I am trying to work with the Sesssion drummer that is supplied with the Sonar 7PE software. I believe I am not understanding correctly how to work with it.
My impression is that I can record any midi track and then create a drum track using the Cakewalk TTS1 output.
Working with the book I have used a miditrack and followed the instructions in the book, but can not hear the midi track that I recorded and the drum track.
The midi track is played back over the ES but the drum track does not allow me to use any other driver than the Asio drivers.

Where am I going wrong here?

Thanks in advance guys. As always much appreciated.

Leo

Are you programming a midi track or using templates ? You can also arm the midi track and press R and record your own hand played sequences which depending on what note is sequenced , determines which drum is sounded. Once that is done , the midi track can be converted to audio using the bounce to tracks command. Be sure all three tracks (session drummer) are highlighted (yellow triangles) and then bounce. Otherwise you will get an error message that no audio is selected (the center track of the three) and there will be silence on the bounce.

I don't use session drummer much ( I think it really sucks) but a lot of engineers swear by it.

The things that need to happen is that your midi keyboard will play the SD notes by hand. Another is that the keyboard must play the notes that correspond to the individual instruments in SD. i.e. If the wrong notes are played , SD either doesn't have a drum voice assigned to the key played or the midi octave being played is either too high or low.

Asio drivers only work reliably on firewire and USB normally uses one of the other two options but not Asio. Go to Options > Audio > Advanced > Playback and Recording - Drivermode > WDM/KS or MME(32 bit) and try those options as well. remember to exit and restart Sonar when you change audio drivers.

If none of this crap works.........take 2 aspirin and call back.

(edit) Go to the help menu and type in Tutorials , and I believe there is an excellant offline tutorial on SD. I think the Sonar online website also has some SD tips and tricks as well.

:D

look in to Cakewalk studio instruments

It's only 50 bucks and has a good sounding set of drums for backing use. Easy to use. 3 other excellant instrument groups are included.

I use it during sequencing as an alignment track and sometimes actual tracking. Better still it integrates directly into Sonar , is sold by Sonar for Sonar. You can buy the download direct to yer VST directory in Sonar.

sure worth the price alone for the electric piano IMO.
