Cakewalk CAL Template
Cakewalk CAL Template Changes MIDI Note Numbers
by Tony Decap (001107 MMD)

In response to Craig Smith's request for help I include an empty CAL template that can be easily adapted to change any one scale to an other.  Some explanation is included.  If needed, I can provide any CAL program.

As CAL is limited, not all edits imaginable are possible.  That's why I am now working on MIDI-FX, a feature in Cakewalk (that is supposed to work on other music programs if supported) that has many more possibilities, including non-destructive (real-time) editing.  This means that the MIDI track is processed in real-time before output, so that you can hear the result without changing the actual track.  Changing the actual track can then be done at any time by pressing a button.

This is, for example, very handy if you want to work in real-time on an organ that has a drum set.  These notes must be forwarded in time.  So you can put them on the exact musical spot, and the MIDI-FX will offset the timing for you in real time.

Best regards,

;Leeg template CAL programma om noot nummers te veranderen.
;Empty template CAL for changing note numbers.

;Zet een ..... om naar een ..... (vul in)
;Changes a .....key to a .....key organ (fill in)

;Hoe dit Cal programma invullen?:
;Het eerste cijfer in elke zin is de noot die veranderd zal worden
;Op het einde van elke zin, net VOOR het sluitend haakje, vul je de
;noot in welke het moet worden. Voorbeeld:
;				18	(= Note.Key 115)
;Dit wil zeggen dat noot 18 veranderd wordt in noot 115.
;Als nu bv. noot 18 weg moet in plaats van een andere noot te worden,
;doe je het volgende:
;				18	(delete)
;(delete) wil zeggen verwijderen in het Engels.
;Denk eraan dat in computer de eerste noot 0 (nul) genoemd wordt.
;Dus de eerste noot (het dichtst tegen de giet) is noot 0.
;De tweede noot is noot 1, enz.
;Van de noten waarmee niets gebeuren moet, MOET je de hele zin verwijderen.

;How to use this CAL program?:
;The first digits in the sentence is the note that you want to change
;On the end of the sentence, just BEFORE the closing bracket, you must input
;the note # to which you want to change the note. Example:
;			18	(= Note.Key 115)
;This means that note # 18 is changed to note # 115
;If a note must be deleted in stead of changed, do the following:
;				18	(delete)
;You can insert extra notes if needed. Contact me at decap@ping.be for help if needed.
;DON'T LEAVE ANY LINE THAT HAS NO PURPOSE, AS AN ERROR WILL OCCUR. REMOVE LINES NOT USED.

;Best regards, Tony Decap.
