I've been using my GPO in Sonar for just over a week now and am making headway. I hope someone can help me with a MIDI to audio problem. I've read through the manual and followed the instructions there and I've searched forums.
Using Sonar 5 (Producer) I imported a MIDI file created in Finale which I then mixed and balanced using Sonar's Console. I'm using VST instruments (Garritan Personal Orchestra) and when I play the file it sounds fine.
Next I need to save this as an audio (wave) file. I go to the 'File/Export/Audio' and select 'Entire Mix' to save as a 'Broadcast Wave' file. Sonar goes through the 'mix-down' process and everything seems ok, the .wav file is created and saved.
When I play the .wav file, all I have is a .wav file of my original MIDI file; none of my mixing and balancing has been applied. Is this 'normal'?
I have a workaround by playing and recording my mixed file through my external Boss digital studio.
I believe it should be possible to save my MIDI file, complete with the Console mixed settings, as an audio file directly in Sonar. Am I doing something wrong or is it not possible to do this?
Many thanks for any help with this.
