SONAR plays this kind of synth by seeing it as additional MIDI outputs in both the MIDI Devices dialog box and in MIDI tracks’ Output fields.
1. Go to Edit > Preferences > MIDI - Devices.
2. In the Outputs field, make sure the name of your stand-alone synth’s MIDI driver is highlighted, and click OK.
3. Click the Output field of an unused MIDI track to display the Output menu.
5. If your stand-alone synth is multi-timbral, change the track’s MIDI channel to the same one that the synth uses for the sound you want to hear.
7. When you play your MIDI controller or play back the recorded MIDI data, you should hear the stand-alone synth through your sound card’s outputs. If you don’t, make sure you’re playing in the right range and that your monitor speakers or headphones are turned up, and that none of the relevant tracks are muted.
