SONAR Artist from Cakewalk is music production software containing many of the recording, editing, and mastering tools needed to deliver professional audio and video products. The software features unlimited simultaneous audio tracks, MIDI tracks, FX sends, and busses, and provides full VST3 support using a 64-bit mix engine. The Artist edition is a trimmed down version of the Professional and Platinum editions, containing less instruments and effects, but with most of the main tools still available.

A "comping" feature allows for recording any number of takes and then selecting the best parts from each, providing a quick way to get a perfect performance. With VST3 support the software automatically detects new VST plug-ins without the need to rescan. Unlimited undo is available, and ARA (Audio Random Access) integration means no more waiting for data to transfer into the editor — simply click to open an audio clip. The 64-bit audio mix engine supports a software mixing console with built-in EQ, and the program ships with eleven virtual synthesizers and twenty-seven audio effects.

A Matrix View allows for organizing audio and MIDI loops, phrases, and one shots into cells and columns for real-time triggering from one (or more) MIDI controllers. Use it to easily arrange song sections, or for complex sets of multiple grooves, one-shots, drops, and breakdowns — all playable in real-time. Additional enhancements include access to an organized collection of loops, one-shots, effects and instruments via a searchable browser, which can then be incorporated into projects with a simple drag and drop.

A new membership program offers continuous updates to the software, including new features, improvements, fixes, content, and video tutorials that guide the user through the process of creating audio content. One year membership is included. Direct access to YouTube is provided for posting finished projects, and Soundcloud, Facebook, and Twitter sharing is enabled.
