I’ve been using Cubase since version 3 (now running 6) and I’ve always thought the Piano roll in the MIDI editor could do with 1 feature that’d be an absolute must for songwriters & composers.
I’d love to be able to have 2 versions of the piano roll, one with the standard set of keys on, and the other to have only the keys of the scale I’ve selected.
So say, I wanted to write a melody using the A major Scale I’d just simply select it then compose a melody with the new piano roll instead of spending time finding the notes on the original. The ability to be able to switch through multiple different variations and keys (such as minor, diminished etc…) would be great. Making it quick and easy to write melodies on the fly with no faffing around.
