Cakewalk Publisher

For those of you that don't know, Cakewalk has made a cool new internet-based tool called Cakewalk Publisher that allows you to create players to post on any HTML website (MySpace, PureVolume, eBay, Friendster, Windows Live Spaces, Blogs, etc).

Cakewalk Publisher will be included in the Project5 Version 2.5 update. Here is a little more information about the feature:

Create a customized, online, streaming music player with playlists that can then be uploaded from Project5 to band websites, MySpace, Blogs, and other Internet sites. Once you have finished a song in Project5, you can export it directly to Cakewalk Publisher.

Once you setup Cakewalk Publisher, you are then all set to start creating players that can be uploaded to almost any website. With Cakewalk Publisher, you can choose from a variety of options to customize the player including:

  • Creating playlists using multiple songs
  • Choosing the size of the Player (Album, Full, and Slim)
  • Choosing images and URLs for each song
  • Picking color schemes for the Player
  • Auto-play and repeating your playlists

You can create as many different players as you want. Once you are ready to upload it to your site, just click the “Publish” button. Cakewalk Publisher will then confirm that the upload was successful and display code, which you can then use to post on any website that supports HTML. That includes sites like MySpace, PureVolume, eBay, Friendster, Windows Live Spaces, Blogs,(TypaPad, WordPress, Blogger, etc) and more!

So to recap: Export Song>> Create Playlist>> Select Player>> Publish Player>> Promote Your Music

It really is that simple. And best of all, Cakewalk Publisher allows you to share your music with the world while still retaining ownership since you will be hosting the actually files on your site.

Sounds like a great idea! What "streaming" format is the music going to be published in?

I've been trying to download the P5 Demo and I can't get anything. I can't seem to get into the ftp. Does Cakewalk have an alternative or can I find the demo somewhere else? Thank you.

So, version 2.5 is out. When you started this blog your aim was to have a new interactive way of developing new versions. Are you satisfied?
