Record: Capture performances with pristine quality and unlimited tracks.

  • SONAR X2 Producer includes unlimited audio and MIDI tracks with up to 384kHz audio fidelity powered by the SONAR 64-bit double precision mix engine.
  • Take lanes, track folders, confidence recording, and bus waveform preview provide the organization and assurance that every nuance of a performance is captured and where it should be.
  • Automatic Plugin Delay Compensation (PDC), 64-bit OS support, WDM & VST driver modes coupled with the extreme low latency audio engine allow for better than hardware performance of soft synths and input monitoring on effects.

Edit: Fix mistakes, arrange parts, and manipulate pitch/time and any other aspects of recordings.

  • Newly enhanced Smart Tool changes function automatically based on context and works in every one of SONAR's edit views.
  • Smart Grid intelligently sets the snap resolution and the visual grid line display dynamically, based on zoom level, to a useful setting for the task at hand.
  • SONAR X2's Piano Roll View has been enhanced with a new look and new functionality.

Mix: Sculpt killer tones and create big, dynamic mixes.

  • ProChannel includes 6 modules for every day mixing tasks including an updated EQ, compressors, tube saturations, and more.

Different consoles have different characteristics and there are three modes available, S-Type, N-Type and A-Type. Add the Console Emulator to any channel or bus and dial in the distinctive sound of these analog hardware consoles - with all the modern convenience and flexibility of software.
  • R-MIX SONAR is now available exclusively in SONAR X2 Producer. Fully automatable and available on any track or bus, R-MIX employs Roland's V-Remastering technology letting you remove noise, isolate particular elements, or create unique and evocative filtering effects that demand attention.
  • BREVERB SONAR is a high quality reverberation plug-in modeled on the most acclaimed hardware classics, and is the solution to any recording, mixing and live situation. BREVERB SONAR can be patched as a VST plugin or patched directly into the ProChannel.
