Looking at the screenshot it looks like youki didn't create any MIDI tracks and hence didn't delete any MIDI regions. I've just tried choosing Session -> Cleanup -> Cleanup unused sources under 8319 but with just one MIDI track and a few deleted (from a track) MIDI regions and I get the same error but SHOULD this same option also delete all unused MIDI regions too or should we have that as a separate option under the Cleanup menu instead? Additionally, the "Are you sure you want to cleanup?" confirmation notification window currently makes no mention of MIDI regions, only unused audio files.

Danboid, unused region removal is being implemented as part of 0003480

Thanks Lincoln- not tried it just yet but it'd be nice to see your patch upstreamed or get some feedback on why it hasn't been integrated already. Does your patch clean up MIDI sources too?

cleanup is not working in a3 at present. lincoln's patch doesn't address this.

this should now be working (or at least ready for testing) post rev 9015

Cleanup unused sources works with both audio and MIDI for me under 9027 although 'Delete Unused' from the region list context menu doesn't work for MIDI regions.
