What it does
This dialog box allows you to limit the
values of the
to within a specified range of values.
of ____ • Maximum of ____. In these text boxes, enter the minimum
and maximum values permissible for the specified MIDI data type within
the selected region. Any existing data values below the minimum value
you specify will be boosted to that minimum value; any existing values
above the maximum value will be clipped down to that maximum value.
The numbers you enter in the maximum and minimum
boxes pertain to the controller you’ve specified (on a scale from 0 to
127). For example—although it doesn’t make much musical sense—you could
limit the patch numbers in the selected region to within a certain range.
More practically, you could limit the amount of monophonic
within a selected region to a certain maximum value—so that you’ll never
hear more than a certain amount of vibrato on any note, for example.
• Cancel. Click OK to confirm, or Cancel to discard, the MIDI data
changes you’ve specified. You return to the MIDI tool window
(or the score).
