Can any of our experienced Garritan/Sonar users help me with applying random velocity to a selection?
I have tried using Sonar's 'VaryVel' CAL Routine to apply random velocity to a selection of a drum track. This seemed to be what I was looking for; ie. enter the lower value (say 80) then enter the higher value (say 90) then the script varies the velocity for the selection randomly between these values. I get all sorts of weird results and nothing approaching the lower and upper values I typed in! It seems I must have missed something somewhere.
I also tried Sonar's FX Velocity tool (Process - MIDI Fx - Cakewalk Fx - Velocity) to apply random velocity to the selction without success. I have tried using the preset but I don't understand the 'Amount' and 'Tendency' settings and the manual doesn't really help much.
I understand entirely that velocity settings alone do not make a good drum track. However, apart from going to each event individually and dragging the velocity tails throughout the entire groove, I do need such a tool.
As always, I'd be grateful for any help with this.
