Double note heads

Post by bluearrows » Fri Oct 30, 2015 9:25 am

Hello everyone,

I have imported a midi file and I have a lot of double note heads.Does anyone have a quick solution to deleting them rather than going through and individually erasing the ones I don't want.

Cheers

The cause may be that the midi file used 2 midi channels (or the keyboard used for input) for every note, duplicating everything. Or 2 tracks with the same data and the sale midi channel, or a midi keyboard that originally sent its data on 2 midi channels.

If you have access to the sequencer, use a single midi channel and export again.

If not, a solution would be to use the plug-in JW Staff Polyphony (to be installed).
You can delete all unisons in a selected region in one go, leaving you with single notes.
