  1. When I record a new audio track it also picks up everything I've previously recorded as well. So not only is it recording what I'm currently doing it's also recording every other track I've made in that project. Even worse still, you can barely hear what I'm playing because it gets drowned out by the previously recorded tracks. How do I fix it so it only records what I'm doing? Not looking for a massive discussion that lasts days just looking for simple instructions on what settings I need to change in order to fix the problem.
  2. I don't know why you would assume that if I'm honest, an audio interface is fundamental for home recording lol
  3. Ah okay interesting, thank you very much. So I should lower the reverb and compression, and change the EQ?
  4. I have a Soundcraft Notepad 8FX audio interface, so what driver mode settings would be best? Following your video I changed it to WASAPI shared, which sounded better but when I record audio tracks there's a delay. How do I fix the delay?
  5. For me the chords sound more aggressive than they do in cakewalk, the keys sound like they're being pressed a lot harder. Which was a problem I had before before so I drastically lowered the velocity, however that didn't make much of a difference. This is the first wave file I've exported from cakewalk, so I don't have any others.
  6. In audio playback and recording my driver mode was ASIO, but I changed it to WASAPI Shared following your video. I'm still not 100% certain what on board audio is exactly, however I went through all of my settings and made sure they were the same as your screenshots.
  7. @Nigel Mackay @John Vere I played it through VLC and unfortunately it still didn't sound right. So I clicked on Open Volume Mixer to make sure it was the same as cakewalk, and it was. I then played it on Audacity and that also didn't sound right. So I must be exporting it incorrectly?
  8. Oh! My bad haha I watched the video and followed all the steps, it still doesn’t sound right when I export it as a WAV file. So I need to do further editing in Audacity to correct it?
  9. Sigh..when I go to the audio playback and recording tab it says “(Close all projects to edit)” beside Driver mode. And no, I’m not kidding. Cakewalk has just told me to close the project so I can edit the settings...which I can only do if the project is open😂 Just got to laugh about it at this point, whatever higher force is up there really doesn’t want me to finish this song 😂
  10. I messed around with the EQ settings on Groove Music and unfortunately it didn't really fix the issue. It isn't just Groove Music it sounds that way on either, I tried listening to it on Windows media player and it was the same thing. Will I have to remix the entire song or will it sound the way it should once it's on SoundCloud/Spotify?
  11. Thanks this definitely narrowed down the problem. When I imported the exported WAV into cakewalk it sounded the same as the project. So the problem must lie in the playback. How can I remedy this?
