  1. Thanks Noel and azslow3. My email notification got buried in spam, and I just found these responses. Lots to learn, but it's a fun process. Thanks!
  2. How do people get their tracks in sync if it was not recorded with cakewalk? Like, if someone used other recording devices, and the timecodes were not the same... how would they go about putting them together in cakewalk... or is that not what this program is intended for? This is the only other audio software I am familiar with - https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve/fairlight Maybe it's a whole different animal than cakewalk?
  3. Thank you. That does look helpful. I'm cheap and broke though, so I'll spend hours aligning it manually, lol.
  4. Thanks! I think the crossfade is what I need. Now to figure out how to get rid of a poorly placed crossfade and start over. Thanks for the page number... I have some reading to do, lol. I have not considered a wave editing software or doing that. I'll have to learn what that all means... I'm pretty clueless, sorry.
  5. Hi there... I have searched the internet, and browsed through the manual. I think the terms I am looking for are not the cakewalk terms (or anyone's) ? Or I'm just really bad at searching. I am not big into audio and don't know much, but I'd like to learn more. I have been using Davinci Resolve's Fairlight page to edit the audio for videos, but it kept crashing. Two things I could do easily in Fairlight are joining the two audio clips from a song that my camera split, and syncing two audio sources together by waveform. There is an audible click when I put the split clips from my camera together in cakewalk. (It could possibly be my camera's fault, but that's never happened before, or I'm doing something wrong in cakewalk.) And if I want to sync external audio to my camera's audio, I can do it with a few mouse clicks in fairlight which analyzes the waveforms and puts the clips in sync. I have no idea how to do that in cakewalk. I'm guessing it has something to do with the audio snap, but when I tried to follow instructions from the manual it didn't help. If that's where it's at, I'd be happy with just a confirmation on that, and I'll try harder. I'm hoping there's something automated in cakewalk, because I suck at doing it manually. Sorry for the probably dumb questions. When I search for things, a lot of the results don't make sense to me when I'm working with a live performance all recorded at the same time with a couple mics. (What would that be called in the audio world?) P.S. I'm not mixing anything, but I'm really curious... How do you lay down live recordings in a mix and have them in sync with everything? I mean, what's the term I should search for to understand how people do this?
