SONAR becomes freeware

Postby Luc » Wed Apr 04, 2018 3:47 pm

World-leading DAW SONAR, with the entire SONAR Platinum feature set, is relaunching as Cakewalk by BandLab...

The old SONAR is reported to run on Linux/Wine with varying degrees of success. I haven't tested this new incarnation yet.

I think that's always included, even in software you pay for.
Not having trackers and spyware is now the exception, rather than the rule.
Sad state we came to...

One could always disconnect the lan cable :)

Though I think I've heard of fx plugins in the commercial world that won't run without net access.
Reaper/KDE/Archlinux. i7-2600k/16GB + i7-4700HQ/16GB, RME Multiface/Babyface, Behringer X32, 2 x WA-412, ADL-600, Tegeler TRC, and too much other stuff to list 8) For REAPER on Linux information: https://wiki.cockos.com/wiki/index.php/REAPER_for_Linux
