Chapter 8, "Mixing Your Project," will show you how to set up and mix your project. You will see how to route your tracks to busses, how to set up and use envelopes, how to pan from one speaker to another, add reverb, set up equalization, as well as other techniques. Chapter 9, "Summary and Credits," finishes up by reviewing what you have learned throughout your training. It also closes out with final credits as well.
One thing that I must point out is that Alfred's Teach Yourself SONAR was written for SONAR 8 and while it also works just fine for version 8.5, the latest version SONAR X1 has a different interface setup. What this means is that when the author is explaining some of the menus and places within the interface, they may be a bit different in the newest version. That in no way diminishes the overall effectiveness of this training - it just may cause some confusion if you are trying to follow along.
That said, I found the training to be very well done and very informative and will be especially useful for the beginning or novice user to SONAR. The author does a very good job of taking you from the setup through the recording, editing, mixing, and creating a finished file - keep in mind that while it is just a short segment of song, he does touch all the basics that you would need to use SONAR. If you are just getting started with SONAR, if you have the SONAR product and are struggling with creating a solid workflow, then I can easily recommend Alfred's Teach Yourself SONAR .
