    HS2004 crashes

    This has been happening for a few months now. I have a large collection of VSTi/DXi synths. I notice when I load up a particularly large sample/loop from the library, HS 2004 crashes and I get the dreaded Microsoft Send/Don't send error message. Instinctively, I feel it is a virtual memory...

    VST Wrapper 4.5.1 problems

    I have just up issued the latest patch and now when I load certain Dxi synths like Atmosphere or Battery, the instrument does not appear in the Fx box in track view in HS2004. I don't know if it is coincidence or not? The device loads okay and plays okay - it just doesn't list it in the fx box...

    Re-setting Sonar-s VST plugin directory

    Question: I was having some problems installing Atmosphere and when Sonar couldn't find it, Sonar asked me if i wanted to delete reference to it from its schedule/memory/register. Stupidly, I checked "yes". So now, with Atmosphere nicely installed correctly, no matter how I run the vst...

    Constant drop out using Sir 1010

    Does anyone else have this problem? Cannot use it at all, I have my i/o buffer set at 512 and even if my ASIO panel is set for 2048 dma buffer size (46mSec latency) it still can't play. Its the only vst that has this effect on my DAW :confused: Any suggestions?

    Maximising soft synth usage in Sonar

    Can anyone please tell me how I can maximise/optimise my softsynth usage/Dxi instruments in Sonar/HS 2004? Is it too much to expect to load patches in real-time whilst playing without glitches? CPU usage is never more than 35%. After opening Stylus RMX, Kontakt and Absynth 3 in seperate tracks...

    Offset attenuation left and right channels

    Not really a Sonar problem but hey, I know there's enough brain power on this forum to solve my problem. I have a Delta 66+omni. If I plug my geetar in the left hand (channel 1) I get a 6db attenuation of the right hand channel - the right hand channel is quieter. If I then plug my geetar in...

    HS2004 - can I use my existing HS 2002 wrapper?

    Fathers Day on Sunday brings more joy in the guise of HS2004. This will upgrade my HS2002. :) But the question I have is does anyone know if my Fxpansion wrapper that I bought before Cakewalk purchased the product coding work with 2004? I'm guessing that it will but with software, you just...

    Aligning VST midi notes to PRV

    I am trying to align Battery kits to PRV (Piano Roll View) notes. I have a midi drum pattern which triggers the "wrong" hits in Battery and I want to change them. Battery's keyboard and the PRV keyboard don't seem to be able to be aligned. For example, in PRV, bass drum is assigned to key C3...

    ASIO drivers

    I use HS 2002 which only has wdm & MME drivers available. At the fastest setting and with 6 buffers, the fastest I can get is 11.3 mSecs latency. For a 2.4 Gig, 512 Meg Ram P4 running win xp, thats disapointing. I would consider upgrading to HS2004 if I felt that ASIO drivers would provide...
