Chapter 10. Editing MIDI > Filtering Data in the List Editor

Filtering Data in the List Editor

One of the most important tools in the List editor lets you specify not what the editor shows, but what it does not show. The List editor can contain thousands of pieces of MIDI data, and finding the information you want can be next to impossible unless some of the data is filtered out of the view. To do this, Cubase uses a clever set of check boxes available via the Filter view. In the following task, you will see how to filter controller information to get a better view of note data. This particular part has a ton of CC messages, but dozens of screens would be needed if all the data were displayed.

To filter MIDI data in the List editor

Open a MIDI part in the List editor, using the MIDI menu or the contextual menu for a MIDI part.

Click the Show Filter View button (Figure 10.66) if it isn't already selected. The settings for filtering data will be visible directly beneath the toolbar.

Figure 10.66. This button is used to show the options for filtering visible data in the List editor.

Select the types of controller data you do not wish to see (Figure 10.67).

Figure 10.67. Selecting the Controller box will hide all CC data in the list.

In this example, selecting the Controller button will mask out controller data in the editor. With controller data filtered, all of the notes in the MIDI part can be seen easily (Figure 10.68). Compare this to Figure 10.65, which shows the same part without controller data filtered.
