Default [Script] A couple of different MIDI note, CC and other scripts

Hey all, since moving from Cubase to Reaper, I was still missing some crucial functions for my work. I messed around a bit with ReaScript and added everything that was missing for me. New scripts will be added over time.

The script are available via my ReaPack repository:
Code:
https://github.com/StephanRoemer/ReaScripts/raw/master/index.xml

Important notes:
Most of my scripts depend on the MIDI Function package. So, to use my scripts
check this package for install in the ReaPack manager. This has a huge advantage, since the scripts consist only of a couple of lines of code. They are tailored that way, that you can easily adjust parameters yourself. E.g. if you are missing a Delete CC32 you can easily edit a Delete CC script and only adjust the destCC variable in the script and save it as Delete CC32. Same goes for the quantize script. You can adjust the grid, humanize factor, swing off/on and swing amount.

Also for Add VSTi and replace existing VSTi you need to install "Add or replace VSTi".
Be sure to select it in ReaPack, if you want to use these scripts. As with the MIDI scripts, you can easily modify them by changing the variables.


Initial post: (edited this post to reflect all included scripts)
Quote:
So, here are my first two scripts I've been working on.
Something that I used to use regularly in Cubase:

Select MIDI notes before and after edit cursor. I hope it's helpful for some of you. It works in the arrangement, as well as in the MIDI Editor and therefore also in the Inline Editor.

Script demos (right click the GIF and select "show image" to zoom)



2017-12-12
Select notes before / after editor cursor (there's also delete notes before / after cursor)
  • select all notes, that are located before the edit cursor Position
  • this script works in arrangement, MIDI Editor and Inline Editor
  • for obvious reasons, this script only works with a single item and will popup a message box, if you have more than one item selected





2017-12-12
Delete short notes
  • deletes leftover short notes, that are created, when splitting (on grid) notes that are not hard quantized (humanized)
  • this script works in arrangement, MIDI Editor and Inline Editor
  • adjust the length of shortnote in the user area. To get an idea which values are typical for short notes, enable the ShowConsoleMsg near the end of the script





2017-12-13
Select, delete and move CCs
  • these scripts select, delete and move CC in various ways
  • these scripts work in arrangement, MIDI Editor and Inline Editor





2017-12-15
Transpose notes +/- X
  • these scripts transposes either all notes or selected notes +/- X
  • these scripts work in arrangement, MIDI Editor and Inline Editor





2017-12-15
Add Notes +/- X
  • these scripts add to either all notes or selected notes +/- X
  • these scripts work in arrangement, MIDI Editor and Inline Editor





2017-12-16
Increase / Decrease CC
  • these scripts increase or decrease all CC events or selected CC events
  • these scripts work in arrangement, MIDI Editor and Inline Editor





2017-12-17
Quantize and Human quantize notes (straight, triplets, swing)
  • these scripts human quantize either all notes or selected notes by their respective values
  • these scripts work in arrangement, MIDI Editor and Inline Editor
  • Keep in mind, with my commands not being native Reaper quantize commands, you cannot restore their initial position with "unquantize"
  • The quantize "grid" commands use the project grid to quantize and NOT the MIDI Editor grid





2017-12-18
Set edit cursor to first / last note in selected items
  • these scripts set the edit cursor to the beginning of the first and the ending of the last note in an selected item
  • these scripts work in arrangement, MIDI Editor and Inline Editor





2017-12-19
Select CCs within boundaries of selected notes
  • these scripts select all CCs within the boundaries of selected notes
  • execute again to toggle selection
  • these scripts work in arrangement, MIDI Editor and Inline Editor





2018-01-15
Add VSTi and replace existing VSTi
  • this script adds a VSTi instance in FX slot 1
  • if there is already a VSTi, it will be replaced by this one
  • if there is no VSTi, this one will be added in FX slot 1. Existing insert FX will be moved down by one slot
  • after loading the VSTi, the floating GUI will be shown
  • in order to function correctly, the script expects only 1 VSTi on a track
Important notes: these scripts expect "Add or replace VSTi" to be installed on your system. Make sure you have checked it for installation in ReaPack.





