It's possible to get additional MP3 and OGG exporting with MCT6 by following this guide
DV8ER Dec 14, 2014 @ 9:17pm 
Can you add a link for details on how to upgrade? Thanks!
PRG013 Aug 27, 2014 @ 1:18pm 
X = Yes.
Rusty Nipples Aug 22, 2014 @ 9:03pm 
Wait so if it has an X it means it does? I just want to know if I can upload songs to soundcloud.
Anyone know?
Dan Gonzalez [Cakewalk]  [author] Dec 23, 2013 @ 10:07am 
Anytime!
RJay45 Dec 23, 2013 @ 8:17am 
Ah I see, I should have looked into TH2 Sonar, thanks for the reply :)
Dan Gonzalez [Cakewalk]  [author] Dec 23, 2013 @ 7:59am 
RJay45 -Th2 Creator, Th2 SONAR, and Th2 Producer are compatible with SONAR X3. They will open your Th2 Creator presets. The Th2s that are included in SONAR X3 are just larger/better versions of the version you currently have.
RJay45 Dec 22, 2013 @ 2:55pm 
I want to upgrade from MC6 to Sonar X3 (current offer) but I see TH2 Creator is missing from all the other versions. Is there a way to get that in SX3?

Thank You!
