Cool, it seem that everything is working correctly!

Which of the four options are unclear?

The "Shape" option is perhaps not self-explanatory. You can choose between
* a "sine" shape by entering "s",
* linear or power curve by entering a number. The number is the exponent of the function y = x^number, so 1 implies a linear, straight line; 2 implies a quadratic curve, etc.

The script does not recall last-used settings. However, you can change the default values by editing the script's "USER AREA".

To set start and end values, you have to insert or select CCs with those specific numbers, before running the script.

As EvilDragon mentioned above, you can check the precise CC values in the MIDI editor before inserting them.

My script "js_Insert CC or pitch at mouse position, leaving others selected" is particularly useful for inserting CC nodes before running the Insert ramp script, as in the Pitch lane in the GIF.

Do you mean that no CCs are inserted in the lane?

Could you perhaps upload a GIF to illustrate the problem? (I am not quite sure what is happening.)

The script inserts CCs *after* you have selected or drawn the initial CC "nodes", so it will not change the left-drag drawing action.

Which of the CC lanes in the GIF are you referring to?
