    @johnniegoat posted about it in the smiles thread last week sometime.

    Never used it, never needed to. But it sounded interesting. And free, at least I could get it and figure out how to use later. :D

    But then I forgot. So, thanks for posting about it. I grabbed it this time and installed earlier. Trying to figure out why I can't get it to hear my Vypyr. It sees it, but I can't record from it. Anyway, I'll get there. :)

    I'e used Cakewalk Sonar 8.5 since 2008 and it's an absolute monster of a DAW. Definitely on par with the competition and I honestly never felt the need to upgrade beyond as it works flawlessly.

    I gave it a try but I like ableton too much despite it's reputation as an EDM daw.

    I've used Sonar for many years. I also don't see the need to upgrade to the latest version. The version I have does everything I need.

    I'd be interested in a proper Linux version. I hear Reaper is working on one.

    My next DAW will be Bitwig Studio, running natively in Linux.

    I like what I'm seeing with bitwig but it's so expensive just for hobby..
