DAW 2.0 Has Arrived
SONAR has been one of the most popular DAW’s on the market for nearly a decade now, but things have changed over the past ten years. Cakewalk decided that it was time to take their extensive experience in creating music software, combine it with cutting-edge music creation tools, and wrap it in a totally modern design. Watch the video below to learn more.
Skylight—Welcome To Your Workspace
Constantly shuffling and resizing lots of floating windows is so last decade. Precisely suited for today’s music production, SONAR X1's unparalleled user interface design speeds up workflow and provides a clean and modern creation environment.
Browser—all your content unified
The completely redesigned Browser organises all of your content into one, easily managed place. Drag and drop just about anything you can think of from the Browser directly to your workspace.
Inspector—Find what you’ve been looking for
Get all your clip, track, and channel data - centralised and at your fingertips. The new Inspector shows a wealth of data in a small footprint and allows for ergonomic track mixing. With Skylight, it’s also fully collapsible, expandable, dockable and floatable.
Smart Tools—Work smarter not harder
SONAR’s tools have been completely revamped for X1. Most functions are now performed with a single implement that switches automatically based on context. This dramatically speeds up editing and arranging by eliminating the need to constantly switch tools.
Control Bar— Total control freak
Access crucial functions quickly and clearly with the new modular Control Bar. Modules logically group related functions and can be arranged to suit your desire. It’s fully collapsible, expandable, dockable and floatable.
MultiDock— A place for everything
The MultiDock is an integral part of the Skylight interface that allows you to dock and easily access any of SONAR’s views all in one place. The Console View, Step Sequencer, Piano Roll - even instruments and effects can all be contained within one consolidated area. For ultimate flexibility, the MultiDock itself can be quickly collapsed or expanded and can even be placed on an entirely separate monitor.
Screensets—Just the way you remembered it
Per-project Screensets remember every window position, size and state and are accessed directly from the Control Bar or via your QWERTY keyboard. Default Screensets are ready-to-go for just about any production scenario imaginable or create your own Screensets for tracking, mixing, jamming or experimenting. Recall everything - exactly the way you left it.
