Thread: Sonar 3: Producer Edition

  1. #1 Sonar 3: Producer Edition 
    This is probably the greatest software I have aquired in my past two years of searching. I've been through countless programs and finally... I think this is the jackpot.
    I liked Fruity Loops, but I couldn't mess around with my own samples, so... Sonar is the one for me...
    *daydreams* hehe, I'm in love...

    Once you learn it tho, you can make nearly any sound imaginable. It's got drum machines, samplers, synths, fx modules... it's the champ. It's not as user friendly as Fruity, but the quality is way beyond. Cubase is awesome too but pretty complicated...

    haven't really played with it much but its a ton better than drawing in individual notes and changes.

    I like Reason alot but I always use it plugged into Cubase SX, i'm very interested in the new version of Ableton Live. Never used Sonar but i'm sure its better than FL.
    Fuck your local scene! :rofl:

    I'd have to say that Sonar is definately the best that I've used... as opposed to the simple programs such as FL and Acid Pro. Anywho, Sonar also isn't user friendly (oh lord not at all), but definately worth learning. Always looking to find something different though and it seems like this Reason is getting a lot of good props *scampers off*

    Sonar, FL, and anything from Acid are just toys, cute and fun to play with when you're bored, but the sound is dire...

    IDK.. I've made some pretty awesome shit with Sonar... definately gets my thumbs up, but then again I'm using a keyboard. Ok, I was using Reason at a friends house earlier and I couldn't find a playboard... it was all in real time, is there something I'm missing here?

    You mean a sequencer? Just create a "matrix pattern sequencer" under the machine, then copy the pattern to the sequencer at the bottom. Or you can do the whole midi thing if you've got a keyboard.

    Yeah, definately was looking for more of a layout, but it really is easier to use if you have a keyboard... *pets her keyboard* I love it!

    Sonor isn't that great in my opinion.. its just a toy, something to learn the ropes on... I use Cubase SX, Reason 2.5, Ableton Live 4.0, and a ton of VSTfx and VSTi's... Cubase blows Sonor out of the water.... yeah you can make some decent things with Sonor but its just to limited for my taste.

    SugaV- If you PM me on here I can probably hook you up with something simple if you're just starting out... let me know what you're interested in!!!

    Nick- Yeah, keyboards are the shizzy

    Jeffery- I'm just starting to use my keyboard in conjunction with a program, so sonar is working out great for me. I'll move onto something more developed and complicated once I get my basics down. Currently working on an awesome project with a friend of mine and sonar is doing exactly what I was hoping to accomplish... can't complain when it's getting the job done.

    you can view a keyboard in reason and also write your track note by note... thats what i do... it takes some time to figure out the lay out... but once you do you get rather fast at knowing what to do

    there is a good tutorial on www.freestylerecordings.com..
    come one, come all

    I think its so much more productive to actually have a midi controller with at least a few sliders and knobs so you don't have to use the damn mouse.
