Other feature:
Active Controller Technology (ACT) — dramatically
changes the way you work with your MIDI controllers and control
surfaces. With ACT you are always in control. As you navigate
through SONAR, ACT automatically remaps MIDI controllers and
control surfaces to provide complete tactile control over virtual
instruments, effects, and SONAR’s mix parameters.
Synth Rack — Redesigned for SONAR 6, the new Synth Rack
provides a control center for all of your virtual instruments. The
Synth Rack gives you immediate access to controls of all virtual
instruments populating the rack—without having to open
individual instruments. Browse presets, automate, freeze, or even
link together controls from multiple instruments, all from one
central location. Additional highlights include: find instruments
quickly with customizable synth icons and names displayed in large
type; Mute, Solo; Freeze, QuickFreeze; toggle through Next/Previous
Preset; Read and Write automation enable buttons; place automation
data anywhere via Automation Track Selector.
Console View — SONAR’s console view has always
offered complete flexibility for mixing professionals. Its
redesigned, fresh look for version 6 is easier to read and to
navigate, vastly improving workflow. The new user interface
complements a comprehensive bussing architecture, concise
automation controls, real-world metering ballistics, integrated
per-channel parametric EQ with plot display, and true surround
busses and panning. The dynamic console allows you to show or hide
any module in the console including I/O settings, EQ plot and
controls, effects bin with assignable controls, sends, read/write
automation enable, mute, solo, record, interleave, phase, input
monitoring, faders, stereo and surround pan controls, and
large/small track icons. Show/hide all tracks, buses, or mains with
a simple click. Toggle between narrow or wide channel strip views,
either globally or per each individual channel. Also, new
automation indicators show when a control has automation data
linked to it, and updated Quick Groups provide on-the-fly grouping
of tracks or busses.
Customizable User Interface — Total control in a
customizable workspace: SONAR 6 puts all your favorite features
right at your fingertips in an inviting and flexible
user-customizable interface. Complete user control with
customizable menus for easy organization and grouping of SONAR
functions; global toolbars where you can show/hide any button;
create your own track view control layouts; track view controls can
be reordered with a simple Alt+drag move; audio hardware port
naming; and custom color schemes with saturation, hue, and
brightness controls.
Plug-in organization and support
Further adding to SONAR’s unique level of
user-customization is an enhanced and fully integrated Plug-in
Manager that lets you create, edit, and save custom menu layout
files. Organize plug-in menus to make finding the right plug-ins
easier. Group them by user-defined type (Compressors, Reverbs,
Delays, etc.) or by style (Vintage, Digital, Abstract, etc.).
Choose a different layout at any time on the fly.
In addition, VST support is seamlessly integrated into SONAR
6 and no longer requires an external VST to DX adapter. All VST
specific operations are now performed completely within SONAR or
the Plug-In Manager.
Track Perfection
AudioSnap — provides complete, non-destructive,
multi-track control over audio timing, allowing for instantaneous
timing correction/manipulation of recorded parts, quantization of
an audio track with the rhythm of another, lock multiple tracks
into the same groove, instantly change project tempo, quickly
convert audio rhythms to MIDI data, slip-stretch clips to a new
time or length—even quantize multiple tracks in relation to
each other.
AudioSnap gives the user the choice of multiple algorithms to
provide the ultimate flexibility and sound quality when working
with different audio sources. Algorithms include: Percussion Mode,
Groove Clip, and iZotope Radius, for the finest in high-quality
time stretching.
Session Drummer 2 — designed from the ground up to
provide SONAR customers with the fastest way to create inspiring,
realistic drum tracks.
Session Drummer 2 includes real, multi-sampled drum kits
paired with professionally recorded drum patterns. Users can build
an accompaniment by simply loading a drum kit and dragging and
dropping patterns into their project. Users can also play patterns
or individual drums from any MIDI controller to perform their own
drum tracks. Session Drummer 2 also provides the flexibility of
custom drum kits, which can be built by loading individual
components on pads (including the user’s own WAV, AIFF, or
OGG format samples) and then adjusting volume, pan, width, and
tuning on each drum.
Session Drummer 2’s amazing sound quality is made
possible by the included high-quality samples and MIDI patterns
from Smart Loops, an industry leader in rhythm content. These
samples are rendered using the unrivaled, non-aliasing Expression
Engine, found exclusively in the Cakewalk Instruments Line. Session
Drummer 2 expansion packs are in development; more information to
be announced in the near future.
Best Sound
SONAR set new standards for superior sound quality with the
industry’s first 64-bit double precision floating point mix
engine. This true 64-bit end-to-end signal path provides extended
dynamic range with spacious headroom and footroom: preserving the
subtle details of a performance heard in the complex character of a
fine acoustic instrument or the reverb decay of a vast cathedral.
VC-64 Vintage Channel — offers the classic,
sought-after sound of big-desk analog channel strips and dynamics
processors, all within a superior in the box mixing environment.
VC-64 achieves this exceptional sound quality by taking full
advantage of SONAR’s internal 64-bit double precision
processing combined with Advanced Component Level Modeling (ACLM)
developed by Kjaerhus Audio. In addition, Vintage Channel takes the
guesswork out of dialing in the perfect sound by providing a
comprehensive collection of professionally designed
‘go-to’ presets.
VC-64’s powerful sound-shaping features include: double
precision internal processing; multi-stage processing with up to
ten selectable interconnection/routings; serial and parallel
compression and EQ stages; two VCA/Opto mode compressors; two
4-band double precision, parametric EQ’s with five
high-quality filter types to ensure accurate alteration of any part
of the audio spectrum; Noise Gate with soft knee; wideband
de-esser; user-customizable signal flow including internal side
chaining; zero latency for live use while recording; and full
automation capability.
