  1. Hi to all, Yesterday I noticed a bug in the midi CC to/from automation envelopes conversion function that I would like to report. I tried both in the last release 2021.04 and in the latest "early" 2021.06. If the values are of pitch wheel type, there are two distinct (or maybe there's a connection between the two, I don't know...) bugs depending on whether the transformation is performed from envelope to MIDI CC or from MIDI CC to envelope. 1) Automation envelope to MIDI CC: There is probably an error with ( + / - ) in the code of the conversion function because the result is this strange curve. 2) Midi CC to envelope: The peak value never reaches the maximum (+8192) in this case but there is a strange "beveling" on the tip. With other type of midi CC's the conversion function is correct. It's the pitch wheel values that generate problems, probably for the -8192 / + 8192 range of values. I hope that this bug report can be useful in finding the error. It seems to occur only in the presence of values of type pitch wheel in this very useful conversion function that has been recently introduced. The addition of this conversion function has actually proved a lot for me. Be able to visually work with the CC values directly under the midi track (using all the shaping functions available for envelopes) while still retaining the possibility of convert them to the piano roll view. Really useful! Many thanks to all
  2. Hi to all, I would like to report a bug. The bug is related to midi input routing save. As you know, this is a problem that has been present for years, I have noticed in fact that users over time have repeatedly highlighted the problem in different forms and conditions. I don't know why it is still present, I think that when you route some virtual synth it is important to not have to redone again the routing work everytime (...when you can...in many cases you have to delete and load again all the virtual synths because it is impossible to delete anymore the "wrong" midi inputs added) There have been several attempts to explain the problem (modification in connected midi devices of the active device type at the time of saving and later not connected at the time of reopening the project or connected to a different USB port) or to at least limit the bug. But in reality unfortunately the bug does not depend only on the connected peripherals or not...it seems most related with virtual synth input ports. I was hoping that with the last early update, since a change had been inserted in the management of the midi ports of virtual synths, had been fixed but unfortunately this was not the case. I tried through this short video to highlight the center of the bug by simplifying it. In fact, the situation is much worse. In fact, the more complex the midi routing, the more the problem arises, with the usual randomly modified midi inputs (double, triple, all active, none...). In several cases it is not even possible to correct the problem of inputs that always remain active and you have to delete all the uploaded virtual synths and start from scratch, thus doing all the configuration again! For some it simply shows up after saving and reopening the project. In my case if the file is saved and then reopened the input midi channel assignments "seem" to be correct. But I would say that it is only luck, because every now and then the bug also occurs to me as to many others even just reopening a previously saved project. Actually as this video highlights, the bug occurs regardless of the subsequent closure and reopening of CbB under different conditions. Instead if I save the input settings of the various synths such as track settings, delete the tracks and restore the track settings save (without obviously closing CbB) the bug instantly appears as you can see. Unfortunately, this bug has been and remains somewhat annoying. You waste a lot of time reopening or editing tracks to reconfigure everything! I would therefore kindly like to ask you whether you can check what the problem is and solve it once and for all. I am sure that would certainly make so many users happy as the bug has been present for years. From my point of view, routing and managing audio and midi tracks (in this case) is a major feature in a DAW. It is the basis from which to carry out any work. It has to work and certainly once a template is configured the routing (sometimes it can also be quite complex with the various VSTs) should stay. If every time the saves made are not kept and everything has to be redone it becomes... Many thanks for your work and time Ronny
  3. How do I get ProCh button back at top of Inspector? How it is now - no ProCh button!! How it used to be (on older CBB version) Ignore this3rd graphic because I can't get it to delete
  4. Hello, I'm having this error message every time I try to activate the Quadcurve EQ in ProChannel: This is a fresh install of the latest version. I also downloaded the 2021.4 early access version and the problem is still there. I'd appreciate some help. Thank you.
  5. Hey guys! I would realy like to use this feature: It's a easy and fast way of of creating a costum plugins browser layout. Which can also be saved and imported for future Cakewlak installs. I would like to see the changes that I make reflect in the plugins browser Any chance this works in BandLab's CakeWalk version?
