Ok, unless I’m REALLY missing something here’s what I tried:
The MIDI Modifier is good for a single track only. It certainly works as described by Centralmusic but is really a non-starter when you have more than a handful of tracks to adjust.
The Quantize Setup function certainly does things on a Macro level but fundamentally changes the notes off the grid. When cutting/pasting sections or general editing after this has been applied then the chances of things being missed/left-in accidentally/just placed slightly wrongly increases significantly.
The Logic editor - as above with Quantise Setup.
What I’m after, and I’m pretty sure it doesn’t yet exist in Cubase, is a button on the main Arrange page saying Human Playback. It will not alter the actual positions on the grid of the MIDI information but has the flexibility like the MIDI Modifiers/Quantise Setup to change the interpretation. There could even be Presets saying Very Tight, Loose, Slightly Swung along with the other possibilities in more exact numbers.
It could then even have the option of adjusting the MIDI information so that the desired performance is then captured by truly altering the MIDI notes if so desired. It would also have nothing to do with the Quantise functions so that they can still be manipulated as normal.
I think there was a Roland/Yamaha sequencer in the 90’s that did just that.
It seems to me that we are very close to being able to do this but at the same time it isn’t there in an easily accessible way without making changes to the actual notes and the consequences of it.
Anyone else not think this would be a popular feature?
