I'm a newbie at audio production but have used a Adobe Audition for simple stuff since 2007. Currently using Cakewalk and taking online classes for audio production. I'm almost done with the basic course, but have a problem with the final exercises. I'm mixing about 16 tracks and a lot have plugins of chorus/reverb/eq. Whether I play them back or try to mix down to a WAV file, I'm getting clicks, pops, static, and dropouts. The audio still plays and I don't get an official pop-up on the screen when it's happening, but I can clearly hear it, i.e., a lead vocal in the middle cuts out or a harmony vocal on the left or right cuts out with static and returns a few seconds later. I have a new HP Envy desktop I got last year using Windows 10. I've tweaked settings for my buffers and have tried to "freeze" tracks and mix down to smaller groups - still have issues. Let me know what tips you recommend so I can get the right settings and have normal function without dropouts. Thanks! NOTE: I've accessed this file below, done all that it says, but still hear hiss and dropouts during playback even though transport keeps on rolling. http://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=Troubleshooting.18.html
Well I have one for you. I use CAKEWALK with a "LIVE" keyboard to play Roland Rack Mounted JV1080's and also to play VSTs from a second keyboard. The Live keyboard hooks to a MOTU midi Express the runs the hardware rack mounts. When I have NO VSTs loaded BUT the computer audio turned up, EVERY KEY or SET OF KEYS I hit causes a high pitched squeal that lasts for about .50 seconds. You can hear it in the studio monitors when I play the rack mount synths. I loaded CUBASE and tried the same set up. NO MIDI HIGH PITCHED SQUEAL with every key OR every volume tweak on the midi controller. If someone can figure this out you can probably walk on water and not scare the fish. I will even try to record this sound and attach it to this post at a later date.
So, I am very new to Cakewalk, and over the last few days I've been learning the ropes enough to get back to tracking. Having said that, everything was fine until this morning. Now whenever I add a new audio track, some lady (presumably the warden of a women's prison) shouts at me "TRIAL!!!" until I panic and close the program. No plugins active when this happens. Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, Lenovo M92 with 8GB ram and 500GB HDD. PLEASE HELP BEFORE SHE INVADES MY DREAMS!!
