Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

For Taran_2005. Ok. Thanks.(About the sound card.) Next: I am about to install Sonar 8 studio version. I now know I need a sound card with midi files in order to play back on Sonar 8. (I have some leads on that.) Here is what I do and what I expect of Sonar 8. Please comment if I'm in the right ball park. (New to this type of composing, i.e. software synthesizer and plugins, but understand better now.) I input an orchestral scroe into my Finale program, note by note. (No external midi equipment) I print it out. Next I intend to input this score instrument by instrument into the Sonar 8 program and play back. The point is, of course, to hear back, but also to compare instruments, such as a flute woud be better than a clarenet in this spot, etc. re-input and listen again. In order to listen back I need a midi sound card, which I will buy.(Nobody told me that until recently. You,also, indicate the same.) But, in general, is all I speak of above correct and possible? I hope I did the correct thing in buying Sonar 8. I've been at this for days. Somewhere along the line, somebody kept asking me if I intend to input with live instruments. No! But I got the impression that's the point of Sonar 8??? I'll ask questions about plugins later, once I get going. Burt

    Ok. Thanks for the answer. I just discovered I DON'T need a midi sound card. My XP Realtek Ac'97 should be adequate...or, at least, experiment with that first, I was told. The step I didn't know about has nothing to do with Sonar or Sound card! In my Finale program I have to click on export midi files! Ok. I'll take it from there. Thanks again. If I have questions, I'll ask.

Yes - that is the purpose of Sonar 8, to be able to listen to the score and replace/swap instruments at will.

You are on the right track.

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.

Sonar LE: no playback b/c "NO MIDI OUTPUT" selected


You have to go in to the Sonar configuration and select what the default MIDI and WAV input and output devices are. That is usually handled by the ASIO driver. In your case you would select the USB mic for input, and for output you need to select your sound card. For midi you need to configure the midi controllers and the software synth or soft instrument you are using.
If you need any more detailed help I need to know what version of Sonar LE it is and what sound card. I am guessing it detected the mic and just needs the output device configured as I mentioned.

No midi sound


In sonar go to the options menu and select: Audio -->advance. and from the list select the "Asio" driver, then you'll have a new midi output (synthe sw...) select it to have a sound while playing MIDI files.

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!

Problem with stability


Celeron CPU's will struggle with making music and limit what you can do with audio. Celerons are ok to play music but nor really for making music. Firewire is a better option for making music as it's really fast unlike USB. An option would be to get a faster CPU and try the soundcard again. But i would not use USB audio and would use an Audiophile 2496 soundcard as they are really cheap. Also midi is data and not audio, midi just works virtual instruments and is able to control keyboards through midi out. But first try a better CPU as a celeron isant that good for makign music. I know becouse i've been there done that and go really upset with the same problems your having at the moment. I played the midi files on cuabse and recorded it onto an audio chanel.
