I know this is a very beginner question but I just haven't been able to find the answer anywhere. I'm using Sonar Cakewalk to mix and Riffworks to make drum tracks. The problem is that I don't understand how to get what's playing on Riffworks onto a track on Sonar. So far I've only been able to get my Line 6 UX2 to record. Please help.
Set up the whole structure of your song in riffworks, fully arranged. Just drums. Then click Mix or whatever it is.. so that it mixes to a file. Then you just import that file into its own audio track in sonar.
What he said ^^^. Some hosts like Ableton Live can connect with Riffowkrs via ReWire. You could then just bus it into a track in LIve. Not sure if Sonar has Rewire, but that would be another way. Riffworks is kick ass tho, great for just ****in round and writing some tunes. Has anyone tried out the iphone/ipod app? Am very curious....
