MIDI Editing Oddities

Post » Mon Nov 24, 2014 3:30 am

So this is more of an annoyance than a problem. Many times when I have inline-editing enabled for a MIDI track, I'll usually double-click the piece of MIDI data to edit its velocity. More times than not, the editing won't "take" if you will. What I mean is, if I draw some MIDI data, the velocity defaults to 64. I would often enter a higher number. I would play it back. It would sound just as soft as before. I would double-click it again to find out that the velocity had never been changed. Sometimes I have to double-click twice, sometimes it "takes" on the first try, and sometime I have to do it four times! I mostly use MIDI for drums, but I found out it also does it for synths.
I don't have this problem if I right-click and use the Velocity -> Set to... menu. That's why I'm not terribly bothered by this, but I am wondering if this happens to anyone else.

I encountered the same issue, a day ago after setting the new value then getting back to it I find the values unchanged. I think there's another way around, look in the "View" menu, i think there's an option to see the velocity like vertical lines with diamond shaped tips which you can adjust by dragging it up & down. I cant remember the name of the function but its there just look somewhere near at the bottom options.
