When i start cakewalk bandlab version and the screen comes up to select new project, recent project etc,
If I pick new project nothing comes up , it does not have the pre select like the other sonar home studio has like Basic.cwt or 4-track.cwt.

Is the bandlab version supposed to show this ?.

Thanks but wow that's a bit beyond me, I couldn't get the files to d/load ?.

Do you think deleting and reinstalling cakewalk would work or would I lose saved songs etc.

The templates usually live wherever you have your Cakewalk Content\Cakewalk Core\ Project Templates and/or Track Templates. You need to be sure your installation is pointing to where these are so in Preferences under File Locations ensure you are pointing to the correct folder location.

Get to Preferences by pressing The letter P. Ensure you have the Advanced button pressed. Then go to File - Folder Locations.

If you have installed Cakewalk in a different place maybe the folder locations are still at the default of the C drive. (In my case most of this stuff points to my music files drive but you must set the file locations in Preferences)

Just a thought

Tony

If nothing else you should be able to point Cakewalk to the Sonar Templates or simply copy them To C:\Cakewalk Content\Cakewalk Core\ Project Templates . Or whatever drive your Cakewalk is on. They are the same as far as I know. I still use templates I created years ago.

Beatmaster,

I'm glad Tony got you straightened out.

Teunis,

Thanks for diving in and providing the additional information. It always helps to have more than one viewpoint when trying to figure out a computer program.

Somebody on the Cakewalk forum accidentally deleted the default templates. I archived them into a zip file and uploaded the file to the cloud and provide a link to the file. I never removed the file so I was able to quickly generate a new link for you.

The meat of the Cakewalk forum thread is there are at least two copies of the default project files on your computer system. By default Cakewalk program files install at one location, C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\Cakewalk Core, I think. The program copies the sub folders and files to another location defined in the program's preferences file location window.

So a master copy of almost all Cakewalk files are available. This is good to know when accidents happen.

PG Music News
RealBand® Turns 12!

RealBand® for Windows® is your all-in-one audio workstation and accompaniment program, and if you've purchased a copy of Band-in-a-Box® for Windows in the last decade, it's been included in your purchase!

We released RealBand in July 2008, along with Band-in-a-Box® 2008.5.

"RealBand brings a new level of ease and flexibility to anyone creating recordings. Record your own tracks, type in the chords, pick a style, and then add any MIDI or audio (Real) tracks to follow your chords - all in a single program. For example, type in chords to your song, generate a RealDrums track, record in your guitar and vocal parts. Then put on your 'arranger' hat and have some fun automatically adding RealTracks - maybe a guitar solo, or pedal steel background for the bridge."

We hope everyone enjoys using RealBand, which combines some great features from our PowerTracks Pro Audio program with the powerful accompaniment features from Band-in-a-Box®!

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Spanish for Windows is Here!

¡Hay más de 50 nuevas características en Band-in-a-Box® 2020! Hay mejoras en RealTracks (RealTracks Vocal de Sonido más Suave, RealTracks Engrosamiento, RealTracks "Find-a-Sub" y MultiRiffs). La mayoría de los RealDrums ahora tienen RealCharts (con notación de batería precisa). Hay un nuevo navegador de Artistas RealTracks para encontrar información / biografías / enlaces / listas de RealTracks en todos los artistas. Un nuevo Navegador de Funciones permite al usuario nuevo u "olvidadizo" encontrar y usar fácilmente la mayoría de las funciones / teclas de acceso rápido / documentos desde una sola ventana. Ecualizar Tempo permite cambiar una canción de rubato grabada a un tempo fijo. Tiempo de audio mejorado / estiramiento de tono (Elastique) incluido. Hay mejoras en el Selector de Canciones, Bajo/Batería o Batería solo Auto-Intros, 3.400 títulos añadidos, mejoras MusicXML, guitarra para "Zurdos" y "Vista de estudiante", mejoras de Arrastrar y Soltar, Ventana Múltiple del Mago del Acorde de Audio y mucho más!
