I do a lot of orchestral writing and I’m looking for ways to streamline the tasks that I do very often. Couple of things have been bugging me recently and I wanted to know if anyone had a solution to them.
When I explode a midi track into separate tracks (useful if I’ve played a chord progression on an ensemble patch and then want to map the individual lines to legato instruments) the newly created tracks end up way at the bottom of my session. Does anyone know if there is a way to get the tracks to stay within the folder I’m in? Or even better, to map the exploded midi the tracks directly below? Would this be possible with a macro?
One more question. I find myself adjusting midi cc data endlessly with the mouse and I’m searching for a way to raise and lower midi cc automation with a set of key commands. Basically, I’d like to be able to enter the key editor, select the notes/automation that I’d like to adjust and then use a key command to raise or lower the overall volume/expression etc. Is this possible?
As a side note, I’d love to hear from others who write orchestral music and have similar techniques for streamlining their workflow!
Thanks for reading.
