copy paste just midi notes without affecting automation?

Post by CancerRidden » Tue Feb 26, 2013 5:54 am

I want to copy over the notes of a section in the song, over to another section but I don't want to affect the automation that I have created (some cutoff automation).

I only want to move the MIDI notes over, nothing else.

Every way I try to copy them over seems to also copy over the automation.

Thank you.

After going through the manual I believe there is a setting in regards to a "lock" icon...

I've been scanning the screen for the past 3 minutes I don't see a lock icon...

where is it ? :oops:

Found it, I included a picture with the icon circled in the top right of corner in case anybody else stumbles upon this thread via google.
