CAKEWALK SONAR X3 PRODUCER - PROFESSIONAL RECORDING, MIXING, AND MASTERING SOFTWARE
Sonar X3 Producer from Cakewalk is music production software that contains all the recording, editing and mastering features needed to deliver a variety of professional audio and video related products. The software features unlimited simultaneous audio and MIDI tracks, FX, sends and busses, and full VST3 support using a 64-bit mix engine. The ProChannel console strip employs a console emulator and tape emulator to deliver authentic vintage analog sound.
The comping feature allows for recording any number of takes and then selecting the best parts from each, providing a quick way to get a flawless performance. VST3 support is now fully integrated, and the software automatically detects new VST plug-ins without the need to rescan. For pitch correction, time stretching, and audio to MIDI conversion, Melodyne Essential is included, and ARA (Audio Random Access) integration means no more waiting for data to transfer into the editor - simply click to open the audio clip and get to work.
The Matrix View allows for organizing audio and MIDI loops, phrases, and one shots into cells and columns for real-time triggering from one (or more) MIDI controllers. Use it to easily arrange song sections, or for complex sets of multiple grooves, one-shots, drops, and breakdowns - all playable in real-time. Additional enhancements include access to an organized collection of loops, one-shots, effects and instruments via a searchable browser, which can then be incorporated into projects with a simple drag and drop.
A full version of Addictive Drums 2 is included, bringing the world of premium drum kits and percussion to the computer. Highlights include many new Sound Shaping features (Transient Shaper, Tone Designer, more Kitpiece slots, Delerb processor, and more) , all new Beat Creation Tools (Beat Transformer, Grid Search, Beats Browser, direct MIDI recording, and much more) and upgraded ADpaks and MIDIpaks that make full use of AD2.
Direct access to YouTube is provided for posting finished projects, and integrated saving and sharing on the cloud is available via Gobbler.
