  • Added shell support for Waves VST plug-ins (DX versions already supported).

  • Control Surface Enhancements (individual control surface plug-ins must be updated)
    • Get/set Record Punch State
    • Send stereo/surround metering to a control surface
    • Get Marker Names
    • Add a Marker
  • Display mouse tracking info while editing MIDI in the Track View or Piano Roll View
    • Displays current MIDI note or CC value in notes area
    • Displays current time (musical or absolute) in the time ruler
  • The Erase Tool has returned to the Piano Roll View and Inline Piano Roll View Toolbars.
    • Auto Erase mode is now available as an option for the Draw Tool.


  • When two or more parameters were automated on the same VST on the same track, automation did not render.
  • Deleting a bus could sometimes cause one of its source buses to form a feedback loop and crash SONAR.
  • Incorrect rounding mode used when converting 64-bit double precision to integer PCM formats.
  • Dither was being applied inappropriately to float files
  • The POW-r 2 and POW-r 3 noise shaping curves were slightly incorrect.
  • Rectangular dither had insufficient levels
  • Normalize sometimes caused overs on 32- and 64-bit audio.
  • Enabling "Remove DC Offset During Record" affected both inputs of a stereo pair when only one of the inputs was receiving a signal.
  • Scrolling to offscreen tracks with a control surface did not always bring those tracks into the view.
  • Mackie C4 would sometimes freeze after connecting to SONAR.
  • Some control surfaces would switch SONAR into overwrite mode when changing punch times.
  • UAD-1 plug-ins caused CPU spikes, especially while looping.
  • Groove Agent 2 sometimes dropped out during playback.
  • V-Vocal clips sometimes did not play if the Now Time was set during playback
  • V-Vocal sometimes produced an unwanted "flanging" or "phasing" sound
  • The Audio Metronome caused video to play out of sync when recording.
  • The Audio Metronome would start with a down-beat on a partial measure count-in.
  • When used with a count-in, the Audio Metronome sometimes caused the recording to start late.
  • Delete key did not delete selected MIDI notes in the Inline Piano Roll View.
  • Could not audition MIDI note velocities in the controller pane.
  • Piano Roll View notes appeared to change their start positions during a lasso.
  • Piano Roll View tools were not bindable by user-defined hotkeys.
  • Piano Roll View Zoom Tool hotkey was broken.
  • A Sysx event in a TTS-1 MIDI source track sometimes caused the synth to dropout during playback.
  • RPN/NRPN LSB was reset when MSB is received during recording.
  • When transposing a MIDI track, linked clips were transposed twice.
  • Opening a 24-bit project while playing caused audio distortion.
  • Changing Import Bit Depth to 24 created static at first playback.
  • SONAR would occasionally crash when saving a MIDI Type 1 file.
  • Projects with per-clip effects bins sometimes incorrectly reported a "Disk may be full" error on bounce or export.
  • On rare occasions, if a system crashed after a file save, the file could become corrupt.
  • Snap to clip boundaries occasionally did not work.
  • Ctrl+F did not open/close track folders.
  • In the Track View Clips Pane, pressing the ESC key while the mouse button was held down did not escape out of the operation.
  • SONAR incorrectly populated the ReWire menu when multiple versions of ACID were installed on the same computer
  • SONAR x64 has been rebuilt with the latest development and build tools.
  • SONAR x64: Process | Audio | Reverse resulted in flatlined audio.
