Boston, MA, (November 30, 2016) – Cakewalk, dedicated to powerful and thoughtfully designed software for modern musicians, announces a very special 2016.11 monthly update for SONAR Artist, Professional, and Platinum versions. For the first time, DAW users can obtain super-low latency with internal sound chipsets in Windows laptops and tablets. Offering speed comparable to Thunderbolt interfaces, Windows 10 with SONAR becomes the fastest, most efficient mobile solution yet. An additional Shared Mode allows running SONAR concurrently with other programs that access Windows audio. This is great for playing along with audio or learning parts to songs.
The 2016.11 update also includes the unique “Lenses” feature, which provides user interface customization to focus on specific tasks and accelerate workflow. For example, those working with an audio-only project can hide all MIDI windows and menus to streamline the user experience.
Other updates include extensive enhancements to the groove-oriented Matrix view, a real-time “onboarding” guide so first-time users can get up and running in minutes, a Notes Browser for documenting projects, improved virtual instrument handling and docking, more Control Bar customization options, free Melodyne Essential 4.1 update, compatibility with Melodyne Studio 4.1 multitrack support, and several important fixes and enhancements.
With the 2016.11 update, SONAR continues its evolution as the most advanced music production system for Windows. For more information on this update’s new features and enhancements, please see the free SONAR Membership Release monthly eZine, and visit here to learn more about SONAR’S Rolling Updates and what’s planned for the near future.
The SONAR 2016.11 update, a free download from the Cakewalk Command Center, is available to all current SONAR Artist, Professional and Platinum customers. All three SONAR versions are available globally through music and sound retailers as well as Valve’s Steam Store and the Cakewalk Store.
