Series Let me know what you think.
This time I wanted to talk about note velocity. This is something you should think about whether it's a melodic sound or drum. In the image I have a hi-hat, changing the velocity like I did in an easy way to change the rhythm of the beat, and also to humanize a sound to give it an authentic feel. ·
Another tip, for FLStudio users. In the piano roll, if you go to the arrow (next to the wrench icon), Tools > Randomize (or you could press the wrench which is a shortcut). In the randomize menu, un select pattern, and use the "levels selection to play around with different volumes or panning options.
Try this in your songs, there are many settings that will quickly change your beat without adding more sounds. Let me know if you would like me to include midi examples for download.
