Upgrading to SONAR 7 from an Earlier Version or another Cakewalk Product

Last updated on 3/31/2016

The information in this article applies to:

  • SONAR 7 Producer Edition
  • SONAR 7 Studio Edition

Removing previously installed Cakewalk products after installing SONAR 7 may remove some plug-ins.  Either uninstall previous versions first or run a "Custom" installation of the FX and synths from the SONAR 7 disk to regain functionality. 

Never remove Cakewalk software manually by deleting the folders and files. Instead, use the Cakewalk "Uninstaller" program, which is supplied specifically for this purpose.

SONAR SETUP does not overwrite your existing MASTER.INS file. That file contains the instrument definitions that SONAR loads every time it starts. SETUP installs new .INS files for each supported manufacturer. These files contain the latest complete set of available instrument definitions.

To learn how to import any of these .INS files, see the online Help topic titled "Importing Instrument Definitions”.
