The Cakewalk Sonar Professional Music Production Software is an advanced digital audio workstation that provides you with the professional tools needed to create high quality music on your PC. It includes many new features that have been designed to make, making music as easy and creative as possible.
Sonar is packed with 18 great virtual instruments, including Z3TA+ Classic for creating modern electronic dance sounds and 16 new drag and drop amps. These virtual amps are more than just amp emulators, they let you go in depth and create tones you'll never be able to create on a real amp. The low-latency audio engine makes recording guitar feel very natural. It also comes with both Addictive Drums 2 and Session Drummer 3, allow you to professionally input drums using professionally recorded samples from Roland, Steven Slate and many more.
This 64-bit/384kHz audio engine keeps you sound as clear as possible for editing and mixing. This, combined with unlimited amount of audio, MIDI and instrument tracks, and a huge collection of helpful recording options, Sonar lives up to being the most advanced music production experience available today.
The Skylight interface is what sets Sonar aside from others. This extremely versatile interface gives you many options for customising the look and functionality. It does this by breaking up the main control bar into different modules. These modules can be then changed in size, function and placement across the bar. With a cleaver Smart tool, you can move through the modules and always have the functions you need just a click away. With more than 50 FX chain, you'll always be finding inspiration from simple reverbs and chorus' to powerful guitar effects pedals.
Sonar Artist comes packed with 25 powerful plug-in effects processors. One these is the Essential Suite, a feature that allows you to power up your sound and smooth out your mix. For easy A/B listening, the mix recall allows you to save and switch between your mix scenes. Sonar saves you a lot of time when trying to do advanced mixing tasks allowing you to mix for radio, video, podcast, or MP3 and bounce all of them at once.
