"Everett", the fifth monthly update since Cakewalk introduced the Membership Program in January 2015, includes the new Drum Replacer for Sonar Platinum and marks a major milestone in the Membership Program. Drum Replacer is billed as "the most tightly integrated drum replacement technology ever". Create huge studio drum sounds, replace individual hits or entire kits from existing drum tracks with samples, extract drum hits from loops, and even trigger drums from percussive instruments—it's all possible with this new, ARA-integrated module for enhancing drum productions. Unlike other drum replacement products that act as plug-ins inside of a DAW, Cakewalk says that Drum Replacer essentially "becomes part of Sonar"—which results in "zero-latency and superior performance".
"Everett" also includes exclusive content like the new Rapture Kick Start Expansion Pack, which makes finding the right kick drum sample for electronic, EDM, hip hop, and industrial mixes easier. In addition, the new Sizzle Bus FX Chain, compatible with all versions of Sonar, emulates the famous "exciter" effect used on so many hit records over the years. And as always, they continue to refine the program with nearly 40 fixes and enhancements, as well as improved ARA support.
