Hi. Another BSOD today whilst working with Sonar. I've had these types of crashes with this program before as well. This is my first crash since applying your aforementioned recommendations. I updated to the latest driver, which as I mentioned, is a beta and still quite old. I've also put the Nvidia drivers - 306.23 - on as well. My startup has been reduced but I'm still running a couple of programs such as: USB Safety remove, RoboForm, ChillControl for my water cooler - WDDMStatus for my external drives, USB 3.0 monitor, InstallShiled Update Service, IAStorIcon from Intel, and CTxF1HLP, which I think has something to do with my Creative Audio drvs. Once, recently, when I restarted my computer with none of the drivers selected, audio did not start, so I had no sound drivers loaded.

So, something is still not gelling. Today in the first instance, Sonar stopped working when I was playing a softsynth line, whilst the rest of my composition was playing. I restarted it and not long after, the BS occurred.
As mentioned, in the past the driver irql has happened from time to time whilst playing in this or an earlier version of Sonar - X1, Sonar 8.
Let me know what you think of my latest dump files...still hoping you can figure this out. Creative wanted me to uninstall their software and then Sonar but I've been down this road as well and it's a nightmare to reinstall Sonar, as I have so many modules and softsynths and their respective add-ons, so I don't want to go down this path and a major time waster...anyway, I have done this once before when I rebuilt the system a while back, with this current computer.
