I've been using Cakewalk Sonar for about 10 years now (since version 7 all the way up to Platinum), I know it inside and out.
I recently purchased a PreSonus StudioLive AR16 USB Mixer. The quality of the mixer impressed me. That also got me into using both Capture and the free version of S1. What really struck me is how solid and stable the program is compared to Sonar.
I am now using the 30 day eval version of the full S1 and while it's taking me some time to learn where everything is I'm loving it so far. I am also surprised by how quickly it loads large patches in VSTs like Spectrasonics Trilian that take much longer to load in Sonar.
I was not in the market for a new DAW but I'm so impressed with S1 that I am strongly considering the switch. My question is: does anyone have suggestions or comments on switching to S1 or reasons I shouldn't switch?
