After auditioning the Sony Express FX Reverb demo that comes with Sonar X1 I'm interested to know if anyone here bought their little Express package and what you think about it.

The reverb sounds super nice to me. Smooth, natural and transparent. Never grainy.

Anybody else like this one?

Also noticed its a DirectX plug. Has anyone had prob's using DirectX plugs in X1?

Hey DS,

Are you sure those Express FX came with SONAR? As far as I know, I've never heard of Cakewalk bundling anything from Sony. Normally those Express FX come with Sony's Sound Forge editor.

I haven't really used those Express FX, so can't really comment on the quality. I know they are basic FX that Sony includes so that users have some FX to use with their audio.

DirectX plugs should work fine except if you're running Windows 64-bit. DirectX plugs don't usually work under 64-bit.

Well, I do have Sony Movie Studio HD Platinum )which includes Sound Forge Studio) that I installed on this new machine. Maybe it came with that, but I'm surprised the effects would show up in Sonar. Nice.

The reverb freaks me out, it's so smooth. I looked it up online and it seems the basic bundle is less than $14.

I chose to run everything at 32 bit so running DirectX plugs won't be a problem then.

Thanks for your reply Scott.

Ah ha! Okay, yeah... they came with Sound Forge Studio.

Yeah, sometimes manufacturers will keep their plug-ins open to be used in multiple hosts. I think you'll find that you can use the Sonitus fx that came with SONAR inside of other hosts too.

If you're running everything at 32-bit, then you're all set in terms of plug-ins.

Since I have SF8 ( I'm pretty sure I started with 7), I have used them "all" (more or less) and found them to be excellent. AnnMarie has some form of Vegas, but I suppose I would have more plug-ins with mine. I also got CDArchitect and the NoiseReduction options.
I really like their infinite reverb for fading out really long tails! I'd better watch out or I will talk myself into upgrading! LOL

ps It's good to know that Sony Movie Studio HD Platinum comes with SF Studio.
