In my experience, its major flaw is that it doesn't support outboard delay compensation. If it's outside the sound card, Sonar doesn't know about it. So you have to nudge the recorded tracks if you use hardware compressors, fx, etc. If you stay in the box it doesn't matter.

very interesting, i never knew that, any of you guys run sound out then back into it? i have once or twice, but only with one track gooin' so i never noticed the delay....i know tons of ppl use PT along with outboard gear so that definately helps...

just figured i'd share

Yes I have, but with a latency of less then 5ms it doesnt even present itself as a problem really.

Anyway, ya there sure was a lot of them stepping up to praise Sonar, and a couple that were using it almost as far back as myself.

I've used it from its very first sequancer software for the Atari.

Yeah, that was a good read. Finally getting them their due respect.

Ya, I just read an article that praised them for not only catching up but jumping ahead of the big guns. Especially with them being the first to jump into the 64 bit thing. It seems lots of big timers are grabbing Sonar just for that reason, and finding out they got one hell of a DAW for their money.

As well it stated that loads of movie and TV music is now being done in Sonar as well.
