I have no definitive answer regarding future BandLab plug-ins. BandLab did purchase the plug-in IP along with SONAR. There were discussions on the old forum soon after the purchase about add-ons to CbB. I suspect as soon as the account migration is complete, the plug-ins are re-badged and the store built-out, some of the old Cakewalk plug-ins will be available.

 

In the case where one had 64bit SONAR or other Cakewalk DAW installed which included plug-ins no longer bundled with CbB, the old plug-ins work fine in CbB. If the plug-ins are missing, the old DAW needs to be installed. A complete install of the old DAW is the simplest way to get the all the bundled content back. This should be done before installing CbB. If done after installing CbB, it may be necessary to re-install CbB.

 

 SONAR X3 and older have an advanced install option which makes adding individual plug-ins easy. The newer versions of SONAR were comprised of several installers so, it may be possible to install some of the plug-ins without installing the DAW.

 

That said, the Sonitus Multiband is bundled with CbB.

Yes, CA-2A was never bundled with the regular X-Series or Platinum distributions. It was given away (maybe more than once) but I do not believe it was ever automatically added to user accounts. The later versions of CA-2A had a Command Center installer and used the newer activation routines. The original CA-2A used the old serial/registration number activation. CA-2A free or paid came with all available formats.

I don't think CA-2A was part of the X3 or Platinum install.  It was originally a separate product.  I remember them giving it away for a while (or was that just the Pro Channel version?)  Maybe check Command Center?

I downloaded the demo version of CA-2A using the command center.  Being as I did not buy Sonar versions when it was offered, is there a way to authorize it so it is not in demo mode?

IIRC, you had to "claim" your free version of CA-2A at the time. Once you did, it appeared in the Cakewalk Command Center as a licensed product.

Any time I've had to re-install mine, I've done it via the CCC.
