"Don't believe the hype..."
Chuck D, DJ Johnny "Juice"
Public Enemy

"...believe the results. With an incredible work load and hectic schedule, SONAR 3 Producer Edition exceeded our requirements, and helped us maintain our workflow."

Public Enemy recorded and mixed their new album How Do You Sell Soul To A Soul-less People Who Sold Their Soul? in its entirety using SONAR 3 Producer Edition. With it's cutting edge mixing environment, unparalleled looping technology, integrated VSampler DXi digital sampler, support for VST and DXi instruments, studio effects like the Lexicon Pantheon reverb and Sonitus:fx suite, and dedicated support for control surfaces like the Tascam FW-1884 (Public Enemy's control surface for the album), SONAR represents the best choice for those looking for professional results on the PC.

"SONAR is Public Enemy's choice because it's truly inspiring to use, it delivers high quality audio, extensive MIDI editing, and the freedom to use our existing hardware for thousands less."
