Hello this is Brandon with another Mix Minute, and today we’re going to humanize a midi bass.

Different midi velocities will have different levels of attack, and players typically don’t play every note as hard as humanly possible. So we’ll adjust the midi velocity to a range with a more natural attack.

Next we’ll use our DAW’s velocity randomization to add small changes to the attack of each note.

We can stop when the result blends itself into the mix without sounding robotic.

This technique demonstrated on V.M.GY’s “Aureus Necrosis”. Get a copy of these multitracks free from the cambridge educational multitrack archive. http://cambridge-mt.com/ms/mtk/#VMGY
