Opening an Editor

The Project window has only minimal tools for editing MIDI data and no tools whatsoever for creating MIDI data. To put something in an empty MIDI part, you need to open the part in an editor. One method is simply to double-click the MIDI part with the Object Selection tool—the arrow. This opens the MIDI Key editor, which is commonly used for editing MIDI. However, Cubase also includes Drum, List, and Score editors, which may be more appropriate for your needs. You'll learn what these editors do later in the chapter. Here's how to open any of these editors.

To open a MIDI part in an editor

1.
In the Project window, click the part you want to open, to select it (Figure 6.5).

Figure 6.5. It's hard to see in this illustration, but a red outline surrounding this MIDI part shows that it is selected.


2.
Right-click (Mac users with one-button mice must use the MIDI menu at the top of the Project window) the part to open the contextual menu.

3.
Choose MIDI and then select the editor you want to open (Figure 6.6).

Figure 6.6. This contextual menu includes many options, including options to open a part in any MIDI editor.


The MIDI part opens in the editor you select.
