Cakewalk is releasing a 2.1 update for its award winning SONAR digital multitrack recording system later this month. SONAR includes the most advanced Windows technology available for recording, editing, and mixing digital audio and MIDI projects entirely on the PC. Registered SONAR 2.0 customers will be able to download the SONAR 2.1 update for free at www.cakewalk.com.

First released in March of this year, SONAR 2.0 is a digital audio and MIDI production package designed and optimized exclusively for the Windows platform. SONAR offers unlimited digital audio and MIDI tracks; a centralized interface design for improved creative workflow; advanced audio looping and editing tools; ReWire 2.0 support; global support for control surface hardware; DXi software synthesizer plug-ins; fully-automatable DirectX 8 audio plug-ins; real-time MIDI FX plug-ins; and extensive audio loops and SoundFont libraries.

SONAR 2.1 Highlights

  • OMFI and Broadcast Wave (BWF) support, providing sample-accurate import and export of OMF and Broadcast WAV audio files and sequences directly into SONAR projects without launching a separate application. Support for OMFI and Broadcast Wave files provides cross-platform compatibility with OMF host applications such as Pro Tools, Avid and Logic systems.
  • Windows Media 9 Series audio export support, providing the latest audio streaming technology available for saving and distributing music over the internet.
  • Mackie Control surface hardware support, allowing musicians and producers to use the new Mackie surface hardware to control SONAR's recording, editing and mixing operations.

Pricing and Availability

The SONAR 2.1 Update is scheduled to be available mid October, 2002. Registered SONAR 2.0 users will be able to download the SONAR 2.1 update for free at www.cakewalk.com. SONAR has a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $479 U.S.; SONAR XL is $599 MSRP.
