Crop MIDI Parts?

After resizing my MIDI Parts, there’s a huge amount of notes that I want to delete on the ends. Is there a short way of getting rid of them without having to open the editor and selecting them and then deleting them?

Hi,

Use the Scissor tool in the Project window, please.

Thanks.
I can’t tell you how many times I use the scissor to JUST split midi part. It’s actually so simple to cut and then just delete the remaining unused part.

Thing is, I come from Ableton and still think in terms of the way I did things there. With Ableton I just resized a clip and clicked “consolidate” and it then chucked away the rest that isn’t showing.

Hi,

There are actually 2 ways to “cut” the MIDI Part. By moving the border of the MIDI Part. This is non-destructive cut and the data remains. So you can move the border back and get the data again. Or you can use the Scissors tool (either by selecting it or using Alt + click). This is destructive cut and the data becomes deleted, if you delete the other MIDI Part.

Another way is to use the range tool to select the “good part” and then [Alt+Shift+X] (Edit > Range > Crop Range.) This is for the project window of course, in the key editor no range tool is available.

Unfortunately the range select and crop method still leaves the unwanted notes in the midi part, just out of sight though…

I’m after the destructive method. The scissors “split” work and then I just delete the remaining excess part.
