Default How to Clear "MIDI" effects

Is there a quick way to clear all the MIDI effects.

Like Volume, Wheel etc.

I have one tune I borrowed off the internet it must have been done from a MIDI keyboard. But I'd like it to only have the effects as if I wrote it from scratch in Notation Composer.

I have cleared (or set constant) Modulation Wheel, Pan, Expression, Volume but I still hear some stuff.

Sort of like "As Noted" for note duration, but reset everything "As Noted".

To see what types of MIDI controllers have been used in a file:

1. Click on Graph Over Notes
2. Click the "Ctl" button that has the red "?" on it.
3. Look at the list. Any cc's that have an asterisk "*" beside them have some kind of value in the file.

To clear them (eg. to clear all Mod Wheel data):

1. Select the controller per step 3 above
2. Use "Region/Select" to select the entire song.
3. MAKE SURE THAT THE HIGHLIGHTING IS PINK, NOT BLUE. When it's pink, you're only working on the selected MIDI data, not the notes and other stuff. Hit "Delete" on your keyboard, and all data for the selected MIDI controller will be deleted.
4. Lather, rinse, repeat for each MIDI cc you don't want.

Music is to the soul like water is to green growing things.

I was banging my head against the wall on a volume issue on a song I recorded with Composer. For some reason the volume went down (by about 30%) on the 7th measure and stayed at that level til the end of the song. After finding your reply (below) I was able to solve the problem with a MIDI setting. There was an asterisk by "Expression" and this quite clearly had an effect on my volume. How it got into my work, I don't know, but your clear and easy instruction was very helpful...
