Eric Thompson, It seems that you and I used Sonar about the same. PreSonus gave me some installation issues with ToonTrack (EZ Mix and Superior Drummer) that I racked my head on for about three days, but we finally solved the issue last night. I got to finally do some test recording last night and the platform is very similar to Sonar, other than there is a learning curve on commands (R=Record and so forth, which I cant seem to make apply to PreSonus).
So far, I am liking it. Still a lot to learn, but I am dangerous enough now to write and record which makes me happy.
