Based on the award-winning SONAR X3, the LE series continues to impress with pro features like VST3 Support, ARA Integration, and Custom Track Colors - making this virtually the best valued OEM production suite available.
We have enhanced SONAR X3 LE with features that let customers have an even better first time experience using the software and bundled hardware together.
A smarter way to record.
SONAR X3 now introduces our breakthrough Comping - the smartest and quickest method for working with
multiple takes. Record the same part as many times as you like using the new Comping record mode, and
when you’re finished, our speed comping accelerates your workflow so that you can isolate, edit, and
promote your strongest performances into one unified flawless track. Comping at its core improves the
overdubbing process and streamlines the post-recording and editing experience.

The latest VST technology for the greatest DAW.
VST3 support is now fully integrated across all versions of SONAR X3. That means superior plugin management,
low CPU loads, and improved visual workspace. It’s perfectly integrated into SONAR X3’s browser and
shows you VST3 and VST2 plugins side by side.
SONAR X3 automatically detects new VST plugins so you never have to rescan, and if you have a project
using the VST 2 version of a plugin that also supports VST3, SONAR will update it and keep all of your
Integrated saving and sharing on the cloud.

Enter the Matrix
Welcome to a non-linear world.
Why edit and arrange your loops when you can play them instead?
The Matrix View lets you organize audio and MIDI loops, phrases, and one shots into
cells and columns for real-time triggering from one (or more) MIDI controllers. Use
it for easy arranging of song sections or for complex sets of multiple grooves,
one-shots, drops, and breakdowns - all playable in real-time. And the entire performance
can be captured onto discrete tracks in SONAR's Track View where it can be freely
edited and mixed until it's exactly what you want. The new per-cell trigger resolution
and enhanced routing with support for external MIDI hardware make it a formidable
creative force. What are you waiting for? Free your mind.
