Dimensions Pro is a critically acclaimed software synthesizer that delivers 7GB of samples on a single DVD from real instruments to fuel your creations. You'll love the deep editing and sound generation capabilities of Cakewalk Dimension Pro as well as the flexible synth parameters.

Cakewalk Dimension Pro virtual synth offers an abundance of sounds that range from pristine realistic acoustic instruments, thumping basses, and cutting leads to complex, evolving atmospheres. This wide range can be attributed to advanced sample mapping and a powerful sound-sculpting engine. Analog sound generation lets you mutate and recompose any sound.

The sound library also explores the worlds of techno, trance and electronica, providing a comprehensive collection of synth leads, electronic basses, lush pads, and gripping atmospheres.

Garritan Pocket Orchestra

Cakewalk and Garritan have joined together to offer sound programs based on the Garritan Personal Orchestra. Dimension Pro contains samples of all the major instruments in a symphony orchestra—strings, brass, woodwinds, and percussion.

Electronica collection

Nico Herz of BigTone helped to create Dimension Pro's breathtaking electronica palette. His experience and mastery have yielded an exciting array of synth basses, bold leads, thick stacks, pads, simulations, and amazing effects.

Great as long as you are running at 44.1K


from Roseville, MN

I bought Dim Pro and was very impressed with the sounds. Then I upgraded my system to 24 bit 96K. Now many of the sounds cause wild volume changes that can physically damage your speakers. Many others have experienced this same problem when running at anything besides 44.1K. Check Cakewalk's forum. Cakewalk acknowledged this problem over a year ago and has yet to release a patch for it. I just wanted everyone to know that if they run at something besides 44.1K, this will probably not work for you.
