They say that this Fall, a free Alpha version of SONAR OS X--which comes with a set of Cakewalk plug-ins and ProChannel modules, works with any Core Audio interface, and includes features like the award-winning Skylight User Interface and critically acclaimed ProChannel customizable channel strip--will become available to gauge the interest of doing a full Mac port.
