Very good for video, not very simple to understand
I bought last month Sonar advanced and I'm globally enjoyed by the choosen themes and the training but i just regret that the speaker speaks too fast for me. I'm not english or american and I have some difficulties to understand. It could be better if the trainer speaks slowly. I about only use images...

Eli walks you through some of the new and more advanced features in Sonar Platinum, and gives a window into his working style. Thanks to these tutorials, I now know just how powerful this software is, and I have a grasp on how to use it. I had no idea how much could be done with TH2, and Eli's Audio Snap techniques were very helpful to see. There's so much to these programs that going in blind is like going into a giant unending maze. I don't feel lost anymore!
