VIDEO: Cakewalk SONAR: Event Inspector Editing

Scott Garrigus demonstrates how to edit clips, notes, and data selections using the Event Inspector in Cakewalk SONAR. Versions 8.5 (and earlier) as well as X1 (and later) are covered. In addition, some advanced tips about using modifiers with the Event Inspector are included.

The Event Inspector is a special editing feature in Cakewalk SONAR, which allows you to edit the start time, duration, pitch, velocity, and channel of selected events in a project. It also works as a data indicator for single selected events by displaying their current start time, duration, pitch, velocity, and channel values. In addition, it can help with arranging entire data clips in the Track view...

Great video Scott!

This video was very helpful when I needed to change the midi note channels on a copied and pasted midi track but I could not figure out how to change the channels for the control events included in the track.

I use Sonar X1c PE x64 and I wanted to copy my existing midi track, of a played piano part, to another track and route it to a soft synth. I was able to select the clip and change the midi notes channels but the control CC#64 (sustain pedal) remained the same as the original track.

I have searched Sonar X1 Power, Sonar ref. guide, forums here and cakewalk, and using my search criteria I can't find anything about changing multiple control events.

I ended up using brute force and making all 284 changes one-at-a-time in the event list. Not fun at all. :)

Hope I have explained what I am trying to do. Any ideas or direction?

Kind regards,
Rick

Hi Rick,

Thanks! Glad you liked the video.

Yeah, that's weird. You would think the controller messages would be changed too.

Well, in that case, you need to use the Process > Find/Change function, which is the same thing as the Interpolate function from previous version, it just has a new name in X1.

Check out this article here on DigiFreq:

If you still have questions, feel free to post and I'll try to help.

Scott

The Find/Change does work. I really didn't know what/how to search/replace the control 64 channel # but after some playing I did get it to work and it is Much faster than changing a few hundred values one-at-a-time in the Event List...

I probably still need to give Cake a call and ask why the controller messages don't get changed when using the Event Inspector to change the midi note channels.

Thanks again for the Great Sonar X1 Power book, Videos, and your help.

Kind regards,
Rick Tucker

Hi Rick,

I think the Event Inspector is meant to only work with MIDI note events, that's why controller messages are not affected. Plus, the Event Inspector doesn't provide any parameters for controller messages, so it kind of makes sense.

The Find/Change function works with all events, but it's a bit more complicated to use. Glad you got it working.

And thanks! I'm glad you're enjoying the book and DigiFreq.

Scott

Great video Scott, thanks!

Initially I was tearing my hair out though when I tried to do the + thing - that only works using the + sign on the main part of the keyboard. If I use the + key on my number pad the field just wants to increment the number already in the field!

Hey John,

Thanks very much! Glad you enjoyed it. More are in the works.

Sorry about the confusion with the modifier keys. Normally, if the number pad keys are to be used, the material will specify that. It's usually safe to assume that an author is talking about the regular keyboard keys.

Scott
