Thoughts on Cakewalk Sonar 7

Posted on Tue, Nov 6, 2007

I've been using the new version of Cakewalk Sonar (version 7) during the week of rock, and I'm starting to get a feel for how it's working. The basic verdict: it's a decent upgrade, but it probably should have been Cakewalk Sonar 6.3 beta. Some cool new additions, but nothing that's going to affect me much on a day-to-day basis.

The good:

And the bad:

So the bad stuff is mostly just unmet expectations, rather than new problems. It's still the best DAW out there, in my book. I'm hoping they spend some extra time in the coming months squashing out some of the small (but irritating) bugs that have been in their software through several release cycles.

sounds fairly neat, what exactly does the dim solo do?

It works the same as the regular solo button, but it doesn't entirely eliminate the other tracks. It just pushes it up front of the mix, so you can keep it in context.

Josh, your post came up on my blog reader this morning. I just wanted to drop a line to say that I'm sorry to hear that you feel disappointed with SONAR 7, and make sure you are aware that there is a 7.0.1 patch available that addresses a few of the bugs that were in the program when it began shipping. We're working on another patch that should resolve some of the other issues that have been found by users since the release. Hopefully between the two your concerns will be addressed.
