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.

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows

Make sure to check out the latest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows review from Sound-Guy (Dennis) at www.gearslutz.com: click here.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
-Sound-Guy, www.gearslutz.com

How I Use Band-in-a-Box® to Create Shots/Chops

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 Mac Update Ready!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

If you're still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019, make sure you download the latest patch update (b324) for an updated splash screen (macOS 10.12 and 10.13 users), smoother Song Titles dialog, access to your (purchased) RealTracks Set 328, and we've corrected the reported issue with opening songs from older versions of Band-in-a-Box in the 2019 version.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

Band-in-a-Box® - My New Favorite Thing

Did you know we have a My Favorite Things forum? We encourage you to share your favorite features in Band-in-a-Box and RealBand there, along with what features you use the most and why - we LOVE getting feedback!

Like the latest post from Tangmo:

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!

Thanks Tangmo!
