You can freely create new lanes to display and edit MIDI data such as velocity, modulation, pitch bend and CCs (Continuous Controllers) and events can be moved and copied between lanes.
To show the Controller pane, click the Piano Roll view View menu and choose Show/Hide Controller Pane, or press ALT+C.
A. Velocity lane B. Wheel lane C. Remove lane D. CC92 lane E. Add new lane F. Edit Filter G. Scale pane H. Controller pane
The Controller pane allows you to display and edit non-note MIDI data, such as velocity, modulation, pitch bend and continuous controllers (CCs), in multiple lanes at the bottom of the Piano Roll view.
While the Track pane can show multiple event types simultaneously, each MIDI data lane displays only a single event type. MIDI data lanes allow you to easily show only the parameters you are interested in, without cluttering up the interface with numerous overlapping events.
MIDI data lanes cannot be reordered or resized. The height of all MIDI data lanes is determined by the height of the Controller pane.
2.
Click the Plus button in the bottom left corner of any existing lane.
A new lane is inserted below the lane that was clicked. SONAR will try to automatically assign the lane to any event type that exists in the track, provided the event type is not already assigned to another lane. Existing event types are assigned based on the following priority list:
2.
3.
5.
6.
If no event types exist in the track, the MIDI Event Type dialog box appears, which lets you specify the desired event type.
To delete an existing lane, click the Minus button in the top left corner of the lane.
The button is not available if there is only one lane open. To remove the last lane, simply hide the Controller pane (click the Piano Roll view View menu and choose Show/Hide Controller Pane).
2.
Select an existing event type in the pop-up menu, or select New Value Type to specify a new event type.
3.
Click Copy selected events to this lane.
Note: It is impossible to copy selected events to a lane that has an edit type of Velocity; the type of event to transform to would be Note and the pitch could not be specified in this case. In this case, the Copy selected events to this lane menu command will be disabled and appear grayed out.
A. Scale pane B. Right-click the lane in the scale pane
3.
Click Move selected events to this lane.
Note: It is impossible to move selected events to a lane that has an edit type of Velocity; the type of event to transform to would be Note and the pitch could not be specified in this case. In this case, the Move selected events to this lane menu command will be disabled and appear grayed out.