  6. There's a latency happening when using the Cakewalk DAW... maybe 200 ms... Doesn't happen with the Pro Tools First DAW... Using same computer same interface... Running a MIDI keyboard into Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 into a Dell 3ghz, 8 gig ram... I think the all of the drivers are up to date... Tried messing with buffer times etc., in the preferences... I know that audio and MIDI latency are different problems... Looked through a bunch of the Forum pages and searched "MIDI latency" but came up with nothing here. If anyone has insight and solutions I will be grateful. Thanks ~Tim
  7. Note insertion option to changing behaviour when inserting note in piano roll by pressing alt and clicking mouse when mouse not released allow moving inserted note not only vertical direction but also horizontal ditrection instead of resizing it. Maybe some option in prefferences where is possible to change this default behaviour of smart tool in piano roll notes insertion when ALT pressed.
  8. I can select track and hide other tracks and see one track in full screen with SHow selected tracks but when i want back all my tracks i need to press H and unhide all of them, would be cool fast function to do that faster than going to Track manager and do it by hand. Feature is brilliant but also need unhide to this to not need to go to track manager : )
  9. Greetings all... When I set up 2 or more MIDI tracks with my hard synth (Ketron SD2) should I also create 2 audio tracks - one for each MIDI track? Or does 1 audio track used for both - or more - MIDI tracks? Much appreciated /Oscar
  10. I see that others on the forum have had problems with TTS-1, but unless I've missed it--and apologies if I have--I have not seen anything quite like what I'm experiencing, so I thought it made sense to start a new topic. I'm having the following problem with TTS-1: When I press a key on my midi keyboard, I'll get a note as usual, but when I release the key, I'll hear that note repeated at a lower volume, then the note sustains indefinitely. The midi information is recorded properly and plays back properly. It's just the actual real-time playing of the TTS-1 that is wonky. It does this with both my keyboard and CbBL's virtual keyboard. Here's the real weird part: I have a project in which TTS-1 is working normaly. When I compare all the settings in this project with one in which the TTS-1 is wonky, I find they are identical. I've painstakingly comparing everything--even parameters that should have nothing to do with midi. I've looked at the midi data in the clips, and nothing is showing up differently in one project's clips compared to the other. I've updated both CbBL and Windows 10 a few times since this started happening. I've deleted and reinstalled TTS-1. I've checked the Microsoft website and my DXi software is up to date. I've been back and forth with CbBL support and so far haven't gotten any helpful feedback. Does anybody have any idea what I'm overlooking? Thanks for any input.
  11. According to this thread in NI forums, it looks like it is finally at least planned https://www.native-instruments.com/forum/threads/host-transport-control-doesnt-work-with-komplete-kontrol-mk2-due-to-ni-removing-mcu-support.329081/page-25 "Hi all, MCU Support for Komplete Kontrol S-Series MK2 and A-Series (including M32) keyboards is currently in development and is nearing completion. It will be available for beta testing on Centercode shortly, and will be available as part of the next Komplete Kontrol software release. Thank you for your patience in the meantime!"
  12. I've downloaded Kontakt 6, but it only appears on my desktop. I need step by step instructions on how to get it from my desktop to where Cakewalk can see it. Thanks in advance for the help.
  13. Hi folks! I'm having a problem. When I attempt to train TH3 (or TH-U, which I'm demoing to see if this problem was just a TH3 issue) to respond to MIDI buttons, all I get is an error message: "No MIDI messages have been received during learn. Check your hardware and software configuration and retry" The MIDI device in question is a nektar IMPACT LX61+. It works fine as a keyboard with various VSTs, and I can use the touchpads on it to control drums just fine with other VSTs. In fact, in the standalone version of TH-U, I can set it as my midi device with no problem and control foot switches with it. It's just inside of Cakewalk that I experience this problem. In the standalone version, there's an 'audio settings' area where I can tell it to notice my MIDI controller, but this is missing from the VST3 plugin version. Has anyone had any success getting TH3 Cakewalk Edition to work with a midi controller at all? Is there something obvious I'm missing? I am relatively new to this stuff, so any insight at all is greatly appreciated.
