I'm using Sonar 3.1.1 PE. Sometimes I record the midi controllers CC1 with my keyboard and sometimes I find it easier to enter midi shapes with Sonar's envelopes tool. It is easy to convert any midi events in Sonar into envelopes by using the "Convert midi to shapes" command on the edit menu.
Now here is the problem I find: How do I convert the envelope shapes back into midi controller events?
One workaround I found is to save the file and then save it again as a midi file. When I import the midi file back into Sonar the envelopes are nicely converted into midi envelpes, but isn't there a shorter way around this somewhere?
PS. So why does this method not work? One problem I found with my method above is that I forget to save the file the next time using "Save As". By just using the "Save" command I save the file next time again as a midi file and in the process I loose all my GPO settings etc.
