Holy S***! (sorry) I just took a completely wild pass at this solution I found (so it's probably not even correct or anything) but basically it mentioned something about changing a variable, I don't know if it meant the env variable (for Python) I set to stop REAPER from crashing but I pasted the new path into the variable and I dunno if it broke the env variable or what but the program loads now and Reaper doesn't crash, so I'll call that win lol. Solution is here for anyone who encounters the same problem, and from what I've (briefly) tested the fuctions work.

 

Thanks for the program Farottone!

I have a question, where and how do I have to install CAT? I am trying to do this to reduce the difficulties. Thanks.

Hi,

 

don't know if this is the topic, but let's try and if its not I'll delete my post.

 

Been struggling since last monday (1 week) trying to create auto reductions for a ONLY X PERT song. first I put reaper, python and cat to work , ok done . Then the battle begun. Read all manuals but didn't not figure out how to "send" this particular song to reaper. I manage to discover I have to open the .mid in Reaper. OK, I'm in the main screen where you see Master, part drum part guitar part bass and etc. I did not see part vocals  i think because the song is a single track. OK.  The thing is  I thought  the process was just yo open the mid, open CAT choose 5- lane reduction, choose drum reduction, save the edited . mid put it back in the folder of the song, edit the dta so it  isnt only expert anymore create .con , done, But  I think a way too sdistant from the true . Can someone help ? 

THANKS!!

Unfortunately you need to first get acquainted with authoring, because CAT assumes you're an author or know how to author. Opening a MIDI in Reaper won't work, a lot more must be done to make a project comply with CAT requirements. ;)

Sorry to bother you, mister, you're right.  A pig will not fly anyways, :smug: . Thank you !

I'm also having problems with CAT on Windows 10. (Using Python 2.7.6 32-bit, Reaper 4.22 32-bit.)

 

When I try to do drum reductions, it just unchecks the boxes when I hit "Reduce" and doesn't do anything. (Looking at the code, it should be detecting that I have notes on Hard, Medium, and Easy and ask if it should overwrite them... it doesn't seem to be getting that far.)

When I try calling reduce_5lane.py directly, I get this error:

The chart compiles in Magma, but I can post an .RPP if need be.

Have you gone through the list of things to check in the first post?

...turns out it was a problem with the RPP the whole time. I copied and pasted the notes into a fresh C3 Template, and now everything works fine.

 

Thank you so much for writing this, by the way! I can tell it's gonna save me a lot of time.

Here are some new tools for CAT.

 

With this you can now generate Pro G/B Root notes; fret hand positions; and copy OD/solo markers from 5 lanes to pro G/B.

 

There is also the Guitar Pro 5 import on which I'm working on; the drum track import is working quite nice now so I included it in it.

I thought this sounded interesting enough to give it a try, but after extracting to my CAT folder, I get a script execution error.

Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "CAT.py"' line 233, in <module>
  create22tracksBtn.grid(row=3, column=1, sticky="WE", padx=5, pady=2)
NameError: name 'create22tracksBtn' is not defined

It looks like I'm missing the referenced module, and I don't know how to obtain it.

Whoops, that was a button that I removed because I haven't worked on that function yet; apparently I forgot to delete that part of the code.

 

I reuploaded with this line deleted; same link.

I don't know if it's a bug; and I don't really care for animations but other do so I'll point it out:

 

On my latest release I just noticed that the drum animations are weird: the intro is in 7/4 and drums hits the hi-hat every beat; though CAT made it so drummer alternate hands. I don't think this was intended behavior.

 

You can see what I mean just by looking at the first minute of the video on the preview: http://customscreato...s-enough-r14919

Can you upload the RPP?

Do you have the latest 2.7.x python version?

 

Are you using the same bit version for both REAPER and python?
