Drawing Note Events with the Draw Tool

The Draw tool allows you to insert single note events in the note display.

When you move the cursor inside the note display, its position is indicated on the status line. Its pitch is indicated both on the status line and on the piano keyboard to the left.

  • To draw a note, click in the note display.

    The note event has the length that is set on the Length Quantize pop-up menu.

  • To draw longer note events, click and drag in the note display.

    The length of the note event is a multiple of the Length Quantize value. If Length Quantize is set to Quantize Link, the note value is determined by the quantize grid. The Snap function is taken into account.


To temporarily switch from the Object Selection tool to the Draw tool, hold down Alt/Opt.
