Sonar 3.0 (article by tweakheadz)
« on: September 13, 2014, 04:14:25 AM »

Cakewalk has always placed third in my comparisons of Cubase, Logic and Cakewalk.  For the first time, I am willing to give it second place behind Logic 6 Mac. I think Sonar 3 has risen above Logic 5.5 on the PC platform.  Of course, since Logic is not available anymore for PC users, that puts Sonar 3 in first place on the PC platform, at least for now, and only by a hair.  What does it for me is the Loop Explorer and Groove clip options which remain Sonar's strength. Because they have caught up to SX in so many other areas, the program as a whole has risen in my eyes. But Cubase SX 2 is about to be released and the evil eye looks to Steinberg to fix some of its shortcomings.  It's a great time to be a sequencer user.  Sonar 3 makes your home studio more powerful than it has ever been before.  I do think it is the most powerful PC sequencer to date.
