Note/score/midi-file editing/midi-editor question
I have what I feel is a rather stupid question that will only too much display my limited ability to use any musical instrument and lack of understanding of same. But I dreamt for a long time about getting a keyboard to play but only relatively recently got the financial opportunity to buy...
So now , I got many ideas about wanting to do something but find myself with two major problems. One of them is understanding the softwares enough to do creative settings of my own to produce the sounds that I want and the other being that when I try to play then I am not good enough at playing so that I often have to retry a passage or something or I do not hit the keys with appropriate time intervals to to hit the note at the beat every time.
The first problem knowing the software (not a question here) then apart from using presets then I guess that only time and studying will help since this is an extremely wast area and it is impossible to express or translate to other other than by the sounds like this or that , but maybe also a little like that other and then how do I do that. And one either needs to learn or have a sound engineer to ask all the time !
However as for the other problem , the question here , which by the way is regarding the midi notes and their representation of my keyboard play tries, then I hope that there is some program with better and more intuitive interface than what I have seen and tried previously.
So question :
Can someone, anyone , please recommend me a very easy to use program that will allow me to do quantization of the midi notes from a midi file and then delete one or more notes, or part of 'score' and then program will contract space or leave be as I desire and something that can also easily alter pitch of midi (transpose notes ?) and play speed *of midi file* and/or save to file including altered play speed and maybe even allow wok on 'beat' of file ?
To me it all sounds as ought to have been a rather trivial matter but every single time I try one of them 'piano roll' things in a DAW or something then I don't think that it is that easy. I would also really like to do the same with chord representation in midi (polyphonic midi if possible)(I don't even know if that is possible or not in one file or if it requires more files playing at same time) , and something that could very easily do chord transposing (don't know if it is the right word) , as I have discovered that transposing of midi/notes is far from simple if one wants to do it oneself and (apparently requires knowledge of something called 'circle of fifths' and what not)...
(I do know that e.g. my N.I. S61 allows for quantization by click of a button but that does not cover my need !)
I guess that most here will consider me a bit dense and rather ignorant but I do not know very much about neither music notation nor about midi note or midi chord representation and hence I would really like to get my hands on some very intuitive and very easy to use software that can do all the described above !
Sorry about the lack of tags , apparently there is no 'midi' tag or anything related that I thought appropriate !
