Default "correct overlapping notes" does the exact opposite of what I want. Any tips?

There have been some issues in the past, which involve 'overlapping notes', i.e. cases where the note-off event for a specific note comes *after* the note-on event of a subsequent note with the exact same note number. There currently is an option "Automatically correct overlapping notes" that is supposed to address these issues (see e.g. here and here).

However, it does the exact opposite of what I want. There are two ways to correct this: one is to shorten the overlapping notes so they do not overlap anymore; the other is to join all overlapping notes into a single, continuous note. REAPER currently does the former, while I want the latter (for something I'm working on currently, at least).

Is there perhaps any way to achieve this easily, that is, not requiring me to join such groups of overlapping notes manually (as that would be *very* tedious)? Preferably, I want to transform the MIDI destructively.

'Join notes' doesn't work for you ?
Shortcut 'j' is default

Thanks for the suggestion. I thought of that too, but I would still have to select groups of overlapping notes individually. I can't do this for e.g. all middle C's at once, or they'd become a single long note - while I want to join only strings of overlapping notes into single notes. So the Join function is certainly quite useful for manually 'cleaning up' a bit faster, but it still is pretty tedious.

Perhaps I should just try to create a little JS thingie or so myself. I was just hoping there is a quicker way I haven't thought of yet. I think I should try to play the sequence through some arpeggiator plug-in and play with its settings, if I'm lucky, that might just work well enough.

Heh heh, while you're at it maybe you could come up with a way to eliminate duplicate adjacent midi events.

I wonder if that can be done.

Link removed - new version in a later post.

Is it worth merging only a specific channel?

And how would you define adjacent?

Hi DarkStar, this is for the overlapping notes right?

Was your "And how would you define adjacent?" addressed to me?

If so:

Going from left to right, if a CC event that follows a preceding event has the same value as the preceding event then it should be deleted.

Do you think it's possible to put something together for eliminating the same CCs?
