What’s New:

SONAR Membership
We’re constantly improving the SONAR experience—so now all SONAR versions include 12 months of SONAR Membership. Receive new features, maintenance updates, custom content, new presets, and more every month, as well as free tech support. Best of all: you keep everything you receive, even if you don’t renew your membership.

Command Center
Cakewalk’s new Command Center is the easiest way to manage downloads, installs and updates to your software—get started with the included download card to receive the very latest software version and activate your SONAR membership.

Mix Recall
Never second-guess yourself on a mix again. Mix Recall lets you save and switch to various mix scenes for easy, one-click comparisons. Swap out effects, fader positions, or every parameter so that you can restore an original mix, create remixes, or just entertain a client’s suggestion. Mix tracks specifically for radio, podcast, video, or mp3, and then bounce every version in a single export.

Pattern Tool
The only variable separating you from your creativity is time, and the Pattern Tool—which sits in the Smart Tool palette for instant access—is all about saving time. Forget cut and paste: Simply select and paint MIDI loops and patterns across the Piano Roll View and Track View.

REmatrix Solo
REmatrix Solo is a zero-latency convolution reverb ProChannel module from Overloud/MoReVox. REmatrix Solo is a streamlined, single-layer version of the acclaimed REmatrix. It features 100 Impulse Response (IR) presets, including plates, halls, rooms, early reflections, and specialty spaces - plus the ability to import your own IRs.

FX Stacking
The award-winning Skylight interface continues to evolve, and with stacked FX, you can view as many effects as your screen resolution can handle—in both Track and Console views.

Expandable Sends
SONAR’s console view expands the sends section to—well, as many sends as you want to see. Now you can see every aspect of your signal path and create a more productive environment when working on complex mixes.

The New Control Bar
Stack, scroll, minimize, and maximize any and all Control Bar modules for one-click access to your favorite tools. When collapsed, hovering the mouse over a module displays its parameters for an even more efficient Skylight environment.

New detection algorithms re-boot AudioSnap into a next-generation toolkit. Stretch a song from one tempo to another, sync your recordings to audio loops, tighten your drums and convert them to MIDI…and the new level of performance comes wrapped in a new look and new layout.

Direct Stream Digital (DSD)
SONAR breaks the barrier for affordable DSD import, export, and conversion. Now you can produce better-than-CD quality material with a few clicks, archive your masters to an audibly superior format, and join the world of high-resolution audio.

16 Virtual Custom Amps
From country to metal, bass to funk, classic rock to futuristic, SONAR’s 16 new drag-and-drop amps aren’t about emulating existing amps—but creating idealized amps that can exist only in the virtual world. Get ready to change how you look at amp simulations.

Stunning New FX Chains
From single-knob utilities, to boutique digital stompboxes, to sound-generating environments and additional effects, these 50+ new FX chains will kick-start your creativity and streamline the production process.
