Cakewalk Pro Audio V9.03 – Multi Track Recording Studio.zip Download
add-in plugins are generally a good way of unlocking much of cakewalk’s potential for new users, particularly as a number of the pro audio plugins can be installed in new users’ accounts, rather than forcing them to be installed with a particular version of the software. fracture, for example, allows you to create and manipulate complex fractal shapes in real time using your mouse, and can be used to create a wide range of different visuals and sounds. fracture is one of the most powerful plugins available, and the interface is intuitive and straightforward. it’s also possible to edit the fractal in layers, and to save your creations as a.wav,.ogg or.mp3 file. you can also save a preset fractal shape as an.mef file, which is a bit of a gimmick, but can be useful for creating patterns without having to worry about drawing things manually.
all of the pro audio plugins are well thought out, and provide a good range of functions. the new break plugin, for example, allows you to break up a midi note into ‘breaths’. you can also control the length of time a note has to be held before it will break. break provides a range of preset patterns, some of which are included in the default save folder. it also allows you to save a break and use it later. you can also save beats and bpm rates, and create your own breaks in the same way that you create styles for the other pro audio plugins. midi data can be exported in a variety of formats, including.wav,.mp3 and.mid, and can be assigned to a different track if you wish.
the two most important new features for any cakewalk user are the midi editor, which allows you to create and edit midi data, and the midi track, which enables you to analyse, edit and add midi data to a track. the midi editor has been improved in many ways, and provides many options, including the ability to view midi data in realtime. track creation is straightforward, and you can assign midi data to a new track, modify the track tempo, or even delete a track entirely. when you’re happy with your track, you can save it, or send it to your soundcard or to your hard disk via your midi interface.
Everything else is the same as in Cakewalk 8.0.4, including multi-tasking: all tracks can be recorded to the same WAV or AIFF file at the same time, either independently or together, and in any order, with no need to save your project.
The Multi-track mixing environment in Cakewalk 9 is very powerful and versatile. You can mix and equalise using any number of tracks, you can automate effects with different parameters on different tracks, and you can record and play back audio clips using audio tracks. So what’s not to like?
All of these facilities are available from the Multi Track Editor – however, there is only one track per view (where there were previously two), the session view is now a single track, and there are no mixer panning controls. There is no need to setup instruments on a track; rather, all instruments sit in their own sequencer window – which can be useful for multi-tracking and the like. These instruments can be tracked in multitrack mode to produce cross-effects and background vocals; they can also be soloed, when the session is running in single-track mode.
The one minor drawback is that if you’re not using the Multi-track editor, you only have one single channel view, and this means that you can only have one audio track at once – therefore, you can’t edit two instruments at once, or hold playback on both at the same time (ie. if you’re soloing on track 1, you can’t play on the same track as track 2 is playing).
If you’re used to keyboard-based multitrack mixing, this might take some getting used to – this is a MIDI track after all, and the VST instruments provided by Cakewalk are limited in comparison to the Power VST in Cakewalk 8.
