At this point I would safely say that 98% of the people who have used Cakewalk for a long time and have been through upgrades going back to versions like Sonar 6 and 8.5, the X1 fiasco then Splat--- have by now "Upgraded" to the Bandlab version. And 98% of those folks did this without issue fuss or worrying about the world coming to an end.
Nothing will happen to SPlat or to 8.5 for that matter. They just stay put as they always were.
Cakewalk has always come out with new versions about once a year. Those have always been NEW version that coexist with the older versions. There is a huge difference between an Upgrade and an Update with all software. Updates are the ones that overwrite the original. In most cases this can be rolled back.
Upgrades usually cost money, Updates are usually free.
This is an Upgrade that just happens to be free.
And it is by no means the Home Studio version, That comment was sort of out of turn.
It is fully the Platinum version feature wise. The only relationship to Home Studio is that it comes with a stripped down VST collection. This is because they cannot give away for free things like Melodyn and Addictive drums.
