Dimension Pro Multisample Relocation

I moved my Dimension Pro Multisamples to another drive and now DP can't find them.
How do I reconnect DP to the multisamples in their new location?

you have to dig into the registry.  There are threads about how exactly to do this - do a search.

The threads I found do not work.
I wish TweakDimension was still available but apparently it is not.

Hi Dave,

On Windows, the Dimension family of synthesizers looks at a main product key to pull in configuration information about itself. Configuration options may tell it where to locate audio files, resource files, Sinc settings, etc. Each edition has these keys in different places:

For 32-bit versions of the instrument on 32-bit Windows they should be in:

Dimension (Project5)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cakewalk Music Software\Dimension

Dimension LE (1.0 - 1.2)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cakewalk Music Software\Dimension LE

Dimension LE (1.5)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cakewalk Music Software\dple

Dimension Pro (1.0 - 1.2)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cakewalk Music Software\Dimension Pro

Dimension Pro (1.5)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cakewalk Music Software\dp



For 32-bit versions of the instrument on 64-bit versions of Windows they should be in a slightly altered location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432\Cakewalk Music Software\ ...

For 64-bit versions of the instrument on 64-bit versions of Windows they should be in the expected location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Cakewalk Music Software\ ...



You may use the Windows Registry Editor (regedit.exe) to locate and manipulate these keys if necessary.


As for tweakDimension, I wrote that program a long time ago specifically for the original Dimension that was only available with Project5. It was updated when Dimension Pro 1.0 was released, but never udpated for any other versions (DimPro LE, DimPro 1.2, DimPro 1.5) nor for 64bit versions of the instrument running on 64bit versions of Windows. It is still available at the Project5 User site, but it may not work for you if you're running 64-bit versions of the instruments or versions later than 1.0.  You will most likely need to edit the registry directly.

In version 1.5 you have to edit the multisamples location in the 'dp' folder not the 'Dimension Pro' folder.
I didn't notice the dp folder so I was editing the Dimension Pro one.
Everything works perfect now.

I would not expect Cakewalk support will answer your email, both MC6 and DPro are out of support. The last time I received a similar error was with Cakewalk Sound Center. I reinstalled the plug-in and it seemed to fix the problem.
 
It is not a good idea to append unrelated posts to an existing thread. Next time please create a new thread.
