Customizing the Track View

SONAR 3's Track view is the default view of your music and your primary workspace. It is the one view that cannot be closed without closing the current project, although it can be modified in numerous ways or minimized. You'll notice that the Track view is divided into two spaces, the Track pane on the left and the Clips pane on the right. Next we'll explore ways to make the Track view display exactly what you need to see as you work—no more and no less.

Creating and Naming Tracks

As is typical of recording/sequencing programs, SONAR 3 organizes your musical ideas into tracks. As you saw while playing songs in Chapter 2, tracks represent a sequence of audio or MIDI information arranged along a timeline. Events that are seen in parallel in tracks take place simultaneously at playback. SONAR lets you create as many tracks as you need to hold and coordinate your musical ideas. When you need another track, here's how to make one.
