I once had one of the older version of Cakewalk - Version 5.x, I believe.
That was about eight years ago. With that version of Cakewalk, I was able
to do some simple programming on a MIDI file. For example, if I had eight
tracks and I wanted to lower the volume on seven of those tracks but leave
the eighth track alone, I could write a simple text file and run it as a
sort of script. That is about a far as I ever got with the programming.
Later, after upgrading to a newer version of Windows - maybe 98 or 95, the
old Cakewalk version that I had no longer ran properly. So, I it was
necessary to buy new software. I bought Cakewalk Home Studio 2002. Home
Studio fit nice since I needed only a simple Sequencer/MIDI package, but I
lost my ability to write my little five line scripts to modify volumes etc.
Recently, I saw SONAR 3.0 Studio Edition at the Cakewalk site for $149 to
registered Cakewalk Home Studio customers. I can afford $149.
The question is, will I be able to write my little programs to set the
volumes of certain tracks to a given % of the original volume of each track
(or something like that) with SONAR Studio Edition 3.0.
I know that I can set the volume on each track individually with Home
Studio - I don't want to do it that way.
