Bummer. At some point I guess us Sonar users will be looking for a new DAW. Any suggestions Window users on DAW alternatives?
Gibson Brands announced today that it is ceasing active development and production of Cakewalk branded products. The decision was made to better align with the company’s acquisition strategy that is heavily focused on growth in the global consumer electronics audio business under the Philips brand.November 22, 2017 at 2:05 pm #28903

Cubase, because it does virtually everything well. Which is ironically maybe why you don’t need it. There is so much under the hood it can appear clunky and a like a dinosaur. However for media work I can’t think of a better solution.November 22, 2017 at 5:24 pm #28906
Thanks Denis, that’s what I was thinking. I tried it years ago and did not like the interface but I imagine it’s improved over the years.November 22, 2017 at 5:28 pm #28907
They do full 30 day demos, there will be a demo of the newest version 9.5 in a couple of weeks.I use Pro and it is expensive compared to others, they have been known to do cross grades from competing DAWs.November 22, 2017 at 5:39 pm #28908
Great, I’ll get on their mailing list.November 22, 2017 at 7:59 pm #28909
Digital Performer is dual platform
They also have a 30 day demo…November 23, 2017 at 9:50 am #28911
Here you go Art 50 % off for you Sonar guys.November 23, 2017 at 11:53 am #28912
Thanks Denis, very tempting.November 23, 2017 at 11:58 am #28913
A question Denis. Does Melodyne integrate well with Cubase?November 23, 2017 at 1:49 pm #28914
No problem with Melodyne, usual integration, record into it and record out. Doesn’t do the ARA integration like Studio One.November 23, 2017 at 1:54 pm #28915
Melodyne sits inside Sonar with ARA. That would be a deal breaker for me. I use to use it the old way but ARA is far more convenient.November 23, 2017 at 3:15 pm #28916
I hear you, the only other one I know that uses ARA is Studio One. Its certainly has issues on a Mac, not as many on a PC AFAIK.November 27, 2017 at 9:19 am #28926
Maybe the CW line will get picked up by another company…?November 27, 2017 at 9:46 am #28927

Hopefully, I’ve been following the thread on their forum. They did say that current Platinum owners will get a license file, to get around Internet authorization, once their servers shut down.
