I just downloaded and installed the free Sonar, but have no idea how to use it. Any good tutorials for beginners around?

Thanks

Mike, Groove3 has a tutorial series of 49 videos +++ HERE +++ that takes 5 hours and 50 minutes to view.

You can pay for the ALL ACCESS pass or purchase the series. I prefer to purchase so I can download and have as a resource forever. Presently the series cost is $28 US. The series was created in 2015 so some newer features are not covered. A description is quoted below.

Quote:
SONAR guru Eli Krantzberg takes you from beginning to end, showing how to unleash the power of this fully featured, cutting edge DAW.

This definitive series begins with the Important Fundamentals like Installation, Starting a Project, Window Overviews, Controlling Playback and more, Eli then moves onto Recording Audio and MIDI, Quantizing, Punching-In, and Looping. Next, Eli goes deep into Arrangement and Clip Editing, covering topics such as Track Management, Clips, Markers, Applying Fades and more.

Mixing is up next, and Eli demonstrates How to Configure the Console View, SONAR's Signal Flow, Busses, and Sends, How To Use Real-Time Effects, EQ, Compression, Automation, Exporting and much, much more!


I should note that Groove3 also has a great video tutorial series for Band-in-a-Box. You can find out more about that +++ HERE +++

The Cakewalk University is still up https://www.cakewalk.com/CakeTV/SONAR-University also there is a heap of stuff on YouTube (start here https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qyqNJhSUGfI ) just look for what you want. The Cakewalk University has several levels and is often based on older versions but you'll get the idea. The best if you can get a copy to read is one of the Sonar Power books by Scott R Garrigus also look him up on the WEB he has more on Sonar. Another really good book (if you can get it) is the Simon Cann book Cakewalk Synthesizers From Presets to Power User this really shows how to get the most out various Synth plugins it is very useful beyond Sonar even helpful for BIAB. Simon Cann is worth looking up on the WEB as he also has much more on sound creation.


Hope it helps

Tony

User Blog - Recording and Processing Vocals Using RealBand...

Joanne Cooper's latest blog post is a "start to finish" of how she records and processes vocals for her songs using her three "go-to" programs: RealBand, Melodyne, and Nectar from Izotope (with a little help from Band-in-a-Box...)!

Check out this blog post here.

Before leaving Nashville, Tobin caught up with Brent Mason recording some future RealTracks in the studio.

We can't wait to hear them!

Video - Adding RealTracks to Your Band-in-a-Box® Song

There are 300 RealTracks Sets available (over 2,500 RealTracks!), and here at PG Music we have this to say about them: You'll want to use RealTracks in all of your projects... and you can!

But what if you're not sure how to add them to your Band-in-a-Box® song? We have a video for that! Click here to watch...

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
