Cakewalk are best known for the inroads they have made into creating a more efficient and user-friendly life for producers and engineers. Their Cakewalk Sonar DAW has become a steadily stronger player, already impressing a huge number of industry professionals and amateurs alike, especially in the States.
With more recent developments in the form of Sonar X1, though, Cakewalk has begun to attract a lot more attention in the UK too – the innovative take on UI with smart tools has provided a fluid, helpful alternative to other DAWs. Editing, mixing, mastering and publishing processes have all been neatly synthesised in to customisable controls – you’re even able to edit separate opacities on windows to facilitate one-monitor/display operation.
As Cakewalk’s Sonar X1 continues to gain momentum we’ll be making sure that we’re able to meet demand at DV247 – if you’re new to this DAW and would like advice on the benefits of switching to Sonar, or which version of the software to buy then feel free to call and let us talk you through the options.
Cakewalk is also responsible for numerous other software plug-ins and standalones – the likes of Guitar Tracks Pro 3, E-MU Proteus and Xtreme Lead-1 – and a number of feature-packed digital audio interfaces that allow songwriters and guitarists to get their ideas down cleanly and easily.
