I've had very similar problems. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE AND ARE RUNNING THE LATEST FIRMWARE AND DRIVER PACKAGE FOR YOUR MIDI CONTROLLER!!
MIDI controllers have nothing to do with Windows or ASIO audio drivers. Always use specified ASIO drivers supplied by manufacturer and for your audio interface.
ALWAYS make sure your MIDI controller supports the DAW you are using before even buying it. If SONAR isn't specifically listed as a supported DAW, it could very well be like a coin toss.. And create problems exactly like you're experiencing now.
I highly recommend reading several user experience reviews related to the MIDI controller and what ever DAW you intend on using it with!
You should also be able to uninstall Splat by opening "Windows Control Panel" by clicking on "Programs and Features". First choose the "Repair" option in the "Uninstall" dialog box. This won't fix Splat, it just fixes the corrupted installer package needed to install and uninstall Splat. After "repairing" run the uninstaller again.
Once Splat is sucessfully uninstalled, you should be able to perform a fresh install from CCC which should already have the .exe installation files downloaded to the "Cakewalk Content" folder in Windows "Program Files" folder.
If CCC is the problem you can log into your Cakewalk account by going into "Support" select "My Account" and download a fresh copy of CCC (the easy way, and not really recommended because it's no longer supported), or the hard way and go to My Products and download individual fresh copies of Splat and all other related content (loops and groove clips) and software THAT YOU LIKE TO USE
like all the added ProChannel modules, Adaptive Limiter, added synths, Dim Pro, Rapture, etc and so on and install it all manually.
Be sure to SAVE copies and keep all these downloadable's in a safe places so you won't ever have to download them again.
Hints and fun facts.... Your C:\ system drive is not a save place. CDR, DVDR, USB SD cards and thumb drives, and storage drives are the safest places.
And YES! After you reinstall SONAR Platinum
and make sure all your favorite bundled 3rd party plugins from XLN Audio, Bluetubes, and Melodyne, etc are all registered and up and running, as martins guit suggests (if you have a 64 bit version of Win 7 or 10) by all means I highly recommend upgrading to CAKEWALK BY BANDLAB!
You should be very, very, very HAPPY YOU DID!
You will need to leave Splat installed to have licensed functionality of 3rd party and extra/added plugins.
The only noticeable differences between SONAR Platinum and Cakewalk by Bandlab are the "Orange Icon", "Start Screen", fixes, and updates.
I.E. It's the same DAW that it ever was that can be kept current and UP TO DATE VERSION via the "Bandlab Assistant" as opposed to CCC.
