Sonar 6 exception error and TTS 1 drum velocity problem

Hey. I am using Sonar Studio 6 and find that when recording a piano part in midi, after around three minutes of playing I get a Sonar has encountered exception no....After disabling my Audigy and installing Creative Digital SX the problem remained the same. However, I borrowed a copy of Sonar Producer 4 and I didn`t get the problem.My Sonar 6 is a paid up original copy and Ihave no intention of using someone`s copy. The experiment did however show that the problem is in version 6.Another problem I have with Sonar 6 is in the dumkit section of the TTS synth. Either the C or B used for opne of the bass drums does not recognize different velocities and plays back the sample at a constant velocity.

    Well guys I solved the problem myself. I contacted Cakewalk and they emailed me a bunch of suggestions, all of which I tried but to no avail. In the edn though I fixed my main problem by unistalling the Audigy drivers and reinstalling the original ones that came on the cd. At the moment at least things seem to be ok. The TTS drumkit problem is something I can live with.

SOURCE: sonar 4 and midi sound cuts offat start of playback

If you are recording from bar 1 at time 1.00 you might want to start recording one or two bars later. So try starting your song on bar three istead of bar 1

I'm in the studio using LogicPro with my MO8 -


In General MIDI, the grand piano is defaulted to MIDI channel 1.

IF you have a device that responds to "General MIDI" format, just send the MIDI data to channel one and you should be fine. Remember that pianos are VELOCITY controlled and usually don't use after touch so you have to generate appropriate velocity for EACH note if you are using an editor.

Stuttering during audio playback in Sonar


The stuttering is caused by excessive CPU usage, in other words: you have too little CPU power to play the file with the inserted synth smoothly. You could try inserting a different synth or play with the rendering-options of the synth (like disabling aliasing, etc.) or increase the audio buffer size (under audio options ?), but the only longterm solution is upgrading to a much faster computer.

Even when you find some tweak which lets you play the file (just) smoothly, adding another effect or synth is likely to cause it to stutter again, since your computer doesn't meet the official (!) minimal requirements for running Cakewalk Sonar 6, which is at least a Pentium 4 1.3GHz computer (and you have a 1.0GHz computer).

I would recommend upgrading your computer to something which at least meets the "recommend requirements" of Cakewalk Sonar 6, which is a Pentium 4 2.8GHz or newer (like any Intel Core 2 system), when you're serious about composing music.

Midi vs. Sound


Think of MIDI like the old time player pianos where you put a roll into it and the punches on the paper roll told the piano what notes to play. MIDI is a way for computers and musical instruments to communicate what is being played. When you plug your keyboard into your computer and enable it in Cakewalk, then Cakewalk records what notes you are playing on your keyboard (makes a piano roll file). Then when you tell Cakewalk to play this file back it communicates to your keyboard and says play these notes just like a person was sitting there playing these notes. The distinction here is you are recording and playing back your performance (which keys you pressed, how hard you struck the keys, how long you held the keys for sustain, etc...). No sound is actually being recorded, just the PERFORMANCE. When you play it back, the keyboard regenerates the sounds on the fly just as if you were actually sitting there performing the music again. Same thing applies to other MIDI enabled instruments (drums, guitar, saxaphone, etc...). This opens up all kinds of possibilities, you can redirect the recorded MIDI file to a completely different sound or instrument. Example... you record MIDI of you playing piano song, then you have Cakewalk play this MIDI back to your keyboard but you change the sound on your keyboard to guitar, it will play the same song, but now you will hear guitar instead of piano. Get it?

Drums for MIDI track to not work


I haven't ever used this program but it sounds like you have your MIDI channel assigned to the wrong number. The default MIDI channel for drums is channel 10. Assign the track you are trying to play drums from to channel 10 in your program.

Recording on my Yamaha CP33 keyboard using USB


We're talking about audio recording. If so you must conntect your piano by using the L + R outputs with your sound card or mixer line inputs (that's how I do this). USB is ok if you want to use your piano as a master keyboard (MIDI). Another important thing is that you must have an additional application installed called sequencer ( for example Cubase Sx, Sonar...) which will let you store your digital music. I'm not talking about the proper settings of them because it could take a day or so...:)
Overall, you will have to learn a bit about the home studio, home recording techniques. There are tons of informations on web. A great thing is that you can use your CP33 as a master keyboard to control additional virtual instruments (VST) or for example play different piano samples (check Synthogy Ivory). Possibilites are endless!
