    Cakewalk Revived?

    Yes me too, but I now don't have to go through the arduous process of migrating old projects from Sonar to Samplitude. Not sure if I will go back to using Sonar regularly now. I'll have to see how things go.

    Vocal Comping [SOLVED]

    Yea the takes don't need to be the same length. I have comped freely without looping in the same way Larry wants to and it works fine. I didn't know about the filtering. That's a useful feature. Comping in Samp is very good, but my big complaint is that there is no easy way to preview the comp with other tracks playing too. In Sonar you could use "Dim Solo" so you could hear the comp in context with the other tracks for checking timing issues or intonation problems or just to see how it fits. I'm sure the first time I comped in Samp I was able to hear the other tracks, but last time I did it I had to setup some fiddly monitoring to do it.
  3. Well, it's the CSS that seems to be weird. I am seeing your replies as bold, yet your last reply is in a < p > tag so it shouldn't be rendered as bold. I am seeing my text in the editor as bold yet bold it turned off. I see all the post links as bold even if I have read them. However, I now see a black dot next to any I haven't yet read and I don't remember seeing that black dot before. So it is registering what I have and haven't read. I am pretty sure I haven't got any accessibility settings on, but that is a good point and I do have a kitten which just loves running all over my mixing desk and computer keyboard whenever I'm not looking! Nope just checked and no accessibility enabled - other websites are fine. I guess I'll keep scratching my head over this one.
  4. Done some more testing. Tried marking site as read - seems to have no effect. The text remains bold so all posts show up as new. I logged in with Edge and everything was fine. It's as though Chrome is formatting link text and text in the post editor as bold. Any reason anyone can think of why it would do that?
  5. Thanks Terry. Yes, it is very odd. I have now deleted every single magix* cookie and local storage and still have the problem. So it can't be a cookie issue. Damn, it's making the forum virtually unusable!
  6. I was browsing the forum the other day and noticed that all threads were marked as unread. I then noticed that I had been logged out. So I logged in and still old posts were marked as unread. Furthermore, if I viewed a thread then went back to the thread lists it was still marked as unread. So I deleted all cookies for domain support2.magix.net, restarted the browser (Chrome) and logged into the forum. Same issue still. I am also noticing that the text I am typing here is displaying as bold italic and highlighting it and clicking B removes the italics and clicking I remove the bold. This is all very odd. I guess the Invision software was recently updated and something has gone wrong on the forum or with my browser as a result. Has anyone else noticed similar problems?
  7. Bob, actually I have this weird suspicion that it has already been sold. Not the Cakewalk brand, but the Sonar source code - to Microsoft. This strange hypothesis is based on the fact that Microsoft are ramping up their efforts to take on the Apple market. The creator's update was the start. It turns out MS are now developing a DAW that will be for Windows what Logic is for Mac. Recently Cakewalk and MS were working very closely together in the development of the Surface and on other stuff right up until the closure announcement. Reading between the lines, MS's DAW will be intended to push the DAW technology forward rather than just release yet another DAW, so this one sounds very ambitious. In an ad for DSP developers, they used the phrase "multidimensional audio production". It seems to me that MS's best plan would be to buy the code for an existing, established and proven DAW and build upon it. The best fit would obviously be a Windows only DAW - the porting of Sonar over to Mac was suddenly halted just before Cakewalk was closed. With Gibson being in such a financial pickle MS could have approached them with a tempting offer to shut down Cakewalk and sell MS the intellectual property for a good price. This would give MS a springboard on which to develop an advanced DAW with a bundle of VSTi's and VSTs to package with it saving them a lot of time and expense. It is anticipated that a light version will be bundled with Windows kind of Garage Band style. It will no longer be Sonar so there will be no ties to the lifetime updates, but all existing Sonar customers are already MS Windows customers so no custom is lost.
  8. Dan, while I am no fan of Gibson and even less of one after this Sonar kill off, they have done what businesses do every day and they don't owe us anything. The lifetime updates were not for your lifetime but for the lifetime of the product. We did get updates for the lifetime of the product. It's just that its lifetime wasn't as long as we hoped for. Those who paid monthly and didn't complete their year of payments have had their payments canceled and Sonar fully unlocked to them. There are no grounds for a refund. Unfortunately, everything Gibson has done is completely legitimate in the business world.
  9. \0/ Yea I think that's fairly apt too! You do realize that fish-finders use sonar?

    Happy New Year

    Happy new year! No music for me today. I have to go and do some more drinking in a moment.
  11. Arther Daily, we have already warned them of the impending forum riots and cake chucking

    ^^^ That up there ..... the Chat thing

    It's a feature built into the forum software that has been disabled in this forum for some reason.
  14. My desk uses the Mackie protocol and I have been very impressed with Samp's programming system. I haven't found any other DAW yet that allows so much precise programming of assignments and having spent a pretty long time crafting the settings from scratch and saving them as a preset, my desk now has far more functions than it was ever designed for with other DAWs - it was never designed for implementation with Samplitude!

    Question for Sonar Refugees

    Hi Posercomposer, after the Sonar debacle I was planning on moving to Cubase, but there was some issue with my graphics card and the Cubase GUI in the demo - it was ridiculously slow. I ended up buying Studio One as a kind of last resort. Then the crazy Samplitude deal came along and I bought that mostly for SpectralLayers. However, after installing Samplitude and using it for a "learning project" that became a good song, I have fallen for it! It is on a par with Sonar if not better in some ways. I have hardly touched S1 because as soon as I need to do anything slightly off the beaten track with S1 I run into a wall, whereas with Samplitude I can always find a way. In other words, S1 forces you to work to its workflow, but Samplitude (like Sonar) molds its self to your workflow. I really think in hindsight, after buying Studio One, that it is an overhyped bit of software like PT has been for a long time. It's all marketing, whereas what I need is something that can actually deliver. The marketing behind Samplitude seems to be crap in comparison but it can deliver and seems to be a very underestimated piece of software. That's why I am here now.
