Add - Key Velocities dialog box

How to get there

  1. Choose Window > Advanced Tools. Click the MIDI tool  image\MIDI_Tool.gif.
  2. Choose MIDI tool > Key Velocities. If you’re in the MIDI tool split-window, select the region you want to affect by dragging through the "graph" display area or by selecting the handles of individual notes whose MIDI data you want to edit.
  3. Select some measures. (If you’re editing a one-staff region, double-click to enter the MIDI tool split-window.)
  4. Choose MIDI tool > Add.

What it does

The Add dialog box’s contents change to reflect your MIDI data type selection (key velocities). Its function is to add a fixed amount to (or subtract a fixed amount from) the key velocity of every note in the selected region. Because it adds an absolute amount to every selected note, the Add command preserves the relative proportions of the existing values.

For example, you can specify that each note in a selected region should be played back with slightly more volume by adding, for example, 20 MIDI velocity units. (MIDI velocity is measured on a scale from zero, which is silent, to 127, which is very loud.)
