A bug in "Bass Premier Pack" and "Moog Premier" while using Cubase4

A bug occurs when upgraded to Cubase4, in "Bass Premier Pack" and "Moog Premier" that may interfere with sound output. This will not happen with other libraries such as  Wurlitzer, or Ac Bass.

Here is a solution for this problem from Steinberg.

Only the smallest numbered output (Stereo 1 on initial setting with HALion3) is effective with Cubase4. This occurs do to other programs which are set to Monoral Output (e.g. Mono 1) and does not sound due to output being disabled.

Please try these suggestions to resolve the issue:
- Change HALion's Out Program (center of GLOBAL menu) to Stereo 1 or;

- Allocate HALion 3 on VST Instrument, then [enable all output] by a button to set the number of output, which is located on the right side of [e] button on the same rack.

To use HALion with SONAR

Though we typically do not experience major issues in this area, due to our limited support with SONAR, we ask that you please request assistance to SONAR (Roland) directly for complete results in trouble-shooting.
