  1. Just a quick update, plus a question about splitting clips to the notes, so a clip with several notes are automatically split into one clip for each note and is adjusted to be the length of a note too? Is this possible? I can only chose to snap to "measures" in the split-dialog. Anyhow. There's another way to do MIDI note warping too, although it is much harder to control how you want it all, plus that it will be a bit backwards. If you put Time Base to "Absolute" (no need to lock the clips), you can then adjust the tempo curve (although you'd need to speed it up in order for the clips to come apart (and slow down)), and when you've done that you change back the Time Base to "Musical" and then you can delete the tempo automation. This will then result in moved clips according to the adjusted tempo. It might be useful for some cool effects, although the first method by bvideo is much easier for the task of decelerating and accelerating.
  2. My notes actually stayed the same (they were not time streteched), just as I want it to be. However, if one would need to stretch the notes accordingly, maybe one could lock "Data" too? I can try. Yeah exactly. The mathematic perfection is there, so it can be streched as needed and the notes move up and down as needed too in case one need a melody. Yeah tedious but at least it's something if one does not want to install Reaper. This is great!
  3. Haha yeah! WOW! THAT worked! Worked like a charm! fantastic! Midi notes distributed perfectly! Thanks so much! Very well done! 👍👍👍
  4. Ohhh, that I must try!! A little more work, but could be rewarding! Note length doesn't matter much as that can easily be corrected later with the length setting. I'll report back soon.
  5. Alright, just tried this! I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I set the time base to "Absolute" in the MIDI clip properties, then I clear the tempo track data I've drawn for the deceleration as I wanted it. And then the track plays at the normal tempo again, but the MIDI clip have not been streched/warped anything, it's still just as I've drawn in the notes there. With other words, the MIDI clip stays the same as it was before, and no redistribution of the notes have taken place.
  6. This sounds VERY interesting and might do what I need! I will try this at once! I'll let you know if this work as soon as I'm finished!
  7. Yes I know this, but as mentioned before, I need the track to run the same tempo. I need deceleration and acceleration for an effect, while everything else is playing at a set tempo. What I CAN do, is to do this in another project, use the tempo track as I've mentioned before, record what I need, and then put back the audio file in the main project. However, I want to be able to do this for several tracks and I also want to be able to adjust this in real time without this procedure. But, I've now learned there is no such feature in Cakewalk, nor plugin, so that's it, then I know. I'll have to do this by other means.
  8. Okay, if I put it this way. I want one MIDI track(or clip) to slow down gradually, while the rest is playing constantly at the same speed. Also, I want to be able to do the same thing and accelerating. Now, this can be used for lots of stuff, and one is to create FX. I'm talking about accelerando and rallentando here, quite basic things in music really. And in my case, not for the whole project, which the tempo track would solve, but for certain MIDI clips only
  9. What do you mean by note values? I'm talking about the positioning of the notes, the position in time.
  10. And just to clarify, I do not want to alter the tempo of the project, it is important that the tempo is steady throughout the song. I only want to do a gradual tempo change (decelerating, or accelerating) on the MIDI notes on one MIDI track only. I do not want to evenly drag out the MIDI clip to adjust tempo. I want to "warp" it so the beginning of the clip stays the same, and the further away you get from the first note in the MIDI clip, the longer space between the notes, thus creating a deceleration effect. And the same thing the other way around, for accelerating.
  11. I mean like the "Mutli tool" does for Reaper, a script that can warp the midi notes, like this: Source: https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=176878
  12. I want the melody slowing down gradually, not by altering the project's tempo, but rather having the midi notes moved apart accordingly.
  13. Yes, but that only drags everything apart. I need deceleration, and/or acceleration.
  14. I just edited my original post with a more comprehensible explanation. And of course I would like to have this done perfectly mathematically calculated. I know I can move apart the notes myself but not only it would be very time consuming, it wouldn't be too exact either, not without calculating every position beforehand.
  15. Is there a plugin for accelerating and/or decelerating MIDI? So the individual notes are moved? With other words NOT a project tempo change with the tempo editor/tempo track. Lets say the MIDI notes looks like this in the beginning: . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . And I want them to look like this: .... . . . . . . . . . . . . With other words decelerating, the notes gradually pulled apart farther and farther way. And for accelerating it would obviously be the opposite, the notes gradually moved closer and closer together. Is there a way to do this at all in Cakewalk?
  16. Now THIS man, this right here is the clear winner! THANK YOU SO MUCH! Exactly what I was looking for! 👍
  17. Thank you! That solved the problem! Although a bit more work than I hoped for. There's no way to add the clip gain option to the right click menu? (Changing the edit filter will do that for the entire track instead of only the clip I want to adjust). I'm however glad that there's at least an option to adjust gain
  18. Ohhhh!! Hahaha, man, why didn't I think of that Of course, you're correct! However, editing the freeze options was even better, then I don't need to drag the clip edges at all, as it will all be automated after I've set up the desired tail length and enabled silence removal and so forth Thanks anyway mate!
  19. Is there a "Per clip" lossless volume adjustment? When I right click an audio clip, I cannot find an option for volume adjustment for that particular clip. I do not want to adjust the entire track volume, but only lower the volume on one clip. Also, I rather not use Process>Apply Effect>Gain, because that will "permanently" change the audio clip volume. Volume automation track adjustment is not really an option either, as it would alter the volume for the entire track no matter how many clips that's overlapping. Is there a way to adjust the volume on "per audio clip" basis?
  20. Fantastic man! Thanks alot! This was EXACTLY what I was looking for! Perfect!
  21. Thanks scook! Dragging the clip edge only extends silence, and not any actual recording, unfortunately. But the Freeze option settings recommended just above solved my problem!
  22. I can't find the setting for the "Freeze Synth" tail length. With other words for how long it will record after the last note has stopped. The best would be if it automatically recorded until total silence from the VSTi, but it doesn't. And I can't find any setting for this. The thing is that every time there is a long reverb or delay on a synth I try to freeze, the audio clip is just cut before the reverb or delay is finished. A way to solve this is to put another note or anything long after the last note that one want to keep, freeze the track and then just cut the audio. However this is unnecessarily time consuming and should be done automatically by the DAW. Any ideas?
