Re: [AUDITORY] Successor to Cakewalk

Hi, Ian,
   I guess the program 'Cakewalk' worked for you at Windows XP.  
  If this is the case, you can use 'Windows XP mode' under Windows 7 to solve your problem.
 Google 'windows xp mode windows 7 download',

Hello List,

I am a graduate student studying music cognition and have been tasked with finding a suitable replacement for the program, Cakewalk.  Our lab has used it for past experiments but now our PC is being upgraded to Windows 7 which, to my knowledge, does not support Cakewalk.  I understand that SonarX2 is the current software in the Cakewalk family, but it seems that it may not be right for our purposes.  What we liked about Cakewalk was the ease of use and intuitive controls.  It made designing and presenting stimuli very straightforward as it could create playlists of customized music samples.  Also, users were able to adjust very specific qualities of individual pitches which was a useful characteristic.   

Is anyone familiar with Cakewalk and able to recommend a more up-to-date replacement?  Might SonarX2 be the best option?

Thank you,
Ian Colley
