Table 175. ProChannel keyboard shortcuts ProChannel is only included with SONAR X2 Producer. If a project was created in Producer and loaded into Studio or Essential, the project might sound different because ProChannel is not available. However, if you resave the project in Studio or Essential, all ProChannel settings will be persisted and available if you later load the project into Producer again.If you load a pre-SONAR X2 project that uses the per-channel Sonitus:fx EQ, the ProChannel QuadCurve Equalizer module will be disabled.If you want to keep and edit the Sonitus:fx EQ, double-click the small Equalizer graph in the collapsed ProChannel.To replace the Sonitus:fx EQ with the ProChannel QuadCurve Equalizer, do one of the following:
Enable the Equalizer module. SONAR prompts if you want to switch from the Sonitus:fx EQ to the ProChannel QuadCurve Equalizer.Loading X2 projects in SONAR X1c or earlier
SONAR X1c and earlier only support a single compressor module per channel. If you are using multiple compressor modules on a channel in a SONAR X2 project, SONAR X1c (or earlier) will only load one of the compressors.
SONAR X1c and earlier always shows the Compressor, Equalizer and Tube Saturation modules on all channels. If you load a SONAR X2 project that doesn’t use all the default modules, SONAR X1c will automatically recreate the missing modules.
If you load a SONAR X2 project that has ProChannel Global Bypass enabled, you will not be able to unbypass that ProChannel instance in SONAR X1c.
