Cakewalk Sonar etc

'kin 'ell

After 30 years of Cakewalk’s long and illustrious history, I am saddened to announce that we ceased new product development and reduced overall operations this past Friday. You can read the formal announcement from Gibson here, which states that this decision was made in order to align with the company’s acquisition strategy, focused on growth in the global consumer electronics audio business.

Mixcraft
Here's another viable SONAR alternative that we've been overlooking. I decided to do some research after Acoustica's Anthony Conte posted on one of our "what are the options" threads.

To quote Professor Farnsworth: Good News, Everybody! Mixcraft is definitely in the running for a preferred SONAR alternative.

Hi
For me to have Mixcraft as a Sonar Platinum alternative ,a few things need to be done.

Mixcraft Vst side is fantastic.
I have a now have a Yamaha Genos and would like to edit that which Sonar does.
I can just use a Yamaha driver and USB to host computer without using a sound box like my Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 to edit the Genos sounds and Mixcraft have not yet got Sys Ex like Sonar.

At the moment If you try to edit the Genos you get a box come up saying you have not got your sound card or box on and you cannot use record or play.
So Mixcraft at the moment is really for the VST market, and Is a great program.
I wished now that Acoustica could get the Sonar rights and combine.
Pigs might fly .
If Sonar has gone to the wall will anyone pick the rights up for a cheap price or get them free as they gone Bust. Who owns the rights to Sonar now If it is gone.??? Must be a big business opportunity for someone I guess. :)

All the best
John
