Life Saver!!!I had 3 weeks until I had to submit 2 songs for a movie score. My computer crashes and I lose all files and all of my programs. No back ups(yup...a hard life lesson for me). Not enough cash to replace my previous Cubase version and disc destroyed in a move. Sweetwater to the rescue!! 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.

Great ProductAfter years of contemplating a move from Cubase to another DAW, I finally decided to pull the trigger and picked up SONAR X2 Studio. I have to say that so far I have no regrets. SONAR is really easy to use, and installation was pretty straight-forward. 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.
