Project Input Transformer

The Project Input Transformer is a powerful tool for search and replace functions on MIDI data.

The Project Input Transformer works in real time. It filters out and transforms MIDI data while it is recorded. All settings that you make in the Project Input Transformer always affect the actual MIDI events you record.

You can use the Project Input Transformer as follows:

  • You can set up filter conditions to find certain elements.

    This can be elements of a certain type, with certain attributes or values, or on certain positions, in any combination. You can combine any number of filter conditions and make composite conditions using And/Or operators.

  • You can select the basic function to be performed.

    You can, for example, change the properties of the found elements or remove the elements.

  • You can set up a list of actions, which specify exactly what is done.

    This is not necessary for all functions.

By combining filter conditions, functions, and the specific actions, you can perform very powerful processing.

You need some knowledge about how MIDI messages are structured. However, there is also a rich selection of presets, allowing you to access its processing powers without delving into its more complicated aspects.

  • The settings of the Project Input Transformer affect all MIDI inputs and thereby all MIDI tracks. To transform MIDI data coming to a specific MIDI track before it is recorded, use the Track Input Transformer instead.

  • You can also use the Transformer MIDI effect to transform MIDI data. See the separate document Plug-in Reference.
