maybe they sell the DAW to someone actually capable of fixing its bugs ;)  ...  but what will they bundle with Philips audio if sonar is dead ? (audacity probably :D )
They will bundle cubase or ableton, as they did and do with Tascam interfaces. I guess Sonar never was in plans (short leaving bundling with some US- models was Craig's personal initiative).

With all respect to CW, if they have not manage to fix nor advance Sonar engine since 8 (really more since 6), especially with monthly update, the probability that could happened in the future is almost zero. Gibson had to take that under control, check/revise the team, invest money into marketing (remember ad videos produced by CW itself...) But that is not what Gibson does for its companies.

Well.. I am really PO by this news... My project is almost "obsolete" now, and not by me.

But lets try to support obsolete device in obsolete DAW by obsolete plug-in  :)



above quote from other thread

it will be at least 3 years i think before the last sonar ever made will start to become outdated .. how many still use X3? they will have to crowbar it out of my dead,cold hands before i give it up :D


its early yet,they might reconsider when they realize they just pissed off 300,000 potential Gibson (or now Philips brand audio products) customers

I also think about what can be the next...
For the moment, the only other DAW  C++ API is Reaper.
But I am going to ask other explicity, I have started with Mixcraft. I do not need public API, AZ Controller is closed source so can be bound to particular DAW throw NDA code.
I guess Presonus will not be interested, they produce and sell own surfaces, no reason to have concurrents.  The same with Ableton (apart from Python, which they use for "other" controllers).

The recent news of Cakewalk's reconfiguration (it is apparently be shut down by Gibson) has left me wondering what other DAW;s do with control surfaces.  AZ Controller in Sonar has gotten my surface controllers finally working with Sonar.  A quick look at Presonus' Studio ONE pro v3.5 gives me an idea that my MCU PRO will be somewhat functional in Studio One.  my VS-100 configured as a Mackie device shows the transport controls are functional, which does allow the foot pedal to be used as a remote device to start and stop recording. TouchOSC which I use for remote audio recording control wont be working in Studio ONE. 

AZ, can you keep us up to date with your exploration of other DAW's and control surface compatibility? Not that I will be leaving Sonar soon, but I thought I should start looking.  Thanks,  Bart

  I did some tests today and it seems that 26 is the maximun number of channels that can be monitored successfully. I used 2 different Midi interfaces and the results were the same. Maybe this info helps

I am almost sure that is the "buffer overflow", on the device side.
I am going to implement configurable delay, so "Wait at least X ms after sending Y SysEx packets". Then you can test what works better, 1x20ms, 24x100ms, etc.

  Could it be that the problem is not in the time between messages but in the number of messages transmitted over a certain period of time(Midi buffer overflow)?

 Let me do some tests in bacward order (from 48ch to 47ch ... etc) before starting the coding

But lets try to support obsolete device in obsolete DAW by obsolete plug-in  :)

From the messages and the documentation, it is clear I need 2 build-in things in AZ Controller:
1) quantization/delay for SysEx (up to 20ms, specified in the documentation)
2) build-in MIDI echo cancellation (what we do now in the preset)
Can take some time.
