Step Editor

The Step Editor displays notes or controller events for selected MIDI regions as beams in a user-defined time grid. You can easily add or edit note velocities or other controller data (making some editing tasks, such as data scaling, much faster), or quickly create and edit MIDI drum parts.

  • Lane parameters: Determine the type of event displayed or modified. When you select a row in the name column, its event definition is shown in the Lane inspector.
