1) if you are using the PC sound card to record this is where your hiss is coming from. you need to get a recording card that has low noise or some other recording USB input device to get CD quality recordings

OR

2) if you have to use your PC sound card check your PC volume level for line in, don't let it get high or it will distort. you will have to experiment with the MD4 levels and PC sound card level to find a good middle ground with low hiss and no distortion
and a singer that sings away from the mic to reduce distortion.


hope this helps
thanks for your rating

How download this program on mac Os


Download is different from Install. It does not look like you can purchase and download Cakewalk SONAR 7 Producer directly from Cakewalk. However, to install on a Mac, you either need BootCamp, or a virtual machine (VM) solution such as VMWare, Parallels, or VirtualBox, and a valid Windows 7 or 8 install.

I have cakewalk music creator 2002 and sonar, they won't install on my new computer Vista 64bit. My question is, do i need to repurchase these products or is there a quick fix. Thank You. Jack


call cakewalk, their product might not be compatible with 64bit OS. They might offer a patch or workaround. And you could also try running as admin in compatibility mode.

I downloaded a sonar cakewalk program to my computer but there is no sound. How do i fix this?


First check your speakers with any media player. If this sounds OK then keep the volume level up/same sothat you can hear any sound from speaker. Now Check the input & output devices in sonar (Select the appropriate device). Put any audio file in a track in Sonar & check...

If you are not a regular user of Sonar then it is better to switch to another DAW which are better (at least in my openion) before you are used to Sonar.
I'd suggest "Nuendo" of Steinberg, it is highly professional, far better & far more user friendly than Sonar. I've used both...

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.
