Cakewalk Express Software Reviews
CompUSA- I don't remember it was bought at least a year ago. It's a keyboard recording/other stuff device. And I'm not sure what version it is either. On the CD it has a copyright of 1999. It's relatively new but I don't think it is the express 8. (I've seen clips and I'm pretty sure those screens aren't in the one I have) but then again- maybe I'm wrong. I would think that this version came before #8 and #8 has all of the same features but some new things. I wouldn't bother buying it because I'm happy with this one and it seems sufficient but I recommend to get the newest one. Here is some info on this one- the Cakewalk Express:
You can print out or view music you wrote so you can play them at another time in case you forget what to play if you are just memorizing it. You don't want to forget something you wrote after bragging about how good it is to your friends. It is pretty embarrassing. For the most part, recording is very accurate. It displays what note has been played on the screen on a bar line. It helps when teaching yourself how to play each note (if you have previous experience of reading music). Also it's a good idea to have a keyboard with a MIDI port and to have the slot on your computer. This is the only KEYBOARD recording program I have bought and will be sufficient to use for anything (this one only works with keyboard, I think- not sure) so I'll probably buy a guitar one somewhere along the road but the chances are good that it will be Cakewalk. Cakewalk has pulled through once again.Cakewalk Express rated this unit on 2001-06-30.
