yeah but that will shorten them, i wish to split them.

 

edit: i just figured i can just select everything then and copy it one 32th in front ;D

thanks!

should have figured out this one myself, i could just select them all, shorten them, and then copy them in front.

shish.

You could select all of the notes, then with the pointer resize the MIDI note length, then option drag to create duplicates.

 

EDIT: late on the post! You figured it out. Cheers.

And to think if splitting the Atom were this easy. :roll:

I have a question that is along the same lines ...

 

Let's say you have an 8 bar Audio Region, and want to split it (for whatever reason) @ every 1/4 note.

 

Simply get the Scissor Tool, hold Option, and then click on the first 1/4 note.

 

The rest of the cuts will happen automatically.

 

The same rule will apply with Midi Regions as well.

 

 

So my question is this: is there a way to do this with a single Midi note?

 

What I mean is (instead of using the UltraBeat Step Sequencer, or the Hyper Editor) let's say I want to quickly create 8 measures of 32nd note High Hats - I am going to have to Pencil in each note, right?

 

Can't I just Pencil in a single note that stretches over the entire 8 measures, and use the Scissor tool in conjunction with the Option key to create multiple cuts?

 

(FWIW - I didn't want to start a whole new thread for this question, and thought this fits into the topic in question)

Gee, David.

 

You should consider writing a book or something.

 

With all of your knowledge, you would be able to help a lot of noobs like me.

 

 

:lol:

 

Better yet - make a free version of your book so that all of us disabled jobless users can afford a copy.

 

That would be really groovy.

 

 

:lol:

 

On a serious note - thank you for the input. I over looked the function you mentioned.

 

Thank you.

 

Take care.

David - did I misunderstand you, or am I correct by assuming I should be able to use that scissor method on a single Midi note?

 

If I am correct with my assumption - then something is wrong, because it is not working.

 

Granted - the (Command-R) KC worked just like you said ... but it got me wondering why the process I mentioned earlier isn't working like I assumed it would.

 

make any sense?

 

Thanks

you want to slice notes like you slice regions in the arrange yes?

thats what i wanted to do to, but it didnt happen.

just create a note and slice the region, click "split", merge the region back.

this is the only way i can think of, because optioncut in pianoroll doesnt work

In the arrange window I penciled in a 1 measure region.

In the score window I entered a Whole note.

In the transport bar, I set the divisions to /64 (for example).

I set the zoom slider so the divisions were viewable in the Piano role.

I set the SPL (playhead) to anywhere on the note and used the scissor tool to 'split' the note into whatever divisions I wanted (you don't really need to position the SPL if you are good). The results are reflected in the score window. What used to be a whole note is now split into sub notes that can be moved and/or playedback.

Hey, Shiv.

 

Ok ... I with you all the way up until the

How do I do that with the SPL, exactly?

 

:oops:

 

Thanks

might be .... but I am gonna try your suggestion.

 

You always have good ideas.

 

Thanks

 

Thanks,

 

Someday, I will tell you about my Vaporization attachment I want to put on the front and back of my car. I will use it on aggressive drivers or the idiots who decide to cut in front of me and drive slow.

 

Also, my remote clicker to disable/ fry out the radio/CD player in the cars that drive by my house with the Volume on '11'

 

 

Them: BOOM-Da Da BOOM BOOM BOOM

 

Me: 'Click'

 

Them: (total silence) :evil: WTF!!! :cry:

Unless I'm missing something... what does that have to do with this thread? We're trying to slice a MIDI note, which you can't do in Logic. You can slice a region, but not a note. Of course you can manually cut up a note with scissors, but that's not the point, what Waterboy wanted to do is a "Divide Multiple" (Option-scissors) on a single note. And that does not work.

The questions were about splitting a note from a 16th value to a 32nd value.

I guess my reply had nothing to do with that. I am such a 'tard! :?
