I apologize as I’m sure this is a pretty rudimentary question. Finale has this entry mode I’m sure some of you are familiar with where you can enter notes using a midi keyboard and hotkeys on your computer keyboard to change note duration - this is not done in realtime, instead the playhead advances to the next note based on the duration of the note you just entered. I was wondering if something similar can be rigged up in Cubase.
What I’d like to do is put the playhead where I want to start entering a passage, select quarter note length on the grid for example using a hotkey, and then hit a key on my midi keyboard to enter the pitch at that duration. The playhead would then advance to the end of of the note I just entered, and I could select duration and pitch again. All of this would be outside of realtime so you could burn through a passage quickly by just choosing note pitches and durations between a midi keyboard and hotkeys. In Finale, it’s a pretty cool way to enter in handwritten parts quickly, and for your DAW it would just be a huge timesaver if you’re going to be sequencing a part anyways instead of playing live.
