  1. Ok with non-TI firewire issues. But other people in the older Cakewalk forums have described the same problem using usb and other brands of audio interfaces.
  2. Thanks Jim (Roseberry). Right, when I reset the buffer size through the ASIO panel, the distortion goes away every time. Still don't know what is causing the problem. I believe the ASIO panel window is actually my sound interface (MOTU Traveller) configuration window launched from within SONAR. So the problem could still be in SONAR which might be receiving new data from the interface and resetting itself. But the problem may still be with the interface's settings , or even Windows 7. I heard in a previous SONAR thread that there were difficulties with the audio paths in Windows 7 that could potentially cause audio problems like this one. Seems like the next step would be to narrow the problem down to one of these areas.
  3. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try this and reply again with the result.
  4. I don't know. It's built into my Dell Studio laptop which identifies the firewire as: IEEE 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller.
  5. Hoping someone in this forum recognizes this problem and can help me with more info. The issue is that when working with SONAR, at seemingly random times, the audio output becomes distorted. The only remedy is to close and restart SONAR. Once in a blue moon, if I continue using SONAR while the output is distorted, it will pop out of the distortion and recover itself. There have been other SONAR users in the past couple of years in other forums that have described the same behavior and have called it "frying bacon" sound or "hissing distortion sound. But as far as I know, no one has identified the cause of the problem or offered a solution. I am running the latest version of SONAR 64-bit mode, on WIndows 7 64-bit. My audio interface is a MOTU Traveller using firewire. I'm using ASIO, and as far as I know am not setting any unusual parameters for I/O buffers or other relevant objects. Other than the random distortion, I am not experiencing any other audio problems. I believe my computer is powerful enough - I am able to record dozens of tracks, each with multiple effects, and not experience any other drop-outs or clicking sounds.
