I've heard alot of you mention cakewalk before, so what's the deal with it? I saw cakewalk for 30 bucks at best buy. But there is one in musicians friend for 300. Are there different versions of cakewalk, and which one do guys have? Cuz if the one for 30 bucks is the one you guys are talking about, I'll probably get it. But I'm thinking there is a more expensive one.

haha yah im pretty sure thats not the right one. cakewalk isnt really any more amazing then any other program. it focuses more on midi if youre into that. im pretty sure they stopped making cakewalk anyway, well changed it to Sonar which is more for all around recording. I hear sonar is good but its gonna cost you plenty im sure. If you like making scores in midi, get the 30$ cakewalk, but i wouldnt otherwise.

I figured...

Fortunately, I am working on getting a degree in MIDI Recording. I'd like to compose MIDI scores for movies someday. I think it will revolutionize music in films. Who needs a full orchestra anyways?

I just watched a deal on tech tv about this guy who makes midi ringtones. What a job..

Yeah, Cakewalk is pretty much dead. It's been the trailing recording software for a while.

Cubase SX2 is very good, MIDI-wise.

I like how people no longer mention the cost of software...they just say pick it up on Kazaa. As much as I...er...support? piracy...I feel dirty when other people talk about it.

What?

I started off with Cakewalk which came with my Soundblaster a million years ago..

~4yrs ago i started playing with Cubase 4 that a friend sent me...then CubaseVST...i bought CubaseVST/32 and SX (as well as other proggies like WaveLab).

If i hadn't been able to play with Cubase in the first place, it is very unlikely i would have ever spent the $2000+ i have on them.

I have no problem with someone playing with it in their bedrooms, and small artists who can barely afford a computer using it. If you're starting to make some decent coin from your music production (which still isn't me) then i think you should buy it.

There's no way Steinberg or whoever is 'losing' money in these situations. They really have only the potential to gain. (Unless they dropped their prices down to $60 or something ridiculous like that.)

The really amusing thing is i'm using a hacked copy of SX2 because my dongle for SX has malfunctioned..haha

Get Cubasis instead which is watered down version of Cubase the industry standard midi sequencer. It has everything you need and is a fraction of the price of the full professional software.
