I need help configuring Sonar 4 PE for 5.1 Surround sound

Postby cellius » Sun Jan 01, 2006 6:52 pm

I just bought a set of surround sound speakers, and I have a Creative SoundBlaster 5.1 Live. So far they've just been upmixing to surround, since all I'm playing are stereo wavs and mp3s. That's fine. I'd like to at least be able to do this within Sonar.

My soundcard has 8 channel outputs, so I'm fine there, and I've selected a Surround Template in Options > Project > Surround tab, and I've inserted a Surround Bus. Now what do I do? I haven't had much luck searching in the Help menu. I don't know what channel outputs to set to each speaker (if it matters), and I don't know what to do with the Surround Bus. All I want to do is hear projects in surround sound (MIDI projects, mostly). I'll worry about downmixing later. Can anyone walk me through this? I'd appreciate it.
