    The Sonar deception (?)

    There were emails Buy or Upgrade to Sonar 8 and get the next paid upgrade free.
    When you go their site and click a link the language changes to "paid update".

    Sonar 8.5 is coming so users are confused if they will have to pay for 8.3-8.5, or those who bought an upgrade will get 9 for free.

    The people at Cakewalk haven't been real specific about it either.

    No deception... they've been clear. Next version is 8.5, and no new version will be released -other than the 8.5 update - at least through next winter.

    Sonar 8.5 will be a paid update, although Cakewalk has not announced the pricing details yet. There are tons of its features listed here.

    Anyone who purchases Sonar 8 now can take advantage of the offer you mention for a free update to 8.5. Buying Sonar 8 now will not get anyone a free upgrade to 9 (which isn't even on the radar yet, and probably won't be until 2010).

    Which I hope turns out to be a good thing. I've pretty much walked away from using Sonar because of the expensive annual upgrade.
