[UPDATE 9-Mar-2022: Cakewalk 2022.02 Update 1 (build now available]

We're pleased to announce the 2022.02 release! This is primarily a maintenance release that includes fixes for various user reported issues, plus a few enhancements to audio export and track folders.

Please note that in order to automatically keep your activation status up to date, Cakewalk will renew your activation status whenever a new version of the application is installed and run for the first time, and when you sign in to BandLab from within Cakewalk. If you have never signed in to BandLab from within Cakewalk, you will be prompted once to sign in.
