Sonar 7 is easy to use

By Mike

from Sherman Texas

Comments about Cakewalk Sonar Home Studio 7 XL:

I have never done multitracking or mixing before and found that Sonar Home Studio was easy to get rolling with right away. I sent my first mix to our guitar player and he was very impressed with the quality. It is easy to make edits also for instance we had a bad chord in one of the verses and we just chopped out a good section of the verse and placed it over the bad chord. Added a little fade, and that was it! Love this product.
