I’m a new user of Cantabile, using it to play in a pop/rock band. I’m using Cantabile Solo Version 4.0 Build 4062 (x64). My setup is MIDI out from a basic keyboard (with sustain pedal), into a Focusrite Saffire 6 USB audio interface, into a Dell laptop. No ‘MIDI in’ back to the keyboard - just ‘one way’.
I’ve used Cantabile for a few practices before, with no issue. However tonight, I noticed some sounds were changing whilst I was playing. I discovered that my plugins (e.g. AIR Hybrid 3) where changing to a higher or lower setting, without me pressing anything. e.g. “28 Clean Saw Lead” changed to “29 Spirituality”. I haven’t setup anything to do this (I have heard of program changes, but never set one up; and only one song had a binding where the sustain pedal changes the master gain), so I’m not sure what could be triggering these changes?
On songs where I have multiple plugins (either playing concurrently, or with Key Ranges), I saw multiple plugins changed.
I also observed the change hapepning i.e. I double clicked the plugin to load it, and whilst playing it (and nothing touching the laptop) saw it change setting.
I couldn’t see a correlation - it happened after maybe a few seconds or a few minutes. Unplugging the sustain pedal made no difference.
It was happening on multiple songs. Closing Cantabile and reloading the song does restore the correct plugin settings. But we have a gig in 2 weeks, so I’m now a bit nervous as it’s not ideal to restart in the middle of song!
Any ideas what could be causing this? (Let me know if I need to describe the physical setup at all. I will also try to replicate the problem at home over the weekend).
Is there a way to ‘lock’ Cantabile song settings, to play in ‘read only’ mode?
