Play MIDI note/chord on click and/or drag?

(Brylie) #1

When working on the piano roll, I would like to be able to preview a note or chord by clicking it. Also, when dragging a note on the piano roll, it would be nice to hear the note before choosing where to ‘drop’ it. This would be like directly manipulating the music, as I could both see and hear the notes. Is there a setting or shortcut that I am overlooking?

How can I preview notes/chords when clicking and/or dragging?

Edit>Preferences>MIDI>Audition:

Sound MIDI notes as they are selected in the editor must be activated.

(Be careful to select few notes simultaneously - it can make overload. Look the feature request:
