Iíve been using Sonar in my home studio since it came out. I have managed several large projects to their completion with few headaches, although it has a bad habit of crashing just when the client is standing behind you. Previous work has been full of metal guitar, loud drums etc. and sounded good.
Recently however, in prep for an upcoming project, I imported some acoustic piano tracks. Wavelab playback sounds superb, but Sonar is adding a small amount of distortion. Itís only audible under critical listening but it is defiantly there. I have tried everything, and though I have not given up completely I am starting to think that itís just the software! It has me ready to move to the new Cubase SX or Logic Platinum 5.x. I wish there were demos available for these so I could see and HEAR for myself but in that absence I am posting here for professional opinions.
P.S. I downloaded the demos for Cool Edit Pro and Samplitude - Both sound great, no distortion at all. So I know this is not a driver issue with Sonar.
