incorporating additional recorded midi to existing clips

Post by baseinstinct » Thu May 01, 2008 4:22 am

I have a track for midi notes and one for drawing param tweak curves

the latter goes to the track armed with instrument (the parameters are given names then) and the notes go to an additional midi track routed to the instrument.

Now I want to record some fader automation from the midi keyboard (still the same instrument). It is supposed to be longer i.e. less repetious than the existing notephrase and param "drawings".

If it were to be the same length, new stuff could simply be overdubbed on the existing clips. But it isn't.

So what I need to do is:

1. create another midi track and route it to instrument track

2. record the faders

and what?

If I want it to be inside one of those mentioned existing clips I have to copy and paste the parameters (one at a time) there.

Is there a simpler way?
