I`ve met with this problem before in another version of Sonar.
I think you must have been playing around with your audio settings. If you go into the audio settings, one of the tabs on top will open up the drivers selected window. Make sure you have your soundcard driver whether Asio, MME or WDM selected in the palyback and recording timing. Myself I use Asio4all drivers which are freely available on the net.
Initially when I chose asio I could use midi but no audio so I was using MME, but that has too much latency. Eventually I used WDM, but nowadays I use the Asio4 all drivers.
Please remember to exit Sonar and restart after any changes. You might need to do the same again for eith the record or playback timing masters as I don`t think you can change them at the same time. In any case, once you change one and restart the program, youcan then select the corresponding one and restart again. After that you shoudl be fine.
Good luck!

Look in your MIDI instruments and make sure the icon for you to play back is lit.

Thing is that im recording a song. After recording when i try to play it, it doesnt give any sound. Im positive that it records fine. Any solutions?


This is totally dependent on the software you are using to record.

Not knowing what you are using makes any response a wild guess.

IN GENERAL you must configure both the input and output device within the recording software you are using.

I use Sonar and one has to select the audio input and output device and tell the program which device is used for timing.

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.

Me and some buddies record with sonar home studio 6 and i bought a new pc custom built for recording well our computers on tha same day and time started having problems with sonar popping and glitching...


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!

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!

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.

Playback difficulties


Not specific enough but I would run a head cleaner thru it for 10 seconds and see if that improves things and always use the same brand of tape to prevent gum issues.
