Excelent! Great DAW... I have been working on Cakewalk since the DOS version, it is an incredible software that has been a pioneer in the industry. It has everything a professional DAW requires and it's free! There are permanent updates that allow corrections and new features. It even has its own musical programming language! (CAL) and it is quite easy to learn to use. I have tried other DAWs but I always stick with Cakewalk ... Reaper is also an excellent DAW and almost free, Cubase, Studio One, Logic, Ableton are excellent too, and ProTools the industry standard but in my opinion Cake does not stay not a step back ... and it's super stable. the only defect I find is that it is only for windows platform, it should have a version for Mac OS..

It's so great to have the new Cakewalk visible here at KVR. As an example of the team's hands-on engagement with the user base, this listing itself was created by a BandLab/Cakewalk senior engineer, an active musician himself.

For in-depth discussion and assistance, the official Cakewalk Forum is the place to go. See you there.

The one star review up there. This guy bought a software license a decade ago from a company that went out of business 5 years ago. He lost his install discs (remember when software came on physical discs?). There is now a company called BandLab that has a product with the same name as the company that he bought the license from (the product has the same name, the company is 5 years gone). Since BandLab can't help someone with no proof of purchase get a copy of this old synthesizer plug-in that he bought from a company who BandLab bought some code and trademarks from, he gave their product a one star review.

As a courtesy, BandLab has kept the old Cakewalk company's web server online so that Cakewalk Inc. customers can still have access to their software, but that requires the customer to have created an account and registered their serial numbers before Cakewalk Inc. closed its doors. In order for this guy to get what he wants, BandLab would have to be able to generate new user accounts on the old server and new serial numbers for a defunct company's discontinued product.

Let it serve as a warning: if you bought software in 2012 from the 5 years gone Cakewalk Inc. company and lost your install media and never set up an account with Cakewalk Inc. and expect the company who makes Cakewalk the program to do something about it in 2022, you will be disappointed. Probably by many things.
