Much of your time in SONAR is spent recording and listening to your project as it develops. The Control Bar contains the most important tools and other pieces of information you will need to record, edit and play back your project.The Control Bar consists of several modules that each contain various related controls. You can re-arrange and show/hide each individual module, which allows you to only show the functions you need most often. By default, the Control Bar is docked at the top of SONAR’s screen, but can also be undocked or docked at the bottom.Figure 150. The Control Bar.

Note: Depending on the video resolution, your computer monitor may not be wide enough to display all Control Bar modules simultaneously. When you show a new module, other visible modules get pushed to the right. If the right most module can not fit on screen, it will automatically be hidden. Hidden modules have a “Offscreen” suffix in the Control Bar context menu.Figure 152. Drag a module’s gripper to move the module.A. Gripper
