Can not create a ttack

Question

I am new to home recording and I’m having trouble making a track on cakewalk. I have the inputs and outputs correct and can hear sound from the plugins. The track is armed to record but when I hit the record button I get a message saying I am unable to create a track. I was able to make a track until about a week ago. Any tips or advice on the matter would be greatly appreciated

This could be a audio device setting problem. What audio interface are you using and what driver type (WASAPI, ASIO, etc.)? If your using the built in sound card you need to make sure that the Cakewalk audio Sampling Rate is set the same for both windows and Cakewalk

I’m using an m-audio m-track duo. The driver type is usb audio codec and WASAPI shared. I was able to record up until about a week ago then for some reason I can’t not. I also cannot use any loops from band lab or plug ins. I haven’t been able to use the loops from the beginning and I can hear everything fine using plug ins but when I try to record I keep getting the same message

Does the m-track have an ASIO driver? If they do I would try using that instead of WASAPI. If you continue to have trouble please log a support ticket at support@cakewalk.com

The exact wording of the error message or better still an image of the dialog often helps.

And no it does not have a ASIO driver. I have tried every one that I have the option of choosing and nothing. When it was working I had the WASAPI driver selected

Doubt this is driver related.

Possibly trying to write to compressed folder, an area marked read-only or anti-virus/malware  is blocking file creation.

Are there errors associated with this. If so, are they the same as the one posted? If not, what are they?

No. When I try to use a loop from bandlab it will play and I can hear it on the bandlab assistant . Just no sound comes through in cakewalk itself. When I use the plugins that came with the program- bass, drums, electric piano and strings I get the same thing. I can see them play but no sound. But if I go into the plug-in I can hear it just fine

Sorry for all of the confusion. I literally just started doing this a few weeks ago and have no idea what I’m getting into

Yeah, those are completely unrelated to the error.

Maybe it would be best to work through record issue first.

I’m aware they are unrelated. Just put added that in case anyone knew what was up there too. I’d be happy just to get the recording issue straight lol

It might be quicker if you watch some tutorials on basic operations. We have a sub forum here  as well as the highly recommended Creative Sauce videos.  
I also don’t think that it’s a driver issue. Use WASAPI exclusive if you can. It’s next best thing to ASIO. 

Wonder if you use “save as “ and put the project on a different drive, even external, if it would work.
