Question about Cakewalk Guitar Tracks 2 (804526011836)

1 Answer

Hearing other tracks when recording

I have an original Cakewalk GS2, I had this problem when I first loaded the program back in '01 on my old computer and Cakewalk still had customer support for GS2, but I have a new computer now and have to reconfigure everythying. When I go to record on new tracks I can't hear my previous tracks in order to play along with them. I know it's just a setting but I can't seem to find out what it is. Help would be much appreciated

I downloaded a sonar cakewalk program to my computer but there is no sound. How do i fix this?


First check your speakers with any media player. If this sounds OK then keep the volume level up/same sothat you can hear any sound from speaker. Now Check the input & output devices in sonar (Select the appropriate device). Put any audio file in a track in Sonar & check...

If you are not a regular user of Sonar then it is better to switch to another DAW which are better (at least in my openion) before you are used to Sonar.
I'd suggest "Nuendo" of Steinberg, it is highly professional, far better & far more user friendly than Sonar. I've used both...

Can't record vocals


You can use any mic you want but you have to go to the soundcard mixer and enable the source for recording from the recording properties. If you have a separate soundcard not the onboard one usually it will have it`s own mixer software so you open that up and set it to record from the microphone input if that`s where your mic is inserted. If you use the onboard sound card then go to control panel - sound and select the device you want and also set the recording source. In sonar you have to right click on the track in the left part of the screen. This brings up the properties for that track. The you select the sound card input and output for that audio track.
That shoudl solve your problem.
Of course you will get a much better result if you use a good mic plugged into a mixer or pre amp and send the source into the line in of your sound card and adjust the rest accordingly.

Me and some buddies record with sonar home studio 6 and i bought a new pc custom built for recording well our computers on tha same day and time started having problems with sonar popping and glitching...


Sounds like what is called a latency problem. You need to go into the settings in Sonar and under audio, adjust the Latency to a higher number...I don't know sonar home studio, or I would tell you the exact area to go in the menu's to adjust latency..Hope this helps!

Midi vs. Sound


Think of MIDI like the old time player pianos where you put a roll into it and the punches on the paper roll told the piano what notes to play. MIDI is a way for computers and musical instruments to communicate what is being played. When you plug your keyboard into your computer and enable it in Cakewalk, then Cakewalk records what notes you are playing on your keyboard (makes a piano roll file). Then when you tell Cakewalk to play this file back it communicates to your keyboard and says play these notes just like a person was sitting there playing these notes. The distinction here is you are recording and playing back your performance (which keys you pressed, how hard you struck the keys, how long you held the keys for sustain, etc...). No sound is actually being recorded, just the PERFORMANCE. When you play it back, the keyboard regenerates the sounds on the fly just as if you were actually sitting there performing the music again. Same thing applies to other MIDI enabled instruments (drums, guitar, saxaphone, etc...). This opens up all kinds of possibilities, you can redirect the recorded MIDI file to a completely different sound or instrument. Example... you record MIDI of you playing piano song, then you have Cakewalk play this MIDI back to your keyboard but you change the sound on your keyboard to guitar, it will play the same song, but now you will hear guitar instead of piano. Get it?

When recording live feed from various guitars I can't get the recordings to synchrinize


Sounds like you have a latency problem. This can be for a variety of reasons, something Cakewalk admits. The reason for that could be everything from processor limitations, not enough RAM, your soundcard, or simply that you need to change the latency configuration in the audio settings menu of the program. Considering that that is the cheapest fix, try changing settings first. Be sure to follor the help information in Cakewalk - they can be a little confusing for Cakewalk (I have no idea why they can't seem to explain their programs after all these years) but you will be able to figure out what settings are right for you.

My guess is that when you record, you are listening to the previously recorded track, and playing to it. Then when you play it all back as a mix, they are not in sync as when you were recording them.

If that is not the problem, plesae explain further. You are able to monitor your previously recorded tracks, right? Not just playing each track "blind" and trying to have them match? Hope not. That is rarely possible - if at all.

If you are monitoring your prerecorded tracks while recording on top of them and it sounds different when you play it back, it's definitely latency.
