press button> Transpose-How to create a Hotkey?

Recommended Posts

Don't want to menu hop, or PRV.
What method would allow to make a Hotkey (Shortcut Key?)

press button> Transpose +12
press button> Transpose - 12

Process> Transpose
...also I can see the little underscore but what key combo is used to access the "n"?

I set mine to alt + t

Preferences > Customization > Keyboard Shortcuts

Set the Area filter to Global Bindings, scroll down to Process > Transpose

Select the desire key combination from the left hand list, then hit Bind & Ok

You can also add this to the custom module in the Control Bar

I have made 2 CAL Files for that and keybound it to Ctrl+(numpad 2/numpad 8 ) cause These are the shortcuts for semitone Up or down in PRV. I can send the CAL Files tomorrow morning.....

Hi:)

Here are the 2 CAL Scripts, copy them to 

%Your_Driveletter%:\Cakewalk Content\Cakewalk Core\CAL Scripts\

and bind them to Ctrl+ Numpad8 and Numpad2, so you have 

 

Numpad2 - note(s) 1 semitone down

Ctrl+Numpad2 - note(s) 1 octave down

Numpad8 - note(s) 1 semitone up

Ctrl+Numpad8 - note(s) 1 octave up

 

I use this very often and much faster than Alt+T,(-)12, Return.

How do you bind a keystroke to a specific CAL script?

You select a note(notes) and press Ctrl+Numpad8, it can't go faster! I have even note lenghts on a hotkey, so I Loop a section , go from note to note with TAB(shift-TAB) and change them with Numpad 2,8(semitone+-), Ctrl+Numpad2,8(octave+-), Nudge Keys, Shift+Left/right(note length) and Ctrl+Plus/Minus(Velocity).

 

For me the perfect way to work if I have to make a Brass Section or Strings or just some Melodies or Basses.......

@winkpain

In the Settings- Hotkeys in the global bindings scroll down near to the end just before "Studioware Files" of type in "Transpose" for to see the Transpose CAL.

Then bind it with a Key, for me Ctrl+Numpad 8 and 2 work best!

 

Bassman.

P.S. In the Cloud Link I've uploaded CALs for Note Length and Velocity

Note_Length_+10.cal Note_Length_-10.cal Transpose -12.cal Transpose +12.cal Velocity +3.cal Velocity -3.cal Velocity -1.cal Velocity +1.cal

@Heinz Hupfer These are great! Certainly faster than Ctrl-T > type "12" > Enter  !

Thanks so much for sharing! I don't see the semi-tone transpose scripts, but easy enough to take it from here.

Thanks again!

The Standard Shortcuts  for Semitone Up/Down in Cakewalk are Numpad 8/2. CAL Script not needed....

O, got it. I'm on a laptop with no Numpad. But no worries I'm working it out.
