Step Recording

Even though you might be an accomplished musician, more than likely you have one main instrument you’re good at playing. If that instrument is the keyboard, that skill puts you ahead of some other musicians because the keyboard is one of the easiest instruments to use to record a MIDI performance. You can use other MIDI instruments, such as MIDI woodwind instruments, MIDI drums, and MIDI guitars, but those instruments tend to be very expensive. And if you learn to play a wind instrument or the drums or a guitar, you probably have a real instrument of that kind, not a MIDI one. This puts you at a bit of a disadvantage when you’re trying to record MIDI tracks. However, SONAR provides a feature called step recording that allows you to record a MIDI track one note at a time without having to worry about the timing of your performance.

In other words, you select the type of note you want to enter (such as a quarter note or a sixteenth note), and then you press one or more keys on your MIDI keyboard. SONAR then records those notes into the track with the timing you selected. You can also enter the measure, beat, and tick at which you want the notes to occur. Here’s how the step recording feature works:
