Not only is it a site geared towards the user, but it is also acting as a place for developers of audio software. Software developers are being presented with a "wizard" for creating DirectX plug-ins, it's downloadable and free.
"Cakewalk is launching this site to show our continuing support for open standards on the Windows platform," commented Jesse Jost, product manager for Cakewalk.
"We chose to create a site for DirectX plug-ins that is separate from the Cakewalk site ( www.cakewalk.com), because DirectX isn't about Cakewalk; but instead it involves dozens of the industry's leading audio software companies and hundreds of available DirectX audio plug-ins. The main point is to promote all of the plug-ins available in the DirectX standard, not just Cakewalk's plug-ins."
Sounds to me like Cakewalk really is taking the consumer into it's thoughts, offering it's users a easy way to get things done. Personally I like it, I like the way they are taking the initiative to help out the masses.
Keep it up Cakewalk!
