Ardour MIDI Editing 3
2007-05-29 1 Comment
Another MIDI region as underlay. Making use of colour perspective: blue steps into the background. For the same reason my notes are orangish, to come to the front (and be warm, inviting). The short grooves mark grid steps and are meant to look distinct from notes in a row.
Dragging from empty space does rubber band selection. If the selection rectangle doesn’t fully enclose any note, the starting row is filled with a note (indicated by an outline while dragging). In the very odd case of someone wanting a note that completely overlaps another note on the same row, it can still be done by creating a shorter note and then extending it, or creating the note on another row and moving it.
Rubber banding selecting all touched (not necessarily encased) notes could be had with a modifier key.
The encased note is selected. I will likely have to create more plain graphics, but for now I’m having a bit of fun showing what could be done 😉
Initially I thought of showing the 3 target areas on mouse-over plus highlighting the active one. But sectioned highlighting does both jobs.
2 variations on indicating whether a note is exactly on a grid position or not (bottom note is not).
