FR: Multiple Piano Key Rows in MIDI Editor (optional)
Discuss: http://forum.cockos.com/showthread.p...250#post809250

Is there a request for this sort of thing in the Tracker?

The idea:
Basically, multiple, unlimited Piano Key Rows.

One on top of the other, exactly like multiple CC lanes.

1.) 2 Rows should suffice.
2.)
3 Rows could speed along compositions using many octaves.
3.) 4+ Rows would probably defeat the purpose unless you have
two video monitors stacked on top of one another (but awesome if you do!)

Useful because:
1.) Sometimes it's difficult to see both keyswitch toggle notes for a patch and the normal instrument range notes.
There is often a large gap of unused/unmapped notes between the keyswitch toggle notes and the instrument range notes.
2.) Multiple Rows would allow users to see both normal instrument range notes & keyswitch toggle notes
at the same time & more clearly.

3.)
Example using 6 Piano Key Rows:
Row 1. Glockenspiel ("keyswitch" note row) <-- Top row
Row 2. Glockenspiel ("instrument range" note row)


Row 3. Trumpet ("keyswitch" note row)
Row 4. Trumpet ("instrument range" note row)


Row 5. Cellos ("keyswitch" note row)
Row 6. Cellos ("instrument range" note row) <-- Bottom row




Options > Preferences:
Preferences > Media > MIDI > Default octave per-Piano Key Row:
1.) Like this (user defines C1, C2,... C8 within brackets):
Row 1 Center octave: [C7] <--- This would be for the top row.
Row 2 Center octave: [C6]
Row 3 Center octave: (C5]
Row 4 Center octave: [C4]
Row 5 Center octave: [C3]
Row 6 Center octave: [C2]
Row 7 Center octave: [C1] <--- This would be for the bottom row.
** Surely 7 is more than enough!

New requested MIDI Editor Mouse Modifers:
1.) Freely resize each Row like CC Lanes.
Possibly resize each one like the Inline MIDI Editor?
2.) Mouse modifier to reset each Piano Key Row to the above mentioned
default per-roll octave center (C3, C4, C5, etc.)

3.) Reset current Piano Key Row to default center zoom

4.) Optional pop-up window requesting user to define the center octave for each newly-created Piano Key Row.
If pop-up window is disabled (in Preferences) each newly created row would
use the above settings "Preferences > Media > MIDI > Default octave per-Piano Key Row:"


New requested Actions associated with this FR:
1.) "Reset top & bottom Piano Key Rows to their respective default zoom" (When 2 Rows are visible)
2.) "Reset top Piano Key Row to default zoom" (When 2 or more Rows are visible)
3.) "Reset bottom Piano Key Row to default zoom" (When 2 or more Rows are visible)

4.) "Set focus to top Piano Key Row" (for note/CC/etc. entry)
5.) "Set focus to bottom Piano Key Row" (for note/CC/etc. entry)
6.) "Cycle focus down Piano Key Row" (for note/CC/etc. entry)
7.) "Cycle focus up Piano Key Row" (for note/CC/etc. entry)

8.) Close all but top Row
9.) Close all but bottom Row
10.) Close current top Row
11.) Close current bottom Row
