Note: The core SONAR installer does not include all available software instruments. Please download and install the optional instruments via Cakewalk Command Center (see Cakewalk Command Center).SONAR’s Synth Rack makes inserting a soft synth or ReWire instrument a one-step process, and makes viewing and configuring these instruments simple. In the Synth Rack you can insert and delete synths, create control knobs to control and/or automate parameters, scroll through patches and presets, mute, solo, freeze, and choose what track to display automation data on. You can easily control all of your soft synths from one view.SONAR also supports multi-port synths, which allow you to use different synth tracks and effects for each patch or group of patches in a multi-timbral, multi-port synth.SONAR seamlessly integrates VST synths. The VST Configuration Wizard runs automatically on startup, registering all your VST plug-ins. See VST configuration for more information.
