Sonar 6 Producer - palyback quality issue

I am an absolute newbie. After doing a simple stereo recording to a singl track, I get a clicking sound on playback along with the recorded material. This click is not in the wav file that is saved in the audio folder, just when played back in Sonar.
Any ideas??

I had this problem today whilst installing Sonar on my new laptop. It wasn't the click track. It was the playback glitching, clicking and rattling. I put the buffer size to maximium but it was still happening.

I got round it by downloading the latest version of ASIO4all (2.9 beta4) and installing it. I then opened Sonar 6, options, audio, advanced, then selecting ASIO in the driver mode drop down box. Then I closed Sonar and reopened it.

If you use one device for recording and playback it should work now but if like me you use seperate devices or if it doesn't work click, options, audio, general, ASIO panel, advanced options. Here you can select your inputs and outputs. Play around a bit here. Mine worked when the output of the playback device was selected and both the input and output of the recording device was selected.

ASIO4all sorted out my latency issues as well.

Hope it helped.

Thats just a 'click-track'
(normally usable to play in sync)

i'm no sonar user,
but search for an opion that says 'click-track' or 'click' or'midi-click'
and switch that one off

What you`re hearing is the metronome. If you go to the program settings (I think under Global) you can select whether the metronome plays during and/or playback. Also if you select view - toolbars and choose the large play control bar there are two icons included which allow you to stop or start the metronome. While in the tool bars section you can also select the metronome toolbar .

YES!

You are recording the metronome! You have to shut that off. You can find it in the "projects" area.. (kinda forget now). but if u dont see it- just go to the help files, and look up metronome- and they'll tell you where you can find the controls for it.

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

Timing after recording. and midi composing


May I suggest you try to adjust your audio settings inside Sonar. Also it is a good idea to always keep your C drive well defragmented. I once had this problem using Sonar LE and the only way I got rid of it was after formatting my C drive and reinstalling the drivers and Sonar again. After that the problem came back and then I upgraded from the SB Live to Audigy SE.
Make sure you also have lots of free space on your C drive and have a decnt amount of ram.

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!

When recording live feed from various guitars I can't get the recordings to synchrinize


Sounds like you have a latency problem. This can be for a variety of reasons, something Cakewalk admits. The reason for that could be everything from processor limitations, not enough RAM, your soundcard, or simply that you need to change the latency configuration in the audio settings menu of the program. Considering that that is the cheapest fix, try changing settings first. Be sure to follor the help information in Cakewalk - they can be a little confusing for Cakewalk (I have no idea why they can't seem to explain their programs after all these years) but you will be able to figure out what settings are right for you.

My guess is that when you record, you are listening to the previously recorded track, and playing to it. Then when you play it all back as a mix, they are not in sync as when you were recording them.

If that is not the problem, plesae explain further. You are able to monitor your previously recorded tracks, right? Not just playing each track "blind" and trying to have them match? Hope not. That is rarely possible - if at all.

If you are monitoring your prerecorded tracks while recording on top of them and it sounds different when you play it back, it's definitely latency.
