Hi Raino, that is very good work!
Too much to ask if you could share some macros and logical edits?
Like "every other note vel -4", and the inversions and drops?

Sure here is the every other

Although an alternative way to select based on bar position is often more useful

The drops and inversions are just regular Key Commands in the Chords section.

Hi Raino, do you know if there is a way for the "every other" LE to work with ONLY SELECTED notes? I put property....the event is selected, and the script does nothing.
It seems it needs to work with unselected notes? but then I would be processing all the notes inside the midi event?

thanks!

If you have the Function at the bottom set to Select it behaves differently than if it is set to Transform.

Transform works like you'd want. If you Select some but not all of the Notes in a Part and run the Preset 'every other note minus 4' you will find it only changes the Velocity on the Selected Notes. But if you change the Function to Select (which will ignore the lower section) and run it the results will be: All the Notes initially selected AND every other unselected Note.

See attached GIF

The only workaround I can think of is to create an LE Preset that Transforms some parameter you don't care about (for example; MIDI Channel or Voice) and then create a second Preset to select based on that Parameter. Then make a Macro from the two. Haven't actually tried this but expect it will work. A refinement would be to add a 3rd Preset that sets the parameter back to its initial value.

Wow, you even took time to prepare a gif, thanks!

Re: Controllers (Stream Deck) vs. Keyboard

Post by Rhialto99 »

This looks so useful. Would you be willing to share your icons or config file or whatever it is that sets it up for Cubase like that? I'm very tempted to get one of these but I dread figuring that part out from scratch. :)

Of course I use key commands as well, but also the Stream Deck and I even have some key commands stored in my mouse (Roccat Tyon). I am sure you could also make good music using just a plastic bucket, but a guitar or keyboard are still nice to have if you know what I mean (;

Using the Stream Deck comes in handy when you work long hours or when you are under time pressure, its nice to have a little helper to make your workflow a little smoother and can fall back on colorful easy to read icons that don't need much brain power.

It's also great if you work with many apps (like Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Cubase, Wavelab). Good luck remembering 200+ key commands. Stream Deck can sense which app you are working with and will then serve you the icons you need. Its also great for a URL link list. I just got done configuring it to use IFTTT... with it I can now control all my smart home devices, turn on / off lights, air condition heating aso. Pretty nerdy but very convenient.

I find it very helpful because you can use it for many things (also for streaming with OBS). If you want more icons, there is also the Stream Deck XL which has 32 LCD keys.
