: : i use cakewalk to record midis.can midi files be converted to audio and burned to a cd with a writeable cd-rw for play on a disc? Roger

: Roger, I am going to assume you have a QS keyboard of some sort. I am also assuming that you are using Cakewalk Pro Audio (if not, then see next paragraph). What you need to do is connect your audio out from the keyboard to your line in of your soundcard. Next, go to the soundcard mixer and make sure that the Line In is enable (and dissable or turn off all the other inputs). Next, go into Cakewalk and set an empty track with the soundcard as the source input (and enable the Record buttong if you are using CWPA9). Next, hit record and your audio will be recorded into a wav file in Cakewalk. You can then export to .wav and burn to CD.

: If you don't have Pro Audio, then you will need to use another wav program like Sound Forge or the Windows sound recorder. Make sure that the soundcard is conected to the keyboard (same as above) and this time, press record on the wav program and then alt-tab over to Cakewalk and press play. You will need to edit the .wav file after to get rid of the gap.

: Good luck.

I was able to record audio (WAV file) with my QS8 and Cakewalk Home Studio 8 by doing the same thing. I didn't need any other software. You'll also need to fiddle with the levels. The Cakewalk help file has some usful info on recording and levels. Good luck.
