Chapter 17. Editing MIDI > Editing MIDI Velocity

Editing MIDI Velocity

MIDI supports a wide variety of performance parameters. In addition to pitch and note duration, MIDI can transmit information like breath control for wind instruments; aftertouch, which simulates how much pressure is applied to a key after it’s struck; and whether a keyboard’s sustain pedal is pressed.

Another common MIDI parameter is note velocity. Although velocity can be used to modulate a wide range of parameters in a synthesizer, it’s most often used as a volume control for individual notes. Editing velocity is a good example of how MIDI parameters other than pitch and duration work in Pro Tools.
