Cakewalk Sonar Resurrected
« on: April 04, 2018, 10:25:27 PM »
As many may know, Gibson discontinued Cakewalk Sonar last fall - another Gibson kiss of death for an acquired product.  Bandlab has apparently acquired the intellectual property rights and is making Sonar available again - for free.

I like free, but is there something about Cakewalk that would make me think it's better for my needs than the free Audition 3 that I'm familiar with? Is it the same sort of DAW or is it a slightly different animal?

TIA

I’m not familiar with Audition, but I doubt it.  It is a full function DAW product, like others on the market.  I don’t see any reason to move to it if you are already invested in and comfortable with another DAW.  On the other hand, if you don’t already have it use a full feature DAW, you might want to consider it.  Price is right.

OK, I was thinking it was geared more towards being a recording interface. Audition went free at v.3.0 and so I've got just as much invested.  Thanks for the info.
