Has anyone compiled a list of what RealTracks/Library/Holds… folders correspond to what instruments?
and if so where can I get it?
Thanks...

Does my question make sense?

I would like to import a particular "hold" into a Cakewalk Sonar project...
I know where they are... but they're numbered, not labeled...
I need a list of which instruments correspond to which Library/Hold folder #

I could do this myself, but it would take quite a lot of time... 173 Holds_### folders
I'm hoping someone has already done it.

It must exist at PG Music, but to my knowledge, we users do not have access to it.

Wishlist?

Wishlist... good suggestion, but that could take a lot longer than compiling the list myself...
If I have to do it myself, I will, and I'll certainly share it with the forum.

It would be very helpful to me and to others I'm sure.

Thanks Matt...

A workaround might be to hit New in BB and then enter the chord you want held, with the right Rested instruments assigned, then invoke a RealTrackk on some free track and generate just the hold for Export or Drag 'n Drop to your DAW software.

In the RT picker dialog, there is a column on the far right side labeled Holds. I think those number are the folders containing the hold.

For RD, those are defined in the .txt files found in the specific RD folder. The BIAB manual has the details on this.

I apologize for not mentioning the info in the final column of RealTrack selecting. Kudos as always to Rachael. I had incorrectly assumed from your third post that you knew of this, because without that info, I didn't think this job could be done by a user at all.

The good news is that about one-fifth of the RealTracks do not use holds (or PG Music hasn't provided them yet; they keep updating and improving). The bad news is that a few use more than one.

I also would like to see a numbered list of which holds belong to which RTs. 2546 plays 119 holds ... a banjo sound. Trying to find the right folder is too time consuming without a list ... F

So as mentioned above the holds used are listed in the holds column in the real track picker.
Location
X:\bb\RealTracks\Library\Holds
X:\bb\RealTracks\Direct Input\Library\Holds

A list of what guitar is being played for Holds_1 Holds_2 . .
and what guitar is being played for each real track would help.

Holds are 85bpm

To create a holds list
click the holds column to list the holds in order
in the real track pick choose copy list
save the txt
open excel or open office
open the txt file
import using tab delimiter
delete the rows without holds
delete the columns other than holds
now you have a list the you can search



To change holds used open soloist dialog

what you could try is if you have a certain RT loaded, and you know the RT number, follow these steps to find the corresponding holds number (at 5 in red), PS don't OK save anything unless you know what you're doing ! ... :
