Cakewalk has it's own control panel to select output buses. Consult the software manual. Also make sure you have the correct ASIO (Audio Stream IN OUT) driver for your sound card. You can most likely find this at www.soundblaster.com -Keep in mind that sound blasters were not made for pro audio applications. Consider investing in a better sound card if you really want to take your music to the next level. Good luck!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sonar 6 Producer - palyback quality issue


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.

Hi need sound


Certain early models of the Sound Blaster cannot do both MIDI input and wave (audio) output at the same time. Thus, if you've selected "Creative Labs" as a MIDI In device in Cakewalk’s Options | MIDI Devices dialog, wave audio output won't work. Note that MIDI output will work fine along with wave audio output: you can select Creative Labs from the list of MIDI Out devices. The problem occurs only when you've selected the Creative Labs MIDI In device.

Hope that helps!
