The Ultimate Cakewalk Course

Rated: ★★★★★(400+ users)        Total time: 6h 10min


Learn Cakewalk On A Professional Level

In this course, professional engineer and 15-year Cakewalk power user, Robert McClellan, shows you how to get off on the right foot with Cakewalk by BandLab and make it a digital workhorse, that allows you to pump out pro-grade audio projects on a daily basis.

  • Understand how to perform the initial setup and installation
  • Discover how to customize the DAW to your individual needs
  • Learn how to mix and master audio to a professional standard
  • Find out about little-known features that will significantly speed up your work flow

With 10 modules and 6 hours of detailed instruction, The Ultimate Cakewalk by BandLab Course will teach you everything you ever need to know about creating music in this powerful, free DAW.

The training is separated into smaller, more manageable modules with PDF guides, to help you not feel overwhelmed and apply what you’ve learned along the way.

– And I promise you: it is worth it! It will save you weeks, if not months, of painful trial and error and allow you to spend your time producing amazing audio projects instead.


Let me show you how to adjust the DAW’s layout, routing, and organizational structure to create the perfect working environment for any given scenario: Be it recording, editing, producing, or mixing.

Stay Creative With A Lightning-Fast Work flow

Adopting a seamless and highly efficient work flow in audio is important for multiple reasons.

  1. It allows you to stay in your creative zone during a session, without having to worry about the technical side.
  2. Time is money: As a producer/engineer, a great work flow can make the difference between earning $10 an hour or $100.

Cakewalk by BandLab provides several unique features that allow you to become more creative and efficient than ever before.

  • Learn how to use dedicated templates and work spaces to streamline every part of the production process.
  • Discover how to utilize unique ‘Custom Plugin & FX Chains’, to create ‘new’ plugins and recall your favorite chains at the click of a button.
  • Utilize Cakewalk’s ‘Arranger’ feature, as well as hot keys to navigate your sessions at lightning speed.

To give you a great starting point, I'll even provide you with my personal Template, which contains a solid routing system, as well as pro tips for mixing each instrument.

Apply What You Learn

Knowing how a DAW works, in theory, will not necessarily make you a great producer.

The ‘Mixing & Mastering A Song’ module allows you to put everything you’ve learned into practice – accompanied by a step-by-step guide.

Look over my shoulder, and mix with me as we work on a modern country song called ‘Found’ by Kayla Patrick, from scratch and in real-time.

Discover how to mix drums, bass, guitars, keys, and vocals at a professional level and learn how to tie everything together in a powerful, 3-dimensional mix.

I'm including all multitracks of the song, as well as the Cakewalk session file, so you can follow along every step of the way and mix this song yourself.

You even have permission to use your own mix of this song on your portfolio to attract new bands to your studio!

A Proven System To Craft Pro Mixes

If you’re like me, you’re doing everything in your power to take your sound to the next level: You’re watching YouTube videos, reading blog posts… and learning every trick you can get your hands on.

The thing is: Most of these videos only cover ONE specific technique without giving you much insight into the bigger picture. The question is: When and why should you use these techniques in a mix?

What you really need is a system that allows you to take the sound that’s in your head and make it come out of the speakers.

A repeatable process, which allows you to work quickly and to focus on creative ideas, rather than worrying about technical issues.

In over 20 years of working as an engineer, I have developed such a system. And in this course I am sharing it with you! 

Robert’s ‘15-Step Mixing System‘ will help you to stay focused on what really matters: the big picture and feeling of the song.

Applying this system regularly will speed up your work flow tremendously and enable you to turn around high-quality mixes reliably.

Complementary PDF Guides

I’m sure you’ve all had this issue: You’ve spent multiple hours watching a super educational video.

But when you want to brush up on one specific technique, you’re unsure of where to find it. Well… time to sift through hours and hours of video material to find the right section.

Not with this course!

I have created detailed, well-structured PDFs for each module, which allow you to brush up on any topic within seconds.

This means you can even enjoy watching the course without taking a single note.

Ain’t that something? Done-for-you cheat sheets!
