Your honest opinion. Migrating to ProTools M-Powerd from Sonar 6 PE Audio Interfaces

It sounds like Sonar has a bunch of end-user oriented features, I just think your version of setting up a click in PT was a little dramatic, considering how simple it is to insert the Click instrument, and how well-written the Digi manual is.

So what... 2 out of 3 ain't bad. And, I did say Cakewalk... not Sonar. heh

It's nice that Sonar lets you control all of that, BTW.
Well, that, I suppose explains part of it...

Although it still leaves the question of why you feel your evaluation of the capabilities of software that's at least seven versions back is in any way meaningful to today's discussion.

Just out of curiosity, are you also basing your comments on Pro Tools LE on versions from the last century?

You already made your point, what's the big deal?

I mentioned Cakewalk because the OP said he's been using Cakewalk since '94, and my post was entirely relevant to the discussion, albeit one fact was wrong. And I'm sure the OP, being a Cakewalk user for 13 years knows about the click functions within Sonar 6PE. For those that didn't, including me, your post enlightened them. Someone stated that it was a nightmare to start a click in PT and it isn't.

Sorry to spoil your day, then. Maybe you need one off.

What is Pro Tools? duh...

You may be right. (I mean about the day off. heh )

FWIW, I never figured it was a nightmare doing a click in PT/LE or I would have heard about it before now. That said, I'm sometimes surprised by what some of my differently-DAW'd brothers and sisters put up with. And that said, I've never for a second assumed that Sonar was the best answer for everyone -- or even the largest slice of PC users. I think all the DAWs must surely have their strong points for different users and tasks.

Sorry to be cranky.
