    I think I get it but as noted it needs some additional ear candy to keep ones attention, I got distracted sorry.

    The mix sounds good here but....

    Buy what? ))
    Sorry, I don't understand what do you mean?

    The attention to detail on note choice, rhythm, and composition in general paid off.  It shows.  It's an excellent soundscape.


    Jeff, thank you or the listening and feedback! I try to make this track with crystal sound 🙌

    Gives me a peaceful and relaxed feeling.
    Like Jack mentioned it could use something more melodic on top.
    Dialing up the reverb a little (or a lot) would ramp up the cosmic component, as would a bit of delay effects.
    Nice job on this.

    Hello, Bjorn!

    It's a good idea about something more melodic on top!

    Thank you for the comment and listening!

    I liked it, very wooooshy, and some great panning in your mix! Lots going on but the elements don't get lost in each other.

    Drums are pretty minimal, almost as if they are suggesting the beat rather than stating it. It's a mixing choice, sounds good but I found myself wanting a "drums up" section. The kick is of course the most present element, but maybe getting the snare/hi hats more prominent, at least in parts, could be an idea to add dynamics to the piece.

    A stellar mix that certainly fits the chill zone. Nice job!



    Wow, how well you described everything, Tom!

    Interesting drum idea, thanks a lot!!

    It seems to me that I went too far with the kick (( It seems that while working on the track, after mixing and production, the sound of the tracks is completely different (((

    The idea of making the snare/hi-hats more visible is very cool, I appreciate it!Thanks again for your attention to my music, Tom!

    Wish you all the best!

  5. Hello there!

    Like anyone at this forum - I'm waiting for any news about Cakewalk Next and Sonar. Especially about Cakewalk Sonar.

    A month has already passed since the publication of the news about it. As far as I'm aware, no one has received the beta yet.

    Just wondering - when will there be more news, updates and some other cookies? 😁

    @Jesse Jost @Noel Borthwick We are waiting for something!

    It is interesting to us! Everywhere something is updated, and we here just sit and wait 😤 We are bored! We feel abandoned! 😥

    Give us some hype and mushrooms, some fun stuff! 🔥

    I couldn't listen to this - on Soundcloud it said this track is not available in South Africa??


    Hi! Very interesting... track should be available in South Africa! Maybe something happened with the Soundcloud's settings?

    You can listen my tracks on spotify, apple, amazon etc - if you use it 🙌

    wonderful sounds.needs a voice or synth to play some melodies.jack

    Good idea! Thank you for the  listening!

  8. I have been immersed in the creative process for a long time, working on a new composition in a new for me style of Lounge, Lo-fi & Chillout.

    This track is a unique combination of soft vinyl sound, cozy piano, bass guitar and percussion instruments that add rhythm and dynamics to the music. Each instrument was carefully selected and tuned to create a harmonious and heartfelt sound.

    I put a lot of time and energy into this composition. I spent months reworking the tune numerous times, listening to it on different audio systems and headphones to achieve the perfect balance and accentuation of each instrument.

    Every note, every chord, and every rhythm in this composition was designed with special attention to detail. I strived to create an atmosphere in which you can relax, enjoy pleasant melodies, and take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

    I am now ready to share this song with you ❤ ❤

    Please listen to it and enjoy the music, which is designed to create peace and immersion in your thoughts.

    I always appreciate your opinion and feedback. Please share your impressions of the track in the comments. Your feedback will help me improve and grow in my writing.

    Thank you for sticking with me and sharing this musical journey. I hope this composition gives you moments of peace and inspiration.

    I can't wait to hear what you think of the composition and cover 😋

    Your comments will help me better understand how my music affects my listeners and inspire me to keep creating ❤

  9. Colleagues, if I understand info from the new site:

    1. Cakewalk Next is the desktop version of the browser version of Bandlab
    2. Cakewalk Sonar is a continuation of Cakewalk by Bandlab.

    I think that the paid version and monetization are a logical continuation of the free product. Developing a good product costs money, and someone has to pay for it.
    It is clear that the new product will be further developed.

    I think it's a very cool start! Good marketing)))
    The product is evolving, and it's cool!

