Below we will list some of the most important updates and changes in this release. Please explore the „Readme“ file for more details. If you can't wait, head over to the Downloads section to get JSonar 8.5.

What's new

  • JSonar 8.5 supports both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows. Our main focus has been on Windows 7 OS as this is the most audio-friendly version of this OS up-to-date. As a side note, the latest version of the Hot Spot Clicker scripts also supports both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows.
  • JSonar 8.5 is reported to support all versions of JAWS starting from 7.1 and up to the most recent one (12.0 as of this writing).
  • This version of the scripts supports Cakewalk Sonar 6.2, Sonar 7.1, Sonar 8.3.1 and Sonar 8.5 in a single script set. No longer do you need to install JSonar6, JSonar7 etc in order to use Sonar software. Please note, however, that for Cakewalk Sonar 5 and lower, earlier versions of the JSonar scripts still exist and are to be used.
  • Introduced support for the Drum Map Manager.
  • Improvements for the Event View including displaying and hiding of hidden events.
  • Improved support for both Loop Explorer and Media Browser.
  • Matrix View is now supported by JSonar.
