Hey Omar, or anyone using hardware synths.  I am going to upgrade my studio, 
and wanted to know how the Roland xr and motif rack interact with sonar.  How 
accessible are they? what can I do and what can I not do. Are they synths or 
samplers? the reason I ask is that isn't a synth a synth  so a soft synth is 
going to sound just as good as a hardware synth? My understanding is that a 
sampler would sound better then either. And generally a soft synth will sound 
better then a hardware synth since you have more processing power and ram in 
the computer.  Am I totally off here? thanks in advance

  Hi All:

  To any Fantom x/xr users on the list; when using the Fantom with Sonar (with 
sonar as the sequencer,) did you guys have to put the Fantom into "slave mode?" 
Second, I'm preparing to install the instrument definition files for the Fantom 
x in Sonar. I was previously using the Motif es. Do I need to remove the 
motif's ins def files prior to installing the fantom's? If so, how do I do that?

  Thanks for any help in advance.
