Midi Editor: Change default octave display to C3
Octave centered in new midi editor window is C3 instead of C1

When opening a new editor, Reaper focuses C1 as the octave in the middle. This is way too low, the lower octaves cannot be reached by most acoustic instruments.

Requesting:

This way default has C3 (middle C default by Yamaha/Reaper settings) in focus. The editor has a larger (usable range), and saves having to constantly scroll up when inserting/editing midi data for the majority of acoustic instruments.

Additional request based on this thread.

Can we have the midi editor please remember last used vertical position. This way if someone mainly uses lower midi note numbers this will not be a disadvantage to them.

Woohoo! Seems like this is happening in Reaper 4.0!

It wasn't even in the changelog, but new MIDI items now open at C3 over here!

Same here... deserves a change to "coming soon"? or "already implemented"? or "we love surprises"? :p

Still... does it open with C3 in the middle of the ME
window, or does it at the top as it does here? I'd prefer
middle of the window height.

Slightly above the middle over here. Indeed, it should be dead center.

Awesome! It's similar to Sonar's layout.


We love surprises suits best. :D

As far as I can tell ..
Both these are now happening. This issue could be closed?

1) Can we have the midi editor please remember last used vertical position.

2) New MIDI items now open at C3.

Vertical position isn't remembered when a new editor is created, but it still reverts to C3 which is good. :)
