    GPO tutorial for Sonar

    I downloaded the Sonar GPO tutorial from the Garritan homepage but it seems to be out-of - date. I am using Sonar 5 (about to install Sonar 7).As an example, I did not find the GPO-Tutorial.
    Is there any tutorial available for these new Sonar versions please.

    The tutorial should basically work the same with the exception that starting in Sonar 5 it will automatically find VST plugins on startup. Make sure you have a common folder you put your plugins in. There is a folder under Sonar for this: C:\Program Files\Cakewalk\VST Plugins

    One other difference is the synth rack. From the View menu, select the synth rack. In the synth rack you click on the add button to insert a new plugin. After you select your plugin you will get an option on how many audio tracks to be created and if you want it to create a MIDI track. Each plugin needs at least one audio track for the output of the VST plugin and at least one MIDI track with it's output point to the VST plugin.

    For the record, you're right about the tutorial page needing some updating.

    Thank you for your responses. I am about to use Sonar 7 for the first time and with it I received a very comprehensive guide book so hopefully I will be ok now

    The tutorial certainly is out-of-date.

    Does anyone want to help update it with new screenshots using Sonar 7 and the latest GPO (or JABB).

    TIA

    If no one else wants to, I'll be able to help out on it in about two weeks. S7 Producer here with GPO, CoMB and Strad. No JABB or Gofriller (yet).

    Wow! Thanks Reegs!

    No rush and two weeks is fine (just don't let it interfere with the holiday parties!)

    Thanks again,

    Gary
