In order to use Stutter Edit in SONAR and other Cakewalk hosts, you must load the VSTi version as an effect. If you do not do this, you will not be able to control Stutter Edit from a MIDI track or controller. SONAR can only send MIDI information to VST plug-ins it classifies as an “Instrument” – so you need to tell SONAR to use Stutter Edit as an “Instrument” before you can use it on your tracks. After taking these steps, you’ll be able to find Stutter Edit listed under your “Soft Synths” rather than “Effects,” but you’ll be able to add it as an insert effect to any track or bus. Next, find Stutter Edit in the directory of VST plug-ins that are displayed and select it in the list. Under the “VST Configuration” controls, press the “Plug-in Properties” button.
