Q: if one has everything that came with Platinum Lifetime, is there any reason to download and install all the content or will the option "Install Cakewalk only" be all that is needed?  i.e. does the install with "additional content" provide anything we don't have?

Is offline activation still possible with this version?

 
No offline activation today sorry. You have to download and install via BandLab assistant.


 
Noel ... I am a long time Cakewalk user of near 30 years :D .. I have Platinum legacy installed.
 
I like to install my software elsewhere other than Program Files and on another D Drive.
 
I am noticing so far that the Bandlab assistant downloads / installs the New platinum .. without "install where" options.
 
In fact I found the EXE in my downloads folder and tried that. It DOES not allow you to choose an install folder, seems hardwired to:


Application:
C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\Cakewalk Core
 
Shared Components:
C:\Program Files\Cakewalk
 
So will there be a custom install route in the EXE going forward?

PLUS it auto installs the ARTIST(??) INSTRUMENTS .. I have these already via the old Platinum install, can it pick these up?
 
And what about the platinum instruments already installed?

Does this mean they have ported PLATINUM to Mac???

 
Yeah it only took a couple of days... Kidding :-P
No the Mac version of BandLab assistant allows access to the loop content and of course the BandLab Mix editor today.


i hope you're not considering rebooting the codeweavers efforts?

Hi Bandlab Team,
Thank you so much for this wonderful update. I have a quick question.
 
My main music computer is internet-free. Previously I would download updates on my home PC from Cakewalk Command Centre, put the files on a USB and then install it on my music PC. Can I do this with Cakewalk by Bandlab, or do I need to ensure I have internet access to download onto my music PC?

From the way it sounds, you have to have it hooked up directly to the internet. That sucks. I don't have internet at my house at all. I would download the files into my Android and then transmit to my studio computer and do the offline activation thing. Looks like I'll be using my current Splat for the foreseeable future...

My download is extremely slow. Download speed here is 77mb, so the slowness is not on my end. I hope this means a lot of people are downloading.

Can someone list exactly which plugins/instruments/ProChannel modules are included with the basic installation? Like was clearly visible on Cakewalk's feature comparison page?
 
If I own Platinum, and don't install it (i.e. on a fresh Windows installation) can I still include what's missing somehow? Or do I have to use command centre to install an entire copy of Platinum and all plugins/instruments, then install Cakewalk by Bandlab?

As I said, I got installation errors.  Got an error that says the installation files are corrupt, however, It is stuck on "installing."  How do I reinstall?  Whenever I bring up the assistant, it just says installing.

The download was interrupted once at 73%.  Restarted and completed on 2nd attempt.  There were no options for a download path, or installation path.  The downloaded file does end up in my download folder.  I will try a bit later to port this over to my other computer, rather than redownloading it.

Installation here was pain and error free.  It recognizes that Sonar software is already on this computer and asks about migrating settings which seemed to happen without a hitch - looks uber familiar.  Time will tell...

Correct .. it installs into c:program files whether you like it or not, no custom option. The downloaded EXE in your downloads folder does not give custom options either.

It also downloads and force installs the ARTIST INSTRUMENT file, even if it was already installed via your legacy platinum.

Rebooting did resolve the "stuck installation" for me.  Attempting again.  Wondering if I should have just installed Cakewalk, rather than Cakewalk With Additional Content.  Is that just installing 2nd copies of everything I already have?

I'd like to know what the "Additional Content" is, and what's included/missing when choosing "Install Cakewalk only"

The EXTRA Content options downloads an INSTRUMENTS.EXE file ( near 1GB ins size ) to your downloads folder and installs. It seems to be ARTIST INSTRUMENTS that came with Platinum legacy which you probably have already installed

Hi all.
I downloaded the program that was stated free. It is still getting the plugins arranged. But.........................
I have a few questions.
 1.  Wasn't the company name Cakewalk. I see Cakewalk as Daw. I thought that only the software was bought and not the company.
 
Danny



They bought all the intellectual property including the trademark "Cakewalk" , they didn't buy the company Cakewalk LLC

I can confirm that as well.  The additional content is the Artist stuff.  If you have either Artist or Plat, you do NOT need to download that. Save yourself a 1GB dl.

Does this mean that my existing version of Platinum will be unaffected? That this version will run along side the existing DAW? I may not get the chance to download before the weekend, but I'll try, maybe tomorrow evening. Thank you Meng and everyone at Bandlab for making this happen.

My legacy Platinum is still set to INFINITE .. However my new Bandlab Platinum is set to 4/10/2018.
 
BUT, post Bandlab platinum install, I have not rebooted windows yet, so I wonder will that change the infinite date!

Installed without a glitch for me. The download was a bit slow (250K), but I guess the server is being hammered.
 
Fired it up, and it's basically SPLAT which is what I expected. No issues so far :)

Plantinum is still there for me, and still works fine, however... I started SPLAT and changed some of the categories of some of my plugins. When I went to do the same in BL Cakewalk it was already done for me, which leads me to believe it's sharing SPLAT's registry settings or config files.
 
Something to keep in mind.
