The next important step is telling SONAR which output on your sound device you would like audio tracks to play on. In some cases, it is desirable to have tracks playing different outputs (such as if you are using external hardware processing for effects). In this scenario, you’ll want to set all of the audio tracks to the same output.Let’s start with the Bass track. Locate the track named Bass in the project. Let’s take a closer look at a few of the track’s controls. If the track controls are not all visible, you may need to expand the track to see them all.
Tip: If you do not see all the track controls, click the Track Control button to the left of the Track view Time Ruler, and select All from the menu. You can also hold down the SHIFT key and press the Left ARROW and RIGHT ARROW keys to cycle through the available control layouts. For details, see To configure track and bus control layouts.
Locate the drop-down list for Output and click the small arrow to show all available outputs. Select the output that your speakers or headphones are connected to. If you can’t find the Output drop-down list, make sure you have expanded the track fully by dragging it down.
Tip: If you need to change multiple outputs simultaneously, select the tracks, then hold down the CTRL key while you change the Output setting in any selected track. You can also click a track’s Output control and choose Selected Track Outputs, which opens a dialog box that allows you to change the Audio and MIDI outputs of all selected tracks.
