Next, we are going to cover how to open existing project files. There are two ways this can be done in SONAR:
Click the Existing Project button on the Start Screen box that is first presented when SONAR starts.
Note: You can open the Start Screen at any time by going to File > Start Screen.
Select File > Open from the menu bar across the top of SONAR’s screen.Let’s go ahead and try one of the above methods. Either of them will bring you to the Open dialog box as shown in the following figure. The Open dialog box functions like any other file browsing dialog box in Microsoft Windows.
The Go to Folder drop-down list allows you to quickly move to commonly used folders for project files in SONAR. Typically, you can get to your projects by selecting Project Files.Navigate to the Cakewalk Content folder (default location is C:\Cakewalk Content\SONAR [Artist, Professional, or Platinum]\Tutorial Projects\) and locate the project named SONAR_AudioDemo.cwb.
Let’s now use one of these methods to open the project file SONAR_AudioDemo.cwb.
