First Song With Cakewalk!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

My fist project with Cakewalk.  It's nothing special, just threw some tracks together.  This is more of a practice piece for me to familiarize myself with Cakewalks UI.  I used several included VST's.  The drum track was a preset loop that I made some edits too, and added a quick intro.  Other VST's used were Xpand!2, SI EPiano, SoniVox Classic Bass.  I initially wanted to do a project using only what comes with Cakewalk, but theTTS-1 doesn't work properly for me (even after the program reinstall), so I used Xpand!2 in place of it.  I hope the mix came out ok.  I used Behringer Desktop Monitor Speakers.   Be gentle..., it's a first mix.., really rough.  I need to EQ the Electric Piano.  The SI EPiano is nice, but it can get a little muddy on the bottom end.

Thanks!  This is a rough mix I put together as a practice piece for learning Cakewalks UI.  I’m still going to tinker with it as it’s still pretty rough around the edges.

Nope, not my first rodeo.  Been playing for almost 40 years now.

This is a nice instrumental.  It's a good way to learn CW (that's how I did it).  Let's hear some more rodeo music!

Thx everyone.., I find doing compositions like this are a great way to learn a DAW.  Laying the tracks was the easy part, took only a few minutes.  95% of the time spent on this was used to get familiar with the piano roll, effects, and other editing options.  I did learn my Behringer monitors suck after listening to the comp through other sources after the final mix LOL.  They completely hid the muddy part of the EP track.

Nice song.  It needs vocals, so you might take Jesse up on the offer!  I was expecting Huey Lewis to break in at any moment!

Nice one.  Welcome to the forum! Very tasteful all the way through. Mix-wise, maybe bass up a tad. I listened on headphones but could still have used more root. 

Your tune has a cool laidback triplet swing feel. Goes down easy!

cheers,

-Tom
