MIDI Editors

There are several ways to edit MIDI in Cubase. You can use the tools and functions in the Project window for large-scale editing or the functions on the MIDI menu to process MIDI parts in various ways. To manually edit your MIDI data on a graphical interface, you can use the MIDI editors.

  • The Key Editor presents notes graphically in a piano roll-style grid. The Key Editor also allows for detailed editing of non-note events such as MIDI controllers.

  • The Score Editor shows MIDI notes as a musical score and provides advanced tools and functions for notation, layout, and printing.

  • The Drum Editor is similar to the Key Editor, but each key corresponds to a separate drum sound.

    You can use the Drum Editor to edit drum or percussion parts.

  • The List Editor shows all events in the selected MIDI parts as a list and allows you to view and edit their properties numerically. It also allows you to edit SysEx messages.

  • The In-Place Editor allows you to edit MIDI parts directly in the Project window so that you can edit MIDI in context with other track types.

    You can also edit MIDI in the Project Browser.
