A bit of a learning curve from Sonar 6
Although it was a totally new interface, there were many more features that I discovered and began to use. I particularly like the new windows and the ability to save a specific format of which windows I want to display in my project.
As one who is new to using Electronic music and loops, the matrix was helpful in organizing and sampling the samples. Then, I would drag on to the track those samples I liked.
It was easy and intuitive in configuring my prior VSTs and settings.
Overall, I am very impressed thus far with this investment. It was cheaper than the prior version and comes with a bunch of new features.