  14. I am not what you'd call a keyboard player - except for middle C. Therefore I use the numerical "Key" at the bottom of a MIDI strip which lets me play any other key in middle C. What I can't find is a keyboard shortcut for this box. Trying to do it with a mouse is next to impossible, or at the very least, very frustrating. I've been looking everywhere for this shortcut but can't find it. Does a keyboard shortcut even exist for this? As always, much appreciated! /Oscar
  15. Hi all... I know this post is kind of long but I figured I would give as much detail as possible in hopes that someone can get me to stop pulling my hair out. I’ve been trying everything possible to get this working but I keep hitting a wall. My gear: Roland PC-200 mk II MIDI Keyboard controller Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 Ketron SD-2 orchestral wizard Computer: Windows 10 Intel core i7 3770 CPU@3.40GHz Installed memory (RAM) 16gb System Type: 64 bit operating system, x64 – based processor Software (DAW) Used: Cakewalk by Bandlab Reaper 6 Synths: Sample Tank 4 Addictive Drums 2 What I’m trying to do is to use my Ketron in Cakewalk What’s happening is that I don’t get any output sounds. The way I have it hooked up: Keyboard “out” to Scarlett “in” Scarlett “out” to Ketron “in” (This, and “Thru”) are the only 5 pin MIDI connections on the Ketron.) In Cakewalk Preferences “input and output” device, Focusrite is selected. In fact, for output it’s the only choice I can make. On a new track I set the input to “Focusrite USB Omni” Output “Focusrite USB MIDI” I select the Ketron, a bank and a patch. Everything works; The blue light on the Ketron blinks when I press a key on the controller. The VU meters for the track are moving when I press a key on the controller. I can record midi on the track. The only thing is, there is no sound. Even though Cakewalk sees the MIDI signal and can even record the signal, there is no output sound. I’m getting similar results in Reaper. SampleTank 4 and Addictive Drums 2 are working fine. Is there some system setting outside of Cakewalk that has to be changed? I’ve checked to see if the Focusrite is being used as the default in and out in Windows setup. It is. I’ve made sure the volume is up in my headphones. I’ve tried to see if the sound comes out of my monitor speakers. It doesn’t. I’m at a total loss as what to do next. Any suggestions would be so much appreciated. /Bobby
  16. Today, I get Update message on BandLab Assistant. So I did update and got "Update Failed" and "Please Download and then Install BandLab Assistant manually." I downloaded "bandlab-assistant-windows-latest" and then installed it. But BandLab Assistant is saying "A new version of BandLab Assistant is available for update" again, again, again... Seems downloaded bandlab-assistant-windows-latest.exe is ver 5.0.4. I had ver 5.0.4 for a long time. Why do I get update message on BA? I tried on my another PC and getting same results...
  17. Gentlemen. I "pasted special", a lot of bars, and deleted a ton of redundant bars. Still, the project does not stop. I can not find the clip causing this by scrolling to the right. Is there a way to find the (to me invisable) thing after project endpoint?
