How to clean delete

Post by diamondsword008 » Mon Sep 28, 2020 12:41 am

I'm pretty new to sunvox. It's pretty cool so far, but there's this thing that's really annoying. I'm trying to delete something in the pattern editor, and when i press DELETE, it moves all the notes underneath up. is there a way to just do a clean delete, or am i just going to have to suffer?

change your edit step size to 0. it's the number in the upper-right corner. every time you delete an event, the cursor skips down by this number

My usual method is to highlight the area to be deleted and use cut to remove it.

On my phone, I always have the toolbar open. This way it is quick* to highlight with one thumb and tap cut with the other.

*after a little practice to train the muscle memory.

Another method I use regularly is to tap INS straight after DEL.

This is good for single entries, cut is better for deleting blocks at a time.

Seems you use it on Mac, where DELETE button as actually BACKSPACE :)
Try Fn+DEL
