Cakewalk (the successor of SONAR, full name: Cakewalk by BandLab) is a very classic and popular audio production platform in the world, also one of the most complete music production packages, contains all the tools that composers and musicians need to make music. It was originally developed by Twelve Tone Systems from America, later acquired by BandLab Technologies from Singapore. With it, you can write songs, edit audios, record tracks, produce master tapes, and successfully complete the creation of music.

As a fairly complete and powerful Digital Audio Workstation, Cakewalk is specially designed for a variety of music producers (e.g. : musicians, composers, arrangers, audio production engineers, multimedia system and game developers, recording engineers). More than just an integrated, scalable platform for MIDI and digital audio creation, Cakewalk can also serve as the central nervous system for a recording studio. It retains all the core functions of its predecessor SONAR, and can complete the whole working process of music production from pre-MIDI production to post-audio recording, mixing, burning, etc.

Although Cakewalk became a free DAW program after being acquired by BandLab Technologies in 2018, there is not any limit in functionality and the number of tracks is unlimited. And, its audio engine is the same 64-bit engine as SONAR used before, it supports the Audio Random Access technology for seamless synchronization with Melodyne, and supports the loading of VST (Virtual Studio Technology) instruments and special effects plug-ins.
