The File > Save As command opens the Save As dialog box, which lets you save a project with the name, directory, and format you specify. The Save As dialog box can also be used to save Groove clips as Riff Wave files from the Loop Construction view. Use the following fields to control your options:Select the type of file you want to save your project as. If you are saving a project, you have the following options:
Normal. Saving as type Normal saves your MIDI data, all project settings, and references to your audio data, with the extension .cwp. SONAR saves no audio data in a .cwp file, only references to where the data is on the hard disk. Saving your project as a bundle file saves all your project data in one place, including a new copy of your audio data; this method uses a lot more disk space than saving as a .cwp file.
Template. Template file with the extension .cwt. Use Template files to save commonly used project settings for quickly setting up a new project.
Cakewalk Bundle. Bundle file with the extension .cwb. Bundle files contain everything that a Normal file type contains with the addition of all your project's audio. Bundle files are great for backing up projects, and are also useful for moving SONAR projects from one computer to another.
MIDI Format 0. Save in this format to create a Standard MIDI File that has all channels merged into one track.
MIDI Format 1. Save in this format to create a Standard MIDI File that keeps each channel on a separate track.
Riff MIDI Format 0. Save in this format if you need a Riff MIDI File of Format 0.
Riff MIDI Format 1. Save in this format if you need a Riff MIDI File of Format 1.Riff Wave files. If you are saving in the Loop Construction view, you can save the wave file as a Groove Clip/Wave file or a regular Wave file, depending on whether you enabled looping on the clip that you’re saving. Groove Clip/Wave files are ACID-compatible files which can be used in SONAR or any application that supports ACIDized files.The Go to folder drop-down lets you quickly go to the default save location for different types of projects.When selected, this check box creates a copy of every audio file your project references, regardless of where they are located, and stores them in a folder called Audio Data. The Audio Data folder is created in the folder where you save your project. For example, if you save your project to the following folder:If you want to give the Audio Data folder a different name, you can do so using the Audio path option. See Audio path (Project saves only).This option is only available if the Copy all audio with project option is selected. When selected, the Create one file per clip option forces SONAR to create a new wave file for each unique clip. To conserve disk space, SONAR does not duplicate audio referenced by multiple copies of a clip, unless you have selected the Export Broadcast Waves By Default check box in Edit > Preferences > File - Audio Data.If you want to customize the name of the folder in which you store your audio files, specify it in this field. You can use the Browse button to specify where the folder is saved.
