SONAR includes the world's finest drum kits and percussion instruments. SONAR Professional includes the Addictive Drums 2 Solo bundle, which lets you pick any ADpak, any MIDIpak, and any Kitpiece Pak of your choice. You'll have tons of inspiring new sounds and rhythms for your next masterpiece.
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.
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.
