Hello to whom it may concern.

Yesterday Gregor did another great session life answering questions related to midi. It seems that it is not possible to edit midi notes and cc controllers(expression,modulation,etc) simultaneously on more than one track without clicking pensil assignment that changes that track to another.

Maybe it would have been very useful to add function that allows choose more track to edit simultaneously without changing the track every time  you want to change any particular note or cc controller.

Thank you very much best regards

You can select and edit (copy, paste, move, split, etc.) notes from different tracks at the same time.

That's not possible for MIDI CC part automation. But you can easily copy part automation and paste it on another track ("Paste at Original Position"). Just select another track and press Cmd+Shift+V / Ctrl+Shift+V.

I agree. Especially when you have very similar instruments like violin 1 & 2 playing in octaves for example (perhaps doubled by a flute, and oboe), but you want to have the same modulation and expression curves. Especially when sketching out a track stuff can change quite a lot, and you don't want to keep updating that in different tracks all the time.

I agree, now in the morning for example i need to edit the woodwinds section, and it take a lot of time edit each midi cc each instruments, many of them are the same. You can activate record, in many tracks, and record simultaniusly on each of them. but if need to edit, you can't do that at the same tame, is very slow.

Instantly upvoted - Please Presonus, for the love of God, make it possible to draw, select, edit, copy and paste multiple CC part automation at once.
