  1. I just installed Cakewalk by Bandlab and every time I open it it creates a new "Cakewalk Projects" folder on the wrong drive. Cakewalk is installed on my D drive. In preferences I set the Projects folder to the F drive, and made sure the folder exists. I close Cakewalk, delete the folder on D, open Cakewalk and it creates a new "Cakewalk Projects" folder on D. I even restarted the computer, same problem. I re-checked preferences, they look good (still has F for Project folder location. I searched the registry, every entry I can find shows F as the location for the folder. Cakewalk creates the new folder on D as soon as I run it, before any project is opened or created, so it isn't just picking up a ghost path from an old project or anything. I've been a Sonar user from v6 through Platinum, so I know my way around the program fairly well although it's been a couple years since I had Sonar installed. I did install Platinum so I could access the plugins, and I installed the plugins from X3. I also made sure my installation of Platinum specified the F drive for project files (and checked the registry, everything there looked correct), but it too creates a new projects folder on D as soon as I start it. How do I make it stop? In the scheme of things it's not that big of a deal to delete the empty folder, but when I get into a flow state I'm likely to accidentally save to the wrong location. Is there some registry key that isn't labeled with a friendly name that I'm missing? Thanks for any ideas. -Mike Windows 11 Intel i7 11700K 32GB RAM Asus ROG Strix z590E Mobo Focusrite Scarlett 8i8 2nd gen

    Extreme UI Latency

    I am completely new to the world of DAWs so apologies in advance for sounding clueless. I have just installed Cakewalk and I essentially cannot use it at all due to extreme lag with the UI. Anytime I click anything or even try to adjust the window, there is a 4-5 second delay before the action is registered. I am not sure how to fix this or even what settings I should begin to look into. To the best of my knowledge, all settings are at default, and my audio drivers are up to date. Does anyone have any idea what I might try to fix this issue? In case it is helpful, here are the relevant specs of my PC: CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700 RAM: 16 GB DDR4 3200 MHz Like I said before, I am completely new to this stuff so please let me know if there is any other information I can provide to help diagnose the issue.
  3. I know how to change audio and midi preferences in "preferences" but is there a way to change those per project? I need different settings for different projects. Thanks
  4. Can anyone tell me why the option for 'surround' is not showing under project (Preferences/ Project)?
  5. Hello. I'm using the Yamaha Ag06 Audio Interface. I'm also using a voice meter virtual program to calibrate. This time I installed it for cakewalk recording, but I can't choose my ag06. I tried reinstalling the Cake Walk, reinstalling the Amaha driver, and setting Yamaha as my default audio device, but I still couldn't catch it. Let me know if you know how to catch it. It's very urgent.
  6. Many of the threads in this (Feedback Loop) forum section are about a user wanting Cakewalk by BandLab (CbB) to work like another daw instead of the way CbB presently works. The requests can roughly be divided intro three groups: feature request, task performance and GUI feedback. Feature requests are beyond the scope of this thread since the request is typically something another daw offers that Cakewalk by BandLab does not or an improvement to an existing feature. An example is this link: https://discuss.cakewalk.com/index.php?/topic/4314-browser-notes-font-size/ Task performance is the steps a user must take to perform a task. An example is this link: https://discuss.cakewalk.com/index.php?/topic/4203-markers-delete-button/ GUI feedback is how the daw provides feedback to the user. An example is this link: https://discuss.cakewalk.com/index.php?/topic/4572-clip-gain-vs-waveform-ala-pro-tools/ My idea is for Cakewalk by BandLab to add two pagess to the "Customization" section of "Preferences". One page is for the user to create task performance macros and the second page allows the user to select daw gui emulation. This idea is for Cakewalk by BandLab to have customization similar to ways Microsoft lets Office users create macros and emulate competitive products. The macros page should have buttons to "learn", "edit" and "delete" along with three columns titled "Name", "Macro" and "Enable/Disable". Each row would contain a macro that would perform whatever task the user has programmed. The gui emulation page would have a drop down menu with the name of various daws. Once a competitive daw name is selected a feature list window opens. Check boxes allows the user to enable or disable a variety of gui features.
  7. Hi All! There use to be a setting that allowed the time cursor to remain at the time where you stopped playing/recording, rather than reverting back to the start time of when you pushed play/record. Is this feature still in the product, and if so where is the setting? Thanks in advance! Mike
