And, as I expected ... the Cakewalk "store" is slow as hell.


But, but . . . they said:



Q: Should I wait to download SONAR X1 when the volume of people will be less?
 
A: No. We have revamped the download system to scale up if required to handle the volume. The amount of people downloading SONAR X1 will not affect your download time.

I think the "download servers" are hosted in a different place/server set than the store.
 
The Cakewalk store is one of the worst places on Earth lol. 
  
It's already a big mess.   To say it's slow would be a dramatic understatement.
 
 


The download is coming along at max speed here. The store wasn't that bad either, for the amount of volume there must be now. I was through in six minutes. Looks like Cake thought ahead and got scaled bandwidth.

If you think Cake's store is slow, compare with the NI sale a couple weeks back - their servers were completely down for 3 of 5 days of their sale and super slow the following two. I didn't even bother it was so bad, and NI lost my purchase for not doing the right thing and thinking ahead.

It says something about 30-45 minutes to get the SN, but I got mine pretty much right away.

Well you got more lucky than some of us so far.

I got the SN#s just now, and the downloads are going well, so it's not all bad news at least.

I had to chase after them to get my 8.5 serial so I guess I should have expected to have to wait until morning and chase after them again.

I could have been in bed an hour ago! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I am one of the people who bought the upgrade in the first week of November. I have waited five weeks to buy the boxed version. I have HughesNet because I live in the boons, subject to FAP after 375MB of download, so I can't download the massive files and need the boxed version. So I added the boxed version and the store would not let me check out. Sure, it gave it to me for $29.99, but I could not check out. I got a message that says “An item in your cart requires further validation” when I tried to check out. Andrew, why wait until the night of the release to tell us that was how this would work? And I have changed nothing in my account since 8.5 was shipped to me last month, so who knows.

  Anyway, I tried to add both to see if I could check out. Sure enough, it would let me check out then! Obviously, as Andrew put it, you need to buy both at once. I don't need to buy a second copy of SONAR X1 just so I can get the boxed.  Cakewalk, how about a little help for a customer since Pro Audio 6?

Not that one.
The one with the link to upgrade.

Do I have to purchase first?

I thought people who bought 8.5 after 11/1/10 are supposed to get a special email with a download link?

Am I wrong about this?

Nope, you're right. If you bought 8.5 after Nov 1, you get a free upgrade to X1. As long as you registered your product, you should be getting an email. That being said, I haven't received an email yet.

Hey all,

Looks like we just had a minor hiccup in the store initially (which was slowing things down) but all should be better now.

Also the downloads themselves should be pretty fast, depending of course on your connection.

Enjoying the X1 launch party,
Brandon

I may have missed the info elsewhere but - am I correct in assuming with 8.5PE installed I don't need to download the Beatscape, DimPro (except the new expansion) and additional content lumps?

You are correct sir. If you already have Beatscape and Dimension Pro you don't need to d/l and install those.

Might want to d/l them anyway though at some point just to have.

Still no email here for us free updaters. Anyone get it yet? (Not expecting a chorus of replies since anyone who did get it won't be hanging around here any more!)


Emails to those who qualify for the free update will go out tomorrow. Sorry for the wait, but it won't be long.
