"Recently, Cakewalk worked with the great folks over at Valve to make our Music Creator 6 Touch software available to their community, and the onslaught of new “music creators” has been nothing short of amazing and inspiring. To kick off our promotion, we thought it would be a fun experience to recreate Jonathan Coulton’s cult classic “Want You Gone” from Portal 2 all in Music Creator 6 Touch (MC6t) – but the kicker is that we had 24 hours to do it in order to make the deadline for launch. In this case, not only was collaboration creatively beneficial, but it was also essential."

The demo project for this song is included with Music Creator 6 Touch and we have posted the second, of a three part series on the Cakewalk Blog to give you an idea on how we made this song from scratch.

For the launch of Music Creator 6 Touch, we thought it would be fun to recreate the song "Want you gone" from Portal 2. Unfortunately, we only had 24 hours to do it. That didn't stop us from taking on this challenge, and as it turns out, Music Creator 6 Touch made it pretty easy to accomplish this task.

The demo project for this song is included with Music Creator 6 Touch and we have posted the first, of a three part series on the Cakewalk Blog to give you an idea on how we made this song from scratch.

In part 1, we focus on the drums and show you some cool techniques which you can try out for yourself on the demo or any song.
