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

Summary:

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.
