ReaCWP / Re: REA-CWP installation video

Great video, thanks!

One comment. Once CWP is opened, Reaper use all corresponding audio files directly. When Reaper project is saved, depending from options, these filed can be moved instead of copied. So to be on safe side, I would recommend to make a copy of the original Sonar project folder before conversion.
ReaCWP / REA-CWP installation video
« Last post by gadeuvall2000 on March 13, 2018, 12:12:03 PM »
I created a video showing exactly how to install the REA-CWP  plugin and use it and what it does when you open a Cakewalk SOnar project.   I tried to explain some of the things that happen, and did my best to cover the basics, however of course to find all the information you need, please see the about thread and the changelog thread on this forum.   Thank you

Here's the video.

Take lanes / comping:
Comments (difference in behavior and conversion decisions):
- Take lanes in Sonar can be perceived as a set of tracks always routed to the parent track. With own solo/mute status and own name. All Clips are put one some Take lane.
- Starting with X3, Take lanes can also be used for Comping with a set of associated operations. In several words, comping tools allow quick split clips on all take lanes and making one of them sound while other are mutes. Also the splitting point can be slip edited and another clip can be selected as sounding. Old ( "free" ) use of take lanes is still possible.
- There is no Take lanes in Reaper, at least not as a property of track. But there are other options for that purpose:
 a) since Reaper support sub-tracks and by default they are routed to the "folder" track, creating such structure can imitate take lanes in Sonar, except for comping. Waveform picture is propagated to the folder track. The only disadvantage I have found so far is that Solo does not function as  Solo of take lanes in Sonar, as for an ny track it is "global".
 b) Reaper allow to work with overlapping clips convenient by showing them on separate visual lanes. There is no explicit control on which lane the clip appears, these lines are pure visual and have no influence on the project structure
 c) there can be Takes inside items (clips).  That is Reaper way for comping. But only for comping. That means: only one take can be "active", all other are "inactive"; take always has the length of the item, so no take can "cross" the border of the item. That means not all clips on Sonar Take lanes can be converted to Takes inside Reaper items. But for comped clips, that is (so far theoretically) possible.
- when comping in Sonar, it is possible to cross-fade on splitting points while still have the possibility to slip edit it. In Reaper, cross-fade on split can be set. But slip editing cross-fade splits is not possible (or I have not found how). That only means that after split without cross-fade, the split point can be moved (simultaneously for left and right items). While after split with cross fade, left or right items can be slip edited, but not simultaneously.
- For clarity: comping in Sonar is a special set of tools on top of Take lanes while comping in Reaper means switching between takes inside one clip while all other operations are "normal". F.e. comping split in Sonar is "special", comping split in Reaper is just normal clip split. But there are many helpful operation to implode and explode takes and a possibility to save names comps.
Control Surfaces/ACT / Re: FCB1010

If you just need select one from 10 tracks, the action list for each button should be:
Code: [Select]
Strip / Track / First in WAI  +N
Function / Select strip
Where "+N" is required number (+0... +9)

For correct WAI, create a control not associated with any button ("Init") and put:
WAI / 10 / 0 / 0 , Width only, Initial
Control Surfaces/ACT / FCB1010

Looking for some advice on how to use a FCB1010 as a track select device.  It has 10 foot switches per bank. for some reason i can only get 8 track selects no matter which setting I try.

Anyone got a good track select preset for this device?

Plug-ins replacement:
- ProChannel QuadEQ -> ReaEQ, see comments

Comments (difference in behavior and conversion decisions):
- it is clear that exact sound from 2 distinct plug-ins is impossible to get
- with big support from Cool, who has proposed such conversion, found matching numbers and has spent time to spot my bugs in the implementation, we have reached some reasonable conversion level for QuadEQ to ReaEQ, with the following limitations:
 a) we was working with Hybrid type only
 b) converted LPF and HPF in most cases do not sound as before. The implementation algorithms and parameter ranges are too different to match
 c) at the moment, only Gain automation is converted into Gain and Bandwidth envelopes (to match the sound, the Bandwidth has dependency from Gain). Frequency can be converted (let me know if you need that).  Note that envelopes have fixed limits in positive Gain and upper Bandwidth, while preset support brighter range for these parameters. So Gain envelope can be correctly converted only for Gain under +12dB and Q greater then 0.5.

If it is in picture format, you can attach it here. Otherwise please upload it somewhere and let me know the link.

I hope you are doing good.

So I have a map I would like to create on the X TOUCH MINI. If I could get this done it will be perfect for my work. Shall I attach it here? Can I contact you via email?

Kein Problem, ich kann das erst am WE testen, mein Studioamp ist in Reperatur, der hat angefangen zu brummen.....

Melde mich alsbald!

Sorry, I have not understood what you want :(

I attach a preset. Theoretically it should change current track volume from the fader and toggle mute from the switch.
I hope that we can use as start. Check that there is some reaction and let me know what exactly you want when the fader/switch are operated.
