Sonar X2 has been out awhile now; how is it treating you?
I like it, and it's the DAW I feel most comfortable in. They have done some curious things--- such as putting the BOUNCE TO TRACKS command in a (to me) obscure, hidden place that's unintuitive. My software philosophy is, the most basic, rudimentary commands-- the things most basic to editing--- should be right up front 'n' center, where a chimpanzee could find them without ever resorting to helpfiles. The tweak-y, new fancy **************** makes for good eye candy, and flatters some newbie users into thinking they're doing something cutting-edge, but it should take its place behind the most basic, "dumb" commands. I can't see as there should be any exception to that rule. For ANY software on any discipline.
Every paint-stroke takes you farther and farther away from your initial concept. And you have to be thankful for that. Wayne Thiebaud
I use it all the time. I got X1 very early on, when it was still buggy and weird. I installed it side-by-side with 8.5.3. Once I got used to X1, I could work much faster even with the bugs, and whenever I went back to 8.5.3 I always felt slowed down.
X1 went through a bunch of improvements. But X2 tightened down a lot of screws, and does everything I need. Things that seemed like odd choices at first have, over time, become very comfortable for me.
