Why is Cakewalk by Bandlab free?

The Political/Economic discussion is over, and has been for a while...

So you clearly aren't referring to that, as it would make little sense at this point.

Yeah, you're right, I was just being a bit of an arse :D

 

Carry on!

I like my three main DAWs. CbB, Studio One and Mixbus. Reaper is 2nd line defense for me. Verion 6, whenever it becomes reality, my be a game changer for quite a rew, IMO.

Hands up how many people read that and thought........what's this Verion 6 DAW  that he's on about and  why have I never heard of that brand name before?

Ok, just me then.😑

I have samplitude and mixcraft.

 They are dead  to me. Not worth my time. Not even Samp v4.

Wasted a total of $200 on those two.

I'd be happy to give you absolutely nothing for your Samp v4 licence.😁

Well, some keep mentioning Version 5 over at the REAPER forum so I just assumed that's what it was referring to :D

It will be interesting to see what Version 6 brings. Justin and company have really been holding back on version 6.

So, one person asks a question like "why is CbB free?" and it results in 8 pages (so far) of responses and discussions.  This happens so much that I really believe that some of you must have an insecure feeling that Meng and company are just going to  someday soon come along and pull the rug out from this whole thing and we will all be without this program.  Do some of us doubt Meng or Noel?  Even the guy at NAMM said something like it will be free FOREVER!! 

Is the old saying "If something seems to be too good to be true, it probably is" creeping through some of our minds?

Don't you trust them?  I do.  Stop worrying and enjoy making music!

Well if we keep posting it will be 9, 10, 11............................................ pages :)
Or maybe like the energizer bunny  keeps going keeps going keeps going.
Maybe CbB is free because they don't have to pay for any stinking badges😮

Perhaps this topic should move to the Coffee House now...

Yeah.  You could invite Meng and Noel and ask them again.😉 (Not that you'll believe them).

I think all DAWs should be free. ;)

On topic please! 😛

:D

 

As someone who willingly paid for Sonar/Cakewalk, the notion of why it is free can only be summed up with words like "miracle" and things of that nature.  

The topic of why hasen't everyone in the Windows DAW world jumped on board?  That at least has a point of discussion.

Noel has kindly chipped in here. Perhaps you missed that John.

Reason for moving to the other place is because this post has run its course.

Interesting reading about Mac-vs-PC and the users response to pro solutions, or lack of them

Edit: I realize I should have posted it in the other thread about low latency interfaces but oh well :).

I have just thought of the perfect way to draw this topic to a close before it gets to page nine:-

Excuse me.  I just put on another pot of coffee and even made some hot chocolate. Now what am I suppose to do??????? :)
