Snap END of midi note to grid?

Post by Jazzius » Sat Jan 27, 2018 11:34 am

Hey folks,

Any way to grab the end of a midi note (whose start point is NOT on the grid) and have it (the end of the note) snap to the grid?

I fear it's not normally possible.

Perhaps a macro or logical editor thang?

Urgh.........this is so basic, why isn't there a simple modifier like ctrl + drag snaps it to the grid instead of to the grid + offset?

I need to do this all the time, any way to kludge this via the logical editor?

I totally agree with you. One should be able to simply drag the ends and have them snap to the grid.
There is a command that let's you snap the selected midi ends to the grid (Quantize MIDI Events Ends) that should help out.

Ok, thanks, that's a pretty decent workaround.

I'm new to Cubase coming from Pro Tools and this was immediately one of my pet peeves. Dragging the ends of MIDI notes and having them snap to the grid was something I did all the time in PT. In Cubase having to go to functions and then select quantize event ends just is not acceptable to me. I'm probably going to end up creating a macro but it should just be default behavior when I drag note ends with snap on.
