Tom, et al,

I have just finished setting up a Sonar 5 template file which contains five DXi instances of JABB. Other than somewhat slow load times, everything seems fine (since you had me uncheck "Zero all controllers"!).

This weekend, I downloaded and opened your incredible Gary Lindsay song Sonar 5 demo file. I noted that you used four VST instances. The demo played flawlessly without me having to do anything more than hit the spacebar!

Since you ARE the JABB, should I be re-thinking my set-up? Is there an advantage of using JABB as VST rather than DXi? As you know, Sonar supports both.

My basic system is a P4 - 2.4 GHz, 2 Gb Ram, Dakota audio card. I also run GigaStudio 3 via ReWire.

Thanks so much for any advice,

Frank

I always choose the VSTi because it avoids the infamous DXi tempo bug in Sonar (stuck notes when tempo change data is present.)
