For some unexplained reason, when I try to resize a MIDI note in the Key Editor, instead of extending the note to the left or right, a new note and velocity is created. This is not the behavior in the editor that I was expecting.
I’m using the arrow, placing it on the end of the note until it turns into the double arrow. I’ve found a work around where I have to select the note first by drawing a selection rectangle through the note. Then I can size it normally. I’ve been using Cubase for a number of years, since version 3.x, and this odd editor behavior is something that just recently sprung up.
So, out of curiosity, I tested a “note on top of another note” in my key editor.
My results using the arrow selection tool (resizing a note to the left) looked very similar to your screenshot.
Is is possible that you have a “double note”
It makes sense that editing via the arrow selection tool would generate the new velocity as it’s only selecting one note at a time. This would appear to create a new velocity because it’s only moving one note’s velocity back while the other note’s velocity stays put.
However, the selection rectangle would select both notes and move both velocities at the same time.
The thing is, I don’t remember this behavior in prior versions when input was set to All Midi inputs. I’m recording input that is coming from a distinct MIDI input device. Why would it lay down two notes?
I’ll just have to stop being lazy and make sure to assign a defined input.
