opinion I am of the view that when I export a separated out instrument [Drumz] from ChordPulse that that should ne the only track I see in the DAW. Cakewalk OTOH, seems to think I need all the spaces for the instruments I left out when I saved the track to MIDI. Does anyone know if there's an option to save all channels on 1 track? There was no dialog box for it when I imported it to Cakewalk. The process works fine in Reaper and to a lesser degree in Waveform & Mixcraft 7. Only CWBB seems to want to sh*t empty channels all over the track window.
  19. Hello friends! I'm new to this wonderful software and community, and so far I'm loving it! I need your help, please. I'd like to ask you if it's possible to start from a MIDI file with different tracks, and change each track to a different plugin instrument of my liking? I did something of the sort via the option "Replace Synth", right clicking on a specific track. The problem is that it changes all the tracks at once to the same plugin and patch, and if I try to change another track to a different sound from the same plugin (LABS by SpitFire Audio) again it changes all of them to that one sound. I've always dreamt of reimagining some themes from my childhood like the Super Mario World themes, with more modern sounds. I know this has been done lots of times, but I'd like to try myself. Any help would be much appreciated! Many thanks in advance!!!

  22. Hello All I watched a YT video that showed routing the midi track out to TAL, but when open the midi track out, the TAL plugin isn't an option. I inserted the TAL plugin into the audio track that I want to effect, but I still don't see a way to route the midi track to TAL. Any help is appreciated!
