Sonic Studio problem

Just opened sonic studio for the first time (haven´t read the manual un full yet)..... why won´t the bastard recognize any audio files when I try to open(import) from another file? Sitting down with the manual now, but I would like to import a entire unmastered disc to start my week of "training". Thanks

I think you mean Sonic HD don't you?

I skipped that one and went from Classic to SounBlade. But can't you find the import function or what does it do?
Maybe import works fine but all you have to do is calculate/render waveforms after import. This takes quite some time.

It sonic HD
HD didn't have the flexibility in file formats that soundBlade does, but you can still drag a wav or aif from the desktop directly to a panel and it will play. To get a waveform for it in HD, you have to select it in the edl and then go to the... I think file menu to choose build waveform. You may even be able to use cmd-B or something like that. Without doing that, it just looks like a block, but still plays, and even generates a waveform in realtime if you are zoomed in close enough.

The files still should to be on a Sonic SCSI volume or you may experience unpredictable behavior. Firewire is mostly unuseable with HD, though internal IDE drives actually can work (though still not recommended for critical work) depending on your system and configuration. Without Sonic native files, I don't think you can perform background operations, and may have trouble with NoNoise, but edit and delivery should still work. You can make Sonic native files either by recording them into HD in realtime, or using barbabatch to convert existing files.

Duffster,
If you're not already aware of it, there is a Sonic users Email group that is very helpful with the older Sonic programs.
