Cakewalk contains preset mappings for most controllers/surfaces. Before creating a set of mappings from scratch, load one of the preset mappings for your controller/surface and see if you like it. Even if the preset doesn’t meet all of your needs, it is usually a good base for creating your own presets.
Note: To use ACT with the Cakewalk Generic Surface property page, you need to first assign the knobs and controls on your controller/surface to radio buttons 1-9 and A-G in the ACT Controls section of the property page, and save these assignments as a new preset. See To Use ACT with the Cakewalk Generic Surface.
1. At the top of the Cakewalk Generic Surface property page, in the Presets field, click the drop-down arrow that is at the right edge of the Presets box to display the menu of built-in presets.
3. Try out the available presets for your controller/surface. If you want to edit one of them, first save it under a new name: type a new name for it in the Presets window, and then click the Save button that’s next to the Presets box.
