You've just bought a 64 bit i7 DAW. You play piano, and you've always used Cake sequencers.
So you download the demo 64 bit version of Cake, which just happens to be Sonar 8.5.
You figure it will be like the old days: just get the piano plugins in the right directories and right click on the fx effects button, or otherwise load the soft synth.
No.... more like fighting for 2 days through poorly written online manuals simply to get this so-called midi sequencer to play a simple midi file via a piano sample.
Yes, I finally figured it out.... but I'm opening up my old Cubase sx software with the pathetic dongle, which can't be used now, and asking myself... is there anything else out there?
I mean, what a nightmare....
