Dialog box referencePreferences dialog ► File - Audio Data

The Audio Data section lets you specify settings for recording, rendering and importing audio data.
The Audio Data section contains the following settings:
list-image
Global Audio Folder. The Global Audio Folder is where audio files are stored for all projects when per-project audio is not turned on. It is also used to store audio for older, non-per-project audio projects, as well as a temporary folder for unpacked bundle files and to store audio for as yet unnamed projects.
list-image
Picture Folder. This folder contains the waveform images for all audio files in all your projects.
list-image
Always copy imported audio files. When checked this option forces SONAR to always copy all imported audio files to your audio data directory. If you want to keep all your audio files in one location, always keep this option checked.
list-image
Always Import Broadcast Waves at Their Timestamp. Forces SONAR to ignore the Now Time when importing Broadcast Wave files. When this option is checked, Broadcast Waves begin at their SMPTE timestamp in your project.
list-image
Export Broadcast Waves By Default. Check this option if you want the Broadcast Waves option to appear by default in the Export Audio dialog box.
list-image
Apply SMPTE Offset to Broadcast Wave Timestamps. Check this option if you want to add the SMPTE/MTC Offset value (listed in Edit > Preferences > Project - Clock) to the timestamps of the Wave files that you export from SONAR.
list-image
Allow importing of WAV File Cue Markers. Check this option if you want SONAR to import cue markers that may exist in wave files.
Many field recorders, such as the Edirol R-4, can add cue markers to the wave files that they record. If you import these wave files into SONAR, the markers appear as standard SONAR markers on the Time Ruler.
list-image
Record Bit Depth. Use this field to choose the bit depth that recorded audio data will use. You can change this at any time.
list-image
Render Bit Depth. Use this field to choose the bit depth that audio processing (freezing, bouncing, applying effects) will use. The default value of 32 allows virtually lossless processing.
list-image
Import Bit Depth. Use this field to choose the bit depth that imported audio will use. The default choice of Original keeps the imported audio at its current bit depth.
list-image
Use Per-Project Audio Folders. This option is on by default, and allows you to use a different audio data folder for each project.
