Splitting midi clips, HOW?!?!?

Post by Sureno » Tue Jul 16, 2019 7:02 pm

So I use capture quite a bit but a massive issue I find is when I find a section 1 bar in a 8 bar midi clip I can’t split it?!?!? In arrange I use cmd+e and that visibly splits the clip but upon going into clip view the midi notes still don’t start at the start of the clip but have the old positioning which is visible, when I consolidate after cmd+e all notes that start before the new midi clip disappear, how do I cut a section of midi so it cuts the notes as well???

Kind regards

Just highlight the section you want then right-click in the editor and choose to either loop the region or if you don't need the rest of the clip, crop it.

You cannot "split" it because it is not on a timeline. If you would like to make multiple clips and select different regions for each, duplicate the clip before editing.
