activate multiple items in Midi editor for editing
allow that more than one item in Midi editor can be edited at the same time

from this thread:


Since some versions of Reaper we have the "open all items in one Midi editor" function, which is cool.

At the current state one Midi item at a time is active and editable and the others are kept as secondary (non-editable).

Now what would I do if I wanted to edit multiple Midi items at once ?

For example drum editing, I have a verse part and the chorus part as seperate Midi items open in the same Midi editor and I want to alter the velocity on selected notes on both of them at the same time the same amount. Unless I miss something, at the moment I can't do this. The only option would be glueing the two parts before editing but then I'd lose the option to copy and trim them seperately.

So how about:
Clicking on a note in Midi editor activates a Midi item for editing (current state) and ctrl+clicking on a note in a secondary item activates additional items without making the others inactive (question would be how to deactivate then), or make it possible to activate more than one part via the Midi editor "Filter".

That shure would be nice to see content of other items within the MIDI
editor, and edit them at the same time. Like a blown up in-line editing.

Thanks for the mockup. Exactly what I'm talking about.
