Fast-forward your music production.

SONAR 6 Producer Edition is the definitive choice for music creation and audio production, designed to take you from inspiration to masterpiece faster than ever before. At every step of your production”from composing with virtual instruments to recording and mixing”SONAR gives you professional tools that adapt to your unique style of music creation, even providing a customizable user interface that lets you put favorite features right where you want them. SONAR also delivers an industry-leading 64-bit double precision mix engine.

SONAR has already been widely accepted by academic institutions and is being taught today in programs at Northeastern University, Indiana State University, Berklee College of Music, the University of Delaware, and many other prestigious academic institutions. With music notation to complete digital audio and MIDI workstations for the Windows platform, Cakewalk's academic products provide both the teacher and the student with the tools needed to foster a successful learning.

Some of the biggest new features for SONAR 6 include the innovative Active Controller Technology (ACT) which dynamically remaps effect, mix, and instrument parameters to hardware controllers. ACT automatically assigns your knobs and sliders to popular features when you load a plug-in or synth; and you can easily customize the mapping. When you open a different plug-in, ACT automatically remaps controller mappings to whatever has the focus. ACT works with any MIDI controller, any control surface, any effect, any virtual instrument, and SONAR mix parameters. AudioSnap Multitrack Audio Quantize delivers non-destructive audio quantize, locks multiple tracks into the same groove, applies seamless tempo changes to audio, can convert audio beats to MIDI, slip-stretch clips to a new time or length, and uses high-quality time-stretching algorithms. VC-64 Vintage Channel delivers warm sounding dual EQ and compressor stages with analog component modeling and presets designed by professional musicians and producers.
