Hello, when I maintain CTRL with the draw tool, I can “offset” the my tool from the grid line. Is there a way to customize it ? Like offset by -30 ms
Ctrl/Cmd temporarily disables the grid in the Key Editor.
There is no fixed offset.
Not that I know of, but you can enable the info bar.
Click the “Window Layout Settings” icon in the top right of the editor menu:
Enable the Info line.
This way you could first ‘select’ the notes you’d like to move, and then type in a specific position (different start time) to nudge the group of note on/off events together.
If you want to work in seconds instead, the status line can be changed from beats/bars to time in the main transport.
If your window arrangement doesn’t have a main transport easily available, Cubase comes with a default key binding of F2 to bring up a ‘floating’ transport. Tapping F2 again closes it.
You could also make a MIDI Logic Editor and then bind it to a key command of your choice to ‘tap-nudges’ for a certain amount. That’d give the ability to have quick nudges of ‘selected notes’.
In the Main Project Editor Window, from the main menu go to: MIDI/Logical Editor/Setup:
Build something like this…
MIDI Logic Editor to nudge selected events -10ms:
Name and Save the new MIDI Logical Editor…
To bind a key to it:
- In the Main Project Window choose Project/Key Commands.
- Set up a key binding.
That’s some very useful infos there, thanks.
I already setup the 30 ms nudge shortcut and assigned it to the right and left of my Logitech scroll wheel.
Currently not at home but can I have a view at seconds while still keeping bar beats in the key editor ? It’s not that big of deal, I could set a shortcut to switch between seconds and bar beats anyway
Not that I know of.
