  2. I just found your series on Cakewalk. Well done, clear and concise. It is helping me find and learn what I want to know. Narration rate is ok, but video examples are sometimes a little too fast to follow visually without a pause and replay. I suggest you drop the repeated phrase "If you don't know what that is…." It sounds condescending. Thanks for considering.

  3. Hi, I am total newbie like not known to a single thing of music production but I am just started your series and it has helped me a lot I hope by the end of series I will be able to understand the software and make music. Big thanks for your efforts.

  4. yo shoutout for telling ppl to drink water hydrate or diedrate

  5. This is an awesome tutorial, big thank you for it, though I can't see a lecture on how to mix and master. Would it be possible for you to do this tutorial or is it somewhere, where I can't see it haha?

  6. How long does it take to download?

  7. I'm a very begginer and this so helpful brother . Thank you for your great work .

  8. I am new to Cakewalk and just installed. But when I click on preferences in Edit Menu , nothing opens up. Why? How do I set locations for plugins?

  9. Hi, and thank you so much for making these videos. I recorded my singing with Cakewalk some 15 years ago. Now I have a different laptop so I downloaded the free basic version of Cakewalk but I can't figure out how to keep adding singing on top of something I already recorded. I only want to record my voice. In short – I wish to record myself singing. Then again press RECORD and add more singing and again and again. I don't know what I'm doing wrong because I every time I try to do that, it deletes the original singing and replaces it with the new instead of adding more layers. Could I please ask you to refer me to a tutorial video where you explain it or would you please let me know where to activate that particular function? Thank you so much in advance and for your time.

  10. This is a very helpful tutorial. Thank you for your nice and clean videos
