Software Description

Welcome to the exciting new Midi WorkShop add-on for SAWStudio! The Midi WorkShop requires SAWStudio, SAWStudioLite, or SAWStudioBasic as a host. The Midi WorkShop's interface is designed to work in a way consistent with the SAWStudio environment, maintaining similar keystrokes wherever applicable, and creating an exciting new way to display and work with MIDI data.

The Midi WorkShop has 128 MIDI tracks arranged in its own MultiTrack view, separate from the SAWStudio MultiTrack, but locked to all SAWStudio MultiTrack cursor movements. It has the ability to maintain its own vertical and horizontal zoom levels while still maintaining precise synchronization with SAWStudio MultiTrack audio data.

The Midi WorkShop has its own set of workspace views, similar to SAWStudio's F-Key workspace views. These can work independently or be linked to SAWStudio's F-Key or Alt-F-Key views, giving extreme flexibility for viewing and working with MIDI and audio data simultaneously.

A richly designed piano keyboard graphic offers extended flexibility as an effective visual reference to musical data, and as a miniature built-in controller for auditioning MIDI patches.

The Patch Library view window offers a unique and powerful approach to organizing and accessing thousands of MIDI patches across all installed MIDI sound modules, along with unlimited grouping capabilities, making auditioning and selecting patches a breeze!

A unique measure mapping feature allows freeform performances to be easily and instantly mapped to a measure grid, which automatically calculates tempo variations, and allows for perfect Conductor/Click Track creation. The data may then be set or averaged into a perfectly smooth performance, allowing easy orchestration or quantizing of added data in perfect time.

The Midi WorkShop can import and export standard MultiTrack MIDI files, allowing complete compatibility with other MIDI sequencer and notation programs. Move MIDI data data between programs with ease!

The ability to combine MIDI performances with audio performances in the same workspace offers incredible creative possibilities to both the audio engineer and musical composer.

New in v1.7f

  • Patch Changes in the Library View are now allowed during Rec/Rdy Mode, to facilitate the live monitoring enhancements in the newer SAWStudio versions.
  • Step Draw can now be toggled on and off by pressing the D-Key.
  • Step Draw mode now creates undo files for each note added.
  • Step Draw mode now allows you to delete a note by Right-Clicking on the note, without the need to exit Step Draw mode.
  • When adjusting the speed of the auto step advance in Step Rec mode, pressing Ctrl and clicking the minus zone of the Step Rec switch sets the speed back to zero for single note auto advance operation.
  • Importing and Blending Midi Files now auto scale and center the MIDI data on each track so all MIDI notes are visible.
  • Blending Midi Files now responds to the starting cursor position and offsets data from there. If the starting cursor position is past the end of the current data, then new tempo data is included in the blend, otherwise tempo data is ignored.
  • Enhanced cursor lock and positioning between SAWStudio and MWS during Live Mode. Requires SAWStudio 4.7 or higher or SAWStudioBasic 2.1 or higher.
  • Enhanced the Controller Display chase to operate in Live Mode.
  • A new option has been added to the popup Time Signature menu called Set New Time Signature Entry Within Range. This option allows you to mark a range of measures ( do so with the grid ON) and change the time signature for that range without disturbing the rest of the composition outside the range. All measure numbers and tempo and time signature changes will remain the same for following existing data. Midi data will be pushed or pulled into proper alignment. If the change adds beats to the existing range area, the beats will be added at the end of the range leaving original data intact. If the change deletes beats from the existing range area, the data will be deleted from the end of the range. Most likely data transitions at the end of the range will have to be re-composed, but all existing data outside the range will remain intact.
  • A new enhancement has been added that will automatically fix stuck notes that are missing Note-Off data. If you see a note stretching across a track with no off position, you can click on it, as if to select it as the active note and it will sense and correct the missing Note-Off data by cutting the note duration to the current Grid Note value.
  • A new option has been added to the Options Menu called Global Midi-In Chan Filter. This option allows you to filter all incoming MIDI data down to a specific MIDI chan if desired. If set to a single chan, all incoming data not on that chan will be discarded. This can be helpful with certain MIDI keyboard controllers that send multi-chan MIDI data at the same time causing possible stuck notes and missing Note-Off data. This setting can be saved in the preferences.
  • Fixed the Major / Minor Scale color display option.
  • Fixed code that could damage time signature changes in measures that already contained tempo changes.
  • Fixed code to trap mouse-click control adjustments from crashing looped playback under certain conditions.
  • Fixed code to trap for crashes caused by dragging the mouse with the left button down into the top client area of the MT while in Step Rec mode.
  • Fixed code to properly set note length when holding a note during the Auto Step Rec Advance mode, when the advance speed is set to single note advance.
  • Fixed code to correct for different tick resolutions when blending MIDI files.
  • Fixed code to trap and correct for illegal tick resolutions when importing MIDI files.
  • Fixed code for more accurate MIDI file export and import of tempos.
  • Fixed code to trap and correct for illegal tempo and time signature entries when importing MIDI files.
