I am getting ready to input music that I am working on for a new project. I want to play the parts into Sonar X1 using my AKAI EWI USB. I haven't tried the EWI after I changed my ARIA engine to 1.5. I decided to go back to ARIA 1.128 because of the lack of keyswitches in Finale.
That is the history, now the problem. When I loaded the ARIA EWI player to check the configuration file, I found that the config file just showed me a blank rectangle and no information. (This did also happen when I tried it with ARIA 1.5 installed but I just was using the EWI ARIA). I reinstalled ARIA 1.128 and the same problem occurred. I also decided to ignore the problem and tried loading up Sonar XI Extended to start the project. When I loaded an instrument from GPO into ARIA and played the EWI, I got the instrument I wanted but I also got the sound of a piano playing along with the instrument (in this case I had loaded a String Bass section). This should not happen. I checked the input and output of the Track in question and they were set to Input - EWI-USB and the output to ARIA. Then I tried to set the channels for each ARIA track to different output tracks (1/2 3/4 5/6 7/8 etc.) and when I clicked on 3/4 for the assignment in ARIA it showed 5/6, when I clicked back on 1/2 it came up 3/4.
Does anyone know what is happening? Any help would be appreciated. The project is not due for a couple of months but I would like to get it started.
(sorry for such a long post in the general section but I thought it would get noticed here more quickly than in the technical section.)
