"To those of you who are just learning Sonar and/or Sound Forge... I have been what is referred to as a "power user" of both Sonar and Sound Forge for years and I still pick up things here and there from Scott's newsletter and books. So, if after all of these years of creating projects in a fulltime studio, I am still learning new things, just think how much you will learn!" - Charles "Chaz" Smithhisler, Haven Music Productions (www.havenmp.com).