  18. It's a bit complicated. When I finish my orchestral projects, I consolidate them before exporting to my notation program. for example, I have maybe 4 or 5 different violin tracks, because I use multiple libraries. mostly they are all duplicates, so I consolidate all these tracks into one "master" violin track. and that's just first violins - have to do the same for seconds, violas etc. Plus all the winds, percussion and so on. When I'm done, I have a much neater file to export. I also get rid of keyswitch notes, double notes etc. I assign all instruments to Garritan Personal Orchestra, as it is easy on the Ram. I listen to it to make sure all is right ("proof listening."). Usually, there is no problem. I do the proofing, fix any mistakes, export the midi1 file, and import it to notation. but with my current project, I can't play it back without it crashing. so, I can't proof-listen. I had to just do the consolidating and hope it's all correct. (It's much easier to catch wrong notes by ear than eye, even if you do read music). Any ideas on why my project is suddenly crashing, after I do the consolidating? It never did before, so I'm pretty stumped. The only change in Preferences I recall making recently was to disable notifications while loading. Thanks, Michael
  19. So I originally had an issue of my audio dropping out randomly whenever my project was playing. I did all sorts of things to try to fix the issue (increasing the buffer sizes and limiting CPU usage) but I hadn't fixed the problem yet. I read from an official documentation file on here that I should delete the contents of the Picture Cache folder in the Cakewalk Projects folder. I did this while a project file was open, so I didn't delete some of these files as they were open. I then tried to open another project, and there was a fatal crash dump error or something like that. In order to fix it, I moved the files from the Recycle Bin again back into the Picture Cache folder. I kept trying to open the projects after this, and Cakewalk would start up, but in the top left of the screen it would say "Not Responding" and then it would crash again. Someone please help. Thank you. UPDATE: I fixed the issue! It turns out that a VST Plugin that I downloaded, Youlean Loudness Meter, was causing the crash for some strange reason. I deleted the plugin and opened the files, and my projects are working again :). This was the thread that helped me. And this was the comment that helped. On 12/12/2019 at 6:18 AM, Electric Raven said: Sorry I'm late for the party, but what I'm going to write now may be of help to someone else with similar problems. I am sometimes getting a fatal error for VCRuntime140.dll Here are some ways that you could try fixing it (the fixes might sound stupid but hear me out): 1. Up the samples on the driver you are using - I am using ASIO4ALLv2, and I would go to "Edit/Preferences/Driver Settings/ASIO Panel..." - I am usually using 256 samples, but when I get a crash i up the buffer to 1024 samples or higher 2. Change drivers - For example, if you are using ASIO4ALLv2, try with FL Studio ASIO (also with increased buffer size) - "Edit/Preferences/Devices", tick off the selected input/output and tick the deselected ones 3. Open a clean project - If maybe a certain plugin is bothering you, try opening it (the plugin bothering you) beforehand in a clean project 4. Temporarily remove the plugin that is causing conflict - If a certain plugin doesn't even want to load, try moving its DLL to somewhere else so that CW doesn't even load it - My example for this is VSCO2. Replaced it with Sketching orches, no problems since then 5. Opening CW as administrator - This is usually a simple fix for VSTs that give off lots of errors 6. Differently opening projects - I once couldn't open a project via the "CW Start Screen" pop up, so let me show you a few more ways: 1. By pressing "File", you get a drop-down list of recent projects 2. Going to "File/Open" and searching for the project manually 3. Finding the project manually on the computer (never did this myself) 7. Do NOT go to try and download a DLL fix or anything like that - THOSE ARE SCAMS If nothing of this mentioned above helps, I am truly sorry for your loss.
  20. I’m getting latency shift/drift with Cakewalk by Bandlab. It's the latest version. Rig is Asrock Z87 Extreme 4, core i7, 3.5 ghz, 16 Gb RAM, and Tascam Celesonic 20x20 audio interface using either USB 2.0 or 3.0 (drift occurs with both setups). Windows 10is running with the latest update. The Tascam ASIO is version 4.00, although I did try all tests with the previous ASIO driver version with same latency shift/drift results. Latency drift/shift occurred at any sample rate setting from 8 to 256 samples. Setting at 4 samples is too short for my system to process, and 512 samples starts introducing perceptible latency. The test recording was made at 16 samples with the Tascam, and at higher rates with the R24 (128 samples) and the Helix (I think 128 as well). The recording was 16 bit, 44.1 khz in all cases. Tested same setup with my Line 6 Helix floor as an audio interface USB 2.0 only); although no drift, there were digital buzz bursts every 15-30 seconds. Also tested with Zoom R24 with similar buzz bursts as the Helix. Naturally, it seemed the Tascam Celesonic was