Problem with Sonar Step Sequencer...

    I though that the best and fastest way for people to understand what the problem is was for me to record what I am doing so you can see and hear the problem. Here is a link to the 52 second recording that I made...
    YouTube - Sonar Drum Problem 1

    If you notice that out of 8 beats on the bass drum only the 1st, 2nd, 4th are working. Any idea what the problem might be?

    I am really sorry for the double post but if I can not figure this out I just wasted hundreds of dollars on building this computer and the software and a couple of plugins...


    In step sequencer I am setting it up like this

    4 Beats - 4 Steps
    Code:
          1                2                3               4
    [ ][ ][ ][ ]  |  [ ][ ][ ][ ]  |  [ ][ ][ ][ ]  |  [ ][ ][ ][ ] 

    Now I add a beat like this...(X is where the Bass Drum SHOULD hit)
    Code:
          1                2                3               4
    [ ][X][ ][X]  |  [ ][X][ ][X]  |  [X][ ][X][ ]  |  [X][ ][X][ ] 
    
    I push play to hear what I have but only 3 beats are playing. If you look at the drum set on the screen you will see that the Bass Drum is only being hit three of the eight times, so it is not a matter of it not just playing the sound of the hit...(X is where the Bass Drum SHOULD hit...O is where the Bass Drum IS hitting)
    Code:
      
         1                2                3               4
    [ ][O][ ][O]  |  [ ][X][ ][O]  |  [X][ ][X][ ]  |  [X][ ][X][ ] 

    Any ideas what would make the Step Sequencer work right?
