Hi fellow recorders, do any of you know how i make 7 tracks in cakewalk, one for each of my drum mics? I have tried but it seems like it only takes input 1, 3, 5 and 7  from my audio interface?

^ This.

CbB exposes the names that your audio interface gives it, and that's usually named in stereo pairs, so what you end up with is weird names that seem to skip numbers.

What it really is:

Input 1  is really 1 (left) and 2 (right)
Input 2 is really 3 (left) and 4 (right)
etc.

So look at your input list and you'll able to work out the "missing" channels. What you might find helpful is going into Preferences > Audio > Devices and checking Use Friendly Names to Represent Audio Drivers and going up and double clicking each input and naming it something a little more sensible  (eg: the first channel of my interface is exposed as US-16x08 ASIO IN 1, the second is US-16x08 ASIO IN 3 etc.  and what I've done is renamed the first one In-1L/2R and the second one In-3L/4R, etc. MUCH easier to read and keep track of.)

@Lord TimThank you for spelling out what I was not awake enough to  explain or to make cut-and-paste screen shots!
