Pedal marks traditionally indicate where the sustain pedal of a piano is to be pressed and for how long. With Cakewalk, you can achieve the same effect by inserting a pair of symbols indicating when the sustain pedal controller is to be turned on (down) and when it is to be turned off (up). Unlike chord symbols, expression marks, and hairpin symbols, each pedal symbol corresponds to a MIDI event. The other symbols are purely ornamental, intended to provide a composer with a way to communicate suggestions or requirements to performers.
You can suppress the display of all pedal marks by deselecting the Show Pedal Events option in the Staff view's Layout dialog box.
2. Click the Pedal button in the Staff view.

1. Right-click the pedal symbol (pedal down or pedal up) to open the Pedal Event Parameters dialog box.Figure 486. The Pedal Properties dialog box.
