Cakewalk Project5 Version 2

Of all the software I’ve reviewed, this has the biggest disconnect between how it specs out on paper versus the actual experience of using it. Project5 Version 2 (P5-2 for short) does linear audio recording, MIDI recording and editing, ReWire, automation, supports loops and virtual instruments, and comes with a bunch of useful plug-ins and instruments. But so far, that could just as easily describe Sonar, Cubase, Live, Acid, etc. (and if P5-2 wasn’t PC-only, Digital Performer and Logic too).
