Other standout features include the expandable ProChannel (create your own custom mixer architecture, from vintage to modern), the full version of Nomad Factory's Blue Tubes bundle to capture the vintage sound of classic studios, precision phase-linear EQ and multiband dynamics plug-ins for mastering, saturation from Softube, 19 instruments, and 51 total plug-in effects.

SONAR X3 Producer ($499) meets the demands of professionals who require a DAW with the versatility to handle any kind of project. Features include everything in the other SONAR versions as well as XLN Audio's Addictive Drums for superior drums and percussion, AAS Lounge Lizard Session's iconic electric piano sounds and Strum Acoustic Session for realistic guitar performances, the warmth and punch of the new ProChannel Tape Emulator, "widescreen" fly-out spectrum analysis on every ProChannel QuadCurve EQ, Tone2 BiFilter filter/distortion processor, 57 total plug-in effects, and full versions of both the Rapture and Dimension Pro software synths for a total of 23 instruments.

Versions and Availability

All three SONAR X3 versions are available through music and sound retailers around the world, as well as the Cakewalk Store. Registered Cakewalk customers can download their SONAR X3 upgrades directly from the Cakewalk Store or select music retailers.

Note: SONAR X3 has replaced SONAR X2 Essential because X3 goes far beyond what's "essential."
