    There is nothing new about these.. Roland had these years ago..

    Joe, Roland now owns cakewalk (or at least they own a very large part of cakewalk) so now all the failed/obsolete products Roland had lying around will now be rebranded under the Cakewalk brand and sold as something ‘new.’ Not a bad idea on their part since Cakewalk has many loyal fanboys who are too naive to realize they’re being taken for suckers. Cakewalk was strictly a software company, but once Roland started buying into the company, they’ve started releasing hardware…. all the bad ideas that Roland has had since their inception. I wonder if they’re going to give up on the Edirol brand and change over completely to the Cakewalk brand.

    Cakewalk jumped the shark a long time ago, I stopped upgrading at Sonar v4, and it’s up to v8 now with no significant innovation, just more bloatware like CD burning, bad crippleware synths and similar junk. I’ve made Reaper my primary sequencer, which has lots more neato features at 1/100th the size.
