Step Entry/Editing

Step editing is a useful mode for entering melodies note by note using your controller keyboard (or computer keyboard if Typing Keyboard to Piano is enabled).

  1. Enable step recording: Access the step recording switch from the Snap Panel or Options menu. In the Step Sequencer, select the channel you want to step edit. You don't need to press record to start step-entry.
  2. Enter notes: Each time you press a note-key on your controller keyboard a new note is added to the Piano roll. The cursor position advances to the next step automatically. The note length is equal to the snap size in the Snap Panel. 'Line' is useful as the Piano roll Zoom level then controls the note length.
  3. Deselect step entry: Done!

NOTE: - To record into the Step Sequencer in 'step-mode' select the F10> MIDI option 'Record to Step Sequencer'.
