What fresh delights has Cakewalk prepared for Sonar 8?

Cakewalk has revealed that Sonar 8 will be available for pre-order from September 22 2008. At the moment, this is all the company is saying about the software - spec details are being kept under wraps for now.

Seasoned music software observers won't be surprised to learn that a new version of Sonar is on the way. It's almost become a tradition that Cakewalk announces a major update at this time of the year.

Because no specs have been revealed, though, we can now look forward to two weeks of speculation regarding Sonar 8's feature set.

Users have been putting together a wish list on the Cakewalk forums for months now, so it'll be interesting to see how many of their most-wanted features have made it into the new version.

MusicRadar will bring you all the details as and when they come to light.