    I want to be a beta tester!!!
    @Jesse Jost
    I want to join the team as a project / product manager! I sent you a private message.

  10. Dear colleagues, I need your advice!

    About a week ago I bought a new speakers M-Audio BX4 for comparison and maybe changing my Edifier r1280t.

    I want to choose near field acoustics for listening and mixing.  And now I feel embarrassed and don't know what to choose. 

    Edifier sound somehow cleaner and juicier on high, they have a front location bass reflex.  Their low frequencies already sound from about 50 Hz, judging by the amplitude frequency response. 

    M-Audio is more powerful and bassier, they have a more even amplitude frequency response, although there is a hump somewhere at 100 Hz, but the manufacturer claims that they have a low range threshold from 69 Hz.

    What do you recommend for choosing?

  11. Colleagues, I want to know if you have encountered a similar problem, and if so, how did you solve it?

    While working on a project, I change some volume or pan values of the VST instrument (Stylus RMX at the moment) or plug-ins in the ProChannel. And the sound of the drums or other VST seems to be interrupted, and then starts again. I have to stop playback and listen again.

    The project is "heavy", the CWP file occupies almost 1 GB...

    Computer Core i5, 10th generation, 16 GB of RAM, SSD disk and M-Audio Air 8 sound card.

    I like the historic audio and the song certainly has a strong beat. After a while I kind of wanted to hear more variation in the beat and maybe another lead synth on top. Well, just my opinion.
    Enjoyed the listen.

    Bjorn, thank you for the interesting comment!

    I agree with your opinion about more variation in the beat and maybe another lead synth on top! It's very useful idea! I'll try to do it in the next composition!

    Have a good day! 💫

    Excellent mix, some great sounds - really enjoyed this

    cool stuff


    Nigel, thank you sincerely for your feedback! Glad you liked the mix and sounds! All the best to you!

    3 months well spent. The sounds/instruments are very good choices. The mix sounds good over here. One of my songs is about a mandatory evacuation I had to do due to a nearby large wildfire threatening my area. I used actual helicopter sounds, some clips from news broadcasts etc. So I think including news and reality clips in a song is a good way to add to the authenticity and add to its meaning as you did here. Good job.

    Thank you very much for your feedback! I'm glad you liked the track! I agree that voices and effects bring music add to the authenticity!
    Have a nice day!

  15. This remix is dedicated to the feat of the first cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, who on April 12, 1961 did the impossible 🚀

    The composition contains voices from the mission control center, Yuri Gagarin and the news about the flight.

    I calibrated each instrument in terms of sound in accordance with the original track. In total, the work on the track took about three months.
    This is probably one of my coolest compositions at the moment.
    Cosmic, symphonic, mind-blowing

    And I also dedicate this composition to Ray Lynch himself, who is already 80 years old 🔥

    just wondering, is Cakewalk still under development? Are you guys still working on it? 

    It's silent and while normally we would see a new version every 3 months now there is nothing new since 5+ months and no early access.

    Holger, I perfectly understand you!

    Updates are constant and predictable in the all DAWs, but here is a silence.

    But let me clarify, what do you really need? What do you lack for creativity and inspiration? Next update? New interface? Some cool plugins?

    I would like to share my experience.

    I also sometimes catch myself thinking that I want something totally new 😂 And I also think that new cool monitors or a top midi keyboard will help me.
    At times like these, I ask myself:
    - When I worked with the 6th or 7th version of Cakewalk Sonar about 15 years ago, did I need updates?
    - All this abundance of plug-ins and synthesizers - do I really need it?
    - Any super-new features of Cakewalk or any other DAW - will help me write a musical masterpiece?

    My intuition tells me "no".

    It's been a bit sketchy for me, but if you have Melodyne already you can just drag the wav clip to a MIDI track and it should convert to MIDI. Just depends on how complex the part is if editing will be needed.

    Go to Help>Documentation>Using Regional FX>Melodyne>Using Melodyne>See:To convert audio to MIDI.

    Thank you very much!

    The problem is solved!!! I found the old version of the project on an another disk! 🔥
