In Edit mode, you can view and edit MIDI parameters and performance data using any of six separate data editors, called lanes. For example, on a track that contains a piano part, you can use the key lane to draw/edit/erase notes (see Figure 3.22). Or if you are using a Dr:rex loop player in a song, you can use the REX lane to edit its individual notes (see Figure 3.23). To access any of these lanes, just click on their respective buttons, found in the upper-left corner of the Sequencer toolbar (see Figure 3.24). Figure 3.22 The key lane. Figure 3.23 The REX lane. Figure 3.24 The Lane buttons are used to access any Lane Editor when in Edit mode. The Editing and Quantization Tools This next section takes a first look at the Editing and Quantization tools of the Sequencer toolbar (see Figure 3.25). By using these tools effectively, you can draw/erase/edit notes, automate your mix, and correct any timing problems with ease and precision.
