Boston, MA, (March 26, 2015) – Cakewalk, dedicated to powerful and thoughtfully designed software for modern musicians — announces the new March 2015 “Cambridge” release for SONAR Artist, Professional, and Platinum.
The second major release in the SONAR Membership program includes added functionality, such as an onscreen virtual MIDI controller for multi-touch or QWERTY triggering (perfect for mobile musicians), Mix Recall that now remembers all output and Bus routing as well as mix parameters, increased import/export support (Ogg Vorbis, legacy formats, the RF64 standard spec'ed by the EBU, improved MP3 export and more), new effects (ProChannel edition of Boz Digital Labs’ Panipulator, Anderton Collection "Phasor Constructor"), and an exclusive Les Paul Gold Top expansion pack for Dimension Pro with 30 new programs. Additionally, there are 50 enhancements and fixes requested by the ever-growing SONAR Membership community.
Bill Jackson, SONAR Product Manager, states, “We love being able to bring even more new features and enhancements to the SONAR community every month. With the previous software distribution model, we would have needed to wait until the next version to release these kinds of major features--but the membership model not only slashes the response time to user requests, it lets us deliver features as soon as they're ready and tested.”
In addition, the SONAR Membership Release eZine provides tutorials, tips, and descriptions of all the new features. Learn more about the new SONAR “Cambridge” release, and see a preview of what’s planned for the near future.
