MIDI Editors

There are several ways to edit MIDI in Cubase. You can use the tools and functions in the Project window for large-scale editing or the functions on the MIDI menu to process MIDI parts in various ways. To manually edit your MIDI data on a graphical interface, you can use the MIDI editors.

  • The Key Editor presents notes graphically in a piano roll-style grid. The Key Editor also allows for detailed editing of non-note events such as MIDI controllers.

  • The Score Editor shows MIDI notes as a musical score and provides advanced tools and functions for notation, layout, and printing.

    Cubase Artist features a basic version of the Score Editor.

  • The Drum Editor is similar to the Key Editor, but each key corresponds to a separate drum sound.

    You can use the Drum Editor to edit drum or percussion parts.

  • The List Editor shows all events in the selected MIDI parts as a list and allows you to view and edit their properties numerically. It also allows you to edit SysEx messages.

  • The In-Place Editor allows you to edit MIDI parts directly in the Project window so that you can edit MIDI in context with other track types.

    Cubase Pro only: You can also edit MIDI in the Project Browser.
