Is this possible with Cakewalk?

I have a Roland JX-305 and Cakewalk 8. I have sequences on my JX-305 that I want to record into Cakewalk and then arrange them into a song and add knob tweaks afterwards. I would like to put each sequence into a different track in Cakewalk and then arrange and cut up the sequences to make a song. For example, have a bass intro, then the drums come in with a break, then the melody comes in, then a modified drum loop with a break in the bassline etc.

I can record all the parts into a single track but that doesn't allow me to get to each part. I can record Part 1 from the synth into track 1 in Cakewalk but when I go to record part 2 into track 2, the data from part 1 gets into track 2.

Does a process like this involve a lot of changing of parameters in Cakewalk and my synth in between recording and playing the parts, I would think that I should be able to set it up once and record part 1 into track 1 while the other parts are muted and so on for all 8 parts.
