My last recording progam I never had this problem. I switched to cakewalk sonar 7. I'm getting dropouts after like 30 seconds of recording or playback. I've tried the buffer level on every setting. I have no idea what to do with it now. I'm not a pro so I don't know a load about it. I'm using a guitarport btw. Do I need a better sound card to run sonar 7? And if so which one?
