I know this has been discussed in length and to the point it is ad nauseam. I just don't understand when something doesn't work like it usually does in other projects. I am just messing around with an old midi file of a standard piece and the sliders for each channel of the ARIA player that I am using will NOT stay put. I have checked for CC#7, I have checked the automation tracks and removed any volume assignments in Sonar there but for the life of me I can't stop the sliders from resetting to where they want to be (usually about halfway) even after I move them to other places or full off. I am sure something is buried in the midi file but I am at a loss as to where it would be.
Any suggestions from anyone? No big deal, I can just put a CC#7 at the beginning of each track and set the sliders to where I want. It is just maddening not to find out why those sliders seem to have a mind of their own.
