    I'm too on that version. There was a typo in my previous reply sorry. It should be Ctrl+Right Mouse Click and Drag. 

    Doesn't work, it opens the Note Properties window. Thanks.

    Thanks John for the trick, useful if, and only if, only want same values notes.

    It's fine, a workaround has been found as explained in my second post.

  2. I drawn some Midi CC events (CC1 Modulation, CC7 Volume, CC11 Expression, CC10 Panning) into the piano roll. Vsti plugins sometimes respond well to some while been not affected at all by other CC changes . Also changing the velocity value into the Event List has no effect on Kontakt player.

    SampleTank 3        : Event List Velocity, Yes   |   CC11, No    |   CC7, No    |   CC10, No    |   CC1, No
    Kontakt player 6  : Event List Velocity, No    |   CC11, No    |  CC7, Yes    |   CC10, Yes   |   CC1, Audio Engine dropout
    Real Guitar 5         : Event List Velocity, Yes    |   CC11, Yes   |  CC7, Yes   |   CC10, No     |   CC1, Yes

    I don't see how to manage a problem that is not evenly distributed among those plugins. Any suggestion is welcome.

  3. You could try the Guitar tab into Caller.

    1- Select one note into the piano roll and move the time ruler somewhere along that selected note.

    2- Into Caller set attack motif, strumming and mode (Yellow lists).

    3- Then click on the Chord pattern (Green list ) to create that chord into Cakewalk. The patterns, like C4, etc.,  allow to create that chord differently.

    yeah, what Collin says, better watch the whole video, it's in you favor

    Articulation Maps will do all you're asking, it is a time saving feature and will give you better visual overview (and it does trigger keys)

    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 :)

    watch the video posted above from minute 8:00

    same goes about transpose or any other processing

    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.

  6. 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 :)

  7. 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.

    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.
        - 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!

  8. 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.
