In DP you have a “Shift Tool” where you can move anything by a set amount of beats, ticks, samples, whatever.
I realize Cubase doesn’t have this… So I found an alternative that does the trick. If you select something, I have a quick key that goes to the info line and selects the beat part of the “Start Time Section” then I hit “+” on my numeric keypad.
That pulls up a “Add Time” little menu. It’s great because then I can just type in the beats/ticks/etc and it moves.
HOWEVER, if I hit “-” to subtract (or in this case add a negative amount) it STILL moves the event forward.
If I select the MEASURE section of that info area, and do a negative amount, then it does what I want and moves it backwards… but Most of the time I don’t move measures i’m moving beats or small amounts like ticks.
Is this some sort of bug? Or am I doing something wrong? Is there another way to simply grab an event or even a single midi note and tell it to move backwards 2 beats?
