About Me

  1. To prevent SessionDrummer 3 from inadvertently triggering a drum fill pattern, I have a full length note in PRV on the "OFF" key. When the note reaches measure 258 in length on a 4/4 beat pattern, it no longer responds to the mouse when zoomed in. Can't select it. Can't stretch it. Nothing. There are similar issues with CC values where they simply disappear when reaching a certain length. I can break them up into smaller lengths, but is there a limit to how long a MIDI note/CC can be? Or is this a Zoom bug?
  2. Edit > Select by Time operates on tracks selected in the track view which can be more than just the one you have enabled for editing in the PRV, depending on how you switched views. When I want to select a time range in PRV, I usually just right-click and drag to lasso with or without snap enabled which will limit the selection to the the track that currently has focus in the PRV.
  3. Currently we have the option to hide notes in muted clips in the Piano Roll View. I would like to also have the option to also hide notes in muted lanes in the PRV. Same use case for having the muted clips hidden, just extending that courtesy for when I have an entire TAKE I want to mute, which I do with the Mute button in the lane header. I seem to repeatedly follow this path: Record a few MIDI takes Notice that the performance I want to focus on is in a particular one Mute the other takes Open the PRV for some note nudgin' and.... Wonder why there are multiple notes stacked upon each other Flip back to Track View, mute all clips in already muted lanes Is there any reason not to have the option (option option OPTION) to hide the notes in muted take lanes? I mean other than "no way, bakers shuld use their code hours to write a chord track not protect lamerz, git gud or go home."
  4. I'm sorry not to have stated clearly enough the problem. It is the operation found (in track view) under the "Edit" menu: "Select", "By Time" that gives me difficulty from the piano roll window. The way "select by time" works is to give a pop up window allowing entry of bar numbers for start and end of the selection. I use the shortcut key FROM A PRV WINDOW very frequently to select a set of bars often far different than what is visible on the Timeline (which is why selecting by clicking on the timeline is not very useful). It is this operation, or some usable work around, that I'm hoping to find. Some way to select a group of bars for a limited set of tracks, those in use in the PRV .. I don't have an active version of the old Sonar right now, but I'm pretty sure it worked this way during those days: from within a PRV (which then could be set to include ONLY certain tracks) select by time gave the selection for just those certain tracks.
  5. As best I can figure out, CbB/Sonar doesn't like when the start of a note is more than about 64 measures off-screen. At minimum zoom with the PRV at maximum width and no keyboard, I can get 740 measures on-screen, and I can manipulate a note that's 804 measures (740 + 64) long; but as soon as I scroll far enough out to see the end of it, the start is now over 64 measures off screen, and I can no longer edit it in the PRV and have to resort to the Event List or scroll back to nearer the start time.
  6. In PRV, holding the Alt key invokes the Scissor (note lower half) & Eraser (note upper half) tool cursor which are used when Left-clicking. However, holding the Alt key when Right-clicking Moves/Copies notes between tracks in PRV, but still uses the same cursors which is confusing because you're not sure what's going to happen next. Is this unavoidable because of the Alt key?
  7. May have mentioned these in the past but these 2 issues have persisted for years thru every version of Sonar/CbB. I don't change any settings and they seem to happen at will. Using Ctrl+C & Ctrl+V 1. Sometimes pasted notes don't go to the intended track. They (1) end up on another track, or (2) disappear completely even tho "Undo Paste" is in the Edit list. Normally I can select the target track with the PRV Track list, but not always. When that fails, sometimes I have to switch to Track View and Select & Focus the intended track for it to paste there. Sometimes even this does not work and the note simply doesn't paste. 2. Pasted note clips should only be as long as the notes themselves but about 50% of the time they will paste with a new full length clip. Is this intended behavior?
  8. Select all notes that you want to effect in either TV or PRV and using the Event Viewer Module [on the Control Bar]; click in the <duration> field and enter 98% (or similar) to shorten all data by a few ticks. This works well for notes that are quantized and/or justified on the same number so they don't overlap each other.
  9. On my test project with a 96:01:000 measure long note, the off screen measure point reached 64:04:049 when the note was no longer selectable the 1st time. On a 2nd occasion it reached 66:03:056 before it was unselectable. So apparently no precise point where it happens. Zoom is about 55-60% with 9 measures showing in PRV. Kind of annoying but only a few projects affected by it so really not a big deal for me.... maybe for others tho.
  10. Perhaps this is a bug then, David: I carefully made sure a certain set of tracks was selected in Track View, then opened PRV, then verified the same set of tracks was selected in both, then used Edit-Select by -Time .. the selection of tracks changed to ALL tracks. Right-click and drag requires NOTES so it is impossible to select a group of controllers or patch changes or pitch wheel that come, as they generally do, BEFORE a certain note or notes.
  11. You might want to read up on the "Auto Focus" & "Auto Lock" button functions in the top right corner of the PRV. I cannot recreate your issue when those are properly adhered to.
  12. Funny this topic came up because I’m not liking the new layout at all. It never puts the last projects in the cue. I’ve ended up opening back up versions by mistake. I can’t put my finger on what it is that has made this worse than the Cakewalk version and I’m one to slowly get used to new things but it’s been over a month and I’m still hating this thing. The start screen and the inability to make the PRV background white are my only 2 complaints so far.
  13. EDIT: Not an issue. Thought I had restarted Sonar (as it says "Requires Restart"), but I may have just closed/reopened the project. After a complete Sonar restart the note blobs scale as well. Nice! Noticed one glitch with the Custom Scaling. When you go above 100% (at least on my 3840x2160) the PRV note names get cut off. Here is 100%: Here is 105% - the top of the note names get cut off. Maybe the note blobs need to scale as well?
