Are you ready to make music? Cakewalk SONAR X1 Producer is. This amazing DAW is like nothing you've seen before. Cakewalk SONAR X1 Producer isn't just an upgrade from version 8.x, it's a complete redesign of the SONAR environment that will speed up your workflow and keep you locked in your creative zone. With SONAR X1 Producer, you have everything you need to go from a clean slate to broadcast-ready music and cinematic soundscapes. The overarching concept behind the SONAR X1 environment is the new Skylight user interface environment.
Skylight combines the flexibility responsible for making SONAR one of the most popular DAWs with a MultiDock toolbar that keeps all of SONAR X1's modules right at your fingertips. Instantly call up the track view for recording or the MIDI editor for sequencing, then switch to the Matrix and lay down a pattern - all without surfing through complicated menus. There's no complicated setup to deal with, clunky user interface to master, or anything else to get between you and your music. Screensets let you instantly jump from one purpose-ready layout to another. Track in one layout, switch Screensets to lay down a MIDI-based synth part, and then switch Screensets again to go back for overdubs. It's that easy.
SONAR X1's new smart tools also ensure that your creative flow is never broken, allowing you to edit both audio and MIDI with a single tool. The Inspector module gives you complete drag-and-drop simplicity, allowing you to easily add drum patterns, instrument riffs, virtual instruments, FX chains, multitrack templates, and more to your session - all from a single consolidated browser window.
No matter what kind of studio you work in, SONAR X1 Producer will give your tracks that big-studio sound. ProChannel is the key to SONAR X1 Producer's genuine analog sound. It adds in-line analog-style signal processing to each of your mixer channels. There are three parts to the ProChannel: the EQ, the compressor, and the tube saturation engine. Each of these sections provide multiple models of real vintage gear and are completely tweakable. SONAR X1 Producer edition also gives you an exclusive suite of additional plug-ins, covering production, channel strips, and mastering processors. On top of that, you get a whole lineup of essential production tools.
AudioSnap 2.0 lets you quickly and easily correct the timing of your audio tracks, and Roland's V-Vocal pitch correction engine gives you everything from subtle pitch correction to extreme hard-tuning effects. A collection of 13 amazing T and S Series effects give you advanced mixing options above and beyond SONAR X1's core suite of 31 standard professional-level plug-ins. You also get 10 go-to virtual instruments, as well as four fantastic synths from RGC. When it comes to laying down tracks, SONAR X1's non-linear Matrix view lets you seamlessly incorporate MIDI and audio loops into your projects, and Step Sequencer 2.0 makes laying down beats and synth lines a blast. Add to that a whole list of bundled plug-ins, and it's easy to see why Cakewalk SONAR X1 Producer is the future of PC-based music production!Cakewalk SONAR X1 Producer DAW Features at a Glance:
