Cakewalk has announced a new rolling update for its SONAR Artist, Professional and Platinum digital audio workstation software for Windows.

Cakewalk SONAR Load Balancing

Your CPU works hard, so we’d like to do what we can to help it work more efficiently. This update includes Plug-In Load Balancing for Platinum, which allows running more plug-ins with fewer dropouts.

For users of all versions, there are also new CPU meter modes to gauge performance, as well as Quick Group freezing—now it’s easy to save lots of CPU power by freezing multiple tracks at once.

Changes in SONAR 2016.09

  • Plug-in Load Balancing.
  • Expanded CPU Performance Meter Modes.
  • Quick Group Freeze.
  • Full Screen Toggle.
  • Ready for Melodyne Essential 4.1.
  • Softube Saturation Knob Update.
  • Fixes and Enhancements.

The update is available from the Cakewalk Command Center.
