Stop at Stop Track - This will stop exporting BEFORE exporting the Stop Track. (MEAP will have to read the track name first).

 

6.15.715 Update:

Standardized many of the pauses between key presses. These pauses can now be controlled by entering values in the export.ini file:
They are intended for the advanced user only. Or to be adjusted under instruction from me.  
With a smaller number there will be less pause between keys and events. So for a slower system these numbers could be changed to (example):
For a faster more responsive system the waits can be shortened. The defaults should work fine for most systems.
Added some extra checks to wait for clipboard to become available before copying to clipboard.
Moved the folder that MEAP uses to take its screen capture before finding graphics. The folder is now called "screen" and will be easier to access for checking what MEAP is looking at when searching for track names etc.
All of the above will give us much more accurate ways of tuning out delay and pause problems that may lead to phantom key presses.
Please note: I never have this problem with any of my test machines  but it is always good to improve and standardise the way things work.

 

6.15.679 Update:

Added support for other V4 Applications (AI4, CE4) and for 64 bit versions
Recompiled with latest software compiler update (released this morning)

6.15.633 Update:

Recompiled with latest installer. Path will now be written correctly in V3 programs when using Custom File Name option.

 

6.15.619 Update:

Installer will now copy a key commands file to your key commands presets folder. This means you will no longer need to go through your audio application and set all those commands. Simply select the MEAP key commands from the drop down list in the Key Command editor.

 

6.15.609 Update:

Added Save New Project option:
If this box is checked, MEAP will save your project with a number (my_project.cpr becomes my_project-01.cpr) before MEAP starts exporting or makes any changes to your project (i.e. removing empty tracks etc.) This will enable you to revert to the original project after exporting if required.
Included key commands preset file in installation:
If you prefer you can use the default key command sets that are saved to your desktop on installation. The file MEAPKeysV3.xml / MEAPKeysV4.xml (V3 for SX3, Nuendo 3 etc. V4 for Cubase 4, Nuendo 4 etc.) will be in the MEAP folder in your My Documents folder. You can then copy the appropriate file to the following places:
Windows Vista: C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\[audio application]\Presets\KeyCommands\*Place appropriates file here*
Windows XP: C:\Documents and settings\[user name]\Application Data\Steinberg\[audio application]\Presets\KeyCommands\*Place appropriates file here*
Now when you open your audio application and go to the Key Commands screen you can select the MEAP Key Command set from the drop down list.
Fixed track file list not being written when custom file naming was used
Fixed problem where Left locator Could be found mistakenly as an insert
Added version history txt file

 

6.13.421 Update:

This release is mainly about efficiency:

 

Stopped MEAP from entering path every time a track is exported in V4 applications. Path is only required on the first export.
The three main dialog boxes now have a clickable logo in the top right corner that brings up version info
Removed the redundant dialog boxes that used to show when MEAP was searching for graphics. As this is so fast now the dialog boxes do nothing useful.
Started updating the Tutorials section of the web site.

 

6.13.297 Update:

Updated and improved installation - Major improvement to install process.
Removed key command editor to streamline process. As it was only possible to customise a very small number of keys - this process was doing nothing but getting in the way. It is much easier simply to save your key command set within your audio application.

 

6.13.015 Update:

MEAP will now make sure that the Select Tool is selected in order to stop problems when other tools are selected. New key commands required:

 

Tool - Tool 1 = CTRL+ALT+1

Tool - Tool 2 = CTRL+ALT+2

 

New option: Path for: Audio Files / Track List Log / Screen Shot
Click the Browse button to browse to the folder where you would like to save your exported files. If you have elected to make a track list log and / or end screen shot - they will also be saved to this folder.
The screen shot (if used) will now be named using the same convention as the log file.
Removed some errors from the manual
Changed some internal routines to sub routines for efficiency
Recompiled with latest compiler.

 

6.12.101 Update:

Added ability to remove empty tracks (requires new key command):
Project - Remove Empty Tracks = CTRL+ALT+R
Improved clipboard functions (should help with track name errors).
Recompiled with latest compiler version.

 

6.10.525 Update:

Improved speed of graphics searches (for file name, bars, time, mute etc.) by a HUGE amount. For example, when getting track names from project tracks - the time it takes to find the name should now take about a 30% of the previous time!
Added new options to export separate parts using bar or time info.
Added more options in custom file namer.
Improved logic in main dialog.

 

6.02.147 Update:

Added shortcut to Log File folder in start menu
Added version number to logging output
Added version number to the final check dialog (e.g. Nuendo 3 ready)
Fixed bug which wrongly detected Nuendo 3 as Nuendo 4 and caused filename errors

 

6.02.124 Update:

Added ability to write track list log file.

 

From the manual:

Create Track List Log:

Creates a text file in the logs folder with time date and track listing information. the file will be named MEAP_datetime (example MEAP_200712051124.txt). You can rename this file after export is finished.

 

6.01.891 Update:

Fixed quite an important bug tonight that could have affected many things. Mainly to do with the way that MEAP recognises which audio application is open.
If anyone has been having problems with MEAP recognising graphics in Nuendo for example this should fix that problem.
You can check if MEAP has recognized your app properly by reading the screen that comes up after you exit the main dialogue.
It should say (for example): Cubase 4 ready...

 

6.01.887 Update:

Get Bar Info from Project (This operation takes a little extra time as MEAP searches for visual references on your screen):
This option will scan the transport bar for the left locator setting. It will then read the bar information (bar, beat, note and tick). The bar info will be added to the file name on export following the letters "bx". For example Drums_bx0_01_01_045, Bass_bx9_02_01_753 etc. Especially useful if you are using locator options such as - Parts on Tracks or Separate Parts, as it will allow the files to be placed back in their original position. If you set the option Parts On Tracks - MEAP will automatically scan for bar info.
Get Time Info from Project (This operation takes a little extra time as MEAP searches for visual references on your screen):
This option will scan the transport bar for the left locator setting. It will then read the time information (hour, minute, second and frame). The time info will be added to the file name on export following the letters "tx". For example Drums_tx0_01_01_045, Bass_tx9_02_01_753 etc. Especially useful if you are using locator options such as - Parts on Tracks or Separate Parts, as it will allow the files to be placed back in their original position. If you set the option separate Parts - MEAP will automatically scan for bar info.

 

Note: Only 1 of the above Info options can be used at one time (Bar or Time). If you try to select both - they will both become unselected enabling you to choose again.

 

%HR Hour

%MN Minute

%SC Second

%FR Frame

 

Additional note: If you select this option you must choose whether to read TIME or BAR info from the left locator. You will have to choose one or the other. Obviously you must choose whichever option your project is set to display on the main transport.

 

Updated internal code and manuals.
