I'm a Cakewalk / Sonar user since it started in DOS :D ... still using Sonar Platinum which was the newest version prior Bandlab. I haven't installed from Bandlab yet, because I just haven't needed to, I think it is virtually identical to Platinum.

I have many years of existing projects in Sonar, there's too much effort to convert them to a new DAW, so I expect I'll maintain Sonar for a long time even if I move to another DAW.

I'm kind of watching & waiting & biding my time to see how well Bandlab will manage Cakewalk

I bought Studio One V3 (when it briefly seemed Sonar was gone for good) but I haven't installed it, so that's my "plan B". Studio One V4 has some nice features but isn't a must have for me.

Well it is but it's had a years worth of bug fixes, stability updates and new features , there's no reason not to really.

Thanks, I had not seen that consolidated list of enhancements, that's helpful, and you make a good point.

I do plan to update this year ... when I upgrade to a new Windows 10 PC. My current Windows 7 PC is 9 years old, and has evolved, due to issues with other hardware / software, into a somewhat non-standard config that has a low tolerance for change. So if it ain't broke ... I don't want to mess with it.
