This program is great. You can't beat the quality for the price. You can get great sounds especially for the drums and bass with this program. The secret to it is (not really the secret, but it took me a little while to figure out) the DXI synths. Its actual drum loops with each hit isolated, so the drums (if you do it right sound almost real). This is a perfect took for demo's. You really can't beat the price. I was gonna buy a mac so i can get garage band, this is so much better than that.
This is a terrible product. They say it's easy to use, it's not. And not only was it impossible to use, the quality you get when it does work is terrible. I didn't know that you can't return software when I bought it, and no one told me when I picked it up. They should really tell you about those things.
I was trying to decide between this and Guitar Tracks 3 - what got me to get Sonar was the MIDI interface, soft synths, and ReWire support. I'm using a Line6 GuitarPort for my input, which connects direct into Sonar via ASIO. Sometimes I'll lay down riffs in Line6 RiffWorks, build a song, then mute other tracks to isolate instruments and export to .WAV. I actually use this with Guitar Tracks 2 as an intermediate. I import the .WAV files into GT2, and then I can open the .BUN files into Sonar, which converts them into the the new format on first save. All the plug effects work in both GT2 and Sonar 4 HS, as well. Still learning my way around Sonar: very powerful program, extremely powerful, great features for the price. Have barely scratched the surface.
