To record the sound of the music create an audio track, perform a mixdown and burn the wave/mp3 to CD.

To record the music notation you're creating create a Cakewalk BUNdle file I believe which contains everything.

There's also a .WRK file but Ive never used this option

I beleive .wrk is a compatible file with ProAudio. I could be mistaken.

Instructions for turning midi into audio:

From Cakewalk.com

Instructions for SONAR projects containing MIDI only, or a combination of audio and MIDI:

MIDI tracks cannot be exported as a Wave file, only audio tracks can. So if you've got MIDI tracks in the file, you'll need to re-record your MIDI tracks as audio. The method you use to do this depends on whether you're using your sound card's synth or an external MIDI instrument for MIDI playback.

Here's how to do it if you're using your sound card's synth:

Open the file you're working with. Set up a new audio track with the In or Source set to Stereo. If you have more than one sound card installed, make sure you select the Source of the sound card that is playing your internal MIDI sounds.


Open your sound card's mixer device. This is normally done by choosing Start | Programs | Accessories | Entertainment | Volume Control | Options | Properties. Click on Adjust Volume For Recording, and make sure all boxes below are checked. Click OK, and locate the slider marked MIDI, Synth, Mixed Input, or What U Hear. Check the Select box at the bottom, then close the window.


Solo the MIDI tracks in the file, arm the audio track, and press Record. The MIDI tracks will get recorded as audio.


Use File | Export Audio to export the audio track(s) as a .WAV file, as outlined above.
Here's how to do it if you're using an external MIDI instrument:

Open the file you're working with. Set up a new audio track with the In or Source set to Stereo. If you have more than one sound card installed, make sure you select the Source of the sound card that is playing your internal MIDI sounds.


Using an audio cable, connect the audio output of your MIDI instrument to your sound card's Line In.


Open your sound card's mixer device. This is normally done by choosing Start | Programs | Accessories | Entertainment | Volume Control | Options | Properties. Click on Adjust Volume For Recording, and make sure all boxes below are checked. Click OK, and locate the slider marked Line In. Check the Select box at the bottom, then close the window.


Solo the MIDI tracks in the file, arm the audio track, and press Record. The MIDI tracks will get recorded as audio.


Use File | Export Audio to export the audio track(s) as a .WAV file, as outlined above.

Instructions for users of previous Cakewalk products:

The steps outlined above apply to other Cakewalk audio and MIDI sequencing products as well, though the process and menu items are slightly different. The main differences are in how the audio data is exported as a .WAV file, and they are as follows:

Exporting the audio data

In Pro Audio 9.0x. Home Studio 9.0x, and Music Creator 1.0, use Tools | Mixdown Audio | Export To File to export your audio track(s) as a .WAV file.
In Guitar Studio 2.0, you must use Tools | Mixdown Audio first, then select the resulting track and use Tools | Export Audio.
In Express 8.0, you simply use Tools | Export Audio.

Have fun!

You've now got a .WAV file ready to be burned to CD
