    Talking SONAR 5 Already?

    Maybe I'm just getting old and time is flying...
    64bit and a convolution box - among other stuff...
    I was waiting on pins and needles for Sonar 4.4...

    And shipping THIS month!
    Those Cakewalk dudes don't mess around!

    many times i think Sonar and Logic are secret partners. the feature set is so darn similar.

    One of the few things I miss about Windows was using Sonar. I really enjoyed that app. It's great to see it growing how it is. Couldn't help but notice the new covo reverb too! *Very* cool.

    I am now on SX, but had Logic Pro for awhile and enjoyed Space Designer for the time I had it. Here's to hoping that Steinberg gets on the "convo included" bandwagon!

    Anyways, back to Sonar...

    Gotta like the midi editing in track view...I always look forward to their upgrades, it's never just a "couple things here and there" it's always huge overhaul for the better.

    After using PT for 10 years, I now use Sonar and Vegas. I guess that's a small real world example of how the PT user feels/felt?!

Digidesign also needs to keep their GUI somewhat crippled so that their expensive (and highly profitable) control surfaces are a necessity.

    I completely agree, I think they're already hurting protools, mostly because of what you said. Many pros are switching to Sonar. It's become just so feature rich, and most of all, you can use whatever hardware YOU want to use.

    A good example of where it's going is Sonar 4 Producer just won "Best Recording Software" award at the 2005 MIPA awards (Musikmesse Awards)

    Protools is marketed very well and owned by the HUGE Avid company, but as you said they are becoming quite limited in comparison to programs like Sonar and Logic.
