Chapter 6. Entering MIDI Manually > Muting and Deleting Notes

Muting and Deleting Notes

As easy as it is to make mistakes playing a musical instrument, it's probably even easier to make mistakes when entering notes with a mouse. The painting action described in the preceding section is also particularly prone to occasionally creating unwanted notes. Fortunately, you can use the Eraser and Mute tools in Cubase to fix your mistakes by deleting notes or by muting a note or two in a part without actually losing the MIDI data. As their names suggest, the Eraser tool deletes data completely, and the Mute tool prevents the selected note from sounding during playback.

To delete MIDI notes with the Eraser tool

1.
In the Note display, right-click on the note and select Erase from the contextual menu (Figure 6.33), or select the Erase tool from the toolbar.

The pointer turns into an eraser.

2.
Click any note to delete it (Figure 6.34).
