How To Use Cakewalk by Bandlab - Tutorial For Beginners (FREE DAW)

`Transverse Audio

Learn how to use Cakewalk by Bandlab, a free DAW. This Cakewalk by Bandlab tutorial for beginners will teach you the basics of the digital audio workstation. I go over the layout including the playlist, piano roll, and mixer, as well as what most things do. I also talk about setting the DAW up so you can record at the right bit depth and sample rate, import your VST plugins, and get your samples and loops in the software too.

Previously called Sonar, this digital audio workstation was made free when it was acquired by Bandlab. Although a new company owns it, it's still the same DAW (Cakewalk Sonar Platinum), just with some updates. If you want to download Cakewalk for free, check it out here:

To open something in the multidock, select a track and then go to "Views" on the top menu of the DAW. From there you can open the piano roll, console, stepsequencer, etc. You'll have to repeat this process for each track.

God is great! It may be hard to believe when you don't, I came from the same place. It took me a while to understand and accept God. But when I did, it changed my life more than I could have imagined and I hope yours will be changed too.

Thanks for watching, I appreciate your comments and support!
