I was wondering, trying to shorten a Chord via the Knife-Tool. I can only cut one Note? Otherwise i need to cut the Clip, wich cut all inside too.

I was trying ALT, SHIFT, and CTRL...but this not working.

There is no other way? Of course, i think we need two [STRG]+Click


ctrl-e works in the piano roll to split all notes at a specific time.

1) Enter multiple notes

2) Select the time at which you want to cut

alt text

Not quite as cool as drawing arbitrary lines with the knife tool, but, maybe helpful.

3) Press ctrl-e

alt text

  • All the notes at that time are split into two, at that time.

Hope that helps.

This not works at all... strg(=ctrl) + e alt + e shift + e

In the Shortcutlist is ctrl + e named SPLIT but i see no reaction, wherever i try this (samples, midiclips)

I updated my answer with screenshots. It works for me, maybe we're talking about different things?

Select all the notes (lasso them with pointer tool, or select one by one while holding Ctrl), then grab the right border of one of them and make it shorter. Other notes should follow.

This not what i want to do...selecting and grab ends or starts is known. I need to cut, for working creative with interaction of other elements...and so on.

Not at computer so can't check but what about highlighting the section of the notes you want to split off with the time tool and then ctrl + e?
