Take control of every step of the music production process with Cakewalk’s SONAR X2, the digital audio workstation that moves you seamlessly between recording, editing, and mixing. Author Garrick Chow begins by visiting the most important parts of the SONAR interface, including the Track pane, the Browser, and the MultiDock. He then dives straight into recording live instruments, importing prerecorded audio, and recording and editing MIDI tracks in the Piano Roll editor.
Next, learn how to use SONAR’s powerful tools for performing edits like splits, fades, or trims, and find out how to apply effects, mix your track, and automate changes during playback. Garrick wraps up the course by showing you how to export your final mix and back up and archive your project to future-proof your sound.
