    Basically, never used to happen but it's been doing this for a while now. I can't record anything audio without having the other tracks, unless I mute them, (both midi and audio)being mixed down on my last audio recording... and the louder they are in the mix, the louder they appear in the last audio track as if I wanted to mix them all down together(e.g. can't get a clean audio track with just vocals for example, the wole mix will be there as well)
    If anyone could help...
    Thanks

    Can you tell us a little bit more about the hardware you are using..
    make sure input monitoring is turned off in the audio settings....

    Input monitoring is off
    I'm using Sonar2XL on a PC under XP with a built in card (sound blaster PCI) which I don't use for recording (whether I disable it or not, the problem remains) and a EMU APS card with KXdrivers in order to run under windows XP.

    Here are some comments made by other people which have not solved the problem yet but maybe useful...

    ------------------
    It SOUNDS like the ENTIRE mix output, along with the NEW audio, is being used as the input for the track!!

    This is either a track/buss assign problem within Sonar, or in the setup of your soundcard.

    Let's get Teacher, a Sonar user, (who does a GOOD job recording ), to help you out with the specifics, IF he doesn't mind!!

    Bob Buontempo.
    ----------------------
    your problem makes absolutely no sense to me unless you have some sort of external mixer that is summing all your sounds to the 2 bus and thats what your sound card is recording, while you are trying to lay new vocals

    other then that go to your windows volume control, properties, record, and make sure mic in is selected as record device and not WAVE in
    -------------------------
    Yes, if he RIGHT CLICKS the volume control on the 'Taskbar' on his computer, he can mute the other inputs in the computer's software mixer.

    BUT, isn't there a 'Track Assign' in Sonar, where he might be assigning the 'Stereo Buss' to the new track, as well?

    I don't know, having never even opened up a copy of Sonar, myself
    --------------------------------
    o yea

    set your input to Left or Right which eva input your mic is connected too.

    but i'm not too familiar with mixing within Sonar cuz i mix externally. so the mixer functions of sonar aren't my strong points, but if i can't help you check this site out they'll be able to help u

    It sounds more like an INternal routing problem with the audio hardware...I am not familiar with the sound card you are using so I shall do some research and see if i can give you some suggestions

    The" problem is sorted, it was the wave level recording fader that was messing it all up, I just had to mute it (I thought it was necessary to record from a microphone...)
    Thanks for all the help :)
