Way To (Legally) Obtain Sonar Home Studio

Post by Jim_Fogle » Sat Dec 09, 2017 3:41 pm

I was in the process of saving money to obtain Cakewalk's Sonar Home Studio when Gibson decided to close the business and the online store.

Prior to the closing Cakewalk made an agreement with the United Kingdom magazine, Computer Music, for the magazine to offer download links for Home Studio and other, additional content for a limited time.

I purchased a digital copy of the magazine through the UK version of Zinio, followed the instructions on pages 5 and 65 of the magazine and was able to download and activate Home Studio. The magazine indicates the offer is valid until February 18, 2018 however at least two people on the Cakewalk Sonar forum indicated they were unable to obtain a download. One of the two later indicated they acquired the program after closely reading and following instructions.

I can testify that it helps to have a Cakewalk account and to have the account web page open prior to entering the 16 character redemption code. The second advice is to manually enter the redemption code instead of trying to cut and paste the code.

I thought I'd let the forum know in case anyone is interested. The link to purchase the digital magazine is below.
