Is there a way to select all MIDI notes in part?
Related VariAudio and MIDI parts behave different with several of the zoom and select commands. For example “Zoom Full” (shfit+f) for VariAudio zooms to all the audio for analyzed part and not just the Event Start and Event End. For for MIDI it is just the Part Start and End.
“Select Event” will select just the notes between the Event Start and End for VariAudio in Sample Editor but does nothing for MIDI in the Key Editor. To me it seems like it should select notes at least between the Part Start and End.
Select in loop for both editors behaves the same by selecting between the locators but my locators are often set different then the part start and end in the Key Editor so I can’t use that command to just select the notes between the MIDI part start and end which is what I am after.
Maybe something in the Project Logical Editor can help or possibly there is a key command I am missing here. I ideally would like one Macro that behaves the same for both VariAudio and MIDI notes to select all notes between start and end and of Key Editor Part Start and End for MIDI, and Event Start and End for VariAudio in the Sample Editor.
I realize that these different behaviors is related to trimmed audio being “Events” and multiple audio events grouped together being called a part. Versus for MIDI each MIDI note is considered an event (as in all DAW’s) and for MIDI to play it has to belong to a part which is not the case for audio. Unfortunately MIDI parts, especially since VariAudio was introduced, is much more like what is called AudioEvents. I wish grouped Audio Events were called “Part Groups” rather then groups of audio events (which is more like MIDI Parts) being called “Parts”. Then maybe Steinberg could make the key commands behave similar between audio and MIDI.
At any rate “Is there a way to select all MIDI notes in part?”