2018-01-20
Render VSTi items without track FX
  • this script will render a VSTi item to audio, without applying the track FX
During rendering, the track FX will be bypassed, otherwise you would hear them twice (offline render
and realtime track FX). MIDI and audio items can live happy together on the same track.
This is especially useful, when you want to render a sound effect, loop, etc... to reverse the
audio or to apply take FX, fade curves...





2018-01-21
Toggle collapse selected folders
  • this script will collapse or compact selected folder tracks




2018-06-20
Move edit cursor by frames (mousewheel)
  • this script moves the edit cursor by frames depending on the value sent by the mousewheel




2018-06-28
Nudge notes left or right by 9 ticks
  • these scripts nudge either all notes or selected notes left or right by 9 ticks
  • these scripts work in arrangement, MIDI Editor and Inline Editor




2018-06-30
Change note length (mousewheel)
  • this script changes the note length via mousewheel
  • when there is no note selection, only the note under the mouse cursor is altered
  • this script only works in the MIDI Editor





2018-07-02
Change note start (mousewheel)
  • this script changes the note start position via mousewheel
  • when there is no note selection, only the note under the mouse cursor is altered
  • this script only works in the MIDI Editor




2018-07-02
Change note position (mousewheel)
  • this script changes the note position via mousewheel
  • when there is no note selection, only the note under the mouse cursor is altered
  • this script only works in the MIDI Editor





2018-07-02
Move items to timecode (in filename)
  • this script moves either all or selected items to their timecode position (written in the filename)
  • the timecode needs to be in the format xx.xx.xx.xx (Windows does not allow : in filenames)
  • this script is useful for audio formats, where Reaper can't read the BWF chunk (FLAC for example)




2018-07-12
Change note position to grid(mousewheel)
  • this script changes the note position (based on the grid, if snap in the MIDI editor is turned on) via mousewheel
  • for the time being, you have to link the grid in the MIDI editor with the arrangement grid, will try to find another way to solve this
  • if snap is turned off, it works the same as "Change note position (mousewheel)" script
  • when there is no note selection, only the note under the mouse cursor is altered
  • this script only works in the MIDI Editor




2018-07-12
Move notes to the edit cursor (relative)
  • this script moves all selected notes to the edit cursor and keeps their relative offsets
  • when the mouse hovers a note, the hovered note is used as offset instead
  • this script only works in the MIDI Editor

_Stevie_, correct me if I am wrong... I think you are a new REAPER user that recently migrated from Cubase, and you are already scripting? That's awesome!

I would do that immediately, if I knew how!
I couldn't find any guidelines how to set up GitHub for ReaPack.
Any hints appreciated!

Haha, yeah that's right. When using Cubase, I tried to complement it with AutoHotKey scripts, because it was lacking in some areas. So, I kinda felt quickly at home with ReaScript. But I will never be at the same level as guys like you or juliansader, mpl, spk77, etc...

haha
you can of course
I'm not very good. I'm learning. for years...

For some reason, testing your script, the undo block is not added.
I think it should be reaper.Undo_EndBlock('Select notes before cursor', 4)
4 for undo in items, but it seems not working either. mmm
I would also put the PreventUIRefresh and the undo commands each one in one line.

Yeah, I was just about to write that! I don't know what's going on there.
If you Undo and then Redo, everything is back to normal. But something is not right there. I have never seen such a behavior before, have you?

No I haven't seen that before. But because I don't have much experience with scripts that work on the MIDI data. @juliansader will probably know
change the flag to -1 should be safer but it still doesn't work for me
I've found this thread.. maybe related https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=185118

Thanks Hector, will check it and see what I can do!


I just finished another script. It's great for these situations when you cut a legato line and you have this small leftover note from the cut. You can adjust the shortnote length in the script's user area and display the note lenghts via ShowMessageConsole (it's commented out, but you can enable it).
It's available @GitHub.

