MIDI tracks have a control called the MIDI Scale. This control displays a vertical ruler labeled with MIDI values (in 7bit Values mode) or MIDI notes (in Notes mode), giving you a visual guide for editing notes and controllers. The MIDI Scale is also a vertical zoom control. If a track uses a Drum Map, the MIDI Scale for that track displays the Drum Map’s note names on the track’s MIDI Scale (in Notes mode).Figure 222.

1. Put the MIDI Scale into notes mode by right-clicking the MIDI Scale and choosing Notes from the pop-up menu.
2. Hold the mouse over the MIDI Scale so that the cursor changes to a small vertical keyboard, and drag upward to zoom in. The Inline Piano Roll view zooms in.
Note: In Notes mode, if the track is zoomed-out too far, there is not enough room in the MIDI Scale to display the keyboard. To see the keyboard, you need to zoom in far enough to display the keyboard.
Right-click the MIDI Scale and choose Fit Content from the pop-up menu.
To audition and select all notes within a certain range, SHIFT-drag through the notes’ range of pitches in the MIDI Scale.
Right-click the MIDI Scale to display the pop-up menu, and choose either 7bit Values (this displays MIDI values), or Notes (this displays the keyboard).
