Question about Edirol UA-25 External Sound System

Open Question

I am using the UA-25 with the Sonar / Cakewalk software that accompanied it at the time of purchase. When I installed everything 3 years ago I was running XP and had a friends help me set up the drivers accordingly. Now I'm running vista and getting an error message when I try to open Sonar. It reads "The following driver(s) either do not support the current audio format, or are in use by another application. Please choose whether you want to disable them or use them anyway." It then lists the Edirol UA-25 as the "following driver" What do I need to do to be able to continue using this equipment and software the way I have in the past?

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: 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.

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.

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.

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 !
