Cakewalk v4.0E DOS (1992) IBM MIDI Sequencer

i believe version 4.0 + 5.0 were more "important" to musicians because they supported the early/mid 90s MIDI interfaces whereas the other earlier versios of cakewalk were limited to working with the late80s interfaces that were Roland MPU-401 compatible.

vanilla 4.0 is from (1990)
keep in mind that the cakewalk for DOS + cakewalk for WINDOWS are two seperate products at different locations on the cakewalk timeline

Sorry, this is not really a game, and in some ways somebody could perceive it as oldwarez... but it really is abandoned by Twelve Tone Systems (now Cakewalk); they don't sell or in any way acknowledge their glorious DOS past. From what I understand, THEY don't even have it anymore.

It has taken me years to track this down; I bought a boxed copy from a garage sale, which is the only one I've seen, ever! Please help keep it available. This is Cakewalk Professional 4 for DOS, the last version (the last Cakewalk 4 for DOS before Cakewalk 5 for DOS, that is).

There's also the less usable 3.0:
