Roland Unleash X2 Software Range

SONAR X2 Essential/SONAR X2 Studio/SONAR X2 Producer
Cakewalk by Roland Sonar X2 Production Suite
Following the success of Roland's X1 range of production software, more details are now gradually being released about SONAR X2 Essential, Producer and Studio suites.

This new series of software sees the blanket release of a refined version of FX Chains from the X1 range. Unlike X1, FX Chains 2.0 comes as part of SONAR X2 Essential, Studio and Producer.

Apart from this feature becoming both more refined and more widely commercially available, it has also been partnered with some of SONAR's other features.

When added to the Producer exclusive feature ProChannel it enables multi-effect possibilities in any order, at any time, which are drag-and-drop rout-able and collapsible.

It also enables gain staging and multiple modules within ProChannel to name but a few of its exciting new features.

With all the features of the original made that bit more efficient, and a workflow and usability described as 'seamless' by Cakewalk, making greater use of their award winning Skylight User Interface than ever before, expect this series to be one of the must have packages in the run-up to Christmas.

SONAR X2 Essential, Studio and Producer suites will be available on from September 2012.
