Why does everybody hate iLok? Plug it in and never look at it again. Some use iLok. PG uses a 24 character serial number. It['s just protecting software from piracy. That's not okay? I have an iLok in my music computer for Pro Tools. I haven't had to touch it since I installed it 18 months ago. I don't get it.

Same here. iLok works easy for me in PT too. I use it on 2 PCs as well and have Melodyne registered on it too.

Thanks fiddler2007,
To be honest, for me, that video shows quite a lot of steps to do a MIDI edit.
The attached image shows the Data Filter in RB/PT, where much can be done very quickly via most of the Edit screens, including MIDI-Randomize.

Maybe I'm set in my ways, or maybe this is just quicker for me.
There are parameters that seem to take lots of steps in the video, but in RB/PT just require checking a box in the MIDI edit screens.

Yeah, the UI isn't as nice, but the control is there. .. unless I'm missing something. In any Edit screen look for the Data Filter checkbox, then you get control of a lot of this data for any edit you need.

Well i use presets most of the time, abundantly present, and sometimes make one up or adapt another, and save it if it's useful. F.i. you can be very selective, like edit only notes above, equal or below a certain pitch, velocity or controller value or length, channel # or range of channels, give them a new value as such; channel, length, controller type or randomize a parameter. Or just select them to delete. F

Band-in-a-Box®: Part of The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig!

Check out the latest Sweetwater article from Mitch Gallagher: "The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig" - he's included Band-in-a-Box!

"The king of backing track creation, in my opinion, is Band-in-a-Box (BIAB). It can do everything from country to jazz to metal, with a huge array of instruments and options. There is a great selection of songs and BIAB tracks available for free on the web, so you don’t even have to make your own."
