  1. That is an answer (see Collin?), in my mind it was not clear since keyswitches into the piano roll were not removed. Thanks, it's gonna be very useful as a tool
  2. But also watch the video from 3:40 about how the pianoroll looks messy when filled with all those keyswitches, does the articulation map solve the problem? Also, if you decide to replace a sustain articulation with a legato one, will you have to also make that change into the map line? is it what we call a saving time feature ? If the articulation map would trigger keys by itself, that would be a great tool.
  3. What's the point of having an articulation map when you must input anyway keyswitches into the piano roll ?
  4. Have a look on Caller and his CAL scripts. Though this GUI is not embedded into Cakewalk it could speed up your workflow.
  5. Done, I was reluctant to scare users with an exe version. Thanks
  6. MoShuang, That's ok, Caller is installed and binded. Now, is AutoHotkey installed on your computer? Caller.Ahk GUI interface will not operate without AutoHotKey. As already mentioned in the Help section : Many CAL Windows may popup when calling a script, there is nothing wrong, just let do it.
  7. MoShuang, First of all, into Cakewalk, select a midi note and press Alt+Shift+C in order to make sure that Caller.Cal is binded to that keys. Also, check if the PPQ (Ticks per Quarter-Note) is set to 960 into Preferences > Project > Clock. Maybe you could start with the Note Tab. Click on some blue Pitch item and see if the selected Midi note into Cakewalk is following accordingly to the pitch command : About drawing cc's, if you follow the tutorial into the Help section, this is what you should get into the Piano Roll: Of course you can select and draw cc's to only one note: You can also span the drawing (Draw: Span Notes) on all selected notes, even delete the second part and redraw that specific part: There are no explicit rules to follow, just experiment and find ways to enhance your workflow. Hope that helps
  8. Edit: Caller.Zip now contains the executable version of Caller(Caller.Exe) if you don't want to install AutoHotKey. A "Windows protected your PC" message may appear the first time you load Caller.Exe. Hello, slowly, I come back making music just for fun. It would not happen without my utility tool Caller, which makes a huge step regarding time saving. I'm over sixties now and Caller will not evolve anymore from my side, but the source code (Caller.Ahk) is there, anybody may tailor the app for his own purpose. About Caller - Caller is an AutoHotKey GUI interface which handles some powerful CAL scripts. - CAL is a scripting application language which allows to process Midi data events into Cakewalk. - AutoHotkey is a free, open-source scripting language for Microsoft Windows. Installation - Unzip Caller.Zip and move the content to C:\Cakewalk Content\Cakewalk Core\CAL Scripts. - Drag and drop Caller.Ahk or Caller.Exe onto your desktop. - Into Cakewalk, open the menu Edit > Preferences > Customization > Keyboard Shortcuts, bind Caller.Cal to Alt+Shift+C. Download Caller sit it over your Taskbar and have fun! Note and Time functions...
  9. Thanks, what a quick answer, only thirty seconds to despair
  10. When the space is pressed to stop playing the cursor is not moving back to the prior starting point. Is there a way to make it do ?
  11. That was in release 2020.05. I just updated to 2020.08 and bingo everything is fine. My feeling was that the problem could be related to the font size. Anyway, this Arranger feature is a great asset added to Cakewalk. Thank you very much.
  12. No luck, it's already set to On. In the following example, the lag increases when several sections are added using Ctrl - Click - drag the section .
  13. Hi Kevin, Here is a walkthrough that will give a better picture of the situation : I clicked on the Drums Track in order to position the "Select From" and "Select Thru" arrows. Then, right-clicked the Arranger track and clicked on the "From Selection" option. As you see, there is a gap between the section region and the Drums track. If that section is clicked the Drums track is selected correctly. At least I can live with this but would prefer to get the slots aligned flawlessly.
  14. Hello, In a new project , I created a midi track which ranges from 1:01:000 to 5:01:000. A section has been added and also ranges from 1:01:000 to 5:01:000. But when clicking that section, the selection ranges from 1:01:000 to 4:01:720. I tried my best and failed to understand where the problem occurs. Any help would be appreciated. Serge
  15. @Tez Up to now that seems to work fine with Kontakt player. @abacab Absolutely right, that's what I encountered and thought as a flaw instead of a crude technical reality, thanks for the insight
  16. Thanks both for your help. Maybe there is some tutorial that will instruct me about this matter.
  17. 'stand-alone' as running kontakt outside of Cakewalk, yes that is what I meant. An Orchestral composition requires many instruments and sections and load one Kontakt plugin per track maybe tricky to manage, especially with RAM limits and 16 midi channels. So, you can create multiple Cakewalk midi tracks (each having a specific midi input) targetting only one kontakt plugin having multiple instruments, each one dedicated to a specific midi output?
  18. Hello, I wonder if a Kontakt plugin could be loaded once having, let's say, 3 different instruments loaded into it, each one routed to a different midi channel. Then, into Cakewalk, 3 different tracks routed to Kontakt would be assigned to the 3 midi channels mapped into Kontakt midi channels. Or it is more advised to open Kontakt as standalone and avoid lots of plugins that could (maybe) eat memory and be harder to manage when using many orchestral instruments? Thanks for any hint.
