About Me

  1. Hey! I did one or two bits songs that i really like with the native Modfilter effect but I also really want to migrate to Ableton's user interface, even though Cakewalk will alway be in my heart;). I started to look a way to use it externally but it only made me understand I could use some advice I'm looking to: . find it and buy it . find a good .vst very similar to Cakewalk's Modfilter (from the DX effects) or even better of course . find an AI capable to recreate it with the help of a screenshot of the effect (here attached btw) . find a way to extract from Cakewlak's files said and cherrished Modfilter THANKS for your help, even so little it might be... and have a good day
  2. Hello! It's been a very long time since I used Cakewalk, and today when I started it up, one of the VST plugins started throwing an error. No idea if it's specific to the plugin, but here are a couple screenshots: This is the first little window: When I click OK I get this: (The support link for Cakewalk is dead, btw.) There is absolutely zero provision for asking Roland about this, so I'm hoping someone knows if there's a fix or if I'm royally screwed.
  3. Does Cakewalk/Sonar allow VSTs to send/receive MIDI CC and System Exclusive Messages? I tried 2 hours to set Cakewalk MIDI/IN outputs, Syes Echoes, etc.., but to no avail.. My use case is the following: I have a 80s hardware synth Korg DW-8000 which responds to sysex messages . Then there is a VST called FB-7999 which emulates the Korg DW-8000 but it also can be used as Sysex Librarian and also realtime Sysex sender to the Hardware (see pic below). So i want this VST "FB-7999" to send its sysex messages when i move its sliders (an send sysex patches) and also receive sysex from the Korg DW-8000 (e.g. to import sysex patches). Reaper - which i just installed to test it out and normally don't use - can do it via simply defining a MIDI output for the same VST. Can Cakewalk do it (which i use since 1997)? Thanks, Peter ps. i found a similar question but not answer here from 2011: http://forum.cakewalk.com/Sonar-VSt-SendReceive-System-Exclusive-Messages-m2214469.aspx
  4. I downloaded the drum player Sitala but its not showing up in cakewalk and is opening as a separate application. I copied all of the Sitala files that I downloaded to my Vst folder and manually scanned it several times but it still didn't show up. I double checked the files, their locations and even redownloaded Sitala a couple of times and it still fails to show up in cakewalk. Is there any way to fix this?
  5. Hi everyone! I have a weird issue. When I load a instance of Poise and UVI workstation (Which had a free give away for 1 day) vst together in one session, it crashes CakeWalk when pressing play. Weirdly enough it doesn't crash when the play head is not at the beginning when pressing play. But when I save the project and want to start it up, Cakewalk crashes on startup. Using the both vst's sepperatly work just fine without any crashe, and am also able to save and re-open a project with no problem. I also updated CakeWalk to the latest version (apparently the last free version update), but stil crashes when loading both vst's. I found out that when I disable ASIO sound drivers it does not crash. I use Fl studio's ASIO driver btw sinds it enables you hear audio of multiple programs while mantaining the ASIO low latency capebilities. In FL studio and Studio One I can use both vst's in the same project without any problems. No crashes, saves and re-open without any problem. At the moment I'm trying out MPC beats as an alternative for poise in CakeWalk....which is AWESOME!...but...not possible to load more then 1 MPC Beats instance as a VST. Which is a mayor drawback for me. Can Serato studio free be used as a vst? Any suggestions anyone?
  6. In Preferences, the option to scan folders for vsts/VSti's has disappeared in my Cakewalk. I can tick the various boxes there, but when I choose manual scan, scan on start-up, etc nothing happens. I've installed some 3rd party virtual instruments and fx and I want Cakewalk to recognise them. Thank you. Neville
  7. I need help. Some plugins are not showing up in Plugin Manager but I don't know how to decipher the log. Any suggestions?
  8. So I am trying to compose music in my free time, and I have chosen Cakewalk. I have several samples (.ogg and .wav) for instruments, and I want to use them to make sounds. I had experimented this with another Daw - LMMS, and the samples work perfectly there in accord to the midi information, though LMMS lacks in mixing and synthesizing options, which is why I decided with CbB, as it looks quite... complex... so I thought it would be better in mixing etc. I have loaded the samples into the "media" tab in Cakewalk now, but when I drag it in, it shows the "audio" track, not a midi track, like how it is in LMMS. I tried creating a "midi track" and then dragging the .ogg/.wav on that, but then the piano roll does show up, but with no sound. How do I create a working midi with samples? I have unsuccessfully browsed every possible thing that could give me the answer... with no luck. I understand, from whatever I read, this has something to do with samplers and stuff I don't know how to do. So can someone please explain me how to do it? Thanks in advance...
  9. I'm sorry if I missed this in another post, but I can't for the life of me figure this out or find the answer I need. I've written some stuff(mainly bass parts) using Guitar Pro and converted it to a midi file. I'd like to utilize some of the VST plugins(like modo bass 2) to record the part, but I can't seem to get the midi part to get played through the plugins. I've tried to import the midi file to a pre-existing project and trying to add the plugin in the FX section of the track, but no volume. The closest I've gotten was when I read to "open" the midi file by itself. I could actually hear the midi part, but was unsuccessful in adding the plugin. When I used the "open" method, it would open with 2 tracks. My midi file and a TTS-1 track. Without doing anything and pushing play, the midi file was played. When I tried to add the Modo Bass 2 plugin to the TTS-1 track it wouldn't play anything. It doesn't allow me to add the plugin to the actual midi file track. I feel like I'm missing something completely easy being that I can't find anything on this. Any and all help would be appreciated.
  10. hey! I recently intalled a couple of grand piano vst s. Cakewalk found them but whenever i try to enter the instrument itself this happens... can someone please help me?
  11. I'm trying to use FL Studio inside of Cakewalk, and leverage the synths I've acquired there. However, I don't want to have a dozen FL Studio instances running if I can at all avoid it. There is an FL Studio Multi VST plugin that theoretically supports 16 inputs, but I can't figure out how to convince Cakewalk that it has that many. The end goal would be to have up to 16 unique MIDI tracks in CW that all point at the same VST, but assigned to different MIDI channels. Hope this is possible!
  12. I just installed cakewalk and I was getting this error message so I uninstalled it and reinstalled it again but this issue is still persisting. I am not able to fix this problem. I tried to search it on YT as well but I didnt get any result. While the install wizard I selected the basic option as well to get it downloaded and my VST plugin folder is in the C drive as well. I am totally lost on whats happening. Any help on how I should get rid of this issue and how should I configure my OS to run it will be appreciated. Also I am running a windows 11 Home version
  13. Hi! I’m getting back into sequencing after many years away and have downloaded the demo of the Korg Triton VST. I’m pretty certain I’ll buy it, but I’m banging my head against the wall with one issue that almost definitely is user error. For the life of me, I can’t figure out how to switch banks/patches on the Triton VST from within Cakewalk. I have imported the Triton.ins file and can select patches, but this has no effect on the sound that plays. Similarly, if I select the patch I want in the Triton UI and then record my track, it reverts to patch 1 when I reopen the project. I’ve also tried sending CC 0 and 32 messages followed by a patch change in the event editor and this has no effect either. I would much appreciate any help that this group can provide. Thanks!
  14. Hey everyone, I'm curious to know what are some of your guys' personal favorite "game-changer" plugins. What Virtual Instruments and/or Effects made your production that much better and brought it to the next level? And how so? For VIs, my personal favorites have to be Reason Redrum/Kong and Native Instruments Kontakt. With Redrum/Kong, it just made my life so much easier making beats/drum patterns. And with Kontakt, the world is literally your oyster... endless possibilities of professional sounds. For effects, it'd have to be the UAD 1073 and Plate 140. Feels like I'm using the hardware versions. And my mixes just sound so much better.
  15. Hi all, I've been having some difficulty getting the Engine from Best Service to run in Cakewalk. I set my VST scan folder to the library I'm trying to use, and also tried to navigate there through the media tab from the right side of the cakewalk dashboard. It seems like Cakewalk isn't recognizing the instrument files that end in the .ytil extension. Any tips on getting this set up? Thanks!

