  • Core feature set based on SONAR 6.2.
  • Quick Start guide, Track Presets, Project Templates, and Video Tutorials make getting started easy.
  • Sleek new interface enhances ease of use and allows customization of views, colors, and toolbars.
  • New mixing console with per-track Sonitus:fx parametric EQ.
  • 10 new professional audio effects.

  • Rip from and burn to CD directly from SONAR Home Studio.
  • Automate tracks, effects, and instruments easily with enhanced automation tools.
