Using the Staff View

As a classically trained musician, I went straight for SONAR's Staff view when I first started sequencing. (To be completely honest, it was Cakewalk 3.0, ten versions ago!) It just made sense to use the language I knew so well as a starting point when everything else about the program was so new to me. In the long run I have found that I use it less, because the Piano Roll is more efficient and represents MIDI data more precisely than the Staff view. This is because of all the things musicians take for granted when they see traditional notation, such as the different meanings of a staccato marking from one tempo to another. Still, SONAR's notation capabilities have many uses, as you'll see.
