IMPORTANT NOTES
Handling DVD-ROM/CD-ROMs
Avoid touching or scratching the shiny underside (encoded surface) of the disc. Damaged or dirty DVD-ROM/CD-ROM discs may not be read properly.
Keep your discs clean using a commercially available cleaner.
DO NOT play a CD-ROM disc on a conventional audio CD player. The resulting sound may be of a level that could cause permanent hearing loss. Damage to
speakers or other system components may result.
Copyright
Recording, duplication, distribution, sale, lease, performance, or broadcast of copyrighted material (musical works, visual works, broadcasts, live performances,
etc.) belonging to a third party in part or in whole without the permission of the copyright owner is forbidden by law.
Do not use this unit for purposes that could infringe on a copyright held by a third party. We assume no responsibility whatsoever with regard to any
infringements of third-party copyrights arising through your use of this unit.
Additional Precautions
Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the contents of data that was stored on a hard disk etc. once it has been lost. Roland Corporation assumes no
liability concerning such loss of data.
To avoid disturbing your neighbors, try to keep the unit’s volume at reasonable levels. You may prefer to use headphones, so you do not need to be concerned
about those around you (especially when it is late at night).
Unauthorized duplication, reproduction, hiring, and lending prohibited.
Before you open the included DVD-ROM/CD-ROM, you must read the “license agreement.” Opening the DVD-ROM/CD-ROM will be taken to mean your
acceptance of the license agreement.
In the interest of product improvement, the specifications and/or contents of this package are subject to change without prior notice.
Use of the demosongs or data supplied with this product for any purpose other than private, personal enjoyment without the permission of the copyright
holder is prohibited by law. Additionally, this data must not be copied, nor used in a secondary copyrighted work without the permission of the copyright
holder.
The explanations in this manual include illustrations that depict what should typically be shown by the display. Note, however, that your unit may incorporate a
newer, enhanced version of the system (e.g., includes newer sounds), so what you actually see in the display may not always match what appears in the
manual.
While under most conditions, a computer similar to the “System Requirements” printed on package will permit normal operation of the SONAR V-STUDIO,
Roland cannot guarantee compatibility solely on these factors. This is due to numerous variables that may influence the processing environment, such as
differences in motherboard design and the particular combination of other devices involved.

If you’re using a MIDI keyboard to play software synthesizers, or if you’re using SONAR’s input monitor, you can
shorten the latency (delay until sound is heard) by reducing the I/O Buffer Size.
However, if you reduce the I/O buffer size too far, a greater processing load will be placed on your computer,
potentially causing pops, clicks, and dropouts (interrupted playback). If this occurs, increase the buffer size. ->
“About Mixing Latency” (p. 57)

Here’s how to specify the MIDI devices that you want to use.
1. Execute the “Options | MIDI Devices” command to open the “MIDI Devices” dialog box.
In the input field and output field of the “MIDI Devices” dialog box, select the following MIDI devices that you will
use with SONAR.
Input
Output
MIDI (VS-100)
MIDI (VS-100)
CONTROL (VS-100)
CONTROL (VS-100)
If you’re using an external MIDI sound module, you can use “Instrument Definitions” so that SONAR will
show the bank names, patch names, and controller function names of typical MIDI sound modules. For
details on “Instrument Definitions”, refer to the online Help.
* If you’ve connected an external MIDI device, such as an external MIDI keyboard (Edirol PCR series), to your computer
via a USB cable, select such MIDI devices as well. (For details on these MIDI devices, refer to the manuals for the devices
you’re using.)
* In SONAR, don’t use the following MIDI devices shown in the “MIDI Devices” dialog box. (Clear the check box for these
devices.)
• MIDI Mapper/Microsoft MIDI Mapper
These are virtual MIDI ports used by Windows, and are not used by SONAR.
• Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth
This monopolizes the audio driver, making it impossible to use audio functionality in SONAR.
• Roland VSC (stand-alone version)/ the stand-alone versions of other software synthesizers
These are not suitable for use in SONAR, since their latency cannot be managed from SONAR.
2. Click [OK] to close the dialog box.
If you’re using MIDI controllers or control surfaces in your system, and you’ve changed the settings of the
“MIDI Devices” dialog box, you may need to re-configure the Controllers/Surfaces plug-in settings. When you
change the contents of the “MIDI Devices” dialog box, the entire state of the Controllers/Surfaces plug-ins will
be initialized.
If you want to use an external MIDI device that’s connected to the SONAR V-STUDIO 100 hardware’s MIDI
connectors, select the “MIDI (VS-100)” MIDI port in the “MIDI Devices” dialog box.

