I have Etch working with MIDI input in Sonar X1 Producer. I configured Etch as a synth via the plugin properties page, and as Vespesian says:
nsert into fx bin, insert midi track, choose etch as the out
However, I have 4 MIDI tracks setup: Channel 1 = LFOs - Channel 2 = Pitch - Channel 3 = Filter 1 CutOff and Channel 4 = Filter 2 CutOff. Etch will
respond to data received from these channels in Sonar but you must choose the relevant MIDI channel inside your controller
to jam out and record the parts.
The problem I'm experiencing in Sonar is similar to the one highlighted by Vespesian, and that is: The audio drivers freak and Sonar crashes at any attempt to place a sidechain signal through Etch. Any suggestions for a work around? Or, if there's something being overlooked I'd appreciate a nod.
Wipe the dust from the mirror of your mind.
