Created by musicians, for musicians
Cakewalk is a company of musicians with a mission
to help other musicians. We dont just work here; we all use SONAR on a daily basis to make our own music. We do it for you, we do it for us. Over the years weve worked to make SONAR the leading choice to compose, record, edit, mix, and master your music. When it came time to design the new features in SONAR 8.5 we decided to focus on what we felt would be the absolute best enhancements to help us all be more creative and produce better sounding music. Weve added new beat creation and arrangement tools, a new drum instrument loaded with stellar sounding kits, enhanced audio quantizing, new multi-stage effects plug-ins, and so much more. For this brochure, we thought it would be fun to introduce some of the real musicians who use SONAR on a daily basis. Theyll tell you about their favorite features, and you can learn about what SONAR offers to make you more creative, regardless of what genre of music you produce. Weve also included a special section from our friends at Intel, so you can learn how their latest technologies will benefit you as a musician. Were excited about the new version 8.5, and were sure you will be too. SONAR 8.5the musicians digital audio workstation. Read on

Intel X25 SATA Solid-State Drive Fast, Quiet, and Safe Storage for your Audio Data
Solid state drives are an emerging type of hard drive with numerous benefits for audio production. SSDs are much faster than normal hard drives providing recording and playback of more simultaneous tracks. But probably most important, a solid state drive has no moving partsthat means quiet operation in your critical listening environment and your chances of losing your priceless audio data to mechanical failure are cut to virtually zero. FASTSolid State Drives are much faster than traditional hard drives. Accessing your data faster translates into simultaneous playback and recording of more tracks, and also faster load times and lower latencies when working with large banks of samples QUIETno moving parts means no hard drive access noise, and less cooling is required so theres less fan noise. At last, a quiet computer in your studio SAFESSD hard drives provides a new level of insurance for your audio productions. No moving parts cut the chances of mechanical drive failure to virtually zero, so youll never lose a take or your archives

Key benefits

Offers Hyper-threading Technologies on a quad core processor, which functionally gives you 8 independent virtual cores to process your productions With the Core i7, Intel effectively removed the frontside bus which reduces the bottlenecking when working at low latencies, commonly found with older chipsets
When film composer Shawn Clement and I teamed up to create a new version of my single Everything You Said to show off the combined power of SONAR and the Intel Core i7 processor, we were completely blown away with the results. We added a complete virtual orchestra, over 140 tracks, 24 virtual instruments, and 50+ effects all playing back live at 2 MS of latency. The crazy thing is, we could have kept going! The processor was only using 1/2 of its potentialthe creative possibilities are mindblowing. Cori Yarckin, Singer/Songwriter

The new I7 architecture gives you more than double the memory bandwidth, so you can quickly access the RAM in your machine when you need it most The Core i7s innovative new Turbo Boost technology will automatically overclock the processor to match your workload. When your project spikes, you can push your machine to its thermal limit To put it simplythe Core i7 will give you more when you are feeling creative: more tracks, more simultaneous effects, and more simultaneous instruments
