Track, Bus and Hardware Output panes. The Console view has three separate panes: the left most pane contains track channel strips, the middle pane contains bus channel strips, and the right pane contains hardware output channel strips. You can drag the pane splitter bars to resize the panes.
Channel strips. Each track, bus and main in the project is represented by its own vertical channel strip. Use the channel strip controls to mix and process tracks, buses and hardware outputs. For details, see Channel strips.
Modules. Controls in channel strips are grouped into modules that can be shown or hidden. For details, see Modules.
Bus. Use to create submixes, headphone mixes, and effects sends. SONAR supports both stereo buses and surround buses. For details, see Bus controls.
Hardware Output. Use to control the physical audio outputs of your audio interface. A main channel strip contains both a left and right output and two volume controls. For details, see Hardware Output controls.
