We’d love to hear your thoughts on this in the comments section below! Cakewalk by BandLab is available for free download via (66.9 MB download size, EXE installer, 64-bit standalone software for Windows 7 or higher). About Tracktion vs. Sonar, I actually have lots of experience with both.
Sonar was my first, and now am a HUGE tracktion fan. The latest sonar probably doesn’t have the track/clip manipulation that tracktion has, (does free T6 still give you the Melodyne essentials?)
