randomizing midi notes (velocities)

how do you randomize midi velocities ?
like say…drums/bass

see pic below - thx

MIDI menu -> Logical Presets -> Standard Set 1 -> Random Velocity (60 to 100)

Or

From the inspector under MIDI Modifiers. Then you can Freeze MIDI Modifiers if you want.

You can also use the Logical Editor and modify this preset so it works relative to the current Velocity - e.g. randomly adding -X to +Y to the current velocity. Doing it this way allows you to add some variation while maintaining any existing Velocity accents. Or even create a second preset to accent notes in specific beat positions, bind them together in a Macro to do it all at once to convert notes at a constant velocity into something more musical.

for some reason , MIDI -> logical presets doesn’t show up :neutral_face:

Well, that’s not right. Can you post a screen grab of the MIDI Menu?

If you can’t see the logical presets maybe you need to watch this video:

You could also use midi modifiers, you’ll find them in the inspector.

hi guys

i posted a very similar question and found this thread, nice- however

i cant find this midi modifiers window where is it?

im in 10.5 - it’s not in the inspector/ thnx

It might be “not visible” by default. Right-click over your inspector view (like where midi inserts are) and check “midi modifiers” if it ain’t already
