Cubase 13 - Ctrl+Shift velocity editing

The Ctrl+Shift+left mouse button velocity editing behaviour in the key editor appears to have changed for the worse in Cubase 13. In Cubase 12, Ctrl+Shift+LMB would show the current velocity of a note, and dragging up down would raise/lower it. In Cubase 13, Ctrl+Shift+LMB always starts off showing 127, but changes to the correct value once dragging begins.

Are you on Mac or Windows? Could you try in Cubase Safe Start Mode, please?

It works as expected on my side.

Windows 10 Pro 22H2. Cubase 13.0.10.

Create an empty project.
Add a MIDI track.
Add a note to the track.
Ctrl+Shift+left click on the note and drag its velocity to something like 64.
Ctrl+Shift+left click on the note. It shows 127 until you start dragging, and then it jumps to 64 +/- a bit.

That’s what’s happening to me anyway!


Oh, you are right. I didn’t realize, because I always immediately move the mouse.

Reported to Steinberg. Thank you.

not only that, but changing velocity of selected note in the upper info tab of the key editor no longer triggers playback, super frustrating! should I create a separate thread?


This is a known and already discussed and reported issue. Thank you.

Is there any fix available for this? editing velocity has become very tedious specially for notes at the same time.


This is going to be fixed in the next maintenance update.


The Ctrl+Shift drag up/down on notes to adjust velocity seems to have been fixed in 13.0.30. Thank you.


Cubase 13.0.30 has been released. Please, update.
