DragAndRun for Cakewalk Sonar has been designed to make music faster and better. Simply described it's a GUI handling buttons which, when clicked, load a CAL file for execution. Already more then 30 powerful CAL files are offered with DragAndRun.
Here is the almost silent Mercury piece from Holst. Unlike the loud Mars, Mercury is carved with fine details and runs. This appeared to be a nice challenge to render with an orchestral library. You can see in the midi file that a lot of CC#11 and CC#7 have been applied in order to give expression without the mechanical feeling.
This piece has been rendered with the EWQLSO Gold XP library but don't get fooled, any library will shine with a DragAndRun application
Also is this exclusive to Sonar?
All versions of Cakewalk Sonar and Home Studio using CAL script files.
You are right about CAL. I programmed many CAL files for my own needs but calling them from keyboard shortcuts was not productive specially when they need many input parameters to be entered from keyboard. With my tool you call the CAL file from a button where all the keyboard inputs are sent in one shot. This way you can parameter your tools the way you want in any number of buttons you want.
