Free Demo Versions Available of Cakewalk® SONAR 2015

—Receive unprecedented access to the exceptional features of all new SONAR Versions—

Boston, MA, (July 16, 2015) - Cakewalk, dedicated to powerful and thoughtfully designed software for modern musicians, is offering free downloadable demos of the entire new SONAR product lineup (Artist, Professional, and Platinum versions). 

These demo versions do not expire, and are updatable as new releases become available. Musicians can freely explore SONAR’s benefits prior to making a purchase, allowing them to select the SONAR version that best fits their needs. Although save and export are unavailable, files from previous SONAR versions can be opened.

All three new SONAR versions offer the same high-tech core features—touch control, unlimited tracks/FX/sends/buses, VST3/VST2/DirectX compatibility, video track, support for high-resolution audio via DSD compatibility and sample rates to 384 kHz, enhanced MIDI editing, Mix Recall for switching quickly among different mixes, advanced publishing options, innovative “one-stop solution” effects chains, amp simulations, advanced comping, and much more—while the award-winning Skylight User Interface contributes inspiring and efficient workflow. 

The three versions target specific recording needs. SONAR Artist ($99) provides the most feature-packed recording software in its price range. SONAR Professional ($199) folds in the analog-style, expandable ProChannel Console Strip as well as Melodyne pitch correction and a rich set of plug-ins to provide performance that exceeds many of the “flagship” programs from other companies. SONAR Platinum ($499) features a spectacular array of features, plug-in effects, and instruments to offer extreme flexibility to pros who need to handle any kind of recording or mixing production. Advanced tools include Console and Tape emulation, VocalSync for tightening vocals or matching dialog to picture, advanced drum replacement, convolution reverb, and other “power tools” that complement the superior workflow.
