Master Presets

One of the most effective uses I’ve found for CAL is in creating what I like to call Master Presets. As I mentioned in Chapter 8, SONAR lets you save the settings for some of its editing functions as presets. This way, you can use the same editing parameters you created simply by calling them up by name, instead of having to figure out the settings every time you use a function.

Presets are a real timesaver, but unfortunately, you can save presets only for each of the individual functions. What if you want to combine a few of the functions to create a certain editing process? For example, suppose you like to shorten your MIDI tracks before you quantize them. To do so, you need to select the tracks, use the Length function, and then use the Quantize function to process your tracks. For each of the editing functions, you have to make the appropriate setting adjustments. If you create a CAL program to automatically run through the process for you, though, all you need to do is select your tracks and run the CAL program.
