How to prevent parts from splitting if you insert time?


Something I’ve wondered for a while now is how you prevent midi parts from “splitting” when you insert silence ? if that is even possible.

Well I guess if you add silence between a start and end of a part or event it has to split to make room for the silence. So I’m gonna say there’s no way around it.

As far as I know the only way to prevent this is to mute the track but that may not be desirable because it won’t insert silence on the entire track. Not sure if it works when you mute the part? Not at my studio at the moment so can’t test. Or you could of course move the part out of scope temporarily and place it back after the insert?
