Cakewalk Sonar X3?

Anyone got it yet or has plans to get it soon? Are the new features and extras worth it if you have X2?

I got the e-mail and whatnot. Looks cool, I think, but I can't afford the upgrade right now. Planning on getting it eventually though.

Re: Cakewalk Sonar X3?

Rixtr has is...they fixed quite a bit under the hood...way more stable..added some great stuff...and its so nice to have colored tracks and buses...

I will be updating myself soon.I own what they added already..<nomad,XLN,Melodyne( takes the place of V Vocal) Tape emu.....but to have colors and the new filter will be awesome..not to mention the new way you can do your comps.plus now VST3 certified..

Was just over there getting some stuff set up with him...Great update...

PM him..he can fill you in further...

Cheers

Good question!

Not sure..but they use the ARA so I would think that it should open up the same way..The knowledge base on this is very scarce at the moment..

I have to wait til they fix the UAD plug ins ( has something to do with the VST 3 cert now) issues before I can switch...

I am sure there will more info as time passes..

Re: Cakewalk Sonar X3?

I'll probably upgrade it for 150$ .. V-vocal never worked for me anyways, so its good to have something like melodyne integrated

im excited to see those 57 new FX and the boutique suite, man cakewalk built-in effects were soo .. oldschool boring haha

Re: Cakewalk Sonar X3?

Yeh I've always found V-Vocal quite crap. Tempted to do this sooner rather than later as there's some new toys I rather like the look of.

I hear it being buggy..but I have had Sonar crash maybe 3 times in 5 years.It was always due to a plug in not playing nice...I guess I have good luck or something. V Vocal had some faults, but used in smaller doses ( say on a vocal comp instead of 15+ channels) it worked pretty darn good, but it sure wasn't Melodyne.I would rather tell the singer to pick another vocation then do 100 takes of crap to comp into one usable vox track( unless they paid well ) Those old school FX work wonders even though they sure are ugly..The Nomad Blues are a nice addition.The Tape Emu for the Pro channel is not too shabby, my only gripe is they only give you 7.5 and 15 IPS no 30 IPS( hifi) used for some warmy goodies or tape saturation it will will work just fine..A little here and here goes a long way when used with the Tube sat and Console Emu's( Tol selected).

AS soon as the UA gets fixed I can do a more in depth on it..

Re: Cakewalk Sonar X3?

Yeah it didn't crash on me a whole lot of times, but still a lot of things sometimes, for example, the GUI of the prochannel saturation knob is always bugged, glitched on my screen, but still usuable. things like that

anyhow I just ordered it I will make the install and set up everything probably this weekend and might give my opinion on it as well

Sounds good..OIC that would be annoying for sure ...yah never had anything as far as graphical glitches..

Re: Cakewalk Sonar X3?

Downloading from Cakewalk as I type this. If memory serves, Addictive Drums has some nice features but was pretty poor regarding routing etc.

I'll report back when I've had a play.

Slightly off topic but I'm interested to see if Gibson do actually buy them out.

X3b update..fixes the main midi issues and a freak Master fader loss of signal glitch some are getting..so far Rixtr has not had the Master fader issue..

if you do not already have a Tape Emu you will like the Pro Chan version..no 30ips but it sounds quite good across all the channels..

Yes Add Drums has a killer sound to it for such a small CPU foot print..the routing is not as friendly as most of my other Drum VST's are.but the ability to change the mic distance is an added bonus.plus being able to tweak a filter..

I will be updating within a week. UAD will have a patch very soon..YEAH!!!!!

Re: Cakewalk Sonar X3?

Totally mucks up the VST plugin layouts on the menu. Previously everything was nicely sorted into 32- and 64-bit, now its just a complete mess. Things like Kontakt which had multiple entries, all clearly labelled as to which was which, now all show as the same, with nothing to differentiate them on the menu. Amateur programming tbh.

In your VST preferences uncheck the box. There is a box that hides all 32 duplicates that have a 64 bit counterpart..

Cheers. They're not technically duplicates as its the different options for the VST. I just felt like grumbling as X2 had made everything nice (compared to X1) and X3 has made it horrid.

Dus howwid!

Didn't spend much time playing with the new plugins yet as I decided to knuckle down to finishing off something I'd been working on for a while.

Re: Cakewalk Sonar X3?

Upgraded and installed it Today.....

Grumble away my friend!..Ia m sure I will be doing some myself!

I do like how my 32 bit plugs are green and 64 bit are blue..Playing nice with my X2 and X1d directories thus far. All my plugs carried over without a hitch..no irritating need the serial crap like last time!..
