Studiocreuse's review - Cakewalk Sonar X3 Producer

Easy installation, but it doesn't work with a modern computer (win 7 64bits, 16 Gb DDR3, 4 Raptor HDDs @ 10,000 rpm, one i7-920 @ 3.2Ghz). There's nothing to do about it: Audio dropouts if the buffer is below 1024, which means minimum 21ms of latency ─ UNACCEPTABLE
And without even using a single plug-in...

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

win 7 64bits, 16 Gb DDR3, 4 Raptor HDDs @ 10,000 rpm, one i7-920 @ 3.2G
3 delta 1010 soundcards

edit: I corrected the Sonar parameters, buffersizehdd ... and as a consequence it now works only in asio, no wdm for me, it's a pity since it has less latency with wdm than with asio
But it works

OVERALL OPINION

All in all, it's not bad, we'll see how it responds in terms of reliability and, especially, stability
I'll keep on testing it
