ProChannel (Producer and Studio only)

Compressor (Producer only). The Compressor modules let you limit the dynamic range and balance the overall level. Compression makes the loud parts of the signal quieter, resulting in a more even level. SONAR includes two different compressor modules:
list-image
PC76 U-Type Channel Compressor. This is the default mode when using ProChannel on a track. This mode is meticulously modelled after one of the most renowned and famous solid-state (F.E.T.) compressors that is used in professional studios and recordings. Known to bring out the brightness and presence of a sound. Commonly used on vocal tracks, but also recommended for stereo drum buses and guitar tracks. For details, see PC76 U-Type Channel Compressor module (Producer only).

PC4K S-Type Bus Compressor.  This is the default mode when using ProChannel on a bus. This mode is based on the legendary center console stereo bus compressor in one of the world's most successful analog studio production mixing consoles. Known to add punch and drive to a mix. Also recommended for instruments like piano and drums. This mode supports sidechaining. For details, see PC4K S-Type Bus Compressor module (Producer only).

QuadCurve Equalizer. The QuadCurve Equalizer module allows you to fine tune the frequency spectrum of your music or sound. You have control over six individual bands, which allows you to attenuate or boost specific frequency ranges and shape the overall characteristics of the audio signal. Equalization may also be applied creatively, to add presence or enhance certain frequencies, to remove noise, hum or low-end rumble, for special effects or numerous other purposes. The QuadCurve Equalizer fly-out panel also includes a real-time FFT spectrum analyzer. For more information, see QuadCurve Equalizer module.

Tube Saturation (Producer only). Digital audio recordings can sometimes sound sterile and lifeless. The Tube Saturation module employs advanced analog vacuum-tube circuit modeling, which allows you to apply ultra-high-quality analog warmth and saturation to individual tracks and full mixes. Under the hood are dynamic, virtual vacuum-tubes that mimic the “animated” nature of their real, analog counterpart as they respond to different audio input. The result is the coveted warm, lively and realistic analog sound of classic vacuum-tube processors and amplifiers. For details, see Tube Saturation module (Producer only).

Softube Saturation Knob. The Softube Saturation Knob module borrows from Softube’s famous German FET distortion and compression circuitry modeling, and provides smooth, one-knob, frequency saturation operation for adding just the right amount of tube warmth to any track.

Console Emulator (Producer only). The Console Emulator module emulates the sound of three classic recording consoles in SONAR's mixer. For details, see Console Emulator module (Producer only).
list-image
FX Chain. The FX Chain module lets you save and load audio effect plug-in chain presets called FX Chain. The FX Chain module can be used as an effects bin that can be inserted between other ProChannel modules. For details, see FX Chain module.
list-image
BREVERB SONAR ProChannel. The BREVERB SONAR ProChannel module by Overloud provides world-class studio reverb. Dozens of professional presets are included. SONAR includes both VST and ProChannel versions of BREVERB SONAR. For details, click the Help button in the BREVERB SONAR VST version.
