Cakewalk SONAR 7 PE includes Boost 11

I’m not a regular Cakewalk user but if I had to find a new DAW as a home, that DAW would be SONAR 7. It is not version 7.0 specifically, I have been a fan of Cakewalk’s workflow since Pro Audio 9.0 (prior versions were just too wonky). Cakewalk are doing a great thing by including the new Boost 11 plugin with the PE bundle. Boost 11 is probably not going to replace the Waves Ultra- and Multi- Maximizer plugins for me, but if you don’t have the scratch to drop on those plugins then the Boost 11 is just what the doctor ordered for your mastering needs. I do think the interface has some very cool elements. Check out this video demonstration.

I especially like the two waveform displays at the bottom. Read a few of my articles and you will be able to tell I am a big fan of visual feedback. I love dynamics plugins that give me a nice visual representation directly on the waveform of what parts of the wave are above the threshold. Cakewalk certainly have a group of very sharp people steering their product’s future!
