Dragging MIDI directly into instrument track


I have been trying to figure this out for quite a while, but I can’t find any information on it.

Whenever I drag a MIDI into Cubase, it creates an entirely new track. In the preferences I can then choose between the track being an Instrument Track, MIDI Track or Halion.

But is there a way to just drag it into an existing track, since all I do is dragging it into Cubase, then moving it up to the correct place, and the deleting the newly created track. It is a lot of dragging and clicking for something that should be fairly easy to do.


You can drag and drop it directly to an instrument track from MediaBay.

Oh, I now think I found a bug.

My problem was that I was always trying to drag the MIDI into a lane of the instrument track. Apparently, that does not work, but if I fold the lanes back up, it works as expected.
