Compressing MIDI Velocities in Cakewalk SONAR

Written by Scott R. Garrigus - 2005, Scott R. Garrigus. All Rights Reserved.
If you find that your MIDI performances aren't quite as perfect as you'd like them to be, and the velocities of your notes are sometimes too soft or too loud, you can compress them using Cakewalk's Interpolate or Find/Change feature. Here's how:

1) Select your MIDI data.
2) If you're using SONAR 8.5 or earlier, choose Edit > Interpolate. If you're using SONAR X1 or later, choose Process > Find/Change. This opens the Event Filter - Search dialog box.
3) Click the None button located near the bottom of the dialog box.
4) Put a check mark next to Note (the first parameter listed near the top of the dialog box).
5) Click OK to open the Event Filter - Replace dialog box.
6) To the right of the Note parameter, enter the range of velocity values you would like to use in the Velocity Min (for the lowest velocity in the range) and Max (for the highest velocity in the range) parameters.
7) Click OK.

SONAR will then compress your velocity values to the range that you specified in the Velocity Min and Max parameters.
