Great Midi and audio capabilities - rewire, VST wrapper (built-in), and the ability to run many aux busses are great for flexibility and usefulness. The only thing that might be a hindrance is that VST instruemtns and effects must be converted to DXI using the included wrapper - but all workes perfect once it is converted. The 4.0 version has surround sound, but is truly useless for music (good for film), but 3.1 was truly the zenith of audio-only PC DAWs

Price paid

$300 crossgrade fom Cubase VST

Sonar 3.0 is very easy to use - although unless you are very aquainted with Cakewalk products, you have to read the manual. Once you understand the logic, you will not need to do anything but look throught the menus.


The sound quality is excellent - light years ahead of Cubase VST and previous DAW iterations (old Cakewalk). The quality truly depends on your interface, but the program does not add any noise to a recoring that wasn't there ot begin with (transparent).

Never had any problems - everything works as it should.


The only reason I give it a "9" is due to the fact that with all DAWs, sometimes it hinders your creativity with too many menus and too much going on in the screen views.
