Thinking about the way I work with my studio setup and how I may not be getting the best results.
Oldish PC with Sonar 8.0 and myriad VSTi's and effects;
I create a MIDI file with say 8 tracks
Tidy up the mix so it's how I want it
Export the whole mix as a two track stereo .wav file
Looking back at other posts it looks like some people create an audio track for each midi track and apply any effects / mixing then master that to a final two track .wav
My PC just can't handle running multiple audio tracks with or without effects but I may have a solution. I have a Roland VS2400CD and thought I might press this into service. It's normally used for live recording, voice and instruments.
My though was to sync this to Sonar and record each audio track one at a time with effects added. Once I have all the audio tracks recorded on the external DAW I could then mix to my hearts content and master on this or send a two track master back to the PC for any final tweaking.
How does that sound? How would you do it?
