Cakewalk SONAR X2 Producer DAW Software at a Glance:
Play - All the tones and virtual instruments you need live inside SONAR
Whether you sing, play guitar, or rock the keys, you'll find more than enough amazing sounds in SONAR X2 Producer to keep you busy. Cakewalk packed SONAR X2 Producer with 21 killer virtual instruments, including Cakewalk's highly acclaimed Rapture subtractive synth. If you play guitar or bass, then you'll really get a kick out of the new TH2 Producer amp simulator. Combined with SONAR X2's improved low-latency audio engine, these fun guitar effects are even perfect for recording.
Record - Flexible tools simplify your recording workflow without limiting your potential
With unlimited audio, MIDI, and instrument tracks at your disposal, Cakewalk SONAR X2 Producer sets the bar when it comes to basic recording capability. There's also no limit (other than your interface's I/O) to the number of inputs you can record with at once. But the basics are hardly all SONAR X2 Producer has to offer. For starters, it's built around a phenomenal sounding 64-bit/384kHz audio engine, which keeps your sound as pristine as possible for mixing and editing. It also provides you with a huge collection of useful recording options, including the ability to record multiple takes directly to separate take lanes in the same channel, or to monitor effects while recording. Best of all, all of these powerful functions are easy to find when you need them.
Edit - Perform pro-level editing techniques effortlessly with the Skylight interface
One of the things that really sets Cakewalk SONAR X2 apart from other DAW programs is its amazingly simple yet totally customizable Skylight user interface. There are two things that make this interface particularly outstanding. First, it's completely modular, but it feels solid. What that means is that you can organize the individual modules as you like them (arrangement view, piano roll, mixer, etc.) and then lock them together into a single window.
The second important thing about the Skylight user interface is its extremely clever Smart Tool. Without having to memorize a litany of keyboard shortcuts or constantly fumble around with pop-up toolbars, the SONAR X2 Smart Tool lets you move from module to module and always have the functions you need just a mouse click away. Now add to all of this powerful editing features such as AudioSnap time correction, loop construction tools, a unique step sequencer, and many other streamlined editing tools, and it's little wonder so many people are making the switch to SONAR X2 Producer.
Mix - Refine your tracks with a host of amazing virtual processors
When they say "no limits," Cakewalk means it. You'll experience the kind of flexibility this affords you when it comes time to mix in SONAR X2 Producer. We're talking about unlimited channels, buses, auxiliary sends, and inserts, all of which give you the freedom to mix the way you like to. And when it comes to advanced mixing tools and plug-ins, SONAR X2 Producer has you covered. In addition to the new BREVERB SONAR, R-MIX SONAR, and Modular ProChannel, SONAR X2 Producer redefines the way you'll work with automation. And with an amazing new Console Emulator built in, getting sweet sound in the box has never been easier.
Master - Full suit of onboard mastering tools make polishing your mix easy
Put in the simplest terms possible, you can easily spend as much as SONAR X2 Producer costs on a suite of high-end mastering plug-ins alone, without batting an eyelash or gaining a thing. Designed specifically for mastering, Cakewalk's newly revamped LP-64 EQ linear-phase parametric equalizer and LP-64 multiband compressor are ideally suited for adding that final polish to your mixes. And best of all, SONAR X2 Producer lets you access these amazing tools at any point in your music-production process, without ever breaking your workflow.
Deliver - Distributing your latest masterpiece is just a few mouse clicks away
With all of the tracking, editing, mixing, and mastering behind you, there's only one thing left to do, and that's to share your work with the rest of the world. Whether you need to simply burn a CD or you want to toss your latest tune up to SoundCloud, Cakewalk SONAR X2 Producer lets you do it all - without ever leaving the program. That's not all. SONAR X2 Producer will also let you export video files in YouTube friendly formats. You can even print notation right from SONAR X2 or export it in MusicXML format. So don't be shy - show off your music with the amazing tools in SONAR X2 Producer.

I love this product
by Nick Goldman from Hartford, CTI am in love with the new user interface in SONAR. I came over from Cubase and after dealing with window clutter for year, it's nice to see a pretty clean trackview that is totally dock-able. The inst... read more [+]ruments and FX that ship with SONAR X2 are also pretty incredible. I love ZETA and am really digging the new ProChannel. It feels like I am in a pro studio. I wish it shipped with a manual but their online help seems to do the trick. Also, I had an issue with installation of Rapture, and customer service was great. I have already mixed 4 projects over the past month and I have been pretty impressed with the results. Highly recommend. close [-]

sonar x2 producer
by choo shi-hwei from malaysiaI love Sonar x1 and sonar x2 is a great upgrade. Breverb kick arse, love it. TH2 is very clean and easy to use. Like the sound.

Love the take lanes and automation lanes.It does have some bugs and crashed but I am not sure it is Sonar's fault. I heard sometimes certain hardware or antivirus does interfere with Sonar. If it is crash free I would give X2 5 stars. But the 99 dollar upgrade from X1 is a no brainer. close [-]

Going in the right direction
by William from Clinton MS. USAI have been a Sonar user since Sonar 7 producer.

(for my needs that is) The new software interface is awesome, and the pro channel is terrific. I have used virtual emulators before and this one is great. I think Sonar is starting to find it's way back into my production line up. close [-]
