Cakewalk Announces ‘Ipswich’ SONAR Update

Direct Synth Recording, New 'Style Dial' Effects, Streamlined Clip Export

Cakewalk announces the new “Ipswich” update for SONAR Artist, Professional, and Platinum. The SONAR “Ipswich” release, a free download from the Cakewalk Command Center, is available to all current SONAR Artist, Professional, and Platinum customers.

The eighth in a series of monthly SONAR updates, Ipswich’s Direct Synth Recording option offers real-time, sample-accurate virtual instrument recording and rendering. Also, three new ProChannel “Style Dial” effects—Grit, Max, and Space—offer single-knob control over sophisticated processing in SONAR Professional and Platinum, and are also included in the new Mix Strip processing channel that is now integrated into SONAR Artist.

Enhanced file export and bounce options now support user-created and factory presets like “Share with SoundCloud,” as well as the ability to export entire “families” of individual clips, with or without time stamping. Users may specify capturing reverb and echo “tails” that extend beyond the clip being exported.

In addition, track icons now support the PNG format for levels of transparency, and Cakewalk reports multiple fixes and enhancements.
