Re:SONAR 5 and WINDOWS 7
Thanks for your replies, folks. My hubby went to bed and he's the one working on this, so I will have him answer tomorrow. He seems to have gotten a few things working, but it's probably like you said, "probably won't work well" Wonder what the upgrade to 8.5 costs? Thing is I haven't written music for a few years but definitely want to be able to when "the spirit moves again". Be back tomorrow and thanks again!
My guess is Sonar 5 will work fine, however, what soundcard are you using? If its not the built-in soundchip, you need to get a Windows 7 compatible driver for the soundcard.
