>From what I understand, most professional recording and sequencing work is
done using Protools (www.digidesign.com). There is a free version (ProTools
Free) that allows 8 audio channels and some number of MIDI channels - pretty
cool, I have run it on my Powerbook. Another pro alternative is Steinberg
Cubase VST (www.steinberg.de).

While it's entirely possibly, how are you sure?

Also, Cakewalk is awfully unsophisticated compared to any number of
dedicated sequencers you can find by walking into your local Guitar Center,
never mind the kind of stuff that Mannheim Steamroller or other groups that
make their living via sequenced (and live combinations, in the case of
Mannheim) music.

In case you're wondering, I spent a day with Chip Davis and was blown away
by the underlying sophistication of the equipment and the integration with
live music. It gets very hard to tell what's synthesized, what's live, and
what's "in between".
