In a recent tutorial you learned how to make a beat in BTV Solo. But to shape your beats to your flavor it’s necessary to know how to delete notes in BTV Solo. In this tutorial you’re going to learn three ways to do this.

1. Undo

The first way may be obvious. Hit the “Undo” button to delete the notes you just recorded. Like in many other programs you can also use the short cut “Command”+”Z” on a Mac or “Control”+”Z” on a PC.

Click the delete button. Now you are asked if you are “sure you want to delete the track data?” You can choose between “All”, “Control” and “Notes”.

“All” deletes notes and control data of the selected track.

“Control” deletes the control data (Pitch and Mod) and leaves the notes.

“Notes” deletes the notes and leaves the control data.
