BlankYes, that's correct; 44.1 and 24-bit.

  Phil replied: I wouldn't say that it's a problem.  Having said that, I would 
have thought that it's possible that replacing your current sound card with 
something else such as a MOTU may help although, I kind of question that a bit, 
as your only using the line ins on that card.  I am assuming that your 
recording at 44.1, 24 bit?  Sean, Tim, anyone.  Any thoughts?

      I wouldn't have thought so.  They are nice mixers and the sound that you 
track with, should have a bit of warmth to it, as your using an analog mixer.

        I have an alan and heath mix wizard 3, which has gotten pretty high 
reviews. I'm just wondering though if you actually lose a bit of quality when 
converting midi of an external synth to audio, as opposed to when just bouncing 
or freezing a vst synth?

          Yes.  Mind you, I don't know which mixer you have so, can't comment 
on whether it has excellent pree-amps or, not.

            Phil, when you say pre amps, do you mean external ones besides the 
actual ones within the mixer that I am using?

            Thanks.

              Hmm, maybe as your keeping all of your software synthes/samples 
internal to Sonar.  On the other hand, if you had some really hi end pree-amps 
that you could use with your hardware then, you would find that your hardware 
would sound fatter and have more detail too!

                Hello,

                I notice when I use vsts, or samples via the sfz in sonar, I 
actually get fatter, warmer, and louder recordings than when using tracks from 
an external synth like the motif. Is this generally the case, or am I imagining 
things here.
