O.K., I am using Cakewalk SONAR 2.2 with Edirol VSC and Hypercanvas as DXi plugins. I would ASSUME that SONAR would be advanced enough to be able to RENDER/CONVERT MIDI files directly to WAV using the DX Instruments, completely digitally, without going through my cruddy consumer grade sound card. But everytime I try the Bounce to Track or Export commands, it starts doing a "midxdown" and "converting:" in what appears to be realtime, only guiving me the choice to use my sound card's "source bus". WHAT is the deal here?! I don;t want to use high proquality wavetable sound and then have it run through my D/A and A/D converters on my cheap and noisy $20 sound card....now come on! Is that what is happening when it says it is using my sound card's "source bus" and appears to be "playing" in real time as it "renders"? The stand alone VSC seems to render all digitally, which is nice, but I need to use Hypercanvas and Orchestral, etc. There are no controls or info in the manuals about rendering directly to WAV digitally, although they claim tro be able to render 96K/24 bit WAV. I need digital rendering, not recording using my sound card! Is this what is happening? Isn't there a way to do all digital rendering to WAV using a DXi SoftSynth like Hypercanvas?
