Chapter 15. CAL 101 > Running a CAL Program

Running a CAL Program

Because all CAL programs are different, I can’t explain how to use them in one all-encompassing way. When you run a CAL program, it usually asks you for some kind of input, depending on what the program is supposed to do and how it is supposed to manipulate your music data. But you can still follow this basic procedure to run a CAL program:

  1. Select the track(s) (or data within the tracks) in the Track view that you want the CAL program to edit. This first step is not always necessary; it depends on the task the CAL program is supposed to perform. It also depends on whether the CAL program was written to process only selected data in a project or all the tracks in a project. The only way to determine the function of a CAL program is to view it with Windows Notepad, which you’ll learn about later in this chapter.

  2. Choose Process > Run CAL to display the Open dialog box.

  3. Choose the CAL program you want to run and click on Open.