In very short:
- Your scripts need a ReaPack header.
https://github.com/cfillion/reapack-index/wiki/Examples
https://github.com/cfillion/reapack-...-Documentation
(or see other scripts in ReaPack for examples)

- You need reapack-index to index the scripts in your repo. reapack-index produces a index.xml file.
https://github.com/cfillion/reapack-index/wiki

- This index.xml is then also pushed to your GitHub repo and you can give this URL other ReaPack users for importing your repo into ReaPack, like e.g. I did with mine:
https://github.com/nofishonfriday/ReaScripts

(or you can have it enabled by default in Reapack, don't know how though)

Thanks nofish! Will check that out.
I looked at some of the ReaPack scripts. Interessting that most of them don't use the "@decription" synthax.

Sure!

I use these commands mainly when varying an existing theme to adjust it for a new scene in a movie.
I would then select a certain part and:

- transpose it
- shorten the notes
- make them more legato
- humanize them
- change the velocity
- or simply delete it


Hope this helps!

Hey TonE!

I love kawa's stuff, but I haven't checked everything in detail.
Will check your recommendations!

Thanks _Stevie_ Didn't know you were a coder! Useful stuff.
I'll bet you are busy so when you have some time I wondered if you could do a Transpose note up/down by a Minor 3rd. Perhaps some other common intervals as well.
I know I can use the Transpose Menu, but I prefer just one keystroke as I am using Lemur C_Brains to control Midi. It comes with buttons to do these transpositions.
I've cobbled together a custom action that uses 3 x Edit Move Notes by semitone, to achieve what I want, but I'm sure there is a more elegant way of doing it.
I see that that action is locked, so I couldn't have a look at the code.
Lokasenna has similar actions but they Duplicate the notes. Looked at his script and it was Greek to me.

What is wrong with using custom actions? Wait, I tell you. Nothing.
Just invest your time in other solutions, this you solved already. Using custom actions is the ideal way, always, in using Reaper. Once you understood it, there are no limitations in Reaper, almost.

Actually TonE is right, but I can see a use case here, that isn't covered with the actions, yet. Usually, when I transpose notes, I don't necessarily need to enter the MIDI Editor. I would just select the item and execute "Transpose +1".
AFAIK, the actions only work in the MIDI Editor. I will take care of the transpose scripts!

New scripts added to the repo:

Move CC X to CC Y

Especially when working with different orchestral libraries, CCs have different meanings. Some patches in Hollywood Strings use CC11 for x-fade and CC1 for vibrato. Cinematic Studio Strings uses CC1 for x-fade. These scripts make it easy to move CCs around from one lane to another.

Will add a GIF later on.

Copy, delete and select CCs will follow.

you can insert a JS: MIDI CC Mapper
then render into new MIDI take if you need

Yes, the trick is then using eel, which can switch between contexts, like from arrange to midi editor, then back after doing its job. Just combine any actions in eel, jumping around between contexts.

Example, open_in_midi_editor_and_zoom_to_content.eel:
PHP Code:
function open_in_midi_editor_and_zoom_to_content()
(  
  
Main_OnCommand(401530); // MAIN section action 40153: "open selected item in MIDI editor"
  
active_MIDI_editor MIDIEditor_GetActive(); // Now the MIDI editor is opened -> get MIDI editor ID
  
MIDIEditor_OnCommand(active_MIDI_editor40466); // ME action: "zoom to content" 
  
MIDIEditor_OnCommand(active_MIDI_editor40468); // ME action: "zoom to one loop iteration"
);

open_in_midi_editor_and_zoom_to_content();

Haha, great! It's also one the features Junky XL uses on his touch screen.

TonE: that's actually also possible with LUA.
But the methods I'm using in my scripts doen't care if you are in the arrangement or in the MIDI editor, because it does not check for an activated MIDI editor, but simply checks, if the the item is a MIDI take.

Okay guys, A lot of new scripts are online!

I moved all MIDI editing scripts into "Item Editing", because only that way, the scripts are registered in the Main Actions. Not sure, maybe I should add a "MIDI" into the script name to identify them easier. What do you think?

I have still to solve the undo issue with the note deletion. Will see, what I can do.

Next will be the transpose script.

The transpose scripts are ready. There's 1,3,5,7 and 12 semitones up and down.
But I can easily add additional intervals by request.
Depending on if you have selected notes or not, it will either transpose the whole take or only the selected notes.

