Move CC Data with Notes!

First up, thanks for all the great new features, speed and dedication you guys put in! I'm so relieved I made the move.

Right now though I realize how much energy you'd save if CC data moved with notes. I think it's a simple case of oversight: CC data recorded in performances are always related to what you play (think audio). Sometimes it's the sustain, sweeps - now CC#2, breath control: I recorded an idea out of tempo using chorder and a wind controller, adjusted it with the (blindin') new way to move the grid to notes. But as CC data doesn't follow it all gets messed up.

Please implement CC's  moving with notes! - You'd always want them to. Anyone think differently please comment.

I'd implement it straight up without the option of the present behavior.

Thanks guys!

Here's a specific command to implement it: "Automation: Convert Track based to Event based". As this is easier to understand I'll post it properly formulated.

In the meantime try this workaround: There's track based and event based automation. Make sure "Automatically add envelopes for touched parameters" is checked in Preferences/Advanced/ Automation. Open the Edit window (⌘ 2). Move the fader of the parameter so it's active in the top left window. Now drag the"Hand" - not to the Track but to the Edit window. This way the parameter is added to the list below the notes/ audio. Cut/ paste the automation from the track to the event.

I am curious: has this feature been added yet? I don’t think it has but it sure would be nice. If it hasn’t, are there any plans for it to be added soon? I am working on an album of solo piano music (with MIDI and piano sample libraries) and the fact that selecting MIDI notes does not include CC data is a real deal killer for using Studio One, as much as I like it as a DAW overall. I use the sustain pedal a lot (CC 64) and I need that data to move with my notes.

Reaper does this by default, and in Logic, you just have to change a setting. If anyone is interested, this is what you do in Logic: in the Piano Roll Editor, choose Functions > Include Non-Note MIDI Events.

Perhaps in Studio One this could be achieved by adding the range tool to the music editor. Or simply by making this a selectable option as it is in Logic. But it really is a necessary feature and it is quite common in other DAWs.
