Introduction to MIDI Editing

This chapter provides an overview of where you can best edit different types of MIDI events in Logic Pro. Logic Pro offers several MIDI event editors:  the Score, Piano Roll, and Hyper Editors, and the Event List and Transform window. Each editor provides a different view of MIDI events and offers unique editing functions. These differences make particular MIDI editing tasks easier, and you will often switch between multiple editors to get a part just right.

Important: You cannot perform any event editing operations—in the Arrange area or the editors—unless the MIDI data resides in a MIDI region that exists in the Arrange area.
