Default Re-writing mod wheel/MIDI automation

Is there a way to completely overwrite midi automation so I don't get these crude jumps when I do a second pass at MOD wheel automation (for example?)

You can use the selector tool to highlight the area in the automation lane you want to overwrite, then hit backspace, and it will erase it, then write in a new one. Also, if you turn off MIDI merge, then new MIDI data will overwrite rather than add. That may be what's happening here.

Ah, MIDI merge makes sense.. I understand I can delete and re-write, but I wanted an overwrite solution. I see how it defeats the purpose of MIDI merge though.

Not much good though as you'll lose all your midi notes as soon as you take midi merge off....

Open another MIDI track (track two) with the same output target.

Make a selection of the problem area on the first MIDI track mod wheel data.

Erase the selection area on track one.

Enter record on track two and just perform the mod wheel (with MIDI merge OFF) . And do it until you get a pass you love.

You can stop now if you don't mind the two tracks, or copy the good mod wheel data from track two and paste it into track one. Then, and only then, erase track two.
