AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Just installed the cakewalk home studio. I have two major concerns (at the moment). 1. How do I keep track 1 from bleeding over to track 2 when recording onto track 2?
2. I'm just recording straight from my guitar to the computer. I have no midi anything hooked up. I just want to multi-track with each instrument on a seperate track. As it stands now, every new track I record also includes every other track that has been recorded.

Any help will be greatly appriceated.

Do you hear your other tracks while your recording each track? I dont have home studio but maybe you have to disarm(turn record off) or mute the other tracks so they dont bleed over....I could be wrong but try that.

I seem to have solved the problem by going into the Options/Audio and changing the buffer size to 350. Someone had mention going to the "What-U-Hear" setting, but I can't seem to find that setting anywhere on my computer.

I'm still confused about the Midi set-up, as I have no way of knowing how to run a midi chord to my computer (no ports will accept a midi IN.). Is there some kind of adapter I need to do this?

Boy o boy, that disc sure does send out the sparks when you microwave it for 2:45 (Individual pizza setting). Little bit of a mess to clean up, but well worth it in the satisfaction of seeing my nemesis, low these past few hundred hours, die it's horrid digital death.

I think I'm going back to cassette tapes. The fidelity sucks, but so does most of what I record anyway.

What U hear option is in the soundcard mixer (it came with the soundcard drivers). Some soundcard have drivers problems, allways record what you hear. To solve this I pan the tracks to the left, and record from the right (or viceversa).

If you soundcard don't make the midi job, you could use the sintesoft from homestudio (edirol and others).

If you get the trick, digital recording is ten times better than analog portastudio recording, it is worth efforting
