Convert one CC or program change message into another.

Vel / CC / PB %
Increment velocities/CC/pitch-bend amount or set to fixed value.

Transpose or copy-transpose notes by interval.

Nudge MIDI or trim note starts/ends by grid, 10 ticks, or 1 frame.

The Selector

The Selector allows you to search for and manipulate MIDI data based on its properties— for example, delete notes within a range, select notes that fall rhythmically on a certain beat, mute a specific CC#, or filter a specific channel.

You can search an entire region, or within the current selection. The Selector is a powerful time-saver, making short work of tedious tasks like drum programming and score preparation.

Within the current selection, select notes between D#0 and C3.

Within the current selection, select the 5th sixteenth note in every bar.

In the entire region, select CC11.

The Selector also includes convenient post-selection actions.

The Selector can be zoomed full screen.

Control Bar

A contextual menu with rapid access to a variety of important MIDI editing actions such as grid, snapping, quantize, humanize, and channel assignment.
