Moving midi in grid (key editor)

Hi all,

Pretty basic question here:

I know how to for ex, move midi up/down an octave ( shift + arrow key) or moving up or down note (arrow up/down)

I’ve searched the forums, and key commands…

but cant seem to find how to move midi 1 place left/right in the grid?

Thanks for helping! :slight_smile:

Cubase considers this a “Nudge” command.

Go into File --> Key Commands, navigate to the folder called “Nudge”, and assign a key command to the “Left” and “Right” values.

The amount of nudging will occur according to the current Grid setting (i.e. if the Grid is 16th notes, the left/right nudging will also be 16th notes).

Good luck!

Nudge! … no wonder

Thank you, good sir

There’s also a Nudge Menu tool that you can add by right-clicking on the top toolbar area.
This will give even finer tuning options for movement.

I found it about 2 weeks ago, and have used it ever since.

Make sure you adjust the quantize/grid settings as mentioned above.
You can see the how the MIDI event [note] movements differ when you change these.

You can always just use your mouse and drag & drop notes anywhere you want them as well.
