I have been thinking about transfering the concept of a
cursor from text editing to MIDI editing.
Since this not specific to any existing sequencer I like
to present my concept here, in hope of feedback and
maybe some project picking it up.
The red, turned H is the cursor. The row (note) it's on
is always marked/highlighted.
The cursor can be moved with cursor keys or placed by
left clicking (just like a text cursor).
Selection of events happens by rubberbanding per mouse
or by using shift + cursor keys.
New notes can be inserted at the cursor location
by just hitting enter, using a default value or the
grid resolution for the length when nothing was
selected. Or filling the selected area with the new
note (empyt space is treated like whitespace in a
Selected events can be moved with the cursor keys
by holding down Ctrl.
There could be auto-selection of the closest event
when nothing else was selected.
