Midi Channel selection when writing notes question

Sorry, that was an awful subject title but it’s quite difficult to cram exactly what I am trying to ask into a short title.

When writing basslines i usually like to use multiple midi instruments for different notes, to do this I usually either write the melody on 1 midi part and move notes between midi channels… or I will select all the midi events at the same time then use the dropdown menu at the top to select the correct midi channel to write to.

so my question is… with multiple midi channels selected and opened, is there a faster way to select which channel you are writing notes to,

I am just looking for the fastest possible way to change the channel that the notes are written to

any ideas?

I should really just read the manual! :slight_smile: I see you can set key commands for selecting next + previous part!.. Is this the best way?
