Cakewalk SONAR X2 Studio DAW Software at a Glance:
Play - Rock out with top-notch virtual instruments and killer guitar tones
Whether you sing, play guitar, or rock the keys, you'll find more than enough amazing sounds in SONAR X2 Studio to keep you busy. Cakewalk packed SONAR X2 Studio with 17 killer virtual instruments, including Cakewalk's highly acclaimed Rapture subtractive synth. If you play guitar or bass, then you'll really get a kick out of the new TH2 SONAR amp simulator. Combined with SONAR X2's improved low-latency audio engine, these fun guitar effects are even perfect for recording.
Record - Flexible tools simplify your recording workflow without limiting your potential
With unlimited audio, MIDI, and instrument tracks at your disposal, Cakewalk SONAR X2 Studio sets the bar when it comes to basic recording capability. But the basics are hardly all SONAR X2 Studio has to offer. For starters, it's built around a phenomenal sounding 64-bit/384kHz audio engine, which keeps your sound as pristine as possible for mixing and editing. It also provides you with a huge collection of useful recording options, including the ability to record multiple takes directly to separate take lanes in the same channel.
Edit - Perform pro-level editing techniques effortlessly with the Skylight interface
One of the things that really sets Cakewalk SONAR X2 apart from other DAW programs is its amazingly simple yet totally customizable Skylight user interface. There are two things that make this interface particularly outstanding. First, it's completely modular, but it feels solid. What that means is that you can organize the individual modules as you like them (arrangement view, piano roll, mixer, etc.) and then lock them together into a single window.
The second important thing about the Skylight user interface is its extremely clever Smart Tool. Without having to memorize a litany of keyboard shortcuts or constantly fumble around with pop-up toolbars, the SONAR X2 Smart Tool lets you move from module to module and always have the functions you need just a mouse click away. Now add to all of this powerful editing features such as loop construction tools, a unique step sequencer, and many other streamlined editing tools, and it's little wonder so many people are making the switch to SONAR X2 Studio.
Mix - Refine your tracks with a host of amazing mixing tools and virtual processors
Cakewalk certainly doesn't skimp when it comes to virtual processors. From the moment you install SONAR X2, you'll have over 30 amazing plug-in effects and processors you can use to bolster your sound and smooth out your mix. Sporting both AudioSnap time correction and Roland V-Vocal pitch correction built directly into the user interface, SONAR X2 Studio saves you serious time when it comes to tackling many advanced mixing tasks.
Deliver - Distributing your latest masterpiece is just a few mouse clicks away
With the tracking, editing, and mixing behind you, there's only one thing left to do, and that's to share your work with the rest of the world. Whether you need to simply burn a CD or you want to toss your latest tune up to SoundCloud, Cakewalk SONAR X2 Studio lets you do it all - without ever leaving the program. That's not all. You can even print notation right from SONAR X2 or export it in MusicXML format. So don't be shy - show off your music with the amazing tools in SONAR X2 Studio.

I was recommended to look at Cakewalk. I pulled the trigger and bought the program. Cakewalk's "ease-of-use" saved my life. I was able to make 2 great recordings in a short period of time thanks to Cakewalk's user friendly program. I love it!! I can't wait to dig deeper. Cool plug-ins and editing tools make this a great program. Go buy it, it's worth every penny. close [-]

After living in the cluttered world of windows management that is Cubase, SONAR was a breath of fresh air. Their interface is totally dockable and you can set it up any way you want. I have to say that this is probably the single biggest wow factor for me. Workflow is awesome

I got down to the business of recording, and it was also pretty easy. I set-up my audio interface and recorded a few guitar tracks. TH2 is pretty good and great sounds out of the box. I also checked out some of their synths and they give you a lot of sounds, pretty usable. I'll dig in more on that soon. Effects seem pretty good as well.
Overall, seems like a great package for the money..YMMV. I am looking forward to doing more recording but so far no regrets. Gripes...hmm, none so far. Except maybe I wish i had gone for their Producer Edition with the ProChannel. close [-]
