This version is as good as this line of product could be right now. Effects auditioning function could be improved. You can't change settings during live audition.

Price paid

$400+/-

Easy to use for anyone with basic audio knowledge. Good help section. Good shortcut keys. No one actually reads the manual because most questions can be answered through help.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The overall sound quality is cleaner than every PC audio applictaion I've used. It's also a hotter sound. The MIDI sounds are not so good. It's typical General MIDI stuff, but you can get great sound fonts. Midi effects are better than before and better than average. Effects made by Cakewalk aren't too good.

Quality is ok. If you want to run a lot of tracks or multiple applications you need a lot of CPU power, memory etc. Audio can be saved automatically so that it won't be lost in a blackout or power failure, projects can be easily reassembled.

OVERALL OPINION

I think this is great for any project, home, or hip-hop studio. Get Reason and Rewire and you won't need ProTools for anything.
