Please Update The CbB "Getting Started Guide"

Recommended Posts

Open the Cakewalk by BandLab DAW, select "Help" in the menu and then "Getting Started Guide" to open this webpage:  https://help.cakewalk.com/hc/en-us/categories/360000226093-Getting-Started.

The webpage does an excellent job of answering important questions existing DAW users or people familiar with the product name might have during the ownership transition so I'm not suggesting to eliminate the webpage.  I just believe the webpage information deserves a different name as it offers little advice on getting started with Cakewalk.

The majority of the bulleted information describes tasks a user must accomplish to acquire the DAW file.  The tasks described in many of the webpage bullets (open a BandLab account, download and install BandLab Assistant, install and open the program) would have been performed by a user prior to having the ability to click on the Help menu link.

One suggestion is to rename the help link and webpage to "Frequently Asked Ownership Transition Questions" and remove the last three bullet points from the webpage.

The second suggestion is to redirect the "Getting Started Guide" link to CakeTV's Sonar University homepage:  https://www.cakewalk.com/CakeTV/SONAR-University.

This link is going to become increasingly important to the success of Cakewalk by BandLab as it attracts users with little to no DAW experience.
