I am recording my audio with -18dB as my 0dB. The problem is now when I am converting drum hits to audio, the velocity becomes too low. I would like to raise all the velocity of these (drum) MIDI tracks so that the peaks are at 127 (i.e.maxed). What I am trying to do is like using “Normalize” on audio tracks, but on MIDI.
How do I do this?
Several ways of doing this.
Select all the midi notes and then place the cursor on one of the velocity bars at the bottom so it turns into 2 arrows (up and down above each other) You can then drag all velocities up and down at once.
Use the Logical editor to raise velocity however you like.
Not a real solution but record a bit more hot. In a modern DAW there is really no benefit from keeping the signal so low. Personally when recording i always keep the input channel untouched at 0 and then use the preamp knob on my interface to adjust to just below clipping.
