Studio one has this macro which I’d like to create in Cubase if possible. For editing midi chords.
Select all lowest notes.
2 Invert selection.
So the idea is to select all the lowest notes then invert the selection so you now are selecting everything else but the lowest notes then delete everything but the lowest notes keeping the root notes.
If I could get the Restrict Polyphony command to select the lowest notes that would work. However it just selects the highest notes.
In the Cubase’s Logical Editor, there is preset: Musical Context > Select Highest Pitch. You can modify it to select the Lowest Pitch and Extract it. Or you can make a Macro to trigger this Select Highest Pitch preset two times (this could be a bit risky, in case you would have only 2 notes sometimes; and it will work if there will be a 4-nots chord). Or you can make a macro to:
Run adapted Select Lowest Pitch
To adapt the preset to Extract Lowest Pitch:
Type Is | Equal | Note | And
Context Variable | Equal | Lowest Pitch
Save it as your user preset.
Cubase will create a new MIDI Track, with the lowest Pitch Notes.
You’ll need to use the Logical Editor which can be included in your macro.
The attached shows an LE preset to select the lowest note in a chord(s). Positions are numbered from the bottom up, so the lowest note is 0, 2nd lowest is 1, etc. I have a set of these defined so I can select any note in the chord.
It’s funny, I tried this macro and it works perfectly on my keyboard, but when I assign it to a button on my midi keyboard, it ends up deleting the lowest rows of notes one by one until it isolates the highest notes lol
Thanks. Out of interest, how did you go about reporting this to Steinberg? I have an issue where my track preset filter and VST plug-in path settings aren’t saving, but there seems to be no formal way of writing a support ticket or getting in touch with Steinberg’s support team except via phonecall.
