In the Special Edition 1, I have the paino playing in ms. 1. The first note is silent, the rest play. The notes are 1/8 notes in a moderate tempo. It's a single line, no chords or other piano notes are playing, such as octaves, counterpoint etc. What could be causing this? 

Thank you,

Michael

Hello Michael, 

Which OS, which DAW, which version of the Synchron Pianos are you using?
If you move the MIDI Event, when does it start playing?

Best,
Paul

Hi Paul, sorry I was so unimformative, but it was late and I had just spent 2 hours trying to get Cakewalk to open, and I guess I was just too tired to pose a proper question.

Anyway, so the Daw is Cakewalk, OS is windows 7, and I'm not using Synchron, this is the old edition of SPE 1, and I'm using it on Vepro. Although sometimes I use Vienna Player if Vepro is acting up. I have the first edition of Vepro 7. Maybe I should update? I say maybe because, it was an update to Cakewalk's latest version that caused me all the problems last night. I have it working now on an older version.

I have not ugraded Windows 7 because I don't want to use windows 10 (8 was a joke). I plan to use windows 7 indefinitely. I know this could cause me problems, but if it does I will just stay with older versions of my various softwares so everything will still work.

Thanks, Micahel

Edit: I will try moving the midi event to see if that helps (good idea, I should have thought of it but as I said it was late).

I can get the note to play if I move it as follows: Cakewalk's time format is like this: 1:00:000. If I move the note to 1:00:050, it will play (or something like that; I'm not at my music computer at the moment but you get the idea. I found the earliest time it would play). you can notice that the note is late, but it's hidden anyway in the mix of strings.

Hi Michael, 

Could be a good idea to leave the first bar(s) of your arrangement free, to let your DAW come up to speed. 

Many composers start at 4 or 8 bars anyway, in case they want to quickly add something at the start. 

Best,
Paul

I have thought of doing that Paul, but it messes with my lists of tempo and meter, which I make to facilitate transfer from one medium to another, like from a DAW to notation software. Of course, I can solve that by just adding 1 or 2 etc to all the values. We all have our little quirks...

But I may have to do this in some cases. If only DAWS let you re-order the numbering, that wopuld be a great help. I'll ask the Cakewalk devs about it. Then I could do as you say, and my piece would still start with ms. 1.
