  1. There is no direct download of CbB. Never has been.

    The Cakewalk by BandLab website provides a link to BandLab Assistant.

    BandLab Assistant runs BandLab (the DAW) from the top icon in the Apps tab and installs Cakewalk by BandLab using the install button below the second image in the Apps tab (this is documented here).

    Had you selected the install button below the second image we would not be having this discussion.

    That said, BandLab Assistant for installing and updating CbB is being phased out in favor of the Cakewalk Web Installer and in-app updating from the CbB help menu.

    Then I'm missing something completely because this is the only version from SONAR that's free. Everything else costs money. 

    As I mentioned above, the image in your post is a different DAW.

    BandLab (the company) offers two free DAWs

    • BandLab - this is the one in your image above
    • Cakewalk by BandLab - this is the Windows-based DAW developed from the SONAR sources.

    You cannot just relocate folders used by Cakewalk without first going into settings and letting Cakewalk know where to find them.

    File - Folder Locations


    It is possible using directory junctions.

    I find it preferable in most cases to use directory junctions rather than messing with preferences and registry entries.

    There are several discussions about how to use directory junctions.

    Search the forum for mklink

    browse to Cakewalk Content/Cakewalk Core/Track Templates, pick a template and drop it in the Track Pane.

    To save browsing time make sure to save the location(s) in the media browser drop down
