Announcing the Cakewalk by BandLab Early Access Program

Recommended Posts

We're happy to announce the Cakewalk by BandLab Early Access Program! 

The Early Access Program (EAP) provides pre-release versions of Cakewalk to the public prior to an official release. EAP releases are mature, beta-tested and feature complete. If you participate, you benefit by trying out the latest updates and providing feedback to help improve the quality of an official release. This program helps us by providing greater real world exposure prior to an official release, which is particularly helpful for large releases.

EAP is currently active! 

Cakewalk 2019.07 is currently available as our first Early Access release. Participation is easy and 100% voluntary. If you'd like to participate, follow the EAP subforum and download the latest EAP installer here:

 Early Access Program subforum 

Please read the EAP guidelines prior to installing  Early Access software. 

Thanks in advance for your interest!
The Bakers

I'll wait for the regular update! But in the meantime... is there any chance that the Bandlab will ever try to update the Cakewalk staff view?

I've been a cakewalk user since around 1995! I had Cakewalk 3.0! The Staff view has not changed since then! And it sucks. I even paid for the lifetime updates when "SONAR" offered it.. was that Gibson? Anyway, I spent thousands of dollars over the years on Cakewalk products, and I really appreciate that it's free now. But...

You can't print out a readable chart from a Cakewalk staff unless it's a nursery rhyme song like Camptown Races.

Cubase has amazing, beautiful looking scores with evenly spaced, readable charts that you can print and use, and they've had it for decades. I find Cubase awful in every other way and I'll stick with Cakewalk because I love it, but PLEASE! 

UPDATE the staff view so it makes nice adjustable sheet music we can print out and use! A lot of us would REALLY appreciate it.

While I see your point, there are already excellent standalone products geared to printing sheet music.

Cakewalk needs a better staff view for editing and viewing notes on the screen. Many users would rather see resources devoted to that. Search the forum, there have  been many discussions of the topic.
