    Fwiw, this could just be Gibson's way of putting the brand up for sale. I'm sure they've gotten a number of serious inquiries to buy the product line since the announcement. There's no real reason to get rid of Sonar, it's a fine product and people are buying/using it. It just might have grown too big for Gibson to manage or want to deal with. A smaller software company might do fine with the meager revenue stream, as their one and only product. Gibson doesn't have a lot of software options in their portfolio, so when they bought it I'm sure they figured they would share some of the development and support costs with what they already had but that may not have panned out.

    I've been a Cakewalk user since X1, moved over to Studio One recently, seems really stable, and I was about to buy a Presonus Faderport 16 anyway, so when I seen a 50% off to previous Cakewalk owners, it was a no-brainer.
    The only thing I don't like, is the track/arranger view, looks crap compared to my Sonar Platinum, since I uploaded and tweaked some ThemeEditor files.
    Can't win them all I guess.

    Do you mean the track/arranger in Studio One vs Sonar's?
    I'm hanging in with Sonar 8.5, and really like how I've got it configured. **
    -Have alt's -Reaper, and jumped on that great Samplitude bundle that was offered dirt cheap! , just haven't been forced to get off my butt' and dive in yet.

    ** That would be- ' Nice and bright, great contrast and easy to see close or 'ten feet a way (tracking session while doing headphones at the mixer table anyone?

    Can't/won't hang with the so many I see 'vague contrast over 'dark.

    No thanks

    I guess I'll be sticking with Splat until it quits working.
    I have to much money invested to just abandon. Been a user for over a decade.

    I ended up getting a new PC for cheap and it had Windows 10, so I tried Sonar X3 and so far so good on compatibility. I'm on borrowed time, just hoping that time is another 3 or 4 years. Otherwise, Reaper here I come.
