This be it, folks. Thanks for looking at me and shaking your heads like that.
 
I was first made aware of Cakewalk somewhere around 1991, when I saw a friend using it.  I wasn't impressed, knowing that my standalone Roland MC50mkII hardware sequencer along with my Roland Sound Canvas made the perfect team for making music.  And that's what I did until 1997.
 
In December 1997 I left the music biz, and went on to become a nicely successful Web developer.  Made a ton of $$ over the years.  My biggest conquest was being the exclusive Webmaster for Free Peers, Inc., best known for their P2P software, BearShare.
 
But by 2015 my Web biz was getting dull, and the sound of music was calling to me (had to tell my wife to PLEASE stop watching that movie over and over and over!)
I came back to music, and dusted off my trusty sequencer only to find it didn't work anymore, not to mention there were no Sound Canvas's to be had anywhere, anymore.  What to do what to do...
 
hmmmm..... I remember something about a Cakewalk thingy.  Wonder if it still exists?  ...IT DOES indeed it does!
 
Hence my toes dipped into the waters of Music Creator.  But that wasn't good enough, so I dove into SONAR.  And I never used my hardware sequencer again, except to transfer old MIDIs from 3.5 disks to SONAR for updating and stuff (I did get it working again because I'm that kind of genius).
 
So that's my extremely truncated story, thanks for reading.  And now, my sojourn continues but not here.  See ya at the new place.  I became a Reaper guy after Gibson put the hammer down last year, but I still use Cakewalk for many tasks and projects.  Ya can't get rid of me that easy, as much you might want to.  haha.  Love you, too.
 
Farewell, old forums.  You served many for many years, and you served them well.  Now I wonder who will find this last post amongst the drivel? No matter... it's here until it's not.  Archaeologists will be pleased.
 
*poof*

A Pentium 2 machine, Windows 95, and Soundblaster back when Cakewalk's only product was Guitar Tracks. Never could figure out what that darn piano roll was for. We knew ye when Cakewalk.

Here's my story: I came, forgot what I was doing, looked around and mingled. Been here ever since!
 
And I am pretty sure that by the time Win 95 came out, CW already had Professional and Pro Audio out didn't they?

Could be. They had some sequencer stuff out well before that. All I know is that Guitar Tracks was the first wave audio thing I ever saw by them (or anybody else) at the time. It was constantly advertised in trade magazines, so everybody kind of knew about it. I never could wrap my head around why it had all this midi stuff in it since it was called Guitar Tracks. Guitar players use midi like Captain Picard uses hair styling products. I guess they wanted the software to be all things to all people. I was glad when GT Pro came out because it didn't have midi junk gumming up the works, and I really liked the Portastudio look of the GUI. (Something Sonar could have used in my opinion.)
 
Anyway, my memory isn't that great. All I remember about what I had for breakfast is that it was yellow.
