    (Solved) Volume Drop

    In Sonar 8.5 I have one midi trk going to GPO. I load the Strings but the sound is barely audible. I have the trk vol all the way up. I also set the velocity all the way up. Also trk in mixer for Aria Player is up all the way too.

    If the song is playing and I load strings in slot #2 while the song is playing, I can hear the strings fine. But stop the song and start it over and the volume drops back out.

    Any ideas on what I am doing worng? Can someone point me in the right direction?

    I looked around at other posts after I made this post and found Randy had helped Gaynor with another issue. But the info he gave was the solution to my trouble! Thanks Randy!!!

    You need to insert CC1 (Modulation) events in your tracks. CC1 controls volume and timbre. This is the most important controller in GPO. I recommend riding this control thru the whole track to bring the instruments to life. No instrument plays at just one volume.

    It's a good idea to read the manual to understand all of the controllers available to shape the GPO sounds.
