When editing MIDI controller events in the MIDI Controller Lane, I have a problem.
When MIDI events overlap, their controller bars overlap too. Like in the image - three events, but only one bar visible:
I qoute from the Cubase 8.5 manual:
“If there is more than one note at the same position, their velocity bars overlap on the controller lane. If none of the notes are selected, all notes at the same position are set to the same velocity value when you draw.
To edit the velocity of only one of the notes at the same position, first select the note in the note display”.
There seems to be no difference, whether I select the note or not. I can’t isolate a controller bar from other bars, when they are overlapping.
Isn’t there an easy way to quickly select the correct controller bar for one of the three events?
Yes, Steve, you can do that with success many times (maybe even most of the times), but many times too, it is still difficult to separate the bars. And your statement “only selected notes can be edited” doesn’t work in my Cubase. I can, as a matter of fact, edit other notes, than the selected note(s).
I’m sorry, Steve, but I’ve just tested again. The screenshot shows the situation:
As you can see, the top note D4 is selected. When I go to the MIDI Controller Lane, and click with the pencil (and the controller “Velocity” selected), the bottom note G3, is the one, that is adjusted.
All right - I’ve tested it again.
I selected the pen from tool bar, and also tried selecting by right-clicking.
Both ways give the same behaviour: It does not necessarily move the selected note, as it should.
And though this behaviour is not intended, it does make sense in relation to my former posts. It would be strange, if the automatically selected pencil tool (when moving cursor to the MIDI Controller Lane) had a different behavior, than when I select it from the tool bar.
