Can you draw curves in the Step Editor window?

You can use hyper draw in the Tracks area, Piano Roll or Score Editor instead.

MIDI Draw, Eric, MIDI Draw. :lol: But yes I was thinking the same thing: no, the Step Editor does not have curves or S curves. For curves and S curves, use MIDI Draw. You can then see your work in the Step editor and continue your work there if you want.

Ok great! I really wish Apple would consolidate the Midi Draw and Step Editor into just one thing.

Why? They are two different tools to edit the same data. Just like the Piano Roll and the Score editor are two different tools to edit the same data (MIDI notes in a MIDI region).

 

IMO they really serve different purposes. MIDI Draw allows you to draw the curves corresponding to the values you want without thinking of the actual MIDI values being created by Logic in the background in order to recreate your curve drawings. Step editor shows you every single MIDI event and allows you to define the grid resolution, you can see multiple MIDI events, CC or note or others, on their own lanes, which makes it great for example for drum programming, or step-sequenced effects, etc.

Hmm, I guess I see your point. But for me, sometimes it's hard to know what I'm editing when I'm in the Step Editor because the midi notes aren't there for reference.
