Part of the reason you do not hear CakeWalk mentioned much any more is their flagship product is now called Sonar. There are quite a few of us here myself included who use Sonar and older Cakewalk program's. And no there is nothing yo are missing. It is one of the best program's out right now. A complete arsenal of tool's to use without adding anything. The new Sonar XL package, include's some kick but FX and and other goodie's.

I'm using Cakewalk Pro9 too. I only use it for tracking and mixing down my final grinds. I also use the recording function to overlay guitar and bass and vocals over my premade electronic drums and synths, but my slower PC causes considerable latency that requires me to manually "shift" the tracks back into alignment. Nothings wrong with Cakewalk. Be yourself and use whatever you like.

To be honest, the latency issue is not in CakeWalk. It is in the sound card and driver's you are using. You should go to your sound card's manufacturer and get the latest driver's, (preferably the WDM driver's) and this will take care of any latency issue's.

Just for an example, I managed to get a SoundBlaster Gamer, or MP3 card down to 13 millisecond's of latency with last year's sriver update, and that was with CakeWalk Pro9.
