Drum Editor Inspector

The Inspector is located to the left of the note display. The inspector contains tools and functions for working with MIDI data.

Expression Map

Allows you to load an expression map. Expression maps are useful for working with articulations.


Allows you to access the main quantize parameters. These are identical with the functions on the Quantize Panel.


Contains length-related options, similar to the Functions submenu of the MIDI menu.

  • To change the length of the selected MIDI events or all events of the active part if no events are selected, use the Scale Length/Scale Legato slider.

    At the maximum value the notes reach the beginning of the next note.

  • To make the new length settings permanent, click Freeze MIDI Lengths to the right of the Scale Length/Scale Legato slider.

  • To fine-tune the distance between consecutive notes, use the Overlap slider.

    At 0 Ticks, the Scale Length/Scale Legato slider extends each note so that it reaches the next note exactly. Positive values cause the notes to overlap and negative values allow you to define a small gap between the notes.

  • To use the Legato function or slider to extend a note until the next selected note, activate Between Selected.

    This is identical with activating the Legato Mode: Between Selected Notes Only option in the Preferences dialog.


Allows you to open a dialog to edit the Inspector settings for the editor. Click Setup Inspector , and from the pop-up menu, select Setup.


These sections are also featured by the editor Inspector for the editor in the lower zone.
