This is Cakewalk's "software studio".
It lets you do a lot of the same stuff as Sonar but seems heavily tailored to electronic, loop- and pattern-based music.
Please contact me if you have tips or comments you would like me to post on here.
I bought Project 5 on 2005-05-11 for $209.
I was already a registered Sonar user, so I probably got a discount.
My intention was to use it with my laptop, which would be a secondary "music station".
The laptap wasn't connected to my Triton or any other external sound module, so I needed to use soft synths.
Although Sonar came with some simple soft synths (e.g., TTS-1),
I figured that Project 5's synths would sound better because they were one of its main "selling points".
Well, so much for that idea.
When I got Project 5, I tried very hard to like it and learn it.
However, I found myself getting irritated at the way its interface pushed me towards creating short loops and patterns
rather than letting me perform and easily edit long jams, which is what I often did with Sonar.
I also wished Project 5 could let me create more keymaps.
I found myself wishing over and over that Project 5 could be more like Sonar.
So I eventually gave up and switched to using Sonar on the laptop.
Bye bye, Project 5.
Maybe some day I'll try Project 5 again.
I don't know.
I'll update this page if I do.
