I have never forgiven Gibson for destroying Steinberger... :)

I thought Roland owned them?

Perhaps they're ditching their crappy software and are going to make us some nice analog synths? :D

Sonar is a great software and I used to use it from version 5 to 7 but then I got a Mac and protools. The problem from a a business perspective is sonar is not cross platform and its been left behind in that regard which in turn looses customers. I'm guessing it must have an exclusive contract with Microsoft. I hope it moves with the times.
