 Cakewalk CAL programming information

The information on this site is mostly for people who already have some experience with CAL programming. My intention is to fill gaps in the documentation provided by Cakewalk, and to share useful programming tricks and tips. Have a look at my links page for other very useful references. I recommend Glen Cardenas's tutorial (see the links page) or the CAL Tutor which is bundled with CPA Deluxe (versions 6 and higher), if you are just getting started with CAL.