It's a Lemur Midi Template from Midi Kinetic called C_Brains for Cubase which I bought when it was first released.
I'm just mapping the buttons that are in the app to similar actions in Reaper. Waste Not Want Not
I'm using Metagrid for the rest of the Key Commands and X-Touch Compact for Faders and encoders.

There are some Lemur Templates on this forum:- Binder and another one on Liine User Templates. I can send to you if you want.

BTW I have done all the other note transposing luas. I just changed the relevant numbers.
How do I send them to you so you can approve and add them to your repo? I am following your GitHub as Dynamosity.

I'm just mapping the buttons that are in the app to similar actions in Reaper. Waste Not Want Not
I'm using Metagrid for the rest of the Key Commands and X-Touch Compact for Faders and encoders.
Yeah, I've purchased C_Brains as well, mainly to see what is happening in Cubase in terms of LE and PLE. I never used it but, took over all the LE/PLE presets
But what I was going after with my question: how did you incorporate your Lemur template (c_Brains). Did you just open the Actions List and press the corresponding button on your iPad to assign it? I was thinking of re-configuring my template to OSC, since Reaper understands it natively. But I'm not sure what the advantages are and if it's worth the hassle, since I don't know anything about OSC, yet.

I think, I checked them both already. They are pretty sophisticated. Which one are you using?

I just did a complete overhaul of most of the scripts, because Tack (Rearticulation) suggested to swap the functions out to its proper functions file. So now, it is even easier to create variations of the scripts, because you only have to change 1-2 numbers in the main script. Sorry, if you spent some time on the scripts changing the values!

I uploaded some new scripts (increase and decrease CC, Add notes)and updated the old ones.
There's a major change here: most of the functions have been outsourced to
a dedicated file "sr_MIDI functions.lua". This file has to be selected for installation, when you want to use the MIDI scripts, otherwise the scripts won't work.

I gathered a lot of info today, concerning ReaPack and how to integrate external functions. There were many possibilities, like a metapackage. But all this didn't really satisfy me.
In the case of a metapackage, a single package which carries all the transpose scripts, would be created. But that way, the user won't have the possibility to de-select unnecessary scripts. You would have to install them all in one go. Same for CC selection, CC deletion, etc... In the end, I felt that this would overcomplicate things and make it less streamlined. So, I decided against this approach.
The result is, as I mentioned, the need to install the sr_MIDI functions.lua.

Also, the MIDI scripts have been moved back to the "MIDI Editor" folder, since I found a solution how to make them available in the main action list as well.


EDIT: I'm still in the process of fixing some scripts. Especially the issue with broken undo and get_MIDI. I hope I'll be able to finish that until next week.

Exactly. Too difficult to edit that Lemur template. Some features can't be used, but I can get all the ones I used the most to work.

At the moment neither. I have gone back to real faders and encoders for CC control. I was getting too much of a lag over WIFI.

It was an issue of Search and Replace, so didn't take long. BTW thanks for the updates.

Glad to hear! I still have my Steinberg controllers here (the CMC series), I hope I can hook them up with Reaper, soon. I'm using the iPad solely to fire up DAW internal commands.

And...new commands: Quantize notes and Human quantize notes.
I created those, because in Reaper we are not able to quantize notes in the arrangement. We have to enter the key editor to do so. Furthermore, Reaper does not allow to create presets for quantize with a certain strength. We always have to open the quantize dialog.
You can easily create new presets by adjusting the humanize value in the scripts and the grid value. I will provide triplet presets in a few.
Keep in mind, with my commands not being quantize commands, you cannot restore their initial position with "unquantize".
EDIT: The quantize "grid" commands use the project grid to quantize and NOT the MIDI Editor grid!

Thanks, looks good, being able to quantize slowly is useful. Does human quantize work always backwards, as far as I could see from the image demo?

Sorry, I should have mentioned, when the notes move back to their original position, I was pressing undo

P.S: GitHub takes a while to list all the updates. But should be online in some
minutes.
P.S.S: files are up!


EDIT: new triplets and swing quantize scripts
