I use Sonar Artist. I have a Roland JunoDS that I have some sounds on I want to use as MIDI so I have it setup as an external sound generator and it is playing the MIDI notes with its patches. Along with the MIDI out/in of my Focusrite interface going to the Juno, I have an audio cable from the Juno to the input of the interface. Now my question: How do I bounce the MIDI track to turn my MIDI into Audio? When I do it the usual way, it tells me there is no sound with it. I added the audio input, and highlighted both the MIDI track and the audio track it is on. It doesn't give me the no sound error but just doesn't bounce any sound. Help? THANK YOU!!

I don't think you can "bounce" a MIDI track in this fashion. Does the Juno play audio from the MIDI during playback? If so, your audio track just needs its input set to whatever input is connected to the keyboard's audio output, and armed for recording. Hit record and the MIDI track should play the keyboard, and the corresponding audio track should record it.

Hi Marty. I just now read what you said. Seems we've both said the same thing. Should work.

So you are using the internal sounds of an external keyboard as your MIDI sound source? You'd need to record audio (line out) from the keyboard as the sound is triggered from Sonar. The focusrite has the "line out" from the keyboard going in, so you could arm an audio record on another track in sonar to record the "line out" audio from the keyboard through the focusrite. So sonar is sending MIDI triggering to the juno, which creates audio. That audio goes into the focusrite and then into a "record armed" audio track on sonar. Should work if you are able to select the audio from the focusrite as the input for the armed audio record track. I don't see any reason you can't do this. The focusrite is full duplex so it should handle both playback and record at the same time.

Sorry, I missed the notifications there were comments on this. Yes I did get it figured out. Using the line out and arming the track. Had my brain too focused on the MIDI side of it. All this for one patch I want to use for something haha. THANK YOU ALL! :)
