cakewalk professional 2.0 for windows 3.1 (1993)




as far as i can tell it looks like they are using "cakewalk professional for windows v1.0" which is from early 1992 or late 1991.

you pretty much have to have a 386 or 486 vintage computer with an mpu-401 compatible interface
with the next cakewalk for windows versions 3+4 they made it easier + more compatible with other non-mpu-401 interfaces for example voyetra, sound blaster etc any midi interface not 100% mpu-401 compatible is more compatible with cakewalk as of version 3.0 + up

err my last response i think i got confused between the windows + dos versions of cakewalk
the windows versions are for windows 3.x i believe.. untill it gets up to about version 6+ then it will be win95-win98 i think

u should be ok as long as u use on the right hardware + os
the right hardware being a 386/486 or a pentium 1/2
pIII + p4 might be ok too
