[NAMM] Cakewalk Sonar Updated to v8.3
Cakewalk has announced a free update for SONAR 8 Producer and SONAR 8 Studio.
The 8.3 Update will be available February, 2009, as free a download for registered SONAR 8 customers.
The SONAR 8.3 Update adds new enhancements, engine optimizations, classic Roland sample content for Dimension Pro and Dimension LE, and drum kits for Session Drummer 2. In addition, the update addresses various performance issues reported by customers after SONAR 8's initial release.
The SONAR 8.3 update will include:
- Snap Presets: Flexibility in snap settings, allowing for audio and MIDI edits to specific musical or absolute times (to snap points, or by time intervals), clip events, transients, and markers.
- External Inserts: Allow you to insert outboard gear into your projects, while providing sample accurate delay compensation. New optimizations for SONAR 8.3: improved sync when mixing external hardware with other plug-ins that require delay compensation; multiple external inserts can be used in the same project; improved stability on multiprocessing machines; and improved sync while looping.
- Optimized multiprocessor load balancing: Handling of multithread processing for improved CPU utilization and better overall performance.
- Aim Assist enhancements: SONAR's visual guide for editing can now follow snap settings or automatically align to clip starts and ends.
- Vintage synth sounds for Dimension Pro: Original samples of the legendary Roland SH-101, TB-303, and VP-330, along with classic sounds of the Arp Odyssey, Moog Minimoog and Sequential Circuits Prophet5.
- Classic Drum kits for Session Drummer 2: Genre-defining original samples of the classic Roland TR-707, TR-727, TR-808, and TR-909 drum synthesizers, along with kits from Sequential Circuits Drumtraks and Linn Electronics LinnDrum.
- Guitar Rig 3 LE and TruePianos Amber Module updates: Offering support for Windows Vista x64.
A comprehensive list of all feature enhancements and refinement of the user experience will be posted when the SONAR 8.3 Update is released in February, 2009.
