The world's leading DAW SONAR with full SONAR Platinum functionality resumes as Cakewalk by BandLab BandLab Technologies launched Cakewalk by BandLab, replacing SONAR, the iconic DAW developed by Cakewalk Inc. This highly anticipated product release follows BandLab Technologies' announcement last month that it has acquired all of Cakewalk's intellectual assets and several other assets from Gibson Brands. The refurbished DAW includes all the core premium features of SONAR Platinum, such as the award-winning Skylight user interface, flexible ProChannel modules and a powerful 64-bit audio engine. Cakewalk by BandLab is a version of SONAR Platinum that does not include some third-party products and content bundles. Existing users who have already purchased packages or selected third-party products and plugins can still use those products in Cakewalk by BandLab.
