Sonar help please - possible to combine mono sources to single track?
#944292 - 30/09/11 03:27 PM
I am not sure if this is the right place, but, I'm currently demoing Sonar
x1 and was hoping for some help.
If for example, I have tracked a guitar (cab)
using two mics, is there any way to combine these into a single track inside sonar without
routing to a bus (as far as I can tell buses in Sonar exist in a separate section away
from the tracks)? I usually record without a mixer (i.e. straight into interface) so I am
looking to replicate what that would have achieved.
An example would be, I
think in Logic (although I've never used it) you can simply create another channel and bus
to that (I guess you could then hide the original) and keep 'tracks' separate from
I know I could simply send them to a bus, but I'd imagine track
management would/could then become an issue. As far as I can tell you cannot colour Sonar
console channels either, which could have helped if busing is the only way to achieve this
I have not delved into the murky world of track folders yet, but
if you could apply FX to a track folder that would also achieve the same thing.
Any advice, wisdom or otherwise would be very welcome.

I don't know if this helps but the only DAW software that I have come across that allows a
mono (one side) source to very simply be recorded as two track mono is the variations on
Samplitude including the free download Sampltude Silver.
In "Track Properties"
you have the very simple "Mono, Stereo, Mono mix". Don't get simpler than that!
