MGR/Kris Kopec's review"Cakewalk Sonar 2.0"

Cakewalk Sonar 2
cakewalk website, $299, I bought software for recording purposes. For a long time I have been searching a good software that would give a lot of flexibility with various standards in present audio industry.

I like Sonar 2 because I found it extremely easy to use for my recording purposes. I use it for midi and audio recording. It is a very versatile piece of software in a price range affordable.

I thought that more plugins would be included with the software. Of course there is an XL version that comes with three plugins, 2 of them for mastering, but I was hoping for a good sound generator. The one that is included I don't find particularly useful.

The quality of the software is very good. It did not freeze yet and processing is very quick. There are major improvements. Before Sonar I used Guitar Studio and definitely Sonar is a way to go

1. The program is affordable
2. It is recognized as competitive software in audio industry
3. It is compatible with other softwares for transfers of files
4. It can be used for midi, audio as well as video production purposes to synchronize audio to video
5. It has a lot of effects
6. It is easy to use

Cakewalk Sonar 2
The implementation is done without much difficulty, a bug nanmoins formidable li optimization of audio tracks (in the French version) and take into account: NEVER use a project title , track or midi or audio object with an accent
and especially not any grave accent! Trying to record an audio track called "Premire" and then we'll talk about APRS. Other small problem like adding DEFINITIONS MIDI instrument that does not work at all. Otherwise it's the bomb. Ckawalk user since version 9 Pro audio, this software is user friendly and trs trs powerful!


ASUS P4B266 motherboard chipset intel / 2GHtz P4 512 MB RAM / 1 SCSI UW 3 10 000 18 GO IBM towers for audio and a 20 GB IDE disk 7200 rpm for Systm / sound card Hoontech 24 / 96 + rack ADDA 2000 WDM drivers for Windows 2000 pro.
Stability of the software for any evidence.
With 24 tracks + a qual strro 4 bands per track + 1 1 Chorus 1 rverb rpart delays of 3 + bus compressor enabled on a 4-way 8-channel qual master on the bus out. On reading the utilization rate of SCSI disk = 4 8% (barely) and the use of my gal processor is 8%!
Config trs reliable as long as you give yourself the trouble of using non-shared PCI IRQ (rafecter through the bios of the machine)


I use Cakewalk SONAR and since 1999.
SONAR trs is intuitive, very easy paramtrages, Hyper engine powerful programming interfaces you can control.
The graphics software is hlas ignored ... go a little effort it is no longer under Win 3.11 that deuce!
Good quality price since the effects of quality and have t Intgr Dxi instruments.
APRS trying Samplitude, Cubase, Logic Audio and plant n times my computer I DCID to invest in stable and hassle free! (Well, almost .... ;-)

Installation without problem. No inconsistency. If we know a little squenceurs, it is easy to use particulirement. Manuel monstrous! (I have not read everything, and fortunately I do not need to read everything!)


3GB PIV, 1 GB ram, mia noon. The problem with beginners mia noon but it's partly because I did not know the map well and secondly, because I had not taken the latest drivers that have pretty well arranged things ... Now, trs stable configuration.


I use Sonar for more two years now. I always prfr Cakewalk Steinberg, all fawn, Cubase has never worked on any of my computers and every time I go to shops that are testing censs Cubase always plant their computer (do I have bad air with Steinberg? may be). In any case Sonar and easy to use, it works all the shots. Reasonable price compared to the possibilities. The DXI is not enough rpendu it works better than the vst I got over that plant. Not much to learn to use it right away. In short, I no referrer hsiter this choice.

Installation is no problem, no incompatibility config is easy for cons there is no glossary, which means that when looking for a technical term, it tudie the table of contents res and did not always have time to do that


I have a P4 1.8 Ghz, 512 MB RAM, Win XP, sound card edirol 2496
it seems stable, the problem is that I can not I get the patches 2.1 and 2.2 for the French version since France does arbiter distribut more edirol cakewalk and the new distributor does not care royally, as the limits of politeness


I use sonar for almost a year the software is user friendly and has a habit of cakewalk, I can not work with other software.
the report is qualitprix convenable.Le black spot in history as the distributor, but I RPET was a disgrace. DO NOT HESITATE TO TELL THEM, IT WILL BE THE CHANGE BEHAVIOR, I sent an e-mail DISSATISFACTION ELSEWHERE A CAKEWALK TO REPORT THE PROBLEM, EVEN IF YOU MAKE experience this problem with EDIROL
