    Configuring Giga & Sonar ports on the Aardvark DP 24/96

    I had tossed Gigastudio in a dusty drawer as it kept crashing in Win 2K, but on a whim I tried installing it again now that I\'m on XP and it seems to be much smoother sailing in terms of drivers.

    However, configuring the PORTS in Gigastudio and Sonar for the Aardvark Direct Pro 24/96 is a little befuddling. If I want to hear MIDI files in Sonar using Gigastudio samples, how should I set it up?

    Most confusing. But there is indeed light at the end of the tunnel.

    Also, any suggestions re my hardware?

    Here\'s my rig:
    Athlon XP 2500+
    768 MB PC2700 SDRAM
    80 GB Seagate Barracuda IV ATA 133 7200 RPM
    80 GB Maxtor Diamondplus 9 ATA 100 7200 RPM
    AOPen AK79D-400VN NForce 2 Motherboard
    NVidia 5200 AGP video card, 128 MB SDRAM
    Onboard sound NForce Audio (disabled)
    MPU-401 Comapitble MIDI Device
    Aardvark 24/96
    Pioneer DVD R/W drive slave 1
    Windows XP Pro
    Sonar Producer 3
    Settings - Aardvark 24/96 (Virtual patch bay window)
    \"Monitor L,R Output\" patched to \"Analog 1,2 Out \" \"Analog 3,4 Out\" and \"Analog 5,6/Headphones Out\"

    Other available options: \"patching\" to Analogue Outs from \"Application Playbacks 1,2 or 3,4 or 5,6\" or directly from the breakout box (\"Analogs In 1&2 or 3 &4\")

    Settings - Sonar Producer 3
    MIDI ins and outs set to \"Direct Pro 24/96\"

    Settings - Gigastudio 160 v2.50.48
    Sequencer: Sonar, Priority 1
    Sampler Master Attenuation -- 0 dB
    Dither Type -- not enabled
    Buffer -- 1 MB
    Audio Capture Depth 24 bits

    Gigastudio Hardware Routing: Out to Direct Pro
    Sample rate 44.1 kHz, Bit Depth 32 Bit
    MIDI in ports: Direct Pro 24/96
    Out ports -- tried 1,2 and/or 3/4 and/or 5,6

    So far not a peep (loaded the Nemesys megapiano). Cannot activate gigastudio\'s virtual keys with my mouse or generate sound by playing MIDI files in Sonar.

    Help will bring much positive karma your way.


    Oh yeah, the Direct Pro\'s going out to an Alesis RA 150 amp and Monitor 1 Mk2 passive monitors. Audio\'s fine. Have even managed to get MIDI output through Halion on an experiment. But since I blew so much cash on GS, I want to be able to use it!

    I also am running Gigastudio with SONAR and the Direct Pro 24/96.

    Maybe I don\'t understand the configuration, but you want your SONAR MIDI outputs to be the Gigastudio ports, not the the Direct Pro. That would be if you were communicating with an external MIDI device.

    Hope that helps,
