Cakewalk was a MIDI sequencer developed by Twelve Tone Systems, Inc. (the company now known as Cakewalk) originally for DOS, starting with version 1.0 in 1987 [http://createdigitalmusic.com/2007/11/12/interview-cakewalk-founder-greg-hendershott-20-years-on/] , and later for Windows. Cakewalk for DOS, up until version 4.0, required an MPU-401 MIDI interface card operating in intelligent mode, while later versions relied on UART mode only. Cakewalk was delivered in two versions, Cakewalk Pro and Cakewalk Express. The latter was a lite version limited to 25 tracks and 1 MIDI output port. The express version was sometimes bundled with hardware such as a sound card. Cakewalk was a purely MIDI based sequencer, although it could trigger WAV files at certain points, audio support was not seriously supported until the advent of Cakewalk Pro Audio when true support for digitized audio was added.

Features

The most recent version of the product features a piano roll editor, support for limited music notation and a built-in scripting language called CAL (Cakewalk Application Language). [ [http://www.cakewalk.com/DevXchange/CAL.asp Cakewalk DevXchange - CAL ] ] Cakewalk is a predecessor of SONAR which has nearly all of the same features, including support for CAL, currently being the only major DAW on the market supporting a scripting language.

Cakewalk has had piano roll and CAL support since the Win16 Version 3.01.
