I am trying to record a new midi track while looking at the score of an existing one - it seems to bee impossible? As soon as I hit the keyboard it records into the score (although the track is not armed for using that midi input and does not play back when record is not armed). I need to look at the score while I am playing as I want to follow the harmonics I use there.
I have disabled "Enable Record on Selected MIDI Track in Editing / Project & MixConsole. Then I found the setting
MIDI > Solo Record in MIDI editors.
once I disabled that the score wouldn’t record anymore.
It would be fantastic if there was a switch to toggle this in the actual midi / score editor. Best would be a “midi lock” icon so that I could still look at the score while recording other tracks. Once I toggle this I could then quickly also record midi in the score, which I guess is the default “simple” behavior. But looking at the score while recording another track is a huge productivity thing in my opinion. Any thoughts?
The other problem I am having is that the score will automatically close if I delete any other event on the track. Say if I do a take on the other MIDI track and don’t like it so I click to delete it, this immediately closes the score window. Even when I hit the space bar to stop Cubase the last recorded track gets focus and the score doesn’t show me what I want to see anymore.
It would be cool if I could make it less “context sensitive” and just stay on screen with that one score while I work on the other midi tracks or wave events; so this is another reason for a dedicated button. Sort of like a “read score” mode. With the current Cubase, is is actually possible to display 2 separate scores at the same time? E.g. if I wanted to show a piano track on the left and a violin on the right hand screen …
