Getting Started with Divisimate Micro in


Cakewalk Quickstart

In this tutorial we will go through the steps to send the individual notes of 4-note chords to four different instruments in Cakewalk.


1) Create a new session in Cakewalk.

2) Make sure that in Edit > Preferences > MIDI > Devices all the Divisimate Ports are activated. Unfortunately Cakewalk does not sort MIDI ports by name, so they may appear out of order in the list of inputs.

3) Create an instrument track with Divisimate Micro as instrument.


You should now see Divisimate Micro with a default 4 by 4 routing in a plugin window.

4) Select your keyboard controller as input for the track. This is important to avoid feedback loops.

5) Create 4 instrument-tracks with virtual instruments of your choice.

6) Set the input of those 4 tracks to Divisimate Ports 01 through 04. You can choose the input either on the track itself or via the inspector. Also, make sure the tracks are record-enabled and Input Echo is switched on.

6) Now you can play the four instruments through Divisimate and record the result. Have fun orchestrating and composing!
