Really curious how people will get on with a couple of things as I have no doubt people will demo it.
a) now time funkola: The quote from cake I got on a support ticket was "we've encountered a number of problems with the now time" Hmmmmmmmmm. Well, hopefully they are getting it figured out. But my biggest beef is it doesn't always snap where your snap time should. It's off just a little before or after.
b) Midi loop recording. This has been a problem for a number of us. NOT confirmed by cake though, so I'm really anxious to see how that goes for people using the demo. Biggest issue is if you loop a part, and want to record the midi in that part, depending on the tempo, it's missing the first little part on all clips. THEN look at the top grey part of the loop......is it missing that section? When trying to fill in that grey part to test I usually get a crash. And see below...
c) Crash reporter actually working
d) EQ handles on the pro channel are REALLY fiddly. Especially if you have LP or HP enabled.
I'll think of more, but other than the now time, people are getting on pretty good with it so curious if you run into these. Please do test it and let us know what you think. For all the complaining about issues, there are some nice things. You've prolly love take lanes!

If you haven't uncheck the snap and try it to see if it does the same thing.

I'm working in Sonar 8.5.3. The third release of 8.5. I can reliably generate a Sonar hang by trying to create looping shuttle playback on a blank project or, unreliably by toggling looping on/off during playback. Audio is glitchy as hell. Other freeze issues abound. I discovered a few reliably repeatable other set of bugs too in that version. One was confirmed by support and then disclaimed by the cakewalk guy visiting this forum. Not to mention the asinine VST registration process leading to "missing plugins" and an inconsisten inability to diagnose, constant GUI glitches...
I bought versions 4 through 8.5. NOT upgrading again.

Is it that big? Are they including all the stuff with the demo? (like dimension pro?)
I don't know. Seems absurd to me. I immediately realized that it will probably leave all sorts of files all over the place AFTER uninstall, so I had to prevent this from happening.
