Scaling MIDI Velocities is as old as MIDI itself. From the very first drum machines to the most modern software sequencers, manipulating velocity levels allows us to inject dynamics into the music we create.
Logic Pro X has no shortage of methods to edit velocity values. In this free video, I will focus on two ways to scale multiple velocities using the new region automation mode in the Piano Roll Editor.
The traditional way is to scale linearly to create crescendos (making notes louder over time) or decrescendos (making notes quieter over time.). But what about if you merely want to scale the current velocity levels to either raise or lower them all together, while still maintaining the relative differences between the note events?
Learn both ways of scaling velocities (linear, and relative) using region automation in this video.
