Chapter 6. Entering MIDI Manually > Expanding the Note Display

Expanding the Note Display

Most windows in Cubase let you zoom the view on both the vertical and horizontal axes. Because of the way the Key editor works, the vertical axis is particularly important when entering MIDI notes. With too much showing, it's easy to enter the wrong note; with too little showing, it's hard to find the note you want to create. You can set the Key editor so that the keyboard on the left displays from one to seven octaves. Viewing more octaves makes it easier to see what is going on with the music, but it's much easier to click the correct note when the Note display is zoomed in.

To change the Note display

1.
Click the Zoom slider at the right side of the Key editor (Figure 6.13).

Figure 6.13. The Zoom slider in the Key editor, here at roughly its default position.


2.
Drag the slider up to see more notes in the Note display, to get an overview of the whole MIDI part (Figure 6.14).

Figure 6.14. With the Zoom slider all the way up, many notes can be viewed, but they are quite small on the vertical axis.


3.
Drag the slider down to see fewer notes in the Note display, to see them in the most detail (Figure 6.15).

Figure 6.15. The Zoom slider is now all the way down, showing far fewer notes, but the notes are much larger.
