You are here: Reference > Dialog Boxes > R > Randomize - Key Velocities

Randomize Key Velocities dialog box

How to get there

  1. Choose Window > Advanced Tools. Click the MIDI tool  image\MIDI_Tool.gif. The MIDI tool menu appears.
  2. Select a region of measures. 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. Choose MIDI tool > Key Velocities.
  4. Choose MIDI tool > Randomize.

What it does

In this dialog box, you can direct Finale to alter the velocity for all selected notes at random. This can be a useful option if you want to give your playback a more imperfect, "human" feeling. (The Randomize command isn’t available if you’ve selected Continuous Data from the MIDI tool menu.)

Tip. Enter values between 5-20 to achieve a more "human" feel.
