        Comments about Cakewalk SONAR X1 Studio - Music Production Software (Educational Discount):

        I use this product mainly for music production and music creation.

        I like the interface conslole views an plethora of Midi devices and edit tools available for use.

        I am not to fond of how incompatible some project files are with certain operating systems and the hoops you have to jump through to find drivers in order to operate specific audio devices or project files.

              I bought this for a class in audio production. I haven't really learned how to use it yet, but the sample audio files sound amazing, so I'm hopeful that I can create some really great music. As someone without a lot of audio editing experience, the interface is very intimidating. So many buttons! Hopefully I'll learn what they all do when I take my class, but if you don't have a lot of experience you may want to look for something a little more streamlined.
