Learn how to tame your MIDI performances with Velocity Processor in Logic Pro

Not all velocity values are played equal – some may be more drastic than others. Here’s a tool that can reduce the velocity range, should it be desired

Velocity is a great MIDI feature that can add expression to a performance. But if a performed part has a few velocity errors, you might have to open the MIDI region and manually edit the notes.
