Rename Midi CC and Midi CC lane drawing facilities

Recommended Posts

I am pretty ready to come back to Cakewalk (I used Sonar 20 years) with great pleasure  because you now introduce articulation maps which was the big failure of previous versions for midi composers as me. And you also added the possiblity to use Cubase expression maps which is very pleasant... . ... it is a relevant feature with new huge libraires but to join the current leader for that kind of DAW usage (which is Reaper, but little bugged) you have to add two new features :

- Capability to rename midi CC : with some libraries (Chris Hein, Vienna Sl...) , we may use about 30 midi CC to manage the sound of our Vsti . It is clearly impossible to remind all midi cc assignation except if you have an elephant memory !. The solution introduced in Reaper is to offer the capability to each VSTi to have its own midi cc mapping (added with note mapping used for drum maps) . With this feature, we don't see midi cc21 and cc34 for example, we see "vibrato" and "Tremolo"..... which is clearly better for the user

- Capability to draw midi cc lane with bezier curve or envelppe curves... as in Reaper and now in Cubase 11...

I hope you will add these new relevant features as soon as possible... With these, Cakewalk could be the refereed DAW for midi composers because, if we compare to the current reference which is Reaper, cakewalk is more stable, and Cakewalk has a relevant channel strip... The Reaper's one is not at the good level and must clearly be improved...

Renaming can be great.

You can't do it in PRV, but you can use curves in Track View with Automation Lanes for any MIDI CC. Maybe Inline PRV could work for you for this purpose. You can convert MIDI Controller to the Automation Lane if you want to use existing ones. But if we had curves in PRV, yeah it would be great too.

You can actually rename CC controllers globally - but they are just that, global.  The idea to have specific CC name mappings per VSTi would be excellent.

While Bezier curves for CCs are not possible at this time, the PRV transform tool is probably the closest we have at the moment.
