I am trying to learn Drum Programming and having a lot of fun doing it to. It’s one of the reasons I took advantage of the cross grade discount fee to come over from Pro Tools. Their Midi editing is just archaic. And I am really liking other things in Cubase as well as I get more and more comfortable with it.
Here is one thing getting my goat though. I was watching a video by Ryan Bruce on Drum Programming. Now he’s using logic, but I figured this feature would be everywhere. One of his tips on setting up drums from scratch was to feel around with the notes. What he was doing, was he’d start with the kick and he would then use Alt + clicking on the midi note, to simultaneously copy and drag the midi note to a new location.
When I do that, it selects the drum stick tool and erases the note I just created. Now in the Tool Modifier in Cubase, there is a Drag & Drop selection with the shortcut key being Alt (Option.) I am using an iMac. But I cannot find that option anywhere in the drum editor.
Is this even possible to do in Cubase? I find it hard to believe it’s not and probably just a case of me learning the DAW. Appreciate any help I can get on this.
