I was wondering...Is there an easier way to convert gigastudio / midi to waves, other than the recorder in the Giga application? I use Sonar 2.2, and it would really be helpful if I could convert numerous string parts to wave using something like the \"bounce to track\" command, without having to record the long way...recording each part one at a time, and have to listen to the whole thing.)
You may have to run external cables-I have motou mk II, and that\'s what I ended up doing-if you search-there was a discussion last summer on this-some guys have an audio card that will do it internally-some route it differently-but there is no simple command in Giga-unless Sonar 3 has some new tricks-
Giga IMHO has a better sound engine than Sonar..Capture it in Giga then inport it into Sonar on a new Audio track. I do this all the time. Make sure you have a decnet sound card with plenty of inoputs and outputs. I use the Echo Layla24.
Once you have all of the Audio tracks ready to be exported, export them to a directory and then consider using a program like Samplitude Professional to really dress up the audio tracks for a final mix.
Thanks for the help everyone! I\'ll be sure to try all of the above.
Do you think Sonar 3\'s audio engine will be better? I wish I had enough cash to try out the Samplitude Professional. I\'m still a poor student, and alas cannot afford to. But I do have a good audio card at least =)
Have to agree with Alan. I\'ve never been impressed by Sonar\'s audio. I always use Giga\'s capture, then transfer the wav files to Vegas 4 for mixing. Sonic Foundry\'s products have just about the best audio engine out there.
Well this makes logical sense, since when you capture you go straight to disk. There\'s no routing through other stuff and no digital to analog to digital conversion.
If you record it in Sonar as any other audio, you\'re recording an analog source. Obviously there\'s some added noise there, which may be entirely due to your hardware, not Sonar.
