Gives you an estimate on how long the activation servers will be up.
Interesting! Thanks for the link, ZQ.
And -- the article is more than a year old. My bet is that things have gotten worse since then, not better. Won't be surprised if they end up in bankruptcy next year, with the different parts sliced off and sold for pennies on the dollar. I don't know about you guys, but I spent many thousands of dollars on guitar gear over more than four decades. But I haven't bought a new guitar or amp (except for a Katana100, which rocks hard!) for about ten years. I've bought maybe three pedals in the last three years. My generation is done with buying hardware, and the ones behind us don't care.
Best bet scenario, I think, is that Cakewalk gets acquired and re-animated. But I can't really imagine who would want it at this point. Can't even be gutted for assets, as they're mostly all soft, and fading further into obsolescence every month.
So, yeah, the sooner we get the software that we bought downloaded and unlocked, the better for us.
...Though I don't foresee me re-installing Sonar again. Bet it's just going to take up a lot of useless space on a lot of peoples' hard drives.
