Working on multiple devices?

Question

Hi.

I'm new to Cakewalk and Bandlab, and just wondering if it's possible to work on multiple devices?

For instance, I mainly work on my PC but sometimes on Laptop, so is there a way I can work on the same project on both devices?

Also Bandlab on Laptop and Android device?

Cheers.

Steve

I do this often between my office PC, Studio PC and laptop.

The way I do it is by using my mega cloud account (although you could use any other cloud sync app like Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox etc).

My setup is as follows:

  • I have a project sync drive E:\Projects
  • The Mega client is setup to sync the E:\Projects directory
  • My main cakewalk projects live in E:\SEQUENCE, picture cache is E:\PICTURES, global audio is E:\WAVEDATA, templates are E:\TEMPLATES

When I first boot up any of the PC's, I let Mega do it's sync (takes around 20 secs) and then run my CopyFromMega.bat batch file:

ROBOCOPY F:\Projects\SEQUENCE F:\SEQUENCE *.* /XO /E /COPYALL /DCOPY:DAT 
ROBOCOPY F:\Projects\PICTURE F:\PICTURE *.* /XO /E /COPYALL /DCOPY:DAT 
ROBOCOPY F:\Projects\TEMPLATES F:\TEMPLATES *.* /XO /E /COPYALL /DCOPY:DAT
ROBOCOPY F:\Projects\WAVEDATA F:\WAVEDATA *.* /XO /E /COPYALL /DCOPY:DAT
ROBOCOPY "F:\Projects\FX Chain Presets" "C:\Cakewalk Content\Cakewalk Core\FX Chain Presets"  *.* /XO /E /COPYALL /DCOPY:DAT
ROBOCOPY "F:\Projects\FX Chain Graphics" "C:\Cakewalk Content\Cakewalk Core\FX Chain Graphics" *.* /XO /E /COPYALL /DCOPY:DAT

When I've finished using CbB, I run the CopyToMega.bat batch file:

ROBOCOPY F:\SEQUENCE F:\Projects\SEQUENCE *.* /XO /E /COPYALL /DCOPY:DAT 
ROBOCOPY F:\PICTURE F:\Projects\PICTURE *.* /XO /E /COPYALL /DCOPY:DAT 
ROBOCOPY F:\TEMPLATES F:\Projects\TEMPLATES *.* /XO /E /COPYALL /DCOPY:DAT
ROBOCOPY F:\WAVEDATA F:\Projects\WAVEDATA *.* /XO /E /COPYALL /DCOPY:DAT
ROBOCOPY "C:\Cakewalk Content\Cakewalk Core\FX Chain Presets" "F:\Projects\FX Chain Presets" *.* /XO /E /COPYALL /DCOPY:DAT
ROBOCOPY "C:\Cakewalk Content\Cakewalk Core\FX Chain Graphics" "F:\Projects\FX Chain Graphics" *.* /XO /E /COPYALL /DCOPY:DAT

...and wait around a minute or so for my files to be uploaded to Mega.  Then I can switch my PC off.

I've got a similar set up on all three PC's.  As soon as Mega has done its sync on start up, I can run CopyFromMega.bat to get my latest projects.

I've put shortcuts to the batch files on my desktop, so I just double click them to run:

BTW - the options for ROBOCOPY ensure only newer files are copied, so it skips anything that hasn't changed.


Your BandLab projects, as opposed to Cakewalk projects live on the cloud in any case, so they're automatically sync'd up.

I have a SSD drive in a USB enclosure. I just move it between my computers. 
Just  open the project from the drive. Never noticed any problem with this system.
