It would be nice to as well be able to determine what the current play duration property of a note is (and to easily change it in the same place) [with] a more comprehensive Note Property Inspector.

When a MIDI file is read in, Encore basically takes the notes from each track (a track is really just an "administrative container" for notes and related events) and directs them to an arbitrary staff. (I am ignoring for the moment the splitting of a track by pitch.) Once that has happened, the "track" origin of a note is lost.

I'm not sure I know what you mean. Do you mean that in recording an incoming MIDI stream, or reading a MIDI file, Encore does not keep track of (that is, record as a property of the stored notes) the MIDI channel of the note messages/events?
I believe that is so. We see no evidence of a MIDI channel being stored as a property of a note, regardless of how it arrived.and goes entirely by the track/staff MIDI channel.
Until Encore emits a MIDI stream in real-time play, or emits a MIDI file, there are no MIDI channels involved.
The MIDI channel for a note in a MIDI file, or a note in a MIDI stream for real-time play, is of course based on the staff (and If we have chosen to make separate channel assignments for voices, on the the voice).
There is no concept of "track" in a MIDI stream.
I'm sure that's probably what you meant, but I just wanted to paint out the details for whatever value that might have.
q wrote:I don't know what gave me the impression that Encore used the terms track and staff interchangably. Except in relation to MIDI files, I only see one mention of the term track in the User Manual:
Page 166 /224 (v 2009.3.1)
To the right of the staff number is a field in the Staff Sheet that represents the play status for each track. By default, each track will be â€œplay enabledâ€ and represented with a solid triangle. To â€œmuteâ€ a track, click directly on the triangle. This turns the center of the triangle white and all MIDI playback for that track will cease.

Actually, I just did. (I'm trying to move things along here, owing to the imminence of our departure for vacation.)
Hope that is no problem.
