Enter the Matrix

Why edit and arrange your loops when you can play them instead? The Matrix View lets you organize audio and MIDI loops, phrases, and one shots into cells and columns for real-time triggering from one (or more) MIDI controllers. Use it for easy arranging of song sections or for complex sets of multiple grooves, one-shots, drops, and breakdowns – all playable in real-time. And the entire performance can be captured onto discrete tracks in SONAR’s Track View where it can be freely edited and mixed until it’s exactly what you want. The new per-cell trigger resolution and enhanced routing with support for external MIDI hardware make it a formidable creative force. What are you waiting for? Free your mind.
