The SONAR experience is constantly improving -- so now all SONAR versions include 12 months of SONAR Membership. Receive awesome features, maintenance updates, custom content, 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.
Cakewalk Command Center
Cakewalk's 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.
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.
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.
The 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.
The award-winning Skylight interface continues to evolve, and with stacked FX, you can view as many effects as your screen resolution can handle.
