Cakewalk has created directxfiles.com, a new site for the growing number of Musicians who
are choosing to create on the Windows platform. It is a site dedicated to
informing these people about the most current real-time audio effects
available in the industry-standard DirectX plug-in format.
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
"Cakewalk is launching this site to show our continuing support for open
standards on the Windows platform," commented Jesse Jost, product manager
"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!
