Question about Edirol UA-25 External Sound System
Hi I am using the Sonar LE program that Edirol UA-25 came with and I want I am following the tutorials. I have followed everything they say but I hear no audio playback when I listen to a file. When I listen to the sample track that comes with the UA-25 it is fine so the problem lies in Sonar LE. I have looked through the troubleshooting and it is useless. PLEASE HELP!
Microsoft re-engineered the audio bus for Windows. HD Audio is hardware specific, in the sense that specific drivers have to be written to make a piece of hardware compatible with it. Roland is not writing a driver for the UA 25 because they want you to buy an UA 25EX. Get my drift? The UA 25 uses Kernel Streaming, the old way, which exists in parallel, sort of, with the HD Audio bus. But the new ways are always prioritized over the old ways in software, so there is bus contention (glitching).
To fix this there are a few things you can try:
1) Roll back to SP2. SP3 implements the HD Audio bus, so don't use that implementation. If your laptop has an HD audio sound card then I doubt it would work, but your UA 25 would.
2) Try ASIO 4 ALL. This fixed everything but glitching in VST instruments.
3) Reduce the amount of stuff your computer is doing. Optimize your OS by turning off the cute shaded windows and desktops and various processes that you don't need to see or use. There are sites for this. This increases available RAM, CPU time, etc.
4) Video hardware acceleration, sometimes, would fix bugs in software left in by not so clever programmers.
4) You can always just give-up and go along with the bastards and buy new stuff and toss the old stuff.

I am using SONAR LE with the SAMSON G TRACK and could not play the file once it was EXPORTED. Windows Media Player would not play the file or any of my LifeCam files I had until the USB cord was disconnected from the Samson G Track. It then played great. This could be a glitch between the software and the component. I hope that this may be of some help to you.

Hi, try changing your settings in the Audio and sound devices in control panel. Goodluck mistyman

As to not getting registration window- you have to right click icon and run as admin to provide permissions to actually enter in the registration code. That stops the window from re-appearing

Make sure, if you are using windows you have the right sound card settings (control panel->audio and sound devices or however) as mentioned in the manual. Also, using sonar LE make sure to have correct settings (options->audio settings). i had trouble with playback too but now everything's working fine. in my sonar settings i use the ASIO driver mode, and mark 'share with other programs'. make sure the right sound card is selected too (options->audio->drivers) and then it sould appear in the advanced window (as for the playback and the record timing master). other possible solutions might be in the options-> midi devices window, though i doubt that. I hope this can be helpfull. Good luck! btw, any solutions on how to NOT get the registration window on the startup?
