can you be a little more specific as to what you need help with?
I assume your talking about the audio settings.
I've been using sonar for about 6 years and love it. i think it's highly overrated.
with that much computer power and memory (RAM) you will be able to use it's full potential.
it will scream with the 64-bit Windows.
your going to love it.
