How can I copy and paste velocity ?

Hi,

Is there a way to copy the velocity data of several midi notes (notes XXX) and paste it on other existing notes (notes YYY)?

So the note pitch of YYY remains unchanged but its velocity is replaced by the velocity of XXX?

Thanks for your help.

I’ve wanted to do this many, many times.
Still haven’t found a way though…

Anyone???
Is this possible?

You can do it in the logical editor

How? I’d like to know! :slight_smile:

I’ll try to post a gif tonight … but I’m slammed. Will try to remember to get round toit… hell for all I know it works for other stuff but not velocity… but normally I just copy/paste rows in that view.

Believe it or not, this is done via Groove Quantize :wink:
Select your source Part, and create the Groove (Edit Menu>Advanced Quantize).
On the Destination Part, open the Quantize dialog for the Groove that you have just created, and set Position, Length, and Non-Q to zero, but Velocity to 100%.

And I am incorrect … I forgot you can cell select columns in the List editor.

Indeed! Nice. Groove Quantize is also useful to create grids which would be otherwise unavailable. The one thing I haven’t used it for is groove quantizing. :sunglasses:

Ahh, Nice!

Thanks a lot for your help vic_france, it works great !

I might add that it can be helpful to set the original track values in the logical editor if possible (and save a preset of your logical editor settings while you are at it). Then follow the groove quantize routine above. It’s nice to have presets available for the logical editor to do things that you might repeat in other projects. An example would be velocity changes to accent a hihat in a groove to improve the feel. I saw this done in a tutorial and appreciated the potential. JMHO.
