It's Fall and you know what that means. Any word on Sonar 7 yet? I was just at the Cakewalk site and have seen a few hints but not much more. The hints are in the form of when you go to purchase/download Dimension LE with GPO it says it will be included in Sonar 7. Same with a couple of other plugins. So far I have only been upgrading on the even numbers. But it's not a hard and fast rule.

That would be a nice incentive. Cakewalk always adds some cool tools to add value to an already powerful app.

Love to make that music,as well I love to tweak,Make my own sample sets

I can guarantee you that I do NOT have a Sonar 7 Power book available at this time. I don't know what that ebay page is all about, but when it says available now... that is not true.

Gosh Scott, maybe they wrote the book without you? Surprise, Sonar 7 Power is selling on Amazon. Scott's like, what the frick? Well, we know that's ain't going to happen. Funny how people don't both to ask the source. Cakewalk has a forum where they have somebody declaring that your Sonar 7 Power book is already written and is going to be given away free as a promotion.

Ha! Yeah, this year seems to be crazy with rumors. I don't think I've ever seen it this bad. But of course that ad in EQ and Recording didn't help things so the rumors will probably just keep building and building until something happens...

I'd be more than happy to see some longer periods develop between DAW's version upgrades. Not only would it be better for everyone, but it would give you more time to write each new version's book. I don't see a need for a yearly new version of Cakewalk. How about every 2 1/2 years. Now that would make sense. NI's Komplete 5 is a total bust as far as I'm concerned. They can't even come up with Reaktor 6? And then they take out two great effects. It's nuts.

Yep, I agree with that. I'd say every 2 years would be good and it would be nice if everyone in the industry adopted the same timetable. But it will never happen... not when there is money to be made.

I agree with the 2 year plan. In fact, I personally don't plan to upgrade my S6PE until 8 comes out and then I'll try to catch the cheap upgrade path. I'll probably do that from now on unless there's some compelling reason I need to add the odd ones in.

It's rumor no more, got the email tonight, Sonar 7 is shipping and available to previous users at discounted upgrade prices. The usual $179 for S6PE to S7PE. Do I need to, no, will I, Probably. I'm a sucker for the new features whether I use them all or not. At least now I am using it to produce something on a regular basis so it may be worth the cost to me.

Yeah, they put some nice new features into this version... especially if you use MIDI a lot. Sidechaining is a nice addition as well.

Every so often, Cakewalk tosses about an offer intended to pick up all those people that haven't jumped at the upgrades for a number of cycles. So I'm waiting for them to give an offer that says X amount discounted for any previous version. They did that a while ago around 3, 4, or 5. I can't recall which version it was. Their marketing folks know that there are some cheap holdouts that they can snare with a deal like that, if the discount yields a large jump in versions. I sure hope I someday learn how to be a cheap holdout.

P.S. - Daggonit, darn, rats, etc.! Look at the features in Sonar 7. Man, now this is an upgrade. I hate you Cakewalk, I just hate you. Finally, Cubase-style external hardware integration in Sonar. I might be the last holdout on planet earth, but I still love my hardware synths and effects. Of course, there's a ton more in this version offered.

It's definitely a major upgrade. And they threw in a bunch of new plug-ins as well to top it all off.
