Humanizer for MIDI editor
I know, it's not even close to beta. But I'd like to make feature request for the MIDI implementation in Ardour 3.0 though. Unfortunately I am not able to compile the current svn, so I'm not able to check if such a feature is implemented already.
I'm planning to use a drum VST like 'Addictive Drums' (this one sounds just amazingly real). I'd add some notes in the MIDI editor and let Ardour play the drum part through my VST plugin. I've made a few tests with the demo version of Addictive Drums (and Rosegarden) and noticed that you have to change the velocity slightly for every note to make it sound less like a machine. It helps either to not quantize but rather move the notes slighty away from the beat.
What I like to see in Ardour when it comes to MIDI integration is a humanizer function. I imagine that you mark notes and open a little dialog where you can enter some values for minimum and maximum change (in % based on an adjustable note length) and some values for minimum and maximum change (in % of max. velocity). After clicking OK the humanizer should change the marked notes based on the given values.
Would this be possible to add in the 3.0 release or maybe in the near future after that release?
