SONAR X3 Producer - Professional Recording, Mixing, and Mastering
SONAR X3 Producer leaves other DAWs in the dust with industry leading features. Edit and correct vocals like a pro with Melodyne Essential. Create the most realistic and authentic drums sounds with the full version of XLN Audio Addictive Drums. Get that epic, pro-sound that has defined the last 25 years of recording with the ProChannel - now with the QuadCurve EQ Zoom and analyzer for the ultimate precision. Get that vintage analog sound with the new ProChannel Tape Emulator and the Console Emulator. And it doesn't stop there with a new mixing suite powered by the Nomad Factory Blue Tubes FX and BlueVerb, Tone2 BiFilter 2, AAS Lounge Lizard Session, AAS Strum Acoustic Session, Dimension Pro, Rapture, and much more.
After some extensive searching for getting my first DAW there really was no other choice than Sonar X2 Producer Edition. I think it's the most bang for the buck you can get with some classic synths such as Z3ta, Rapture and the combo synth/rompler Dimension Pro amongst others.I think it comes with about 20 virtual instruments.
Tons of effects for MIDI and audio including the new Breverb, R-Mix and the ProChannel.
The Skylight Interface is highly customizable and you can choose from many default settings or create your own so unlike other DAWs you're not stuck to one GUI.
Running on a Win7 64x OS with no problems at all. Haven't had a single problem with stability issues and although I might be limited in my frame of reference of working with other DAWs I know when something works good.
If the Matrix view would be as versatile as Live 9's there really isn't anything more I'd like to see different. Hopefully they will expand the possibilities of it to catch up with -let's face it- this great feature of Ableton but other than that Sonar is a full matured DAW with endless possibilites.
If you're a first timer looking for a full packaged DAW there really is no need to look further cause of all the extra's you get. If you're an experienced producer you'll probably find all you need and even more.
What can I say more? I'm a happy customer.Read Review
