Cakewalk Sonar 6 Producer Edition
Instalation very easy and authorization 5 minutes on the site of cakewalk.
No incompatibilities I only use a few vsti (ez drummer, nexus, trilogy) in addition to those supplied with the software and everything works.
I found the setup very easy too, but I am no longer in bébutant mao!
For my part I had the paper manual in English ... (sic) not against the ouvert.par pdf manual is very complete and very well pensé.Si tutorials we take the time to consider it all very good explanation for starting, anyway read the manual I think the first thing to do to take advantage of such software.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Toshiba Tecra A4 laptop with Centrino Pentium M 740 1GB RAM 1 SATA external drive 250 GB 7200 rpm sound card edirol FA 66
No problems with this configuration.
No audible latency, 17 playback tracks with effects (reverb, chorus, equalizer, etc.)
fingers in the nose ...
Configuration very stable no crashes (I instaler all updates)
so no worries.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a month.
I find it very ergonomic sonar and well thought out with great practical tools (audio snap, V-Vocal ...) and unique and can be configured ailleur.Tout little we spend time on just do it all over avec.De effects and vsti provided are of very good quality (which is not always the case elsewhere, see cubase)
The best audio sequencer that I tried I went through logic, cubase sx 3, traktion2,
sonar and far outweighs ... the price / quality ratio seems better than its main concurrents.Et even if the price can seem high (€ 569 in playback) is the price of excellence! (and then it is cheaper than many others!)
I would do this choice fermés.J eyes' ve found that I could not find ailleur.Pour me is the best sequencer on the market by far, very stable, instinctive, they do in two seconds which requires one hour with other (I exaggerate only!)
Thank you for having spawned a cakewalk as soft.Vous are the genies and shot sure musicians.

Cakewalk Sonar 6 Producer Edition
Problem-free installation at home.
No incompatibility particulire report, set by the Audio Ease Altiverb of ( ) Gnrant many crashes in my random image.
Setup could not be more simple.
The manual is exemplary.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

PC, Core 2 Duo E6600, 2GB XMS RAM 800.

The software works as well as others, the most unstable I've ever given t test on this platform (random image crashes at launch or loading the project) as Nuendo 3.2 and ProTools LE 7.1.
Impressive performance. I have not been able to saturate the (s) Processor (s).
A few crashes as others, mainly with some VSTI (Sonar closes without further ado).

OVERALL OPINION

I'm using Sonar since trs long, but I used other programs together. I dropped the little bit more. Must prciser the V6 is a rvolution on many points, which saw many users migrate to other dairies it. Knowing several software trs well, when I do a dmonstration features included in the basic software (Producer Edition) and I show how it's done the same thing in other software, unwittingly I am migrating many users! (Maybe I should be asking a percentage Twelve Tone Systems?;) )

I think that beginners in computer music, without a priori, but regular at the user PC, Sonar find more intuitive than many other programs. In addition, Sonar gre best audio and fawn so much more ergonomic (modern PC Mice multiple buttons and tilt wheel). Also, no need to be a specialist in consoles to routing in Sonar, so it's childish and clarity without gal.

What I like most about Sonar? The list is too long ... sincrement Version 6 includes an impressive list of tools I could do without, and require the purchase of additional components (plugins) with other apps, which is quickly trs expensive. Besides the simplicity of the interface, not requiring to use the manual each time to find a function, when you're a newcomer. The translation of the French version use appropriate language and speaking trs. In addition, the policy of Twelve Tone Systems I like, unless they follow the trend marketing compared to the past: To believe Steinberg, Digidesign and Apple Logic, they are all leaders (see page of the product on their site internet, lol!), however, there can be only one leader, then who is lying?

What I like least? The management of the South, but it is valid for all others. Sonar 6 is doing even not too bad. The "Cubasification" which s'opre, especially when you look at the console of Sonar 6, largely inspired by Cubase SX. I find this new console too much load.

I have tested and used: Cubase (From Pro 24!), Cubase SX (1 4 Beta), 3 Nuendo, Tracktion 2, Samplitude (beginners since its Amiga!) Until the v8, ProTools (LE & TDM, since v 5.8), DP 4, Logic Pro 6. Everything on Mac & PC. None are good or bad my opinion, all have their strengths and weaknesses, and the fawn apprhender schmilblick. Sonar on a PC is for me the winner and overall terrain. It's been (almost) everything you rve for less and with an audio quality that has nothing to envy others. What more?

I no longer use the Sonar (Prod) & Live 6 (Live). Both exported to know Manir fast copy, which is not the case for most others. (Export for Protools, Cubase or Logic is a nightmare, it must be done track by track, they do not know a single opration export an entire project in the form of multiple audio tracks to all beginners and paramtrables point 0).

This choice is carefully and extensively rflechi, supported by the growing success of Sonar and the potential dclin the Mac. Figures released by Apple and its trade policy of leaving nothing prsager good when the future of this platform, which becomes infinitely minority (# https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Computer Parts_de_march.C3 . A9) from the PC, while becoming a little bit of a mid-range PC.

In conclusion: Sonar is a good software, but its ergonomics are trs print from the Windows world (available menus, context menus, shortcuts, drag / drop everywhere, excellent management evolve mouse). It does not suit me a MacOS indemordable of ergonomics, more simplistic.

Cakewalk Sonar 6 Producer Edition
- The installation is done it without problems?
Absolutely no problem. It starts the setup and everything is done, the software finds the directory of the old versions, adapting their plugins, and fixes it.

- Have you experienced any incompatibilities?
Having a midi interface M-Audio Midiman I do not know, but as it dates back to walk with this software recently, I see no reason that other stuff .. foirent

- The general configuration is easy?
It is a software sequencer, you know. In the first approach it is completely dropped, and then after it goes alone. Working with versions 2 and 3 of the software before, I immediately found my bearings, and discovered with joy a few new features including the absence bothered me a little aupravant

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
Topics aid is very well made, several useful tutorials to make the soft hand (recording / editing audio / midi, VSTS, ect ...). I have not had to use yet, but I had a look of curiosity, and I can say that a beginner would find his account.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

- What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)
Windos XP, Pentium4 2.8GHz, 1GB RAM, SoundBlaster Audigy (sic).

- The software works he correctly on this configuration?
Yes, no problem, very stable, I had a big crash once and I had not saved my work from a lead, but recovered SONAR work session and made a backup before planting ... Cakewalk thank you.

- What performance? (If quantifiable)
Nickel, good sound quality, you can run a lot of live effects, synths ... Obviously, at some point it Gave a little memory, but it's inevitable, is not it? I do not use control interface with any hardware yet.

- This software + hardware is stable?
Equipment?

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?
I started working with SONAR two years ago, when I came into the world of computer music. I love everything about this software, especially since it supports VST natively. The graphical interface is very readable, unlike Logic example that I find ugly and unpleasant. In addition it is very flexible and fast enough after all took over (one year for an hour or two a week, no more, and I know a big part of the functions). I had the opportunity to put my hands on Cubase SX3, which I hated, in terms of ergonomics that software can not hold a candle to sonar in my opinion.

- What is so special that you like most and least?
The +: um, just about everything in fact. Ah anyway, you can record MIDI tracks to audio directly within SONAR without having to fiddle with the sublime mix of windose table. And that's class.
The -: I need some MIDI control surfaces, but it has little to do with cakewalk: p

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
I worked with SONAR 2 and 3, and I also tried Cubase. SONAR 6 is my favorite software.

- How would you rate the quality / price?
The cast is quite honest in relation to the many uses you can make soft and fun and the quality of work it provides.

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes, without hesitation. Vive SONAR, it is unfortunate that this sequencer is not more prevalent in our green lands ....

Works very well in this configuration and no latency.
The software is stable but do not over when there brusqu eg 1kontakt + + 2ou3effact 1ou2autres virtual instruments and go too fast (like change too much too fast parameters during playback of the other 13 tracks)

NOTICE GLOBAL
