Back to first impressions.

Mostly I love it, coming from someone who really doesn't get deeply into Sonar.

It just seems so much more accessible. Can't explain it but I can actually get around to the different views pretty easily. Really fun to explore.

The one thing that's not feeling that great is the tool set. I seem to be changing between 'Smart' and 'Select' a LOT to do things that seems like could be one with simply the select tool. Like extending a groove clip requires the smart tool and can't be moved with the 'select' tool. Or at least I can't get it figured out yet.

I've got a few more specific issues I'll post in another thread but again, first impression? A huge thumbs up. Nice work you guys.

Humbly Yours

Not sure if this will help, but have you watched this?

Thanks A1 - Yeah I've seen the video but I'm probably stuck in my head somewhere and need some time to get it figured out. Right now I'm switching tools constantly - so I've got a lot learn.

48 hours later, at last!

First impression: it opened up my last opened 8.5 project just fine. And it's purdy too. I'm looking forward to a bit more in-depth analysis tomorrow. It's already after midnight and as thrilled as I am to have it installed, my eyes just won't stay open much longer.

So, did someone already win that coffee mug?  :)

Lol!

Glad you are up and running!

I'm in the midst of the groove3 tutorials, and after about 4 in I'm impressed so far. Being a visual guy they are helping me to understand how powerful it's going to be!
