Starting with version 6, Sonar can take advantage of 64-bit internal processing, a 64-bit audio engine, and a 64-bit mixer on 64-bit versions of Windows Vista and Windows 7. Before introduction of Sonar X2 in October 2012, the entry-level Essential versions of Sonar (Sonar Home Studio and Sonar Essential) were 32-bit only. With the release of Sonar X2, the full program family is native 64-bit.

VST support is seamlessly integrated into SONAR 6 and no longer requires an external VST to DX adapter.

was version 6 of Sonar the first to support VST plugins without the adapter?

Sonar 5 claimed to also have "Integrated VST and VSTi support"

Sonar 4 makes zero mention of VST plugins at all
