I hear(read) all this great stuff about 24+ track counts and many plugins and stuff, and I say to myself, that's what I want. But I haven't been able to get it. I have loaded the trial demo of sonar onto my computer (300mhz AMD, 256k ram) and I can only play back eight tracks at a time. and trying to record a ninth track is an impossibility. Now I built this system way back in '98, with a gigabyte mother board, I believe it uses a Sis-logic chipset, could that be the problem? Could it be the trial version of sonar? I really dooubt that, as I have normally used Homestudio with the same problem. But I am wanting to upgrade, to do some engineering/proucing for friends and stuff and what I have now ain't gonna cut it. I really like AMD (affordability issues) and I have already bought a 900mhz Athlon and mother board. Pretty soon, I will be putting it together and running Sonar on it to see if it get's any better. In the meantime, I was wondering if anyone would have an idea about what I could be doing wrong, let me know.
