Guys I am a total noob with cakewalk. Or at the very least I am relearning it after a very long break and everything is different. I have a midi file. piano. real mess, so beautiful. Anyway. When I've opened it in cakewalk, I can immediately hit play and hear the ugly thing... But I cannot figure out how to change the notes into the VSTi harp plugin. I don't own a keyboard. Can't read music. Can play most chords on a guitar, but can't read tab, and cannot pluck, or play lead. Just basically strum. And I can't hear when I'm totally out of tune, someone always has to tell me. I can't tune my guitar without an app on my phone. I've been strumming chords on my guitar for around 25 years, really lazily, and yet I've never actually learned even one song ore created one song from the chords I do know. I played an alto sax as a freshman in high school. I think I must have learned how to read a few notes there, but seriously that was 40 years ago, so.... Yeah, gone. Anyway, for whatever reason, I keep coming back to crawl into my monitor, into audacity and cakewalk and peck out these super trashy tunes so that I can mess around with them. How is the midi file created? I'm glad you asked. I have software that will let me peck out little tunes that then save as a midi, but the controller is just my laptop keyboard. Also, hello. Nice place you have here. Everyone is impeccably dressed and gorgeous.
