ReWire

In addition to DX instruments, there are software-based synthesizers that run as separate applications. This means that normally, they cannot be connected in any way to a sequencing application such as SONAR. If, however, the software synth application supports a technology called ReWire, the synth can be used within SONAR, almost exactly like a DX instrument.

ReWire is a virtual connection technology that allows two different music applications to connect to one another and share audio data, synchronize their internal clocks, and share transport control. For example, Cakewalk’s Project5 software synthesizer studio supports ReWire. Project5 provides built-in synthesis and sequencing features. When ReWired with SONAR, you can stream audio from Project5 to SONAR just like you would with a DX instrument. In addition, the sequencer aspects in both Project5 and SONAR are completely synchronized, meaning that the Now time in SONAR would correspond to the exact same sequencer time in Project5. And both applications share common transport functions, meaning that using the Play, Stop, Rewind, and so on functions in one application triggers that same function in the other application. The ReWire technology is very powerful and allows you to use SONAR with any other ReWire-compatible application on the market.
