Strike two.

This doesn't drop midi events outside the range; it's just for
"drawing" new segments into the tracklist...new segments will have the
clef/range specified.

So I'm back to my original question: How to (without copying & pasting
a bunch of notes every time I want to record a track) split tracks.

Oh, And I was hoping to avoid using the "split segment on pitch"
editing tool...I want to capture to separate tracks.
