  1. Scook wrote a utility for this I think it’s a thread somewhere in the sub forum for ? I’m on my phone so to lazy to find it. But try a Google search with those words. It’s super simple with his utility
  2. Yes the Beta 58 is the most common mike on stage. You can eat it and it won’t feedback. And it most certainly takes very loud vocals no problem. A plain SM 58 is fine but if you plug both in and switch back and forth there’s a very noticeable difference in sound. If you are having trouble with plosives roll off below 150 hz. Even the cheap mixers have a hi pass filter.
  3. Definitely submit the crash dumps files to both Cakewalk and Auto tune.

    What you are experiencing is called a Loopback. Audio is going out to your interface so you can monitor it and play in time. You are correct that it should not Loopback to the new track. Make sure that what you are hearing is actually recorded to the track. Make sure Metronome during playback is not selected. Solo the track and listen. You can test if the Loopback is happening by arming a track for recording and start recording with out playing your guitar and see if the meters move. Does the audio interface use a software mixer? You might need to check there for a setting that causes the Loopback. Other than that your settings all look good in the screen shot. If this is a brand new interface it is possible that this is a defective
  5. Good call and that was my next question too. We now are told there is no activity of meters. This implies just that. But usually the audio engine gets reset when you re open a project. Which is another good call by @pwal³ Then all that it could be is the global mute. Or a hidden track or buss is soloed. That’s why I suggested toggling those to reset. The transport module is the first place you look when this happens.
  6. The transport module has both global mute and global solo buttons. Toggling those will eliminate that as being the issue. Open console view and observe if all track meters are showing playback. Observe if all buses are showing playback. Observe master bus. Then observe if the hardware buses are showing action.
  7. Back when we got the big kick in the face from Gibson the forum was pretty focused on solutions to what we could do to sustain Sonar for as long as possible. Of course we were certain that the server for CCC would be shut down and (like perpetual licensing ) we had no clue when. My action plan was I installed and activated a copy of Splat on every computer in the house. In my case that was I think 7. I figured this lessened the odds of computer failures killing Splat. So that 2006 computer I mentioned above still has that last version of Splat working perfectly fine and I was sort of correct about that solution. It was a top of the line PC from that era and I guess as long as you don’t fry the MoBo everything else was replaceable. Because it was mothballed 8 years ago it’s still in perfect working condition. Not sure if it would survive daily usage. Therefore one can maintain time machine DAWs for possible 10- 20 year no problem. I have a 2004 Dell laptop running XP I keep to run my CD printer software. Still boots every time I need it. It has Sonar 6 and Wave Lab 4 on it.
  8. Sonar X3 was the last version to just use serial numbers. Splat requires Command Centre. Command Centre requires the server. The server is now maintained by Bandlab. As said Splat once installed using CCC is activated until that computer dies. I have a 4 core Pentium computer with Splat on it running W7 that was my main DAW from 2006- 2012 It still boots and runs because it had lots of upgrades over time and the parts are all good stuff. It has a PCI Sound Card made by Card Deluxe, they still support the ASIO driver. It has SPDIF that teams up with my Yamaha 01v. I still have that too. It was a bulletproof system that always worked. I wouldn’t want to return to that system but it is living proof that you can keep stuff running forever if you want to! It has X3 and Splat and my copies of Cubase and Wave lab 7. If I move the ilok dongle those still work too. A time Machine I call it.
  9. You must have told the uninstaller to remove stuff. Normally that doesn’t happen but- Best practices is don’t uninstall older versions. They take up very little space. The last full installer with TTS-1 was last November
  10. I do believe it’s right there in the help menu For sure it’s in the documentation which is also in the help menu. Or you can just Google - Cakewalk Keyboard Shortcut
  11. Judging by what the OP said they are using the computers audio system for everything including Cakewalk. They most certainly don’t want to use ASIO in this case. They would’ve using WASAPI. If you use WASAPI exclusive it by passes Windows audio and therefore better performance but then you can’t have Cakewalk open if you use other audio apps. So then you use WASAPI shared. I’ve never tested that if in shared mode the sound enhancements are involved when using Cakewalk because I have always disabled them. Probably depends on the computers audio system.
  12. I originally was having the crashing issue and submitted the reports. Support recommended a clean install. Since then only crashes were related to experimenting with the Cakewalk Exchange files between Next and Sonar. I submitted those and they are looking into that. But both Sonar and Next hang up on crashing for me.
  13. I noticed this happened when Sonar was crashed. It would crash but I couldn’t re open it. I would find it in Task manager way down the list. I would have to reboot computer to kill.
  14. Ya it’s too bad Noel told us in the 11th hour. I figured out how to get the sale price using the other log in. I only made a hint about it as I was not sure they would appreciate that.
  15. Worth understanding is Behringer makes 2 interfaces that don’t have proper ASIO drivers and uses Asio4all instead. I think they are the UM2 and Um22. There are well documented to not work well with Cakewalk/Sonar.
