Looking for the blog on my June travels to Between the Waves, GearFest, and Summer NAMM linked to from other sites? It's in the new "Semi-Blog" page on the site. 

Now that what used to be Sonar has a new name—Cakewalk by BandLab—and is available as a free download from BandLab.com, the program has picked up a flood of new users. This new PDF book combines the previous two books on Sonar tips, removes material not relevant to the new program, and now offers over 400 pages of innovative, practical tips and techniques.


The chapters are: Advanced Workflow Techniques, Patch Points and Synth Recording, Signal Processing and DSP, FX Chains, MIDI, Step Sequencing/Beats/Percussion, Loops, Audiosnap, Automation, Control Surfaces, Tempo and Pitch-Shifting, Recording Techniques, Colorization, Windows Tips, and there are also two appendices—Digital Audio Basics, and How to Be a Power User.

For the complete contents, go to The Huge Book of Cakewalk by BandLab Tips landing page on Reverb.com, click on the strip below the cover, then click on the magnifying glass.


This book isn’t just a rewrite of the manual—but dives really deep into the program for techniques, most of them undocumented, that let anyone get the most out of Cakewalk by BandLab.
