Remove duplicate MIDI notes?

I have a MIDI track that, for some unknown reason, has a lot of duplicate notes. Is there any way to filter these out, or do I have to go through and manually delete every one?

Thanks for your time.

    There's a CAL program at ftp://ftp.cakewalk.com/pub/CAL/ in "Remove Duplicate Events CAL.zip". Maybe that'll help.

    I could've sworn there was a "DUPES.CAL", but I can't locate it right now. Aargh! Maybe someone will come up with it...

    I am not at my DAW right now but my guess is "UNDUPES.CAL".

    Best regards,

    hi bluz!

    You have to Downloald the zip-file mentioned above, unzip it, and put the File "UNDUPE.CAL" in your CAL-Folder...

    best

    So to combine above posts...

    Go to ftp://ftp.cakewalk.com/pub/CAL/

    Download the file called "Remove Duplicate Events CAL.zip".

    Unzip that file to get "Undupe.cal"

    Run "Undupe.cal" on the track to remove duplicates and maybe it'll do what you want.

    Hey, thanks for all your help! I've never gotten into CAL (I'm a newcomer to Sonar from another DAW), so now's the time. I'll let you know how it works out.

    There is a midi plugin called "Delete Doubles" on www.midi-plugins.de that deletes all kinds of doubled, repeated and possibly unnecessary MIDI events: Doubled events, Repeated events, octaves.

    It also allows you to delete doubled notes that have slightly different starting time (and are -for that reason - not "doubled" in a strict sense).

    Hmmm! Now THIS is interesting. There should be an option under Process called Run CAL. However, although it is clearly indicated in the help file under CAL, it does not show up in my Process menu at all. So the question remains, how do I access CAL under S6.01? I've not had a need to use it so far but thought I'd check it out so I could reply within this thread. Ideas, anyone?

    It's at the very bottom, hidden in a sub menu. There's a thick line, mouse over it and Run Cal will cascade out of it.

    Under the Process menu, Run Cal and select Undupe. This is included with S6. HTH

    When I try to run undupe I get a dialogue "windows for time identity"....what does this mean?
    Whether I leave it at the default of 0 or enter 100 I get "deleted 0 duplicate events".
    I know I have hundreds of duplicated events in the track...what am I missing here?
    Thanks very much,
    Randy
