Chapter 15.  Cleaning Up Your MIDI Act  > Using Logical MIDI Processes

Using Logical MIDI Processes

A logical process is any function that performs some kind of numerical evaluation of MIDI data and then makes changes according to what it finds. Quantize and Groove Quantize are two special types of logical processes, but SONAR has several more. Let's explore a few of them.

Scaling Velocity

MIDI velocity is a measure of how hard you struck the controller keyboard when you first played the note. Most synthesizers map velocity to the intensity of a note, and some map it also to timbre, making notes brighter at higher velocities. SONAR lets you scale the velocities of a selection from low to high, creating a crescendo, or from high to low, creating a decrescendo.
