    Thanks all for advice [see post below],

    This is where I've got to-
    I've been able to disable the on board sound card but, in sounds and audio
    devices within Control panel there is no mbox. I've reinstalled the
    software a number of times. [ I presume the software relates to protools and
    mbox as
    a sound card.

    I can open protools and it will play audio but no other sound things work,
    like for instance my CD drive. When I open media player I get a message
    back saying there is no audio device.

    I note that a plug in version of VST Instruments and DXi comes with the VSC.
    Does this mean there is no real advantage in me having SONAR as well as
    protools to record midi and audio?

    Anymore help would be appreciated.
    Thanks again

    My original post was:

    I'm trying to get SONAR XL, Protools Mbox, Roland VSC on my new computer
    [pentium 4] to work together so that I can record midi and audio. I have a
    Roland midi keyboard controller [pc300] and a roland MC80 midi file player.
    I also have an on-board sound card which I'm told I should disable.What I
    need is a step by step guide on how to do this.

    The sales people and the device manufacturers have not been very helpful.

    Thanks for any advice.

  2. and then one day you'll just do something and the whole kitankaboodle will
    work but you will never be able to work out what you did.
    Be methodical strip it right back to basics and keep a desk diary
    because in 6 months time you will have forgotten what you did.

    I hate computers
