I've used Cakewalk and Sonar for years. I went that direction, rather than Pro Tools, because I have always been PC based rather than MAC based. I've never been happy with the performance with Sonar on a PC. I've increased Ram, I've changed my hard drive to a SDD to increase the Input/output. The software just never seems to work fast and smooth which needlesly makes tasks longer in working with the software. Sometimes the system "stutters" when I'm recording and then I need to re-record. What computer and/or hardware upgrades might anyone suggest in boosting the performance. Note that the PC would ONLY be used for SONAR X2, and the O/S could be Windows 7 or Windows 8. Note that Sonar X2 does support Windows 8.

What type of processor are you using?

Also a decent audio card is important.  I have this card,

and love it.  

I have 24gb of RAM, i7 and this M-audio card.   I have 0 problems with stutter or anything else.  I haven't found a limit to how many tracks i can have (the most i've used is 20 or so). For audio software, i'm using Audition and Propellerheads Record.    I think the part that help the most was the Audio card,  but if your processor is too weak, that can be an issue.

I switched over to the exernal USB Audiophile this past weekend. I also switched over to a laptop. The laptop is overall more powerful although the hard drive is slower RPM than the desktop. So far so good.
