Just wondering if anyone here would have any advice on this issue in Cubase 6.

I'd like to improve my workflow when editing Midi CC controller events in the controller lanes of the Key Editor window.

I generally record just note on/off data first and then go back and write in CC11 and a few other CC controller events with my mouse. What I'd like to be able to do is roughly write an event with the pencil at a certain point in the controller lane and then be able to adjust the value of the event with a piece of hardware - either AI knob, midi fader, mouse wheel, or even rotary knob. So say if I write an event in with a value of 41 on beat 2 of the bar, and I would like to change that to 45 without moving the event forward or backwards in time.

I currently don't have anything with an AI knob but would definitely consider getting something if it had this functionality. Like if i could just select a controller event with the mouse (in my right hand) and then move it up or down with my left hand. I find when I grab things and try and move them with the mouse I amn't very accurate and my hand gets sore over long periods.

Anyone got any advice?

Thanks in advance

The logical editor will do what you need. You can then assign your logical editor preset to a key command or trigger it with a generic remote. I highly reccomend Lemur for iPad for triggering editing functions. But if it's just moving CC data up or down vertically, when you select a cc region with your mouse you can drag it up or down pretty easily by hovering your cursor over the top portion of the CC lane. Three dots will appear at the top left, top middle, and top right, and then you can drag those points to reshape the data.

Good God man!  Unless you're something 'special' you only have two index fingers and all that clickety click! click! click! is sure to break them off your hand like little twigs.  Then the next time you point your finger at somebody, you're going to use your middle finger and they're going to get the wrong idea.  Know what I mean, JellybeanBig Smile

Why not just record the MIDI data in realtime with a wheel or fader or foot pedal or something.  Do you not have that on your MIDI controller?  I hate it Angry everytime I have to go back and edit MIDI data after recording it realtime.  Too time consuming.

Or am I misunderstanding your postEmbarrassed

Unfortunately, you're not misunderstanding my post. I am indeed being as laborious and anal as you fear. I'm hopelessly slow at the moment but learning lots about the note ADSR of different orchestral instruments in different situations
