Better and better - Reviews Cakewalk Sonar X1 Producer

Bought online, so it must be a beautiful and good connection to download 15GB.

So hard to download, easy to install, difficult to configure because the tool is very rich. But I'm not complaining, if I had to choose the studio version.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

cf. my profile for the PC config.
This works fine, except sometimes a few crashes which I do not know if I should attribute to the soft or the audio card.
Most importantly, BitBridge (plug allowing in theory use 32-bit VST) software crashes when exporting. Hence, a requirement to bounce audio tracks VST concerned then delete the VST before export, and then, if you want to rework must import the VST, the reassign, recall the settings ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use Sonar since 2004, this version since 2011.
Previously I used only MIDI sequencer (bigboss, Cubase 2.5). Since then I have not mishandled Digital Performer (Mac only while Sonar is PC only).

Value / pretty unbeatable prices. I chose this because at the time it was 200 euros cheaper than its competitors.
Note the upgrade policy Cakewalk: possessor of version 3 (X1 corresponding to the 10), I paid 200 euros instead of 450.
I would do this choice for the same reasons (price), and because we have better things to do in life that compare full of this kind of software to choose his favorite.
