No doubt the Key Edit window in Cubase is the best tool available for editing MIDI and no other program can match it but as good as it is, coming to use it nearly every day some things seem quite lacking mainly in the area of modifiers but also around general operation such as how it is presented when opened for first time, that is when no other editors are open.
Why is it that you are presented with Velocities, as if they are so important they take precedence over all other possible controllers? Also why is the last option presented for any key edit window and it is not track specific?
In another post I was told not to use Main Volume for changes in relation to notes and I’ve taken that on board for the future when I must split notes from chords into distinct midi channels (tracks) so as to be able to modify their respective volumes relative to one another for a single instance of a multi-timbral instrument with multiple copies of each instrument loaded.
What I’d like is to have Main Volume, or alternatively the Expression controller lane shown instead of Velocity, and I know it (velocities) look pretty and all but they are not always what I want to edit immediately and sure I could get C6 or Artist and use the list editor but what if I don’t want to spend that kind of cash when it’s Steinberg who should be innovating?
