  1. Thank you very much. I got through it (this morning)! Your tutorial shows me something that I thought was more complicated and would take a lot of time. I don't have to set up INS files very often and have almost always gotten them from a manufacturer or user forum.
  2. Does anyone have such a file? I desperately need one as soon as I can get it. Thank you, UCG Musician
  3. I am in need of an ins file for a Yamaha P-35 digital piano. Does anyone on the forum have one or a recommended source for one? Thank you, UCG Musician
  4. I have Sonar Command Center taking up 27 Gb of space on my computer. I use Cakewalk by Bandlab exclusively now and don't ever launch older versions of the software. Do I need the Command Center for anything? I notice that some folks are using it for some applications but I can't tell if it's just habit or if the program still has utility not available though Cakewalk by Bandlab. If I don't need it I'd certainly like to free up the space.
  5. NEVER MIND. I had the key offset at 12.
  6. MIDI is playing all the notes of a violin track an octave higher than written. It's not an instrument thing; I've tried a bunch of different patches. The MIDI device is a Roland XV-5050. I've used it for many years and can't recall this ever happening before. Specifically, the first written note is Bb middle line treble clef. Right clicking on the note shows it as Bb5. It plays back as the Bb one ledger line above the treble clef. Bb4 should be slightly higher in frequency than 440 A, like 466.16 to be precise. The written Bb4 should sound at 466.16 Hz but MIDI is playing it at 932.33. Does anyone have an idea of why this is happening?
  7. Hi David, Thanks for the help. I got it to work and now the sequence is 8 minutes long instead just over 9. (For me that means it's short enough to play art church!). Sorry for the spelling error. I DO know it's ritardando ("ritard." or "rit." for short) but must have been in a hurry to get this posted. UCG Musician
  8. Did you get an answer on this? Do you still need ins files for the XV-5050? If so, I have them.
  9. I downloaded a MIDI file and am working on it in Cakewalk. All the tempos (tempi) are a little slow and there a large number of retards and accelerandos. I would like to preserve the tempo changes but increase all tempi by a certain percentage or beats per minute, even if that means I have to adjust the retards and accelerandos somewhat afterwards. Is there a way to do this? Can't find it in the documentation...
  10. Greetings, This is my first time posting on this forum. I hope there are experienced SONAR Platinum users who can provide a little advice on a problem I frequently have. I regularly create MIDI sequences for use at my church, which has a MIDI organ and digital keyboard. But I always have to do the bulk of the work at home, where I have (obviously) totally different instruments. The organ utilizes very old MIDI messages (everything done in NRPNs) and I can only get appropriate settings by recording what happens when I turn stops on and off. It's a real challenge to adapt a sequence done at home with SONAR driving a KORG Kronos88 and a Roland XV-5050 to the instruments at church. I currently have a situation where I created a MIDI file at home and then adapted it to the church instruments but now need to make tempo and other changes to the file and that's only practical at home because I do not have regular access to the church instruments. With that as a background, my question is whether there is a straightforward way of using a SONAR file with one set of instruments and their peculiar banks, patches, NRPNs, etc. on a different set of instruments without having to change all those parameters? In particular I need to create a fairly involved tempo map and do not want to reset everything on the "church version" of the file to play properly at home. I want to create a tempo map using the original file that utilized the instruments at home and then copy ONLY the tempo map to the "church version". Can this be done? If so, please explain clearly or point me to documentation that covers it. Thanks, UCG Musician
