From getting a great tone to releasing the final mix, today's musicians must master every element of the music production process. SONAR X2 is there every step of the way and takes each element to the next level of power and usability. And thanks to the revolutionary Skylight user interface, SONAR X2 lets you move seamlessly among the elements, instantly going from recording to editing to mixing and back again. And do it all with a single Smart Tool. It's genius.
Play it loud
Overloud brings their critically acclaimed amp modeling technology to SONAR with Overloud TH2 SONAR and Overloud TH2 Producer (only in SONAR X2 Producer). From chunk to funk, TH2 has it covered with big, lifelike tone and expressive playability. Whether it's a crushing riff, shimmering rhythm part, or blistering lead, with over 10 amps to choose from and authentic, manufacturer approved models of classic gear, TH2 dishes the tone you crave. Plug it in. Turn it up!
Active Controller Technology makes mapping controls dead simple and remembers every control for every synth and every effect. And your mappings are ready to go in every new project. You control whatever is in focus and ACT does the rest.
Enter the Matrix
Why edit and arrange your loops when you can play them instead? The Matrix View lets you organize audio and MIDI loops, phrases, and one shots into cells and columns for real-time triggering from one (or more) MIDI controllers. Use it for easy arranging of song sections or for complex sets of multiple grooves, one-shots, drops, and breakdowns - all playable in real-time. And the entire performance can be captured onto discrete tracks in SONAR's Track View where it can be freely edited and mixed until it's exactly what you want. The new per-cell trigger resolution and enhanced routing with support for external MIDI hardware make it a formidable creative force. What are you waiting for? Free your mind...
Let there be more light
Why struggle with the cluttered interfaces, poor navigation, and antiquated window management that plague most DAWs? SONAR’s award winning Skylight interface gives you a clear and configurable creative space that adapts to your workflow and is tailor made for today’s high-resolution, widescreen displays. It makes window management a thing of the past and takes ergonomics to a totally new level.
With SONAR X2, Skylight has been cleverly enhanced to make every aspect of music production even faster and more fluid. Dock windows where they feel best, instantly switch between configurable Screensets, and navigate with unparalleled speed and precision with Timeline Zoom, Auto Zoom, and the enhanced Aim Assist. Skylight even switches tools and snap settings automatically based on context and zoom level so you can quit fiddling with the software and get on with the business of making music.
