Sonar x2 is simply the WORST software experience I've ever had. Number one in the regret column.

Hey hibidy you've probably tried this already, do you have the snap set to zero crossing as this will also effect the now time when you click on it with the mouse whereever you try to move it.

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

I can't remember everything I've tried :shrug:

@demo: I would have thought people would be far more interested in this. Did everyone already buy it, or have people just decided not to bother? :hihi:

I bought it, used it for a couple of weeks, couldn't complete a project due to a constant obscure crashes, wasn't surprised by this, went back to Studio One V2, lived happily ever after.

Cakewalk's first release is usually quite buggy so I'm surprised there's already demo. They should've waited until first update, but I'm sure obvious bugs will be ironed out with it (they better do it because I already bought it! :D )

I'm tempted to download the demo but am reluctant to invest the time in learning what, according to the consensus -- is a version which is bound to be superceded by a bug-fixed one in due course.

I too was really surprised they did this w/o a first bug release.

FIRST releases are buggy?

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.

Wow, the demo is 'only' 1,3 gigs! Cancelled download right away. Cakewalk, are you out of your minds???

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.

lolz, you're prolly right. I can remember uninstalling sonar before the clean install and it left a SIGNIFICANT footprint :hihi:
