I spent a while trying to optimise settings and to get use to the new layout and controls (upgraded from Sonar 2). Here is a little one minute long jammin with a cool drum loop that I saved from my foolin' around. Fretless 51 plugged direct into my sound card. Little Lexicon Reverb blended in and some Toneworks compression & EQ. Medium Saturation 15 IPS tape sim as well. silly little groove I don't have my normal "mastering" speakers and headphones hooked up so sorry if it's blown out on what you listen on. It sounds pretty good on my 2.1 setup. Hopefully I'll be upgrading to an E-MU 0404 sound card next month. Currently I'm using an old SoundBlaster Live.
