To use digital audio in Cakewalk, you first have to make sure that your sound card and its driver are properly installed. For information about sound card and driver installation, see your sound card’s documentation, and also Audio hardware (sound cards) and drivers.After you’ve successfully tested your sound card and driver, you should play back one of the sample files that came with your Cakewalk software.To play back a sample file, use the File > Open command, navigate to a folder that has bundle files in it (they have the extension .bun or .cwb), select a bundle file, and click Open. After the file loads, make sure that your speakers are turned on, and play the file by pressing the SPACEBAR. You also can stop the file’s playback by pressing the SPACEBAR again. You should hear something. You can rewind the file by pressing W, or by clicking the Rewind button in the Control Bar.
