Auto select row when key is pressed?

Enabling this button in the Step Sequencer Editor will select the row (and create one before, if necessary), but also create a step for the pressed key. No idea if that's what you're looking for.

 

Thanks. If it didn’t create the step that would be great. It’s just that since we can’t rename rows (or at least not that I’m aware of, sometimes looking at rows with just note names is a bit confusing. At least playing a note on the keyboard, hearing a Snare and then highlighting/selecting the row would be so much faster

 

But thanks note that tip. Maybe I can use that and then Undo or something. ;)

Of course you can rename rows. In the Row Inspector. EDIT: Just checked, 10.6.3 indeed does not offer this. 10.7 and later only

 

Yeah I was checking on mine and I can’t :(

 

It’s so weird they didn’t include this when they introduced the step sequencer. It’s such a basic feature

BTW for Drum Kit Designer and Drum Machine Designer, the Step Sequencer editor will also display the drum instrument name for each MIDI note.

 

I just tested and even though it shows a “custom” name, it keeps the original name of the file. If you edit the name inside DMD, it won’t update inside the step sequencer unless you close the Step Sequencer tab and open it again. Better than nothing, but a bit annoying. Also, it adds “- Notes” in front of the name. Makes no sense…

 

But again, better than nothing :) Thanks for that extra tip

The bug you describe is fixed in 10.7.2, I just checked that. Also, 10.7.2 displays the notes as - , i.e. no longer with the note name at the start.

Sorry when I said “in front” I meant at the end, as you described.

For example “Kick - Notes”.

That’s how I see it now. It literally says “Notes”.

Maybe you’re saying it now shows the actual note like “Kick - C#3”?

Sorry that was Drum Kit Designer (which indeed now shows it like that and not, like on 10.6.3, "C#3: Kick")

DMD still shows - , e.g. "Kick 1 - Crate Digger" (which means your DMD kit is named "Notes").

Oh never mind. I’m such an idiot hahaha

Sure, that’s the name of my track :)

Since the default step sequencer rows have originally musical notes like C2 etc as names, I thought it was a bug. Thanks for reminding me. Really appreciate it :)

I was gonna try this trick, but my Step Sequencer Editor doesn't have that option. Only the green button...

Maybe this is another feature from 10.7?
