Getting velocity (variation) from midi generators
I like to compose aleatorically* with random seeds being generated from various and multiple midi plugins. Most of them have no way to self generate velocity so the output tends to be bang, bang, bang with all the notes the same intensity.
I have a work around that doesn't involve drawing the curves in manually after the fact in a midi editor/recorder.
Midi gen —> to AudioVeek's MidiTool Curve
Curve —> Instrument
In the Instrument's channel (AUM) in the effects slot place Mani Consulting's Velocity Filter
Route Curve —> Velocity Filter (Doug's video here **)
Step ? Profit. Have fun.

*music (also aleatory music or chance music; from the Latin word alea, meaning "dice") is music in which some element of the composition is left to chance, and/or some primary element of a composed work's realization is left to the determination of its performer(s)
