Gibson recently acquired Cakewalk and just announced that they are pulling the plug.

Cakewalk software was my first experience in sequencing and music production and for the last 30 years they have been innovating with what I felt was the best DAW in the Windows platform. The company was working on a Mac version which I was waiting for years. πŸ™

Check out what MIDI Sequencing looked and sounded like back in the DOS era:

And what Sonar’s last iteration looked like:

I have used Cakewalk Pro Audio and Sonar on all early Dol Ammad and Dol Theeta albums like “Star Tales”, “Ocean Dynamics” and “The Universe Expands”.

I am so sad that we will not see a further development of the platform. I wish all the best to the people who were involved in Cakewalk and who are affected by this. Thank you for your great product over the years.
