How does it compare to X1?

Is it as stable as X1 is now, or as unstable as X1 was at it's launch?

Very stable for such a major release.

I've not encountered any show stoppers yet.

I've got it now. Yes, it's a good update on X1 - Not sure as it's THAT different, to justify the upgrade, but all seems well so far.

X2 has take lanes (as opposed to layers).
Worth it just for this!
On the downside, my frontier alphatrack (sold) was not happy with x2, whereas i had no problems in x1.
I have bought a contour designs shuttle prov2 to replace the alphtrack, it seems really good so far.
You need transport controls with sonar i feel, impossible to work with without.I have also bought a small Korg nano control, but have not set it up yet. I hope to use the faders for writing automation.

X2 is tons better than X1. After using this software since the midi days of Cakewalk 2, I thought X1 was something of a great idea disasterously implemented, their worst ever release. They've learned their lesson and X2 gets it right.

As long as they haven't changed some of the keyboard shortcuts again - slowed me down for weeks

As ever, think I'll hold off till the dust settles.

Oddly enough, they've changed Grid on/off back to "N". Yay!

Other than that, it's robust.
