I am looking for help. I have a 64-bit Windows7 machine with 8MB of memory. I installed SonarXI(build c 64bit) and am using the Saffire Pro24DSP (Firewire) as my interface.

I can hear my input on the Pro24 thru it's Zero Latency monitor mode, and Sonar is recording audio. However, the playback from Sonar back through Saffire is intermittent, at best, and when I can get audio out from Sonar, it has terrible digital distortion.

I am running Sonar at 24/96. I have the Saffire at 96mHz but don't see any way to manipulate the bit depth. Dropping down to 16 bit INCREASES the distortion.

I called Cakewalk, and they tweaked the Sonar ASIO driver mode and confirmed that it's seeing my Saffire. I am waiting to hear from focusrite through their email support. I am really tearing my hair out--it's not just distorted, getting any output at all is INTERMITTENT. Maybe my Firewire card?

I appreciate any feedback. Many thanks, folks!

Best,
Henry

Does Sapphire need a 64 bit driver also?

I am making the assumption that 64 bit is a new item for you.

It sounds like a soundcard driver issue or it could be your FireWire card as you suggested. Does the FireWire card have a TI chipset?
