Hey all! I use the aux tracks as a means to keep things in front of me. I also will use the same methods with either aux/patch points to blend, say a DI and an Amp source, then commit to that sound and record it to the aux track. You're right though Sonar is vast and powerful, yet often overlooked. I have a video that shows an example of this on my YouTube channel if you'd like to check it out sometime. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0gwN1pV9h0
Hey Robert, you're the Home Studio Simplified podcast guy. Nice to know you work in Sonar also.
Nice job on the video. Good podcast, man.
I've starting using aux tracks within folders for things like Warren's vocal thickening trick or duplicating a lead vocal and distorting it or creating a white noise track and gating it to the lead vocal and then blending those in with the lead vocal on choruses, etc.
