Cakewalk Project5 Version 2

Version 2 of Project5 updates this popular soft synth environment with a higher performance engine and full multi-track audio recording. There are new keyboards added to the already large assortment in ver 1. There's PSYN II, a subtractive synthesizer and the first rgc:audio-engineered multimode sampling keyboard for Cakewalk.
Immediately noticeable to ver 1 users is the streamlined user interface with a much more intuitive 'gestalt.' I found it much easier to use the new per-track pattern triggering and the dynamic arpeggiator--both very unique to Cakewalk and this ver 2 system. Other very good ideas are the in-track automation and Cakewalk's perfected 'freeze' mode.
The real-time, per-track pattern triggering pads have been fully integrated into Project5 with drag-drop between song arrangement and Multipad and the ability to populate cells with audio clips and MIDI patterns without any disruption to the audio engine's operation. Loop Reconstruction has 'per-slice' control of pitch, pan, and gain for radical loop designs that would normally require hours of extra work in other systems. You can rearrange and nudge slices, export new ACID loops, seamless drag-drop rearrangement and then export new ACID loops.
Project5 Version 2 is $429 MSRP U.S. and is scheduled for release in April 2005. Customers that purchase full retail packages of Project5 Version 1 or 1.5 after February 1, 2005 will receive a free upgrade to Project5 Version 2 directly from Cakewalk.
