    Ins2map.zip (Listed Nov 18 2015)
    ralf (Ralf Sesseler)
    This tool will convert an instrument definition (ins file) into a drum map for Cakewalk SONAR. (Essentially, any text file with a mapping from midi note number to drum instrument name can be used.) The created drum map uses default values for most parameters and is not linked to a particular virtual instrument, so it's mainly the first step and may require enhancements to be done in SONAR directly. 
    Download and Further Information http://dis.sesseler.de/ In the left menu area, click on “Cakewalk SONAR”. Then select “Instrument to Drum Map” to download the file.

    SONAR Launchpad
    This program is a different approach to presenting SONAR projects, project templates, bundles and MIDI files. Currently this program works with SONAR Producer and Platinum. As a result, only directories containing the keyword Platinum or Producer are searched for SONAR programs. While it should work with 32bit versions, it has not been tested. Download includes 64 bit program and a readme file.

    SONAR Plug-in Upsample Editor
    This program is a front end to edit existing plug-in upsample settings in AUD.ini. The program can also make backup copies of the existing settings or restore settings from a backup. This program should be used only where 64bit SONAR is installed. Because 32bit and 64bit SONAR share the same AUD.ini, if both are installed and use the upsample feature, the 32bit plug-in names will not be found if the plug-in is not in the 64bit VST Inventory. This will not affect the functioning of the program but will make it difficult work with 32bit plug-ins which are installed exclusively in 32bit SONAR. This program requires no special installation. No files or registry entries are created  upon installation. This program maintains the plug-in upsample data in Aud.ini. Records can be deleted, exported, imported or values changed. Download includes 64 bit program and a readme file.

    VSTPLUGIN

    PDC INFO (the delay that each plugin introduces)
    Since SONAR doesn't give us a way to see PDC info per-plugin like other DAWs do Silktone created  VST3 plugin that will display the Plugin Delay Compensation that the host reports to the plugin. So the idea is that you insert this PDC Info plugin in-between your other plugins, and it displays the PDC value at that point in the signal chain.
    So then if you insert 2 of these plugins, one before and one after some other plugin for which you want to see its PDC value, you can calculate that sandwiched plugin's PDC value by looking at the difference in two PDC values.

     >>Thread with download link<<

    Notes:
    1. You need to Stop/Start the transport to show the correct PDC info in the PDC Info plugin UI.
    2. You can insert multiple instances of the PDC Info plugin at different points in the signal chain.
    3. You can easily drag existing instances of the plugin to different FX chain locations, or to different tracks etc. So you only need to insert two plugins, then just drag drop them around different plugins to see that plugin's PDC info (remember to Stop/Start the transport each time!).
    4. There is a bug in SONAR where it doesn't tell the plugin the input latency, only the output latency. AFAICT, the VST3 spec requires the host to tell the plugin both input and output latency, but unfortunately it looks like SONAR isn't implementing this correctly. Because of the missing input PDC value, things will look a bit backwards. So a PDC Info plugin at the start of an FX chain will show a higher PDC value than the instance at the end of the FX chain. This "output" PDC value is the time remaining until you will actually hear the signal (including the output driver's delay).
