After emu1616 instalation external inputs work fine (like mic, guitar or external cd-player) but wave signal from computer (from hard disc or cd-drive via EDI cable) sounds too slow ( sampling- pitch problem) and distorted like overload.

hmm, it could be something simple such as a faulty cable from mic to pc, it could be a faulty input if you are using a mixer, could be a faulty mic, it could even be a piece of software running in the background that is conflicting with sonar and causing this problem. This should be an easy problem for your "engineer" to sort out. as seeing it makes it 100 times easier to fault find. Thats part of being an engineer!
Make sure the switch is set to "mic/line" and not "guitar"
Your input level will be set by the "input L" or "input R" knob, depending on which side you are using. Start with them all the way down and then sing into the mic, turning them up until you get a signal about halfway up the bar in Cubase. That should give you plenty of headroom for clean vocals.
It may be difficult to get a good sound if you have one of those cheap mics that has a "1/4" jack instead of a 3-pin XLR jack. You might want to go to your local music/pro audio store and invest in a "condenser" microphone, which is good for vocals in the studio.
get a 1/8" stereo to mono splitter from radio shack or the like. it should have 1 1/8"male end, and two female ends, you could possibly get a 1/8" male with 2 1/4" female connectors, or use an all 1/4 inch adapter, with a 14/ to 1/8 adapter on the male end.
this should divide the guitar and vocals into left and right channels.
check out where your monitors are receiving their audio from.is it from the tascam or the onboard or audio another interface.first choose an output for your sound,if you using the tascam as an output for your sound connect your monitors to the phones input in front and use the mono mix knob to swap between audio coming from your usb or computer.if you want to hear from your mic or guitar move knob to usb if you want to hear from computer as in playbck move it to computer.
While you probably solved this already here goes. I'm not familiar with reaper but most audio recording software can select between using windows wdm & ASIO. If you aren't set to ASIO you won't be able to see the Hi-Z (Dock A/Dock B) inputs. It looks like Reaper supports ASIO so that should be fine. If though you are using a program that doesn't support ASIO you need to use the EMU patchmix and 'patch' the input through to a 'wave' channel.
The UA 25 needs a GOOD quality USB cable, the thicker the better. Cable loss means that by the time the 5V power supply from the computer reaches your Edirol, the voltage has dropped to about 4V, which then has to be boosted back up to 5 Volts and inverted to -5V.
Cheap cables will hamper performance or prevent it working at all ( I lost 2 hours once with this problme ) . Also avoid using the FRONT USB connectors on PCs, use the connectors that plug direct into the MOBO on the rear of the chasis.
1.make sure the guitar/mic switch is pointed to the guitar side. increase the guitar/mic level. increase the output level.
2.another thing you can do is check the "sound and audio devices" to see if everything is set to Edirol UA-4FX. If everything isnt, fix it so that it does. and remember to disable your computers stock sound card. Edirol UA-4FX is your new sound card from now on.
3. if thats not the case, try reinstalling the drivers.
4. If all of the above fail, you probably have a loose connection/ bad wiring in the guitar/mic 1/4" input. you can choose to open up the device and solder that yourself and possibly lose your warranty or have the entire unit replaced.
Hope I helped! good luck!
