1. Issue with create phrase markers function.
 
I can't seem to get the overdrive part of the "Create Phrase Markers" function to work at all.


Yeah, the function was never implemented, some time I need to go back and remove the option. You can still create OD phrases separately.
 
 

2. Issue with Add space between tubes function
 
The documentation says this has options of (all|selected) but there is only a single dialog button for "fix all phrases"
For me, the function only shortens the Phase & overdrive markers, none of the notes in the phrases are actually shortened.
 
This would be a good function to use on imported midi files that have notes touching or overlapping.

 

I have to admit I don't remember the logic behind it, I don't think I ever used the function. However, it's definitely a very bad idea to import a MIDI and not work it. If your project is in such bad shape that notes overlap because you are using the RAW music MIDI notes, that overlapping is the least of your worries. ;)

Is there a Video Tutorial on how to use this program?  I have Reaper 4.22 I downloaded python and installed correctly.  CAT.py did open up however after clicking on the buttons, nothing is showing up on the MIDI part of anything....

If you've gotten to the point where this window pops up, and whatever function you're trying isn't working, make sure you've properly adjusted your music_start and music_end events in the EVENTS track. Some features won't work if you have invalid MIDI notes as well, but you also should be using the C3 Reaper template for charting in order to use this since they're designed to work together.

The window pops up.  I do have music_start and music_end events in the EVENTS track.  I am using the C3 Reaper template. Am I to use these functions in the EVENTS track? or in each individual track? ex: Part Keys, Part Drums, Part Bass, Part Guitar, Part Vocals?

Nevermind, I had already manually entered in the drum midi for the animations and they work now.  I will try it on my next song

The "Reduce Pro Keys Note Density Based on 5-Lane" is a much-needed function, but I think it ignores the check box options. I have this section that is done a little differently on Pro than on 5-lane, and even when I only want the density of, say, Medium, Hard is affected and the differences are erased.

Basically, it's affecting difficulties I told it not to do at the moment.

Here's a little trick I found out recently if you're having problems with getting CAT to automate stuff. Just delete every audio file on the RPP.

For some reason this works.

Not necessary. Any MIDI or audio file with weird characters in the name will cause Reaper grief. Incidentally it's not a CAT or Python thing, it's how Reaper is bad at handling file names (including folders in which the file is located)
