Sonar has found a place at the heart of studios big and small over the past 25 years, expanding and improving with each revision. The Platinum edition has the most complete feature set so far with high end plugins, vocal processing, DSD mastering and an interface designed from the ground up to inspire better mixes and make edits easy.
Your choice of DAW is personal, the workflow should be an extension of your ideas and there should always be the tools on hand to fix any issue you face in the studio. Cakewalk have loaded you up with Amp Sims, Drums and plugins right out the box but there's plenty more to look forward to with a free 12 month membership to Sonar and the Command Center lets you manage your studio life from one place.

essential for matching dialog to picture. Use VocalSync to perfect your
parts’ timing without splitting and moving clips.
The New Control Bar
Stack, scroll, minimize, and maximize any and all Control Bar modules
for one-click access to your favorite tools. When collapsed, hovering
the mouse over a module displays its parameters for an even more
efficient Skylight environment.
Never second-guess yourself on a mix again. Mix Recall lets you save
and switch to various mix scenes for easy, one-click comparisons. Swap
out effects, fader positions, or every parameter so that you can
restore an original mix, create remixes, or just entertain a client’s
suggestion. Mix tracks specifically for radio, podcast, video, or mp3,
and then bounce every version in a single export.
The only variable separating you from your creativity is time, and the
Pattern Tool—which sits in the Smart Tool palette for instant access—is
all about saving time. Forget cut and paste: Simply select and paint
MIDI loops and patterns across the Piano Roll View and Track View.
REmatrix Solo is a zero-latency convolution reverb ProChannel module
from Overloud/MoReVox. REmatrix Solo is a streamlined, single-layer
version of the acclaimed REmatrix. It features 100 Impulse Response
(IR) presets, including plates, halls, rooms, early reflections, and
specialty spaces - plus the ability to import your own IRs.
The award-winning Skylight interface continues to evolve, and with
stacked FX, you can view as many effects as your screen resolution can
handle—in both Track and Console views.
SONAR’s console view expands the sends section to—well, as many sends
as you want to see. Now you can see every aspect of your signal path
and create a more productive environment when working on complex mixes.
AudioSnap. New detection algorithms re-boot AudioSnap into a
toolkit. Stretch a song from one tempo to another, sync your recordings
to audio loops, tighten your drums and convert them to MIDI…and the new
level of performance comes wrapped in a new look and new layout.
Direct Stream Digital (DSD)
SONAR breaks the barrier for affordable DSD import, export, and
conversion. Now you can produce better-than-CD quality material with a
few clicks, archive your masters to an audibly superior format, and
join the world of high-resolution audio.
16 Virtual Custom Amps
From country to metal, bass to funk, classic rock to futuristic,
SONAR’s 16 new drag-and-drop amps aren’t about emulating existing
amps—but creating idealized amps that can exist only in the virtual
world. Get ready to change how you look at amp simulations.
