Re: Cakewalk ending development and shutting down

I'm more concerned about their tacky name than any tacky addons they might tack on.

So long as the core product rolls on with bug fixes and the occasional feature I'm happy enough. In fact, not even worried about features, its already fully loaded, it just needs polish in some areas.

Re: Cakewalk ending development and shutting down

It would be great if that happened..and it very well might. But I think we'll see it added to their "services" and you'll need to buy into those in order to get your hands on it..which would be worth it, I guess.

I think, tbh, I have a problem with their image in general..the whole "..everything you need for your next big hit" thing puts me right off, as they come across as pandering to noobs and the naive out there..and it's a shame to see Cakewalk a part of all that.

At least CW will live on in some form, which is better I guess, than seeing it die where it currently stands.

Signed up. Not seen anything obvious on their site about linking accounts. I like their logo, even if the name sounds a bit cheesy.

Do keep us updated on how it goes. I didn't sign up..don't really "feel" what they're offering..maybe it's an age thing..but I doubt any such service is what I really need " to make you next big hit". I think I'd just become frustrated with them in the end and don't feel like having to pay for the experience..but that's maybe just me..maybe they're atop-class service with a lot to offer..just doesn't appeal to me, though.

I'm just about to tuck into this..

Aye, I read the announcement earlier.

Bold move by Bandlab, I wish them every success with it.

Re: Cakewalk ending development and shutting down

Pretty cool move! Allows me to give Sonar another chance after never really getting comfortable with an older version (X3). Looks nice too, but that will be the improvements over the older version i'm used to probably.

Re: Cakewalk ending development and shutting down

Sonar has some facepalm-inducing bugs but basically it is a great product.

Once it crashed on me while duplicating a track. Filed a report. Then went back to Live and duplicated to my hearts content

z3ta was probably their best known and longest developed one. It's pretty great. There's probably people more worried about it being discontinued than Sonar itself.

In no particular order..


Z3TA+ 2

Rapture Pro

Rapture Session

Pentagon I

Square I

Session Drummer 2

Triangle II



They also sold SFZ+ Professional..one of the best SoundFont players/samplers out there. Wish I'd grabbed it when I had the chance.

So anyone tried out any of the Bandlab updates since they took over?
