Free Trial: Cakewalk – SONAR X2 Producer

I got an email from Cakewalk asking to try their new SONAR X2 Producer for 30 days…

I got it (1.3GB), BUT I found it too cluttered for my laptop screen, I can’t even see one track volume/pan/name on full without taking a huge part of the screen from top to bottom, and its worst when you turn the channel strip on…

I will try it with an external monitor to see if that fixes the problem…

Here is the video showing its capabilities, but I noticed they focus on a single item, not on the full cluttered screen, maybe I am the only one having this problem…

So feel free to try it and comment your thoughts on it.

Check the full set of new features at: Cakewalk.

 

Update Day 1:

I played with it for a while and I could fit 5 tracks, 3 bus channels and the piano roll, on one screen and its not very confortable…

And on the 2nd screen I got the 5 tracks but only 2 expanded, 3 bus and the master fader.

 

BTW the ProChannel Channel Strip don’t fit vertically with all the modules expanded on the external monitor on the recommended resolution for my screen… I know its not a major problem but it affects a little on the workflow until I learn all the shortcuts… wich I still have 27 days left…
