What Is The Difference Between Cakewalk And Bandlab's Mix Editor?

Question

I Am Starting To Get Interest On Cakewalk, But I Already Made A Composition Made From Bandlab's Mix Editor And I Am A Beginner To Music Composition. What Is The Difference Between The Two And It's Easy To Use? By The Way, I Just Joined The Forums, So Forgive Me If I Already Break One Of The Rules Here.

First, welcome to the forum and to Cakewalk by BandLab or CbB for short.

I should mention I know more about Cakewalk by BandLab than I do about BandLab itself.  That is because I have been using predecessors to Cakewalk for many years but have not investigated BandLab much so I am not very familiar with the online product.

One difference between BandLab's online product and CbB is BandLab is an online service while CbB is offline.  As an online product BandLab is bound to the internet so if there is no internet there is no product to play with.  But, when there is an internet connection you can access BandLab using any device with a Chrome browser.  Likewise all files are stored online or in the cloud.  If you do not have an internet connection you can not access your files.  Cakewalk by BandLab exists on Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10 64 bit laptop or desktop computers as a standalone program.  As a standalone program the internet is not needed.  Files are stored offline and in storage maintained by your computer.  The BandLab Assistant facilitates file transfers between the internet and the standalone program to provide a method to authorize and update the program.

If I remember correctly BandLab is limited to 12 tracks.  Cakewalk by BandLab has no built-in track limit.   That's all I can think of right now.  I'll let some other users chime in.

@Jim Fogle Gave a really good in-depth explanation.

In summary, Bandlab's mix editor is an online sharing program with limited features, Cakewalk by Bandlab is a professional full fledged DAW.

I Will Download The Cakewalk Since It Is Offline Compatibility For BandLab, Plus There Is A Tutorial Section On The Forms.

Thanks For Welcoming Me To The Forum And Helping Out!
