Hi all

I’m sure that those that use Cakewalk by bandlab will know that when you start Cakewalk it will turn Local off on your keyboard, this is great as it stops the old doubling of note problem.
Trouble is it does not turn local back on when you exit (BIAB does this seamlessly)
Has anyone found a fix for this, apart that is from creating a simple midi file with the correct cc to implement before closing. This is not a lot better than having to go to the keyboards settings and do it manually after exit.
I notice Jim Fogel has responded to this in the cakewalk forum but don’t see a solution.
Any more thoughts Jim, anyone?
Mike

In CW that done in the "TTSseq.ini" file that is only scanned (applied) at CW start-up

https://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=SONAR&language=3&help=Playback.36.html


so you can remove that line and manually set local control (on/off) on HW synth or construct either a .syx file or better yet a .CAL script to send the specific Local Control On (or off) to your synths and send it before shutting down CW or when ever


The controller number for local on/off is 122

I have an old CAL script here that sends controller data if you want I can email it to you PM me - or if you have the old cal scripts from the old CAL contest winner set - it was called "c-ntrolr.cal" it's only 6KB

Larry




EDIT UPDATE

Here is the SCRIPT (start from first semi-colon'ed line down to where it says "NIL"
save the text in a file call it "whatever you want.CAL"

then run it as a Process in CW before shutting down

HI

Thanks all,
yes I don’t have a problem with it switching local off when I start Cakewalk, I am pleased it does.

Just wish it tuned it back on when you exited automatically, without having to run cals or do it manually.
Thanks for your input on this.
Mike