at fault, and when contacting them, the service person had me try some different settings in the software control panel of the Tascam, which didn't solve the problem. I even put the Celesonic up for sale at that point, still believing it was the cause of the latency shift, however I'm keeping the Celesonic as it has decent quiet preamps and decent headroom. Ran similar tests with Reaper and Sonar Platinum Pro and had no latency drift/shift, no digital buzzes or pops using the Tascam Celesonic, or the zoom R24. These DAWs tracked perfectly. That’s why I think Cakewalk/Bandlab is the culprit. Before the above tests I reinstalled Windows, all the programs and all the ASIO drivers per instructions (no usb devices hooked up etc.). Check out the MP3 of the test. Drums were MIDI and recorded to an audio track simultaneously. At about 0:27 the first latency shift happens. It’s very obvious. Then it seems to drift farther and farther off until the end of the 1:40 long recording. The background noise is from the kitchen! I think I could get away with using the Zoom R24 or the Line 6 Helix floor becuase the drift/shift corrects itself, but at the expense of a digital burst every so often. If it doesn't ruin the take, then everything seems ok. Zoom R24 preamps are a drag after using Tascam pre's, and the Helix is often at gigs (before COVID19). So I will go back to Platinum Pro for now. If anyone out there has a Tascam celesonic or it's smaller sibling interface, please share your experiences. The "monitor off" in the file name indicates the track monitor for the mic channel was turned off, per instructions from Tascam. Also it would have fed back as the mic was aimed at the speaker to record the MIDI drum track acoustically. I hope you can duplicate this problem and eventually fix it, if you agree it is a problem. Thank you! =================== The issue was solved by a chance discovery that the config file was bloated with many references to ASIO driver installations for various different audo interfaces that had since been uninstalled, however the config file still had those drivers in the conifg file. So, since my old Sonar Platinum was running with no latency issues, I replaced the bloated CakewalkBandlab config file with the much smaller Sonar file and that fixed everything. Problems solved. No more latency jumps or shifts with the Tascam Celesonic and Cakewalk Bandlab. Thanks!! latency test 1 monitor off.mp3
  21. I must have hit a key combination and now when I select a marker that is offscreen, the view doesn't move to it. I can hit the spacebar and play from the marker, but it is offscreen. Thoughts? Thanks, Timbo
  22. I really have never used Melodyne for anything other than converting a real Bass track into midi. A month or so ago I thought I'd bring everything on my main DAW up to date. There was an update for Melodyne as well. Today was the first time I had needed to convert a Bass track since before the updates. The Bass track had 3 parts due to punching in. The first segment which was more than 1/3 of the song converted over no problem. But, the second clip just froze up at the "rendering audio" point and the wheel went round and round forever. I opened Task manager and it showed that Cakewalk was not responding, So I closed it and tried again. I had saved like I always do after any major change so my first conversion was fine. This time the second part worked but when I tried the 3 clip everything froze again. I hadn't saved thinking this was all working now. So back to task manager and re open project. Now no matter what I couldn't get the 2nd or 3rd clips to render, Odd? CPU was showing no action. I copied the folder to my back up drive , opened the song on my old W7 beater which is way out of date and the parts converted without issue. So I got what I wanted. So is this the "new" version of Melodyne not working well with Cakewalk??
  23. I'm signed up to bandlab, (windows 10) I've installed the software, and I've tried to install Cakewalk! Once i click install via the launcher i'm then presented with a list of options. I click each of these options and wait...and wait.......and wait................and wai....you get the picture. Once the waiting is over instead of an open button on the launcher, i'm presented with an 'install' button, exactly the same as when i launched the launcher. So closing the launcher and re-start and there is the open button! HURRAY!! But wait, there is more installing to be done. First it seems the instruments didn't download, then when i launch Cakewalk, i get two errors, these i ignore (because i have absolutely no idea what they are) and the app launches. Tho and behold, i can't create a project or pretty much do anything! There are no plugins for example. I have also had five "this file is corrupt" errors after installation! How on Earth do i get this working on my pc?
  24. I opened an old project to work on it, and it had some clips using V-vocal. That one is long gone. Clips go silent at those bars. Can I save it in any way?
  25. Can we make "Note Names" for some virtual instruments which have articulation key switches and add it to "Use these Note Names instead" drop down list in the Note Names dialog box at the PRV? Need making .ins file to just realize it? or making drum maps instead is better?
