Adventure Club stated in an [interview](http://thekollection.com/meet-the-artist-adventure-club/) that they use SONAR producer by Cakewalk, "If you’re in the EDM scene you probably wouldn’t know about it. A lot of other producers will come up to us and be like “What do you use?” and we’ll say “Sonar Cakewalk” and they’ll just be like “What the FUCK is that?!” They’ll have the deer in the headlights look– no one really uses it for EDM, it’s mostly for band-oriented tracks, which is what we used to record on."more
To perfect my mixing. Although it isn't as user friendly as DAWs such as FL Studio it can go more in depth and is perfect for really adding the finishing touches to a mix and it also has an added bonus. Addictive Drums!
I've used Sonar 8.5 in the past, way before my stint with Reaper. I went through 8.5 all the way up to X3 Producer. To tell the truth it's a slick DAW, very elegant and pretty with a very classy mixer and overall layout. I loved the Pro Channel and QuadCurve EQ with spectral analyzer. X3 Producer comes with a plethora of synths and tools that are very useful for music production. Sadly I had many dpc latency problems with it because I was running Windows 7 Ultimate at the time. Nowadays I use Reaper and Windows 10 and the difference in performance is enormous. I might give it another try now that Windows is more stable than ever before and they got rid of the dpc latency problems of Windows 7.
I wouldnt go deep on what the software do or not do. This is not the right choice for electronic music (although made by Roland...), but will be definitely the right soft for bands then it has a very good console emulation (tape saturation.. compression). A very good point is the plug ins that come with the software (Melodyne, Zeta 2 , Rapture and other good E-Piano emulators as well). Since i ve decided to do mainly electronic stuff, i m giving it up for the moment.
