Controlling playback ► Controlling the transport

If the Now time is advancing but you don’t hear any sound, see Frequently asked questions. If you are using MIDI sync or syncing to MIDI time code, SONAR waits to receive external timing data before it begins playing. If the various views are not updating during playback, make sure the SCROLL LOCK key on your computer keyboard is not enabled. For more information, see Synchronizing your gear.
Note: The default behavior for the Now time when you click the Stop button is for it to return to the Now time marker where playback began. If you want the Now time to remain where it is when you stop playback, you can use the keyboard shortcut CTRL+SPACEBAR. If you want to change the default behavior, clear the On Stop, Rewind to Now Marker option on the Track view Options menu or press CTRL+W.
