Help! File gone crazy!

Recommended Posts

Hey there, I have an almost finished Cakewalk session that is all of a sudden being all crazy!

When I open it, it displays a huge list of all the tracks and says they're all set to silent hardware busses. Everything is playing and I can change inputs and bus outputs, but it will not allow me to change any track outputs! They are all set to master and play fine.

What the heck is going on? I need to change some outputs on some tracks but now I can't.

If I've ever seen a message like this in the past, I just change the master output or something simple to get it all working again.

I've never had track outputs become locked.

Please help!

Thanks

What happens if you insert a new bus, Can you change the track output to that?

I tried this but it simply will not let me even open a track output!

I've never seen this in decades of using cakewalk

To me that sounds impossible.  I think you need  Cakewalk support on this one. This sounds like corruption.

Indeed. I wonder if I can use mix recall somehow to rebuild the file in a new session?

Frustrating!

Are the outputs selected in the properties page?

Not sure what you mean selected. The output says "master" on the track and in the properties section but it won't let me open the output to change it or do anything.

Update: saved file as a bundle, reopened, it says there's a corrupt audio region and it will be padded with silence, file opens, same issue though.

So a corrupt region on a track somewhere.

I reopened file and deleted all the tracks, add a new track and it works fine. So I guess I have to delete tracks one by one until I find the culprit! Oi

Final update:

I deleted one track at a time and found the one track causing all the grief. I saved the track's effect bin as a preset, exported the audio dry and then created a new track with the audio and efx bin.  Everything works fine now.

There was nothing I could see causing the corruption. It was a track that I hadn't even been working on.  

Thanks

There's been a lot of that going around, but there is an update due in Washington next month which may get rid of some of it.  Probably not all.

I have a massive list of weird goings on lately...

I wish they would fix things rather than keep changing things...
