  1. I definitely think there are a good case for two modes, "Easy/Basic" and "Normal". Thus BandLab can cater for people like podcasters etc and another for the power users. To understand why easy mode is a just cause you have to analyse the impact of Garageband. Below are two articles you might find interesting. https://pitchfork.com/features/article/9728-democracy-of-sound-is-garageband-good-for-music/ https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/apple-garageband-modern-music-784257/
  2. Maybe there can be two versions of the UI, which you can you can toggle? One simple, GarageBand esque UI and the other one the default UI for advanced users (which is the current one).
  3. Doing the basics on Cakewalk is easy. There is just a slight learning curve. Arming a track and pressing record is very easy. Creating new tracks is very easy. Making things easier and dumbing down software is something that is infuriating to power users. If people want very very basic there are options, like Audacity.
  4. Just want to mention that I really appreciate BandLabs direction to make CakeWalk a super stable host first. That is the most important thing.
  5. I recently read how few millennials can afford big houses in the US and around the world. These folks can't host a traditional band with drums, physical instruments, big amps and such in their homes. Thus a lot of new music are electronic computer made music, made by one man bands using synths, drum plugins, loops, sampling and step sequencers. This is why FLstudio is the most popular DAW in the world at the moment as polled by Music Radar. I really hope CbB can create some kind of parity with this types of DAW's. This would increase CbB's user base by a massive amount. But I understand if CbB want to focus on audio at the moment. One step at a time.
  6. You guys at CbB are awesome! This is going to be the best DAW in the world.
  7. @SomeGuy I am extremely grateful to the new owner of CakeWalk. I believe him and the developers of CdB would like to satisfy all of its users, catering to the audio, electronic music and composing crowds simultaneously. At the moment Bandlab are aiming towards 100 employees. The startup itself is fully funded and the investors of Bandlab have a net worth of $13.2 Billion Dollars US. I believe the resources to turn this DAW into an all-rounder are there and it will happen. We just have to be patient.
  8. Also note Autogun synth, its free and it have an amazing amount of presets. https://www.image-line.com/plugins/Synths/Autogun/
  9. I think my previous comment are very short sighted. The community have spoken and Cakewalk will focus on bug fixes and audio improvements. The electronic music crowd will probably use VST's in conjunction with Cakewalk. I believe in the future the step sequencer and sampler will be souped up. To satisfy everybody will be very difficult and I am glad for what we have. Cakewalk is not just a DAW anymore, its a movement.
  10. There are no reason why the features cant co-exist. In my opinion Cakewalk should become more "electronic music producer" friendly because that is where the most users are.
  11. Cheers Paul. We are so spoiled for choice, Sony, JBL, Sennheizer, TinAudio, BeyerDynamic, Audio Technica, Philips...all make affordable earbuds these days. Its a shame you can just go into a shop and try all of them all out.
  12. From a lot of reviews these Panasonic's are supposedly the best value for money. https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-Headphones-RP-HJE120-K-Ergonomic-Comfort-Fit/dp/B003EM8008 https://www.cnet.com/reviews/panasonic-ergo-fit-review/
  13. I can recommend two more free synths. Surge https://surge-synthesizer.github.io Helm https://tytel.org/helm/
  14. Are they working on this? Is it going to be re-released in the future or is it abandon ware?
  15. When you Google CakeWalk you get redirected to Bandlab.com . Then on Bandlab homepage there is no mention or link to Cakewalk. And its not only me, here are a Reddit link to someone who also agree.
