Question about Edirol UA-25 External Sound System

Open Question

Sound and Recording doesn't work on Sonar Le

I have Edirol UA-25, installed on a Microsoft XP desktop computer. I have installed the Sonar Le program that came with the Edirol, have done everything in the manual setup, tested the sound (via headphones plugged into the Edirol) and all computer sounds (Edirol sample music, itunes etc) works through the headphones... apart from the sonar le itself. I cannot hear any of the Sonar Le software samples such as Latin, and have tried to change all the volume settings- nothing has worked. I am also unable to record, no detection comes up on the Sonar Le screen even though i have done all it says to- pressed record, set up the inputs/outputs etc- and obviously i can't play anything back. please help.

SOURCE: SONAR LE NO AUDIO

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?

SOURCE: SONAR LE NO AUDIO

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.

Do not get MIDI signal via EDIROL UA25




Midi is data only, there is no actual sound to the midi tracks themselves. They need to be assigned to either a software synth or an external synth to actually make the sounds you want to hear.

For instance if you load a demo of a midi sequance you will need to add a software synth such as the TTS-1 or Roland sound canvas which are general midi compatable and will play the instruments sounds assigned to the demo's midi channels. Use the Synth Rack feature in Sonar to open one of them. Then you will need to assign the output of each of the midi tracks to that particular synth and you will get sound. Make sure to assing the synth's audio track to you UA-25 as its audio output.

I would suggest reading in the manual and following the tutorials included in the manual to get yourself familier with how this is all done. spacer.gif

Cakewalk Sonar - Edirol UA-1000 crackles on playback!


That's a latency issue it sounds like.
There's a slider under "Audio" .

Move it in increments towards "slow", test it as you go.
Leave it at the highest setting possible that doesn't crackle.

I've heard this so bad that it sounds like a gun going off.
It scares the Hell out of you when it happens !

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.

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.
