Total music production with full VST support.

With Cakewalk Home Studio Version 2 you don't have to depend on anyone else to get your music recorded--you can do it all from your PC. There is no better Windows software available for musicians taking the step into the world of digital recording.

This update to Home Studio 2004 contains the Cakewalk VST Adapter for full support of VST effects and instruments. With realtime DirectX effects, DXi and ReWire software synths, MIDI plug-ins, ACID-format audio loop technology, and the ability to record and mix unlimited audio and MIDI tracks with realtime effects, Home Studio takes your music farther, faster--for less money.

ReWire support means easy integration of Home Studio Version 2 with Project5, Reason, and other ReWire synths, as well as easier soft synth implementation across the board. Your recordings will sparkle with 24-bit/96kHz audio conversion quality and you can simultaneously record your whole band with your multichannel audio card.

Drum tracks are more fun and intuitive thanks to a click and drag interface, paint-style tools, and the logical layout Drum Editing Grid.

When you're ready to distribute your project, you've got Pyro Express CD maker and WAV ripper. And there's support for all Windows-compatible audio hardware through WDM, MME, or ASIO.

Great but not the best

By Anonymous

This recording software is a great buy, but you get what you pay for also. For one thing, it's hard at times to understand what you are doing. There isnt really a "go to" guide if you get lost during layering. Also, unless you have a expensive mic, I wouldn't suggest expecting real studio sound.On the upside tho, this is a great layer recorder for 100 bucks, and is fun and fairly easy to work with.


Not for the beginner, has many computer bugs

I recently purchased the Homestudio XL software. I can not begin to tell you how disappointed I am to have bought this product. This software is not a beginner's software. Does not have a decent tutorial, which cheaper softwares such as ROXIO or voytera do. This program has more bugs in it than a bathroom of a gas station! As far as i'm concerned i have thrown away my money, and once you open it you can't return it. Save your money! buy something else!


Average or Below Features - NO Support!

I own Home Studio 2004 which looks like it's last year's version of Home Studio 2. (I think)FEATURES: It does have realtime effects, but you are limited on the total, so, you may not be able to add EQ or reverb, etc., to all of the channels you want.It DOESN?T have ability to work directly on the wave like Sound Forge or several other products. This severely limits your ability to fix a couple volumes problem or bad notes on an otherwise good track.QUALITY: It gives average results on sound. Too bad this product only worked for 1 year. I installed it on 12/26/2003. It worked thru 12/23/2004. I tried using it on 12/26/04 and it had severe latency problems that I haven?t been able to resolve. It makes me think there is some kind of 1 year license issue since nothing on my PC changed.SUPPORT: There?s no rating for support, but I give Cakewalk a 0! They don?t have a toll free number. I called their support line and was put on hold for a long time and never got to talk to a REAL person! I sent them an email describing the problem and also let them know about their poor phone service including all details they needed. I?ve waited almost a week now and have received NO Response.I will not purchase Cakewalk products again because of their lack of support! I was wanting to upgrade to something that had more features (including the ability to work directly on the wave to fix minor problems. Fix volume, normalize, copy/paste, etc.), but I will be buying a product from a different manufacturer next time.
