JavaDAW is the first succesful music sequencer (vsthost) or DAW completely build in java. JavaDAW can be installed on a Windows machine or on a Mac. All the necessary files to run javaDAW are available in the .rar file. JavaDaw creates a javadaw home in your $USER_HOME directory with Projects, Export, Resources and Backup sub-directories. Download the Instruments and place them in the Resource directory.

JavaDAW will only work with the java 32 or 64 bit JRE installed (1.7 or 1.8). To be downloaded from : Oracle (java JRE). The installed JRE determines which javaDAW version should be used (32 or 64 bit version). The wrapper will search for a valid JRE install. Do not mix 32 bit and 64 bit plugins in the VST folder. Best practice is to create a separate folder for the 32 bit plugins and a seperate folder for the 64 bit plugins.

(!) Be sure to install the java JRE under C:\Programs Files (64 bit) or under C:\Program Files (x86) (32 bit).

(!) A new piano native plugin is available now. Download the Piano.rar resources and place the directory under /Resources/Piano..... Rescan the plugins to see the plugin in the pluginlist.

(!) All libraries are in the .rar (Windows) and the .zip (OSX) file. For OSX put the libraries in /System/Library/Java/Extensions. For Windows leave them in the javadaw directoy or put them in System32....

javaDAW is FREE software and personal use is allowed. JavaDAW may not be used for commercial purposes without written permission of the owner (see e-mail adress below). The use of javaDaw is without any warranty! Be aware of the fact that the OSX version is somewhat behind compared to the development of the Windows version.


That is All.....Start making music.
