Thank you Gibson for killing Sonar (sarcasm intended)

    I've been using this great Windows-only digital audio workstation (DAW) software for many years and loved it. Now Gibson, after buying in in 2013, is sundowning it.

    Cakewalk - Announcement
  2. I can't figure out Gibson these days.

    They seem to be completely oblivious to reality.

    i haven't kept up with gibson (per ZenG 's post), but i always thought cakewalk was a preferred DAW by many. i hate to see a reduction in competition, generally.

    I was using Creative's Audigy 2 zs Platinum for my DAW. Just rebuilt my PC with a motherboard that is PCIe and it's not compatible with the Audigy system. Looking for a replacement system that will allow me to plug my bass and drum machine into it like I could with the Audigy. Anyone with some ideas I could research?:cool:

    You're going to see Gibson getting out of most if not ALL of their business ventures that aren't musical instruments. Pretty much all the companies that are like this - accessories, software, etc. are money-losers for them. They buyers are going to axe all that stuff, and in a business sense, they must.

    Henry got a dose of reality when Gibson went bankrupt and he was bought out. Blame him.
