When working with MIDI files some preferences are not saved.

Recommended Posts

I have to continually reset:

-Metronome Count in.
-Metronome Midi Note.
-Local Snap to Grid settings in the PRV (number of ticks).
-Recording Mode (overwrite).
-Track View/Midi: Show Velocity check box.


Does anyone know if there is a way to make these persist?  
After the first twenty times of resetting them, it starts to get a bit annoying.

That's odd. Is this affecting both projects and project templates, or just a particular project? Most of those settings are different than what I typically use, especially the MIDI metronome. It shouldn't matter but it's a bit unusual, so that would be the first thing I'd want to check.

Any particular reason you're not using the audio metronome - don't like the sounds on offer?

When you're saving, are you saving as MIDI files or as Cakewalk by Bandlab (*.CWP) files ? 

On that list of things you mention, MID files would not contain those items.  To save those items, you need to save as a native CWP file.

Yup. Plus, metronome count-in is per project, so you may want to set preferences that are per project, in a project template, so when you start a new project using that project template, those settings will all be set the way you want.

That's gotta be it. I overlooked the key word 'files' in the title.

In a project, also if you use only midi clips, at the end you have to save it as project file (cwp).

It's better if you use for all your projects a template file with all your preferred settings.

In this way every time you open a new project you'll have your preferred settings ready.

I think I'll try saving projects as CWP files and every now and then as a MIDI file to satisfy my illogical desire to be pure MIDI.

That will be less work than constantly readjusting all the settings.

Thanks for the help/comments.

I realized after posting that this explains why you don't use the audio metronome.
