Hello again :)

Recommended Posts

A question for the developers, can you create a team, hide all midi tracks and show all midi tracks? Like the command that exists, hide all unselected tracks. Thanks.

You can already do this.

Press H to bring up the track Manager - Select the Midi toggle - Press Space to check / uncheck

I guess you could prgoram a one button macro for it if you wanted to

Вы уже можете это сделать.

Нажмите H, чтобы открыть диспетчер треков - выберите переключатель Midi - нажмите пробел, чтобы установить / снять отметку

Я думаю, вы можете запрограммировать для него макрос одной кнопкой, если хотите 

I know. These are four clicks and extra body movements.

PS - Вы должны попробовать изменить заголовки ваших сообщений на что-нибудь другое вместо "привет"

Может быть "FR: Hide All Midi Tracks"

yes sir :)

By a third party program? I'm new here

Autohotkey is a good tool to learn, not just for CbB.

It is a free scripting language.

A little time spent with it can be rewarding.

Here is an example showing how to toggle all MIDI tracks. When Cakewalk is the active window:

  • CTRL+b opens the Track Manager,
  • Selects all MIDI tracks,
  • Toggles their state and
  • Clicks OK

Note: the "Click" coordinates are based on my 1920x1080 monitor.

Quote

SetTitleMatchMode RegEx ;use regular expression pattern matching for titles
#If WinActive("ahk_exe i)Cakewalk.exe") 
^b::
{
  Send, h
  WinWait, Track Manager
  CoordMode, Mouse, Client
  Click, 353, 183
  Send, {Space}
  Click, 353, 50
  Return
}
#If

A macro creator within CBB would be amazing

It would be good if the devs could update CAL scripts.

They can be run in CbB.  However, they cannot be edited in CbB (You need a version of Cakewalk prior to 2002 for that)

Also, CAL scripts are generally used to programmatically manipulate MIDI events only.

That being said, I would be lost without them as I have written many complex custom CAL scripts that speed up my MIDI editing workflow by a lot.

I doubt CAL will be revived as it was deprecated 21 years ago.

This was discussed at length on the old forum when BandLab purchased Cakewalk IP.

It takes no special software to create/maintain CAL scripts. 

Any text editor will do.

StudioWare panels require a special editor.

Yeah, I know CALs are simple text files....  I just edit them in CPA9 so that I can test them in a Cakewalk like environment - being careful to avoid commands that crash CbB.   Same with StudioWare panels - I create/edit them in CPA9.  

At least CALS and StudioWare panels still open in CbB and should for a while yet (I confirmed this with CbB support).

Will CHS9 do that too, I wonder?

There is a CAL Editor online @Softpedia

Any editor with LISP syntax highlighting/formatting does about the same as the CAL Editor.

I use EMACS because it highlights and formats all the languages I have used over the decades.

The CAL editor does have a nice chm for CAL though.

The CAL Editor doesn't seem to work with Win10. It opens to a blank screen.

Works for me.

I did have to set the default Open/Save folder in preferences to populate the open dialog.

Thanks, that works. I also had to reset some things to stop the MS verify window from opening each time it's launched and for the CHM files to work.
