          Comments about Cakewalk Sonar X3 Producer Edition:

          So far this looks to be what I've been looking for. I was always interested in ProTools, but for most of its existance you had buy their hardware as well as the software. A friend of mine suggested Sonar X3, and I think it'll be great, once I've gotten through the learning curve. Unfortunately, my time is limited, so I haven't gotten to all of the features yet.

          This program is amazing. I suggest you start with Sonar LE first. This is not for the novice. The learning curve is high. Go to Berkley web site and there are course on this thing. Bottom line this will do anything you want. It comes with enough ready to use software to get anyone started on project work.

          Comments about Cakewalk Sonar X3 Producer Edition:

          Sonar is the best priced DAW for the value. It comes packed with high quality third party software such as: Addictive Drums, Melodyne Essential, Nomad Factory Blue Tubes FX, Lounge Lizard Session, and Strum Acoustic Session which costs a lot of cash by just there self and they are all full versions not demo/lite versions. X3 Professional has mastering tools that are just as good as the WAVES plug-ins I use and even the quality of my sound has improved greatly. The beloved pro channel has new tools(modules) to work with as well, I just hope they keep adding more in future X3 updates. Sonar X3 also has a version of TH2 (guitar amp sim) and Breverb from overloud built in. Just started learning These plugins and so far they will no doubt be used more and more as I learn them, however they are not the full versions(bummer) but the good side is they are not a completely stripped down like demo/lite versions. I have used older versions of Sonar and new this program had high hopes and I can honestly now say I like sonar better than ProTools even though I must say Presonus's Studio2 Pro is awesome and looks like they may be catching up with Sonar and ProTools in the future, but I put my money on Sonar X3 for now, besides how many DAWs' are loaded like X3? NONE!...Buy it, you want regret it....

          Best Sonar Yet

          Cons

          • Takes A While To Learn

          Comments about Cakewalk Sonar X3 Producer Edition:

          The first thing about Sonar is that it is an exceptional value. It contains high quality third party software like Addictive Drums, Melodyne Essential, Nomad Factory Blue Tubes FX, Lounge Lizard Session, and Strum Acoustic Session. The cost of this Software alone will total to about as much as just the price of Sonar out of the box. The full versions of these software programs are included. They are not lite versions.

          Sonar X3 Professional has a full set of built in mastering tools that are great and they will improve your audio recordings tremendously. My favorite feature in this program without a doubt is the pro channel. It is built into every channel on the mixer console. It allows you to insert modules that make your recordings sound great. The fly out EQ has become my new go to EQ. I like it better than the Waves EQ products.

          Sonar also has a version of TH2 (guitar amp sim) and Breverb from overloud built in. These plugins are incredible as well. Although they are not the full version they are really good and they are not a completely stripped down lite version.

          There is just way to many features to list. This software has come a long way in recent years. I have found Customer Support to be really good too. The developers have done a fantastic job with this. I now like this better than Pro-Tools. This has become my favorite Recording application for way to many reasons to list here.
