Sonar X1 Producer Edition

Posted by Ms.Tris On September - 8 - 2011

Welcome back ! ;-)…

I am wondering how I never heard of this, and it’s been out since I guess some things escape the “google queen” after all. Shout out to Gee Wiz for being the king of net marketing and research!

I always liked Sonar, but for me Reaper was easier to use than older versions. There are a few programs I think I will always use..Fl Studio, Adobe Audition, and Reaper. They all do different things which I love. My problem is pinpointing one program that I will master, on my quest to be a great engineer. This is why I post about so many DAWS. I am still trying to find the “sweet spot”, and get the best possible sound out of my set up. In addition, you all know I need the visuals to be easy enough on the eye, as well as flashy enough to make want to use I’ve got the beat making aspect squared away, now onto a favorite “mixing” program.

Sometimes updates don’t impress me much, but this edition of Cakewalks Sonar has been revamped in such an efficient way. The toolbar is amazing, and there are so many ways to layout the workspace. The sound quality is super! Even on those hard to mix kicks and bass… Hmnn, I am thinking this may be the one I’ll use for a while..gonna give it a test run this and next month…

There are three versions of X1 according to your needs. Check out the official site to find more info:

Anyone using this as your main DAW? What do you like about it that sets it appart form others?…

Happy Beat Making To All….

Cakewalk Sonar 8 Webinar

Posted by Ms.Tris On August - 9 - 2010

What’s Up?.. I had a super, smashing, bangin’ birthday weekend :)… My family threw a party for me and we had a blast..The weather was so beautiful on Sat. perfect for all the fun.
I was rushing a little before, and left my lab a little I’m taking some time to get things organized, so I’m watching educational videos while I tidy.

I’ve been getting into Sonar a bit lately. It’s not as easy to use as Reaper, but you can surely achieve great mixes with it.
Here is a 35 minute webinar that Cakewalk released a couple years ago. I am listening to it as I type, and it is an excellent resource for Sonar users.
