Re: Trim MIDI event length

Forum member Bo Clausen has some great macros (so do a search on his name.. I'm pretty sure he has posted a macro that does what I am about to describe, all in one go ;) )…
Anyways, these are the steps..
1) Open the Part in the Key Editor, and select the desired range.
2) Transport menu>"Locators to Selection" (or Key Command "P")
3) Close the Key Editor
4) Edit menu>Functions>"Split Loop"
You now have your original Part split into three sections, with the MIDI content in the middle one.
5) Select all three Parts
6) Edit menu>Process Project Logical Editor>Parts + Events>"Delete Empty Parts"

Re: Iro: Track Color Pack for Cubase

Seyoum has been extremely generous by sharing his knowledge with the community.........and I thank him!...
~ ~ ~
...Does anyone else want to share their colors, as well? Or possibly explain how it's done, so we can all jump in and help the community?

Sure, I'll chime back in, as I've done this myself.

I haven't altered any lately, so I have none to share that top what Seyoum has provided, but we can all continue either from using his or the stock ones.

1. In the toolbar at the very top, right click in the drop down menu and check 'Color Menu' [if not done already].

It will appear as a grey box with a small down arrow at the right of it.
[If you have 'Show Tips' selected in the 'General' section of the Preferences, it will show 'Select Colors' when you hover your mouse over it.]

2. Click on that down arrow & the drop down menu will display 'Default Color' [to click on to change the current track color], followed by all the colors currently available, followed by 'Project Colors...' down at the bottom.

3. Click 'Project Colors...' and it will expand.

4. If you click on any existing color, a color palette window opens whereby you can drag to a new shade or tone vs. the 'Current Color' and click 'New Color', and it will then be saved as is.

5. Otherwise, if you click on 'Options' at the bottom, another menu pops up.

6. Click 'Append New Color', and a white box named 'New Color' will be added at the bottom. [You could also click on 'Insert New Color Before Selection' to place it elsewhere.]

7. Click on the white box to shade it any color you like using the color palette.

8. Click 'New Color'.

9. Click to the right to rename it, ie: Piano, Guitar if you like color consistency between projects. That way you won't have to guess or remember what you used before. :?

10. Click to the right of the new name to continue on with others or click 'OK'.

*However, 'OK' only saves this for the current song [project].


11. Click 'Save Current Set As Program Defaults'.

One of the other options is 'Load Program Defaults To Current Set' to use with other projects.

It's a good idea to set up a song [project] template with this as well.

That should do it.

Re: Trim MIDI event length

I have just tried your macro, and there is indeed something going wrong (the macro itself seems perfect ;) )..
It would appear that when using the function "Split Loop" (whether via a macro or directly), when there is a CC# event at the Right Locator, that CC# event is deemed to be after the Right Locator. (in other words.. not your fault at all.. I'd even go so far as to say.. a bug! ;) ).
So, I have managed to concoct something that will advance the pedal off data by one tick, so that the last one remains inside the range before splitting (and, hopefully, any other pedal off events..which will also get advanced by one tick, unfortunately, shouldn't make any appreciable difference to the rest of the performance**). You need to create a Logical Editor Preset (NB.. Logical Editor, not Project Logical Editor ;) ), then add that Preset to your macro, immediately after the line "Transport - Locators to Selection".

[Important] Also, make sure that in Preferences>Editing>MIDI, that "Split MIDI Controllers" is not checkmarked.

Here's the Logical Editor Preset..

Upper Section..
Type Is___Equal___Controller___And
Value 1___Equal___64___And
Value 2___Equal___0

Lower Section..
Position___Subtract___0.00.00.001 PPQ

Function = "Transform".

Save the Logical Editor Preset, with an easily recognisable name, e.g. "Advance Pedal Off",
then edit your macro so that after the line "Transport - Locators to Selection", you insert "Process Logical Preset - Advance Pedal Off", followed by the remainder of your existing macro.

Anyways, it's a bug, and not your fault ;).

I didn't think it would be worth the extra effort to try to isolate just that last pedal off event, but you might want to try having a go at that, one evening when the TV is lousy ;).
