    This book has many A-grade reviews from purchasers.

    Anybody here have an opinion on this book for a Sonar newbie?

    Sounds great for a *total* recording/tracking newbie... I doubt even someone migrating from fruity loops to SONAR would get much out of it though.

    Then again, I haven't read it, so maybe I'm doing it a great injustice.

    No you're not... you're on a higher level than I am. ;)
     
  5. I don't know anything about that book, but I was a Cakewalk newbie a year and a half ago (got Sonar 2 six months ago). I would say, dig in. I know it can be intimidating, but see if you can get some tracks recorded just for the heck of it.

    What kind of stuff do you want to record?

    Gavin,

    Scott's book is good, but I would suggest a cover to cover reading of the Sonar Manual. If there are things that you still cannot do, or do not feel comfortable with, then Scott's book may be a help.

    I have read both books cover to cover and found that there is a lot of overlap. Both great resources.

    Hope this helps.

    My interest is 95% live performance recording.

    I have an Aardvark Q10 interface unit, a locker full of mics, and am building the DAW now. Part of the long process is rack mounting the DAW, Q10, (future 2nd Q10), and a mic patch bay so I don't have to constantly plug the Q10 jacks.

    The remaining 5% of my recording needs will be multi-track recording of a solo artist playing different instruments. The recording environment will not be studio quality.
