Introduction to Sonar and DAW’s

Any D.A.W (Digital Audio Workstation) can be very daunting when you open it for the first time.

There are so many menus, buttons and sliders to view and operate that it can be a very

overwhelming experience.

This is why I have decided to organize this basic course to assist beginners and shed some

light on the matter.

The key to operating any D.A.W is orientation. Knowing where to find things is essential.

Once you know where those things are you will need to understand what they do.

As you become more experienced you will find that most D.A.W’s have multiple methods of

performing the same tasks, once you discover these various functions you will see that the software

is not so complicated after all.

Once you learn to navigate around one D.A.W you will easily be able to use others too.

They all work in the same manner, they just have different menu layouts.

This course is designed for simplicity and ease of use. In just 90 minutes you will have a basic understanding

of Sonar and begin making your first recordings with confidence!


About the Course

During this course you will learn the following things:

  • Opening and saving a new project.
  • Importing backing tracks.
  • Enabling your audio interface and configuring it within Sonar.
  • Navigating around the menus, basic operation and orientation.
  • Selecting and arming a track to record audio.

How does it work?

The course takes place by connecting on a Skype video call using the share screen function.

On my computer I have a window opened with Sonar, and I will invite you to share my screen which

means that you will see it too. As I navigate around Sonar with my mouse and explain all of the various

stages of recording you will see everything I am doing in real time.

All you will need is a Skype account and a microphone to communicate with me.

Skype can be downloaded here.

During the session I will gladly answer your questions and talk you through all the processes that

we will be covering.

You can take this course privately with me or as a group.   Sonar DAW 90 minute beginner course Skype basic functions
