Create a MIDI track, set to loop for a bar. Record a few notes. Stop. Now record a few more notes. Stop.
Note that the track now only displays the most recent notes recorded. Mute the track. Only the most recent notes are muted. Unmute. Double-click the area which shows the notes, opening the editor. Only the most recent notes appear as editable events, however, the piano keyboard still shows both sets of notes playing.
Select and copy the first bar, paste onto the second bar. Note that only the most recent notes are copied.
Undo. Select the first bar. Erase it. Now you can finally see the first set of notes recorded. But this is at the cost of losing your second recording.
Is there some way to see/edit/copy the first set of notes recorded — the notes “under” the most recent take? It’s like there’s some multi-layer thing happening on each track, but there’s no way to get at anything but the last group of notes recorded.
I find this behavior utterly baffling, and can’t understand how you can do anything non-trivial in a MIDI sequencer which behaves this way — but I also don’t see anyone else noting such a behavior.
Am I missing some view which shows ALL the notes one has recorded on a track — not just those from the last time you pressed record? Is this a documentation issue? Am I just being dense and overlooking something incredibly obvious?
