How do I humanize without quantizing

Hi -

Could anyone help, please?..

I’m trying to humanize some MIDI by introducing some random variance in the position, but without quantizing as some of the music is not to a grid.

I have RTFM, and I have investigated the Logical Editor, and with filter set to Type = Note, and the Transform set to Position / Set relative random values between / -20 / 20.

I was expecting it to move the selected notes randomly +/- 20 PPQs. My project is set to 480 PPQ.

But the notes are jumping huge distances randomly and I can’t work out what it’s doing. Tried turning off snap to gird in case it was that, but didn’t make any difference.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Graham

Nuendo + NEK 6.0.7 (same functionality for Logical Editor as Cubase 7 I understand).

I figured out what the issue was - and I don’t think this is in the manual…

The track time base must be set to Musical, not Linear. Only then will the parameters be interpreted by the Logical Editor as PPQs.

I have no idea what the parameters represent when in Linear time base but the position transformations are huge in comparison to the PPQs.

Thanks,

Graham
