Boston, MA, (October 19, 2015) — Cakewalk, developers of powerful and thoughtfully designed software for modern musicians, today announced the availability of SONAR Steam Edition on the Steam
platform—a leading destination for the delivery and management of PC, Mac, and Linux games and digital entertainment. Created by Valve, makers of best-selling game franchises like Portal and Counter-Strike, Steam has more than 125 million active users around the world and offers more than 5,000 titles.
SONAR Steam Edition is a value-packed entry-level product aimed at gamers who want to create music for a variety of video game media. This program has specific tools tailored for game-music, including support for video game creation software like RPG Maker, allowing the creator to export and add custom music, FX and soundtracks. In addition, SONAR Steam Edition now comes with new features like Z3TA+ Classic synth, a built-in sound FX library, and a wide array of classic and modern video game sounds for improved sound design capabilities.
SONAR Steam Edition is based on the critically-acclaimed SONAR digital audio workstation and also includes many of the high-powered features users would expect like unlimited effects, busses, audio, instrument and MIDI tracks, to name just a few.
“The video game community has greatly evolved in just the last few years, and we’re really excited about creating products like SONAR Steam Edition for those who enjoy going beyond game-play into the world of interactive game creation,” states Cakewalk President, Michael Hoover. “SONAR Steam Edition is a great choice for Steam community users who are aspiring video game soundtrack designers, or for those looking to have fun creating music for video game environments.”
SONAR Steam Edition users will also have the ability to expand their library with Third-Party Expansion Packs. Currently, SoundtRec Boston
has developed three expansion sound packs also available on the Steam store with themes of Action, Drama and Sci-Fi. In addition, A Sound Effect
has made more than 10 Sound FX titles available for purchase ranging from guns and rifles to cyborgs and cinematic themes. Availability and Pricing
