I have a problem with programming midi drums. I have to humanize drums, so I need to randomize velocity a littli bit. Is there any function wich will do it automatically?

If your drum notes are quantized, try firing humanize a few times and then fire quantize to put the notes back where they were.

Or maybe just play around with the settings in the quantize toolbar like below where certain settings only seem to affect certain velocities.

I'd also try the humanize function which alters both the timing and the velocity. To get the original timing back you can use the Restore Timing command. (There's also a Restore Velocity command)

Thank you, that's great. Another question, can I set up range of velocity and timing humanize?

I don't think so. S1 uses a built-in logic for humanizing.

Ah, ... perfect. I'd completely fogotten about that function.

I was contemplating suggesting using groove quantize to modify velocity in various ways but I didn't want to also affect the note timing and (apparently) the sliders don't really stop that. "Restore Timing" solves that problem.

Thanks Sun.

Perfect I'll do macro "humanize, restore timing" and could use it with one key. Very quick. I love s1 Thank you again!

There is another issue. I fire humanize and then restore timing, everything is ok. But macro with the same commands effects all notes, not just selected. How can I tell macro to effect only selected notes?
