Overlay midi editing?

Post by NoobComposer » Wed Mar 25, 2020 12:05 am

I'm a beginner and I haven't been able to find how to overlay one midi track with another, the area where all the notes are at. So you can make sure they line up with notes from other instruments. Is there such a feature, I think it would be very useful.

Good morning,

This is not a feature of Mixcraft yet but it is often requested which means chances are pretty good it will be incorporated into MC in the future.

Here's a possible work around..
Move the tracks under each other, enlarge them all and then zoom in; using the play cursor to check alignment..
Here I have 2 MIDI tracks with an audio track.

I do the same Trevor, just put the tracks next to each other, size and zoom as needed. It works fine for me.
Stay in tune, Mark

I was just researching that very same thing in Mixcraft, I also found that it can be quite useful, especially in changing progression, etc (which I am just learning). :D
I will use the work around for now.
