Hi

Would just like to ask if there is any way to render a professional Piano recording without having to spend countless hours sometimes days over editing. I understand compression attenuates for the dynamics and quantization for on the beat timing, however there doesn't seem to be a feature that facilitates for the velocity of notes.

I've just spent three days editing a solo Piano piece in regard to timing, velocity and tempo as it was recorded in free form. I'm in no way trying to achieve without working for the result, but was wondering if their was a feature in Logic Pro that could help to quicken the process up?

Are you recording a digital piano or an acoustic one? If you record with a digital piano as MIDI date, you can "compress" timing as well. I believe it's called quantization or some such thing.

Most DAW's allow per note velocity editing of midi recordings. I would hope Logic Pro does too?

I think the OP doesn’t look for a per note velocity edition but a whole track batch transformation using a velocity conversion curve.

Perhaps something like JS:Midi Velocity Scaler/Compress on Reaper.

TheophilusCarter has asked the right question: "Are you recording a digital piano or an acoustic one?"

... because the OP's question is ambiguous.

This implies editing the sound: "I understand compression attenuates for the dynamics ..."

But this implies editing the MIDI data: ... there doesn't seem to be a feature that facilitates for the velocity of notes."

Which is it?

Thanks for your responses,

The recording is from a Yamaha P515 in to Logic Pro using MIDI.

I suppose my question is mainly focused on timing and the smoothing of notes without applying quantization as it is in free form. example, to record the Piano and then export that recording in to a plugin that would automatically detect the overall mechanics of the piece regarding tempo and velocity, and then reform it to what it assumes it should correctly sound like. Kind of like a "word correctional spelling" on a mobile.

However I'm not sure such a plugin exists?

If I dared, I would ask you if you want a plugin which transform a badly played piece of music into a nicely played.

I guess it would need a artificial intelligence and some parameters (swing ? Rubato ?)
