Inserting Drum Note Events

You can insert note events with the Object Selection tool or the Drumstick tool.


You have set up the Insert Length on the toolbar to determine the length of the inserted note. If Insert Length is set to Drum-Map Link, the note gets the length of the Snap value set for the sound in the drum sound list. You have activated Snap.


If you want to snap positions according to the Quantize Presets setting on the toolbar, activate Use Quantize.

    • Select the Object Selection tool and double-click in the event display.

    • Select the Drumstick tool and click in the event display.


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


A note event is inserted.
