In Editor when moving a note it extends the note


You can see that two notes have been cut as I try to move it with the arrow


I was thinking, you have the Split tool selected instead of the Object Selection tool. But at your screenshot, I don’t see any tool selected in fact. So what tool do you use, please?

I use the arrow tool to move a note (to make it shorter for example). Instead of making the note shorter it starts cuting as you can see:


Are you sure, there are no double-notes bellow the one you are moving?

Use MIDI > Functions Delete Doubles.

Hi no. I have made a short video of what happens how can I send you this?

See Uploading files

I am unable to upload a gif below 4mb otherwise I cannot show you what happens.
So is there any other solution?

So the Selection Tool image is doing the exact same thing as the Split Tool image ?

Upload it to giphy and then give us the link:

It does look like you have notes sitting on top of each other to me, like @Martin.Jirsak has mentioned.

Try selecting one note that acts like this with the arrow tool (i.e. click on it so it changes colour), and then press the cursor down button on your keyboard and it will move it down on the screen.

You’ll soon see if there’s another note hiding behind it.

I tried to move the double note as skijumptoes (nice nickname btw;) mentioned and indeed this seems the case. How is this possible? This must be since I have my new midi keyboard (nektar panorama t6). Why does this double all notes? What can I do to prevent this?

It seems the keyboard is sending the MIDI Notes via 2 MIDI Ports. Double-check Studio > Studio Setup > MIDI Ports Setup. Do you have any MIDI Port doubled? Do you use multiple MIDI Driver types?

Yes Martin indeed this must be the problem if I am correct

I am not sure why there are 2 ports active on In and Out. Never had this. Would the ports reset be the best option?


This is not the MIDI Port Setup.

Yes indeed hereby:

Using the In “All MIDI” column (Second from right) you need to untick items that you want to exclude from recording into the timeline on Cubase.

I’d suggest turning them all off other than the Panorama T6 one (Last item ticked) and try it out.

Are you sure that the Panorama T6 has all theses MIDI inputs and Outputs ports as feature ? Maybe it’s the case, but well… I’m wondering if the issue doesn’t come from here, actually and, in your case, if there are all necessary.

Beside this, it indeed seems that there were two notes piling up, form which, at first glance, the ‘cut’ appearance. Now, could you post a screenshot of the project page showing both the involved MIDI part and the track that contains it with its inspector (important…) ? Beside this, in the Key Editor, how is the Part editing Mode setting ?


EDIT : and as @skijumptoes just suggested (that’s why I am asking you the screenshot showing the track with its inspector), the All MIDI Inputs could be the culprit in the Input Routing setting, as it will use all the T6 input ports available and included in it…

Yeah they do have a lot ports, but usually only notes are transmitted on the one - so what you’ve written here could also be the solution, It’s something along those lines for sure!

It could be possible that @roelroland has the Panorama plugged in via USB and via the MIDI ports on the UR22 too - so 3 possibilities to check… lol

New project time, create a single MIDI track - it’s the best way to work out what’s going.

Let’s see the track inspector screenshot… :grinning:

I have a midi cable plugged in the nektar that goes to the UR22 and I have a usb cable plugged in (for power) in my PC. You know I have never been a fan of keyboards that use USB to get power. In my opinion there will always go something wrong. Why not using an ordinary adapter for power and 2 midi cables? Of course I understand the extras that usb can do but still… I will buy an adapter for the power of the nektar.
I have updated the nektar installation program, checked the Studio setup > Midi setup and created a new midi track. But it still doubles all the notes…
I will check cubic13’s advice and try to make a screenshot when I have found out what he exactly means.

And of course my UR22 is also plugged in my PC using an usb cable…
