Randomizing velocity of midi notes

Recommended Posts

If I want to randomize velocities for a track with chords, and sometimes drums, I like Cakewalk's Velocity MFX. It doesn't come with any useful presets but you can make your own pretty easily. Adjust the sliders, and this will take some trial and error before it becomes intuitive, to where you want then type in a name and then click the Save icon. The preset shown is one I made for more extreme variations in velocity for piano tracks I put together using the PRV. I have multiple presets for Piano (though they can be used with any MIDI instrument) with varying degrees of randomization. If I have a long piano track with multiple clips I will use different presets on different clips, increasing the 'humanizing' effect.

Here is a preset with less extreme velocity changes for comparison.

Look in the FX browser in the MIDI tab, the plug-in list for FX Racks on MIDI tracks or the MIDI tab in the Inspector for instrument tracks.

Where are my Midi effects?

 

Here's how I do it.

Right-Click the CLIP and select either Insert Effect, which will put MIDI FX in the clip's FX Rack and will act non-destructively, or click Process Effect which will open the tool and destructively write the changes you make to the MIDI data.
