A live DAW worth finding!

Cakewalk Project5Published on 07/28/12 at 20:07
Cakewalk's Project5 was the first DAW I ever used, and it can be very versatile, and it can be very useful, even for recording live bands. It is mainly designed with electronic music creation in mind, with advanced loop saving and loop triggering abilities. You can trigger loops live using the matrix page, and you have many options for how to set how the loops are triggered, whether the start time should be quantized or instantly played, and wether or not the sample should be looped or one-shot.

For regular midi input, there are options for quantizing the data, and even using an advanced arpeggiator. Project5 is very capable towards midi setups, as that is the medium for most electronic...…

Cakewalk's Project5 was the first DAW I ever used, and it can be very versatile, and it can be very useful, even for recording live bands. It is mainly designed with electronic music creation in mind, with advanced loop saving and loop triggering abilities. You can trigger loops live using the matrix page, and you have many options for how to set how the loops are triggered, whether the start time should be quantized or instantly played, and wether or not the sample should be looped or one-shot.

For regular midi input, there are options for quantizing the data, and even using an advanced arpeggiator. Project5 is very capable towards midi setups, as that is the medium for most electronic music. In later versions of Project5, they added the ability to record audio (as opposed to simply importing audio), which makes it capable of recording rock bands, which is what I did briefly. It is not optimized for this, and if you use a high-latency sound card, Project5 doesn't automatically adjust for the latency, and you have to manually move all of the audio back a few milliseconds, depending on the latency.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Project5 works great for live show, and live triggering of midi patterns and audio, which is what it was mainly designed for. It can handle many synths pretty well, and it even comes with a bunch of basic synthesizers (including some forms of Cakewalk's famed Dimension sampler). With these, you can start creating music immediately.


OVERALL OPINION

Overall, Project5 was a great side DAW created by Cakewalk, that had it's niche customer base away from their flagship SONAR DAW software. It is no longer supported, so it may be hard to find nowadays, but if you are looking for a live alternative to something like Ableton's Live, Project5 can be a great choice. It can inspire the mind.

APRS me that he was a product of dstockage and they had removed from the catalog, they still offer the product on AudioFanzine and on their website, it borders on scam. APRS having contact several times, I realized they was walking. Rather than admit their mistakes, they persist in the lies (there is no longer the product, I swear on the head of my son! (See Jrome and Patron) and they incriminate Edirol. I ask them simply LGAL version of Project 5, new, in French and in perfect state, it has a deal: they're the gossips and not me!
Version 2 due out in April is free for those who bought version 1.5 aprsfvrier 2005. INTERESTED so intelligent and politically supporting Cakewalk product that MRIT. Just Tlcharger document in PDF format from the site Edirol France, fill it and send it by registered N SERIES, a copy of the invoice and a 18-chque Edirol GB euros. The product is very greedy and accept them wisely intgrant all vst and dx of the market. Moreover, it seems that the advantage for the edition of Roll the new version will be closer to that of Sonar, more ergonomic, which is not luxury. While Mr. Cakewalk, a little effort on ergonomics and a French version complte soft + doc. Because the product is good and trs MRIT be widely known to the general public and therefore encouraged by all those who use dj! Go to the site www.project5.com. You'll find DMOS, the vidos, tutorials in flash Tlcharger, a club, in short everything you need to get an ide.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Medion P550 3.4 GHz.
Stable configuration.
The software runs with the sound card Intgr the motherboard (8.1) and frankly, I cofiguration bluffing. I wonder if this does not turn the cards better than the market. But there is a but, it lacks the MIDI is Gnant. But in terms of audio, a roll!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 months.
J'apprcie big possibility that the product esprant version 2 is that of maturation as they say on France Inter!
