I decided to review Cakewalk's Sonar Platinum after years of continued use. The product does exactly what it should. At times you might see the occasional oddity but that cant always be narrowed down to the software itself. There is simply too many things going on when using digital audio software. The reason I give it a 5 is because of its value as a whole. It is extremely flexible, well thought out and simply does what it should. The product is updated on a monthly basis. This is a great way fix small oddity's within days. Especially the way the product release updates in phases. Typically 2 phases a month (Early release/Finished release). This makes "Living with a certain bug for a year until the next update comes out" a thing of the past. If I have any personal gripe, its tech support. The community forums are amazing. You can literally ask a question and have 4 reply's within minutes. but that's no substitute for tech support. No one likes waiting for a reply from tech support. Cakewalk Sonar Platinum seems to be the best DAW in its price range for me. I have been using it for a long time now and not because im too lazy to learn something else, because I do use other DAW's. I use Cakewalk Sonar Platinum because it does what it should and it does what it should very easily.
