Cakewalk has announced the launch of new academic versions of SONAR 7 Producer and SONAR 7 Studio Editions.
Included with the new Academic Editions is SONAR Music Projects, a set of materials aimed at secondary school Music classes up to GCSE. The 10 projects introduce some of SONAR’s features and help students develop a range of musical and technical skills.
Each project contains teacher notes and student project sheets in PDF format, along with SONAR files. A SONAR Skills Guide provides easy reference to the program features used in the projects. The SONAR Music Projects CD-ROM also includes a “starter” set of audio clips to inspire ideas.
Cakewalk’s UK distributor, EDIROL Europe, has also made SONAR Music Projects available separately on a free CD-ROM that includes the current trial version of SONAR. This enables teachers to explore some program basics in the context of actual lesson material, before deciding to purchase.
