You're talking low-end consumer products, not pro-audio (or pro-video) suites. Cakewalk certainly aren't selling Sonar X3 through Steam.


And Cakewalk sells SONAR on steam now:

Probably not much, just wishful thinking... The STEAM crowd don't strike me as the types who'd fork out 500 bucks for a DAW. I've read somewhere that something like 75% of STEAM's entire business is generated by their limited-time sales. Which means people are there for the bargains, and Sonar X3 Producer definitely doesn't look like one to them... They might sell a few copies of the lesser versions though. That is, if the software doesn't need STEAM to run in the background. Or else it would be pure madness.
