IntroductionSetup ► Changing I/O devices

The Missing Audio Outputs dialog box will suggest default assignments for any missing devices. You can click OK to accept the assignments, or click Cancel to preserve the original missing device assignments. You can also preserve the original missing device by selecting [Unassigned] from the Available Devices list. If you choose not to reassign a missing device, the Output port selection in SONAR will show the missing device name prefixed by MISSING.
When Use friendly names to represent audio drivers is selected in Edit > Preferences > Audio - Devices, SONAR can intelligently remap devices across different hardware configurations or driver models by using your assigned friendly driver names, even if the hardware names do not match.
Changing MIDI output ports in Edit > Preferences > MIDI - Devices has the following effect:
*
Enabling a new output port. All MIDI tracks and control surfaces retain their current output port assignments.
*
Disabling an unassigned output port. All MIDI tracks and control surfaces retain their current output port assignments.
*
Disabling an assigned output port. The result is different for MIDI tracks and control surfaces:
*
MIDI tracks. The Missing MIDI Ports dialog box appears and lets you remap the missing output ports to available output ports.
*
Control surfaces. The control surface output port is assigned to None.
