In general it makes me sad when I read how people react to someone who is¬†desperate!¬†ūüėĘ Most of the comments above are¬†misplaced IMHO. There is almost no helpful comment in such threads! Where is the helpful, positive spirit that some of you talk about? I cannot¬†identify something like that above! It reminds me more of the Middle Adges when people where calling to cut off the head of the¬†accused! But YMMV!

IMHO constructively written posts get constructively written answers.  This was not the case. YMMV also.

Exactly. The reality is that this is one of the most helpful forums ever. I don't understand how it has avoided TFS (toxic forum syndrome), but hey, I'll take it!

How it avoided TFS? It's because of us! :D

This forum is at least 20-40% more helpful than most forums! (I don't even remember the origin of that joke anymore... ūüėÜ)

The OP wasn't asking for help. He was attention whoring. "Look at me! Look at me! I wanna tell everyone that this program sucks and I'm getting rid of it 'cause I found something better!"

Like he wants everyone to validate his choice or something.

 

When people come here asking for help, they typically get it.

When people come here attention whoring - being whiny-***** little bit**es - they typically  get what they came here for too: attention. Negative attention.

Been a Cakewalk user since Cakewalk DOS. After Cakewalk shut it down, I was given a discount to cross-grade to Digital Performer. I never like digital Performer. It was hard for me, to do projects, and a few months or years later I was rescued by Bandlab. I do a lot of animation with iClone, so I went up to 128GB RAM motherboards, and a i7 -6900 CPU. I notice the difference in animation programs, but not any improvement with Cakewalk or any updates. The only problem I had Cakewalk fixed it, then the next update, it was back, was the loop my drum tracks. after a few minutes in the songs, instead of the notes starting at .000, I was getting crazy numbers .457, and so forth. When Bandlab took over that was solved.  I've been using a Motu 24AO, since it came out and with two DACS, I was able to have 16 analog inputs, and 40 analog outputs to my 32 ch. mixer. Before the 24AO, I was using 2- 1010LT cards, and it gave me 16 channels of audio output from Cakewalk, but they never made a good Win 10 driver. 3 years ago, I bought the fastest CPU then, a Ryzen 9-3900X, used the 128 RAM. Cakewalk got worst, after an update, 4 minutes into a song, it would drop out even at the highest buffer settings. I saw where background programs, and formatting drives would stop it, so I took them all out. I re-loaded Bandlab to a clean install. My CPU would normally run at lower than 3%. Then after 4 minutes it would start climbing up to 8% activity and crap and spike out. Last November when I was able to transfer the 3900x to a 5950X, things got worst instead of better. You could barely see the CPU activity, under one percent. The final straw was last Thursday, when I had a simple two channel drum track. And recorded a vocal mono track for the first time in years, It, stopped recording within 15 seconds. This is after I bought faster memory. The drum track sounded tinny at some parts though. I remember two months ago, I opened my last version of Cakewalk, still on my machine. But I couldn't save the project, because they said I didn't buy it and I did. My songs seem to work fine, no 4 minutes plus problem. Before Bandlab, I was using 24-34 tracks of audio, and Midi with no problems on some songs. I bought an upgrade Digital Performer 9 a few years back, to buy muti-channel tracks of hit records from Mix the Music. I look at most of the DAW software on YouTube, and was ready to but DP11, until I saw how bad the GUI looked, and you couldn't use two screens. I finally settled on software from company beginning with a "M", and the software starts with a "S".  This is my second day to use it, in February I had 846 plug-ins, now down to 623. I changed the software directory to all the paths where the VST files are. And it loaded VST files, that Cakewalk would not work with anymore. Clon Ensemble, was my most important one. I can never find anything like it. I had since 2004. This program and others have free trial periods. I can two recording with it that would make me sound like a real group of people.  I was also getting some ringing on Bandlab, with two channel drums. I even lowered my audio interface to 44.1 kHz, 16 bits, but it still dropped out, With the new software I imported 18 tracks of audio at 48kHz X 16, and it worked on a 9 minute song, every time. I was sort of reluctant to purchase it today, because another software was bragging about it had now had comping recording, and I just started using Comp recording 6 years ago. I was happy this other software has comp recording also. With 18 tracks of audio playing, the CPU was around 2% max, the drives "0". I just wouldn't believe it was the software. Good luck with your projects to everyone. Almost 40 years of using Cakewalk has come to a end.  

What is your question ?

Hey, can we just let this thread die. Or can a Moderator lock it. The OP is long gone.  

To me it's a bit frustrating that these threads get way more attention than people asking for help.

But there is value in reading these threads.

Not only are they good reading, but maybe they should be required reading before someone posts an "I'm¬†done with Cakewalk!!!!!" post.¬† ūüėȬ†

The point of a response to this kind of thread is NOT primarily for the OP, it's just gravy if they respond. It's for all the people who are considering the same thing, but then they read a post, and they think "hmmm, I remember someone saying Intel has a free utility that will check your computer and make sure you have the latest drivers...maybe I should do that." And then they live happily ever after.

It's all good.

I just wish that people had stopped the OP bashing.  For me, the added bashing just added fuel to the fire that had been pissed on and was mostly put out just so the fire could could be rekindled.

Help on what? What help is he actually seeking? It's not clear if he wants help or not. His first complaint is about Digital Performer and then strawberry ice cream?¬†ūü§Ē¬†not completely sure.¬†

I agree. This thread has run its course and is unlikely to change gears into something helpful. Time to let it die.