  17. Hi, whenever I bounce a pair of MIDI tracks there's no audio, just a single straight line without a waveform. The project has over 30 tracks and they give me no problem except these 2 which are using a Quilcom SIM-HC vst. I tried freezing/unfreezing them, bouncing through the "Tracks->Bounce to Track(s)" but it still doesn't work. I understand that the problem is the plugin but, considering that I must mix my project and the error could happen again in the future with other vsts, is it possible to do some troubleshooting to solve the situation? Thanks in advance for the help.
  18. Hi, I am using Cakewalk by Bandlab V.2022.11, 64 bit on a Windows 10 computer. For about a month, the Overloud TH3 plugin has been working just fine. I thought it came free with Cakewalk. But today it is requesting a serial number. It is simply that I was running a Demo version that timed out?
  19. I can’t seem to figure out how to rout multiple MIDI channels to one VST instrument. I assume there must be something I simply don’t understand, because this not being possible seems like a bit of a terrible oversight. For instance, TX16Wx can have up to 12 different patches loaded, but Cakewalk seem to only be able to send MIDI to Channel 1 exclusively. Any other channel receives no data regardless of how I attempt to rout MIDI to the instrument. HALion has 16 different channels that all can load patches, but again Cakewalk only communicates with MIDI Channel 1. Seems like such a silly waste to load an entire instrument like this, only to use one single channel. VSTs that transmit MIDI like EON Arp seems to meet a brick wall in Cakewalk too. In pretty much any other DAW it’s simply a matter of selecting to receive MIDI from EON Arp on the instrument track you want arpeggiated, but no such option in Cakewalk? This can’t be right. Or is it?
  20. Link to my post yesterday. The shift-key solution suggested a day ago worked pretty well, my projects opened smoothly, no pop up or lack of sound or whatever. But just now, the problem is at it again and this pop-up appears when I try to open it. And it's even worse When I press Yes to All, the program closes itself again. When I press No to All, the program opens, but all the MIDI tracks I already programmed/made don't make a sound. Note that when I add new tracks though, they still make sound. But I don't want to start from square one, and have this problem roll around again the next day. It seems like a VST/plugin problem considering the way my projects open when I choose No to All in the pop -up. But I want to know, what on earth screws up in the system when I open projects some time after working with them? I opened this project twice yesterday (1 PM, 11 PM) and there was no issue, but more than 18 hours later (right now it's 6 PM) it's stubborn again. This is so frustrating. I don't want to do this every time I want to work on my projects.
  21. Hello, I just finished downloading 8 libraries from EastWest Composer Cloud onto my new computer. I have the ilok license I need in order to use Composer Cloud, and my Cakewalk has been set up to scan the folder where where I directed those libraries. Even after all this, Cakewalk isn't detecting any of these libraries. I don't know what else is missing, and would appreciate some assistance. Johnny

  23. When you bypass a plugin using the (host) bypass top left button, the plugin is not bypassed in the channel strip and vice versa. Furthermore when the plugin is bypassed in the host it shows orange whereas in the channel strip orange means active which is confusing.