  14. Request ability to Shrink/Stretch grouped PRV notes by Ctrl+Shift+Dragging both ends of the notes, like you can with Track View clips. Currently you Shrink/Stretch grouped PRV notes by Ctrl+Dragging either end of the notes. This works but is confusing when working between views. BTW, Shift+Dragging grouped notes makes them all the same length and only works on the left end of the group. EDITED
  15. I think that KeyAft events will become more important. For example, we build pipe organs and our new design is a smARTvalve which allows the pressure of each single pipe in the organ to be controlled individually. In midi V1, KeyAft is the only controller we can think of that can hold the information. The above suggestion of Promidi seems the way to go. Once you show the KeyAft information in the PRV, the "Key" selection should automatically switch to the selected note. As for the comment of msmcleod that the KeyAft information would become ghost information when the note's themself are deleted, I feel that KeyAft information is only available during a keypress from note/on till note/off, so it should be considered an integral part of that note and be deleted with it. All considered, I think that it should be very easy to implement this option in CW, as it is no different compared to the controller part: Controllers (already in place and working flawlessly in CWs PRV): select the control number, the control value is showed in the pane and can be edited with all the different tools. KeyAft (not implemented in CWs PRV yet): select the key number, the KeyAft value is showed in the pane and can be edited with all the different tools. I have no insight into the code of the CW program, but with me doing a lot of programming myself, it seems that it could be done in an hour, just duplicate the "Controller" item and add it to the list as "KeyAft", and re-associate the Controller-number to point to the Key number, and re-associate the Controller-Value to point to the KeyAft-Value. As for me, I'm really in need to have easy access to the KeyAft so that I can manipulate it with ease, so adding this function would be greatly appreciated.
  16. This feature request would be great to match any VST that uses Key switch or custom Key map settings. 1) PRV Multiple Custom Color Key Overlay and ability to change Each Key Color and Text. displayed over the Key Also 2) a toggle all note names off/on displayed on the Keys at all times, not just on Mouse over. ability to change the Key Color and Text. mouse Over? ...is their a better term than "mouse" in 2023? lol What do the kids call it these days? Mouse LC = Mouse Left Click MRC = Mouse Right Click MMC =
  17. I prefer not using Inline PRV because of this: PRV has no issues, we need the same note drawing standard in Inline PRV.
  18. Greetings, Is it really the case that the PRV track numbers have a 2 digit limitation? Am I the only one that sometimes uses more than 100 midi tracks in a project? Mousing over the numbers above 99 should at lease show a tool tip showing the full number? See Attached screen grab. Thank you! Steve Karl
  19. Currently, in the PRV controller lane, CC events on different MIDI channels require their own lane (in single lane controller mode). Can we please have an option where all CC's of a given controller can be displayed on a single lane, regardless of their MIDI channel> This was possible with Cakewalk Pro audio 9 (yes going back a bit) by setting the display MIDI channel to “All Channels” With the latest Cakewalk, “All Channels” for CC Event controller lanes has been removed. It would be great to get that back.
  20. Might be a feature or a Bug. KEY: Lc Mc Rc (Left, Middle, Right, mouse CLICK) In Piano Roll view, (the lower screen to edit Velocity, Wheel, etc.) PRV Controller lanes "Wheel" 1) Mc--> select Draw Tool "Sine" Trying to draw a sine wave pattern not working and Mc (Middle Click ) does not re-open tool options. 2) To open the right click menu again, Tool Options: Must Mc in the Piano Roll View to work again. The only Draw Tool that worked was "Freehand" and Line" I was trying to draw a sine wave pattern in the "Wheel" Controller Data.
  21. If there isn't already a way to turn on & off or bypass a MIDI track's controller lane, it would be nice to add it. Prefer individual CC lanes but even all lanes at once, so we can make quick A/B checks. A time consuming Convert to Envelopes could be a work-a-round, but not very efficient.
  22. The PRV has it's own filter button. AFAIK this is essentially a separate feature to the Track Manager, although it should respect the existing hidden status. It's not really about keeping the PRV in sync - it's a different beast to the Track View / Console View, as it's already filtering out audio tracks / aux tracks / buses - what it should be doing is applying its filter on top of the currently visible tracks. What isn't clear is what takes precedence... it seems to be taking it's cue from the Tracks View, which makes sense. But if the track is hidden in the Console View, but not hidden in the Tracks View should the track still be visible in the PRV? You may of course be just seeing a bug in the PRV filter in CbB. The Track Manager button required a bunch of reworking of the code behind the scenes - some of it got backported to CbB as it did fix some bugs, but it didn't get everything because the feature itself isn't there.
  23. The track manager doesn't keep the PRV in sync with the track view and anytime a track or folder is added, all of the user-defined filters get mangled! All of them! Because it doesn't keep the PRV in sync with the track view, I have to run two of the same filters, one on the track view and one on the PRV, in order to work with the same subset of tracks. Adding a folder or track also destroys all of the user-defined filters on the PRV as well. A search engine would be useful.
  24. Can this be done? Ability to move entire selected area freely. Also, stretch corners independent of each other like Photoshop Transform>Distort.
  25. In the PRV, when the Controller Pane is closed, when we select a Controller Event instead of Notes/Velocity, Smart Tool is not working as it is supposed to be like Drawing Tool. So I have to change from Smart Tool to Drawing Tool every time. I am requesting Smart Tool to work like Drawing Tool when editing a Controller Event on PRV.
