Sonar X1 Studio contains all the fundamental recording and editing power that has made Sonar such a popular choice amongst musicians and engineers for years.
Now, with a completely redesigned user interface, creating music in Sonar is more intuitive and fluid than ever. With all the cutting edge creation tools and core technologies Sonar has to offer, plus an expanded set of professional instruments and effects, Sonar X1 Studio is the ideal choice for just about any studio environment.
DAW 2.0 has arrived
Sonar has been one of the most popular DAW's on the market for nearly a decade now. And we've learned a lot along the way. But things have changed over the past ten years, so we felt it was time to take our more than 20 years experience in creating music software, combine it with cutting edge music creation tools, and wrap it in a totally modern design.
Sonar X1 Studio Music Production Software Features
Skylight - Welcome to your workspace
Let's face it - constantly shuffling and resizing lots of floating windows is so last decade. Precisely suited for today’s music production, Sonar X1's unparalleled user interface design speeds up workflow and provides a clean and modern creation environment. Skylight introduces a next generation workspace and ushers in a new level of simplicity by providing an intelligent interface that moves beyond contemporary, single-window design and layout clutter.
- Unlimited audio and MIDI tracks for recording any sized project
- Fix the timing of audio tracks with the click of a mouse
- Speed up your workflow with the unparalleled user interface design
- 13 audio effects designed to make any mixing task a breeze
- Four legendary VSTi's from the renowned synth developer RGC. Includes Zeta+ Analog synth

Browser - All your content unified
The completely redesigned Browser organizes all of your content into one, easily managed place. Drag and drop just about anything you can think of from the Browser directly to your workspace.
Inspector - Find what you’ve been looking for
Get all your clip, track, and channel data - centralized and at your fingertips. The new Inspector shows a wealth of data in a small footprint and allows for ergonomic track mixing. With Skylight, it’s also fully collapsible, expandable, dockable and floatable.
Screensets - Just the way you remembered it Per-project Screensets remember every window position, size and state and are accessed directly from the Control Bar or via your qwerty keyboard. Default Screensets are ready-to-go for just about any production scenario imaginable or create your own Screensets for tracking, mixing, jamming or experimenting. Recall everything - exactly the way you left it.
- Work smarter, not harder
Sonar’s tools have been completely revamped for X1. Most functions are now performed with a single implement that switches automatically based on context. This dramatically speeds up editing and arranging by eliminating the need to constantly switch tools.
Control Bar - Total control freak
Access crucial functions quickly and clearly with the new modular Control Bar. Modules logically group related functions and can be arranged to suit your desire. It’s fully expandable, dockable and floatable.
MultiDock - A place for everything
The MultiDock is an integral part of the Skylight interface that allows you to dock and easily access any of Sonar’s views all in one place. The Console View, Step Sequencer, Piano Roll - even instruments and effects can all be contained within one consolidated area. For ultimate flexibility, the MultiDock itself can be quickly collapsed or expanded and can even be placed on an entirely separate monitor.
