This way, compatible controllers such as the ROLI seaboard can output their full potential. Want to create a more rhythmic solo, or lower harmonies with sustain? MPE makes it easy.
MIDI Velocity Dynamics Use velocity dynamics as a real-time effect for MIDI tracks to adjust velocity sensitivity for all the notes used. Adjust the transmitted velocity values from the connected controller by compressing or expanding the velocity data of the selected MIDI event.
The MIDI editor integrates various applications, views, ranges, and tools. The MIDI parameter editing tool can be accessed here at all times: Selected events (e.g. velocity or pitch bend) can be moved, stretched or compressed and scaled in relation to each other in various ways. MIDI quantization is also possible without any additional steps.
Music notation From initial idea to finished score: Music notation in Samplitude Pro X5 displays MIDI data as notes in realtime. Your edits are transferred directly to the MIDI editor. Notations can be edited using the parameters pitch, velocity and length. When you're finished, you can publish the data as sheet music. If you import a MIDI file with lyric markers, the text is displayed in the score.
Drum Editor This alternative to the classic piano roll view has been specially designed for programming drums. Transfer note settings to other channel strips and quantize individual elements or assign them a new output channel if necessary. The editor can be displayed in Matrix mode with conventional parameters or in cell mode. This way, quantization for note length and snapping to grid can be implemented more easily.
