inspector volume vs main volume

Hi everyone

Fairly new to Cubase, can anyone tell me the difference between using the volume slider in the inspector window vs. using the main volume lane in the piano roll editor?

Should I be using both to control volume or should I only use one? Are there benefits to using one over the other?

Any thoughts would help


Do you use an Instrument Track or a MIDI Track?

The Volume in the Key Editor (MIDI CC7) is controlling it on the MIDI base. So this is the same, as the fader, for the MIDI track. In the Instrument track, you are controlling the Audio Return volume by the fader, not the MIDI volume.

Hi Martin

Sorry I never followed up on this, never got notified there was a response! (need to change settingsā€¦) But thank you for the insight, makes sense now!
