This is the new version, with unlimited tracks, includes mastering and compression, plus DXi drum sampler and Sound Canvas soft synth, for $149. Is there anything else out there that has these features that is a better bargain? I had looked at Sonar 2.0 XL, but this is half the price! Per my earlier thread, I want to be able to program some perc tracks, and lay down a few ideas on keys, guitar, and bass, and be able to burn it to my built in CD writer and give to folks. Whaddaya think?
