AutomationCreating and editing automation envelopes ► Converting MIDI controllers to envelopes

MIDI controllers you edit in the Piano Roll view and MIDI envelopes you create in the Track view Clips pane are actually separate data, even if they control the same parameter. Both kinds of envelopes are visible in the Clips pane, and should generally not be used to control the same parameter. You can convert Piano Roll view envelopes to Track view envelopes by selecting the time range and tracks that the Piano Roll envelopes occupy, and using Track view Clips > Convert MIDI Controllers To Envelopes command.
2.
In the Track view menu, select Clips > Convert MIDI Controllers to Envelopes.
The Convert MIDI To Shapes dialog box appears.
3.
In the Type field, select the type of controller you want to convert.
4.
In the Value field, select the controller number of the controller you want to convert. For example, if you’re converting a volume envelope to a shape, select 7.
5.
In the Channel field, select the channel of the controller you want to convert, and click OK.
Note: If two clips overlap, the Clips > Convert MIDI Controllers to Envelopes command converts the controller envelopes in both clips, in whatever parts of the clips lie in the selected time range.
