Thanks for replying. I wasn’t particularly clear there. I have no problem with midi parts in the project window - that’s useful and why I would like to see it refined with the ability to trim.
I’m aware that other people have other workflows, and I certainly wouldn’t expect everyone to be set up the way I am as a TV composer.
I struggle with part concept in the key editor where I can only see the selected part and not the whole track (if I’ve recorded cc auomation in a different pass for example). Yes, I can select all on tracks or glue (but doesn’t help my trim request!) to get this it should be more straightforward than that imo.
It also annoys me when the key editor disappears when I delete a midi part. Maybe this is more of an aesthetic thing where I have my most used windows open in workspaces set up and ready to go … but key editor is dependent on a midi part and can’t be open without one.
I came from Sonar which doesn’t have these issues. It intelligently controls midi parts on the project window (and allows trim) and the key editor is for the track not for the part and doesn’t disappear when there’s no midi part. I switched for other reasons 3-4 years ago and whilst I adapted pretty easily and prefer most things in Cubase some things, including the juggling of midi parts and the disappearing key editor, irritate me on an hourly/daily basis.
I would be interested to know how midi parts are useful in other peoples’ workflow - maybe I’m missing a trick.
