Chapter 10. Editing MIDI

Chapter 10. Editing MIDI

MIDI is more than just notes—it's a powerful tool that's fantastic for experimentation, because MIDI data is almost infinitely editable. After you record or enter MIDI, you can instantly change the pitch, timing, key, duration, and nearly any other parameter, with no loss in sound quality. And you can also use MIDI to control effects processors, synthesizers, samplers, and, in some instances, mixers or even lights.

Cubase includes very advanced tools for editing and transforming MIDI once it has been recorded. In this chapter, you will learn some of the differences between editing audio and editing MIDI. You will learn much more about the Key editor, including how to modify MIDI notes and how to view and modify MIDI continuous controller (CC) data. You will learn about quantizing, which you can use to make detailed and exacting edits to the timing of a MIDI part. At the end of this chapter, you will learn to use the List editor, which offers an extremely detailed look at all MIDI data in a project and enables precision editing of MIDI.
