Cakewalk SONAR 2016.03 Update

SONAR 2016.03 release increases functionality with an in-app Help Module, adds Melodyne Tempo Detection, a new instrument from Applied Acoustic Systems, and more.

Cakewalk’s SONAR 2016.03 update includes Melodyne Tempo Detection.

Cakewalk announces the new SONAR 2016.03 release for SONAR Artist, Professional and Platinum versions. The SONAR 2016.03 update, a free download from the Cakewalk Command Center, is available to all current SONAR Artist, Professional and Platinum customers.

The new Help Module view responds dynamically to how someone uses the program, and can guide beginners through SONAR while alerting veterans to shortcuts and additional techniques. Many descriptions also include a “Learn More” link that opens a related topic in SONAR’s online Help. The Help module can float, or be docked above or below the Browser as preferred by the user.

2016.03 also brings Melodyne Tempo Detection through SONAR’s powerful ARA (Audio Random Access)-based Melodyne integration. Similar to drag-and-drop MIDI extraction, dragging a standard audio clip or Melodyne region effect to SONAR’s timeline creates an instant tempo map so clips and syncing FX can follow a project’s tempo—or even follow varying tempos, as with live recordings.

Additionally, the latest monthly release updates the Lounge Lizard electric piano soft synth from A|A|S, and adds A|A|S Ultra Analog Session 2. Its ound banks include Arpeggio, Bass, Lead, Pad, and Polysynth (with signature presets from artists like Richard Devine and Sean Divine). Users can also create their own presets and signature sounds using the effect processor, lowpass filter, arpeggiator and triangular waveform LFO.
