Dissolve Part

The Dissolve Part function on the MIDI menu allows you to separate MIDI events according to channels or pitches:

  • When you work with MIDI parts (on MIDI channel “Any”) containing events on different MIDI channels, activate the “Separate Channels” option.

  • To separate MIDI events according to pitch, activate the “Separate Pitches” option.

    Typical examples are drum and percussion tracks, where different pitches usually correspond to separate drum sounds.


When dissolving a part into either separate channels or separate pitches, you can automatically remove the silent (empty) areas of the resulting parts by activating the “Optimized Display” checkbox in the Dissolve Part dialog. This option is not available when “Dissolve to Lanes” is activated.
