Cakewalk Sonar VST Configuration

 


SONAR automatically scans your VST folders for new plug-ins on startup, registering any unscanned VST plug-ins so that they become available in SONAR's plug-in menus. You can turn off automatic scanning by using the Options-Global command, and unchecking the Scan For VST Plug-ins On Startup checkbox that is on the VST Plug-ins tab.

To configure your VST plug-ins manually, use either the VST Plug-ins tab of the Global Options dialog, or the Cakewalk Plug-in Manager. You can use the Global Options dialog to set general VST options, such as choosing which folders to scan, but not specific options on individual plug-ins. Use the VST button on a plug-in's property page, or the Cakewalk Plug-in Manager to set options on individual plug-ins (use the Tools-Cakewalk Plug-in Manager command to open the Plug-in Manager). The following procedures explain how to use the VST Plug-ins tab of the Global Options dialog. The Cakewalk Plug-in Manager has its own help.

 

To Display the Global Options Dialog/VST Plug-ins Tab

  • Use the Options-Global command to open the Global Options dialog, and click the VST Plug-ins tab.

To Add a Folder to Scan

  1. On the Global Options dialog/VST Plug-ins tab, click the Add button to open the Browse for Folder dialog.

  2. Choose the folder you want to add, and click OK.

  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to add any additional folders you might want to scan.

The new folders appear in the VST Scan Folder(s) list, along with any folders that were already in the list.

 

To Remove a Folder from the VST Scan Folder(s) List

  • On the Global Options dialog/VST Plug-ins tab, in the VST Scan Folder(s) list, select the folder you want to remove, and click the Remove button.

To Set Options for All Plug-ins in a Folder

  1. On the Global Options dialog/VST Plug-ins tab, in the VST Scan Folder(s) list, select the folder you want to set options for, then click the Folder Defaults button.

  2. In the dialog that appears, choose from the following options (options that control properties for individual plug-ins are greyed-out: use the Cakewalk Plug-in Manager, or the VST button on the plug-in's property page to set those options):

    • Enable as plug-in--enable this option if you want to use the plug-ins in this folder as audio effects.

    • Configure as tempo-based effect--if the effects in this folder are supposed to respond to tempo information (for example, a tempo-synced delay), and they are not responding, make sure this box is checked.

    • Force stereo operation--if you need to use mono plug-ins in situations that requires stereo, you can enable this option to run the plug-ins in stereo mode. This option simply creates two identical output streams from the plug-ins where only one existed.

    • Do not intercept NRPNs--SONAR uses NRPNs to run automation of your VST plug-ins. However, some instruments have their own implementation of this process, so checking this box passes the NRPNs directly to the instrument, allowing it to manage its own automation.

    • Enable Delay Compensation--usually, you will leave this checkbox the way you found it. SONAR contains a delay compensator, which turns on and off automatically for each individual plug-in (only a few plug-ins need it). If your plug-in needs extra time to process the audio data, the plug-in sends a message to SONAR, so it can synchronize playback time to the delayed output from the plug-in.

    • Enable Mono Processing--allows VST plug-ins to process in mono instead of the default behavior, which sums the stereo output of VST plug-ins. Note: enabling this could affect the sound of projects created in SONAR 6.0 or earlier versions of SONAR.

    • Translate Bank/Program Changes--this option allows VSTi's to receive band/program change messages. When unchecked, program or bank change MIDI messages are passed to the VSTi; previously these messages were intercepted and translated into a VST preset number.

  3. Click OK to close the dialog.

To Turn Automatic Scanning On or Off

  • On the Global Options dialog/VST Plug-ins tab, in the VST Scan Options section, check or uncheck the Scan For VST Options On Startup option. The next time you launch SONAR, your VST folders will either be scanned or not, depending on the option you chose.

To Re-scan Failed Plug-ins

  • On the Global Options dialog/VST Plug-ins tab, in the VST Scan Options section, enable the Re-scan Failed Plug-ins option. The next time you scan, any plug-ins that did not scan correctly during previous scans will be re-scanned.

To Re-scan Existing Plug-ins

  • On the Global Options dialog/VST Plug-ins tab, in the VST Scan Options section, enable the Re-scan Existing Plug-ins option. The next time you scan, any plug-ins that have already been scanned will be re-scanned, and any new folder default options you have chosen will be implemented.

To Run a Scan

  • On the Global Options dialog/VST Plug-ins tab, in the VST Scan section, click the Scan VST Folders button.

To Set All VST Plug-ins to Folder Defaults

  • On the Global Options dialog/VST Plug-ins tab, in the VST Scan section, click the Reset All VST Plug-ins button. The next time you scan, SONAR will set all plug-ins in your VST Scan folders to your folder default settings.
