Chapter 17. Editing MIDI > Editing MIDI Notes Manually

Editing MIDI Notes Manually

You can use the Grabber tool to manually move, copy, and transpose MIDI notes. This is an easy way to fix minor timing problems or to copy notes to other parts of a session.

To copy MIDI notes manually:

1.
If you’re not in Notes view, select Notes from the Track View selector.

2.
Using the Grabber tool, click and drag to select the notes to be copied.

3.
Position the Grabber tool over any of the selected notes (Figure 17.18).

Figure 17.18. The Grabber tool is positioned to copy three notes. Clicking on any note copies all selected notes.


4.
While pressing Shift-Option (Macintosh) or Shift-Ctrl (Windows), click and drag the MIDI notes to the new desired location.

The Shift key keeps MIDI notes from changing pitch when you move them (more on this soon). The Option or Ctrl key copies the notes.

5.
Release the mouse when you’ve moved the notes where you wish.

The notes are copied and selected (Figure 17.19).
