I'm trying to use the orbiter to move the cursor of the "now time" in cakewalk. In order to do this, i am trying the following:
- I created a new binding between the "o" key and the "Start/Stop Fast Forward" action in Cakewalk keyboard shortcuts preferences
- I created a new binding between the "e" key and the "Start/Stop Rewing" action in Cakewalk keyboard shortcuts preferences. After these first 2 steps, i am able to rewind and fast forward using the "e" and "o" keys on the keyboard, as espected.
- I set the Orbiter into Keyboard Mode and assign "e" to the Left Turn and "o" to the right turn.
Unfortunately this does not work. In order to see the cursor move i need to add a "shift" modifier to both the turn left and turn right settings for the orbiter (why is this???).
Even if i now get some movement, it's choppy and imprecise. Furthermore, very often cakewalk's cursor keeps on moving even after i stopped turning the orbiter. I noticed that I get the best results if I set the sensitivity to "low" (5). But at this speed i also noticed that the speed at which the orbiter repeats sending the keypress signals is faster than what the keyboard does.
I get the very same odd behaviour if I try to use a Dial controller.
- Why does it work only if I add a "shift" modifier?
- is this a known issue/behaviour and is there any workaround?
- is it possible to insert a sensitivity lower than 5?
Thank you in advance!
