Do you want to save the working file (seq format) or have a wave file all mixed down?

First option File-Save As

Second option - Audio - Merge audio and DXi tracks to stereo wavefile

hey Brian,

how about posting a song that uses session strings to the user showcase so we can hear how good the strings sound?

Are the sounds substantially better witghout tweaking, or do you have to massage the continuos controllers to get superior results?

Brian if it works in PT it has to work in RB, since RB IS PT for all intents and purposes. Open PT and write down the setup features like audio driver, midi driver, and also what synth you are using for basic sound, and then open RB, and set it up exactly the same.

Hi Robh
yes would have thought so ,but its not quite like that ,i have everything set the same ,in Powertracks and RB ,but when i start recording ,in RB what a shocking sound that is when the butons are pressed to hear what i am playing ,or the button to make sure the effect is recording , woe not good ,yet in powertracks ,perfect ,nothing to alter,just press and go ,but i will keep on keeping on with Realband,,best wishes Brian.

Sounds to me like you have the bit rate part set wrong. Both programs need to have the same audio, in fact all the tracks. If you set it wrong and try to play something that is or was recorded at another rate you get NOISE. Have a look at that.

I just realized I said sounds to me.

I'm deaf.

And of course I'm speaking figuratively I don't want you to think I can hear your system. .

Glad you figured it out Brian. You seem to be a guy who communicates well, and I think you'll be a great asset to the forum as you gain expertise with the software.

actually, to me you seem like a very fast learner. I presumed you were a new user because I hadn't seen your name before, and new users tend to appear on the forum after each version release

Sonar is a great program. In fact there are a LOT of great music programs, but I can't afford to upgrade them all. Around version 6, I could see that it wouldn't be long before Real Band could do everything I was doing in Sonar, plus a whole lot of proprietary stuff that Sonar CAN'T do. That's why I'm still at version 6... I decided then that the one music-making software I would upgrade is the PGMusic suite.

With this release of RealBand (2012) RB does all the things that are important to me. So, even though I answered your question indirectly, in a roundabout way I told you what I think of Sonar.
