3 DAWs - 3 sounds? Reaper vs. Sonar vs. Samplitude

3 DAWs - 3 sounds? Reaper vs. Sonar vs. Samplitude In this video, I test 3 DAWS by doing the exact same mix of the same song. There was a long debate as if every DAWs sounded the same and I thought it was time to get a true answer.

I also give a link to downloadable multitracks songs.

What do you think of the tests, convincing ?

Linux Compatibility for Sonar 8.5 Producer's

Many moons ago, I won a contest from for a copy of Sonar 8.5 Producer's edition. I have been happily running the software on a Windows 7 desktop.

That machine has gone on to a better place so now I am putting together a new desktop. I am looking into running a Linux system (but may just do a dual OS install for audio).

A look into Cakewalk's support and a general internet search has yielded not much information at all at whether or not Sonar 8.5 Producer's is compatible with any Linux OS?

Novation Zero SL MK 2 with Sonar

Hi All
Has anybody had any experience with the above DAW Control Surface?
I use Sonar x3 Producer, and at present use my A500 Pro Control Surface function, and to be honest, like the feel of proper faders and knobs for pan etc.
I have tried V-Control pro for iPad, nice idea, but not quite the same as real controls.
Has anybody tried the Novation Zero SL Mk 2 with Sonar?
I read an awful right up last week, but wasn't quite sure the user gave it a descent try.

Remote Control for Sonar

Hi All,
While recently looking through adds for Control Surfaces for my Sonar x3, I came across an article on an app for iPad called V-Control Pro.
This would allow me to control, (in my case, an already set up workspace in Sonar) using an iPad touchscreen.
I have an A-500 Pro midi keyboard controller at present, which is great for what I want, as a controller when mixing, or generally at my desk.

I am having trouble recording guitar tracks into Sonar X3

I am using Peavey ReValver Mk III.V as an effects processor and I am having difficulties coming to terms with the fact that after I record a guitar track into Sonar X3 the effects aren't recorded but rather just the DI signal. I installed Peavey ReValver as an plugin effect inside a folder for use in Sonar X3 but latency seems to be an issue when I have 4-6 guitar tracks with PR as a plugin effect.

What should I do or check so that when I am recording guitar it is the signal that I hear from Peavey ReValver?
