Performance playback of Arranger Sections

Recommended Posts

Leverage the matrix engine with the arranger track so we can trigger and playback sections of a song with a midi device.  The arranger features allows for multiple different arrangements, but doesn't allow for spontaneity during the performance of a song.  being able to assign arranger sections to a midi device and trigger its playback in sync with time will be very beneficial to those who would like to perform live with Cakewalk.   The logic of when a sections changes after the new section is triggered should be based on where in musical time the new section starts.  If a new triggered section starts on the "a" of 4, then the section should change on the "a" of 4. If it starts on the "1" then it should change to the new section on the down beat.  Some of these features are already available in the matrix view. These features will be more useful with arranger track sections.

Would be cool posibility to drop arranger section to Matrix view by taking section and drop it on arranger view its posible already if select all section and drop it on matrix view. Also  would be cool possibility to play matrix view in midi track.

Yes, I tested dragging the selected arrangement into the matrix view.  It created the tracks, but doesn't maintain the arrangement of the clips rendering it unplayable.  For it to work, all clips have to be the same length.  This is not always the case in an arrangement, and that's additional work to make every clip the same length before dragging it into the matrix view.

`Yes would be cool if it will work with arranger section drop and also would be cool when clicking on matrix cell where midi clip midi can be openen in independent piano roll for editing midi of matrix view cell. But anyway idea is very good to get working it properly when droping arrangement section to matrix view. : )

Yes please.  I recently watched some youtube videos about Studio One's show page feature and would love that capability.  It seems like it would be a logical next step for arranger and simultaneously be a good replacement for the dated CBB playlist.  I think this is something that people really want.  Has anyone checked that out?
