Spam filter got the last one.


A remarkable milestone has been reached by online music-making service BandLab, which tells us it now has 5 million members, and counting. It's been a busy year for the company during which amongst many other things it took ownership of Cakewalk. Here's what they told us about their year.
  • People are interested in creating music online: BandLab's reached 5 million registered users.
  • Word is travelling fast: our app has been downloaded in over 180 countries (the latest BandLab pin in the map is New Zealand)!
  • We've been growing, fast: BandLab started in 2015 with 1,000 users. In July 2016, it was 50,000 users. By July 2017 we hit 1.5 million. We've more than tripled out user base in less than 1.5 years.
  • It's not just about registrations: 2 million songs are being created on our platform every month – that's over one song created on BandLab every two seconds.
Next up: BandLab 8.0 releasing in January! New features will include Real-time Looper effects, Mastering on Mobile and Creator Kits.

Click on Meng's post announcing the new forum, https://discuss.cakewalk.com/index.php?/topic/50-welcome-to-the-new-forum/ then click on the BandLab Technologies link, https://bandlabtechnologies.com/ and you'll see the BandLab umbrella is quickly expanding.
BandLab purchased US based magazine, Rolling Stone, https://www.rollingstone.com/ some time ago.  Two UK magazines, MusicTech https://musictech.net and Guitar, https://guitar.com/ were added in October, 2018.
BandLab also owns two guitar lines, Heritage Guitars (former Gibson Michigan factory) and Harmony, as well as an instrument design studio, Mono, Japanese pedal manufacturer Teisco and the online and far east music store, Swee Lee.
Finally, in addition to the 5 million strong online platform BandLab is getting into audio interface design and manufacturing with the Link line of audio interfaces.  https://www.bandlab.com/machines/link-analog
While BandLab seems to be focused around social community, music education and guitars I will not be surprised to read that BandLab has added a keyboard manufacture to their catalog.
