Piano roll areas guide

Question

Hello fellow Cakewalk users,

Just like to ask some advice pls as I am about to use the Piano roll in a regular basis from now on for my sound production.

Basically,  just like to find out which areas will you put the bass notes, chords, and melody notes (arp patterns). In short, what areas will be the low, mid and octave areas.

Hope that makes sense as I don't have any clue how many keys there are supposedly in a standard piano.

Many thanks.

Hi, I don’t have exact areas to tell you but generally the bottom of the piano roll diagram is where bass would be and up higher you would do chords and melodies. Of course the choice of octave areas is up to ones taste, like some bass is played very low others up higher. Just experiment to see where you want things.

You're welcome.
I googled (binged!) "ranges of musical instruments" and got several charts like that.
