    Midi bleedover

    I have a simple 4 chord section..G...G/F#...A minor ....C major. It repeate 4 times. Using Midi keyboard with strings set to it. Motu Symphonic software. So, the 4th chord C bleeds into the first chord G, obviously causing bad dissonance. But it doesn't happen anywhere else. I tried making that...

    I did a 3 track midi piece. All faders look great, not low, not too high,, no clipping, But when I export and play on another player, the volume is low, you have to crank it up just to get a sound. Any ideas. I tried cranking the master volume where I thought it would clip, it didnt, but was...

    I wanted to edited video that already has sound on it. It is in mp4. But I couldn't import. Does Sonar not import mp4, should I change to another format. Its a long video and I basically just want to cut parts out (would like to work sound a bit too but they are combined so I believe and cant...

    Slowing down Audio track

    I have a long guitar rhythm track that came out good, just a bit fast. I know I can easily slow a midi track down using the metronome. That didn't work for the audio track it seems. Is there a way to slow down an audio track and few notches without changing pitch? Thanks for any info.

    Delay Hell

    I have delay with guitar notes. If I turn off Input Echo or Audio Engine button the delay stops. But then I can't use plugins like Amplitube. So the guitar is dry. No matter what buffer or latency setting I use for sonar or tascam 1082 board it wont go away. Drivng me nuts. And Ideas? Setting...

    Can't rid of guitar distortion

    Use Amplitube for a while now. Set to clean and still distorted. Strange. Tried again without Amplitube and plugged straight into Tascam 1082. Still distorted. So not Amplitube issue I think. Why would the signal distort? Volumes are under the red. I've been doing it this way for a couple of...

    OMF Export

    Have a midi project I am sending from Sonar 5 PE to Protools. WhenI go to File/ Export, the omf command isnt highlighted (link not working). Anyone know why this would be? I've tried it with everything highlighed or not highlighted. The export/ audio is good, not the omf. Thanks

    When recording vocal and guitar, Everythings starts fine, but then sounds starts to do a (hard to explain) shorting out, crackling kind of sound on both tracks. I have to save, exit and start up. Then its gone. Record for a few more minutes and it happens again. Had this system for a year and...

    audio Slapback

    Thought I'd repost here. Getting slapback echo when running guitar through plugins like amplitube or even simple reverb or chorus plugins. Just started happening out of the blue. When I turn them off by hitting echo button in Sonar, theres no slapback. Don't think its a buffer issue because of...

    slapback echo problem

    Keep in mind, I've been doing this all year with no problems. I run a guitar through a plugin like Amplitube. Set the track I/O. Hit the echo button. Alls been fine, all of a sudden I get echo. Turn it off and I get no plugin. Again, never before. Thought it was an Amplitube thing, but did same...
