Realising that Mackie Tracktion might be a dead-end (much as I like the workflow), I've got my hands on a 30-day demo of Cakewalk Sonar 8. I can see the capabilities of the package, though the interface is a touch 'fussy' for my liking. It doesn't seem to like my favourite amp-sim VST and crashed when I load it - I found I could workaround by loading it into an effects chainer, but it's still not encouraging. I'm quite impressed with the theoretical capabilities of the software, though, so let's see what I can do with it.

It's also been established now that Infest 09 will not occur. This is a pity as I've been holding back booking for any festival (I have a hold on some WGT hotel rooms that I need to confirm by month's end), and now I don't know what to do. WGT line-up is about two-thirds confirmed and so far I count 4 bands from my hit-list, and if Die Form headline the Schauspielhaus (as I think is likely), I can forget about making any other venue that day barring late-night shows. Maybe I should just eye up European tour dates for choice bands and take weekend trips over to see them?
