Back in the old forums there were statements made about the lack of videos made using Sonar suggesting its unpopularity. Well, there have been a plethora of quite recently uploaded video tutorials on YouTube using Cakewalk By BandLab. For any newbie coming into these forums asking questions, I think a sticky should be made of these videos which are very informative. Below are a few YouTube channels I've found.

Glad to see my suggestion has been implemented. I've been around since Home Studio 2002 and haven't seriously looked at another DAW for that length of time.

Except the user guides are nothing like that... so the exaggeration is neither appropriate nor logical.

Secondly...  User Guides and Tutorials can be done in multiple ways...  Take Blackmagic Design, for instance.  They have a Fairlight Tutorial Book with 4-5GB of  footage that comes with it so that you can follow along with each lesson.

So no...  It's not that audio tutorials have never had audio.  It's just that the audio tutorials that you've taken/read have failed to provide it.  Providing sample audio and tutorials so that users can follow along has been very common, for at least a decade...  Adobe, iZotope, and others have all done this  for several years... 😉

Ear training from a YouTube video...  Cute. 

C'mon dude, I said broad strokes, even Spotify/Apple have some kind of compression or distortion, and they're the most consumed music distribution methods.

Back in the day, like, from 2000 to late 2010's, actual audio in an audio tutorials were something quite rare to find.

Separating DAW/Software tutorials (which, I do prefer them writen) from Mixing and training, to be honest, in which world I'm living where people prefer audio tutorials to be writen and with no actual audio in them!?

We're in the Late 2010s.  Adobe and other companies have had tutorials online for years.  Cakewalk themselves did tons of videos on SONAR, for years.  They started on YouTube, 8 years ago, so the idea that there was some lack of video content about this DAW is a bit of a stretch - considering there is very little value in duplicating this type of content.

You'll find similar with Pro Tools, Media Composer, Premiere Pro, Audition, Samplitude, and a host of  other software.  There has been an increase in video content for all of this software, over the years, as mediums like YouTube have increased in popularity.  The only thing that has been wanting, is the other stuff - which has increasingly disappeared.

You're living in whatever world you choose to live in, where what you prefer is what is apparently preferable to everyone; and what everyone else should see.

Again, I didn't say "Death to YouTube Tutorials."  I simply stated that written or PDF documentation and actual help files don't need to die to make room for them.

Read the thread.  Keep things in their proper perspective... dude.

Dude. You made your point clearly  on the first page of the thread, and several of us agreed that we need both.

But since then, if you haven't noticed, the staff has moved this thread into the tutorials forum.

The thread topic is "Cakewalk By BandLab Video Tutorials".

Your last sentence explains where you're coming from. If your main concern is learning how something sounds, then of course a video would be more helpful. There are probably thousands of videos already out there that cover all aspects of mixing.

I personally don't find them very useful for reference.  For example, say I want to know how to set an automation node to specific level. I don't want to search for a video on automation, watch the whole thing hoping that at some point it answers my question. With text, I can just go to what I'm looking for. 

Fortunately, I still have the manual for Platinum. I also still make frequent use of Scott Garrigus's SONAR  X3 Power. When you need a clear explanation of how to do something, his books can't be beat.

Indeed, software learning from videos can be tiresome and, sometimes, even counterintuitive; the lack of a proper index es one key problem too - maybe, small videos for VFX and CG3D they works best -.

Recording and Mixing, instruments and music learning, broad ear training, on the other hand, videos or writen material with audio is infinitley better imo

(Sorry, I've meant to late 2000s, before de YT explosion) Before YT and streaming you rarely had any actual audio in audio articles, sites like SOS, TweakHeadz, Mix Magazine, etc, very sparingly had audio examples. But I have this feeling that the pro audio community well past the first half of the decade past the millennium still had a secrecy aura around them that, slowly, some sites, magazines, forums, and, lastly, streaming, knocked down (thankfully)

And, I've also stated like you, that software learning from writen material can be easier thanks to indexes or precise things to look for. Is the audio learning part that I think gets much easier throughout videos or actual audio. Of course, the more material we have, in any form, the better for everyone
