For reference, I would like to find/purchase some examples of locally-produced trax that have been mixed in Cakewalk Sonar, using only plugins available in PE version 8, consisting of mic'd electric/acoustic guitars, SD2, DimPro, TruePianos, TTS-1 soft synths, with name/contact info of the mixing engineer(s).
Long time Cakewalk user, since DOS days. Got 8 and am deciding whether to spring for the 8.5 upgrade. There are a number of Sonar users in Murfreesboro, and between us I'd bet we could honor your request. My question is, you're pretty specific with your request. Are you deliberating a purchase or are comparing DAWs for research or publication?
I am tracking an instrumental project in my home studio and want to A/B my mixes to productions using similar instrumentation and the same plugins that I have access to in Sonar 8 PE. It’d also be handy if the engineer could be contacted with questions, and maybe eventually do a mixing-instruction session.