Caution regarding MIDI Devices
When using the SONAR V-STUDIO 100 with a ReWire client such as Project5
Set your MIDI keyboard or other MIDI input device so that it will be used by either SONAR or the ReWire client (not
both). If you attempt to use the MIDI input device simultaneously by both, the following problems will occur.
• Your plug-in synthesizer will be triggered twice; once by the MIDI messages sent to the ReWire client via SONAR, and
also by the MIDI messages that are input directly to the ReWire client.
• The ReWire client will be unable to receive MIDI messages from your MIDI keyboard.
When using a controller or surface that supports bi-directional communication
Place this device so that it is at the bottom of the selected MIDI Devices in the “MIDI Devices” dialog box “Outputs”
field.
In SONAR, when you open an SMF or create a new MIDI track, priority is given to the higher of the devices selected in
the “Outputs” field. In this case, if the MIDI Device used to control the controller/surface is higher in the list,
performance data will be sent to the controller/surface, possibly causing unintended results.
To re-order the devices, select the device that you want to move upward, and click the [Move Checked
Devices to Top] button.

• Dropouts may occur during playback or recording if you connect/disconnect another USB device (such as a memory
key), or switch a device’s power on/off at the same time that SONAR is being used.
• Data transfer using USB could get congested if you use the SONAR V-STUDIO 100 hardware and a USB-connected hard
disk at the same time. As a result, the data transfer speed for the hard disk could be significantly reduced. As a storage
location for the audio data that you record and play back, you should avoid using a hard disk that is connected via USB.
• Dropouts during playback/recording sometimes occur immediately after the system has started up, or after it has
woken from sleep. Wait for a while, then try the playback/recording again.
• Either the project is a very large one that your computer has insufficient power to play back, or there is a problem with
the settings of the audio driver.
• Check the settings as described in “Audio Driver Settings” (p. 21) and try playing it back again.
If this does not solve the problem, refer to “Eliminating Clicks and Dropouts” (p. 49).

Recording audio
1. Connect your instrument or microphone
In order to record audio, you’ll connect your instrument or microphone to the SONAR V-STUDIO 100. Some typical
types of connections are shown below.
Connecting a microphone
If you’re using a condenser microphone that has a balanced (XLR) plug and requires phantom power to be
supplied, set the PHANTOM switch to “+48V.” Phantom power will be supplied to both MIC jacks, INPUT 1L
and 2R. This means that a mic requiring phantom power cannot be used simultaneously with a microphone
that does not require phantom power.
You must turn phantom power off unless you’re using a condenser mic that requires a phantom power
supply. Malfunctions will occur if phantom power is supplied to a dynamic microphone or audio
playback device. For details on the specifications of your microphone, refer to its owner’s manual.
The SONAR V-STUDIO 100’s balanced (XLR) type connectors
that are wired as shown in the illustration. Be sure to check
the wiring of your equipment before making connections.

Troubleshooting
Eliminating Clicks and Dropouts
If data cannot be recorded while recording audio, or if data cannot be fully processed during playback, SONAR will
automatically halt. This is called a dropout. Clicks or pops may also occur if problems occur in communication
between SONAR and the SONAR V-STUDIO 100 hardware.
There are a variety of possible reasons why clicks, pops, and dropouts might occur. To eliminate the cause of the
problem, follow the checkpoints listed below.
If problems occurs even with small projects
Increase the Mixing Latency
Extremely short Mixing Latency settings will place an excessive processing load on your computer.
“About Mixing Latency” (p. 57)
Try changing the Driver Mode
Since the SONAR V-STUDIO 100 hardware supports both WDM/KS and ASIO, you can try changing the “Driver
Mode” (p. 23).
“Audio Driver Settings” (p. 21)
Change the I/O Buffer Size
You may be able to solve the problem by changing the “I/O Buffer Size” in the “Advanced” tab of the “Audio Options”
dialog box. The I/O Buffer Size specifies the size of the buffer used when reading from, or writing to the disk. This
value will not affect the Mixing Latency. The default setting is 256, but you can try changing this to 512 if audiorelated problems occur.
Install the correct device driver
Even for your non-audio devices, make sure that the correct device drivers for your computer system are installed
and that your computer is running correctly. You should pay particular attention to this if you’ve modified your
computer or added peripheral devices, or if you’re using a computer that you assembled yourself.
Lower the screen resolution
Some computers have graphics functionality that places a heavy load on the CPU. You may be able to lighten this
load by lowering the screen resolution.
Uninstall the drivers of audio interfaces you’re not using
Some audio interfaces not intended for use in music production may cause problems with other audio interfaces (e.g.
the SONAR V-STUDIO 100 hardware). If SONAR does not perform as well as you expect, try using the Device Manager
to disable the standard audio functionality of your computer, or physically remove it and then uninstall the device.
Disable other hardware devices
Other hardware devices may interfere with the performance of your audio device. We recommend that you disable
any unnecessary hardware devices, such as network adapters and internal sound cards.

