Default Moving notes between staves

Many midi files have up to 16 staffs. Say, you want to take measure 4-12 on a trombone staff and move them to emasures 4-12 on a sax staff, HOW DO YOU DO THAT without simply moving them note by note.

Default Re: Moving notes between staves


With the Notes and Rests tab clicked (to make sure you're copy/pasting notes and not just a MIDI graph):

1. You can use Region Select to select the measures you want to copy.
2. Then Edit/Copy (or "Ctl + C") to copy the selection to your computer clipboard.
3. Now select the Region you want to paste those notes into.
4. Edit/Paste (or "Ctl+V") to paste the notes in.

You can read about selecting a Region by using Help/Users Guide, and then the Index to look up "region" and then double-click the "selecting" subtopic. You can also take a look at the free Tutorial Videos at

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