try reaper
http://www.reaper.fm/

60 days free. After that you can pay 60$ for personal use or 225$ for commercial use.
It's a very good daw.

Just took a quick look at the specs for Sonar LE - What kind of trouble are you having with EZDrummer? Since Sonar LE supports VST's you should be fine... Also did a quick Google and others seem to be using them together...

Can you tell us what's happening? What version of the software are you using?

Dave

P.S. +1 for Reaper if you're looking for a change. Love it!

It looks like the current version of Sonar LE is 8, so that could be your problem.

See the compatibility section from the EZDrummer site: http://www.toontrack.com/products.asp?item=7

Reaper is exactly the same regardless of the license you purchase, it's just a question of whether you are using it for yourself, or in a commercial environment where you're earning money. There's more on that at the Reaper website, but you'll be fine with the personal version.

You may use the discounted license if any of the following is true:

QUOTE
You are an individual, using REAPER only for personal use.
You are an individual or business, using REAPER for commercial use, and the yearly gross revenue does not exceed USD $20,000.
You are an educational or non-profit organization.


And yes, EZDrummer works fine in Reaper... I use it as well as Superior Drummer all the time in Reaper.

As Hexabuzz said there's no difference between reaper personal and commercial license... it's a way to make reaper affordable for non commercial uses. smile.gif

I started with Reaper ( didn't go far ) bought an audiobox that came with studio one, when I figured out I had to upgrade to insert any vst's I went back to Reaper, this has helped me a lot

REAPER is probably your best option smile.gif Glad to see such good answer in the thread!!

Let us know if you need help getting going on reaper, and check out the vid posted in this thread.

Reaper is free to use, cross platform, and everybody has a copy. So in general it's just the best bet all around. Great to see everyone agreeing on something smile.gif

Cakewalk Sonar LE daw like version 1

Just purchased Reaper last night and wow its SOooooooo much better then my previous Sonar Le

when I record over a drum track my timing is like almost always on the beat on my other one I had to do like 50 Takes just to get my timing close to being on beat

and it was still alil frustrating getting Ez drummer to play on Reaper "ONLY" until I found out my Ez drum VST plug in was not in the folder it should be * I had some help figuring this out but once I moved it in reapers "FX" folder i could finally use ez drummer .which I could not use for like over 6 months .... I just want to say thanks alot guys I'll be recording something on it soon
