Perhaps better than most other DAWs in many ways. How do I know? Because I recorded my entire 6th Album with Cakewalk Sonar Platinum and put in countless hours working with some of the new tools. This was done really without a hick-up at all.
I spent many years complaining about cakewalk sonar and Low Cost Cakewalk Sonar 7 Software been through literally hell trying to get things right as a producer at times. But now productivity with sonar is fun and engaging, as well as motivating. Lets dig right in! Whats New in The Platinum Addition? Lets start with The Pro Channel. OMG this is like home for me. Eq for a track is write at your finger tips. The exciting thing with the pro channel is that you can literally build your own channel strip to add in things like analog compression, a tape emulator, reverb and much more.
The addition of the Pro Low Cost Cakewalk Sonar 7 Software was a game changer for me. It was first seen in the earlier Sonar X series but Cakewalk has nearly perfected this tool. Each channel Low Cost Cakewalk Sonar 7 Software a good starting point for fx inserts close at hand. Melodyne Essentials Low Cost Cakewalk Sonar 7 Software Melodyne is now native inside the Sonar Platinum interface. The program itself has gotten a whole lot better.
Not only can you retouch that vocal track to get all those pitches in the right place. You can even create chords from a single vocal track. Scale a track to stay in one key. The list goes on. But this kick ass plugin alone makes Cakewalk Sonar Platinum worth a whole lot more. If you use Kontakt like me, you probably want to just record one track instead of all of the multi out tracks coming from Kontakt with the freeze. This really sped things up for me as I could simply just record a sound from the Low Cost Cakewalk Sonar 7 Software instrument right onto the actual input track.
With the track now recorded, I could free up some ram by ditching the midi and the kontakt sound. Very useful! Multi Dock. All of us work differently so having the ability to attach basically anything to the MultiDock Vsti, piano roll, console view, made my work flow much clearer.
And having your own screen sets makes it easier to try out what works for you. I generally keep the MultiDock open on a second monitor. But it comes free with Sonar Platinum Producer! The program uses intelligent algorithms to define your style of music and then create a commercial CD Master.
How cool is that! The tools I mentioned are really just the tip of the iceberg. Comes standard with Addictive drums. Melodyne should I say more? Unlimited Audio tracks. Seamless work flow with MultiDock and screen set options.
The Prochannel: Add any effects chain you want. Get analog hybrid or digital sound. And lets not forget about the Tape Simulator! Fast inserting and editing of VSTi. A bunch of great sounding stock audio effects to choose from. Command center can get in the way sometimes.
