VocalSync
VocalSync tightens vocals by aligning one part to another and it’s essential for matching dialogue to picture, synchronizing background vocals, and tightening doubled vocal parts. Use VocalSync to perfect your parts’ timing without splitting and moving clips. VocalSync is part of SONAR’s Region FX workflow so you can process and edit multiple dub parts to a single guide track, all within the fluid workflow of SONAR’s award-winning Skylight interface.

REmatrix Solo
REmatrix Solo is a zero-latency, streamlined, single-layer ProChannel version of the acclaimed REmatrix convolution reverb [how can it be zero-latency? It processes audio in a computer] from Overloud/MoReVox. It features 100 Impulse Response (IR) presets, including plates, halls, rooms, early reflections, and specialty spaces - you can even import your own IRs.

The New Control Bar
Stack, scroll, minimize, and maximize any and all Control Bar modules for one-click access to your favorite tools. When collapsed, hover the mouse over a module to display its parameters for an even more efficient Skylight environment.

Introducing Mix Recall - save and switch to various mix scenes for easy, one-click comparisons
Never second-guess yourself on a mix again. Mix Recall lets you save and switch to various mix scenes for easy, one-click comparisons. Swap out effects, fader positions, or every parameter so that you can restore an original mix, create remixes, or just entertain a client’s suggestion. Mix tracks specifically for radio, podcast, video, or mp3, and then bounce every version in a single export.

Stunning New FX Chains
From single-knob utilities, to boutique digital stompboxes, to sound-generating environments and additional effects, these new FX chains will kick-start your creativity and streamline the production process.

AudioSnap
New detection algorithms re-boot AudioSnap into a next-generation toolkit. Stretch a song from one tempo to another, sync your recordings to audio loops, tighten your drums and convert them to MIDI…and the new level of performance comes wrapped in a new look and new layout.