Troubleshooting
If problems occur more frequently with large (heavy) projects
Increase the Mixing Latency
Extremely short Mixing Latency settings may place an excessive load on your computer.
“About Mixing Latency” (p. 57)
Use freezing or bouncing to reduce the load on your computer
If the size of the project exceeds the processing capability of your computer, you can reduce the processing load by
freezing synthesizers or bouncing audio tracks.
Update the driver of your audio device
In most cases, newer driver versions of the audio interface will have fewer problems and improved performance.
Close other programs
If other programs are running, they will reduce the CPU resources and memory that are available to SONAR. It is best
to close all programs that are not needed for your work.
Change the VS-100 driver’s buffer size
In some cases, reducing the VS-100 driver’s buffer size may allow stable operation even with a shorter Mixing
Latency.
1. Before you change the driver settings, you must close all programs that are using the SONAR
V-STUDIO 100 hardware. This is not necessary if you’re merely viewing the settings.
2. Open the “Control Panel” and click “VS-100.”
* If you don’t see the above icon, click “Switch to classic view.”
The “VS-100 Driver settings” dialog box appears.
3. Adjust the “Audio Buffer Size.”
To change the setting, make the desired setting and click [OK]. If you merely want to view the setting without
changing it, be sure to click [Cancel] after you’ve noted the setting.
* Execute SONAR’s “Wave Profiler...” if you’ve changed the buffer size (unless you’re using ASIO mode).

The Mixing Latency setting is closely related to how SONAR can take full advantage of your computer’s performance.
Increasing the mixing latency will allow more audio processing to be performed within SONAR. However, increasing
the mixing latency will lengthen the time (latency) from when SONAR begins processing the audio until you actually
hear the sound. Increasing the latency will adversely affect your MIDI keyboard playing.
The most suitable Mixing Latency setting will depend on the performance of your computer and on various settings,
such as the sampling rate you’re using. If you experience the following problems with the default settings, try
adjusting the mixing latency.
Notes are delayed when you play a software synthesizer from a MIDI keyboard
Lower settings for Mixing Latency will shorten the delay (latency) from when you play a key until you hear the sound
from the software synthesizer.
However, shortening the latency may cause interruptions or dropouts in the sound; if this occurs, you won’t be able
to shorten the latency any further.
Interruptions or dropouts occur during playback in SONAR
You may be able to reduce interruptions or dropouts by increasing the Mixing Latency.
Procedure for setting the Mixing Latency
1. Execute the “Options | Audio” command to open the “Audio Options” dialog box. Click the
“General” tab.
2. Click the [Wave Profiler...] button. If you see an indication that the operation ended successfully,
the setting is OK. If the screen indicates “Audio Driver Error,” there may be a problem with the
setting; check once again from step 1. on p. 21.
3. In the “Mixing Latency” area, use the “Buffer Size” slider to change the latency.
The size of the specified Mixing Latency is shown in the latency field located below the slider. The size of the Mixing
Latency is determined by two factors: “Buffers in Playback Queue” and “Buffer Size.” Normally, you’ll adjust the
“Buffer Size.” If you’re trying to eliminate interruptions in the sound, you may be successful by increasing “Buffers
in Playback Queue” to a value of 3-5.
4. Click [OK] to close the dialog box.
If the screen indicates “Audio Driver Error”, there may be a problem with the setting; check once again from step 1.
on p. 21.
5. Play back the project in SONAR, and listen to the playback. If necessary, return to step 1. and
adjust the latency again.
* If the driver mode is ASIO, adjust the “Audio Buffer Size” in the [ASIO Panel].
