RE: loop trigger in Sonar (Greetings, and a question about sampling/chopping)


Thanks for your question. 

No it's not a key binding thing at all. Cyclone is a new soft synth, it's
key mapping basically just assigns sounds to the MIDI notes that the synth
responds to.

RE: The Behringer question, I'll need to forward this to someone in 
I know in SONAR 2.0 we have a learn mode that allow you to automate and
control SONAR with any MIDI-compatible hardware controller, so you could
probably achieve what you are looking for with that.  Not sure about doing
it in earlier versions of the program.

Let me know if I can answer anything else.

Best regards,

Carl mentioned:

Does the ability to trigger loops that you mention depend on the 'MIDI key
bindings' feature?

If so, doesn't that mean a 'shift' note on value must be sent in 
with any MIDI note trigger?

I ask because I was recently looking into using the Behringer FCB1010 to
control Sonar for other reasons (start/stop recording) but ran into a 
because it appears the MIDI key bindings require the use of a 'shift' 
meaning I would need to send 2 note values to trigger an event, but the 
only sends one per press.

I was wondering how to work around this, but haven't come up with an 
I thought perhaps sending a note on to put it in shift mode and leaving it
that way for subsequent actions might work but I haven't tried that yet.

thanks for any light you can shed on this.
