Is there a way we can play Cakewalk instantly?

Recommended Posts

I doubt there's any one DAW that includes different versions from rookie-level to pro?

There used to be three different versions of Cakewalk/SONAR, but the basic recording techniques and procedures were exactly the same in all of them. 

In my opinion the basics of recording and using VSTs are still practically the same in all DAWs. Then again, there are audio editors, like Audacity, that are  quite straightforward to use, but are actually not meant for recording and real studio tasks.

Only disagreement I have is that if you don't have an audio interface that supports ASIO, you need to get one. Stay away from ASIO4ALL. It tends to be problematic.

You said, "Only disagreement I have is that if you don't have an audio interface that supports ASIO, you need to get one. Stay away from ASIO4ALL. It tends to be problematic."

Are you saying that Cakewalk doesn't have an audio interface that supports ASIO,

or that Soundtrap.com doesn't have one?

 

Thanks

I think you need to do some research here.

Google DAW and audio device / audio interface and how to use them.

Decide on the type of music you want to make and with what.

Soundtrap is not a DAW. Cakewalk is. To learn how to use Cakewalk takes time, there is a learning curve, patience is a virtue, (as with every DAW).

I have not used Soundtrap but the description at the Microsoft store

Quote

Make music online. Record instruments, vocals and use loops. Collaborate and create music with friends from anywhere.

sounds more like BandLab and Cakewalk by BandLab.

I found this series in the Tutorials forum, This seems to cover everything starting from Audio and Midi. I watched most of the first 5 and I thought they were easy to follow . Looks like John, the author, is still working on a them.

Did you even watch the video?

An audio interface is a piece of hardware. It is where sound goes into and out of the computer.

Cakewalk is a Daw only. An audio interface has Asio driver.

Like Jeremy mentioned I recommend starting with the "Basic" workspace that looks like this. This has the minimal set of tools you would need in a DAW. As you need more you can switch the workspace to advanced or another preset.
