The Staff View

SONAR provides three different tools for editing MIDI data: the Event view, the Piano Roll view, and the Staff view. For really precise numerical editing, the Event view can’t be beat. For precise graphical editing of both MIDI note and controller data, the Piano Roll view is the tool you’ll want to use. (I described the Event and Piano Roll views in Chapter 7.) Many musicians, however, are used to composing and editing in standard music notation. The Staff view comes into play at this point.

Using the Staff view (see Figure 13.1), you can add, edit, and delete MIDI note data within your MIDI tracks. The Staff view looks similar to sheet music on a piece of paper and represents notes as standard music notation and guitar tablature on musical staves with clefs, key signatures, time signatures, and many of the other symbols you might expect to see on a sheet of music.
