Topic: Can't hear output from Kontakt 4 VSTI in sonar 8.5 64 bit

  1. #1

    Question Can't hear output from Kontakt 4 VSTI in sonar 8.5 64 bit

    System: win 7 ultimate 64 bit
    I3 cpu
    8 Bg Ram
    SB PCE Titanium Sound card
    Sonar Prod 8.5 64 and 32 bit
    Kontakt 4 .4 player
    Abbey Road Modern Drums

    The plugin loads, I drag the midi drum track to the midi track of kontakt i hit play and
    I see the volume meter moving but hear no audio, Midi

    Very new to both sonar and kontakt
    What am I doing wrong?

    PS: Why won't EZdrummer play in sonar, I bought JBridge today and tried it
    but still get no output from the plug in?

    I haven't used Sonar for awhile, but in Pro Tools you won't hear anything on a midi track because midi data has no sound. You need to route it through a bus (aux) track to an audio track and record the sound onto that track. If you haven't done it before, it's not as complicated as it might sound. The midi data tells the instrument or sample you're playing through, which is in Kontakt, what to play (on the drum kit or instrument you have selected) then you record that onto an audio track which DOES contain actual audio that you can hear. You set the out put on the midi and/or instrument track to the bus or auxiliary track you choose, and the input on the audio track to the same bus or aux track, record enable the audio track and record the instrument playing the midi file onto the track, and then it plays back like any audio track you've recorded live.

    Hope this helps!
