Records at the highest bit-rate you can (320 is the best for CD audio), keep the gain at a medium setting (too high creates clipping, too low will drive you crazy with volume), and try to set at minimum dual channel (stereo). You may have pre-set options for this, most are dependant on what you want to output.

If size-of-file is an issue, simply decrease the bitrate, but leave all the other settings the same!

Hope this helps!

On sonar home studio 6 xl. If i play something i hear only 3 seconds music and than it stops. What can i do?


This sounds like the software still thinks it isn't registered to you.

Do you have a registration button in the program interface?

If you have already registered the program or registration isn't required, try loading Sonar on another box and see if it's just a compability problem with your hardware.

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.

When ever i record there's a constant crackling/hissing in the recording. is this cuz of my sound card?


First are you using onboard sound or an added soundcard? If using onboard then the problem is most likely caused by outdated drivers or underpowered onboard sound. Try checking the software to see if it has any audio cleanup options as using them may help. Hope this helps.

Me and some buddies record with sonar home studio 6 and i bought a new pc custom built for recording well our computers on tha same day and time started having problems with sonar popping and glitching...


Sounds like what is called a latency problem. You need to go into the settings in Sonar and under audio, adjust the Latency to a higher number...I don't know sonar home studio, or I would tell you the exact area to go in the menu's to adjust latency..Hope this helps!
