JavaDAW is very easy to use. Just download the resources and a JRE (32 bit or 64 bit).
Be sure to put the javadaw.exe or javadaw.jar file in the same directory as the libraries (.dll's)
Start javadaw.exe once to create all important directories under yoour HOME account /users/javadaw/..
You will find here a /Project directory, an /Export directory, a /Backup directory and a /Resources directory.
Replace the /Resources directory with the downloaded version.
Here you will find all instrument samples (.sfl) and all other example midi and wav files.
There is also a 64 bit version of javaDAW available. To use this version a 64 bit JRE should be installed under C:/Program Files/Java.
This version can be downloaded from the Sun - Java site.
Javadaw has several native plugins...jDrum, jBass, jRhodes, jCompressor, etc....
Start javaDAW again and a first "Default" project is created. You can create new projects (.prj) if you like.
Now (important) javaDAW assumes the VSTPlugin directory is under /Program Files (x86)/Steinberg/VSTPlugins....
If you need another VST directory, just choose one (under the menu "Set VST Directory". This one is stored).
Got to the audiopanel and choose your ASIO driver. The Java sound engine does not record because of the huge latency.
Use F1 to access the Resource panel. Hit the reScan button and the plugins (inclusing the java plugins) are added to the
plugin list. All info is stored in the initDaw.txt file (under /Resources).
Hit "i" to enter an example drum sequence on track 0 or an example bass sequence on track 1.
There are also example sequences for track 2 and track 3.
Hit the spacebar and you will have javaDAW running.
