New release : javaDaw can be run as a 32 bit application or as a 64 bit application, depending on the JRE installed.
The 64 bit version may use a 1-2 GByte heap. Of the jasiohost and jvsthost dll's are 64 bit versions available.
Most VST plugins come with a 64 bit version also.
The dll' s should be placed in the root of javaDAW. A JVM (32 or 64 or both) should be installed.

What is new in 4.6.1

  • 32 bit and 64 bit version of javaDaw are available for Windows7/8.
  • A complete new user interface has been designed for javaDAW.

Getting started with javaDAW.

  • Download the files and put the 2 dll' s in the root of the folder or the System32 directory.
  • The application will check if ASIO and dll' s are available.
  • Put the directories in the resources.rar under /$user/javadaw/Resources.
  • If you don' t have ASIO, download ASIO4ALL (this is a free ASIO driver that works fine with your native audio card).
  • Start javaDAW by double clicking the .exe or the app.
  • The .exe file runs within a heap of 1024 MByte (this can be adjusted with jsmooth).
  • With the .jar file use -Xmx512m parameter or -Xmx1024 as parameter for heap size.
  • Create under Windows 7 or 8 a VSTPlugin directory by hand which should normally be under ../Program Files (x86)/Steinberg/VstPlugins.
  • Under XP, it will be created for you if not present. Under W7 you have to create it yourself.
  • On the MAC, javaDAW uses the standard plugin directory /System/Library/Audio/Plugins. It will NOT be created.
  • Choose a VST directory (menu) and scan the plugin directory (see menu or plugin panel on the left).
  • Watch the Youtube videos.

Other audio applications: If you need adjustments of javaDAW 4 or if you need other audio applications, just e-mail me.
