Important note to Sonar users
The new Sonar (released 2015) supports Console 1, and also supports automatic transfer of track name and number to the Console 1 system. The only known issue is that when a track is removed in Sonar, this is not reflected in Console 1 until Sonar's Undo History has been manually cleared. Sonar version X3 and lower does not support Console 1.
