Recently I’ve been making some jazz / big band midi mockups in Cubase 7 and I stumbled upon the following:
I do most of the writing on the piano. When I go from the writing to the arranging process and, for example, arrange a series of block chords for a sax section, I manually select all the ‘lines’ on the piano and copy them to the individual sax tracks (I use single legato patches for realism).
This can be quiet a time-consuming job. Is there a better, more intuitive way of doing this? I tried the ‘separate/dissolve midi parts’ function, but it doesn’t detect the monophonic lines.
