Boston, MA (January 4, 2013)—Cakewalk has released a free upgrade to its Sonar X2 Essential, which reportedly includes more than 250 fixes and enhancements based on customer feedback, Windows 8 support, an updated playlist view and now time markers, accessibility for vision impaired users and multi-touch support through Intel’s Ultrabooks.
