Free copy of Home Studio

https://thesoftware.shop/cakewalk-sonar-home-studio-giveaway/#buy-now

Edit Feb 13th- Deal seems to be still running as per some resent posts.   

 I put this in deals where it belongs but thought I'd share. I know there's been complaints from people who were way behind in Sonar versions so here's a chance to own the latest basic version. Mostly it's the same as Splat but missing a lot of details like Pro Channel. I beefed up my version with other plug ins. It certainly has been rock solid and never crashes.  So here is something free that will put a lot of those other DAW's you've been tempted with in the dust. 
 

It works. I just did it and Home Studio is up and running using offline activation or Command center.  
 
 you copy paste this: 
 
3327-46FD-8F9A-BBC7
 
Here     http://www.cakewalk.com/Redeem?kl=16&promo=CM250
 
Pretty easy. I already have Home Studio so I had to log on with a different account otherwise it didn't work the first time. My other account has nothing in it. Now it has Home Studio , Rapture Session and Big Fish collection.  FREE. 
I have a friend I'm going to set up with this.

Ya that what I have been using my copy for over a year on a W7 laptop I have at work. I run it with asio4all and on board and mess about with midi only. Never has crashed . worked smoothly for me. I added the Air Xpand pak so I'm fully loaded. If it had pro channle you wouldn't even notice it's not splat.

Thanks Cactus Music
Much obliged.
I am a  SPLAT Lifetime Member ( I think ; LOL) 
But I downloaded this program ...at your suggestion..... out of curiosity and instinct .
I Had Home Studio back in the 90s.
Must say I was pleasantly surprised at its quality.
I am contemplating retaining this as my 'Performance Midis' editor.
It is simple and effective.
Stupid question perhaps: Does its operation rely on Online authorization as SPLAT does?
I suspect not.
Cheers......Frank

What are the major differences between this Sonar Home Studio and Cakewalk's Music Creator 7 ?
 
I was just about to get around to installing MC7 on my daughter's computer (bought it real cheap last year) but now I'm wondering if SHS might be a better program to install ?
 
(The link to this offer seems to have disappeared but the link above with redemption code still works).
(Surprisingly, SHS went straight into my Cakewalk products page).

Hey Cactus, do you have to use ASIO4all? I don't have a problem with it, I've fooled around with it in the past and it seems to be fine. but is there a reason you can't use the ASIO in Sonar?

Michael,
 
Drinking my last beer of the day, so may or may not pass on cardinal information.
There should be no limitation in Sonar by design to use the ASIO4all driver. Saddest, worse case scenerio would be trying to wrap a generic motherboard Realtek soundcard driver with ASIO to get a few less millisec of latency. Lipstick on a pig thing.
Otherwise, your specific soundcard may not recognize ASIO4all, but require a hardware specific driver package. Sonar is open minded and up to speed, wanting to harness anything you got on your motherboard or in a Pci slot if the hardware supports it. Problem is likely downstream and nothing to do with any limitation imposed by Sonar.
 
John

Frank- Sadly it uses the same system all versions use now. But there no reason not to use it and what ever happens later happens. Everything I have read from Noel points to we will get our unlock code. Or Sonar will carry on.
 
 
I used my copy of HS for the last year for editing midi tracks I use for backing tracks. So I don't use an audio interface. Of course you use ASIO and a proper interface with Sonar ( or any DAW)  if your recording audio. And even if you are just recording midi you'll always get better performance with ASIO. Asio4all has come a long way and on this little laptop I've noticed nothing out of the ordinary. It's better than WASAPI far as latency performance goes, but latency doesn't matter whan all your doing is editing midi files and playing them. It matters big time when you overdub audio.

I'm using the  ASIO drivers that came with it, with my Steinberg UR-22. Doing midi, works great. I may be able to switch from 8.5 Studio. I'll use it awhile and see which has a better workflow for me. At first blush, it seems that SHS sounds better. Audio Engine, or just that things are not configured exactly the same? That's another thing to determine.
 
Edit: They sound exactly the same, it was the configuring thing.

I have one in my current Cakewalk account, but would like to have a few extra to give to family/friends.

Yes, if you create a new cakewalk account, you can get an additional copy.

I explained this somewhere else bu I'll repeat for those who are not as smart as I am :) 
 
As Abacab mentioned you cannot own multiple copies per Cakewalk account. And even so if you want to give this to someone else they should be using a different cakewalk account. You certainly don't want to be handing out passwords to anybody, even your dog.  
So what you need is 2 things.
Another Cakewalk account, which to create also requires another e mail address. 
Cakewalk accounts are what we use to log on to this forum and you don't need to have ever purchased anything to belong. You can even open an account using your friends name or Bozo the clown, don't matter. 
 
You can have as many copies of this as you have Cakewalk user log ons. I have 3 because I forgot a password and the email I had used was no longer. Later on I found my password That's my johnnyv which is pretty obvious that it's the same person. I also have an alias I created one day just for fun. I leave you to figure that one out :)

This version of Home Studio is exactly the same as using Artist, Pro or Slpat. It is just missing a lot of fancy features but the core program is identical. I have opened plenty of Splat WP files in Home studio and if you have the same VST's it will not even hickup. Pro Channel will be missing most of the plug ins.

One of the reasons why I avoided Pro Channel Plugins as much as possible.

As Pro Channel Plugins are just VST's with a skinned UI you would hope they would just get converted into a standard VST plugin when imported into hosts that do not support Pro Channel, and maybe vice versa.

And then there never was a VST for the Pro Channel EQ.

There's certainly nothing special about them. I only have used the EQ and compressor.  
And so Home Studio has the EQ, but no compressor so big deal, just put it in the good old BIN. 
I find HS will do almost anything I want outside of the Melodyn tricks and drum replacer. 
If you beef it up with your collection of 3rd part and Cakewalk stuff your almost working in the same environment. So what if the synth rack is gone, Cubase doesn't have one either.

Thanks Cactus Music - this really good news for me. I've wanted a stripped down version just for playback from a Laptop and didn't want to save off entire projects in another format. Maybe just export some stem files and a few midi tracks for learning tools for others. Appreciate the link.

Home Studio is limited to 64 tracks, 8 busses, and no patch points or aux tracks.

Ya, there you go,,  I've never gone past 16 tracks, Never had more than 4 busses and Have never needed the aux tracks. 
 
RBH- This is exactly why I bought it a year ago when they first introduced it and it was on sale for $30. 
I was, and am,  planning on trying the Sonar Playlist for live playback of backing tracks. I'm almost there and I have about 60 songs ready but want all 100+ if I can. Sonar PLat has always made me nervous stability wise and is way overkill for this. Home Studio is just perfect.  
I will be using 4 audio outs and midi to trigger my effects. 
So I'm setting up each project with 4 busses. It's a lot more work than I thought it would be as I keep tweaking everything to death....

Thanks, Looks like they extended it. Funny thing is they are giving something away but I don't even know who or what. Seems pointless to give stuff away whithout at least getting our e mail or something. It asks for email or Facebook but I noticed a little timer which then it ran down and by passed that page. I guess I cheated them by posting the redemtion code.

That code is for the Computer Music mag which makes me suspect that as a warez site. I wouldn't give them any info beyond your email address and them filter your account and be wary of opening anything they send you.

It is what is though the serial number is legit.

So, I used the code, redeemed and downloaded it, and have a serial number. Haven't felt a need to install at this time.  Question I have is on activation. Is the SN enough, or do you get a Registration number like the old days, or is it just like the current Splat version?
