[ddots-l] Re: : Am i in over my head

I don't know what to tell you except to read a lesson and then just jump right in and try it. I'm just getting started with sonar, and it's not easy, but it's paying off. Even if you don't understand some of the terms. You can either look them up on google, or just leave them for another time.

If you have any specific questions, this list is of course always here.

We all had to start somewhere.

Good luck.

Sincerely
Aaron Cannon

Thank you but that is the problem in of it's self. I would say most if not all of the jargon does not make sense to me. Is there an intro to sound book, website, or something where I could learn what perimeters or basically anything else discussed is. Even the titles of the different lessons mean nothing to me.

Jason I think your best bet is to work through the lessons step by step, then contact the list when something doesn't work or doesn't make sense.


But first, it's very important that you ensure the CakeTalking scripts are correctly installed. The instructions for this are very good but still it's important that you work through all the steps and make sure things are working correctly, or wierd things can happen.

Another point, I too am a lap top user and although I run CakeTalking on a desk top, I typically have it set to the JAWS lap top keyboard setup. Now I don't know if this is fixed but I discovered after quite a lot of frustration that the CakeTalking scripts would only work correctly if JAWS was set to the standard desktop keyboard layout. Even the help key didn't work as described in the lessons until I figured that out.

Good luck.

I have all the stuff I need.  I have cake talking but I don't always
understand the jargon within even the lessons.  I'm a musician not a sound
person.  Anyway I can get the terms in the lessons defined as to what they
are and why I would need to do them?

Hi Jason,

To get started, you need:
1. a good pc, that is 1 gigahertz or faster pentium.
2. jaws 5.1 or higher.
3. sonar itself.
4. either Victor Tsaran's free sonar scripts for jaws, or the cake talking
scripts made by dancing dots.
5. A good soundcard.
I can well imagine that you want a beginner's tutorial and I attempted to
write down a few basics, but I found out I was duplicating something that
has already been written. So I did away with it altogether and therefore
I'm giving you this advice.

Please go to www.dancingDots.com and take a peak at their site. There's a
demo mp3 file there, from which you can hear what is possible with sonar,
and how easily it is acomplished. However, to be honest, I must tell you
that the guy doing this is a very experienced audio engineer and we can't
compete with him in this respect. Yet, it does give you a good impression
on what is possible. Only after some weeks of experimenting will you know
how to do things and do them well.

If you then buy CT, you won't regret it because they will give you an
excellent manual, which is mostly a tutorial. A friend of mine, who owned
CT long b4 I did, sent me its manual, which is a Word document. It is such
an amazingly inspiring document, that I couldn't let go of it even though
we were going to Turkey for a holiday. Because I wanted to keep reading, I
converted it into a bunch of mp3 files by letting jaws read it and
recording that with an audio tool, so that I could take it with me on my
mp3 player, which is what I did.

All of us have had to start from scratch, from the very beginning, and I
know from my own experience that the CT stuff is a very good starting
point. Or if you don't want to buy the stuff before you have seen the
tutorials, why not write to dancing dots and ask them if they can send the
document off to you so you can get inspired.

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Paul.
