I'm considering giving up on Sonar 3 and moving to something better. Anyone
have any recommendations for Windows XP?

Why are you moving away from Sonar?

Give us an idea of what you want to do, and how you
wish to work.

What about Sonar 3 are you looking to improve on? Opinions vary widely
about this sort of thing and the answer really depends on what you're
looking for. "Stick with Sonar" is even a valid answer in many
circumstances ;)

I would look into Samplitude. Version 8 is right around the corner and
they do offer crossgrades. Check out their site (www.samplitude.com)
and demo. They have an excellent forum with the developers on there
all the time to answer questions, etc. Highly recommended.

It's just so buggy - However, I decided to just stick with it for now until
I can afford (and justify) Nuendo. I upgraded from Sonar 3 Studio to Sonar
producer today for $99.

Now, I won't have to worry about all the nasty bugs I was dealing with. I'll
have new ones! :)

Good deal.

I'm hardly a Sonar power user--but of all the complaints I have about it,
bugginess and stability are not among them. Although most of my use has been
with the 3.1.1 version which presumably is better than the 3.0 one.

Ain't that the way of the world!

Good luck on whatever you end up with. As long as the tunes be crankin,
the tools are only a means to the end...

I think it might be like that old Apogee quote, "that's not a bug...that's a
FEATURE".

Jack,

Can you be more specific about the bugs you are experiencing with Sonar?

Some prefer Sonar, some prefer other programs. But it isn't generally
criticised for not doing what it claims to do.

What do you mean by "buggy"? If it crashes on your system, I'm
afraid you may find any similar program does the same.

Are you aware that Nuendo and Cubase SX are essentially the same
program? Unless you need the few additional features of Nuendo
(mostly aimed at post-production work in the media industry) you're
wasting your money buying Nuendo instead of Cubase.

What, exactly, are your problems with Sonar?
