Issues Resolved

Main Application:

  • Various performance/stability issues.
  • Duplicate notes in drum map manager would crash SONAR.
  • Inserting an effect into a track with the per-track EQ set to post-FX Bin would cause a crash.
  • AudioSnap clip rendering could not be cancelled by the user.
  • Audio Export file type defaulted to AIFF after exporting an MP3.
  • SendLocalOn TTSEQ.INI variable was not functioning properly.
  • Track Inspector did not always update to the selected track.
  • Synth freeze failed when a post-fader send was assigned to a sidechain input.
  • Opening and closing Clip Properties dialog sometimes changed clip length.
  • Reverting clips to original time stamp sometimes failed after original clip was split.
  • Cropping audio and MIDI clips that are at time 0 sometimes caused the clip's contents to shift in time.
  • Intermittent audio stuttering, aka "motorboating", during playback with certain audio hardware and system configurations is corrected.
  • Freezing a synth sometimes caused bus automation to be ignored.
  • Sysex banks were never rendered to soft synths when exporting or bouncing a project containing sysex banks.
  • Saving Cakewalk Bundle Files with mixed audio bit depths could fail when the total size exceeded 2GB if the individual audio files were under 2GB.
  • In the Staff View, noteheads and the time ruler sometimes displayed incorrectly during playback.
  • SONAR reported installation issues on some systems loaded with an OEM version of Microsoft Vista.

Piano Roll View:

  • Painting new CCs in multi-track Piano Roll View sometimes caused CCs from other tracks in the PRV to be erased.
  • When inserting a note on a hidden track, the track was not made visible.
  • Lasso selecting notes and moving the selection offscreen caused original notes to become unselected.


  • SONAR would sometimes crash when adding bus envelopes.
  • Automation from synths in the Synth Rack could not be edited.
  • Editing automation during playback was not always rendered immediately.

External Inserts:

  • Assigning a series of track inputs when an External Insert was in the project would sometimes cause SONAR to freeze.
  • Did not retain mono routings.
  • Failed to launch help when pressing F1.

Step Sequencer:

  • Current step display indicators sometimes got out of sync when editing patterns during playback.
  • Track transpose (Key+/-) settings were ignored on input.

Plug-ins and Components:

  • When dragging MIDI data from a V-Vocal pitch-to-MIDI operation, the new MIDI clip was not always created at the drop point.
  • Paging through Z3TA+ patches sometimes caused a crash.
  • Improvements made to match mode in PCR-30, PCR-300 and ACT MIDI Control Surface plug-ins.
  • Send pre/post and enable buttons were not exposed to Control Surfaces.
  • SONAR did not refresh preset lists when requested by VST plug-ins.

Third Party Issues:

  • Inserting Korg LegacyCell or Steinberg Hypersonic would crash SONAR.
  • Bounced tracks that contained VST plug-ins requiring delay compensation would sometimes include artifacts from extra buffers.
  • V-Station PowerCore was disabled upon inserting into SONAR.
  • UAD-1 displayed an Err=30 message when changing audio driver buffer size.
