Cakewalk has announced the release of SONAR X1 Advanced Workshop: Next Level with Craig Anderton, an instructional video tutorial.
Picking up where SONAR X1 Advanced Workshop left off, SONAR X1 Advanced Workshop: Next Level stretches your imagination and redefines what you thought was possible with SONAR X1. With decades of experience as a producer, engineer, and performer, Craig Anderton dissects SONAR X1 to a level never seen before. And best of all, he de-mystifies these techniques for users of any level.
Well beyond the in-depth exploration of production techniques in the first Advanced Workshop, SONAR X1 Advanced Workshop: Next Level includes 30 never-before-seen video tutorials that will blow away even the most veteran SONAR user. With nearly 2 hours of run time, these video tutorials provide insight and techniques that only Craig, the quintessential gear-geek, can provide. Ever heard of an “Acoustifier”? Craig shows you how to construct one inside SONAR X1—in minutes. Wish you could re-create some of the vintage effects, like true tape flanging, that defined music in the 60s and 70s? Now you can, thanks to an entire chapter dedicated to Vintage Effects. How about ambient and spatial effects once possible only in expensive studios? Final touches to masters? Virtual guitar re-tuning? Unprecedented distortion sounds? All are possible inside SONAR X1, as this video guides you with step-by-step details.

You can record and mix with confidence knowing that what you hear from your speakers is a faithful representation of how your music will translate to the outside world.
The ARC advanced room correction system just got more advanced.
New in ARC 2

hamburg-audio has released Nuklear, the first plugin synthesizer based on advanced pulsar synthesis.
NUKLEAR™ comes with unique pulsar oscillators and enriches classic sound synthesis with essential new parameters: by disassociating the note pitch from the waveform length it is possible to create new, previously unheard sounds.
As opposed to classic sound synthesis not the waveform length, but solely its repetition rate is responsible for the resulting pitch. The length of the individual “pulsaret grains” is controlled and modulated by a separate parameter, the “pulsaret frequency”.
Advanced pulsar synthesis with 4 pulsar train generators and up to 16 voices.
26 pulsar waveforms and 4 pulsar envelope waveforms.
8 low frequency oscillators.
8 ADSHR envelope.
Built-in delay effect with sync option.
Built-in distortion effect with 3 distortion types.
16-step sequencer with 8 programmable patterns for note and multiple parameter modulation control.
Nuklear is available to purchase for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) for 169 EUR.
The Samplecraze Art of Drum Layering Advanced video tutorial continues where the highly successful book The Art of Drum Layering and the SOS Drum -layering Masterclass left off. Why wade through hundreds of drum sounds hoping to find the best one for your song when you can create your own unique drum sounds that will sit well in the mix without clashing with other elements or causing frequency smearing?
With over an hour of new content demonstrating all the techniques in real time, you’ll learn how to assemble new sounds using ADSR elements, how to morph them into new sonic textures using creative phase and phase cancellation techniques, and how to work with filters across multiple drum layers to avoid frequency clashes.
Eddie Bazil also reveals specialist mid/side techniques that add width, depth, and overall thickness to your final sounds, and even demonstrates how to stack layers for incredibly deep and hard-hitting drum sounds like those featured in his acclaimed DruMM libraries. If you need innovative drum sounds across a wide range of genres that slot perfectly into your mixes, this advanced video tutorial is the key.
The video tutorial is available to purchase for $15 USD.
