Play - Rock out with top-notch virtual instruments and killer guitar tones

One of our favorite things about SONAR at Sweetwater is the sheer amount of content you get. Cakewalk packed SONAR X3 with 12 wonderful virtual instruments, including all four of the synths in Cakewalk's esteemed Studio Instruments collection plus Session Drummer 3. And if you play guitar or bass, then you'll really get a kick out of the rockin' TH2 SONAR amp simulator.

Record - Flexible tools simplify your recording workflow without limiting your potential

With unlimited audio and MIDI tracks at your disposal, Cakewalk SONAR X3 provides you with more than enough flexibility to create music like a pro. The whole SONAR X3 audio engine is built around a phenomenal sounding 64-bit/384kHz audio engine, which keeps your sound as pristine as possible for mixing and editing. SONAR X3 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.

Edit - Edit effortlessly with the Skylight interface

One of the things that really sets Cakewalk SONAR X3 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 X3 Smart Tool lets you move from module to module and always have the functions you need just a mouse click away.

Mix - Refine your tracks with a host of amazing mixing tools and virtual processors

Cakewalk certainly doesn't skimp when it comes to virtual processors. From the moment you install SONAR X3, you'll have dozens of amazing plug-in effects and processors you can use to bolster your sound and smooth out your mix. Despite being a streamlined recording program, SONAR X3 provides you with excellent built-in mixing tools. For instance, the Track Lane feature lets you record take after take and then compile the takes into one seamless track - a feature usually reserved for high-end DAWs. And with the complete Sonitus:fx Suite at your disposal, you'll find mixing easy with SONAR X3.

Deliver - Distributing your latest masterpiece is just a few mouse clicks away

With the tracking, editing, and mixing 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, toss your latest tune up to SoundCloud, or export a video to YouTube, Cakewalk SONAR X3 lets you do it all - without ever leaving the program. That's not all. You can even print notation right from SONAR X3 or export it in MusicXML format. So don't be shy - show off your music with the amazing tools in SONAR X3.
