Hi Mike,


I think you probably ran the Split Notes to Tracks CAL file - give its
friend, Split Channels to Tracks a go and you might get a better result.
The former script is handy for breaking drum tracks out to individual
tracks, but most multi-part MIDI files have each part on a different MIDI
channel, so the latter script is more appropriate.  


Best wishes.

Hi List,


I'm trying to find a way to split up midi notes onto separate tracks so I
can import them into the Lime notation program. My brain doesn't think one
part at a time when I'm composing music. I tried running a Cal script in
Sonar that was supposed to accomplish this, but I didn't get the results I
wanted; perhaps I did something wrong, but I really don't think I did. It
split the notes all right, but it created a whole bunch of tracks with notes
on each track. It didn't retain each voice as a single unit. When I
experimented with it, I had written a dummy piece where I played four parts
in. What I was hoping to get when I ran the Cal script was four tracks with
each part on a track; but instead I ended up with something like 19 tracks
with a note or two on each track. I couldn't play anything back at that
point as it crashed Sonar.


Does anyone have suggestions as to how I can accomplish this correctly, or
is it an impossible task at this point?
