Chapter 7. Editing Basics > Using the Piano Roll View

Using the Piano Roll View

By manipulating the tracks and clips in your project you can change the overall structure, but to fix single-note mistakes and make smaller changes, you need to do some precision editing. You do so by selecting individual or multiple tracks or clips in the Track view and then using the View menu to open the data within one of the other available views. For editing MIDI data, that would be the Piano Roll view. (You also can edit MIDI data as standard music notation in the Staff view, which I’ll talk about in Chapter 13, “Making Sheet Music.”)

Using the Piano Roll view (see Figure 7.32), you can add, edit, and delete MIDI note and controller data within your MIDI tracks. Looking somewhat like a player-piano roll, the Piano Roll view represents notes as colored shapes on a grid display with the pitches of the notes designated by an onscreen music keyboard.
