Cakewalk Releases SONAR 2017.02 Update

Cakewalk has released the SONAR 2017.02 update for SONAR Artist, SONAR Professional, and SONAR Platinum. The new update includes the following:
Reuse existing Take lanes when recording — SONAR will now place newly recorded clips into existing Take lanes during loop recording or whenever possible. The result is that less lanes are created and tracks with lots of recorded clips when loop recording will have less lanes to manage.
Improved lane resizing — When resizing the height of Take lanes, the clicked lane will now anchored to its current position, ensuring the lane is always visible. This make working on Tracks with many Take lanes easier to manage.
Muted Take lanes are hidden in parent track when collapsed — When Take lanes are collapsed, any muted Take lanes are no longer shown in the parent track strip. This only applies to muted Take lanes, not muted clips. This provides a cleaner UI and lets you focus on just the clips that are audible.
Maximize/Restore lanes — Similar to track strips, you can now double-click a Take lane or Automation lane strip background to maximize/restore the lane
Additional Comping Improvements:
Recording, stopping, and resuming recording is now sample accurate
Comping with the Smart Tool is now clearly delineated by the middle point of the clip
Cursors no longer get incorrectly changed if the Help Module is open
When comping with Melodyne, cropping clips now updates the ARA regions
Fixed an issue where fades sometimes appeared on muted clips
